Something that I thought our family of four would never experience happened last February: we have an addition in the form of a baby human!
Yes, I said NEVER. I knew that having kids is not for me even at the age of fifteen. Somehow, I influenced my sister and she and her boyfriend went for more than a decade child-free. But plans change and now we have a Little Miss (who looks a lot like me *aherm aherm*).
So far, I have not been working hard at keeping my promise to make things for her. I have made her several blankets, this roly-poly dress (not this super cute gingham she’s wearing, sadly), and a mobile.
But now that she’s old enough for visits to little old Aunty Meream’s house, we can go ahead and start sewing/making cutesy things together. She even comes ready with her very own pin cushion, look!
I kid, that’s not a pin cushion around her left wrist. That’s a plushie that makes sounds. But in my head, it’s a pin cushion and it’s a sign of things to come. We are sure to have many crafty adventures together, I am sure. I apologize for the blurry photo. She’s very good at that “shake limbs constantly” thing that babies do.
