One year ago......

We got sleep at night and didn't have bags (steamer trucks to be precise) under our eyes...

Traveling to visit family didn't require intensive planning and a uhaul....

When being big was actually fun.......

We could go places and not worry about someone eating sand......

But we wernt a complete family yet.........

We needed our Baby Blue!!!

Turkey Day!!

I'm thankful for everything God has given me! I have my Hottie who loves me for who I am, a beautiful baby who thinks I'm the greatest thing on earth (except for whatever it is that is obviously more interesting over my shoulder.) I have a gorgeous home, healthy family, the greatest friends and most of all a God who has blessed me so much.
I'm so thankful that my son survived a tumble down some of our stairs and that his angels were working overtime, so that he not just survived but he came away with the littlest pink bump on his head.
Also (this on is my shallow one :) I'm thankful that I'm finally fitting into my pre- pregnancy fat pants. I have a huge stack of pants that fit me before I was pregnant, one of those is my fat pants and two days ago I put them on and THEY FIT. That in and of itself is just plain amazing. I never thought I would see the day that I could wear pre-pregnancy jeans but it happened and YAY!!! When they say 9 months to go back to your body they are right! Who ever "they" are. Now just to get rid of that lovely extra padding I have in the back... Stay tuned for the day I can wear my pre-pregnancy regular jeans and breathe at the same time!!

Hooked on Crafts

Yesterday Baby Blue and did a little gardening and it was so beautiful outside it kind of went to my head and I went a little nuts and started fall cleaning Baby Blues room. Going thru all his clothes was kind of rough. I was trying not to cry and was laughing at his silliness at the same time. Apparently when mom is pulling out stuff and making a mess then its MESS TIME. I would stack his folded clothes in the rubber maid and he was pulled up on it flinging them out.

The toy sorting got even messier.
I forgot about taking a pic till I had gotten the piles mostly out of there.

Oh and I totally forgot to take a picture of Baby Blues first mouth full of dirt. He made a hilarious face and tried another bite. hahhaha I love my boy :D

Baby Blue made an amazing discovery of cabinets. I had been waiting for this and had already moved all the sharp or things that could be bad to out of reach places and made him a drawer of stuff he could play with. Though he really doesnt have any interest in the things anymore its more that he looooooooves opening and slamming the drawers and cabinets.

Even though Baby Blue still isn't an great sleeper and wakes up a few times a night evenings are when I can have uninterrupted time to make things. I tired playing with crafts during hte day but my son thinks hes a goat and everything he finds goes in his mouth. Even the tiniest scrap of paper. So when he goes down I make coffee and start playing! Lately my new obsession is..... Christmas stockings!

I used trusty ol' google to find some ideas and then I got a big stack of newspaper and sharpies and started drawing. It took about 6-7 drawings of each before I was happy with them.

I couldn't decide if I was going to add buttons to Baby Blues but a friend of mine is totally right and buttons would make his more child-like. I'm considering getting large multi sized purple sequins and sewing a few onto Mchotties so it has a polka dot appearance. Mine already has the bead trim and I think that finished that one off pretty nicely.

I'm going to make some for Skittles for Christmas (dont worry she reads this blog but she already knows) and after that Id kind of like to make them to sell but it would only be worth it if I could get $25 each. What do yall think? I hate listing things on Ebay and I cant imaigne Etsy would be any less hassel. Im more of a buyer... LOL

Off to take care of my Baby Blue!!

P.S Arnt they just the cutest?? I love my guys!
