a fun crafternoon

My friend Hjordi came over today and we had a fun crafternoon. (I couldn't resist...)

The kids were supposed to be playing Legos, but they couldn't resist the piles of fabric. (See little A's head in the bottom right corner?) It was pretty much a free for all and so much fun.

and a coffee cozy.
Hjordi made a super cute one with pearl + metal buttons.

My daughter, who is 16 1/2 months old, took her first steps tonight. I can not tell you how cute she is + how relieved I am that she is finally starting to walk. LOTS of cheering going on here. I am sure that all our neighbors heard, but it's only one day that your baby starts to walk!

Now little A will get into even more mischief. Better warn the little boys.

Woohoo for your late little walker! And woohoo to you for not totally freaking out about it. These days if baby doesn't do everything right on time, everyone worries so. I didn't walk until I was 17 months old. And I never crawled. (Hey -- I was perfectly happy to sit with a little toy or book (aka project) in my lap -- just like now!) I'm not a world famous person with super powers, but I think I turned out ok. ;-) Love your little doll quilt in progress!
