It just followed me home --

-- can I keep it?
On Saturday, DH told me to get OUT of the house for a while, and he took care of Maura. Well, of course my first stop was at the LNS...and one of Nora Corbett's fairy alphabet letters just jumped into my hands!! I already have a birth sampler picked out, but what little girl wouldn't love a fairy with her initial in her room? Especially when she gets older and might not want her birth sampler on display.
After the LNS, I stopped at Barnes & Noble and read a bunch of books but bought nothing....then I went to Wal-Mart (oh-so-glamourous, I know!) and bought some more baby toys - the one thing we didn't really buy before her arrival. I know she is too little to play with them yet, but she spends so much time just looking around -- and so much of our house is boringly beige!!! So I decided we needed toys, if only for the bright colors. LOL We now have a neat little mirror, a tummy mat, and some rattles and doo-dads. Enough for now!

Motherhood is going pretty well so far. I'm tired, but that's to be expected, and Maura seems to be growing and thriving. I'm dreading next month, when I have to leave her at the daycare center. Partly because she's my baby, and partly because the sleeping/night-time feeding/getting ready for the day routine could be hellish on all three of us. *sigh* Ah well. Thankfully, she knows nothing of all this. If only her dad and I could rest so peacefully.....

Maura is gorgeous, you should be so proud.
Love the fairy too. :-)

Those letter fairies are going to be my go to birth sampler for little girls from now on.

And M works up beautifully, I sitched her for myself last year.

Maura will adore her fairy. I love the photo of your DH and Maura, it is beautiful.

How beautiful she is asleep on her Dad. She cetainly deserves her own fairy.

Decision Made

After monkeying with the shells and beads some more, I decided to take them all off... ...and I think I like it best this way.  I did add...
