Is it Halloween yet?

Ok, I don't really want Halloween to be here already, but I did just finish this Halloween project. This is Chess's trick-or-treat bag. I am really proud of it because I created it all on my own! No tutorials or anything. I dreamed it up right out of my own head (after browsing online and not finding anything I liked). There's a first time for everything, right?

This is the first time I've every hand-embroidered something. I drew the letters with a fabric pencil, then just stitched them. I think it turned out whimsical and cute.

11 Months Old

Here she is standing by herself!

St. Patrick's Day

To start off the day, Chess had her first dentist appointment! I got a flier for this great pediatric dentist that does free check-ups for babies under one. Chess really loved the dentist and didn't cry at all while she examined her and brushed her teeth.

My dad's brother, Jim, and his family came to visit from Chicago. Here are few pictures of our get-together.

All We Got

A few weeks ago, Georgia had a big snow. Just a few miles down the road there were inches and inches of the white stuff. But our yard barely got anything except a wet slush. So here is a picture of Chess in her first "snow."

Maybe next year.

Crawling Footage

This is from a few weeks ago, but I thought Chess's Utah grandparents would want to see her crawling. This was right before bed, so she is a little fussy. Don't turn the volume up too loud b/c I make a loud noise at the end, and it might scare you.
