Trick Or Treat

Beckster is a skunk for Halloween this year. I made his costume from a Tom Arma pattern. It wasn't as challenging as I thought it would be to work with fake fur...but I will say that our house was totally covered with fur balls all week.

Three Months

I know I can't say every month "I can't believe he's ___ [age] already!" because that cliche will get annoying I will just say that I was at the hospital where he was born yesterday getting my flu shots and I was very touched emotionally remembering all the wonderful (and terrible) things about the day he was born. So many fun and wonderful things have happened since.

Some new things about Little Man:
*learned to roll over - both from the front to the back and the back to the front (he's so advanced - ha ha)
*outgrowing 3/6 month clothes
*enjoys watching tv with Dad
"dinner conversation" - talks while nursing
*trying to learn to sleep via Babywise - but it's tough on Mom to not run to him when he cries at night
*takes baths with daddy - kicks his legs in the tub
*shy around lots of people - doesn't do much but sit there
*loves getting naked and having diaper changed - but gets scared when the shirts are pulled over his head
*developed an interest in toys (rattle and playmat)
*he sticks his tongue out the side of his mouth when doing things
*when he stands up he raises his shoulders and stands on his tip toes like he's trying to be taller
*drools (yuck)
*learned to grab and hold on tight (Mom will now be wearing ponytails lots more often!)
*discovered his feet and loves to reach for them

He's still a very happy baby, and "talks" and babbles all the time now. It is so amusing to me to have these conversations with him. I absolutely love spending my days with him.

(this is a day late...but I've been having problems with blogger)

Say Cheese

Beckham and I had a photoshoot this morning while we were lounging in bed.

Fun With T-shirts

On Friday I was inspired by some recent J.Crew and Anthropologie tshirts that are way out of my budget. So I bought two $6.99 clearance tshirts from Gap and made these:

It was so fun. I love don't have hem anything!

I want to make a mobile for Beckham's nursery. I found so many cute inspiring ideas on etsy. I think we're going to go with a transportation theme.

See Any Resemblance?
