Life is Good!

I started back to work this week, 4 hours a day. The hardest part has been getting out the door in the morning. I mean I just have this one additional little person but for some reason that makes 4 extra bags to carry! I'm sure I'll get it all streamlined sooner or later. Juliet has been doing very well with grandma watching her; being happy & taking a bottle. It's hard to leave her, but it is so lovely to get an excited smile from her when I come to pick her up. Unfortunately it seems my three month maternity vacation(mostly spent in my house away from people) has weakened my immune system. Just as soon as I spent a day or two in public last week I come down with a nasty cold. Bah! No fun...but at least I have managed not to share it with Juliet or Dan. I have been doing alot of sewing. Mostly on custom cloth diapers that I am going to try selling. Because yeah, cloth diapers are awesome!
That's a little update. And now for my favorite part...PICTURES!

Once upon a time I was taking pictures of me & the wee babe when suddenly...

spit up happened! Ahhh!!! And now it is is caught on camera. Thats right... caught mid-spit up and I even unknowingly made a face to go with it. Although check out Juliet's face...oh dear :)

Our Anniversary...4 years together

This cracked me up. Dan was trying so hard to keep her all bundled up & out of the wind but he didn't even notice her little feet sticking out the bottom.

Visiting cousin Dax

Cute little boy & such a ham


Dax wears a purse...gonne have to watch that boy.

Dax gives Juliet some loves...and pinches her cheek...gently of course :)

Juliet's not sure what to think about this.

Is that not cute or what? In other news: Treeva is pregnant & expecting their 2nd in November.

Mommy customized Juliet's burp cloth. Mommy is silly :)

Not every day can be a good day

Juliet enjoying watching the fishies & holding her head up so good during tummy time. This was a good day.

Juliet is such a sweetie pie. I just love her happy little coos. But the last couple days I'm not sure what is wrong. She has been crankier & crying more, and not really enjoying the things she used to. Like car rides, she used to love then & usually fell asleep. But now she just cries. At least she still likes her baths & sleeps all night for me. Must count my blessings. I will be going back to work this week. Bummer, I was so enjoying my maternity vacation & playing with Juliet 24/7. At least it is just part time.

I just finished up my last scrimshaw projects, just in time for the April knife show. I am trying to get more scrimshaw projects and so I am currently working on setting up a website showcasing my work.

This is front & back. A lion roaring and a lioness carrying her cub.

This one is poison ivy, stylized.

Blessing Juliet

Today we blessed Juliet at church. Mommy made her a pretty dress to wear, and Daddy gave her a lovely blessing. We are so happy to have our little Juliet in our lives, she is absolutely wonderful.
