First, my Mom and I made this easter basket!
I bought the basket at our local craft store for $2.50 and asked Mom to make a lining for it. After she finished that (in about 5 seconds!) I embroidered Chloe Jo's name on it. I think it turned out great and am excited to fill it up and give it to Chloe Jo! Also, we made it so we can just reuse it year after year and I won't have to buy new baskets each year. That does mean we will be putting it up to where Chloe Jo can't get to it!
Chloe Jo has become more interested in dolls over the last month. This makes me soooo happy! I loved my Cabbage Patch Dolls while I was growing up and I am going to pass them down to her. I really hope she loves them as much as I did. They may have to take the place of a real sibling!
This is a picture from Friday. Chloe Jo started standing more and more and then on Sunday....
All of a sudden, she just started walking. She is so extreme. When she decides to do something, she just does it! She had taken a step here and there, but not more than one and then she took 8 all together! I got a little teary eyed over it.
I hope all of you had as great a weekend as I did! Thanks, as always, for reading Blogger Buddies!

We're doing pretty good here. Now let's take away the hands....

She is getting faster and faster at crawling and she also stands without assistance. I've been saying this for weeks, but she is days away from walking.

Brianna is pure preciousness! She is three weeks old and I haven't been able to see her since the day she was born. We were so excited to go!
Aunt Chelle even let Chloe Jo hold Brianna...that is, until she started poking her ear and smacking her in the tummy. I must work on being gentle with her before we see them again. Brianna is the only one that seems to make Chloe Jo look small.
Chloe Jo seemed pretty proud of herself when Aunt Chelle let her hold Brianna a second time. She was so funny with her throughout the day. When we first walked into their house, Chloe Jo just stared at her for a while. Everytime Brianna would cry Chloe Jo would look at her and then look at Aunt Chelle and then she would whine if Aunt Chelle didn't fix the problem right away. It was almost as if she was saying, "Brianna is crying. Go help her." It was super cute and sweet. She'll make a good big sister some day.
We had a great time with Aunt Chelle and Brianna (and Uncle Chris at the end of our trip). We can't wait to see you again!

Also she has expanded her vocabulary by one word today: Yum!
Other words that she says are:
Momma (for the record, this was her first word!)
Book (more like boo, but she always has a book in her hand when she says it)
She also waves "bye bye" and gives kisses and hugs.
We are blessed!

We didn't have Tuesday Ladies today. Sadness. I always enjoy going and having a good time.
Chloe Jo and I have also been going to the park. We've gone every day since Friday.

1/2 yard of fabric for the bodice
10 yards of tulle for the dress
Foam core board
Hot glue gun
Ribbon in three different sizes (3/8 in, 1 in, 1 1/2 in)
Needle and thread
The first thing you need to do is make a pattern for the bodice of the dress. Fold a piece of paper in half (I taped four pieces together to make it the size I wanted) and draw half of the bodice with the fold in the middle.
Cut the pattern out while paper is still folded.
Open the pattern and it will be a symetrical pattern.
