Many of you have already "placed orders" with me for baby gifts. For those of you who have not, I guess this is my official "Open for business" posting. My pricing for friends is pretty dang good, however I am hesitant to post it online. So, if you are in the market for a cute handemade baby gift, shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave a comment and I would love to make it for you. As a reminder, here are some of the things that I can do for you.

Emerson had her first airplane flight over the weekend. We flew to Oregon to surprise Steve's grandparents. They have never met Emerson and have only seen me once at our wedding 3 years ago. We flew in with Steve's parents and his younger brother Scott. His grandparents knew that Steve's parents were coming, but had no idea about us or Scott. Needless to say they were really surprised. It was wonderful.
I have been so nervous about this weekend because of the long flight and also dealing with Emy's schedule and the two-hour time difference. Let me just tell you that Emerson was a ROCKSTAR. She slept the majority of the flights there and home and stayed relatively on schedule. Of course, she stayed on "Texas" time so she was waking up at 5:30am in Oregon, but that is okay with me because she fell right back into schedule when we got home.
She only had one real breakdown while we were there and that was during the last 15 minutes of a 5-hour car drive from Portland to Coos Bay. She really wanted to get out of that car. We all really wanted to get out of that car. Can you imagine 5 adults, a baby and a TON of luggage crammed into a minivan for 5 hours? It was the ultimate road-trip experience.
The weekend was a great time with family and I am so thankful that Emerson was there. Everyone really enjoyed her. Of course, she won't remember it, but we have some great pictures of her with family. I will post the pictures in the weekly recap.

So, I think I can officially announce that Emerson is crawling. The reason for my hesitation is that it is slower than I expected. I guess when I envisioned Emy starting to crawl, she would go from nothing to light speed instantly. I have no idea where I got this notion.
Anyways, in the past three days she has spent most of her time on all fours and has only ended up on her tummy a couple times. Normally she crawls across the room on all fours and then plops down on her tummy at the very end of her destination, as if to say, "Okay, I'm here". When she is crawling, she is concentrating so hard. It is like she knows that the all-fours route is the correct way and she is trying so hard to stick with it. Everyday she gets a little better. Yesterday she figured out how to back up.
So, I guess I should be thankful that she is slow and steady for the time being. I am sure that in a few short days or weeks lightning speed will commence.

It is absolutely blowing my mind that my husband and I have started to discuss Emerson's first birthday party! What?!?! How the heck did that happen? Wasn't she just born?
If this is the way time passes as a parent, she will be starting kindergarten tomorrow and graduating high school in about a week. Awesome.

It is time for everyone's favorite time of the week (or at least I assume that because it is my favorite time). Here is our week in pictures.
Oooo, she has Toby's ball. She is IN LOVE with Toby's ball. I swear it is the toy that is going to propel her into actual crawling.
Playing with mommy
A pile of burp cloth orders from ebay:)
Some onesie orders
Made this sweet set for a friend who just had a girl.
Sorry this is sideways...it is for a friend who is obviously having a boy.
I am also working on some new stuff in addition to a couple of gifts (I can't show you those because they have not been recieved yet and I know these girls check the blog from time-to-time)
Have a great weekend!
