Thanks, Baby

Mornin', y'all!  How's it going?  We're still super-busy with the wee baby, but hubs kept an eye on him for a bit and I got to go down to my poor neglected craft room and make some cards.  And they're still baby-related because I needed more thank yous!

Still totally loving Moon Baby.  I made a dozen of these, so I kept it very simple and ignored the urge to add some baker's twine or do Wink of Stella on the little star.  Because I didn't want to wait for Wink of Stella to dry--I sent off at least half of the cards I made already.  And they count for this week's Paper Players challenge:

I am really, really missing my paper crafting time (though wee baby snuggles are fun too), so I think on the weekends when the hubs is home and enjoying his own baby snuggles that I should make a concerted effort to get in the craft room.  I suppose I could try to do that in the evenings, but it seems like once hubs gets home we make dinner and then it's time to try to convince the kiddo to fall asleep so we can go to sleep too.  Anyway,  I reallyreallyreally want to work on some scrapbook pages but first I need to print off some photos like this one...

TINY BABY FEETS!!!  This was another shot from the newborn photo session when Ryan was 8 days old; as of today he's five weeks old.  He's already changed a lot from the newborn photos, but he's still absolutely adorable with all that crazy hair.  We blow dry his hair after baths! (Low heat and very carefully, rest assured we aren't doing anything that will hurt him.  Bonus:  it all sticks straight out from his head after we dry it, which is totally hilarious.)

Anyway, wee lad is asleep right now so I need to get cleaned up.  Our adventure for the day:  Imma try taking him to the grocery store.  Wish me luck.  Cheers, y'all!

Cute, cute. Good luck at the grocery store. I am sure you will be just fine. LOVED the card. Not much going on here in Texas. I've officially started the mowing season. Hershey likes to be out in the back while I'm doing it and is not at all intimidated by the mower. Love you!!!

Oh how exciting Christy, you have a real live little one in the house! Your thank you card is precious, and perfectly CAS. I hear you with having to resist the urge to add embellishments! Thanks so much for joining us this week at The Paper Players!

I am super impressed, and I love the quick card! :) I definitely got a lot more stamping done when mine was tiny and slept for much longer stretches. She seems to sense that I get stamping out because then she quits napping for the rest of the day! And yes, come evening-time and I am wiped out! I forget all about how much I wanted to create something. :) Good luck with the store- until well after he's old enough to behave, haha!
