Little man was trying to help daddy with a few things lately...

We started at our favorite architectural salvage store looking at some lumber.

Then we went to the plant nursery where daddy used to work and shopped for some plants and say hello to some former coworkers.

Finally, this afternoon little man is helping mommy and daddy turn the "Plum Sweet" jelly roll (http://www.missouriquiltco.com/shop/detail/17229/moda-fabrics/blackbird-designs/plum-sweet-jelly-roll-) (and matching charm pack) into a quilt for Sawyer's cousin's first birthday next month. I'm not sure what this pattern is called, it is sort of a scrappy/uneven bento box. I'm happy with how it is coming along but quilting is more difficult when you have to keep stopping to put pacifiers back into mouths or feeding and diaper changes. Oh well, we have until Easter to finish.

**The cell phone camera and poor lighting in the basement quilting room do not do justice to the colors/patterns in this fabric line.

Daddy's helper gets cuter and cuter each time we see him! Can't wait to see your finished quilt top, I bought that plum sweet jelly roll and looking for an inspirational pattern for it.

I wish I had half that young man's energy. He's sure getting around a lot. He has great taste, too!

Looks like you have a great helper. I like the idea of having mini Cooper as our mascot. He is certainly growing to fast.

Yep----ANYthing takes longer with a babe......but just wait till he can move on his own. You need to plan ahead for those toddler years now! He is growing so fast and is so adorable! Precious pics! Thanks for sharing!

Too funny Sandy! And then I got the mental image of us IN a front carrier! How great would that be if DH had one in OUR size that we could just plop in to when we were out and just got too tired?!?

With such a cute distraction like Sawyer I couldn't work on a quilt, I would be playing and talking with him just to get him to give me one of his cute smiles.

LOVE the checked shirt Sawyer is wearing in the first two pics! Goes with Daddy's outfit beautifully.

And although Sawyer is clearly the star of these photos, the quilt is going to be very pretty. :D

Well I am sure yor cell camera did a bad job, but really Ryan, do you think any of us noticed the fabric with cute little Sawyer in the picture? He just gets cuter by the day!
