My Nap Time Project


Well, I've started a little bit of a project :) I really want to make Joel giving up his bed to the baby a big and happy deal! So, I had the idea of making him a new blanket/quilt for him. And let me tell you... I haven't made a quilt before ever. And this was really intimidating. I really feel like I've accomplished a lot. Only the cutting out of the applique is done. Not any of the real 'sewing' part. But I'm proud. I feel like I'm doing something that I could possibly love to do.

I'm so proud :)


















Like how my belly snuck into this last one? Only a week and a half left!

Maybe I'll post some pictures :)

Generation: Growing Up Too Fast.

Joel and I had to leave the park early today because some bigger kids were using some inappropriate language. And I'm not talking "poop" and "fart" jokes. These were words that made me blush.

I was so shocked. More like sad, really. And disappointed in parents that would use such language around little ears.

It made me want to lock my babies in our small little world forever.

Don't parents want to keep their babies, babies forever? Am i wrong? I mean, there is a decent amount of "exposure" that a child will have no matter what. But if I as a mother, can keep him as pure as I can, is there nothing better than that?

......

it also made me fear public school with a passion.

Can you count to "Thank You"?

Well Joel can. This is probably one of Joel's cutest "tricks". :)

Has it Started?


Have the terrible two's started? This morning while i was at the doctors and i got home to find a hole in Joel's shirt.

I asked Jared about it and he said, "yeah, he got a hold of your scissors."

Well, not too bad, I guess. Just a snip.

So after his nap, he snuck back into our room and i look over and he found the scissors again and was continuing to snip at his clothing....



I took the scissors away, and he laughed.

Great.
