I just love your name, it's beautiful! And so is the name Olivia!
I am so glad to have discovered you... we have so much in common. I also have a little girl and am a stay at home mom (who loves interior decorating and flower gardening). Annabelle is almost 11 weeks old and I just love being a mommy. Your little Olivia is such a doll!
I was just reading to Annabelle today as well. The tip of the week for 8 weeks old on Americanbaby.com said to start reading books to your baby, so we went to the library and have been reading together ever since then.
Have you ever heard of the Toot and Puddle books by Holly Hobbie? They are so darling! Annabelle stairs and smiles at the bright pictures on the page...it's so much fun!
Very pretty sight you have here. I would love to know how to put music or a video onto mine!
You and Olivia have a lovely day now and we'll check in on you again, you can be sure!
P.S. I found you by the comment you left at Aunt Teas. And I am glad that I did.:)
I have loved getting to know her, learning her likes and dislikes, sharing joys and sorrows, swapping ideas and inspirations, sharing a blog, talking about hopes and dreams until we thought our heads we explode, celebrating babies and the openings of etsy shops, trading parenting advice, and prayers that we're doing it half way right. Trying to help each other (over the phone) with difficult sewing tasks and new projects. Rejoicing when it all worked out ok. Last fall, a good sized box arrived and in it was a most cherished quilt. Made just for my little Sadie~Rose.
I've learned so much from her, laughed until I cried, woke up to birthday greetings from her,
called her when I'm upset or sad and been cheered up just by the sound of her voice. Found packages sitting on my doorstep totally unexpected, e-cards in my inbox just to say "hi" or proclaim the new season. We e-mail, instant message, and call each other daily. Always checking in, always sharing. She is my sanity when my "real life" get's out of control. She is my prayer partner and encouraging friend. A shoulder to lean on and cry on, if need be. She will share a Word or point me back to Jesus when the days are tough and when they are good. She's got the best giggle. Ever. She can always find something to be cheerful about. She is honest and real. She's gorgous. On the inside as well as the outside. She is extremly creative. She looks for the best in everyone. She is so in-love with her husband. She is the best mommy to Miss Annabelle Lucy. She loves Jesus and always seeks to follow Him.
It has been one of my biggest joys and blessings of my adult life - to have her a my friend.
So on this happy day I wish you, Chelle, a day full of joy, good news, a happy toddler, a mail box full of goodies, friends and family calling with good wishes, and all the cupcakey polka dotted goodness you deserve.
