My Obsession

This is what happens when I have a girl.
Yep, Those are all hairbows. The band is flat elastic with a piece of velcro on it. All of the bows have velcro on the back so I can just change them out to match whatever Ellie is wearing. So far she has 28 bows. She can almost wear a different one for every day of the month. The saddest thing is I make at least 2 or 3 a week depending on what she is wearing. The nice thing about the velcro is as her head grows she can still wear the bows so they don't go to waste. Since her head is so tiny right now she wouldn't be able to wear them for much longer if I didn't do them this way.
I am constantly on the lookout for cute ribbon. Now I have to find outfits that match all of them lol.

My other obsession is becoming this blog. I really am enjoying it. I use it as a chance to wind down at the end of the day. I update it when all of the kids are in bed (The last few nights we've been able to get everyone down by 9:30. I'm working on pushing the babies bedtime back to 9:00 and then hopefully 8:30 with Ben. That would be heaven) But this is my time to reflect on the day and remind myself how wonderful my children and husband are.
I love all of the comments!! Please feel free to comment often! Even if it's just to say hi :)

I love the bow Ellie's wearing with the dress! SO CUTE. I've made a few bows for the girls with some alligator clips (more for Autumn & Heidi). I still have more ribbon so I really should make some more. :)

How's the sleeping going?? And the nursing??
