Being Crafty

Being a stay at home mom is a little bit weird.
I’ve never spent this much time at home by myself…
I have always been in school or had a job or both.
So now that I have all sorts of time during the day, I needed something to do.
Inspired by an adorable onesie my cousin Stephanie made for Riker,
I decided to try making my own.

Isn’t he just the cutest little model?
He looked so adorable at Church!
Here are all my finished projects:
onesies 013

They turned out so cute…
anything that comes in teeny tiny baby size is cute, though!
(Just don’t look too close at the stitching…my sewing skills leave much to be desired.)

Oh, and I realized that I don’t have a single picture of me with my baby boy
(well, there are a couple from the hospital…but those will never be displayed publicly because I look like a hot, swollen mess in all of them)
So I asked TJ to take a picture of us before church…

His photo taking skills leave much to be desired.

So cute! Someone gave us a onesie like that when we still thought the baby was a boy. I'm hanging on to it for potential future sons. :)

I'm totally impressed by your sewing skills. I can't sew at all.

"SEW" cute!! Okay, that was a lame thing to write, but I'm secretly thinking I'm clever! Riker looks adorable, and I love the onesies and will probably copy you!

You're too cute. I don't think we can be friends... ha ha! Seriously though... can you please teach me your home-making/crafty skills? I'm lacking in that department very much. Isn't that a pre-requisite for having babies? You have to be able to be/do/create cute things? Oh well... ha ha! Love you!
