My birthday is closer to the start of April, but being an accountant causes me to push any celebration until after Tax Day. This year, that delayed celebration occurred this past weekend.
On Saturday, my mother, sister, Ada, and I went to the One of a Kind Show.
(There’s my baby, looking a tad bit like someone just abandoned her under that sign. Anything for a halfway-decent photo, baby girl!).
My mom, sister, and I have been going to the Winter One of a Kind Show for a couple years now. It’s typically held in early December. I had to miss it last year as we were anticipating Ada. However, the Craft Gods heard my cry and, for the first time ever, there was a Spring show! We immediately signed up.
That night, we went to a local restaurant for dinner. There was some mental gymnastics involved in transporting the baby as it was raining (the restaurant was close enough to walk to but would we have to leave the stroller outside? I could put her in the carrier but where would she sit when we got there? Oy!).
The next day, Ada got to see her other set of grandparents as they came to visit for lunch. We ordered pizza and Ada got to show off her skills at rolling over and almost sitting up. Champion!
Later on Sunday I made a new pacifier clip for Ada out of some ribbon from a present so the weekend was sandwiched with crafts. Ignore some of the obvious issues with thread tension that that ribbon is clearly displaying – someday I will learn to use the sewing machine properly! Failing that, I will continue to make kid crafts and tell myself it doesn’t really matter how they look as long as they are functional.
(Look at that fun enamel clip I got on Amazon. I have about 20, so baby girl will be flush with clips for all her tiny belongings).
