four...five...

One last week of being four *sniff, sniff*. FIVE seems like such a big number. All of a sudden she seems much older too. Her vocabulary, her mannerisms, the lack of that sweet baby fat, the hints of big girldom just around the corner...someone please share the treasure map to that time machine, will you?"5" is almost out of the toddler/little girl shopping section for crying out loud, but we're fiercely hanging on to those 5Ts a bit longer...after all I'm not much of a fan of the "big girl" styles in most shops. And yes, she's rockin' not one but TWO big bows...I love living in the South!

She has been selected to be the weather girl come Monday so she's been practicing her forecast...
Oh, my she's a hoot! Takes it so seriously with the hand motions. Love her!My "birthday projects" list keeps getting longer and the days shorter so we'll see how many make it to the chopping block, but here's one that I finally crossed off.And another one in the works....I overheard a conversation between my mom and Lance the other day as she helped me work on birthday sewing projects. He said something like, "When I was little, party favors were like...4 stickers, maybe a party blower if you were lucky." He he he...does he not know who he married???! HA! Just kidding! I love that man! But I enjoy the process. I love doing all the crazy planning stuff. If you don't, if it stresses you out, don't do it. Nothing wrong either way.

We have a super fun weekend planned. One of my best friends is getting married and I can't wait to see her walk down the aisle!!! She's going to be such a beautiful bride! This week's orders are going out the door a day early to make room for the festivities. Here's a sneak peek for you, N! I hope your little guy loves his fun hat! {all other orders are designs I've already shared here on the blog, so I'm skipping pics, but they're all shipping out tomorrow-yay!}
Back to my studio dining room table...long night ahead.

My baby will turn 5 in a few months as well...it has gone by so fast. She keeps saying that she will be one whole hand old when she turns 5;)

Your hand embroidery is getting so good Jessica! Can't wait to see how you use it in Grace's outfit! I just realized today that my Emily's 3rd birthday falls on Easter Day. Yes, I am SO behind this year. Guess who is having a bunny theme with an egg hunt? :)

Four to five was a really big jump for Juju too. All these new words and actions...I used to tear up all the time! Six is around the corner for us and I'm still not ready lol.
I can't believe how much she's grown since level 2 @ Gymboree!!

I was going through my daughter's closet to see what would still fit this spring. I came across this Vintage Lucy shirt, and immediately thought of you and the party. You need it. I bet the one that is too little for my daughter would fit your daughter (it is a size 8 but runs small-fit us best when she was a 5). Want me to send it to you?

What etsy shop did you purchase Grace's pillowcase dress from? So adorable!

Julie said...

I love all the party planning, it makes things so much more unique when you do things with thought and care :)
And I agree about the "big kid" clothes, that's why I still sew for them. At least Gymboree clothes still have sweet styles in larger sizes too, I hate all that preteen-looking stuff for little kids!
