I have this unique disease where I have a tendency to get really excited about starting a new project of some sort so I go all out and start on it then I get close to being finished and I never complete it. It just sits in a closet somewhere. I don't know what it is? I think it might be because I usually get frustrated and then just burnt out. When I finished this little dress for Maci in two days I was really excited! I actually finished a project that I started (and it wasn't a year later). The only problem now is that I made it in the hopes that Maci would be able to wear it, but now it seems to have turned out a little too big. I might just have to find some more fabric that I have just lying around (I'm an compulsive fabric buyer also) and make up another one so she can wear it sooner. This was one of the easiest patterns I've worked with. Yay! I finally followed through with something!

I can't believe I didn't even realize what was going on last night when Maci woke up throughout the night crying. She was wrapped up with her face in her blanket and wasn't waiting on me to come in and get her, (usually she's standing up trying to break the crib down) she was just laying there helplessly. For some reason I was too tired to coherently come up with the proper diagnosis of what was wrong with my baby. I just thought "oh, maybe she's going through a growth spurt?" because she has been sleeping through the night really good for quite some time now and I haven't had any problems with her wanting to wake up and eat every three hours. I would just go in and hold her for a few minutes and eventually she would calm down so I put her back down to sleep. It wasn't until I went to give her a snack today that I found the root cause of her strange sleeping pattern...it was her FIRST TOOTH! I was giving her a piece of cereal bar and to myself I said out loud "eating would be easier if you had some teeth" and then that's when she bit down on my finger to let me know she does in fact have a tooth. It isn't in all the way, it has just cut through so it'll be awhile until most people can actually see it. I called Josh when I found it and he asked if I took a picture. Do you think she's going to let me hold her mouth open and take a picture, NO! So instead I have a couple of her in her new princess jammies she wore last night. Maybe I can get a picture of the tooth some other time, just don't get your hopes up. This girl has a mind of her own, she really only likes to do what she wants to do.

I had a dream last night after I accidentally stumbled upon the Pottery Barn Kids website when I was supposed to be finishing an assignment online. Here is what the inspired dream consisted of, after eight months of Maci having a room, it actually looked like a room and the bedding above was the center of the inspiration for the cute little masterpiece I had come up with. One of the only things different was her crib no longer featured the cute fairy and paisley bumper because it would help her to be able to climb out her bed easier. I'm just not ready to find her asleep on the floor yet. Anyways her room was decked out in pink and fairy perfection. I had a cute little shelf displaying letters for her name that I bought months ago and haven't done anything with. I had made some cute little fairy outfits to display and everything. Then all of a sudden I woke up and realized her room is still undecorated and very plain to me. Maybe one day I can go to sleep and not have to dream about her room, but actually be happy that my dream came true....
