Bowls Full of Mush and Rings of Tulle

Vivian is getting so big. I still feel like my 3 day induction was yesterday as it is vividly burned into my brain. So it makes it even harder for me to believe she is starting to eat food. I can't use the phrase "starting solids" with a straight face, because that couldn't be further from the truth. It's more like Vivian is starting to eat bowls of mush and she LOVES IT!

Ever since Halloween Ava grabs her yellow tutu at the mere mention of a bee! And with kid cartoons the subject comes up with alarming frequency. To broaden her tutu usage I made Ava a pink ballet tutu, she wants nothing to do with it.

So to hell with her, I made one for Vivian. And since she can't talk and doesn't know about a possible bee tutu, she is a "willing" participant anytime a pink ballet tutu arises.

Flight Risk

Surprise to me, Ava can now climb out of her crib. I knew this day would come but I wasn't willing to accept it. Climb out of your crib day was combined with skip a nap day, which will lead to rearrange bedrooms day/week. The only constellation prize I would accept is the celebration of I use the potty all the time day, for Ava, not me. I've been fully potty trained since college.

Just shoot me!

A New Outfit for Vivian and Happy 5 Month Birthday

Here is a little romper I made for Vivian. It's from the Ottobre Design's 3/2008 issue. It was supposed to have a little puff in the sleeve, but I think this super stretchy material did me in on creating that effect. This was my first time using my serger for adding the binding, which was a real blast. Needless to say, I need a little more practice with the serger, thankfully, Vivian is easy on me.

It's hard to believe that Vivian is 5 months already. Pretty soon she will be sitting on her own and eating food. She seems to be growing twice as fast as Ava did, perhaps its my superb mothering skills this time around.
