More Fun Onesies...

I've had SO much FUN making these onesies for our coming little man, too! He's going to be well suited :) for his first 3 or so months!

I've got a couple more blank onesies to come up with more fun ideas and several birp cloths to get busy on!
Happy Sunday to everyone!!

Caleb's First Onesie

Today, I got busy, found some blank onesies to embroider for Caleb, from Rhys' old clothes, and I finished my first outfit for him today!

I look forward to making more! Onesies, birp cloths, what else can I get into?!?!? :)

I've also posted more on my etsy site if you'd like to see!

Our Days Here...

After a month of being here, Rhys and I have gotten a great and fun schedule to look forward to something different each day! Most mornings consist of a playgroup, where Rhys and I both get to be SOCIAL and PLAY! :) This has been such a ministry to my heart, as I've met wonderful moms who can relate to our current season of life and really encourage me, and I hope to be of encouragement to them, as well! It's been AWESOME!

Rhys is learning how to slide down the slide, and I'm coaching him on how to run back around and climb the steps so that he can slide down again...rather than climb up the slide! :)He likes to turn wheels...Play with anything he can get his hands on...
Hoola Hoop time! and other fun activities...
SWEET Aunt Tami came for a nice, long visit that REALLY helped and encouraged all of us! We LOVE you, Aunt Tami, and we're ready for you be here again...NOW! :) Thank you for making the LONG drive both ways! Whew!!!

And we've made Rhys' room a safe place where we can dump toys, close the door and let him play alone for sometimes over an hour. This is how we found him several times... :) So cute. He would climb into his laundry basket and just sit in there with his toys and play! So content. I am thankful! He's playing in his room right now so that I can blog! :)
This is how I found him another time...not sure that's a good idea. Yikes!
These are our afternoons...AT THE POOL!!!! There's an AWESOME adult pool, kiddie pool and splash pad for FREE on post, so I take Rhys every other afternoon for an hour or longer, just depending on how much time I want to kill out there! :) Tami got to experience it with us. "Tami, the water's a LOT warmer, now!" :) She knows that I do NOT care for cold water or temps!
Rhys didn't care for the pools or the splash pad when we first got here, but I've either forced him to like it because it gives us something to do in the afternoons :) or he's learned to like it! Either way, we BOTH enjoy the pool, now! Yay!!
So, that is literally our days...morning play groups or playing on the outdoor playgrounds before it gets too hot outside, home for lunch and nap time, then, back to the base most afternoons for pool time! I'm enjoying life here! I really praise the Lord for this season. It was challenging, at first, but God is growing us closer to Him through the challenges, and I'm learning a LOT about Him, myself, our family, and we look forward to our future in His hands!

Rhys Trying Out A New Food Group

Rhys is such a stinker! We went to Pizza Hut for dinner last Saturday night with one of Russell's classmates and his wife, and to keep Rhys entertained, I was feeding him off my plate. At one point, I just grabbed the lemon off my water cup and gave it to him to see how he'd respond, and here you go! Please give yourself a 33 second laugh!!

Don't you love the facial gestures!?!? :)
