Men are from Mars...Women are From Venus...

So I've been a little blue lately. Nothing big, just missing Bryant and getting some cabin fever. Bryant's been on night rotations for a week, which means he sleeps all day and then I'm alone at night. Not fun. But I've found some awesome blogs to keep me busy and have been crafting like crazy. I made Emma a hair bow holder that looks fabulous. Which of course means that I needed to make some bows to go on it. But I couldn't just have one bow...she would someday have pigtails and would need one bow for each tail...so I made lots of bows.


Then I found some instructions on how to make a cute little summer dress out of an old T-shirt. Well, I've got plenty of those lying around...still haveing my mommy body. So why not let Emma get some use out of a t-shirt or two? So I made a few changes to the instructions and got an adorable knit dress for this summer! Love it! I left it out on the table for a few days just so I could keep admiring it. I tried to show Emma how cute it was. She seemed to like it as it went straight into her mouth :)

So Cute, right?


Well, Bryant also needs to let of some steam and let his creative urges flow. And since hairbows aren't exactly his thing. He decided to create a human body from the inside out out of...yes, playdough! And not just that. He was going to do it from memory...I shrugged and said ok...not really thinking he would do it, but here it is...still not finished, but getting closer. I will post a final product once it is completed. So thank you Jeff and Katie for the wonderful playdough for Christmas!

So glad you updated! Emma is SO BEAUTIFUL! Of course I may be bias...but she looks so much like you did. I sure hope cassie is having a girl...Then I want a t-shirt just like Emma's.(I can't wear pink)

I love the dress that you made for Emma and the bows. Girls are fun like that. I can't wait for a little girl. Mama's boys are also very fun.

Wow, Bryant. You always go over-the-top. My playdough repertoire consists of bowl, blob and beast.

hahaha, I'm finally making a blog, so I was looking at yours for ideas. I love that Bryant used his play dough well. That is awesome.
