Well, I can’t believe I have been in the world for an entire month! Wow, time sure has gone by fast since I never let mommy and daddy have any alone time. I came into the world on October 5th and it was awesome. All my grandparents were there for my arrival and daddy was such a good coach for mommy. I had a cone-head in the beginning but as you can see that has gone away. I can now say I am a pretty handsome little baby (well that’s what all the ladies tell me). I’ve decided that I like it best when I am held and I love to look around and observe everything I can. Mommy and GG (Grandma Kathy) have taken me on some fun outings. I’ve gone to the mall, a pumpkin patch and traveled over to Yakima to spend time with GG and Papa. Mommy even took me to a pumpkin carving party and then decided to stick me in a pumpkin. I didn’t complain until my diaper butt got stuck and mommy wasn’t sure if she could get me out.
I love my family so much and I can’t wait to tell you what happens in my second month of life. I know we have lots of fun things planned. I can’t wait to meet my uncles at Thanksgiving! Well, I’ve gotta go and make mommy change me and then eat and then poop again. Oh, my life is awesome!

Adding individual pieces to my home that give it a little bit of character is important to me. I like my home to represent ME and not just big box stores. Since my style is more eclectic, I am always looking for inexpensive ways to change things up. I came up with the most simple craft that is quick, easy and inexpensive. Visiting my local Goodwill, I picked up a few white coffee cups for only $.25 each (what a steal). With some paint and creativity, I added a simple design to the cups. Voila, I turned plain into pretty in under a minute. These items will also make amazing hostess gifts for all the Holiday parties coming up. It will be fun to put a personalized touch on the cups that I give away. There is nothing better than giving a gift that has your own added special flare.
Have a fantastic weekend and don’t forget to treat yourself to something special.
