Yay! Tate's crib bedding is finally finished!

Donny Keeps telling me I need to get some hobbies to keep me busy (as if being a mom doesn't) anyway....... I decided to try my hand at sewing. In the past the sewing machine has only brought me stress and frustration. We now are on our way to having a better relationship. I got myself a machine and wanted to make Tate's crib bumper and skirt. It was a big project for my first, but I did it! And love it!

Tate loves to help!

King of his castle. Mostly he likes to pull on it and mess it up but at least it keeps him entertained.

I'm so happy with how everything turned out. I had fun doing it, but I am glad it is done! I think it really highlights the crib. I love this crib so much! It means a lot to me to have something made by my dad and brothers and Donny. It turned out even better than I imagined it. Thanks guys!

I just had to throw in this little gem. He hasn't used the swing in months, but the day I go to put it away he was having so much fun playing in it.

  5. I am a Tate fan! I just want to squeeze him. The crib and bedding look amazing. You're putting me to shame. I need to hurry and make something with my sewing machine so Mom doesn't take it back.
