Nathan Goes to the Fair

Our baby is a year and a half today!  *bawl!*  He is getting so big.  We recently took Nathan to the fair for the first time, ate some fair food and saw animals, including kangaroos, cows, and sheep.

Nathan even touched a horse, and he was so sweet and gentle about it.  We also saw airplanes flying overhead, which is one of Nathan's new favorite things to see.  It ended up being a good morning!

Newborn Baby Nathan Layouts!

It is so exciting and fun to start working on newborn baby Nathan layouts!  I am loving the sweet Hello Baby collection from Simple Stories, and these layouts are just the first couple that I plan on making with that line.  My first layout is full of cute baby pictures from the hospital and baby footprints, and I was inspired by Sketches in Thyme sketch 219.   

This layout was inspired by the soft colors and tranquil feel of Blue Fern Studios' mood board, and I used their sweet "newborn" chipboard for my title.

For Nathan's newborn photo shoot I have been working with Simple Stories' The Story of Us collection.  I love the color combination and all of the hearts.  This first layout is based on the September 1st sketch from Stuck?!

And this second layout is based on Stuck?! sketches' September 15th sketch.

My final layout this month is based on Creative Sketches' Sketch 298.  I had a lot of fun making the chalkboard title!

Jesse did another triathlon last weekend and Nathan and I waited for him at the end.  Just look at these two cuties together!

More home improvement

We recently added a glass door and transom window in the archway between our front room and the main living area, both to keep Nathan out of the front room and to create a more quiet space in the front room.  We like it so far!

Baby Giggles

Sorry I haven't been posting much lately!  Here are a couple really cute videos of Nathan.  The first is a video of him loving a birthday card I got,

and here is Nathan in a silly mood just laughing and laughing at the silliest thing!
