I'm still here

I have not finished my glitter house yet. It still needs to be glittered and I haven't gone to the craft store to get more glitter. Honestly, it hasn't been a priority, it's been sitting on top of my armoire waiting for me to finish it. I see it every day gathering dust and say tomorrow I'll finish it. And day by day it gets shoved back on my to-do-list along with a hundred other things. And the reason I can't finish it is because of this cute little culpritOh how I love this child but never have I had someone so attached to me as she has been. My house has literally gone into disarray even as I write this post I feel a little guilty, that this is not really important right now and that so much needs to be done. But I know that it's been a while since I've posted so I thought I'd take some time to catch everyone up. Sadie is almost seven months, she's teething, just starting to sit up, she loves to look at herself in the mirror, she won't let me out of her sight and rarely lets anyone else hold her. I can barely put her down for five minutes or she starts crying and not just any cry, I can usually tune out crying pretty well, but her cry is more of a scream and sends shivers up my spine. I have no idea what the neighbors must think and honestly am surprised CPS has not been called because of the noise coming from my I know this is just a short time but it feels like it will never end. She is truly such a joy to our family and is a very happy child, but rarely do the nursery workers at our church get to see that side of her. Sorry guys:) Nap times and bed time are my favorite part of the day and it feels like I'm sprinting from room to room just to get a few things done before she gets up, all along the rest of the kids are following behind undoing everything I've just cleaned up. There are some rooms that don't even get touched for weeks, I literally close the doors and say clean! Out of sight, out of mind. And then at night after she goes to bed I clock out for the day and just want to crash on the couch, ignoring the massive load of dishes that are waiting for me or the piles of laundry that need to be folded. And this to shall pass, so be patient with me I will get the crafts posted but don't be surprised if it takes me a while. I have also added something pretty fun to my to-do-list, or maybe I'm the only one who thinks it's fun. I bought this at a little antique store for a steal and am super excited about it.Oh I have big plans for this little baby, I want to turn it into a little sweet shoppe/bakery. I got the inspiration from Turkey feathers blog you should check it out, just click on dollhouse bakery under Categories on the left side of her page and you can see all the amazing things she's made for her little bakery. And unashamedly, yes this is my dollhouse.hee hee I will post pics of the renovations as I go, meanwhile I am planning Tatum's 7th birthday party. We are having the party this Saturday, we're doing a strawberry themed party. Let me tell you I have been thinking of hundreds of things I can do with strawberries. I love planning parties and this has been a lot of fun for me. I promise to take a bunch of pics.
