Hi buddies! I’m here for a quick update before having to get back to keeping track of 1 toddler, 1 newborn & 1 furbaby. There’s a lot of pee, poop and sleep that I need to keep track of on a daily basis!
Monumental Meltdowns & Magical Moments
There were a few weeks when I didn’t have any help and I really struggled. I couldn’t help but wonder…Am I doing something wrong? Is it supposed to be this hard? I really appreciated how honest my friend was when she told me that the first year after having her second kid was the hardest year of her life. It made me realize that I’m not alone. I’m not the only one who thinks this transition is sooo tough.
You hear lots of crying at our house these days – Evan throwing a tantrum, Joy crying because she’s hungry, Bella barking at a cat outside. Evan’s meltdowns have been monumental. Sometimes we’re just baffled and don’t know what to do.
As hard as it’s been to handle the tantrums, there are so many magical moments that just seem to make everything better in an instant.
A Sewing Dream Come True
I’ve always wanted to learn how to sew. A lifelong dream has finally come true~ I can proudly say that I can sew! Here are a few of my first sewing projects.
I love fabric so even before I knew how to sew I started collecting fabric. My collection was a mess until I ran into this awesome tutorial.
I really wanted this Leica iPhone case from Clickin Moms but never had a chance to get it. I saw a giveaway online and gave it a shot. I was totally surprised when they said I got one! The best part is they said I could have one to give away too!
The case is super cute and looks like a vintage Leica camera! It also has an anti-glare camera ring. Since I take so many photos with my iPhone any upgrades to the camera are a big bonus. I’ve had lots of cases before (good & bad) and this is my favorite so far! It’s sturdy, cute and makes me smile whenever I see it.
So if you think this case is as fabulous as I do then just leave a comment by midnight PST on 10/30/11 and I’ll randomly pick someone! [Congrats HSookiC!] You can also buy your own on the Clickin Moms website.
I’m not familiar with the real Missoni line but I love chevron patterns~ lol! The whole Target Missoni craziness happened last month and I couldn’t get in on the great deals because it was right after I had Joy. I heard that some stores were sold out within minutes of opening and the website kept crashing. I was able to talk to a very nice customer service person who tracked down a handful of makeup bags for me!
I felt so lucky that I nabbed these for myself and a few friends so I’d like to share one with you too! Just leave a comment by midnight PST on 10/30/11 and I’ll randomly pick someone! [Congrats Stacy Sung!]
Funny how of all the photos I took of Evan & Eleni my favorite ones ended up being iPhone photos.
Hope you all have a wonderful Halloween! Can’t wait to see your costumes~~! Here’s a peek at a little tiger…
