Eden Has a TOOTH!

Yes - Its true... Eden has cut her first tooth. Josh has made fun of me for getting so excited about her first tooth, but I have been known to get excited about the small milestones! Okay - so the picture doesn't do it justice... but here's what I was able to get:)

Speaking of milestones.... Eden had therapy tonight and her therapist had all great things to say about her progress. She was rolling all over the place, curious about all kinds of toys, talking up a storm, and even sat by herself for a few seconds. We were even talking today about the steps before crawling (though I realize that may be a ways off right now, but I'm still hopeful that it won't be to long from now). She said that often kids will focus on one area of development at a time and we agreed that Eden's "area of development" right now is definitely her vocals! She LOVES to talk... though I'm not quite sure yet where she got this from???

Two nights in a row... this is how our last bottle went... Kate and Avery must have worn Eden out!

And since Its been a while since I did a little promoting of my ETSY shop, I'd though I'd take a chance to update a few new items:) The first photo are little envelopes made from magazine pages (there are blank cards on the inside). The second ones are the first of many (hopefully) Christmas cards that will go up in my shop. I also have some Halloween ones but I haven't taken pictures of them yet. You'd think I'd get my holidays in the right order... And the last ones are made from some adorable paper I found on clearance at Target (don't you just love a Target clearance item!).

I am so glad fall is here too! The temperature has dropped here in Raleigh and its beginning to finally feel like fall... I can't wait to drink me a Starbucks pumpkin spice latte!!!! Fall makes me think of craft fairs and craft fairs make me really happy! So I found one last weekend that was so much fun (though it was WAY too hot for me and two pregnant women and two kids!). I hope to sell in a few craft fairs this year, but we'll see... Its pretty sad how much I daydream about crafting...

Well, that's all for tonight. We've got a few playdates this week, so maybe I'll have picture of that... or something else fun to post soon.

I have also included a link to the right of our new shutterfly website. I finally broke down and ordered photos from birth until now:) I've needed to do this for a while and since I spent $50 at Archivers, I got 50 free photos:) And I got 50 free photos just for signing up. I had so many promotions that by the time I checked out with 200 photos, an 8 x 10 and a collage poster, I only paid $12! Now I can't wait to get them and start on her scrapbook:) Anyways - I added the photos to a website for sharing. Let me know if you have any trouble viewing the pictures.
