We just got these super adorable wool pants into the shop today. I love that they are hand knit by sweet women in Equador who are paid a fair wage and are able to stay at home with their children. Anyway they are so cute to me. Not quite as cute as the little guy modeling them though.
I love this one, he looks so much like a sweet little puppy dog.
I finally finished it! It only took me two months,but I finished Aislyn's "flower pink dress." I LOVE to sew. Since opening the store and having the baby, time always seems to elude me. I guess I just need to hone my organizational skills and make time for all the things I want to do. Right now I have two other projects in the making. Marley wanted a sailor dress. And since she probably won't think sailor dresses are cool for much longer I thought I'd get right on that. I'm also making Jairus a little button-on short suit out of the same fabric as Marley's dress. I love all things old fashioned. I can't wait to see his cute little knees sticking out below those little shorts, it'll be so cute.
Marley and Townsend have been learning to play a duet. It is a beautiful primary song entitled "Where Love Is." It has been so cool having the kids learning to play the piano. It's something I secretly wish I could do. I know it's never too late, but......finding the time. Anyway I love this song and am so excited for them to perfect this piece.
As many of you may know I have opened a natural baby boutique "Best Loved Baby" with one of my best friends, Sarah Simmons. We sell cloth diapers and accessories, organic children's clothing, natural and organic toys and the like. Business is going really well. This past Saturday we had a booth at the UW Tacoma Sustainable Living Fair. It was so fun and we met so many great people! I love talking with other moms who share my love of all things natural. This picture is of Sarah, Ephraim and I and my wonderful friend Jessica who came along to help out.
The other day I looked over at Jairus and admired him as he intently scribbled on a scrap of paper. As every parent does from time to time, I thought to myself,"What a genius he is, he holds his pencil so well!" Then it hit me....he was using his left hand! I watched him all that day and realized he uses his left hand for everything else too. My little guy is left handed. Crazy. How do you teach a lefty to write anyway?
Thomas' thoughts of course immediately went to the wide world of sports. He thinks Jairus' calling in life is now to be a left handed pitcher. I guess they make a bit of money. Here's hoping the kid loves baseball!
