Make it a carrot day!

Yesterday Blake tried carrots for the first time. He wasn't to sure on it at first as most babies are when trying a new food. He ended up eating half the jar so I could only assume that he liked them! I do not plan on using store bought jar food I plan on Making my own. So be sure to check out my experience in making baby food and some recipes!

Sharks and Nascar

This past weekend my family and I went to the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. My daughter loves anything that has to do with Sea life or Animals. We later went to Joanns so i could pick up a new sticky mat for my Cricut and some fabric for and up and coming project! Afterwards we went to the Motor Speedway to watch the Nascar truck series with our free tickets we got from our local Smiths supermarket! What a deal so we were sure to use them! It was a quite loud so we got little man some ear muffs! He didn't seem to mind them at all and just sat and watched the races. We ate highly overpriced greasy food and watched for about and hour. On our way home we finished the night with an ice cream. Here are a few pictures of our day.

Just a few things...

Here are some of my creations. I'm still very new at sewing. I received a sewing machine 2 years ago at Christmas from my mother but never took it out until this past Spring while I was pregnant with my son. I decided I really wanted to make him a blanket and other made by mom items! It was a bit tricky sewing with minky and from all the reading i did pre-blanket, everyone said minky was NOT a fun fabric to work with, let alone do your first blanket ever with! I was up for the challenge! It turned out pretty good.
The wipe case I just hot glued some fabric over a regular case then glued some ribbon around it. I just loved hot it turned out. The diaper/case bag I used this wonderful tutorial. I had a lot of minky fabric left so when I came across a taggie blanket tutorial at Chica and Jo I wanted to make one asap! It was very easy to make. Be sure to stop and visit Chica and Jo they have such awesome tutorials and wonderful ideas!! I think my next taggie blanket I will add some crinkle paper inside to give it a bit of noise.
