In a family of 6, everyone has to do their part.

We are teaching Biggest Brother to give Littlest Brother a bath….

Unrelated, but I finally got some cute ones of Baby Sister with her eyes open. She was happy, wide eyed and I put on several hair accessories:)I know the first two are basically the same, but I just couldn’t decide which I liked better…809beyes-01809beyes-03

  • Lisa - Ok, you must spill the beans on where you got that crochet hat. I’m drooling over it!

  • Lacy - Thanks for sharing these links! Not like I need *even more* crafty projects to try–I so desperately need to finish all the works-in-progress right now. But it is always fun to look and gather ideas.

    I just love your blog so much! It is always inspiring and encouraging. :) One of my faves.

    Thanks for sharing your life!

  • rachel denbow - Eeeek! Thanks for the shout out!

    And…send me your mailing address. Why didn’t I think of that before!

  • evie s. - Online craft class? What a great idea!

  • Cath - I love Oneprettything, I go there every day xD I also love and, they’re also good inspirations for crafty people!

Remember this post – I was mourning the end of a “hole-y jean era” and baffled by a really girly tutu. Well, I was guessing she was about big enough for the tutu, so before we headed over to my grandpa’s house we tested it out. SPEECHLESS again. I wish I had a picture of my grandpa’s face when we rounded the corner with her dressed in this. It was priceless. My grandma would have loved to see her in it too. I just kept laughing – this is so out of my element!


I think our faces say it all….



Her cheeks grow in awesomeness every day…the jeans are hanging like artwork in Littlest Brother’s room.


After we got the tutu on her we wanted to see the boy’s reactions:

Biggest Brother: smiled and said she looked “very pretty”


Littlest Brother: kept bringing it back to us after we took it off her, he wanted it back on her

Thanks Angie for the gift and Holly for making it:)

  • Sarah - This post just made me smile. I love it!

  • amanda torres - And now it all begins…

  • Heather Stauffer - YOU DID IT :) I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!

  • rachel - So adorable…and I love the look on your faces! My daughter has a tutu just like that (She has had it since she was 1 and it still fits her; she is 3 now) but my son who is 18 months loves to wear it, I think he likes us to laugh at him….enjoy your sweet little girl!! Oh and about the holy jeans, I had my girl first, so I wasn’t used to having holes in her clothes. Once my son started walking at 9 months I noticed holes in his jeans and since I had never had a boy I kept asking all of my friends, is this normal….now I know the answer!! I love reading your blog!! Thank you!
