I received this awesome moses basket as a gift from my good friend when Alice was born. We absolutely loved using it with Alice and of course will use it with this baby too. I made a bumper for it yesterday and some sheets for it today. So we’ve got the boy version and the girl version. But honestly I like the squirrels the best. Aren’t they the cutest? I mean who can resist little orange squirrels munching on acorns! Not me. I’ll definitely use that one either way, but don’t think I could bring myself to use the pink flowers for a boy. So we’ll see. Only 6 more weeks to go!

With the cooler mornings these days we’ve been enjoying some tea time together. The kids love it! I love that they’re learning to drink tea with me, even if it is with sugar and lots of milk. These pictures are from a week ago one morning having breakfast and tea out on the deck. Yeah for tea and the cooler weather that comes with it!

Ever since we got Prudence with her own little potty and her once upon a potty book and her potty seat, I was hopeful that she’d help in potty training Alice. It turns out she’s been great! I’ve not actually used the potty chair as we skipped that and went straight to the big potty for Alice. But we’ve used Prudence a lot. Alice loves to hold long conversations with her while she tries on the potty. I talk for Prudence and Alice tells her what a big girl she is. Prudence of course enjoys trying on her own little potty too. Well Prudence came with panties on, but we can never seem to find those little things and it crosssed my mind that she’s really needing to be a little more modest. So Prudence now has a little skirt of her own. I gave Alice the choice of 3 different fabrics to make the skirt and she chose this cute flanel (it also happened to be the one I liked the best). We had fun doing it together (well mostly Alice watched, but someday I’ll teach her to sew) and Alice is thrilled that Prudence has her very own skirt. I now really want to make a skirt out of this fabric for Alice. I think it would be SO cute. Enjoy the pictures.
Alice lets us know what Prudence thinks in this little video.
I’ve been working hard on Christmas presents for family these days. So maybe that skirt for Alice will have to wait. I also have hopes of making two things for the kids for Christmas and hopefully something for the new baby too! So even though its just the beginning of October, I don’t have much time to crank out all of this out before the baby gets here. Because I will NOT be sewing after this baby, at least for a while. So I only have 2 more months! Wish I could show pictures of the progress on Christmas presents, but you’ll just have to wait until after Christmas for those.
