Go to sleep without a peep!

Mr. Miles continues to be a relaxed baby. Melanie and I were just talking about how challenging Helena was in comparison. She never wanted to sleep--FOR TWO YEARS!!! Miles has been cutting his parents a break. He gets up once in the night already and so far, has slept really well from about 2 am til at least 6 or 7. Anyone who has had infants know that 5 hours uninterrupted sleep is such a gift! My mother swears that because he was a larger baby he will be sleeping through the night in a week or two (we'll see).
All this baby-sleep happiness reminded me of an old UFO I had so I drug that out. The binding is a bit wonky--it is from when I was still following Quilt Police regulations and I had a tough time with that wee bit of fabric holding things together. Still I finished this it week and thought it would make a nice wallhanging in Miles' room.
I love the little saying fabric that I found years ago and I had fussy cut it so the child could read the sayings. I still love that fabric and wish I had more of it...

Winnie the Pooh is in the center of the block and seems appropriate for a boy's room. This is a really small wallhanging --the centers are 2.5 inch blocks but I was using up some scraps at the time. I'm just glad another UFO is complete and I'll take it down to the kids' house today.

Adorable Quilt/Hanging!!!

How wonderful that he is only getting up once a night! I have friends who just had their first...a boy, 22 inches long at birth..he just turned 1 month and has been sleeping through the night for the past week! Proof that is can happen!!

He is such a cutie. I had to go back and read all the updates I missed. My kids were pre-schoolers when we adopted them so I didn't get to enjoy the baby years with them. But being the oldest of four, with the other 3 being much younger, I got to change plenty of diapers! Being a big sister is a big job, tell your sweet grandaughter she's doing great!
