Project: Baby Stats...check!

I've actually had this project done for a was getting around to taking pictures of it that took me so long.

I couldn't find the kind of frames that I really wanted for this, so I settled with using 2 separate frames.  I still think it looks cute.
On to the next pinterest project...

Jett's ABC's

Personally, my favorite part of the whole video is when he says "W"  Oh my goodness.  I could just eat him right up!

Baby names...for the baby we're NOT having!

I loved naming my babies.  Uh, I mean, we loved naming our babies.  That is, Mike and I.  Or Mike loved okaying the names I chose?  or something. 
Anyway, I love baby names, and I'm always thinking of what I would name another baby if we somehow got pregnant. 
I ask Mike for his input on the subject, thinking he'll come up with names I've never thought of and he just looks at me and shakes his head.  He knows I'm hopeless.  I just can't help myself, though.  The poor guy has to deal with ridiculousness on a daily basis.  He loves me anyway.
So as of now, my favorite boy name is Cash and my girl name is Sailor. 
Just thought you might like to know.
Or maybe not, but there it is. 

ps. It's okay to feel sorry for Mike.  I do.

Pinterest = My creativity

I have a hard time being creative.  I always have.  I can't just look at 3 completely separate items that have nothing to do with each other and think Oh I could totally make something out of these things that will completely change my life...unlike some ridiculously creative people, who shall remain nameless.   But pinterest.  Oh pinterest, how I love you.

I've always wanted to do something with my kiddos newborn pictures and their stats, but didn't really know how to go about it.  I've thought about putting shadow boxes together with hospital bracelets and homecoming outfits and pictures, but really?   No.  Too much work just finding all those things.  You know the "safe place" we put things when we never want to part with them?  Yeah, I'd love to find mine.

So I came across this sweet stats poster and went to work making one for each of the kids.  Here's how they came out:

I would really love to find a frame with 2 8x10 for the stats and a 4x6 or 5x7 underneath for their baby picture.  If not, I'll just put the picture in a separate frame.  I think I'm going to hang them in our hallway.  I really love how they turned out!
