Did I Mention...?

Baby Cash is still not here...
I believe that would make him 5 days overdue.
My sister has tried everything in the book.
No luck.
And it's like 100 degrees in Texas.
I just want to see him.
I'm sure she does, too.
And I want her to snuggle him up in these:

My sister really liked this crib bedding set, so I used some leftovers from that and pulled a few other fun fabrics from my stash to make this one.
I think it's about 30x30"
Lots of AMH prints, some Joel Dewberry, Amy Butler, Michael Miller, Patti Henderson, and even a little Laura Gunn.

And then I wanted a more subdued, sleepy quilt, so I just grabbed a bunch of already cut 5" squares in blues from my seemingly never-shrinking pile of squares.
I love patchwork.
Simple quilts.
I whipped them up in a hurry so my mom could take them with her on the plane.

Yeah, they're cute and stuff, but they'd look WAY cuter with a baby in them!!


Willow is a computer wizard.
That's right- wizard.
This pic was taken quite a long time ago, but maybe she was a computer whiz then...?

Don't believe me?
For example:
She can scroll, she can double click, and she can 'poof' applications off the menu bar like nobody's business.
She can navigate YouTube.
And by navigate I mean find her favorite videos to watch.
Such as this and this.
And watch them.
And replay them.
And even pause them.
She's eerily good at it.
I don't know how she does it.
I think she just scrolls until she finds what she's looking for.

She can also run Photo Booth like it's her job.
Seriously, pictures 180-371 are all of Willow.
That's 189 snapshots and 2 videos.
They are all hilarious.
She even knows how to use the effects.
These are just a few of my faves:

I have no clue how she knows to put your hands up. She's never been on a roller coaster in her life.

The Warhol-esque pics- I love the tongue sticking out...

Her face cracks me up in this one; she found a new effect and she likes.

And this is just too funny. She obviously thinks she's the bomb. And she is.

Oh, and please disregard my trashed fabric storage/studio/dumping ground in the background.
After I saw these pictures it was immediately remedied.

Anyways my point is...
however funny this is, it also scares the crap out of me.
So much so that the hubby and I decided to password protect her out of the computer.
Just in case you missed that:
We had to password protect our 2 1/2 year old child from using the Mac...
See what I mean? It's scary!

That's not even the funniest part.
No, that would be when she stole my phone the very next morning while I was still sleeping and used it to update my facebook status to 'WTF'.
Not. Even. Kidding.
You think she was trying to tell us something?
Yeah, I think so.
Needless to say, I would never ever post that. Ever.
And thank goodness Drew caught it only about 30 mins after she did it so I could fix it.
Little Twerp.


Oh, and a few days later while I was putting away laundry or something super-fun like that,
I heard the storm door slam shut.
Not good.
That means there's been a security breech.
By the time I got outside
-I'm talking maybe 10 seconds-
I found Willow
stripped naked,
covered in chocolate syrup from head to toe,
flashing our poor old neighbor who was innocently mowing the lawn,
while sticking her tongue out.

I obviously avoided any eye-contact with elderly Mr. James as I swooped my charming daughter back inside.
He probably thinks we're heathens.
And he might not be too far off...

Happy Friday to you all!


  1. Maybe Willow can teach her Great Grandma Ruthie how to navigate the computer!

  2. Thanks for sharing these stories, Madi. I can't tell you how much I look forward to seeing what Willow has been up to lately!! :)

  3. that was hilarious. i had to read most of your post out loud to my husband. we also have a 2-1/2 year old and it sounds like she and willow share a good bit of the same spirit.


I love me some comments! Thanks!
