Busy days

We've been a bunch of busy bees lately.
This weekend was the start of cookie baking season. Mom baked 7 different kinds in two days. Lots of taste testing was in order of course :)
And Finn has been busier than ever. He started cruising the other day, so nothing is safe at all. We have a morning ritual of removing everything from the coffee table and every other low surface downstairs before Finn gets up and motoring. Then after bedtime we put everything back where it came from. And I think he's trying to say bear. When he's shown his teddy bear Mesquite he goes "Bah, bah, bah, bahr". It's pretty adorable.
As for me, I've been sewing up a storm. My cousing had (yet) another girl last week, so I made up a set of matching blankie, burp cloth and bib. It's turned out very cute, except for the bib which I think I'll have another go at. I also picked up some cuddly fleece SUPER cheap and I've already made a soaker for Finn and I have another soaker and a pair of sweatpants ready to go under the needle after he goes to bed. I think I'll be able to squeeze one more soaker out of it too. Not a bad deal for $2.50 :P I think after the holidays I may start a shop on Etsy for my plush creations as well as my diapering and baby supplies. It's something to think about anyways. It could take up the time between cold weather time and gardening time in the spring. I'm looking forward to starting that garden. Nothing big, just enough space to grow some tomatoes, onions and peppers. Something to get our feet wet with anyways. I haven't planted anything since I was a wee one, jabbing carrot seeds down into the ground next to my grandpa. It'll be nice to show Finn how things grow too. It'll especially be nice to get him outside again after being cooped up in the house all winter. I'm not sure how much he's going to enjoy being contained with his new found mobility. We may all be in for a bumpy ride.

In store for tomorrow:
Hand turkeys!!!
