Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my birthday....I am 36. WOW. I am feeling old. But at the same time it is fantastic and great. This is the best birthday ever. It is the first time I am a mommy and I have the best husband. What more can a girl ask for?

The last couple of days, I have been working on a reversible dress for Abigail. I am having quite a few problems with creating it and am being creative in finishing it. Once I figure it out 100% I am going to do a tutorial as it seems all the ones I have read seem to leave out a step.

However, here is my baby girl in her new outfit. It just fits her. Plus she is already reading Mothering Magazine. She is starting early.

Life as we know it...

Yeah...we are back from being sick. 3 weeks is definitely long enough. I think we had a little of everything....cold, pink eye, allergies/sinus, and then bronchitis. I cannot believe how exhausting being sick and having to take care of a baby at the same time. After the first few days Abby was feeling she didn't understand why all mommy and then daddy wanted to do was sleep.
Belowis a predinner photo. Abby wanted to pose with me before I left. I normally don't dress up too much so I dolled myself up.

Nothing much happened these last few weeks. However, now that we are feeling is getting better. I went on a dinner date tonight with my friend T. Sheldon watched Abby but I guess it wasn't a good thing...she cried for 2 hours straight. I guess she is going through the mommy is everything stage. (I have mixed feelings about that...I like being the most important person in her life...but I also like having a few minutes to myself.) Tomorrow, I am going to take a PhotoShop lesson.

Above is a photo of Abby making friends or enemies depending on how you look at it with Oreo. Oreo actually hissed at Abby for the first time. That is probably because Abby has learned how to pull hair...I have a few sore spots on my head from her pulling.

Sheldon has been able to do a little metal detecting. Yesterday, the 3 of us went to the park. Abby and I went walking while Sheldon checked out the ballfields. He found a few quarters, a couple of dimes and some pennies. This is the normal finding load...but every now and then he finds jewelry.

Above is a picture of Abby in the cute dinosaur outfit that Grandma Susan made for her. It is a little big but not too much. I love it. Velcro everything. I actually just finished a rock n roll skull pink/black blanket for Abby. Now I am working on a rubber ducky quilt and I have patterns to make bibs and pinafore. So that is my next projects.

This weekend is my birthday and Mother's Day. We have lots planned. Hopefully it will be fun.
