Crafting

As the fill-in babysitter for the past few weeks, Owen and Corban and I have had some great play time. Here's a little peek at some of the ways we've passed our time...

Moving comes with a lot of boxes. Let me clarify that. A LOT of boxes. So I decided to get crafty and make something. Like this bed. James did help a little when the cutting got tough. That was some meeeean cardboard. I presented Corban with his new bed, perfect for Puppy...

My bestie Janelle (or in "Borbie" terms "Nelle") asked what kind of diapering we would do until Jaeda was big enough to fit into our Smartipants. I was seriously considering buying some newborn cloth diapers, since we're pretty sure we'll need them again...

When I pinned this Anthropologie-esque DIY shower curtain, I had no idea what my spring break would contain. Mary Jackson did, though. Nine hours, two bags of gummy worms, and one package of cookies later, we emerged victorious.  ...

Corban is learning to feed himself with silverware. Corban loooves bath time. Isn't he cute?? We're still going strong with the cloth diapering. When we had the flu (out both ends), that was no fun. But still. It's been worth it! Look at that little belly bulging out. We visited with Jeff...
