sew a little

I had a lot of fun making Heidi a few dresses this week.  I have a few patterns that I love on etsy but I wanted them to be free, so I opted to figure it out as I went a long.  They were loosely based on dresses I saw on Pinterest.  I learned from my mistakes on dress #1; hemming is the last thing you do.  You wouldn't want to follow my tutorial, if I made one this time around.  Ha!  But, still darling on her!  Now to make a diaper cover for the blue dress...

what MN calls spring

Yesterday, the first day of spring, started out at 7 degrees for us, with a wind chill of -10 or something crazy like that.  We powered through it, just like we would have had it been a warm, fuzzy 40 degrees.  My sweet friend from church watches Heidi once a week for a few hours so I can get some errands done.  Seven errands yesterday, people.  Seven.  And Starbucks.  It's amazing how much I can get done by myself in that glorious two hours.  

Side note: I would much rather be on a coffee date during that time.  Takers?

Heidi is super into her baby doll right now.  Hugging, patting, kissing, smothering, making her baby sit in her bumbo... which is more like.... SIT BABY. YOUR LEGS AREN'T RIGHT. LET ME HELP YOU. Bang, bang, bang.  She means well.  I think she's catching on to what "gentle" means.  We say it a lot in this house.  H would do well with some boys in the house someday, hehe.

sweet, silly cousins

Okay, so these photos totally crack me up.  Getting Heidi and Lydia to stay posed and smile was not an easy task, as you can see.  They were having quite the conversation about how fast they were getting their snacks from Ginger and how their mama's were taking way too many photos. Life is hard when you are a one year old.  The older they get, the more fun they have together. H is one lucky chica to
live near Lydia.

one year photo shoot

Emily and I took the girls to a natural light studio and did a little photo shoot with them, in mid-Feb. H was allll over the place  moving around the little chairs and looking for things to get into, so it was almost impossible to catch her sitting still with a smile.  We still had a great time and I got some fun shots out of it!

life lately, according to my iphone

first birthday party

Turning one is hard.  All of those people staring at me as my parents try to make me like my birthday cake(which is so gross, eww! and don't get me started on that blue frosting!).  And the tutu and wretched headband.  I really wanted to make a mess on it so my mama would take it off and give me something more normal to wear.  

My emotions... there are so many.  I have a hard time smiling for all of those cameras, so I often got sad.  On the bright side, I got to see my cousins, so that makes it all worth it.  They know how to get every one of my toys out faster than me.  Since then I've been working on making a new record.  I want to be just like them!  Maybe someday I'll be able to load the nerf gun all on my own... oh boy!

Thanks to Emily for taking photos of us, since my mama was so busy!
