Mila Jane is 9 months old! + {January sponsors}

GAH. It’s like every day she gets older or something.

My tiny girl is already nine months old and she’s the sweetest thing that’s ever walked pooped the earth. She specializes in the snuggling her soft shampoo-scented head right in my neck, adorable nose-crinkle laughs…

And the coolest eye color which has no name, but flecks of gray, brown, blue and green. Is that hazel? I have no idea but I love it.

She is her big brother’s favorite thing ever.

I have no choice but to spend most days chomping on her squishy cheeks. I totally understand why animals eat their young. She is delicious.

May I introduce you to my amazing sponsors who make all this DIY goodness possible, and offer some sweet, sweet deals for all?

Belvedere Designs: Wall Quotes

Confession: I kind of wish I had another baby JUST for the chance to use a sweet little wall quote like this in their nursery. I actually said “awww” out loud when I saw the pic:

But Belvedere Designs does some beautiful non-baby-related vinyl wall quotes too, like this “Family Rules” version:

Such an inexpensive way to make your house feel special, cared-for and set apart. Check out Belvedere Designs at for all their beautiful designs!

Warehouse Fabrics

It’s a fact that if I want to get immersed in something for several hours, all I have to do is click over to Warehouse Fabrics and dream about all the way I’d use their beautiful fabrics. Here are some of the newest that I’m digging. The one on the left reminds me of some VERY expensive to-the-trade-only designer patterns, but at a tiny fraction of those prices.

Compassion Int’l

Compassion International is an advocate for children, to release them from their spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty.

Andy and I have been sponsoring and exchanging notes and gifts with our Compassion kids for *years.* It’s a top-notch organization that does amazing work! (In fact, my “sponsorship” with Compassion always has been – and always will be – unpaid, as a way to support the organization.) Come look into the faces of these kids who need to be sponsored.

Andy has a three-day weekend so we are soaking it up. What’s going on at your place this weekend?

Let's connect


  1. What a cutie! Gosh, have you considered renting her? I would so take her at least until she cries.

  2. aaaaw, mila is ADORABLE!!!! love her!

  3. Since I am forever the wet blanket, I will have to put a damper on those edible cheeks to remind you of the “other” sign you have surly seen…..”Mothers of TEENAGERS know why some animals eat their young”. Enjoy those cheeks now, as you are correct, she is getting older every day and one step closer to the other sign.


    • Oh no, no worries. I had a good long talk with her about how we’re always going to get along and be the best of friends, so that’s all been taken care of.
