The Little Stinker, I Mean Sweetie!

I usually give Aurelia her burp clothe to play with, she somehow got it wrapped around her shoulders like a a shawl one morning!

Smiling up at Momma

What a little sweetie!

Ah Ha! There's the little stinker!

With Daddy

One morning Nate was very thoughtful and got up with Aurelia so I could sleep in for a bit. Sleeping in didn't last long. Not even 15 minutes and Nate yells to me from the livingroom, "Honey, she had a blowout" I yell back at him, "It's just poop, deal with it!" He yells back, "It is really bad, I need help."

So I drag myself out of bed and into the living room to find this!

If Aurelia could talk, "What? Who, me? I didn't do anything!"

Nate, "Hurry up, it is starting to smell really bad!"

More enjoyable times, going for a run with Daddy!

Sitting up!!!

Aurelia has been sitting up lately, she is getting better and better every day. She started out sitting in her Boppy pillow last week.

This week we moved on to just having a couple pillows behind her in case she were to get excited about something and throw herself back, as babies do.

Sometimes she leans way forward,
and ends up doing a face-plant and switching to tummy time

Here she is reclining, on the pillows provided for such an occurrence!

Don't mind the spit-up in this photo, I didn't realize she urped until after the picture

Here she is, sitting up all by herself, she is growing up so fast!!!

My Favorite Diaper Bag (so far)

This is my 3rd, and favorite diaper bag that I have made so far.

It all started when I found some jeans for a majorly good deal, I got 4 pair of jeans at TJ Maxx on clearance for 50 cents, and one was 70 cents. They are size 54-60 waist, so I am not going to wear them, but remake them into other things.

This was my first use of the pants, I used one leg of these Levi's jeans, and I still have a large portion of the mid-leg material left! I paired it with cream and pink houndstooth, it is also reversible, but I think I will keep the jean side out, so we will call it lined.
This pair of jeans was button fly!

Inside, I used a magnet clasp, with cost more than all the material that went into the bag, and the bottom of the pant leg for the pockets

The pockets are just perfect

The front pocket fits a lot of stuff and I can also fit my cellphone in the coin pocket

Kiss, Man and Wife

The wedding was supposed to be outdoors, but it was raining and we moved inside. This is the beautiful view we got to see when it stopped raining for a bit and the fog cleared off for a few minutes.

My smiley baby Aurelia

With Great-Auntie Sharon, she wouldn't give her up :)

Jodi and Dustin, the next on the list of Craven cousins to get hitched

Present in the mail from Auntie Katrina, we love clothes!!

Hanging out with Mateo, kicking each other in the face

I have been trying to get her started on cereal,

so far it has not been going so well,

she is not very impressed with it,

as you can tell by the look on her face!

She thinks her fingers are more tasty :)
