Is it just me?

Or is there a theme going on here?

I realized this morning when I was reorganizing Gideon's clothes that I may have a slight obsession with stripes and solids. I knew I typically don't like silk screened stuff, but man I guess I'm serious about these stripes and solids.

And somehow I don't think he cares what I put on him. He's irresistible in anything. Just look at him...

Letters on the brain

I've decided I'm going to do a simple collage of "G"'s on Gideon's wall. Thus far, I covered one in mustard yellow yarn similar to these:

And bought a small gold one. I'm debating between mixing and matching a bunch of random "G"'s or having different sized/shaped letters and making them somewhat mono chromatic in shades of gold.

Here are some of my findings:

Yeah, more of this little guy...

I can't help myself, his cuteness is just painful...

Lately he makes the sweetest puppy sounds after he nurses. And baby bear grunts while he sleeps (which often prevent mama bear from sleeping).

My mom left today, sad day. But it was so good to have her here for an extended period of time, sharing every "little" moment. (And she went to work on the sewing machine. Hopefully I'll finish Gideon's nursery before he turns one and post pictures!)

It's also nice to begin to settle into our new life, just the three of us. This is the fulfillment of the dreams that have been deep in my heart for so many years. I am choosing to savor it and thank God from a new place inside of me. Lately I've just felt full of so much gratitude. I think babies do that to ya huh?
