Roman’s Party

We had a simple party for Roman. I made some hats and streamers for him over the weekend and then we got some eclairs from the bakery down the street. (They are so good!) We let Roman go to town and he ate the whole eclair! He never gets sweets so he was loving it! I’ll post instructions on how to make the streamers and hats later today.

Happy Birthday Roman!

One year ago I gave birth to Roman. We love him to the stars.

Happy Weekend

Now that Roman is pretty much recovered and The Commission Project is done (we dropped off the paintings to be mailed this morning) we can actually focus on the Holidays. I’m still trying to figure out how I can make a big impact on Christmas morning but not buy anything we have to put in storage or take with us to France. Any ideas?

What are you doing this weekend? Here are pictures of Roman from this week when he was feeling like his old self. It’s crazy to compare where he was 2 weeks ago to now. ps Babble links below

These are hilarious (Look at the froggy’s face.)
I kind of want to get one of these for Moses, Could I make one myself?
New Martha Stewart Crafting Furniture. Now you can have a craft room that looks like Martha’s.
I’ve been obsessed with these since last year. I want some for my boys.
These are the best “quiet toys”. I use them on the plane or at church and they totally work.
Best “Baby’s First Christmas” ornament I’ve ever seen.

It’s Beginning to Look a lot…

Roman was in a cheery mood last night so I started to get a little festive and wrap up some gifts for family and friends. Christmas is the one time when all the wrapping paper and ribbon and little boxes that I needlessly collect over the year get validated. I’m getting a post ready with my favorite wrapping and ribbon sources. Check back tomorrow.

Laying Low

Roman had his cleft palate surgery last Thursday so I’m laying low for a few days. The surgery went well but he is sad and needs lots of cuddling. Sad babies break my heart.

Be back soon.
