They are sleeping. It's funny that Sarah's belly used to make it to the edge of the couch. Now there's room for Elizabeth...though I guess Elizabeth was occupying the space Sarah's belly used to take...hmm.
Part II: The Saga of the Rocking Chair
It all began with an idea to make a rocking chair from scratch. I took the plan for a glider rocker base from online, then took many sheets of paper and drafted a plan for the rest. It felt like the good old days when I was in high school with our "Nerds of the North" building robots. Here's me planning after the base was constructed.
Working. What am I wearing?
Dorky white coat. "Wood doctor"? It kept the sawdust off my clothes and had nice pockets for ear plugs and my eye protection.
Finished with the rough design, but not yet polished.
Sarah testing the balance. I had to adjust the length of the legs to shift the center of gravity forward. Everything else fit her (I drafted the plan for the chair after making measurements of her sitting on various chairs).
Here's the finished product in the nursery. It took three months of working bit by bit with my school schedule. Got the cushion off of target.com.
Now, the best part! Sarah rocks and nurses Elizabeth here.
I'm glad it turned out well.
