Baby Hat

Baby O has some adorable pajamas that have elephants on them, but they didn't have a hat to match.  So, I made one to go with them!  The outfit was so cute, I decided he should wear it home from the hospital.  Of course, both the pj's and the hat are way too small now. . .

First I traced a hat we already had

I cut a rectangle piece for the rim

Pinned then sewed the hat part

Pinned and sewed the rim part

Pinned the rim part to the main part and sewed it up

Ta-Da!  A hat!

Now for the elephant

Stitching the patch on

All Done!

As you can see, I was still very pregnant in this picture!  In fact, I finished the hat the night before Baby O was born.  I guess he knew we were ready for him once his little outfit was complete!

A little while ago my parents and sister came down to go on a quick backpacking trip with us into the Sky Lakes Wilderness.  We just hiked two and a half miles into the Twin Heavenly Lakes, stayed the night and hiked back out the next morning.

It rained on us and Baby O was having a hard time for a little while, but other than that, it was a great trip!  It's always nice to get out into nature for a little while . . .

Workin' Hard (or Hardly Workin')

In June (I know, I'm a little behind the times!) we took a trip to Bend for a conference for Clint's work.  It was so nice to get away for a few days and stay at a nice resort and have a good, relaxing time!

He really did enjoy it!
We had to stop and fish

We walked around while Clint fished

We are definitely looking forward to the conference next year!

Rollin' Along!

Last week, Baby O rolled over for the first time!  Clint was with O in the living room after work while I was making dinner.  I heard Clint encouraging Baby to reach for his toy and the next thing I heard was Clint calling for me to hurry and come see Baby O rolling over.  Of course, I just missed it, but I did snap a couple pictures of the aftermath.

Since then, Baby has rolled over a few more times, and I have been lucky enough to witness it!

Temple Square Photo Shoot

While we were in Utah, we went to Temple Square and had a grand old time!  Before we left, we took some pictures in front of the Temple, and I think some turned out really well. . .
