one, two, three.

i forgot to post the three month pictures of norah in her "3" onesie last week. so here are all three months so far. click to enlarge. :)

with the monkey

and on ethan's ikea rug.

$642 dollars and 75 cents.

THAT is how much this stuff would have cost if i'd paid full price for it all. shocking! instead, i paid $500 LESS!

babyhawk add on!

when i ordered my babyhawk, it was a custom, and i added on a toy ring. once i got it , it seemed pretty useless. here's what it looks like:

lately, norah has really been enjoying her grab toys, but she drops them. a lot. i saw similar things for pacifiers, and thought, "why not!" now i can clip her toys to the ribbon and the ribbon to the "toy ring" on the baby hawk. i made one with a bigger space for toys (on the right) because not all of them are as thin as the kringelring on the left. :)

it was an easy and useful project - my fave! now i want to make a hundred more!

bedding sneak peek.

i'm making norah some bedding for the sidecar/crib. so far i've got two flannel fitted sheets and the quilt (my first!) cut up and ready. i also am going to make a cute ruffle pillow, that i am 1/2 way done. i don't have any pictures of that, though.

here's the first sheet i did last week. all the fabric is form sandi henderson's line for micahel miller called ginger blossom.

both of the sheets are flannel & super soft. all the sheets i've made of the kids are flannel. i'm a sucker for a soft sleeping space.

the start of my first quilt. no promises. it doesn't look like it's going to be very straight, even with all the measuring i did today, no two pieces are the same size, lol. we'll see!
all laid out!

rita, rita, you are so sweet-a! ;)

rita is an awesome gal! check out the super cute diaper she gifted norah from olive plants! to be honest, wahm diapers NEVER work for us - they always wick around the legs no matter what i try - but this DIDN'T!!

AND, since rita gifted norah her own choice of diaper cover, elisabeth (ms. olive plants, lol) even went shopping for fabric that i was looking for that she didn't have in stock - how cool is that!? go check her out ... and norah's cute little eyelet butt. :)
