Blessing Day


Whew! Now is the point in the summer where I begin to wonder where the summer has gone and marvel at the fact that it's almost over. Even with having a newborn I feel like we've had a busy summer. Jeremy and the kids definitely have, while I've mostly just watched them come and go. But last week was pretty crazy and I'm glad to have this week to recover before the craziness picks up again.

Yesterday in church Ryan was blessed. I got the crazy idea to make his blessing outfit and cut out all the pieces about a month ago. Then I had him weighed and realized he might not actually fit into it by the time he was supposed to wear it. So as I made it I had to adjust the seams which made for some interesting sewing. It ended up fitting well, but the leg holes were a little tight around his chubby thighs. I'm just amazed that I actually finished it in time (and a week ahead of time, not even the night before I needed it!), because I'm notorious for starting projects and never actually finishing them. I've got a few more recent sewing projects that I've actually finished that I need to share too.



And speaking of sewing, look at this really bad picture that I took with my phone:
He needed something sewn and I had to feed Ryan, so I set him up and he did it himself. I thought it was so cute I had to take a picture. He's a jack of all trades.

Baby crying, kids screaming, lunch needs to be made. It's crazy over here but I wouldn't trade it!

Cute cute cute. But um, you were supposed to tell me when you were blessing him so I could come to church...(in between all the craziness, of course).
