Shephard, my son's doll is well loved but not often played with these days (put aside in favor of plastic super heroes)...  so when Cleary spent the day doting on him I couldn't help but to steal these shots.  

I think my needy teether inspired all of the extra care.

"I've got some milk to make him feel better"  

um... that's normal, right????  either way I was one proud Mama!

this moment

"A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember."  Soule Mama

Finding time to squeeze a bit of work into each day is getting more difficult as my 2 year old becomes more 2 and my 7 month old more mobile.   *sigh*  the 7 month old that began cruising at 5 months... is that even possible?!?!  These days I try to sneak a few stitches while they play... 
caught this one trying to escape,
and I get design help from this one.  I can't complain about that!

and somehow I manage to finish creating a new addition to Naptown Boys;  Oslo the owl is the first of many woodland creatures "Naplings"

I also made a robot for Cleary.  Throughout the making of the robot shrieks of delight "you are making a ROBOT FOR ME!!!!!" were heard anytime Cleary caught a glimpse.

'robot' is well loved

rainbow rug and a bit of sunshine

just like a dream... especially when the little bunny family hops through the yard.
