Here We Go!!!

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me!  My choice.  For you.  This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.

2. What I create will be just for you.

3. It’ll be done this year (althought it may be a while before it’s done).

4. You have no clue what it’s going to be.  It may be a story.  It may be poetry or maybe even some creation I haven’t even invented yet.  I may draw or paint something.  I may bake you something and mail it to you.  Who knows?  Not you, that’s for sure!

5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch?

Oh, the catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog.  The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me!

(I got this idea from one of my online mama friends, Ellie, at

I took Elyse to get her pictures taken last week to celebrate her turning 6 months old.  I am so excited with how well they turned out!  She was in a great mood, and the photographer did a wonderful job.  Here’s a preview of some of the pictures.  Feel free to click the link below that says ‘View All Images’ to see a slideshow of all of the pictures.

6 Months Old February 4, 2009

Filed under: Elyse — hjhadams @ 2:38 pm

Today Elyse turns 6 months old.  I seriously cannot believe how fast the time is flying by.

We went to see her doctor today and she is doing wonderfully.  Here are the stats:

Weight:  16 lbs 12 oz  (50th percentile)
Height:  27 1/2 inches  (90th percentile)

I forgot to ask the exact head measurement, but she mentioned it was around the 75th percentile.

She is doing really well on the solids…so far we’ve tried green beans, carrots, squash, sweet potatoes, applesauce, pears, banana, avocado, peaches and mango.  She gagged a bit with the green beans the first time around, but now she seems to enjoy it all.  I have also enjoyed making it all for her.  It’s actually very easy!

Anyways, her development is coming along right on track, and Dr. Young says she’s doing wonderfully!
