A new addition to the family. I'm thinking his name should be Ernie, because it sounds like the word Ear and his ears are my favorite part of him. I made him from a vintage pattern I found at a thrift store. He's a mix of old and new fabric. I added the tie. I think it makes him look dapper and distinguished. He still needs a pair of shorts. They're on my cutting table right now, along with a matching pair for Ray.


one step

First steps today thanks to this fantastic new gift from Ray's auntie Jennifer.



The power went out the other night and besides giving us all the perfect excuse to go to bed early, I was able to catch a couple candle-lit shots of the little man.

luscious chaos

Great story up at story people today:

"I'm beginning to think peace is something we made up to keep us from being satisfied with all this luscious chaos"

Sometimes I feel like I love you so much that I just want to fold you up and carry you around in my pocket.

helping hand

Sometimes I just wish someone would tell me "hey, I think you are doing the right thing." It doesn't matter what the thing is, I think a little reassurance goes a long way.
