I made something!

My husband and I went away for the weekend just gone to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. We took the Scmevebot (aka our baby Eve) with us, as she still gets all her drinks from me. The older two had an absolute blast with my mum and dad including going to a music festival on Saturday night. They especially enjoyed rocking out to the band, Chasing Light which both my brothers are in (the singer and the bass guitarist). They have pretty cool uncles really. I claim to be cool by association.

Anyways, on the weekend I made this little hat using this tutorial from A Beautiful Mess. Thanks Elsie! It ended up a little bit on the small side, and so doesn't stay on very well, but it is still a cute statement! I have another one on the hook already for a little friend.

Feels so good to finish a project- and actually blog it!

hmmm, so cute!

9 months

Here she is in all her 9 monthly splendor. I love this little button. She is a chirpy sweetie who loves being out and about. She is not too keen on meat or vegetables, but does like fruit and yoghurt quite a lot. She still loves her mummy milk, but is a bit inconsistent, so this mummy has been battling the mastitis monster for most of the last few weeks. All has been well the last couple of days, so I hope worst is behind us on that one. She is still crawling like crazy, pulling to stand, semi cruising, and does that little bouncing baby dance at the slightest hint of music.

Unfortunately she has become a bit anti-sleep. She isn't necessarily unhappy to get into bed, but she just will not go to sleep without a fight (often a long one). This is particularly challenging in the middle of the night as I'm sure all the sleep loving parents out there can relate to! Lucky for us, she seems to cope reasonably well with sleep depravation. Unlucky for us, we do not. Especially me. I keep reminding myself that soon she will be grown up like the other two and I will miss baby Eve, as I miss baby Caleb and baby Jemima. (Not to say I don't adore my children at all ages, surely that goes without saying.)

P'raps I should rename my blog "Eve's montly pics"! That's the majority of the action happening here lately. I have crafted a few things that I haven't posted, but craft and blogging in general has been taking a bit of a back seat to some other time consuming matters, alas! Hope to be back before the end of the month.

Thanks for stopping by!

8 months

So Eve is now 9 months, and I missed the quilt photo for 8 months. Oh well. These are some pictures that my talented sister snapped on Mothers Day a few weeks ago when baby was 8 months.

I love her big shiny eyes.
