I know it is kind of early for Christmas stuff - but my work had a 'crafty' fair that
I went to so I needed to make some stuff!
I saw this idea on Pinterest and decided to re-create!
Here are the supplies:
Muffin Tin - 6 count (2.99 at Walmart)
Hot Glue Gun (Not Pictured)
Step 1: Spray Paint the muffin tins red
Step 2: Get your white paint out and paint the circles white!
Step 3: Decorate! I hot glued the nose shape and painted orange over top. The eyes and mouth are just painted on with black paint. The rosy red checks are sponged on with a circle sponge. I used the paint pen to write "Let it Snow" and to draw little snowflakes all over. Then I watered down some white paint, dipped a paint brush and shook it over the entire thing to make it look like snow!
Step 4: Add a ribbon and you are set! Such a fun decoration for the holidays!
I am officially back to work which is super sad but at the same time it is good (if that makes sense at all...)
I hate leaving my little peanut at daycare - I would much rather be the one receiving all her baby smiles all day. Nope, our awesome daycare lady gets them all! So back to work.... it's like riding a bike. Seriously! It feels like I never even left which is pretty weird.
My workload isn't completely full yet so I have been browsing pinterest (of course!)
Ok - I know it is only the middle of October but I keep finding myself checking out Christmas stuff! WHAT!? I think with a little one in our family I just can't wait and want to make it super special. AND I am excited to take some pictures of her for our holiday card - with ideas I found off of pinterest.
I can't believe my little pumpkin head is already 2 months old! It is really amazing how fast this is going compared to how slowly the weeks went when I was pregnant.
Anyway.... here is our 2 month update!
Olivia is really smiling now! Before we really had to work at getting her to smile and now she is doing it all the time. She is especially smiley in the mornings!
She LOVES sitting up and being upright. She has been hanging out in her Bumbo and is improving significantly. It is crazy how just a week ago she was still pretty wobbly and now she is much better!
She rolled over for the first time a couple days ago! From her tummy to her back - and she did it twice. I was on the floor looking through the camera viewfinder and all of a sudden there she goes! I was so surprised that I didn't even take a picture. I set her back up on her stomach and she did it again (this time I got the action shots!).
I packed up some of the clothes she no longer fits into (sad). I have a huge tub that I have been putting clothes into and it is about half way full now. But in other news I organized her drawers and clothes so she is all set for fall!
We are working on getting a schedule down so we aren't so crazy when we go to daycare. So far it has been going pretty well.
Other than that she has been sleeping great - she goes 4-5 hour chunks at night so I am only waking up with her once. She rarely cries. She loves her Mommy and Daddy and we love her!
Seriously.... being a mommy is the best thing in the world.
Dan and I met in college, happily married since September 2010. We had a baby girl on August 3rd, 2012 - she is just AMAZING! I love watching her learn new things - Life is Great! Everyone has a story... this is ours.
