Emily's 1st tooth.

Last wednesday Emily cut her 1st tooth. OUCH!Her little gums are currently working on tooth #2 . We think. I can't believe we've had a week of tears, tylenol, cold cloths and of course sleepless nights. All this just for 1 tooth. And we are only just beginning. All Emily wants is her mommy.

This is what happens when Mommy puts Emily down. The poor child has mastered the reaching of her arms.

The tooth is still too small to get a picture of. But I try.

Of all weeks to start a new project I of course picked this past week. I was recently given some fabric and thought it would be fun to make something. I didn't care too much for this fabric and for a practice run decided to make Maddie her 1st nightgown. Having to deal with Emily and her teeth it took me much longer than expected.

I cut the pattern on day 1. Cut the fabric on day 2. Pinned the fabric together on day 3. Went to our ward campout on day 4. Sewed on day 5. Went to church on day 6. Finished on day 7. Despite having to deal with pins, scissors and a sewing machine out a full week it was fun to do.

As a youth I recieved my Young Women Medallion. I am currently working on my Young Women Leader Medallion. I am going to sew matching 4th of July outfits for the kids as one of my 10 hour projects. Am I crazy???

Maddie loves her nightgown. Despite a few mishaps we will chalk up to learning experienes I think it turned out pretty well. I have some cute Strawberry Shortcake fabric. She wants another nightgown made out of it.

You are crazy to sew with 3 kids period! But yes, I'd say crazy to sew 4th of July outfits. But I commend you for taking it on. You are one Super MoM! Cute night gown. I have a sewing machine, but I'm not much of a sewer (anymore).
I've lucked out as far as teething. Neither kid has really even shown much discomfort at all. Noah is getting his last 2 teeth right now and then he's done until his 2 yr. old molars. :)
