My favorite model.

Today is Zeke's 9 month birthday. I am shocked/sad/happy at how fast he's already grown up. It doesn't feel like it was that long ago when I was pregnant...he's such a big boy...he's almost crawling (eh, he's a little on the lazy side)  I try to take a mini photo shoot every two months to document his growth...really, I should do this every month! He's such a cutie and my favorite model :)

I love Anthropologie.

I love their stuff. It's earthy and artsy and...lovely. And expensive! (Especially for my thrifty taste) I saw this tutorial at http://ericandlele.blogspot.com/2010/11/tutorial-anthropologie-inspired-fabric.html to make the fabric patterned letters that I'm not entirely sure they even make anymore and I thought they were super cute. Since I had a niece and a nephew with birthdays coming up I thought to myself "Hey, that would be fun"

Fun? No.

It is alot harder than I realized to fold fabric around the 3D letter corners and insides. The first set (Tori) took me about 4-5 hours. The second set (Beau) took about 3. Hey, I improved! I also suffered multiple hot glue gun burns and a couple case of shouting at inantimate objects. They're not perfect and I kinda put the fabric on the B upside down but I'm still really proud of what I did. :D

I could have taken better pictures and if I get around to it, I'll probably retake and post the pictures with something better than crappy cell phone and overhead fan lighting.





Speaking of birthdays, Zeke will be 9 months old in 5 days!!!!! Which means in about 3 months, he'll be ONE. It's so bittersweet. I absolutely cannot believe it's already been that long....people weren't kidding when they said it would fly by. He's such a big boy. He is finally sleeping through the night, still isn't crawling (which is ok with me) and loves Moose A Moose. Gah, and he is so CUTE! I love my life as a mommy. :)
