Aside from moving and packing, I have been filling a few orders. I made 15 custom black gate-fold cards with a centered middle pocket for a local middle school cheerleading squad. Each one included a vellum "end of year" newsletter over a black and white photo and each girl's name written in gold. They turned out really fun and I hope they will see them and think of the fun times they had this school year.
I also recently shipped a finished tile to a fellow blogger who has a new baby girl on the way! Her bedding was the "Spring Bouquet" line from Pottery Barn- super girly and sweet!
I've been spending as much time as possible with my little fella', Harbor. As of today, he is two weeks paci' free. He is so incredibly laid back that I haven't had a rough night with him yet. He usually "talks" to himself for a few minutes before falling asleep- I feel very blessed that it was not a huge fight to break him.
My parents graciously kept little Harbor for us on Valentine's Day night so we could spend a few hours alone together. We did a little shopping at Big Lots (exciting, I know!!) and then saw Sherlock Holmes. It was nice to reconnect and get some time to really talk and listen to what is going on in each other's lives.
Harbor is doing really well. A few of you know that he had a little surgical procedure on the 10th of this month- they discovered he was a bit tongue tied and we made the decision to have it clipped. He is very quiet by nature and not much of a talker at all. They think he may start to babble a bit more now that his tongue has some more range of movement. He is proudly sticking it out every chance he gets, which is a new trick. : ) As a parent, you always want to do all you can to ensure your child's success as they grow older. Being a parent is not always easy, but it is always a reward and blessing.
We are just plugging along here. I am knee deep in parent teacher conferences this week and am looking forward to Spring Break. David is as busy as ever and we are so thankful to have good jobs in this unstable economy. I think we all know or know "of" people who have lost their jobs or foreclosed on their homes. We should all hit our knees in a spirit of Thanksgiving to have a roof over our head, food in our pantries, and families who love us. Life is about the simple things. I hope you have taken the time to count your blessings! The news on television can be so depressing sometimes. I prefer to rock my baby and read "Goodnight Gorilla." : ) Have a great weekend!
