18 Months

I cannot believe he is 1.5 years old already! He doesn't seem so much like a baby anymore and is such a little toddler, temper tantrums and all! I know I have probably said so many times that he isn't like a baby anymore, but he has been more and more like a toddler every day! Lately things are either cold, cute or cool. Things that he is not supposed to do he says, "it's fun". For things he doesn't want he just repeats, "no, no, no" and then comes the hitting. He has gotten better about the hitting though. That is, until Brandon gets home. At least the doctor (visited 6-22) is impressed. :)

Labyrinth Lap-Quilt Top

I have finished the labyrinth quilt top for a lap sized quilt and I thought the border was too dark as I was putting it on but now that it is pieced, I really like it! Cannot wait to get it sandwiched and quilted! I just don't have enough backing for it. :( It only took me about a week to put together. I am so proud of myself! The fastest I have put together a top! It is the first pattern/layout/ truly planned quilt I have done. I love the way that it looks!

His Room...

It was the other day, yesterday, Monday... I felt good to watch him, but sad at the same time.

I have no pictures. I didn't take any.

Dylan's Busy Book

I am so excited about how this turned out, and I even finished it by her birthday party! If you didn't see my fiasco of attempting to cut fabric with the cricut (testing it so I could make a quiet book), you can read those posts here for part 1, and here for part 2.It works, though I would make some changes. It looks so cute. I wish that I knew how well Dylan likes it. At least I know she uses it. My mom said she has difficulty pronouncing busy and it comes out as Disney. So she says Dylan's Disney book. Cute. If she asks for it, that must mean that she likes it right? Well, I also added two coloring book, 12 colored pencils, and a pack of 8 Ariel the little mermaid crayons that she colored with at our house. Gotta love stuff from the dollar bins at the stores! :) So I wrote down the measurements of the fabrics so I could share. :)

Itsy Bitsy Spider...Bite

Poor Nikolai. I have been on this cleaning kick since the summer has started. I need to get all caught up on the slacker I have been when it comes to cleaning and chores. And I have gotten a lot done; all caught up on laundry, getting there with the dishes, cleaned out the refrigerator, swept, mopped and sealed the floors (still dislike saltillo tile), and I have cleaned the litter box.
