2nd, thanks to those of you who gave sleeping advice for Soph. I promptly dusted off my copy of “The Baby Whisperer” which I had forgotten I’d used to sleep train Sam. It was a heaven sent then so I’ve been putting it into full effect since Friday. It’s been rough at times but last night she slept 5 hours!!! WOOHOO!! (I really love the methods in this book, if you’re looking for something besides letting your baby ‘cry it out’ I think this is a great alternative, “Secrets of the Baby Whisperer: How to Calm, Connect, and Communicate with Your Baby“)
3rd My dear little Samster starts school tomorrow. (slow dramatic tear rolling) We signed her up awhile ago but I kept putting off her start date, I guess part of me wanted to keep her at home forever. She’s only going 2 mornings a week for a couple of hours but I think it’ll be great for everyone. Wish us luck, if she has a complete meltdown I might just break apart, toss her in the van & hibernate in our little home forever.
So enough of that, here’s what we made!These shirts were SOOO easy, they’re from Artful Parent & all you do is roll fabric paint on a doily & then press the doily onto the shirt/onesie, seriously, this takes all of 10 minutes including clean-up. (more details in her link, what a great new blog find for me btw, love her!)
Next was definitely Sam’s favorite, we made birdseed hearts for our yard. The idea is from Magic Onions, I think they’re so precious. If it’s stops sleeting than maybe we can hang them in the yard tomorrow.Also if you saw my tweet than you’ve already experienced the atrocity that is the squirrel bundt!
It’s so creepy in person, very jiggly.
I don’t know what I’ll do with it, the idea was to hang it through the loop for the squirrels but it’s way too heavy & far too wobbly. I feel like I should just set up a little table & serve it to the squirrels, “look my furry friends, I baked you a cake!”
Last we made one of those little ready made, foam kits from Michaels. I love these things & their usually on sale too. I think I’ll take a few of the extras & use them to make Valentine frames with the girls pictures. (my garland is also from Michael’s, you could totally make your own from glittered heart cut-outs but for $3 I was all about just buying the finished product)Need more? Here’s a few other Valentine’s crafts that I wish I had more time for…
