feeding the reindeer

in order for santa to come to one's home, you must lay out some food for the reindeer, no? turn up the volume on this one, friends. cayden had a great time spreading the reindeer food around. and santa? he most definitely came to visit! hoping to have photos from the big day up tonight!

too cool for santa


for real. way too cool for santa this year. our chill little dude from last year's santa photo is no more. but i swear i read something on the interwebs just yesterday that said something along the lines of showing fear of santa is a sign of intelligence. so we'll just go with that. (& according to this photo, my kid? is going to be a genius!)

also, can we please note that santa must now use a cell phone. it's clearly too important to leave his side! (i was going to photoshop it out, but it made me laugh when i saw it. so go ahead, you can laugh too!)

there's a thief among us

& he likes to steal baby jesus. a lot.
(sorry for the darkness, but you gotta be sneaky when catching a thief on film.)

{not so} wordless wednesday: busy, busy

guys? i've been the worst at updating the blog lately. i know this. you know this. we all know this. & i apologize. things have been super crazy with the holidays and travel and whatnot. and well, other things have kept me a little bit busy too.

things like chasing around a one and a half year old (toddler mamas, i think we can all agree that this alone tires one out, right?). and we've had a sick cat who still happens to be at the vet this morning. (we think it's just a uti, so nothing really serious, but still, it's a mess to deal with.)

but i would guess the biggest thing that's kept me busy (and no, it's not the shop. but hoping to change that soon.) would be the whole growing a baby thing. pause. rewind. read that sentence again. yes! i'm pregnant. cayden will be a big brother next summer and we couldn't be more excited! sure, cayden really has no idea what that means yet, but he will soon enough!

we had an appointment this past friday to check for a heartbeat. it seems i have a tilted uterus, so rather than make us wait another four weeks to hear the heartbeat, they squeezed us in for an ultrasound. (already? this kiddo is taking after big brother. the exact same thing happened with cayden!) so we got to see lil bit. and lil bit? is a wiggle-worm. with a heart rate of 171 at the moment.

words can't even describe how excited we are! oh, and for those interested, i'm 12 weeks today. and keeping this secret since we found out at 5 weeks? has. been. torture. which may explain the lack of blogging. but now that it's out in the open? more blogging should be able to happen without worry of me letting our secret out. cause, duh, cat's out of the bag now...

and it wouldn't be a {not so} wordless wednesday without a photo:
lil bit

a first for hugs & kisses designs

new bags

hugs & kisses designs had its first request for a wholesale order, and while not a super-huge order, i was thrilled at the opportunity. four of my diaper knitting bags will be for sale in a knitting shop in connecticut! how cool is that? the usual two pockets now have one smaller pocket, er, sleeve, added for knitting needles to slip into. cool, right?

and since this was my first wholesale order, it taught me a few things about preparing multiple items. and how i'll handle this type of transaction in the future. yay! i love learning new things!

since cayden joined our family, jeremy and i have spent hours upon hours just staring at him and observing him.

"he has your lips and my ears."

you know the kind of conversations i'm talking about right? we were pretty much convinced that he looked more like me as a child than jeremy. until last week, when this photo surfaced. short of the brown eyes, could cayden look any more like jeremy circa the 1970s? no, i think not...
