Adding a Little Cozy...

My latest project.


All it took was two bolts of tulle, a couple strings of white lights, and a lot of patience to wrestle with the tangle of lights of tulle.

Next steps: choose a new bedspread and paint the walls.

Double Valentine...

This year I get two Valentines. How lucky is that?

This little one was looking particularly cute the other day...


Our little bug is crawling. This has not been the big change I was preparing myself for. Through this new phase I have learnt that she is easy going and content. She almost never gets into anything and the two "don't touch spots" she avoids. Rather she sits and talks to her toys much the same as she ever did. Discovering her real personality (vs the ones we made up for her while she lay staring at the ceiling) is so wonderful. It's amazing to really get to know this little person!

Being a mother just got even better. Again.

Happy Valentines Day.

A Big First...

Olivia got to meet some very special people last week during her first visit to Kansas.


 This was her first time meeting Grandpa Blythe.


Her first time meeting her Great Grandma Blythe too.



Olivia had a wonderful time in Kansas. Who wouldn't love all the attention of aunts and uncles and grandparents?



In Kansas she discovered a great fascination/obsession for cats which gave her the motivation for her very first crawling steps.


Overall she gave the trip two thumbs up - except for part where we spent 6 hours of traveling past her bedtime on the way back home. Maybe we'll avoid that in the future.
