A very merry half birthday to Penelope!

This girl is 6 months old today.  I seriously can't believe it.  Didn't she just arrive the other day?

6 Month Penny

I'm doing a monthly photoshoot in the numbered onesies again, and I'm amazed at just how quickly she changes....

And it's been fun to compare her and Phoebe's photos up next to each other.

6 Month P&P

It's crazy how much these girls look alike.  My husband has even failed the "who's who" guessing game a couple of times!  

Happy half birthday, dear Penelope!  You bring such an amazing joy to our lives and we love you to pieces!

A sugary summer

Whoa there - I can't believe that we're already knee deep in summer here.  Not only am I way behind on my blogging, but I don't think I've even read another blog in the past month!  I can attribute that to a couple of things.... 1) My husband has taken over the computer with a new video game.  Ugh.  2) I'm still super addicted to Instagram (emmmylizzzy), and have been using that as my crafty socializing/networking outlet.  3) I guess I've just been busy actually doing and making- instead of reading/writing/editing/planning/browsing.  That's a good thing, right?

Cakes for a graduation.

The kitchen has definitely been bustling because of graduation season.  Here are a couple of graduation cakes I've been making over the past few weeks....

Bunny Party

We've been having a Mooshy Belly Bunny party over here!


I made one for a friend awhile back, and I wanted to make one for Penelope since she prefers to chew on soft, squishy things vs. the hard teething toys.


Well, once Phoebe saw what was in the works, she promptly claimed it for her own.  So that led to mooshy bunny number two.  Then my mom saw the bunnies and immediately put in her request for two more to give as gifts.  So I made two more.  And then we had a party.
