My sweet friend Kristin, wearing a simple flower headband.
I absolutely love a challenge and have never seen something that I couldn't make! If you have a crochet wish, comment on this post and we'll see if we can't make it come true!!

Well, you would never know it by looking at this sweet face (Cheek full of grapes that she wouldn't chew and swallow), but My B has been a wild child for the last couple of days. Did you ever watch a child misbehaving and think, "That parent should get control of their child!" or "When I have kids they will never act like that!" ....yeah...so did I...and today that kid was my kid!
My awesome Mother has been crocheting her fingers off as well! Ever since my Etsy page has taken off so well she has been throwing in items to help out! All of the shoulder bags on my website were made by my mom! She's amazing.
Now here is about the coolest thing I think I've seen so far!! This is a reversable and extremely versatile item! It is a poncho for a little girl to be worn either side out, turtle neck, or folded down as you see in the picture, but it is also a perfect little skirt! Absolutely adorable to layer over a pair of tights or leggings on a chilly day!
My mom is a Genius!! She is why I am creative. Who am I kidding, she is why I am anything that I am. You are blessed Mamma. I love you.

L...the one who started the uproarious night that we had last night, was still mighty fussy today, but the bath really cheered him up. He had a great time!! He just chilled out, leaned back, and crossed his legs! (Check out his funny little toes!!)

Although my life is not that shabby
My children three have worn me out
I may just join them. Sit and shout.
I've cried and laughed and laughed and cried
I've tried, and given up, and tried
I layed them down to sleep at seven
and here it is almost eleven
Not only are they still awake
They shake and scream and scream and shake
I think their tummies are in pain
I see them roll and push and strain
And now you'll find their mommy crying
I cannot fix it, but I'm trying
So, I tried something new! Funny!!! I love it. My friend Brandi (an amazing photographer)made the request and I thought I'd give it a shot.
As far as the other diaper cover, I think I'm going to tweak it and make it into a soaker. I'll post pictures when I'm done. It should be recognizable.

Hey, if any of you have actually tried wool soakers and/or diaper covers, I would like your feedback on how this one looks. I'm flying a bit blind here. I had one mom tell me that she wouldn't personally ever buy a wool soaker that tied shut. She prefers a drawstring. I would love to know your opinions. Would you buy a wool soaker that tied, buttoned, or had elastic in it? Is drawstring the only way to go? Let me know.
It was E's first dentist visit and he still did pretty well. He didn't want to open his mouth. LOL! The dentist had to practically pry his mouth open with a gloved finger! I was terrified that E would bite him! Thank Heaven he didn't! All in all it went pretty well. We went ot McDonald's for lunch as a treat and then made it home in time for nap. (Crochet time for Mama!!)
Friday evening my sister, who I haven't seen in close to a year, came to visit!!! She brought her two kids. N is about to be 3. He is 3 months younger than my Little B and 10 months older than E Bug, and S is 6 months old, exactly 2 weeks older than my L. Needless to say, living far apart, we hadn't gotten to meet the youngest additions to eachothers families. Mom and Daddy got to come for the weekend too. It was a wonderful wonderful wonderful few days.
Here is a picture of my sweet sister(Crystal)
Here's my Daddy aka PawPaw holding S with L in the background. (Just look at the beautiful babies and ignore the laundry that's flowing over the edge of the kitchen table!)
What a wonderful time!
Crystal brought me the biggest surprise! When we were kids we saved and saved and saved to buy a dollhouse kit. We ran a lemonade stand and babysat and all number of little jobs to get enough money. Mom and dad covered tax and we bought it!! We came right home and started putting it together, but it became more and more evident that it would require adult assistance and there just wasn't time. I thought that it had been lost or destroyed in a move or something, but unbeknownst to me, when Crystal found out that I was expecting a baby girl she asked for the kit from my mom and dad. She took it home and started builing it(again). It was very involved. She even had to mold her own bricks out of the mortar mix that they provided and the shingles for the roof were all in a bag...etc. Long story short, she finished it and brought it to go in Little B's room! The kids love it. They have already spent countless hours playing with it and we don't even have furniture in it yet! The picture is of N, Crystal's oldest. :) What a cutie!!
The next few days were spent crocheting, visiting, eating good food and having fun! Crystal actually kept the kids one evening so that John and I could go out! We have had a sitter come before, but no one has ever told us..."Just go and don't hurry. Don't worry about a thing. If I need you, I'll call you. Take as long as you like! Be sure to see a movie and eat dinner!!!" It was so amazing! It was like having a glimpse of life before kids. So worry free! What a refreshing reprieve! Thank you SuperSis!!
