Pretty Mama Day
I woke up without the sunniest of outlooks on the week but I knew if I didn't put some effort into my day, it would only get worse. SO, today became another 'Pretty Mama Day'. The hair went up with a scarf and then the lip gloss and shades. Every 'Pretty Mama Day' needs to be documented so Sebastian got in his new wagon and we went for a walk around the neighborhood with our camera. We both felt better by noon.
I know its been a LONG time since the stamp give away but I appreciate your patience. The two winners are:
My name is Annie and my favorite smell is fresh laundry. (Who can resist the smell of a newborn baby, though?)
I love the smell of cinammon. So "home-y" and warm...like my parents' house!
So, send me your mailing address, ladies and I'll get them in the mail!
Working on the last bits of a huge job this week as well as a few new fun opportunities. One of which is THIS new challenge blog. Its all about reusing found bits and pieces and turning them into art. Its right up my alley so I was so glad Kara asked me to be a GD. Go check out the mini album she made from a vintage sewing pattern.
Watched 'Into The Wild' last night. I felt like it was an insight into human relationships and the courage it takes to do something so unknown and unpredictable. We also managed to fit in 'Beowolf', 'SuperBad' and another movie that I can't remember for the life of me! We were waiting to find 'Darjeeling Limited' at the redbox but were always a little too late.
Sebastian is starting to use two-word phrases. I never thought I'd be so excited over this but after a little worrying a few months ago that he wasn't using any spoken words at all, its a big deal. We were letting the water drain from his bath on Saturday and he just up and said, 'Bye, bubbles'. We've been adding 'Bye' to every other word he knows just to encourage his speech. It immediately changed my perception of him. Its like when you run into someone who speaks another language and then they say something you can understand. He's been feeling yucky for so long that now that his energy has returned, he seems older. We spent a lot of time outside.
Back to work! Even on 'Pretty Mama Day'.
