It's true, I have been having an itch to sew, craft, change things in my house, etc. Lucky for me Crew had to have a stocking for his first Christmas so I decided to make one for each of us. I love how cheap you can make stuff for! I made three stockings for the price you can buy one in a store. Plus I still have enough fabric to make more for future kids so they will match. I wanted stockings with a classic but slightly modern look. I played around with some fabrics and this is what I got!

The holidays are even more exciting with our little munchkin around! I love that we have had so much time to spend as a family and to focus on the things that really matter in this life. We hope all our friends and loved ones had wonderful holidays as well. Here are our highlights.
Crew had his first visit to Temple Square. He was mesmerized by all the lights.

We are so happy Crew is here to add to our family pictures this year! The photographer/friend who has taken our family pictures the past couple years has had a lot going on recently and hasn't been doing much photography so we went a different route. We loved how they turned out! Unfortunately we couldn't include Harli, she is so sad :(
Crew is such a smiley, happy boy at home when it is just mommy and daddy with him but when he gets into public with strange people around he is a tough cookie to crack. I'll be honest...he freaked out a couple times. However, we were still able to get a few smiles from him. I LOVE his many expressions, even his scowl and terrified face. I thought I would share some of our favorites.

Words can't describe how grateful I am for this little family of mine. I love all the precious moments we have together and I know I am blessed to have them forever, no matter what comes our way in this life. My boys truly warm my heart and make me feel like the richest girl in the world.

Oh how I love my baby boy! We blessed Crew at the end of July and it was a wonderful day, to say the least. We want to thank all our family and friends who joined us in celebrating our son's special day. The day passed by so fast and I wasn't able to get pictures of all the people who came to give support but I did get lots of pictures of my little stud in his suit. I normally don't love the bow tie look but I think my handsome Cruiser pulled it off quite well so I had to do a mini DIY photo shoot to capture the memories.

I know that every parent says this but my baby really is growing so fast! I have never taken so many pictures in my life. I find myself trying to document almost everyday with pictures in fear I will forget some of these precious moments. Crew is 9 weeks old now and is looking more and more like a little boy rather than a newborn baby. Words can't explain how blessed I feel to have this little guy as my son. I could stare at him all day and never get tired of it. I am extremely grateful I have the opportunity to stay at home with him everyday. It is the best job in the world! Here are some pictures of Crew during his second month of life, weeks 4-9.
