Rattle, rattle! :)

Look !! Anna Ruth can hold her own rattle now! Yesterday I managed to get her fingers open and get this rattle in. She started shaking it and looked so pleased with herself.

Her mama was pleased too! I may have even celebrated with clapping and "yeah's!" :)

This room (craft, laundry) is probably my top favorite room in the house currently :). It is where I go to get inspired and sew :) and have some quiet time with Anna Ruth. "Quiet" because this is where I usually feed her. She's not too still the rest of the day :)

Remember that awful "Before" shot in the post below of the fruit picture? Well, here's the after! This will be hung on this wall in our kitchen soon!
Look who already had fun with the chalkboard! (I realllllllly want a chalkboard wall, but this will have to do for now. :) )
yummo. I made the whole wheat bread off the back of the whole wheat flour bag yesterday. It is delicious!! While I was finishing up the bread so that it could rise I heard Anna getting quite upset in her crib.
I went to look and she had her foot stuck in between her crib slats! Silly girl wiggles all over her crib now. It was so pitiful looking with her tiny foot stuck!I heart pinterest. :) and the great ideas I find there! Such as this "Chocolate banana sipper".
It is delicious, better than icecream, and healthy.
Find it here:
A little bit of God's love We went to see Grandma Capper for a bit today. We weren't there very long and I wished we didn't have to leave so soon at lunch! We will go earlier next week. Anyway, Anna Ruth had a VERY dirty diaper while Grandma was holding her! She did the last time we were there too! Grandma said "Well, if you ever need her to have a bowel movement just come bring her to me."! Hilarious. :)

and now-more of what you really came to this blog for!

Thanks to momma and daddy for coming over last night for dinner! (and trying another new recipe-chickpea patties...just ok, not worth posting and I didn't even get a pic)
This is the only picture from the night because we were too busy playing and have fun!

I'm not usually a fan of big bows. (Gasp!)
However, this one I really like :) Isn't she the cutest?

*A special "hello" to my Aunt Lynda :). In response to your question, my mom doesn't smock anymore. She doesn't have the time with all these grandchildren we keep having :) . She still makes beautiful quilts though!

love the picture of Anna Ruth & Grandma Capper! She tried to hold Malachi but he was TOO wiggly, ha! Love her smiling too, and kind of funny (in a sad way of course) about her leg getting stuck, since we JUST talked about that?!? Was the bread good for sandwiches? If so, will you send me the recipe? Love you!

Oh - LOVE the headband too...I want to learn how to crochet (or knit? I've obviously not-so-knowledgeable about this, ha!) the cute headbands for Kyla with 3 strands & a flower? Ideas?

In answer to Lynda's question, I do still have all the dresses I smocked for my girls and Kyla has worn some of them. When Anna Ruth gets a little bit bigger, I'm hoping for a cousin picture with all the girls wearing their Mommas' matching dresses.....

LOVE the pic of Anna smiling so big with her wild hair. So sweet. And the headband is precious--but you know I'm a bow fanatic. :) The bread pics made my mouth water. And I love the chalkboard. Great idea.
