the toys

i don't know why grant has to be better than me at everything. well almost everything. actually it's more patience than anything else. i don't like crafts that take a long time. when i sewed those stuffed pyramids, i didn't even measure the triangles to make sure they were all the same size. and then i ended up sewing one of them half way inside out. ha. grant on the other hand makes those beautiful teething rings that are sanded to perfection. they take him forever too. but it all works out in the end, and really it's pry a good thing. i think we do rub off on each other a bit. i mean, what if we were both perfectionists? or both extremely impatient? it guess it keeps things more interesting. i really should remember all this positivity i'm having right now. especially when i watch him measure something 50 times.

I love the way you guys compliment each other. Maybe I love it so much because I feel like Boyd and I are so much like you guys, at least in the project sense.

I love these little toys for baby. You have done so much to prepare. It's so sweet. This is one lucky girl.

I think I really need one of those teething rings when i have baby #2!

those teething rings really are beautiful. i'm sure he loves creating something for his little girl. you will both be so great i already know it!

these last two months are so fun and exciting. i know the uncomfortable jabs start to take their toll but over all i love these months. the anticipation starts to kill me. soon you'll be holding her thinking i don't remember my life without.

I adore these little toys. The teething rings still blow me away.

I just had a thought. Have you made a mini pretty blossom for Baby Girl? You should have her wear one on her way home from the hospital! Then you should have her model the ones in your shop. She'd be a great seller! :)
