back in july, jay and mo were nice enough to invite us to their home in the catskills for the weekend. their place is an old schoolhouse on a nice piece of land with a pond and fire pit (naturally). it was a perfect first overnight trip for us as a family and a great way to spend hazel's two month birthday
well here we are. not only is today the 5th anniversary of me starting this little blog, but this also happens to be my 1000th post (i may have coordinated that in a little ocd moment, but who wouldn't?!) so much has happened in my life in the last five years and i'm lucky to have it all documented here in this one place. i've traveled from russia, to nicaragua, to thailand and explored the lower east coast to the upper west coast and everything in between. i've stayed out late, gone to bed early, and spent entire days DIYing. i got married, had a baby, visited family and lost a few people who i loved very much. my very first post in 2009 was a polaroid of me lying outside, so it seems fitting to post this pic of chris and hazel for my 1000th post. wonder what picture i'll have to share in another five years...
just realized i forgot to post about the DIY felt numbers i've been making for hazel!
not sure if you noticed them in her one, two and three month photos, but instead of doing the normal baby pic with a sticker on her belly, i decided to make a little felt number i could take hazel's picture with each month.
i thought it'd be cute to see her interacting with the numbers as she grows older, and at the end of the year we'll have a cute set of photos AND numbers she can play with and use when she learns to count.
plus it gives me a little built in DIY project each month
