i had so much fun making these little toy bags. i made two and i think they will look so cute hanging on pegs in luc's room. if we ever get his room back. i love to see him drag them around the house. he's got quite the collection of animals so far. he's learning their names and their sounds.
next, i ordered this pattern from amy butler. i am in love with the nappy bag i made from her pattern and i'm so excited to finish this one. i've got the lovely fabric pieces cut out and will start sewing tomorrow, i think. (i spy with my little eye...someones toes!)
lucas and i ventured to salt lake with gina today to sort out her dress fiasco. such a sweet girl, that gina. i would so be pulling my hair out by now. she just said,"you know...this time next week, i'll be married and that's all that really matters" i miss that anticipation. the week before the wedding. sorting out the final details. the curiosity of what life will be like as his wife and getting to know him in a whole new way. the very beginning of such a fun wild adventure. she looked so pretty in her dress. she'll be such a lovely bride. jessie flies in this week and i was thinking that's it's been like 5 years since we've all been in the same room together. almost exactly 8 years since jess and lace and i took a trip in the honda our hands waving out the sunroof all the way to provo. we celebrated my birthday together and bought our silver rings knowing that things were going to change for us. and change they have.
lucas and i have been on a little adventure of our own. i'm feeling a bit guilty for wanting to wean him when it is very obvious that he is not ready. he won't eat "big boy" food - and i'm sure that it is just in protest. our nights have been so nutty. it's almost like he is nursing more now during the night than he was before?? i tried introducing him to a milk bottle. he thinks it's hilarious. what a fun game!
yeah, try giving him that same funny bottle in the middle of the night. a really fun game. and poor andrey has to go to work at 6 in the morning after our nightly chaos. i feel even worse when i finally give in to my wailing baby and nurse him back to sleep cause he's so sweet and cuddles right back up to me. advice anyone??
i hope you all are happy and well. send me some love...i'll be checkin' my mailbox!
