The Green Dress

Remember this little number from around St. Patrick's day?

Well, I finally got around to updating it.  I was very lazy and neglected to document the process of transforming it. Sorry.

But I can tell you what I did before I reveal the finished product. :)

I removed the collar, the sleeves and the buttons. I took in the sides about 1 inch, took up the bottom hem about 6 inches, sewed closed the part that had been buttoned, and put darts in the front. I also turned the former bottom hem of the dress into a sash.

I like to think that the finished product is an improvement!

One Year

One year ago today the most amazing little person came into my life.

She's grown so much the last year. She's sooo close to walking on her own, and she's starting to say words like "mama", "dada", "kitty", & "nom".

Happy 1st Birthday, Serenity Faye!

Babies & Cats

I've come to the conclusion that babies are just cats in disguise. Or maybe it's vise versa? Anyway, I've got a list of evidence for my conclusion. ;)

1) Both cats & babies sleep a LOT.

2) Cats & babies eat. A LOT.

3) If you don't train them properly, cats & babies will go to the bathroom willy-nilly all over the place, instead of in designated areas.

4) Cats & babies can get comfortable in the most ridiculous positions.

5) Cats & babies want attention, or to be held at precisely the most inconvenient time possible. (Like when you have an overwhelming urge to go to the restroom)

6) Cats & babies are two of the most adorable & cuddly creatures in the universe!

7) Some people, once they have one cat, or baby, just can't stop with one, and next thing you know. BAM! Crazy cat lady and/or hoard of children.
