It's that time of the year...

School is back in session!

Not that it really affects me at all yet, but it was so cute to see all of the parents out this morning walking their little tykes to school. I couldn't help but smile and imagine myself doing the very same thing in a few years. It seems so far away...but I know it'll be here before I know it.

We had a bit of a rough night with the little one. Around 2am he woke up screaming. I felt so helpless sitting there rocking the little man while he sniffled and tried to catch his breath. Part of me just wanted to hold him like that for the rest of the night, but neither of us would have gotten any sleep that way. So after around 15 - 20 min, he finally fell back asleep, and slept the rest of the night in his crib. I feel like he may be teething possibly...but I feel like I've been saying that for the last couple months. Do teethers tend to spit up a bit more then usual? Over the last week or so, I feel like he's been spitting up a bit more then usual. He spit up quite a bit this morning on our walk, and then threw up the rest of it when we got home. I would be alarmed, except that he's been his perfectly happy self all morning. Maybe it's just a fluke?

This whole parenting thing has been one of the most rewarding yet frustrating things I've experienced to date. He is one of the joys of my life (along with his Daddy), which makes it so frustrating and sad when you're not really sure what to do. I feel like I should have all of the answers, but sometimes you just don't. He's a pretty happy kid most of the time, so we must be doing something right...right?

Bunny Wove...


And what a gorgeous morning it is! Morning walks are so much more enjoyable when you're not dripping with sweat the whole time :)

So mr. man certainly has his share of little loveys, but I've had an idea of making one for him for awhile now, and decided to work on it this weekend.

I love the look of combining different textures, like chunky knits and cotton. So I decided to take the head of the bunny stuffed animal, and then combine it with some fun plaid flannel (I told you I was really into it), and super soft minky!

With it being so beautiful outside, and then of course morning light (my fav for snapping photos), I had Addison try out little bunny wove...and I think it's safe to say, he got the baby stamp of approval :)

{love that little crooked smile!}

And in other exciting man is learning to sit up all by himself!!

{such a ham...ha}

I know I'm a broken record, but how is it that he's growing up so fast!! Over the weekend we went and visited our dear friends Melissa & Pete, and their sweet new peanut Bennet! I forget how teenie tiny they are when they're first born!

Bennet is one of Addison's MANY new girlfriends...ha. It seems that most all of my friends had sweet baby girls. I guess we have a lady's man on our hands...hehe.

And that concludes our morning to nappy time we shall go!

Happy Anniversary!

Russ' parents are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary this year, so we teamed up with Russ' brother and sister-in-law Scott and Ashlee, and had pictures taken of the 3 grandkids as a surprise. I've been dying to share these pictures that the lovely Katie Coiner took, but I had to wait until Bubbe and Bops saw them first. If you live in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, and are looking for a great photographer, you should definitely hit Katie up. She is incredibly sweet, and has a great eye!

Here are a couple I captured with my handy dandy iPhone...

Some of the cutest kids this world will ever see :)
Have a great weekend!!

After 2 1/2 weeks of crocheting, crocheting, and MORE crocheting...I finally finished the order of baby booties for the store in TX I told you about. Although I do thoroughly enjoy crocheting and knitting, it does feel good to have them finished! Oddly enough I found myself a little sad to see these little guys shipped off. But I know they'll find themselves on some cute baby toes soon! If you find yourself in the Wichita Falls, TX area be sure to go check them out at Storkland!

Now that we seem to be out of this insane heat wave here in Nashville, my thoughts have been drifting to fall. I know we still have a couple months to go, but I'm getting excited about crisp air, sweaters, and flannel! Yes, I said flannel, and specifically PLAID FLANNEL! I absolutely love it, and while perusing around some fabric stores, I've found some yummy flannel to make some more of those cute handkerchief bibs!

I mean adorable would that baby in your life look with a cute plaid flannel bib! Fashionable AND functional.

That's all I've got for today. Have a fantastic Friday!
