Ok, I know I've been saying it a lottt but I have been doing some serious catching up on editing Violet videos and Violet photos. So she has informed me that unless I always want to be at least a month behind, then she needs to dominate the bloggy blog for awhile. Yes a MONTH behind... All the "current" photos I post are from over a month ago. And skipping photos is not an option...


This is from when Violet was a wee two months old!

sneaky lil girl


MOMMY LOVES ME


WAIT MOM LOOK OVER THERE A SEC


YESSS I GOT IN A GOOD HAIR PULL


I'M SOWWY MOMMY

it was like christmas in july

Ok, it's officially "blast from the past" time... It's hard to believe that last year we didn't even know Violet would be Violet!




Mike and I find out the gender of our baby.... I bet you're dying to know how this ends. Luckily I included a part 2.



whoa there screaming girls


I was just thinking about how bizarre it is that every now and again, an at least somewhat talented but basically ordinary person comes along who is suddenly treated like some sort of semi-deity, inciting RIOTS and FITS of hyperventilation and SOBBING.

IT'S JUST WEIRD.

I am finally catching up on some video editing. Mike and I have been recording lots, but the files have been just sitting on my computer.

WARNING: Get yer kleenex box out because this one is emotional.
WARNING #2: Don't worry- although it may seem like there will be nudity there is not. You're welcome.
WARNING #3: I know I look like crap. Well guess what- I just GAVE BIRTH, Y'ALL.
WARNING #4: Babies grow up so fast! She's so so tiny here... awwww...

have a seat


Babies these days... they just grow up so fast. Sitting at the table like a big girl...




...and sleeping at the table like a baby.


EXTREME CLOSE UP: Resting her head on her little pinkie, of course.

He is risen

Let's just say that this week is a dark time... No, not because of the random snow, or because Violet decided to have multiple days of waking up every two hours throughout the night, or because the special edition Adele on vinyl was sold out on Record Store Day....

IT'S BECAUSE GARY BUSEY GOT FIRED FROM THE CELEBRITY APPRENTICE.

Seriously, what do I have to look forward to on Sunday nights now? Let me leave you with this...


straight outta the D


I'M TRYING OUT A NEW STYLE


AND A NEW ATTITUDE.


THIS IS A BABY YOU AIN'T GONNA MESS WITH.


*SIGH* MOM SAYS I'M HER ADORABLE LIL THUG... IT KINDA RUINS MY CRED.

turn over a new leaf


Spring is kinda like here and stuff! This means gardening, cleaning out the extra junk in the house, and crafting- wheeee. I know I can just get more done during daylight, so it's as if there are magically extra hours in the day.



NEW PROJECT: I bought a sewing machine! And baby clothes patterns! And adorable fabric! Next up- find out if I have the patience to pull this project off!

Anywho, happy spring to all of you. Now go out in the snow and pick a daffodil!

mommy dearest


Since I have both shown an interest in the Twilight series and birthed a child, I am now part of this illustrious clan.

Ok, so now that I'm a mom, I tend to notice more when people use the word "mom" as an adjective to mean BAD. I mean, most of society has come around to agree that it is offensive to gay people to say "that's gay" when they mean "that's dumb"... yet it's ok to be like EEWWW LOOK AT THOSE MOM JEANS, OOOH LOOK THAT PERSON HAS SUCH A MOM HAIRCUT, etc. Well, as far as I'm concerned-


THESE are what mom jeans look like


and THIS is what I consider a mom haircut. IN YO FACE, SOCIETY. I SURE TOLD YOU.



This is pretty funny though...

conked out


After the families left town we realized we were wiped out.


That's my snuggly baby.


Don't mind us... just a couple of drama queens.


Seriously we couldn't wake this baby up for anything... she was so funned out. Let's get a close up on that sweet face:


Adorable yes, but can we change the angle? There's something you need to see:


THAT LITTLE BIT OF TOP GUM SHOWING OMGEEEEE it's too cute I can't look directly at it for more than a couple seconds at a time. This is why I call her "gummy bear" all the time. Also because she's sweet. And cute. And yummy. And sometimes sticky.

my name is karen

and here you will find things that i make and see.
