Remember her?

remember my new best friend? Well she's now my latest obsession passion! I LOVE doing appliques and embroidery! I love being creative and figuring out what I am going to make and picking out the coordinating thread and fabrics and then seeing it all come together as a finished product. These are a few of my latest....

And this...

this is my new sewing room/office/guest /catch-all room...but mostly its my sewing room. My inlaws had the desk in their basement and graciously let me use it so I have more room to spread out and work. Doesn't it look professional? I've now moved out of the closet and my sweet husband can have his closet back and doesn't have to share with Henry. Have I mentioned how much I love him? He's so supportive and just my biggest fan and cheerleader whenever I get excited about something. Not only has he given up more of his space but he's been dragged (drug?) from here to just about every fabric and craft store in Birmingham without complaining without too much complaining and has even done emergency "I'm out of stabilizer" runs while on his lunch break so that I'd have it that evening.

Im starting to take on a few applique/monogramming jobs here and there which are fun and frightening all at the same time. It's one thing to mess up on a t-shirt I am making for Henry and a whole 'nother to fear I might mess up something of someone else's. So far I've been pleased with what I've done. I told Lee if I make enough money I am going to hire a cleaning lady :) He seems to think that's a great idea since our present one is too busy crafting and raising a baby to do much cleaning around here ;0)
Here are a few things I've done for others...

NiNe MoNtHs!!

** I forgot to publish this saved post earlier this month then I was going to wait until I had pictures and doctor stats and forgot :)

My little lucky charm is nine months already! Its hard to believe I carried him for as long as he has been here! Him being here has been much more fun although I loved being pregnant. He is such a joy to have around and he makes my heart smile! He is getting to be SO much fun and his little personality is developing everyday. At nine months he loves taking baths, stroller rides, loving on our dog Sophie, playing with tupperware, snuggling when he wakes up, quiet time with his "Lamby", books, his daddy, and LOVES blowing kisses! He is SO close to walking its so funny to watch him. He now can stand up without pulling up and will just stand all on his own and when we try to get him to walk he will take a step and clap because he's used to up clapping and he gets all excited and looses his balance and falls-silly boy! He is now eating some table foods and is like a little bird when we are eating something, he'll open his mouth and grunt until we give him a taste. He ate almost an entire plate of guacamole when we ate Mexican the other night. He still has just two little "mouse teeth" as we call them on the bottom. We're trying the sippy cup more and more but he still loves a bottle. I took him to the doctor for his 9 month check up and he is 20.8lbs (40th percentile) and 30 inches tall (97th percentile!) my little string bean ;0) Dr. S said he looked great and was impressed with his ability to blow kisses, stand, and do some baby sign language. Henry was a champ and did all of his "tricks" for him. We were both happy to hear there were no shots for this visit. The bad news is that he had ANOTHER double ear infection-I didn't even know! this was his 5th infection since June so he has referred us to an ENT for a tubes consult next month.

I dont have his 9month pictures loaded yet but here are a few from the past month..Henry and Summer at their 1st sleepover (both busting out of their pjs)

SOOOO big!
