Little Reader

The other day I walked into Norah's room and found her like this:

I think she needs a bookshelf.

Autumn Fun

Last week my Uncle David and Aunt Diana came out to visit and while we snapped a few photos of them, Norah enjoyed the best thing about fall - playing in the leaves.

My latest craze

There is something so comfy cozy about a quilt. And there is something so snugly about a baby, so naturally every little baby deserves their own quilt to cuddle up in. These are two quilts I made for my sister's-in-law and their newborns. The first I made for baby Vivian and the chevron quilt (which Jason called the "Charlie Brown" quilt) is for baby Rowan.

Trick or Treat!

Other than the amazing Halloween experience I had in Nauvoo (seriously, that town knows how to party when it comes to Halloween) this was by far, hands down the best Halloween I have ever had. Having a little girl is more fun than I could have ever imagined. From the pumpkin carving to the dressing up, Norah was excited about everything. And just when she thought it couldn't get any better, people gave her candy. I have never seen her smile or giggle more than she did Halloween night. We dressed Norah as a ladybug, and despite the fact that her wings were quite large for her little self, she didn't seem to mind them at all! Jason was Harry Potter and I was Hermione Granger.

Pumpkin Carving

Yesterday we carved pumpkins and it was a blast. Norah was so cute helping Jason clean the slime out of the insides of the pumpkins. She didn't love the feel of the slime, but she loved using the scooping tool. Once the pumpkins were done, we lit them and Norah was giggling like crazy. Apparently it was the coolest thing she'd ever seen.
