These are pictures from our family picture day a few weeks ago. (I tried to upload more pictures of my husband and I with G, but let's just say the computer and I are not agreeing right now.)
I made these blocks! Gracie was born December 24th and around the first week of February I had the great idea that I would make her blocks for Valentine's Day. I am still working on them. They're pretty much done, but an occasional side needs a little polyurethane.
Gracie was also a model for a photographer friend that we know, Jessica Orton. I decided to go ahead and buy the CD from Jessica, so I'll add a few pictures eventually of that photo session.
On another topic, WHY do baby outfits have to be so awkward to put on!??! Gracie has one sleeper where - litterally - the zipper only goes down to mid-thigh. How am I supposed to be able to drag out one foot while the other is stretching out the other side of the fabric, I have kicking child who is trying to roll over, and then I just realized I have no diapers in the drawer!?!
In other highlights from my life recently, my sister came to stay with me part of last week while my hubs was at a "Top Gun" training (which, ironically has NOTHING to do with guns).
Here was the jist of the conversation:
April: When I used to live in Virginia, I would drive by an alpaca farm every day to work. So one day that got me thinking, how much does an alpaca cost?
April: So when I got to work that day, I was looking up alpacas on my computer.
April: And then my coworker Nan came over and asked what I was doing. And I told her, 'Looking up how much an alpaca costs.'
Me: *laughing so hard there are tears in my eyes*
April: And she said that alpaca wool was a hot commodity. And our plan was to make our own alpaca yarn and knit dog hats.
Me: *laughing so hard I fall off my chair*
April: The kids would love those.
Me: *laughing and kicking the floor*
April: Why are you laughing? That was our plan in case we got laid off.
Me: *shows her this picture of dog hat off of etsy*
