Most of my pride has to do with my child. She is turning out splendidly. Either she is wonderful in spite of how we raise her . . . or we are doing something very, very right. She is so polite - always saying thank you and you're welcome (even in conversations with herself). She is sweet and generous with her kisses and hugs. She can do 3 years and up puzzles by herself, and has the attention span of a yogi. And at her worst, she says "Hit!" to communicate that she is mad and would like to hit something . . . but she doesn't. At least, that is the phase we are in currently.

In more material realms, I am very proud of the Halloween costume that I made for Davie. She was the belle of the Haunt the Zoo. Seriously, it was SOOO crowded there. So many cute little princesses and fairies . . . but everyone commented on my adorable little spider. That was most likely because of the adorable little face that was inside the costume. Either way, it makes a mother proud.

Can I hire you to make my kid a costume next year?! That is awesome! I love it that she wasn't one of the millions of princesses. :)

Hate to be technical, but don't spiders have 8 legs? :-)

Haha Meredith! I thought the exact same thing when I saw the little model in the costume book. But trust me, I saw one little baby with four legs added on the back and it wasn't nearly as cute. I guess her feet are supposed to be invisible, and her arms are supposed to blend in with the first pair of legs.
