sorry for the lack of blogging lately. it's simple really...i just feel like i have nothing to blog about besides elle and my etsy shop. there is really not much going on...
elle has been hilarious lately. so very funny!
-i put her down for a "rest" on friday morning. she played quietly in her bed for an hour. i finished up some elle + ollie stuff and got ready to meet some friends for lunch. when i went to get her out of her bed and get her ready she was nekkid. head to toe. zero clothes. not even her pull-up. i didn't even make a deal of it, just got her out of her bed and got her dressed. i don't know how long she was without clothes, just thankful she didn't have a potty mess in her bed!
-aaron was giving her a bath the other night (which she has been HATING lately. agh.) and she was playing like she was a baby. laying down in the water and splashing and kicking. she told aaron "baby very funny!". it cracked us up that she used the word very in it's correct content!
-the day i lost my iphone at target. well stupidly left it in the cart... at some point i uttered the words "oh geez" and for a couple days after that elle kept saying "oh geez baby jesus". not really sure why she added the "baby jesus" but she did. and while i don't think saying "oh geez" is bad, it just made me really conscious of the words i speak in her presence, because the a couple days later i said "stupid car" and if i heard it once, i heard it a hundreds times spoken from the mouth of my sweet and lovely almost 2 year old. stupid is not a lovely word i want my sweet girl speaking.
-aaron was playing "mommy and daddy" with elle....which is it what she calls her critter family and critter townhouse. anyway, aaron asked her if the babies were sleepy and she responded "no, i don't think so...". again, she is so smart and is using big phrases the right way! it blows our minds every day!
-we have been frequenting hobby lobby and joann to get supplies that i'm constantly running out of...elastic, thread and buttons mainly. every day elle asks "momma go to hobby lobby today?" and whatever my response is she always asks if we will go to joann too! and she says "too".
-super into dressing herself too! can be frustrating but its not ALL THE TIME, just sometimes. so i just try to let her "express herself" without it getting on my nerves too much! she can reach her pants drawer and her top drawer and most the time she has an opinion about one or the other but not both and she very rarely wants to wear a dress. but if i make a big deal about it then she's ok with it! same goes with shoes and headbands.
i could go on and on...but i'll spare ya!
1-lunch with our good buddies, courtney and kane; 2-loving on nana; 3-being silly at the library; 4-found momma's makeup; 5-a rough morning where elle was very opinionated on what she wanted to wear. threw several fits until i let her wear "these pants" and "monster shirts" and "sparkles shoes". oh geez.; 6-sitting pretty with big cousin listening to a book being read!
3 new dresses i finished last week that i hope to get in the shop today. all three are amy butler fabric. i have a couple new combinations coming up this week! they are going to be super sweet too. but they are not amy butler but kaffe fasset.
yesterday we took some 2-year old pics of elle and she killed it...like she usually does! she wore the cutest dress ever! wish i could say that i made it (one day!) but i didn't. the most perfect knot dress is from SheShe Made online boutique. i'm sorry but i've never seen a cuter knot dress ever. take that matilda jane! ha ha!
i'm going to frame some of the pics we took for her party on this coming saturday!!! i cannot believe that my baby girl is 6 days away from being two!
hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend! ours has been low-key and relaxing. today i'm working on the last small details for elle's party and knocking out a few elle and ollie orders!
nice catching up! hopefully i get back into blogging more frequently soon!
