...rare moments...

The toddler is napping upstairs & the baby is napping on the floor beside me.  There is no laundry to do, no floors to vacuum, no dinner to prepare.

It's a once a year occurrence.  Our family is on vacation this week with my mom, stepdad, brother & sister-in-law.  We're at an amazing house in Pebble Beach and with the abundance of hands to hold baby Gabby & extra bodies to run with Jeremy, I have had some time to do...nothing important.


I got to read some friends' blogs & realized how long it has been since I posted anything!  Since my last post our family has grown by one sweet girl.  Baby Gabby Girl (so nicknamed by her big brother) took a hold of our hearts on June 1st.  It has been amazing to see how she has changed our family & the tenderness that her brother shows her melts my heart.  I love to hear him talking to her, and often find him holding her hand or stroking her head while he sits close and tells her secrets.  He can make her smile like crazy & she does not take her eyes off of that kid if he's around.  It is going to be such a sweet relationship & I am so excited to see it grow.
Big brother meets his baby for the first time.

What does all of this have to do with WeeWants?  Well, needless to say, blankets have taken a bit of a backseat to the new life changes that we've been adjusting to the last 2 months.

My plan is to have my Etsy shop back open by the end of August.  I'll be ready to start taking orders for all of those fall babies (or presents for the summer babies, since they didn't need blankets when they were born)!

Make sure to "like" WeeWants on Facebook to stay tuned for updates about the shop & a reopening sale!

...Until then...I hope you have some time to do nothing today!

Shower #1 (of 3)

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of throwing a baby shower for one of my closest friends.  She is welcoming a baby girl in less than a month (at the point of the shower there were about 2 months before baby). 

The shower was a great success.  Her mother in law was willing to host it at her home & took the table decorating to the next level, there was a great team working to get food & other decorations together... It was beautiful! 






We had a great time together eating & talking and then were able to spend some time encouraging my friend and praying for her. 

Then of course came the presents...lots & lots of pink things!  She is going to have one of the best little girls around!  

And if you are wondering about a blanket (since that is what most of the posts are about)...I made one...it was really cute.  I'm going to blame my baby brain on the fact that I didn't take a picture of it.  Hopefully when little N gets here, we will be able to have a picture of her with her blanket.  For now, her big brother is enjoying it while mommy is trying to keep it away from him!  

I cannot wait for shower #2 next weekend for another one of my great friends!

...up and running!

The shop is OPEN!  Check out the items that have been added to the shop for 2012! 

I don't know about any of you, but within my group of friends, there are going to be at least 10 babies born this year...and that only takes us til JUNE! 

Time to start thinking about what you want to get for these babies & mommies to welcome their little one. 

Visit the Etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/WeeWants or e-mail me at weewants@gmail.com to place your order!  I am SO happy to do custom orders, so don't be afraid to ask!

...entering a busy, busy time...

I realize that it's been a really long time since I blogged and feel like I have some explaining to do...

At the beginning of October my husband and I found out that we are expecting baby #2!  So, needless to say, for October & November I was wiped out.  Taking care of a toddler & being pregnant is no joke.  Not much work got done...but it needed to because...

On December 7th WeeWants will be a vendor at the Appel & Frank Holiday Boutique in San Francisco.  I have been sewing during every nap time, after Jeremy goes to bed & any other chance I get!  Hopefully I have plenty of stock to take with me!  I am one of two vendors that will be selling anything related to babies at this event...so it should be a great evening! 

Check out this link to a story about the boutique: http://m.examiner.com/exSanFrancisco/pm_75724/contentdetail.htm?contentguid=BdQ3KHw4

WeeWants had a great photoshoot with Lem Malabuyo and he captured some great images of a few of my favorite wee ones with a sampling of the blankets I will have at the boutique.








...bring on the holidays!  It's going to be busy, but everything will be worth it!

little surprises

I love little surprises.  Most of the time.  

This little surprise came the other night in the form of a Facebook Notification.  It's the little things.  

Dana Todd from DMT Photography did a photo shoot with her new (adorable) nephew a couple of weeks ago.  She wrapped him up in a WeeWants and tagged me in all of the pictures.  She took great pictures that day (and takes great pictures every other day) and I am so happy to have been a part of this captured moment!  

Here are some of the great images from her shoot!



Thank you Dana!

Slacking.

So, I was doing great with my goal of blogging every day, and then this weekend happened. 

That's my only excuse. 

Monday was the only day I worked on anything WeeWants related.  I had a meeting about WeeWants being sold at a boutique on that day.  I had to figure out pricing and get back to them...so hopefully by the end of this week I will know!  So exciting!

I also, finally, sewed Jeremy a new blanket.  But, I don't have pictures of it yet. And to be quite honest, the real reason I sewed it was to show to the boutique.  

So, when I'm not slacking, and by slacking I guess that means playing with my son & keeping the house looking like it's kind of clean...I will sit back down at the sewing machine and get going!

Dancing, flying & freaking out!

Jeremy has always loved music.  And the moment those little legs could support his upper body he'd bounce and dance every time he heard music.
Now that he's super mobile, he loves to dance.  His version of dancing may be different from yours, but it's dancing none-the-less. 
This weekend we went to the LA area for a family party.  Jeremy was a hit.  His outfit got many comments & his moves made his the ladies melt.
Blurry...but definitely captured the adorable outfit.  Thanks E-Marie Designs for the bowtie!

Jeremy dancing with one of the DJ's at the party.  There is a better video, I just don't have it yet.  

Today, we flew home.  Jeremy was great on both flights.  I think a lot of it had to do with the fact my mom was on the flight with us.  And that we completely wore the poor guy out so he wanted to do a lot of sitting still.  I was probably more stressed about the flights than I needed to be.  We survived.
Relaxing after a long jog around the terminal pre-flight.

Tonight, I am freaking out a little because I have a meeting about WeeWants tomorrow.  I have a bunch of samples of car seat blankets, but no cot blankets to show.  So, tomorrow (before 3) I need to find the time to: clean my house, shop for groceries, play with my son, and sew a blanket.  I know it's all going to get done...if I get enough sleep.
With that being said, I'm going to bed.
