Sewing #13, #14



I have finished a couple of more little appliques.

Papercraft #35


The latest creation for the May class kit for Scrap with V. A hard one, I'm not used to using pink!

A few things we have been up to....

Last week we took a family trip to Dreamworld which we all loved. The best bits were
feeding the baby animals

going on the teacup ride and being able to make the cups spin
and getting aquainted with Dora the Explorer although it took a little while for Kaiden to warm to her.
On the home front...nudie runs after baths are a popular pastime

Kaiden MUST feed himself.
Loves looking in the mirror.
Favourite word is "ouchish".
Can follow simple instructions, like "take this to Daddy".
Recognises objects (especially cars!)
Recognises the actions that go with certain songs.

Scrapbooking Creations magazine


It's been a while since I have had a layout published but I'm thrilled that there are two in this month's Scrapbooking Creations magazine.

Papercraft #30, #31, #32

Happy Mother's Day! I have indeed been spoilt with a lie-in, cup of tea in bed (at my request), yummy bacon and tomato breakfast by Brett and a copy of the latest Ottobre magazine which has such funky and inspiring children's wear to sew including clothes for boys! Kaiden made a cute card with handprints at daycare. There's a vanilla slice (my favourite for morning tea). And we are going out later for dinner to a surprise destination!
I went out scrapbooking on Friday night which I haven't done for a month because of the Anzac day long weekend. So here's my latest scrapbooking efforts to share....

Kaiden update

Weight 10220 grams = 25th percentile
Height 80cm = 50th percentile
Head circumference = 463mm = 25th percentile

New words are "no" but normally in a string so it is "no no no no no no". Our boy has learnt one of the most powerful words in the English language! Wore his first pair of sneakers the other day and at first it was like he was walking in moon boots. Had his first swimming lesson today where Dad sat on the side of the pool while he was in the lesson with the instructor (no Dad in the pool which Brett said he would miss because he likes singing the silly songs), and yesterday he had his first day in the toddler room at daycare and had an absolute ball including a 2 1/4 hour nap on the mattress on the floor (no more cot).

Applique

Another boy applique...

And a pair of pants for a little girl, made and appliqued....

Sewing #9, #10 and #11


Here's a robot I made for a softie swap through the Essential Baby sewing forum. The little boy loves him!
Plus I made a little Miss Buttons for his sister.

And a cute little vintage dress softie for his Mum.


Kaiden has a new word for today "ouch". I think it came from Brett talking about the graze on his arm from when he has chopping down some of the tree out the back. And Kaiden also loves to spin around until he is so dizzy that he falls down! So cute!
