pink and red

Pin It A happy (belated) Thanksgiving from our family!

I haven't been sleeping much, but we are doing really well. :)  Thank you to those who have been checking on us!

Baby girl turns seven weeks tomorrow (wow).  She and I have big plans to hit JoAnn's and get a good deal on batting (hopefully there's some left!)

Lately she's working on her smiling (and Mommy's working on capturing it).



(and you can see how her eating every 2 1/2 hours around the clock is giving her a nice little double chin).

She's oh so snuggly...


and does the cutest little stretches.


(I swear, if anything gets me to have a third baby, it will be these adorable newborn stretches)

I've done a little bit of sewing (it's taken me about a week/block). ;)

for Scarlet's bedding set

This will be for Scarlet's bedding set.  (It's Moda's Sophie collection, paired with chenille)

for Scarlet's bedding set

My goal is for Steiger and Scarlet both to get new bed sets for Christmas... hopefully I make it!

And here's our recipe for pink salad (aka "Overnight Cranberry Salad")


1 lb. fresh cranberries
2-3 apples
1/2 lb. miniature marshmallows
1 c. sugar
2 c. freshly whipped cream

Core apples (can peel, but we don't).  Chop apples and cranberries well (I pulse them in a food processor).  Add marshmallows and sugar (I use less sugar than it calls for).  Mix together and let it sit overnight.  Next day, fold in the whipped cream... Delicious (and so easy!)

She is adorable!!! And you are going to laugh. My bf has made the exact same quilt with the exact same charms. The top is pieced (but 2 pink and 2 red blocks) and waiting to be quilted in her basement. What are the chances? You both have excellent taste :)

Love her! If you ever need me to fly that way just to babysit...I am IN!

I love the chenille with the yummpy!

Oh, she's so sweet! You're right, those newborn stretches are too adorable. And at least you're getting SOME sewing in ... : )

I am amazed at how you can have a 7 week old, a 2 year old and STILL manage to sew! You rock!

Aren't snuggly babies just the best? Her quilt is almost as pretty as she is!

Dana Gaffney said...

Ahhh, she's beautiful. I've been watching for an update post. I figured your family is too happy, content and busy to even think about blogging. Yes, those stretches are wonderful. Thanks.

What a little muffin!--I know just what you mean about those little stretches they are just the sweetest, aren't they!?! I was just thinking about you guys the other day--glad to hear everything is going great. =)

She is so amazingly adorable!!!

Karen said...

Hi Tracey! I didn't see this post until just now as I haven't been following along with Google Reader....too time consuming.

Little Scarlet is adorable and has really grown! Amazing changes. I love those little baby stretches too and the cuddling! Enjoy.

Hugs, Karen
