Toot By The Barrel Full!

Whew, what a morning so far! I like to keep things positive around here but I have to tell ya: this morning has just plain sucked. LOL But that's okay, I know when I'm having a bad day, I can come here and make all of you look at baby pictures with me! :D

I may be a slacker when it comes to finishing Toot's scrapbooks (I figure I'll teach her to scrap when she's older and then she can scrap her baby pictures :) but I am still taking TONS of pictures and figured I would share some with you fine folks since they should be shown somewhere, right?

Toot l-o-v-e-s hats. Not sure where she gets that from though. Must be from her father's side...hmmm... ;) Anyway, I'll find her wearing some random hat she finds:

So one day I find her wearing this hat that obviously no longer fits (she wore it as a newborn). Think that stopped her?! Not my my daughter!

We have packed up the mobile and changing table part of her pack and play. I thought I had put the pieces safely away when one day I noticed her with one of the pipes, twirling it like a baton. I so wish there was still a market for baton twirling...she is a natural although here she looks like she's about to kung fu me with it...

I'm trying to get her started on crafts early. She already loves yarn, just need to teach her to not eat the hook...
And because I only let her play with my glasses when it's cute:

On the creative front, I've got so much I'm dying to show y'all but they're for the Wonderland swap so I can't show it until my partner gets it all! But trust me, there is glitter flying over here! :D

Have a great day today everyone!


  1. I love that she loves to wear hats!!! Neither of my nieces will wear anything on their heads :-( I wasted too much $ on headbands and hats for them when they were babies/toddlers before I figured that out....sigh.

  2. Sorry to hear you were having a bad morning. But thanks for posting the Toot goodness, she is SO very cute! It really does look like she's going to go medieval with that pipe!!! And I think the photo of Toot with the crochet hook is actually her deep in thought about all the lovely things she'd like to eat...oh, I mean crochet!!! I can't wait to see what you've created for the swap. My package is going out this week, and I'm excited (but REALLY nervous) for my partner to get them!!! Hope the rest of your day goes well...Theresa

  3. *hug* I hope the rest of your day gets better Maggi! Love the pics of Toot, she is so cute and funny and what a character! Can't wait for the Wonderland swap!

  13. Maggi darling Toot is so adorable, I love all the hats on her. She has what my mum use to call an eatable face. Glad I looked at a beauty right before going to bed.

    Darling Jane Austen was my second choice...good job. If I get to have tea with her in my imaginary world, I will send you an invite.

    Love & Hugs

  14. Sorry you're having a sucky day Sweet Friend. I can tell you that any time I have a sucky day, I'm heading right over here to look at that sweet Toot! How can you not smile looking at that precious face?!!
