What we've been up to.

It's gotten busy around here, but then slow at the same time. I have started back to work part-time (very part-time, like 9-12 hours a week) and it has been lovely. However it seems to make the days where I don't have work go very slowly, this also may be due to the Little One refusing her second nap three days this week. I thought she was dropping that nap then she went a whole week and a half with two naps and now for three days just one. So who knows.
Here are a few pictures of what we have been up to.

The laundry basket car was a huge hit, she cried when I got too tired of pulling it.

We took the kids I work with to the local art center, man this was so fun! We did an art project and toured one of the galleries. Watching their wonder and excitement made me tear up a little ( I have become such a cryer after having the Little One!).

She has pretty much decided that books are way better than toys and asks me to read her books all day long, there are quite a few I have memorized.

I got to take more pictures of our new niece and learned very quickly that is more difficult to take pictures of other people's babies than your own. We still got some good stuff and had some fun.

The hubs has made some more sweet wooden animals that have gone up in the etsy shop, I love them!

The Bug and the Shop.

Oh friends, I have had the stomach bug something fierce. I cannot tell you have thankful I am that it was a 24 hour bug...for the most part. Today I am still recovering, but I have been able to keep down the few things I have eaten and can walk from one room to another without having to sit down on the floor and rest. I was so thankful that my mother-in-law was able to take the Little One for the day and the hubs came home from work early because this girl was good for a whole lot of nothin'.

Before the bug hit I was working on a few things for the Etsy shop since it has been awhile. I even had a request for a custom order, those always make me feel good! So here are a few pictures, I haven't gotten the headbands up on the store yet because there is no way to get pictures onto your Etsy shop from the iPad...they really should fix that.

Aren't they sweet? I wanted the Little One to model them, but they are a little big for her and she rips off everything I put on her head now anyways.

This is a newborn hat that will be up in the shop too, it's made from organic cotton yarn and is so soft and cuddly.

I love how this ear flap hat turned out, and the Little One kept it on long enough for me to get a picture (notice I am holding one of her hands and her other hand is poised for the pull). This was the custom order I did and it's already on its way to the customer. I hope they love it!
