Maybe I should eat more Swedish meatballs...

This little conversation happened over Christmas break while we were in California, on the way home from a favorite Mexican restaurant:

Sophie: Mommy's making a baby out of food in her tummy.

Elliott: That's right. Mommy eats food and then makes it into a baby.

Sophie: She's making a baby out of Mexican food? (laughter) Do you want the baby to be Mexican?

Little Swedish Meatball, due August 14.

My little angel

I had big plans to make all the children new pajamas to open on Christmas Eve, but didn't quite get to Emma's nightgown. Sophie's did get made though, and I think she looks like a little Victorian doll, especially with these sock curlers in her hair. I've seen the idea a few places now, and decided to try it in the girls' hair. Works like a dream. The sock curlers make the curls wide enough and low enough on the girls hair that they don't look like Shirley Temple on crack!
The nightgown pattern is Simplicity 3586. It was pretty easy if you have basic sewing and pattern reading experience.
