girly girl.

Oct 23, 2008

pretty bowstoday a package arrived for claire, darling little flower bows and headbands to show off her long brown locks. i ordered them from an etsy shop, prettybabybowtique. trust me, don’t drop $25+ at an overpriced specialty baby store for these when you can easily order from etsy at less than half the cost. i adore them!
as for updates, we spent a good 4 hours at the dreaded hospital today for claire’s kidney ultrasound and urologist appointment. claire was such a good girl the entire time (she saves the screaming fits for home!) the doctor said from glancing at the films that her kidney tissue looks like it is growing and the blockages do not look any worse. praise God for a little speck of positive news! so it’s wait and see with what they will do about the blockages as she gets older. we’re praying that she simply outgrows them. oh and she weighed about 10 and a half pounds! wow. she is a superchunk already. time to ask the pediatrician about taking her off the high calorie premie formula.
thanks for all your prayers and kind words from my last post. it means so much to me to have such encouragment from friends, family and even people i’ve never met. this process has been a rollercoaster of emotions but your comments, emails, phone calls and visits give me strength to keep going and fight through this. i can’t express how i feel except to say i love you all so much.

glitter time.

Oct 7, 2008

pumpkin suppliesclaire and i had our little craft time today with tons of glitter and mini pumpkins. i have to say claire wasn’t much help. she just laid back and chilled while i worked away! 🙂 i’m not really sure how successful this project was. by the end my entire kitchen table was covered in glitter (my a/c must have caused some sort of glitter drift) and the pumpkins ended up looking so-so. i need to email jaimee rose and ask her how in the heck you glitter them since it’s nearly impossible to pick them up after you slather them in glue. it gets all smeary and sticky but i tried my best.  here’s the results.

oh how i adore martha stewart. is there anything she can’t do in the most perfect mary poppins way? one of my biggest dreams is to convince her to be my mentor and start my own hipster homemaker empire. except instead of button down shirts everyday, i’d wear flirty retro dresses from anthropologie and chie mihara heels. a girl can dream, right?

anyway, one of her most genius ideas is glittered pumpkins. jaimee rose over at the az republic has already gone glitter crazy for two years in a row and i am joining the club. i plan on buying a few little pumpkins in white and orange, then head over to michaels to get some of martha’s glitter glue and glitters and having my own little craft day with claire. it will be a nice distraction from her upcoming ct scan, neurosugeon and neurologist appointments on wednesday. plus it will usher in october at our house and i am all about creating an autumn atmosphere in our hot weather. i’ll post pics of the fun tomorrow!
