This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

Bibs and Bradley

I have been needing to make some new (and bigger) bibs for Brad now that he is making bigger messes. There was a cute and easy idea I saw to use hand towels for bibs. So I kinda did my own spin on it and used a washcloth instead. I bought a pack of 9 green cloths and proceeded to cut out the neck swoop from each one. So far I have finished 4 and I think they turned out adorable! I added an applique on each one so that it wouldn't just look like a plain washcloth strapped around his neck. I tried out different ways to bind the cut edge, and different materials for ties. I have more ideas for the 5 that are left!

I haven't used one yet, but I'm sure they will work out perfect. His other ones are just way too small!

Today the three of us attended a memorial service for my friend Merrie's father. He passed away last month so we paid our respects to his remaining family. Merrie recently moved and has been busy but we are catching up once again and planning another family date night together. Her and her husband also have a one year old so it works out well.

While I was at the service, my mother informed me that our dear friend Sybil (88) passed away this morning unexpectedly. She lives down the street from where I grew up, and I have known her basically my whole life. She was one of my mom's best friends, and she went over there every single morning for coffee and chit chat (two of our favorite things). I used to stop by every morning after work, but after having Bradley I could only come when time would allow. She got to meet Brad a few times and enjoyed holding him. I was planning on bringing him back over after the weather cooled off. She will be very missed but we know that she is in a better place and lived a long and happy life. Her service will be Wednesday.

On a happier note, I will leave you with some kissable pics of my baby from today:
