What I'm up to...

Hey Everyone! Just wanted to post about my life these days since its probably obvious to my followers that I'm in babyland lately! lol

This is the adorable reason for my absince from the blogosphere...

This is my daughter Lyla! She is such a joy...I can't even begin to express my gratitude to God for giving me such an amazing little girl. As most of you know, I went 10 days late with her and she was 9 pounds at birth!! She's a big healthy girl and an amazing nurser and sleeper. She sleeps in 4-5 hour chunks at night already (at 2.5 weeks) and is a VERY healthy 10 pounds 5 ounces. She's 95th percentile for weight and head and 80th percentile for length!! I'm insanely blessed to have such a mellow baby since Liam is quickly approaching the "trying twos" and is definitely trying my patience more than ever. He loves his baby sister and is always wanting to kiss and hug her (as you can tell by the picture above). I literally have to watch him like a hawk because I think he would smother her with affection if he could! lol
So, now that I am on the other side of the birth and can finally come up for air I've been browsing TONS of magazines looking for inspiration for my house and for future projects...as well as browsing all the blogs. I am on the lookout for DIY art for living room, master bedroom, nursery, guest room, bathrooms ETC! Literally I have TONS of art that I want to make so if anyone knows of some cute, slightly funky, unique, possible art projects let me know!! I also have several furniture projects sitting in my garage collecting dust that I haven't been able to get to! I am missing my creative outlet like crazy and am so excited to get back into it soon! I hope you all haven't given up on me...I will be back and "hopefully" better than ever very soon!!!! Love and miss you all!


  1. She is just beautiful! So glad she is such an easy baby. Makes having two that much better! My youngest was 10.5 and was the easiest baby too. Must be all that extra padding that makes them so calm!

  2. Sounds like we are in the same boat. My 2 year old tries to smother the baby with love on a daily basis. I cannot believe how many times I've uttered the words, "Please don't sit on the baby" over the last 3 months! Reverse silhouettes are my current favorite quick art project.

  3. thanks so much....this is a kid that was practicing football on Monday...someone just emailed me that the doctor just came by and told the parents HE did not expect him to live through the night... He has 3 little brothers & an amazing mom & dad that KNOW GOD & KNOW that God is in the HEALING BUSINESS.

  4. She is gorgeous Kelsey- congrats!!
