egg inspiration

B is going through this really phenomenal stage where he excitedly “oooh!”s at everything we do or hold. I brought some lunch plates over to the table, and he greeted me with a loud “oooooh!” Like I had arrived with the most magnificent unicorn, instead of plates of cut up veggies. I hope he does this forever. Anyway, he’s got great enthusiasm, and I’m looking forward to dying eggs with him. Until then, these pretty eggs I’m sure even the Easter bunny would be happy to find. From here and here.

baby’s first christmas

You will all be pleased to know that I finished his stocking with a day to spare! Unfortunately, baby’s first Christmas Eve coincided with baby’s first cold. But I know we will always remember taking turns rocking him back to sleep that night, and being the first ones up to see the Christmas sun and drink hot chocolate. Little guy was such a good sport about all the present opening and photos, and he made the holiday so special, runny nose and all.

I didn’t finish his first ornament in time to get it on the tree, but I did finish it in December, so I’m counting it. I embroidered his name and the year on the back, and it may even be the beginning of a little tradition of ornament making each year…
