Bathroom Break-In

We are all moved into our new place, mostly unpacked. Only one misfit box is left! I can't tell you how much I love having a dishwasher.

Here is a video I took of Zelda this weekend. Let me set it up for you. Zelda got into our winter bin and was then pretending to be a monster with the combo mitten/ice scraper. I had started filming her because she was growling and scratching at the bathroom door. She is such a funny and smart kid!

P.S I don't think I mentioned here that we are potty training. She is doing excellent! She has a potty in the front room and runs around half naked. Only wears a diaper during nap and overnight. She doesn't have any accidents, but I can't seem to get her to transition to panties. We went to Target and she picked out Hello Kitty, Dora the Explorer and Sponge Bob (boy undies). She loves wearing them, but doesn't seem to get that she can't pee in them. She doesn't give any warning either, just goes. Any advice for this hurdle is greatly appreciated!

We're Moving!

In 2 weeks. The day after we get back from my sister-in-laws wedding. I.CAN'T.WAIT. I'm super excited about the space we will be getting back (moving back into a 3 bedroom) and a DISHWASHER. Maybe, I'll even get back to blogging more reguarly. I have a huge backload of craft projects that I need to blog about. My newest one is a infant swing cover for a soon to pop cousin, and let me tell you, I think this is my greatest sewing accomplishment yet! I just hope it fits, hah!

Zelda "running"

I know some people have seen this already since it's on my YouTube page. It's about a month old and I forgot to post it here.

Updating with any regularity...

Just isn't my thing lately! Most people probably already know that I took a job at a yarn shop (very part-time) back in November. I'm really loving working there and it has really got me knitting a lot more at home. I am currently working on my FIRST pair of socks!

Jon is still doing his work thing. His hair is getting long and crazy. He's growing it out, so that he looks nice for his sister's wedding in June. And he just finished Mass Effect 3.

Zelda is growing like a bean and just a couple of days ago got her first 2 year molar in! She is saying some words. The ones she says really well and you can understand her are dada, mama, bye, no and yeah. She also says more (used for when she wants more and when she wants you to do something again), bubbles and water.

Also, the post from Jon's phone was really bad. I used the blogger app, which I won't be doing again. I couldn't turn the photos around and after uploading, it put that weird checker board on all the photos (which also happened to Kendall when she used the app)

OK enough chit chat - making with the photos already!

 The viking hat I made Jon!
 Zelda likes it! 
 Trying on shoes at Marshalls
 Through the tunnel at the playground
 Trying to doing a tongue roll like dad
 Walking sticks

 Bedtime (and our new dresser off craigslist in the background)
 Smiling (don't mind her dirty room, I'm re-organizing!)
 Loving her first taste of Nutella with peanut butter and apples!
 "Reading" books before bed tonight. She wouldn't let me read, just point out animals while she turned pages.
 Pretending to sleep on the rocker.
 She looks so big on the rocker!
 A picture my dad took while my parents were here a couple of weeks ago, and she's wearing the shrug I made her!
 Another great one from my dad of her real smile!
Zelda and my mom

I'm blogging from Jon's phone today so I can upload his pictures! He takes a lot of photos with his phone. Let's see how this works out!

Video from today

Zelda has the cutest "smile". It's not her natural smile, but what you get when you ask her to smile. You also get to see how well she can say the word no! Enjoy.

Lookie I made a post! I got a gentle nudge from a friend today to post some new pics of Zelda (thanks Anne!). Instead of talking all about what's been going on over the last 3 months, I'm just going to load this post up with pictures! Enjoy :)

 Lots of these pictures.
 The "don't take my picture, give me the camera. Why would you say no... wahhhhhh!"
 Must hold all toys while watching the TV.

Hat I made Zelda, it matches a sweater vest I made. Again, upset I wouldn't give her the camera.
