Carma's Nursery

Carma is named after my maternal Grandma with the same name.

These are some pictures of my Grandma that I have to hang up in Carma's room.

My grandma made lots of nine patch quilts, so I had wanted to make something for Carma to represent that.  I found this urban glorified nine patch pattern that I really liked and I just made it match the curtains I had already made for this bedroom.

The tradition is that I piece my baby a quilt and my mom quilts and binds it for me.

When I found out we were having a girl we had already decided we would name a girl after my Grandma.  I got really sentimental and I remembered making these stuffed elephants with my grandma when I was around 12.  It turns out my mom still had the pattern so she sent it to me and I made Carma some of her own elephants.

After taking the pictures this morning Zephyr wanted to read books to Carma on the floor.

Napping in mommy and papi's bed.

First time using her bassinet ( she has been sleeping in our bed at night, and pretty much gets held for her naps)

Snuggling with Zephyr in bed.

Actually opening her eyes!

Prairie really likes to swaddle Carma and this morning she used her favorite blanket to do it.

Biggest sister and littlest sister.

Halloween Recap

Our family got really into Avatar the Last Airbender the animated show earlier this year.  Infact we decided on our costumes back in May, and have been growing Zephyr's hair since then for his costume.  He got really tired of his hair hanging down in his face.

The above picture is the characters from the show

Prairie as Toph

Zephyr as Sokka ( we did shave the sides of his head, his hair is just so dark, it is hard to tell in these pictures)

Autumn as Katara (I broke the necklace pendant when I was trying to thread it, thank goodness for super glue)

 Toph, Katara and Sokka

They have a lot of fun together

Zephyr's First Day of Preschool

Zephyr is doing a preschool through Provo High School.  The only problem with the preschool is it limited schedule.  It starts in October and only runs until Thanksgiving and then has a 3 month break, and runs in March and April.  Oh well, it is a great price, and it is a great preschool.  Zephyr is going with two other neighbor kids, which will be great for carpooling.  We took on of the boys today for the first day.

Zephyr with his name tag.  Also the high school student that was passing out the name tags is a teenager that lives in our neighborhood and has babysat him before, so that was really exciting.

Zephyr is such my buddy.  it was a little hard to drop him off.  It is a little weird to not have any kids at home, but our kitchen is a DISASTER so I can get that cleaned up while he is gone.  He was really excited, and I am glad that he was excited.  This is a big deal for him.
