Rhythm of the Home

I just discovered this wonderful resource. I needed some inspiration for winter decorating, celebrating and ideas for childrens gifts and such, and I like the connection to nature and seasons and use of natural materials it includes.

This is their new winter issue, I have not looked at everything but I love it already.
Check it out!

In other news, teething is what is happening here. As you can see everything is a teething toy, including the homeopathic teething tablets that help so much with the pain and restlessness. Thank you Hyland's!

My little family

These days are spent just playing with the little guy, sometimes forgetting or to busy with him to get dinner made. I know that this time goes so quickly and that soon he will be crawling, then walking around the house and then our time will be spent chasing him around. I love these times and what we have.

4 months today!

Really? I cannot beleive it has only been 4 months and at the same time I cannot believe that my little baby is already a 4 month old.

He has changed so much. He is so big and his personality even bigger. Right now he loves jumping if you sit him on your lap with his feet on the floor, he will jump with a huge smile on his face until you tire of it and change his position. A johnny jump up is in our near future I believe. He also loves being on his belly as you can see here. As soon as you place him on the floor on his back he flips over and is now beginning to flip back though he likes to do that mostly on the bed. Something he hates is driving back from the food co-op, as he usually naps on the way there or even while I shop and is wide awake and bored for the drive home, so sad, I wish we lived closer.

I would like to try to get more things made up in my studio before I think I will have to give it up or at least part of it to this little guy at some point when he needs more space than a baby needs. We will see, right now he is happy to just be where ever I am watching me or looking at his toys. Sophie the giraffe is a favorite.

He's here! Edison!

Wow, What a month it has been. I am finally feeling like I can wrap my head around this hole baby/mama thing, and I love it. It has been a bit of a challenge, but then nobody told me it would be easy. He has grown so much I can't even believe the first picture was not that long ago.
I should probably go get dressed while he sleeps in his hammock. Sometimes I forget to take advantage of these moments for stuff like that.

Felt Food!

My first attempt at making felt food.

Sitting around waiting for this baby to arrive has driven me to make felt bacon! I don't even eat bacon, but the family who this is going to enjoys it so I thought it would be appropriate.

It was a lot of fun to figure out how to make them. It makes me excited for making all kinds of food for my child. I just need some good ideas!
