On Snow and Babies and Darling Little Dresses
Okay, playing a bit of catchup here. First, we got some snow! Yay! Those snow boots I just got on clearance got some use afterall! Lyla got to take her first walk in the snow. There was sledding! And a snowman complete with strawberry eyes...brilliant! Inside, there was a giant veggie lasagna made with the help of my little jedi. Later that night, there was the Downton Abbey season finale. Did you watch it? What the heck?!?!
Someone turned 5 months. She is pretty much perfect. Yup. Well, minus the fact that she still wakes up about 10 million times every night. That aside, she's definitely perfect. She is rolling over and doing that thing that babies do when they roll over which is essentially face-planting and crying because they can't roll back. She seems to have warmed up to our daily outings of dropoffs and pickups for big bro and big sis and is starting to have a little routine of her own. She giggles and babbles and kicks and is just. perfect.
I made her another Hello Darling dress. Right after I finished the first, I pulled these fabrics for a second, more summery one. This one is a little bigger, hoping it will fit her for a while. People. This Heather Ross Nursery Versery fabric is ah-maz-ing! It is so soft and light, absolutely perfect for little ones. And, the mice! Eeeeep...they are just ridiculously cute! And what softer fabric to pair it with than Little Folks voile. This is the Pastry Line Dobby version which, in case you're interested, you can still find here. I covet that stuff.
So, in other news Dulcie (our dog) ate every last bite of the kids Valentine's candy in the middle of the night a few days ago. Lollipops, chocolates, you name it. She practically ate the valentines. And, guess what? They haven't even noticed! And, the dog hasn't even died! Thinking this was a win-win. : )
