Friday Favorites

Hi, My name is Liz and this is my blog.

Oops, it’s halfway through September and I’ve only written one post this month. Get. It. Together. Let’s move on to this week’s Friday Favorites!

Every week I take Jude to gymnastics class. And every week he gets a little nervous (he is so shy around strangers) and won’t go near the instructors (it’s a mommy and me class so I am with him the whole time). That is until this week. He wouldn’t go on the wedge with the instructor, BUT he told her “no” which I realize sounds strange, but he talked to her! We were both shocked and I’m taking it as a sign he is finally warming up to class! So we will definitely be signing up for the next ten-week session since it only took us seven weeks to get him to look at her. Toddlers are crazy guys.

Today Ezra turns five months old. FIVE. MONTHS. Say what? I cannot believe he’s been here that long and at the same time I can’t believe it’s only been that long, you know? For Jude’s six month birthday I bought him a monogrammed Jellycat puppy from Peekawhoo, so obviously Ezra needs one for his half-birthday next month. Also, his hair suddenly curled (or who knows what it’s doing) yesterday and it still looks like this, I die!

While I’ve been slacking on actually blogging, I’ve been knocking some designs out for other projects! I’ve got some new ideas and can’t wait to get them all in production soon! Also, getting texts like this from clients after sending them a proof pretty much makes my day!

  • Seriously, toddlers are crazy.

    Loved the stuff Stephanie shared! And Noah’s always been pretty shy too, especially around teachers. While he loves school, it took him almost a full year to be comfortable enough to go up to them and tell them he needs to use the potty or if he got hurt! He’s always asking me to “tell them” if I’m around. So yay for Jude… That’s huge!

    • It was such a big moment for me when I realized he actually said no to them! I mean it sounds so strange, but I was so proud of him for actually talking to them! Even if he wasn’t doing what they were saying! :)

    Aww, I am sure Jude will warm up more to the instructors the more you go. I can’t believe Ezra is 5 months old. How in the heck did that happen? Can’t wait to see those projects you’ve been working on. So exciting!! Hope you guys had an amazing weekend.

    • WHERE has the last five months gone? It feels like I just blinked and it’s over! Happy weekend friend!!

  • Connor is the total opposite of Jude. He wants to socialize and talk and not pay attention and do the work. We are working on getting him to pay attention and follow instructions but the bottom line, it’s social hour for him.
