I was lucky when I was a teenager. I got acne, but it wasn’t too bad, and I never had any scarring from it. I know several people who had pretty bad scarring from their acne, and that’s something that likely will be with you for the rest of your life. I wonder what kind of effective acne scar removal products are on the market and how well they work.

I really want to get a doorbell installed for our front door. Doorbells make it so much easier to hear when someone is at the door, especially when I’m in the back room. It’s kind of hard to hear someone knocking when we’re back there. Plus, if people are like me, they tend to knock lightly rather than hard enough to be heard.

The Smudge Mug

I don’t think I ever shared what I gave Joe for Valentine’s day. It came in a little late, and I was *so* excited to give it to Joe that I had him meet me the afternoon it arrived. You see, the employees at Joe’s museum aren’t allowed to have drinks with open tops at their desks in case anything was to spill, so they all have to use travel mugs.

So, I had one of those custom mugs made. We call it the “Smudge mug”.

That’s the collage that wraps around the mug. I think it turned out so well! And what better way to show off a collection of pictures of Lucy??

Tummy Time Progress

Look who’s a lean, mean head lifting machine!

Now that we know about the torticollis and have been doing Lucy’s exercises, she’s really started lifting her head better. And, tummy time, while still not high up on her list of favorite things to do, doesn’t seem to be as torturous as in the past. Before, she would start wailing after 30 seconds on her belly. This morning, she was on her tummy for 20 minutes before she fell asleep. I’m so proud of her!

My First Sewing Project

I haven’t sewn anything since my high school Home Ec class.

Until yesterday, that is. I made Lucy a taggie blanket — with my mom’s help, of course. 🙂

It really was fairly simple to make. Cutting and sewing the material together was a breeze. The ribbons took a little more time to make sure they were lined up correctly. And, one of the textures I chose was thick so it was a little hard to run the needle over it.

I made an 8×8 taggie because I thought it would be easier for Lucy to handle. It turned out great!

And, it’s been a big hit. Lucy hasn’t put it down voluntarily since yesterday evening. I’ve had to pry it out of her hands at diaper changes and when I put her to bed last night. In fact, right now, she’s clutching it as she snoozes in her bouncer.

It makes me feel so good to see her playing with something that I made for her rather than something I just bought at a store.
