Hunter is now 11 weeks old and I have been back in the studio for 5 weeks. You would think that in 5 weeks I would have gotten back on the horse.. but not so much. I have made 15 cups and a bunch of test tiles. I only get 30 minutes at a time and somedays don't get anytime at all.

Our nap schedule is erratic and I'm on the worlds shortest leash. He doesn't seem to sleep more than 30 minutes at a time if I'm not in the room. If i'm next to him he will snooze for 2hrs at a time. Now I just need to figure out how to get him to nap next to the wheel ;)

because of my new time restraints I have found it really difficult to work with porcelain. I was rocking the Highwater helios at cone 9 before pregnancy. Now that doesn't seem to be the best option. I'd like to find a cone 6 body/glazes.

I got a few different samples and am working on test tiles and new glazes. I'll let you know how this goes next year when I finally get to finish something. (Hopefully Hunter will start to nap without me soon) So I have some highwater ellen buff, brownstone, speckled brownstone little loafers and standards dark brown (266) porcelain (213)

little loafers and 213 dry way to quickly for my new way of life and i'm not that attentive anymore to ways of covering up and controlling the dry time.

I love the way the 266 feels/thros, I hope I can get some good results with it.

So I'm still adjusting to new life and trying to figure it all out. Hunter is adjusting well, he is trying to find his thumb and gets pissed when he loses it. Otherwise I couldn't have asked for a happier baby.

no babies or balls were hurt during this picure

Very cute pic of you all at the bowling alley. Good luck with getting into a schedule, you'll figure it all out.
