Many Milestone Weekend!

Lots of Milestones this month!!

First of all, on the 18th of every month, I put Elyse through a torturous photo shoot! This months inspiration came from various baby pictures I saw on Pinterest. We were going for a "look how cute the baby in pearls is!" hahah :) Some are real pearls and some are fake. 

This one I LOVE! Her "beary" best friend

And everyone loves the butt picture that she will be embarrassed about in the future :)

Last weekend, my parents came up for a few days to visit their grand daughter, and moi. Above is "harmony"(korean term for grandma) and Elyse eating a sweet potato fry. Elyse had another tooth break through this weekend. Her top left bunny tooth :)
We also went to the mall and got her ears done! She doesnt sit still, so the picture is blurry. 

She has figured out how to crawl and grab and sit up on her knees. Which means she can get into her toy drawer anytime she wants!!! 

Lastly, I dont have a picture of it, but she pulled herself up to stand for the first time. She's a little stingy about doing it still, but she knows how an can be provoked with food. 

ps. also, still NOT eating from a spoon. BUT she will eat from chopsticks!! Thats my girl!

Elyse's New Way of Eating

Elyse has hit a new milestone lately! She's crawling... which is awesome but then again, she's realizing that the new world around her is very dangerous and is banging into a lot of things. :( But thats not what I want to blog about.

She's taken a step backwards in her milestones as well. She recently decided that she HATES spoons and will not eat from one. So the only way I can get her to eat pureed foods is straight from the container. So much for making my own food!

my latest creations!

When I do actually find the time to get on the computer, I have been addicted to Pinterest and learning about all these new blogs!! 

One thing I try really hard NOT to do is say "I'm going to do this"... then never do it. I hope that for the most part that I do about 80% of the things I say I'm going to do. (one thing I thought I truely would do, then didn't was finish my prereqs for nursing school and still kick myself for not doing it.... maybe someday?)

So on pinterest there are lot of DIY things that I REALLY want to do! (as well as that fantastic list I created for myself in december). So below is a few pictures of my recent progress. 

There was a post on pinterest about a diy lace flower headband for babies! Heres the post picture:

Heres the one I made: (Micheals only had this one lace so I was a bit limited)

Woo hoo!! 

The next thing was found by my friend amanda, and its a "coming home from the hospital" shadow box! Heres the one on Pinterest:

And heres the one I made..with her premie clothes :)

Last but not least, I made a beanie for my baby! This was not on pinterest. I learned how to crochet on youtube, then found a youtube tutorial on how to make a beanie, and then also how to make a flower and ta-da!
The crown of the hat...

Finished product! The flower is flatter now though. It took me about a week to make, but mostly cause I was learning how to crochet while making it. The next hat will look MUCH better :)

One quick thing, these three things took me about a month to do. As I've mentioned before, there is a false sterotype that stay at home moms have TONS of free time on your hands. That is NOT true. I will say we have a little more freedom with our schedules(as the babies get older) to move things around and be available. BUT we're not just sitting there bored, doing nothing. Most of stuff I have been doing (the crocheting, projects, scrapbooking) has mostly been when cole is home from work. When I'm home, I take care of the baby. If I get free time(like now) I try to blog or shower or get something done for the greater good of the family.

But anyways!! I do think when Elyse goes to school, I'll have a little more free time :)

So what's my next project?? Another hat, and hopefully more scrapbooking. I am looking forward to being DONE scrapping booking my wedding!!

Things to make

So since I have been slacking on the blogging, I've decided I should try to do, shorter more frequent blogs rather than the longer ones that take forever. So heres to my first shorter blog post!!

So lately, I've been really motivated to make something. I've been a SAHM for 7 months(tomorrow) and what have I accomplished? Well besides keeping Elyse alive, I've scrapbooked a little and finished watching the whole season of Lost, and all of the available seasons of Grey Anatomy, Grimm, The Office, Once upon a time, the ringer, parenthood, up all night and modern family. (Thanks a lot hulu) Oh and I've finished one book... Clash of the Kings(it was a 969 page book though). oh and we started our p90x and happy to say, we're on week 3 and have definitely been sticking to it!

Needless to say, I don't feel all that productive, SO I've decided to search the internet for things to make.  The first thing I made from DIY website has been accomplished! I made a flower out of lace. I know.. sounds lame and really insignificant, BUT to me it means I am capable of making things and this is just the start! The flower is going on a headband for elyse.

The other thing on my list is crocheting... in general. Let's see how that goes...
