Fabulous Friday

Alright, let's see how long I can keep this up!  Every Friday will be "Fabulous Friday", where I will post about a product I am in love with or try to show of my crafty skills. Or my "crills" if you will.

Today's Fabulous Friday is baby legwarmers!!! Or "babylegs". Yes, I know, why do babies need legwarmers?  Why not?!?!?!

A.  They are super cute
B.  Help with easy diaper changes
C.  They are Uber cute!!!!

Here are some that I have purchased:

But, unless you can find them on a great sale (like those above were) they can be a bit pricey.  Sooooo, I made my own!

Super easy and super fast!  I will post the tutorial later!  And of course a gratuitous baby model shot of another pair I made.

Love babylegs!!!

New Traditions

Well, with a new baby new traditions are bound to start.  One of my favorites has been putting together a yearly family "yearbook".  Just random shots and some professional family photos taken throughout the year.   Here is the one I ordered through Shutterfly.com.

 Gotta love Pinterest for tons of new ideas!  FYI - I am loving Pinterest right now for babies first birthday ideas!

First birthdays are a HUGE deal in Korean culture and I am getting pumped!  I know the babies don't remember much, but I remember going to a lot of first birthdays and it is so much fun and seeing family and friends come together to celebrate a little miracle. We will be incorporating some Korean traditions and hopefully she will have her first hanbok! (Korean traditional dress)  I will post more on this later!  :)
