Wee-One Wednesday: One Month Down

Iris is one month old now. She is such a wonderful baby. She is a great eater and sleeper. She rarely cries, and is just content to be in the world. She loves being held, but can tolerate being put down. She doesn't mind loud noises or being hugged and patted again and again. We are very blessed!

It appears that "michellesbelles" won for my new blog's address. (Nice job, Betsy!) I have started working on it, and will let you all know when it is up and running. In the mean time, here is a lovely pic of my girls.

Sew Crafty Saturday: Gnome Sweet Gnome

There has not been much sewing over here lately, but that doesn't mean we are not crafting. I am almost finished with Lilly's second scrapbook and Lilly is discovering the joy of crafts. Yesterday, we painted a gnome for the garden. It was so much fun and she got pretty into it. She was even SILENTLY concentrating for a few minutes. Amazing! Putting in the garden this spring has been especially fun because Lilly has been a big part of it. She is amazed that the corn is growing and calls the seedlings her "babies" and she loves to water the plants. Even Iris loves to take in the fresh air of the garden. P.S. The gnome is from the dollar section at Target. How cool is that?
