Houston, We have a tooth.

Just a few days short of 9 months old, I notice something a little white on the baby's gums. It's true, my big girl is cutting her first tooth! It's hard to see because Ellery doesn't really like me to try to look, but it's there. And I've been calling her "Speed Racer" all morning because of how fast she is crawling now.

I hope to get a picture of the tooth soon, but for now all I have are these really cute pictures of her in this Eeyore costume I bought for her before she was born. I thought it would fit her by Halloween but it's already too snug and short, so I'll have to find another, but at least I got these pictures!

Oops, I did it again, and I hurt my neck.

I think it is apparent after today that I do not mix well with slides. Regular slides, slip and slides, whatever. Slides are bad for me.

I went to two birthday parties today. The first one was very nice. My good friend Christina's baby is two and we had a great time at the park. I acted my age and conversed with my peers. Good McMama.

The second was a duel birthday party for my 7 and 8 year-old-nieces. It was at this inflatable playground place. We had to sign this insurance form and watch this video. One of the things it said is if you are over 6 you must use a mat to use the big slide, this includes adults.

Wait, did you say adults? We can play too? Oh no, I couldn't. I didn't even bring socks. "I brought some extra socks" chimes in my sister-in-law.

Well, all of the other parents would laugh at me.

Then my 12-year-old nephew gets there. I ask him if he is going to slide. "Nah..." he says, sounding disappointed. I really can't let down the nephew. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it!)

Infamous last words, "I'll do it if you'll do it".
So here I go, mat in hand. Up, Up, Up to the top. I get to the top of the slide and realize, "Dude, this thing is STEEP!" Oh well, only one way down. I let out a little squeal and hey this thing is pretty fun! That is until I landed.
Crash! Bam! Splat!
Oh holy crap, what have I done?!?! Neck... hurting.... feeling.... faint.... much pain..... muscles cramping.....

And all of this time I'm thinking Don't' you dare pass out, if you pass out it is going to be embarrassing and you signed a waiver!!!!

So I get some guy named Kevin to massage the cramp out of my neck, and oh goody crisis adverted, again!

And since I already had my socks on I might as well do the obstacle course, the jumping room and the air basketball, right?

I am an idiot. Pass me the icy hot.

My Favorite Thing that I've Ever Made

I just finished and my back is hurting, but I'm really proud of these. I have thing for cow prints anyway, I even have Elle's car seat in a cow print. I'm not sure if I am going to make them for my Etsy store or not, I'm not sure if everyone would like them as much as I do. I kind of have a flamboyant taste in children's clothing. Hehe. Anyway. All I need now is a big red bow!

I had a dream about a bunny the other night. He was a cute bunny eating some lettuce. The whole dream I pushed him around in a shopping cart and fed him lettuce.

That dream is not what this post is about.

I dreamt that I was going out to dinner with my friend Susan and evidently we had a very good friend named Rivers, who looked just like Rivers Cuomo from Weezer, but I think his last name was Smith or something and he was from Chesnee.

So we were going out to dinner and we had Ellery with us and somehow we ended up in this really dirty scary bar. I don't know what was more disturbing about the next part, because we decided to stay there and eat or the fact that they actually had high chairs for the baby. The high chair did have some graffiti and skulls on it, but we stayed anyway. We tried to order some food but all they would serve us were cheese fries.

So I'm sitting there talking to Rivers about how much I like hanging out with him because we both share a love of Weezer and how if Ellery had been a boy she would have been named Rivers, blah blah blah...

All of the sudden sirens started going off and people started yelling, "Oh no! Corrosion of Cannibal Death is here!!!" Corrosion of Cannibal Death was evidently some really horrible metal band that took all patrons of this bar hostage and forced them to drink really bad beer. As I started to look around I noticed these stickers that read "Property of C.O.C.D." and other things like this. We tried to leave but they flung our cheese fries to the wall and put this beer on the table called Star Beer or something like that and forced us to drink, and it was bad. I mean, really bad.

We decided to make a run for it. Just then I was stopped, "Bring forth the baby!" said this really scary looking dude. Then some guy who looked an awful lot like that stoner kid Jason Castro from last season's American Idol came over and was all like "Hey I'm Snoop Dog Number 2 and I'm just going to take the baby for the band to see." And I was freaking out and I was like "Snoop Dog Number 2 just took my baby!"

So Rivers Cuomo Smith took us through a room and we found Ellery sitting in a chair eating some peas or something, and we were able to sneak through the back door. Safety at last.

I woke up and realized that I've been under entirely too much stress lately.

Long Time, No Blog

Oh noes! My blog has gone stale!

But it's not my fault, I promise! Lack of internet, followed by my dad having his 8th heart attack and being in the hospital for 8 days is to blame. Thankfully Dad has no further damage from this scare and is back home now. August 20th I will be a real modern girl as I am getting cable internet at my home.

I also haven't had a chance to create anything in weeks. But I do have some things in the works including- Christmas Stockings (with FREE Monogramming), Trick or Treat Bags (with FREE monogramming!), Personalized pony tail holders, and a little something for the South Carolina Street Team Creative Challenge, all I can tell you about that is that the theme is Fall.
So here's me getting back on my proverbial horse.

Fun with Photoshop, Mcmama style.
