We babysat one of my friends little girls today. Charlotte did surprisingly well considering past encounters with babies where she balled the moment Kayu or I touched an infant. She came down the steps and pointed to her exersaucer that we hauled out and said "what's that?" Which by the way is her new favorite phrase. Charlotte was a huge help with baby K. She played peek-a-boo with her, she fetched diapers and wipes, and she even helped hold baby K's bottle during feeding time. Maybe there is hope for the possibility of a sibling in the future. She was very in touch with baby K's needs and when she became fussy, Charlotte noted that the baby was sleepy.
I have seen these patterned onesies on Etsy and I always think to myself "Why would anybody buy those? They would be so easy to make." WRONG. I am going to a baby shower this weekend and thought it would be fun to make some. I think I need to go back to home economics class so I can practice maneuvering around all the curves. Secondly, do you know how difficult it is to sew a tiny piece of clothing without stitching the front and back together? They are complete and they look cute from afar. When my friend opens them at her baby shower, I will just have to make sure she knows that they are made with lots of love. It is the thought that counts, right?

No matter what I do or where I go, I cannot get any privacy without my little shadow tagging along. Today I was in the bathroom and the door came swinging open. My little monster was there glaring at me. I proceeded to use the bathroom and when I was done and flushed the toilet, Charlotte exploded with "Yay!" Apparently she was just as excited about me using the bathroom as we are when she uses the potty.
