Hello! I’m on a short hiatus from making binders and templates these days to take care of baby but I’m always on the hunt for cool ideas and inspiration. My fave site to post links is Pinterest – follow my DIY Planner and Printable boards if you’re on there too!
After using the original Breastfeeding Log for a couple of weeks I pretty much quit updating the poops and pees, too many to count! I also noticed I was constantly flipping back through the pages to compare what times she was feeding at night. Decided to create two new versions that fit more feedings and organize by day. Having the lists next to each other will make day comparisons a snap.

Pepper turned one month old on July 21st, awe! If you’d like to see more pictures and follow along with the mommy stuff I have a little blog up for that here: http://www.micro-bird.com
I’ll be posting updates here as well, just not as often. :)
Before Pepper was born I did a bunch of searching for monthly photo ideas. I ended up procrastinating and barely had time to throw this together at the last minute. The last minute being before the sun when down on the day of her 1 month birthday, haha. Luckily, I’m really happy with the way it turned out! She’s SO cute. xo
Anybody else feel like nursing is one big guessing game? Pepper’s gaining weight though and seems pretty stuffed after eating, so… I guess we’re good! I still like tracking her feedings though, watching patterns emerge and knowing if she’s hungry or just fussy.
I looked around the internet for a printable breastfeeding log and they’re all pretty complicated, so I made a simple one. A free 8.5 x 11 breastfeeding log for tracking feed times, breast sides, poops and pees of your little newborn. I color in the triangle depending on which breast she feeds from first and make notes about naps on the right. Pretty boring, but it’s hard to color and draw while holding a little baby! :)

And how could I do a post about breastfeeding without including a picture, she’s just SO cute!
20 inches long and 7lbs, 8.6 beautiful ounces. Oh what a day! xoxo
Baby Countdown: 1 week, 5 days ’till due date!
I finally finished my little pink and yellow crooked quilt (left) – on the right is a larger and more-perfect quilt made by my very talented mom.
After about 6 inches of whip stitching the binding I stopped – it looked awful and felt really rough. I checked my mom’s binding and of course, being perfect and all, you can’t even see the binding stitch! I sent off an email to see how she did it and took out all the previous stitches. She sent back this youtube video of the quilting ladder stitch (at 24:25 in the video) – easier, faster and it looks wonderful!
I can’t see myself ever being a full-time quilter, I’m way too impatient and messy for measuring and perfect squares. However, there’s such a huge sense of accomplishment on finishing that I don’t get with many other projects. Awesome. :)
