Here's our busy boy talking away!

Here are some Christmas/birthday presents that I'm finally finishing up!

Subway Art for H's room

I made this using the Cricut that husband got me for Christmas! =)

Here is a shirt I made for my friend for Christmas

It was really easy! I cut the sleeves to make 3/4 sleeves and then used the cut sleeves to make the ruffles. You can read about how to make the ruffles here

This was supposed to be H's birthday present... it didn't get finished until after Christmas... he really likes it though! I found this great tutorial and decided H needed a floor cushion. I used a heavy weight knit fabric, which makes it really soft, but it doesn't hold it's shape as well as an upholstery fabric would.

Also in the works, baby shower gifts!! So excited for all of my pregnant pals! And now I have an excuse to practice sewing baby things!!!

Growing Up

It has been wonderful to have 2 weeks off work to spend with H... but let me tell you, we are entering a a much more 'challenging' stage of parenting. It is really fun to see him growing up and developing more of a personality, but I guess I thought we had longer before the disobedience and limit testing... adventures in parenting here we come!
In other news, I registered to take the GRE in February. I decided (with some sister
persuasion) that there really is no good time to go back to school and that if it really is what I want then I just have to do it. So, here goes nothing!

H's first meeting with Santa Claus. It went about as well as expected...

My new favorite picture of our little man and all of his 11 teeth!

After several attempts...this was the best Christmas picture we were gonna get.

Playing at Grandma & Grandpa's house!

H looooves to be outside. He goes to the door about 20 times a day and tries to open it - fortunately he can only reach the handle, he can't turn it yet. Happy New Year every one!
