January 27th 2010 according to my chart is when P entered my life. Although I didn't know about her until February 10th.
Exactly 9 months later on October 27th 2010 P entered this world.
This is one of my favorite pictures. Even though I'm crying and look like death. She came out of me and they handed her to me immediately. I was amazed at how clean she was. I know I've said that 100 times. I guess that's what happens when you're overdue. This was our first time meeting! Best moment of my life.
And today, January 27th 2011 She is 3 months old! She has been with me an entire year now. I can't believe it!
She has changed so much! (click to make bigger)
My sweet, sweet girl..who kept me up all night last night.

Trying on her new bow I made her.
Bows I made!
I'm so boring! We never do much but eat, play, sleep, and I make random crap while she is sleeping. I love spending my days with my lady. I would be the saddest girl ever if I had to work. I can't imagine ever imagine leaving her every day! This is the most important job I will ever have and I LOVE IT.

This weekend I did a little redecorating with the help of Jody. We (well she) made new pillows for my couch and front room chairs. We had such a good time at Hobby Lobby picking out new fabrics and getting ideas. We also went to Michael's, Marshalls, Bed, Bath, and Beyond, and last but not least Goodwill (to pick up some old ugly frames - you'll see what for). I didn't spend that much and with a few new decorative items and pillows it gave my house the little face lift that I wanted. You saw the befores of my living room a couple posts ago...Here it is now. OH and the curtains on the left are pulled because P is sleeping in that pack and play at the moment.
I loved the dining room during the holidays but I was getting tired of the table decor.
I'm not quite sure what I want to do with it yet but this is it as of right now.
I love P's wild Eric Carle bathroom. I didn't really do much in here except by those little colorful frames ($1 spot at Michael's! And they are actually really cute) and the little bright jars (Hobby Lobby) for q-tips.
I went to Goodwill this weekend to find some ugly old frames that I could spray paint, take apart and make into bow holders. They came out so cute.
That last picture is sideways and I am too lazy to mess with it.
A girl from my mom group asked me to make her a tutu this weekend as well. I made it a little different than the one I made for P. This time I used elastic and ribbon and I doubled the tulle. It came out so cute. I almost wanted to keep it! I bought more tulle to make P another one though :)
So if anyone would like me to make them a tutu or bow holder let me know (you can email me firstname.lastname@example.org). I also made some little hair bows awhile back if anyone is interested!
We also picked out new flooring for our kitchen/dining room, entrance way and all the bathrooms. I hope we can get it put in very soon. I HATE our cheap ass floors that came with the house.
Anyway that was my weekend. What did you all do?

I'll give you a hint...
How freaking exciting! If you haven't read the back story on these dolls, go read it. Our American Girl dolls came today that my mom had bought us for Christmas. They were back ordered this long! She bought each of them a cute little outfit too. The one in the red is for me and the blue is for P. I am so excited for P to be big enough to play with them and for us to go the AG store and buy cute crap for our overpriced dolls! It only took about 20 years to finally get the doll I asked for forever. LOL! They came in these cute little outfits too.
And guess what Mom? The first thing I did was take her hair down and play with it. Some things never change...
I have been obsessed with Amazon.com lately. The Amazon Mom thing is awesome. I love free, fast shipping! Yesterday on livingsocial.com they had $20 amazon gift cards for $10 so Dustin and I both scooped one up! I also got a $10 off Amazon mom purchase in Baby Talk yesterday! I think I will use it for those swim diapers! I love saving money! Ever since we decided to have a baby I've been a coupon whore. I cut them every Sunday and we make our shopping list. Dustin checks out all the coupon sites all the time and we learned at Target you can double up coupons and save even more money! I save money on our every day stuff and buy fun crap for P! Today, I received some of the clothes that I had ordered from Children's Place. They are so cute and for less than $30 I bought her a ton of stuff for next year!
I always talk about shopping. I need to go to shopping addicts anonymous. But at least I always shop around for the best deals! I had been eyeing this ipod player for P's room. I couldn't really justify spending a ton of money on it though. We have two other ipod players but they are OLD and they don't even charge the newer ipods so that was a problem. I searched for it on Amazon and ended up finding it for about $30 cheaper than anywhere else. They sell some opened, brand new products for like half off. I was excited about that. P will love it, it lights up and changes colors!
I have also been trying to find a little jewelry holder thing to put her tiny little bows in. I hadn't found anything I liked until the other day while shopping with Jody. I found this cute little jewelry tree with birds on it. I love birds, owls, etc. The only problem was it was black so it didn't match her room. Jody suggested that I spray paint it. So I picked out a nice pink called ballet slipper and have been working on painting it. I keep getting runs in it so I've been sanding and painting for days. Hopefully it is done now. I will post a picture later.

Yes, I'm already thinking about summer and can not wait to spend my days at the pool again this year. But this time with my little lady! I found these swim diapers on another blog and loved them. I have got to have them. I don't want to buy swim diapers so these reusable ones will be perfect.
