M's Favorite Face

I thought I'd share with you M's favorite face of all time.

She makes this face when she is sad, happy, doesn't want to eat anymore, you name it.

I never get tired of it!

11 Months

M turned 11 months last Sunday. I thought I'd take some photos. She thought otherwise.
I felt like a paparazzo chasing her around trying to catch a smile.

She was too busy being herself to pay much attention to me.

I must have taken nearly a hundred photos and ended up with these for you.

Enjoy! We sure do. Love you, M!

A New Project

I have had this idea for a messenger bag for a really long time, and I finally made it today! Some of the pillow covers I originally made ended up slightly flawed in the corners, making them unusable for pillows. I didn't know what to do with them right at first, but I held onto them and came up with this.

It's hard to see in the photo, but I stitched the fabric onto the bag with fuchsia embroidery floss. With the red-orange fabric, the fuchsia is actually a bit toned down.

So glad to see this project turn out! I listed it in my Etsy shop.

Christmas Festivities

We had a some great Christmas parties and get-togethers with family this year. It was M's first Christmas! We spent Christmas Eve with Chris's family.

M got really into the sing-along. She bounced up and down to the beat and smiled the whole time.
We did a little bit of Christmas morning at home. M got some sweet toys, but she really loved the shiny bows on the packages the most. I also made her a new baby quilt.

Later on Christmas morning, we went up to my family's for the rest of the day.
Here's Grandpa with both of the babies, M and O.
Tom and Clark headed up the Christmas songs.
Once again, M loved the music.
Thanks for all the fun this year, everyone!

We really needed the break.
