1 month down

I haven't updated in a few weeks, I know. I apologize to the 3 or 4 of you who actually read this blog every now and then. ;)

So, what's been going on around here, you ask? Just pretend you asked, ok? Ok.

Well first of all, my tiny babies are huge. Ok, they were already huge, but now they're ginormous. I let Riley pick out her own clothes this day, which is why she's brighter than an old school highlighter.

On the way home the night the above picture was taken, I found a field full of female elk and their calves. I was way too excited about this and pulled over to take pictures. This was my favorite of the bunch.

The table is finally finished! I didn't even have a heart attack when Riley smeared tuna fish all over it the first time we ate at it. It was a close call, but we all survived, table included.

Riley's first pigtails! Enough said.

And finally, here's a preview of the bedding I'm making for a dear friend and her baby boy. I love it so much that I'm now considering doing Nathan's big boy bedding in cowboys instead of airplanes.

My newest favorite chubster

This is best friend's baby. All nice and clean, and not fresh from the womb like the last picture you saw. Of her hair. I know. Anyway, we did her newborn photo shoot today. This is my second favorite picture from the bunch. I'd love to show you all my favorite, but the beauty of it would be lost if I had to edit out the personal info, so you get the second favorite.

I have never seen a newborn that sleeps as much as this little beauty. :)

Crazy week

I haven't updated in a week, I know. I apologize. It's been a little insane around here. I spent the week trying to make some pretty important phone calls (did you know it's nearly impossible to get through to any kind of military administrative offices during their insanely short business hours?), registering the kids for childcare on this side of town (because sometimes Mommy needs a break and can't drive 30 minutes one way for 4 hours of daycare), working on my table, playing with the duo, and birthing a baby. Well, I didn't birth a baby obviously, but I helped BFF.

Here is my beautiful dining room table, all sanded down and stained. All it needs now is a coat or two of satin wood sealer, and for me to find the time and energy to get out there and apply it.
I think this might be my favorite picture that I've taken in a very long time. There is nothing better than the look on a mom's face when she meets her child for the first time. Needless to say everyone in the room was crying at this point. This is my best friend, and her newest daughter, taken just seconds after she was born.
