About Me

My photo
I try to be superwoman. I like iced cappuccinos, photography, design and being neat and tidy. My husband and I are homebodys - even though we've been together for 10 years, (married for three) our life is never boring. We have an almost two year old daughter who is the center of our world. Join us as we make our house a home and juggle parenthood for the first time.

Happy 11 months Sophie!

Yes, just one more month until you are officially a toddler. You will always be my baby and I'm so thankful for that. Let's see what you've been up to this month...

You continue to be walking and are able to go further each day. Your record is 8-10 steps. You seem to crawl and walk about evenly now. The coffee table is your home base to help you stand up with guidance. You have also learned to dance while standing. It is so cute to see you shake your booty!

Feeding time is more difficult now and want what's on our plates! We have to finish some baby food we already bought, but then it will be big girl food. So far you like mac & cheese and chicken.

You are still in size 3 diapers, and 12 month clothing fits you the best. You may go to size 4 diapers soon, probably not next month but in a couple...You are still eating 5 oz. every 3 hours and have a nap an hour after each bottle. You take 4 naps a day and still sleep through the night. We always try to keep you on schedule for naps, Sophie. You like your sleep and can be grouchy when you miss the pivotal morning or afternoon nap.

You like when the freezer is open so you can put your mouth on the cool hinges and play with the frozen food. You don't like when we close it. Same thing with the dishwasher and cabinets. You have also figured out how to take the cap off of pens and markers. Mommy found you with purple marker on your mouth one day! You like to nod your head 'yes' and 'no' and wave to everyone. You are not a shy baby and love attention and people and are so interested and inquisitive about the world around you. Grammie likes to say you're a little dickens when you are rambunctious. Mommy says you're silly!

Every day is better than the last, little one. You are sooooooooooooo smart I can't believe it sometimes. We can't (can) wait for the next stage: toddlerhood!


My 100th post!

For my 100th post I will give you all a sneak peek of the stairwell. We had to use scaffolding to get into the corners, and let me tell you, scaffolding + a ladder on top = freaked out Amy. My husband did most of it but I helped hang our new chandelier! I really love the way it looks.

Please excuse the horrible cell phone image - I took this in the morning when it was still dark out and did not line it up very well either.

Some may say it's too dark for that hallway or that little of a space, but I like how it goes so well with the fixture. We needed to give it more depth for that space and I can't wait to finish it and add my photo wall.

Recent etsy purchases

I recently bought this fun fabric frayed clip from etsy last week. It's a little big for her head, so we will have to wait to use it, but still uber cute.

I also bought this adorable knit hat from OopsIKnitItAgain's etsy shop. It is for my photography business. I have ordered from her once before and was very happy with the quality. She actually made a custom one for me without the pom on top. I love the colors in this hat, it photographs really well.

I bought a whole bunch of stuff for Sophie's 1st birthday party on etsy too, but most of it is going to stay secret until the party reveal.
