And now there are three

Meet our beautiful number three

I would've never believed you could fall in love this many times!

But I just can't stop myself from staring endlessly at those teeny tiny feet

Or touching his own little mane of dark brown hair

And gazing back at those big, blue, curious (and still with a hint of a deer in the headlight) baby eyes

And, oh, those perfect little lips!!

Apparently, I'm not the only one head over heals with this little guy...

Sienna is pretty sure HER baby came out of mommy's tummy last Sunday.

Whatever you do, do not try to tell her any different!

Baby Sebastian was born April 17th at 5:35am after 2 days of labor

That's right, 2 full days!!!
(They say your labors are supposed to get quicker the more you have... riiiight!)

He was our biggest nugget at 6 lbs 13 oz

My wonderful husband had a full week off work this time to help us get used to our new family of five, which was a dream come true for me in more ways than one! But it turns out that 2 days of labor and 3 kids under the age of 3 is tiring for Daddy too....

I came down stairs after a shower to this picture perfect babysitter :)

When I woke him up he was completely disoriented and had no clue how long he'd been out for.... oh, thank goodness for guardian angels....

and for all three of my precious babies!

Peep a boo undies

Whether we actually eat them or not, you can't deny that nothing gets us in the mood for Easter treats like seeing yummy little Peeps

But I'd say more importantly nothings says yummy like seeing one on this cute little bottom!

I'm so glad I finally got around to making these sneaky little undies!

I just love everything about them:
The springy yellow colors, the subtle surprise you may or may never see, and of course, I can't get enough of the down right punniness of the whole thing!!

So here's a little sneak peep
(oh, I'm dying over here!)

at this quick and easy tutorial to spice up your Easter outfit.

Wanna try?

Here's what you need:
  • Plain panties
  • Felt
  • Embroidery thread and needle
  • One cute little tush to pull this all off

Here's all you do:

Step 1: Trace and cut out a peep onto your felt

Dana from Made has a nice little template I borrowed for her peep garland here that you can use.

Step 2: Stitch two dotty eyes and a little peep nose

You can also use a fabric pen or paint to draw on the face, but I'm on a limited craft access with not all of our boxes unpacked just yet, so I stitched them with some embroidery thread I had in my sewing box.

Step 3: Pin the peepster onto the back of you panties

Step 4: Stitch it on!

Since the felt won't fray, I thought it was cute to give it a visible straight stitch along the edge, but you can applique it with a zig zag or even hand stitch with the embroidery thread.

And there you have it!!

Some perfectly Easter undies to keep hidden under your dress for the great hunt

But be careful....

you'll never know when they might pop out to say

Look who's here....

My! brand! spanking! new! camera!

Hello you little Rebel T2i, welcome to the family!

Since your arrival (19 hours and 52 minutes ago), I've been dedicating every spare moment I can to playing with you and getting to know all the yummy details about you...

And my oh my, you are one intricate little fellow.

Some might say I'm a little in over my head here...

And I would be the first to agree...

Yes, in addition to whatever else I am these days, I certainly am quite in over my head in LOVE with this bundle of joy!
