October 16, 2008

Oz joined us last Thursday morning, so we were busy all weekend falling in love. Crafts are put away and posting will be light for a little while. I'll try to pop in occasionally to say hello.

Congratulations on such a beautiful little guy! (Blog-stalker, checking in!)

Chelsea said...

Look at all that hair! What a beautiful boy. Many congratulations and blessings.

Julie said...

Congrats!!! Both my boys came out with LOTS of hair too and my eldest I didn't cut till he was 3 and went down his back almost to his waist in blonde beautiful ringlets. No curls now...and his middle name is Oscar.

My second son in 15 months and he has hair past his shoulders... not sure when we will cut his... it is so cute!

Ashlee Dunlap said...

Congratulations! He's a little doll! Many long nights and happy days ahead! Good luck!

Yarnmomma said...

Jill, He is such a cutie... It was so quiet here as I am a avid blog follower of yours so I came to the assumption their was a baby on the way...

What a gorgeous doll...You get some R&R and I think I can say we all love that you just give us a window look into your amazing home life and the craftiness you are gifted with.

Amy said...

Yay! Congrats to you on becoming a mommy! What a head of hair he has!
Best wishes!

Jo said...

He is SO beautiful. Enjoy falling in love...

Cheryl said...

Congratulations on this beautiful boy. What a wonderful name, wonderful head of hair, and blankie. Our family jokingly refers to the swaddling as making a "baby burrito" :) Enjoy all these special moments, Mama! xoxo

*sunchips* said...

Congrats! He looks so cozy and content in that gorgeous moses basket.
Motherhood is the greatest crafting skill to have!

Angela said...

Oh! He's so beautiful! And you are so talented! Congratulations! And, you've been tagged but don't worry about it. I think all can agree new mommies get a pass on blog tag. I really just wanted to share your awesome blog.
Blessing,
Angela

Congratulations, Jill! I swear your children are your best creations yet. Thanking for keeping me company with all your crafty goodness these 6 months since my youngest was born - all those 3 am feedings! Rest now, craft later. I packed up my sewing machine a week before little Kate arrived - lasted less than 2 months before I was back making stuff. All the best to your lovely family as you adjust and enjoy Oscar!
