At the goat house lately...

Life is all about baby here.
In the yummy ear-nibbling, sweet milky breath way.
And the please-will-you-sleep-for-just-one-hour
and the what can be making your soul so sad/angry/please stop crying ways
(blessedly only for a few hours in the evening)

one month old & sporting gifts from friend Holly: hand-knit cap & Under the Nile organic layette long-sleevie. A friend who really "gets" me.

It's hard to be so small and so clueless.

But so loved, too. The girls are working him in. Also a little bit of Christmas prep. The girls have sweet projects going, many of their own design, and I'm doing at least half of what I'd planned :).

a goates girls collaboration that's progressingowl babies: I'm afraid they fall into the "what I feel like making/not necessarily what the recipient wants" gift category. But c'mon: they're cutie! (and bamboo-soft). Tiny and simplified version of this sewing stars pattern. Given with the book, of course. And there will be a nest!

So fun! Marian's hair is coming in so nicely. And I love the owls, and in my own opinion, anything handmade beats ANYTHING else on the list regardless of what I want. It comes with love.

what a sweet little guy he is.
Would love to run my fingers through Marian's lovely hair.
Love the owls- remind me of the owls from that kids' book.

Love the simple sweet owls. I keep talking myself out of that booklet but maybe in the new year...

I also love that Marian is still wearing that apron. I am impressed that it has lasted.

I'm loving the stare. Just the other day Sophia was wondering what Marian's hair looked like now, so it was good to see.

Holly Kennedy, a friend from the girls' school. I meant to do a post on the crafty baby shower that she and a couple of other friends gave me. Tie dyed onesies, baby!
