One of the unexpected joys of Isaac being under the weather is that he has been taking long naps. He's been giving me about 4 hour stretches the last several days and for a boy that will only nap a few times a week on average, this is huge. And honestly? We both needed it.
During one of his marathon sleeping sessions, I puttered around with these photos and put together this scrapbook page. I took my sweet time. I tried out different types of letter stickers until I found just the right ones. I got out my sewing machine and went bananas with my zig-zag stitch (can you see it? around the border, on each photo, little bits here and there...). And I spent a long time at the computer trying to figure out what I wanted to say... though ultimately I ended up with a "this will have to do" feeling about the whole writing part.
Usually I scramble through projects like this hoping to finish and get things put away before the next thing begins. And I think that's fine. I totally get a kick out of squeezing this stuff in. But it was really nice to relax and tinker.
