Well, it’s happened. Nesting has begun. I went from having to-do lists in the back of my mind to having them on paper (in multiple places around the house, ha!) and filling the Amazon cart repeatedly. Here’s some of the things I’ve been up to. It reads kind of like a to-do list, and for… Continue reading Nesting gone crazy!
As much as Noah drives me nuts (let’s face it, he’s 2), he is so sweet. I worked really hard cleaning the other day, but that always seems to start up my Braxton Hicks, so I was forcing myself to sit on the couch and do nothing.

Do you remember the Cookie Monster hat I made for Noah’s Halloween costume? It is the first hat that he has ever worn voluntarily and for more than 2 minutes at a time. In fact, he still puts it on from time to time. Funny kid! This is a free pattern from Patterns for Pirates… Continue reading Not-so-slouchy beanies
