Crib info

I've had a couple of you ask me where I got my patterns for the stuff I made for the crib--here are the links!!
The crib skirt (I did alter this pattern a little. I thought it was silly to put all of that cute fabric underneath the mattress--so the whole middle section of mine is just out of cheap muslin)
The bumper (I actually didn't use this pattern because it didn't work with the insert I had--but it was the one I was going to use...)
And the blog that had the tutorial for the crib rail protectors just took it off so she could sell it...bummer. But if any of you are ever going to make one, let me know, and I will send you the measurements that I used to make mine. I've made 3, so I could remember and tell you how to do the whole thing!! It is pretty easy to make, and I think it looks cute on the crib!

Quinn's sweater

I'm sure there could be worse things that Quinn wanted to wear all the time. If she sees this sweater she wants it ON!!
So here she is in her pajamas and a sweater...

And have I mentioned that this is my life now?? Being dragged around by my finger?! EVERYWHERE she goes....she has to have 'mommy too.'

This seems to be her new perch lately...sitting in her rocking chair to look at books. Super cute, except for that I have to keep handing them to her. When she's standing somewhere else to look at books she can get them herself.

And of course....a nose scrunch picture :)

baby boy's crib

The crib is all done!! Kind of funny actually, since he probably won't be in it for another 6 months...but at least no one can tell me I'm not prepared :) I made almost everything you see--the bumper, the crib rail protectors, and the crib skirt. (not the crib or the mattress, but they are cute too)

And like everything else that's for the baby...Quinn thinks this is HER bed.

30 weeks!!

Here is my belly. Sometimes it's hard to believe I'm 30 weeks already. As you can see, Dave and I were in a silly mood last night when we took these...

I think I look normal in these first two, but the last one I look huge!!! I've gained 22 pounds, so I think I'm going to overshoot my 27 pound goal....oops.

Here's my mug shot

little Q

quinn not wanting me to take pictures...again. But my mom informed me this morning that I hadn't done a post since FRIDAY. :)

I don't know why the red eye isn't working when I upload pictures to blogger lately. anyone know??

I was tagged like two weeks ago and am just now getting around to it---but see Chelsey--I told you I would do it :)

I've been photo tagged. I am supposed to take pictures of these few things just as they are, no cleaning, altering, or making adjustments to... so here goes...I might have cheated a LITTLE. I think I left out two rooms because they were just too messy for me to document.

My fridge.

Sorry, just one of my three--this one was the cleanest :)

My 'favorite' was my favorite that day because it didn't have toys or books all over it.

My kitchen sink...very exciting

My laundry room

What my children are doing right now:
Quinn with NO pants, of course, playing with her 'my bake,' and not wanting me to take her picture.

playing in the curtains

'My bake.'

I think she is finally getting sick of the camera. I get this pose a LOT lately.

But I caught her anyway...

She has been playing with her microwave (she calls it her 'my bake.') a LOT lately. She individually cooked all this food and handed it to me...

I love this look....are you done taking pictures yet??

quinn in a hat

Quinn losing her pants....but at least she's got them on! And look how organized her books are. (she can do that herself---organize them according to size)

Friday, January 16, 2009


Here's some pictures from today. I had put all her hair in a pony tail and was trying to get a picture....but this is all I could get before it came out.

but then I got this good one---she is so cute and getting so big--I can't hardly stand it!!

"no, no, no"

Quinn wasn't in the mood to have her picture taken this morning...

action shot of her saying 'no.'

getting distracted so I could snap a picture of her being a monkey

she caught me...

Quinn hamming it up

I told Quinn to show me her teeth when she said 'cheese' for the picture...and she did!

Then I told her to show me her tongue...and she did :)

Quinn and mommy

And what would this post be without what I made for the baby??? This is a rag quilt I made for the little guy. My mother-in-law made one for Quinn and it was our FAVORITE nighttime nursing blanket...this one isn't big enough for that, but I'm sure we'll use it anyway!

wow....a big posting day

My growing belly.

Quinn and I eating 'dinner' at her table.

She was doing awesome at pretending. She would tell me her chicken was too hot, then blow on it.

A 'box' I made for the baby boy. Quinn obviously thought it was something new to stand in. Don't mind her dirty shirt and no pants....

This was a pattern from the Winsome Baby book--but it was the most ridiculous pattern EVER...I basically had to just make it up myself when it came to putting it together.

Quinn loving her new Koala bear that her Uncle Clint got her in Australia...thanks Clint!!
