Baby Pictures

I have been busy!! And with work starting I will be even more busy.
I am a little late posting these pictures considering we took them soon after Everett was born and he is now a month old.
A month old!?
Wow time FLYS!

Tania was the primary photographer for her own baby's pictures
and he couldn't have been any easier to work with,
making my job (the baby catcher and pose monitor) a breeze.
pose monitor=making sure the baby looks cute

I crocheted the hat and diaper cover
I crocheted this little elf hat too
Recognize the blanket from this post?

Saved the best for last!I have to post chronologically so these pictures are first and more blog posts to come.
I know that makes some of you smile.

I am a little anal.
a lot anal.

When I spend money on a shirt I want to make sure it will last.

I bought this shirt at Down East Basics
and while I love it
it is those pesky little jewels/beads
I don't love.

They are sewed on so...
I would use the word delicately
but more like cheaply.

I have had shirts like this in the past and one little tug those jewels can come right off.

I decided I wanted to reinforce each one.
anal? yes.
original stitching in dark-my stitching is a little lighter

It look me a few sittings to finish it, but it is done.

I used guterman thread which I was told is the best
and I really think it is.
James said,
"You know what is going to happen right?"
I said,
"Don't say it!"
He said,
"One is going to come off after all that work."

Well so be it. At least I can say I tried.

Eye Surgery

[4 brades[6].jpg]

I stole this from a blog and found it so fitting.

Last Thursday I had epi-LASIK eye surgery.
After consulting with the doctor I only had my right eye lasered
so that when I get old and have gray hair
-more than I do already-
I won't need reading glasses so soon.

Between the ages of 40-50 people commonly develop
Presbyopia which usually means needing reading glasses.

Okay I only had one eye done.
Sometimes I close my eye to relieve
any discomfort or I close it in attempt
to focus better on something
and when I did that once James made a comment
about me winking at him
which naturally leads to this fitting comic.

Also, after I woke up
on Friday (the day after the surgery) my eye was puffy and slightly closed
which made me look like I had a lazy eye.
Attractive I know.

Post-op isn't really that fun. I had to sleep A LOT and do
nothing, because I can't see. Thankfully I have one eye that still works
so it hasn't been THAT horrible.

epi-LASIK has its Pros! but recovery time is a Con.

A Perfect Pair's Creations

It has been awhile since I have posted some of the baby stuff that I have made.

In the beginning of the summer I sewed a stack of burp cloths.
These are the burp cloths that I currently have made.
I have much more fabric and a few fabrics I have yet to make.

The first time I saw a crinkle toy/taggie was at a baby shower and I thought it was cute. Then I saw them at a baby boutique and I thought "I can make those."
Here are the ones I have made.
They all have green, super soft, Minky fabric on the back.
The sizes are not exact but most of them are about 6in x 6in.

I hate when I forget to take pictures of a onesie and I have to resort to my camera phone. sigh.
