Groundhog Day

Groundhog Day was yesterday, you say? Then apparently you haven't seen the movie. Around here we just keep doing the same kind of day until we get it right. But that's really not a bad thing, as our days are, for the most part, quite pleasant.

I know of a little boy who is *this* close to out-right crawling, and will soon be into EVERYTHING that he isn't into already. This same little boy also cut his first two bottom teeth this week...

... likes to hold boxes or books up to his face and laugh...

... wants desperately to take part in anything his big sister is doing...

... and generally charms my pants off whenever he gets the chance. Including the hours of 12, 3, and 6 am. He has also grown (by my measurement) two inches in less than two months, so maybe I can give him a pass on all those middle-of-the-night feedings... maybe.

I also know of a not-so-little girl who still loves to dress up like Cinderella, and sort through my scrap basket...

... and help me with any project at hand. This project would be going through my bottom dresser drawer and saying things like "have I ever worn this pair of fuzzy Santa socks?"

I have also declared my sewing room re-organization complete (post to come) and we are now open for business. First project up: Curious George Napping Pants for my little man. Found this on the remnant pile before Christmas and snatched it up because Amy L.O.V.E.S. Curious George, but realized it would be the perfect fabric to make some comfy pants to change William into when he goes down for naps. I made a similar pair for Amy (of different fabric) back in her napping day and they saw tons of wear.

Lots of baking has been happening as well, as I've made it my personal resolution to keep our family in homemade cookies at all times. Shown above are a variation on a pan cookie, which, with the addition of applesauce and quick-cook oats turned into a very moist and cake-like cookie-bar creation. Yum.

So there you have it. A quick catch-up on our many Groundhog Days this winter. Despite the moments when I might get a bit nutty from the "rinse, repeat" feeling, I really do treasure the chance to soak up all these daily moments, and I wouldn't trade any of it for the world.
