DIY Dino Hoodie

It was my cute nephews 1st birthday last month and his favorite Auntie (Me!) wanted to make him something cool....
Off to Pinterest I went and saw this super cute Dino Hoodie (I don't have a specific link as there are many)

I picked up the supplies at Wal-Mart because they have felt and the Target in my town does not.  I found a cute little hooded sweatshirt and a couple squares of orange felt.

All the tutorials I found are all the same.  I used some interfacing in the 'spine' to give it a little more substance.  I also added a T to the front (T for Teagan).  He loved it!

Sorry about the pictures.... chasing around a one year old trying to get good pictures is harder than it looks!

Time gets away...

I love being home with Olivia....it is amazing getting to see her grow, seeing her wide open mouth smiles, baby snuggles, naps on my chest - I love everything about it!

Holy cow is it easy to lose track of time! Last week I lost track of my days and completely missed a meeting that I was supposed to be at! Kind of embarrassing but what can you do when you are too engrossed with your adorable baby girl!

I mean - wouldn't you want to spend ALL your time with this?

It is going to be super tough to leave this little girl when I have to go back to work!

Never Forget....

My heart is heavy with the thought of all the people lost on 9/11. 
Remember the cost of hate and spread LOVE always.
Thoughts and prayers.

One Month Update

My baby girl is one month old already...

And she fits into the outfit I made her when I was pregnant.  See tutorial here.  I must say - it is much cuter on!

She has gained just over 2 pounds since birth and has grown sooo much.  She is definitely filling out and is getting some adorable baby rolls (Micheline Arms!). She is just starting to take an interest in toys (rattle) when I shake them for her.  She has been sleeping in her own room since 2 weeks old and sleeping fabulously.  She is losing some hair - mostly on the top of her head so we will see if she loses it all or not. 

Now for some more pictures!

Just love her!

This is going too fast...

I can't believe that my little girl is already four weeks old!
It is so crazy that I can see her growing in front of my eyes.  Babies really do change SOOO much!

She is 4 weeks old and weighs 10 pounds even.
We are starting to see more intentional smiles.
She sleeps 4-5 hour chunks at night (yay!)
She loves her mommy and daddy.
She is already outgrowing some clothes (some she hasn't even worn yet).
I love her more than I can even describe... she has made my heart whole!
