Cutie Pie mini album

I finished my first project from Elsie & Rachel's class today. A little felt & cardstock mini-album with snapshots of Lachlan from this month. Of course I'm behind on all the rest of the projects, but I did pick up fabric for a couple more this afternoon. I scored the perfect cutesie pirate fabric on clearance for an "X marks the spot" picnic blanket. Hopefully I'll get to that one soon!

Stocking up

Made a run to JoAnn's for embroidery floss, it was on sale. I'm planning on using a bunch during Elsie and Rachel's class that started today. It's going to be so inspiring!

Amazing Race season 14 started tonight, too! I can't believe Bill and I have watched all the seasons together! It's our all-time favorite show. Looks like some fun teams this time.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Sorry, not much of a blogger lately, but I wanted to wish you all a Happy Valentine's Day. Hope the day brings you all the snuggles and smooches you can handle!

This is just a funny one of Lachlan scavenging under the high chair for Cheerios.

a break from winter

We got out for a walk yesterday afternoon and enjoyed the unseasonably warm temperatures and sunshine. Between the crazy below zero temperatures and all the sickness in January, I feel like we've been hibernating. This nice weather makes me want to get outside, but also get busy around the house again! I've got a to-do list going for this weekend, hopefully I can accomplish a big chunk (do you ever add something to your list that you just recently accomplished, just so you can check it off?). Handmade birthday cards, check. Target run, check. Clothes folded & put away, check. :)
Thankfully, Lachlan is starting to feel better. We went in to the Dr. on Wednesday afternoon for his 9 month "well" check-up. Unfortunately he was not very well - I thought it was just a cold+cough, but she found ear infections in both ears. Poor guy! He's such a trooper that we never suspected anything was wrong with his ears. Apparently most of the babies coming in for check-ups lately have not been well either, lots of junk going around. But now the amoxicillan is doing it's job - and it must taste great, because he sucks it down and fusses when I put the bottle away!
Everything else is going great, he's right on track for height & weight (way up at the top for head size! ha) and crawling, pulling up, babbling, etc, just like he should be. Now it's time to find the perfect baby gate for our extra wide hallway doorway and the next size carseat. So many choices, it is confusing!! Hopefully I'll be back with some valentines and scrapbook pages to share soon. Enjoy the warm weather and finally getting rid of the ice if you are nearby!
