We got to keep Monkey overnight Sunday - I love a sleepover with her! Unfortunately all of the spaghetti and garlic toast gave her a tummy ache and she was up at 3am! After a little lovin' and some gas drops she was ready to go back to bed until Grandpa got up for work. I am NOT a morning person but he is, so he always gets up in the morning with her when she sleeps over. He truly enjoys their alone time together.
Once I got up I got started on fixing up this vintage doll highchair I bout her at a flea market in San Diego a few months back. I was feeling pretty good about actually finishing this project! I had gotten Bryanna's Madame Alexander doll down for Monkey to play with on Sunday night and now she had a highchair to put her in.
She looks very sweet and maternal here in this picture, but trust me that's not the case at all! Poor dolly was drug across the floor by her arm, her leg and by the hem of her dress most of the time. The rest of the time there was some tossing and throwing of poor dolly. Bryanna has decided after seeing this that Monkey is NOT ready to have another baby in the house!
I was on a roll today!!!!!! After getting the highchair finished, and while Monkey napped I made this super cute door hanger. Everyone in our house uses the door from the garage to come into the house. That door is super noisey and slams on it's own when you come in. And of course it is right down the hall from where Monkey naps. So when anyone comes in (and doesn't take the time to hold the door until it closes softly) the noise wakes her up . Used to be when I heard someone approaching the door I would run like crazy to warn them that she was napping. Then I hung a recycled flyer bag on the door with a note that said "Baby Sleeping". That bag has now seen better days and quite frankly never was that attractive! So I had this plain, wooden door hanger and these cute little mouse stickers in my studio and now we have a cute door hanger to warn everyone when Monkey is sleeping.
It's not until you start to write a journal entry of what you've been up to for the past few days that you realize how hum-drum your life really is. Thanks for bearing with me as I rambled on.
