Being a Mom { 7 }

It has been a while! SO here are a ton of pictures. : )

Claire is growing up so fast! Everyday she gets better at sitting up and she keeps thinking that she can stand but she really can’t. She talks a ton and when she does she shouts, she has been doing this thing where she grabs my shoulder with both hands, puts her mouth on it and screams. Why she does this, I have no idea! lol

Everyday it becomes easier and easier as she grows in personality and I am able to read her reactions and feelings to things. She is so cute with Josh too, the other day he came home and she was laying on my lap, he didn’t say a word but when she saw him she had the biggest smile! Josh used to be worried that she didn’t like him, but now that she is older and recognizing other people there is no doubt that she loves her daddy! : )

Crocheting Crazy

The last few days I have been doing a ton of crocheting. Every time Claire goes down for a nap or when she lets me set her down to play I pick up my hook and yarn and go at it. Yesterday I finished a hat for Claire’s stocking and a chunky, child size pom pom hat for my Etsy. I am now working on another chunky pom pom hat for a baby. I hope that next week I will be able to post a few more things to my shop.

Autumn Snow

Hello! I haven’t been able to do much blogging lately, but life has been a little busy and Josh and I have been dealing with a cold. Plus I have hardly touched my camera the past few weeks, and when I do it to take pictures of Claire. However it snowed the other day, so during Claire’s nap I grabbed my camera and ventured outside. We didn’t get very much but it was a nice change to the rain we have been getting.

Bella, my in-laws dog, has been staying with us for a few days and she was super happy out in the snow.
