New Clothes for Meredith

I don't have the time to sit and work on quilts like I'd like to. When I quilt I like to have a good 4 or 5 hours to just sit and work on a quilt. Yah, I don't have that right now with Meredith :)

I was just itching to sew something so I decided to make a dress for Meredith. The pattern comes with a pants pattern too and since it is still cold around here I thought that would be good under the dress. I'm finally done. Took me longer than I thought but the outfit turned out pretty cute! Now if'she'd just leave a a bow in her hair it would be perfect :)

I have fabric for two more dresses and another pair of pants. Need to get on them :)

Ten Months Old!

Meredith is now 10 months old. She has 4 teeth, which are hilarious right now as one upper tooth came in way before the other. She's doing more real crawling but still prefers to just pull herself around. Meredith can now pull herself up on things to stand. She especially loves standing at the piano and making noise with the keys. I'm finding it harder to get anything done as she follows me all over and tries to get into things :) Her favorite thing is to come over and stand by me while I'm using my laptop and try to either push the on/off button or pull the cord out. Such a stinker!

This and That

Elizabeth had her second recital a few weeks ago. She played a song called "Skating". She is really loving her piano lessons and her teacher Ms. Kristine. I love that she loves it!

Meredith is now pulling herself up on everything she possibly can.  
Unfortunately, the kitchen chairs are not so stable. Yesterday she pulled one over on herself while on the tile. Luckily her diapered butt landed first then her head so it wasn't as bad as it could have been. Still scared us both pretty good.

This last Friday was gorgeous out and it just so happened my brother was in town. So we all went to the zoo! It's been a looong time since I've taken the kids, we hadn't seen any of the changes yet. They redid the monkey enclosure and added lions to Africa. It was all pretty neat, and fun to see new stuff! Was also very nice to spend the day with my brother.

Getting tall!

Meredith liked the orangutans.
