Sewing 101

Dave gave me a sewing machine for Christmas. Lindsey and I had a sewing party one night and she taught me how to cover my old boring pillows. This pillow was my first project. Thanks Linds!

Cute Toes

Bailey and I had a girls day and painted our toes. Look how cute her little tootsies are... she couldn't stop looking at them. I love having a girl.


Each year Santa comes to my parent's house on Christmas Eve. Most kids are terrified of Santa but not Bailey. She couldn't get enough of him and she just had to have his glasses.

and touch his beard...

and she had a list a mile long. (pretty impressive for a 9 month old.)

Bailey had a pretty good first Christmas.

We had a fun Halloween this year. We painted and carved pumpkins, had a halloween party at Sue's, did a little trick or treating to Grandma and Grandpa's house and of course watched Hocus Pocus.

Our cute little ladybug.

Grandma Morgan

My cute Grandma passed away on October 22, 2011. I will miss her dearly. My sister Liz is always better with words. To know what a special and amazing lady she was please read here. I echo each word written.

This picture will always be special to me. Grandma and Bailey just stared at each other while Bailey stroked Grandma's face... it was heartening and heart wrenching at the same time to see the interaction between this wonderful woman, who was about to end her mortal life, and this little baby who is just starting hers.

I love you Grandma... Til we meet again.

6 Months

Bailey turned 6 months on the 18th. It's hard believe my little munchkin is already 6 months old! We had her check up yesterday and she is super, super little. Here are her stats:

Head: 2 percentile (15.1 in)
Height: 23 percentile (25 in)
Weight: 1 percentile (11.9 lbs)

We need to go back in December to make sure that she is still growing but I don't know what else to do to make my baby gain weight! Does anyone know of any tricks? I'm getting a little concerned. She loves to eat but she's also super active. Her legs are constantly moving so she's probably burning as many calories as she's taking in... lucky.

Anyway, my sister just gave me some pictures of Bailey that were taken at our family reunion in July. Thanks Liz and thanks Lindsey for taking them! Maybe one day I will not be so lazy and download my pictures from my camera. Enjoy!

Tea Party

A couple of weeks ago my mom, sisters and some friends and I all got together to see The Help. All but two of the nine us had read it and loved it so we of course we had to see the movie. I think it is safe to say that we all loved it!

But before the movie we had a ladies luncheon / tea party. My mom let us use her china and the table decorations are courtesy of Lindsey. (Can I quickly just say that I love my sisters! They come up some fun ideas!)

Our menu consisted of:

lemon water, mini sandwiches, chicken salad sandwiches, lemon squares, butter cookies and of course deviled eggs.

And no, in case you were wondering, there was no chocolate pie. :)
