Where ya been?

Wow it has been a busy couple of weeks. And this old blog here is in need of a remodel. I will get to catching up this weekend. Tonight, I must unpack scrappy goodness all in the boxes delivered yesterday and today for upcoming Color Me Daisy kits!

Lots to share soon on my thoughts on CKC Mesa and the projects I am finishing up from the 7 classes I took.

I also am super excited about what we have in store for May at Color Me Daisy.

I'm Thinking....

I came across a sketch last week at Becky Fleck's Pagemaps Blog. I loved the sketch and I immediately thought of the die cut Lily Bee Frame from the April Color Me Daisy kit. The sketch was perfect for what I wanted to do and the whole thing came together so quickly. The sketch was part of a MME contest with the theme "What's on My Mind". So I used the title "I'm Thinking" to note a few things that are on my mind about Nicholas lately.

If I did this in a few weeks I might have had a few MME papers from CMD's May's kit to work with. Oops, was that just a hint! ;)

I'm thinking...

You are growing up so quickly...
You're learning new words everyday...
Your laugh is so infectious...
and your smile melts my heart.

He's growing up right before my eyes!

It is amazing how fast the time is going. Jackson will be 5 months old in a few days. This past month he started rolling all over and lifting his head up to look around. He also started eating cereal, he is stil quite the piggy wiggy. He also started teething in earnest. Why does it take so long for those things to come in. You can tell the poor little guy is in a lot of pain from it.

He really is a sweet little boy. He will just stop and look at you with the biggest grin. And when I am nursing him, he puts his little hand on me and looks up and smiles. It just melts my heart.

Here is our piggy wiggy eating cereal for the first time a few days after he turned 4 months old. He ate like a champ!


Project 365 - Week 14 3/30/09 - 4/5/09

I love our neighborhood. We went on a walk tonight and from the bridge over the lake we caught the sun setting. Sometimes I wish our house was on the lake, but the practical side of me knows it’s just as well we aren’t.

Well I have Nicholas smiling now; it’s just a “cheesy” smile. But I still think it is adorable. He is starting to eat off a plate rather than his tray and trying out a fork.

Nicholas loves his puzzles. He has several of them and he is really great at putting them together. He is learning his colors from them. He is saying so many new words every day; it is amazing to watch him.

Jackson is rolling all over and scooting too. He loves to be on the floor looking around and checking it all out. I think this little boy will not be happy if he is confined.

I finally captured a real smile. It seems like most of our pictures are at the kitchen table. I try to make it home during the week for dinner every night so we can have dinner as a family. Sadly the reality of being a working mom is the majority of the week nights are spent on eating, bathing and getting the boys to bed. After bedtime Mike and I take advantage for some hobby time.

Jackson has now moved from just rice cereal (which we do not think he is too fond of) onto vegetables, peas to be exact. Surprisingly he ate a whole container of peas on his first try, he even seemed to like them until the very end when he gave a heeby-jeeby shake and made a face with each bite.

I love my goofy little boy! Nicholas is so busy; he just plays all day long. Nana R came to visit this afternoon and brought the boys a cute cookie jar.

Happy Anniversary! Hope you had a great one! Love you guys!
