Getting Started


Well we've been putting the new sewing room to good use, so I've decided to start a little online shop. I've been making these wraps as gifts for friends. It's been so much fun that I decided to make a few extra and list them on ETSY. I'll have several more to list next week. Check it out and let me know what you think.

My life is so full of new experiences. Things happen that I would have never imagined.

Last week Havah woke up more than 30 minutes early. This isn't totally uncommon, but usually she'll go back to sleep and snooze for a bit longer. On this day she wouldn't! I came in to check in on her and found quite a surprise. Somehow she had undone her diaper. She and her bed were soaked and angry she was about it!

This morning was worse! She slept later than she usually does and when she finally woke up I went in and again found that she was very upset. I went to change her diaper and found an even better surprise...more poop than should ever come out of one baby at one time. The wonderful surprise had gone through her jamis, through her sleep sack, through the sheet and blankie down to the pad.

In other news, last month she got two new teeth and tomorrow we plan on trying them out (other than the refrigerated carrots she teethes on). I'm sure there will be a video or something to show you tomorrow.

Judah and Havah

What happens when you are left alone with the funnest person in your life for more than five minutes?

Something like this...


Well here are some pictures of the new sewing room. It's still in progress and a mess, but I'm LOVING it! I would never guess how much fun this would be. Last week Israel came down and did her homework at the new desk, Judah came and claimed her special spot, Christina has been studying and hanging out, and last night Sean came down and built us a fire! It's made the downstairs quite the hang out. I am so thankful for my life. I am in a city that I really like, near to the House of Prayer and the best part - surrounded by people who I love. I live with one of my dearest friends in the whole world, my Mom is here!!, I have the coolest kids in the whole world and I have the best husband ever! Havah has been great. She is growing and changing so quickly. She loves the new sewing room too. I put the pack and play down here and she loves playing in there while she can still peak out at us all.

Second Hand

Mom, Judah, Havah and I went to two local thrift shops in search of tables for the new sewing room. Not only did we find two great tables we also found a Snuggli to sell on craigslist, a thermos for Israel's lunch, a lamp shade, a tennis racket (for Judah of course), a musical table for Havah, some tupperware for Sean and the big highlight a garage with an elevator for Judah's cars. Total spent: less than $30

I'm not sure if I've ever really posted pictures of our family room. It is currently under a major makeover! Family room turned sewing studio! Woo Hoo! Pictures will follow. First I have to make a few more changes.
