Kate's on house arrest

Not really.

But she likes wearing my running watch around her ankle. At first glance, heck even at second or third glance, it looks like an ankle bracelet used for electronic monitoring. What's her crime you ask? Apparently dirty toenails and chipped polish.




Moving on....

A month or so ago Kate and I attended a Tippy Toes party. They use your child's handprints, fingerprints, footprints, etc (and by etc I mean, a newborn's bum cheeks to form a big pumpkin on a serving bowl) to make pictures on pottery.

We finally got ours back a couple of weeks ago, and boy do we love it! We want more!!

Handprints make the flowers

Footprint made the gator





You can't see it very well in this picture but her fingerprints made the cheerleaders super sculpted biceps.
Is this stuff precious or what?
Oh, and here's some pics from the weekend. We attended Sara Gale's first birthday party and spent a lot of time hanging out with friends and fam. You know, the usual.





Tip: I cut the feet out of all of Kate's cute tights from last year that were too small (and some from two years ago) and voilĂ ! Now she's using them for leggings! Talk about getting your money's worth. She had so many striped, polka dot, and other crazy patterned ones that I just wasn't ready to see the adorable lil' things headed to the storage bin. We're getting at least one more year out of 'em!



























My favorite pic of the weekend.

I looooove the leggings idea! None to cut around these parts, but I will store that for future use when I have a little girl someday (MANY years in the future, of course.)

PS. Haven't found the right pair of jeans yet, but will post when I do!

Agreed, I need to keep the legging idea in mind for future use.

Thanks for sharing the leggings idea!

I'll share one:Keep all of those smocked dresses and one day you can cut them short and use it as a smocked top!

I just found your blog -- actually it was on my "Recommended Reading" list on my Google Reader so I thought I'd come check it out!

Your baby girl is adorable, and I LOVE the idea to cut the tights and make them into leggings -- I'm totally gonna steal that!
