Great Idea

I saw this over at Making It Lovely and I think its a great idea for taking photos of your baby every month. She used felt and ribbon with an interchangeable button center and will use to pin on her baby's shirt and take a picture of her each month in the same chair to see how she grows.

Sheesh. Jack is going to be 4 weeks old on Sunday. I need to get my butt in gear and see what I can come up with to use for him.

Second Airplane

We went back into Marshall's a little while ago and The Man decided that we did, indeed, need the second airplane for Jack's room. I'm not alone in my justifications. I have a partner!

I found a mobile at Ikea awhile ago and I bought it, since it was cheap and white. It is super long, but I figured I could restring it and make it short enough.I did restring it yesterday. I'm not quite sure that its short enough yet. I haven't decided yet what to do with it. Hang it anyway? I'd hate to put the hole in the ceiling and change my mind. Still thinking it over.

Fun Things for Jack's Room

Found these via someone else's blog (can't remember who. . .) and thought they would be something fun to frame up and hang in Jack's room. Whenever he gets a room. You know, the whole its-for-the-baby excuse again.

Still. I think it will be cute if I ever get around to framing them. I am starting to wonder how much I will ever accomplish around here from here on out.
