8 & 9 months- a catch up

I have been a bit slack with my blog of late. November & December was rather hectic for the Hillbilly's and I just seem to be coming back into my self and am on the sewing machine when I can.

Anyway enough about that here is The Little One. In my eyes she hasn't changed all that much in the looks department. She is just like Jnr Hillbilly which probably explains all the "...isn't HE beautiful" comments we get. I just nod and agree I mean SHE really is rather gorgeous, who am I to argue.

December 2008 - 8 months old

Still only 2 teeth, but now, not only is she crawling but cruising around the furniture. Still can be rather picky on the food front but has a few firm favourites that we stick to. She has also discovered her voice and is rather fond of using it and using it well (read loudly) but hey she is cute we can forgive her.

January 2009

Hard to believe she will be one soon where has the past year gone. This time last year I was very pregnant and spending a lot of time whale like at the beach. It is funny though as two of the school mums are due in April so they are where I was last year it is funny now that I get to give that commiserating smile as they 'waddle' up to the gates at the end of the day.

Back to work (part time) next month eeek.

Pay it Forward - Sneak Peak

As the title says a sneak peak at my Pay it Forward

So Emma expect your little package in the mail shortly.

p.s Don't look too closely at my sewing ability just remember that I am new to all of this.

This week I am loving

Gordon's G&T.

I don't normally go for this 'alcopop' type drinks but this one is seriously refreshing.

Heaps of ice a wedge of lemon (preferably minus the mint like I have in mine) and away you go.

It sometimes makes Witching Hour that little more bareable.

Give it a go I promise you will like it.

I died

... and went to Jogger's Hell.

Who knew 60 seconds could feel like 2 hours and that 90 seconds could go so quickly.

And while I am whinging who started this friendly hello thing going on between joggers. I can barely breath let alone get out a hello. I tried to smile but I think it was more a grimace just know if you passed the lady walking/jogging this morning that I was trying to be friendly. And same friendly joggers if you see a lady curled up in a ball on the side of the jogging path on Wednesday can you call me an ambulance.

I did it... finally.

Today I faced a fear...sewing buttonholes.

Oh boo hoo Ellie I hear you say so scary. Well for me it was. Being mostly self taught I have two little dresses in my UFO basket (it is a big basket) that needed buttons and buttonholes. So while Jnr and Baby Girl were off at the grandparents and Snr was on Little One duty I faced my fear. I was supposed to be catching up on some sleep but the sewing was calling me.

I can't show you too much of the actual item because it is part of a gift. But I just couldn't not share my victory be it small with blogland.

YAY for me today.

And this last one is another UFO that needed buttons and buttonholes. Not very happy with my button choice here but live and learn I say.
