A Birthday Gift

 A friend of mine has a daughter who turned the big one in July. I haven't seen her since the end of July and am now just giving her a present! Hope she still fits into it! This was fun to make and I love the large single letters on shirts. This was my first time making a headband...its a little messy but it works. I saw an idea from my friend's craft blog Something Wonderful for a fabric rosette pin and just adapted it for a headband. Here are some pictures!

Dillon {9 months}

Dilly Dilly boo.....where to begin with you? You have blossomed so much over the past month and are turning into a little smarty pants! Here is what you have been up to...

You went to the doctor for your 9 month check up and got a "he's perfect" from the doc. You weigh 19 pounds and are 30 and 3/4 in long!!  We knew you were long but didn't expect that long! Time for a big boy car seat!

You still sleep well at night and take two naps during the day. You like to sleep with your paci and your wubbi but will go to bed without them, thank goodness.

You are on the move even more and you are getting into everything! You like to crawl around the house and explore. Sometimes you and your doggie like to play together but we have to remind you to be nice to him. You also like to open drawers and cabinets and empty them out. What a fun game! You are pulling up on everything now and have had some of your first boo boos.

You are a smart boy and understand some words without any hand gestures. You know clap, milk, eat, more, all done, "where's your doggie", night night and no. You have been really into clapping your hands and dancing to music.

You finally have some teeth! Two on the bottom and I'm sure more are coming because you always have your fingers in your mouth!

You have been eating some new foods like cottage cheese, hummus, spaghetti, and cheddar cheese. You are starting to like table foods a lot more than baby food. And you love to feed yourself! You also drink some water or juice from a sippy cup sometimes.

Some of your favorite toys are your basketball hoop, cell phones, remotes, anything that plays music, and laundry hampers.

You took your first trip to the beach with mommy and daddy. You had a blast and loved touching and eating the sand. You weren't too sure about the big waves at first but once you knew you were safe, you loved the water too!

You have such a sweet spirit and we love your big smile. It just melts mommy's and daddy's heart. You better use it to your advantage while you can still get away with stuff! ;)  We love you, Bubee!

Yummy Colors

When my friend asked me to make some unisex burp cloths for a friend of hers, the first colors that came to mind were bright greens, oranges, reds and browns. I love this color combo and I think they would look good for a boy or girl!
Next project is for Evan...the Panthers start their regular season next weekend so he wants Dillon to be dressed in his Panthers gear! Now if only the shirts he bought would just shrink from toddler size to infant size...

What we've been up to...

We have been busy, busy bees the past couple weeks. I had the last week of Aug off so I packed as much as I could into that week, so it felt like 2 weeks off!  Here is a quick update with pictures(duh) of what's been goin on!
-We went to the beach for a mini family vacation, Dillon had a blast in the sand and water. He also loved the aquarium!
-Came home and had a visit from Jenna and Mike. Dillon loves his godmommy!
-My mom came into town the next day and brought the best cherry tomatoes from her garden. We went to a Pampered Chef party that night at my friend Nicole's and had some good laughs with everyone!
-The following day, Dillon and I got together with his buddies and my friends, Amy and Teri. It was fun to catch up with them and chat about mommyhood.
-I started doing some photography on the side at Duke, taking pictures of newborns on the L&D ward. It is exciting and I just love seeing all those little itty bitty babies(I know what you are, it does not make me want a second one quite yet, haha)!
We had some family time over the weekend at the park, Dillon LOVES the swing...maybe he will get one for his birthday, but don't tell him.  ;)
