The 8 Month Adventures of Miss P

Ok, does anyone out there know how to slow time down?! Seriously?
My baby girl just turned 9 months old! How is that possible?
I’ve even started thinking about her first birthday (never too early, right?) which is CRAZY! 
On that note, here is a recap of Miss P’s 8 month adventures. 
Monthly photo shoot as always! 
Two new additions to this months shoot though- Bottom TEETH!! 
Finally after months and months of teething, those little buggers decided to pop on through! 
And now we are STILL waiting for the top ones to appear. 
Travis and I headed to San Diego for 8 days and while we were gone Miss P got to spend quality time with her Gramps and Gammi (my parents). It was fun for all! 

And while we were gone, P FINALLY decided that crawling on all fours would get her around MUCH faster than army crawling around. Little stinker! 
It was so nice getting home to this happy girl! 
Travis taught her to pull herself up and she quickly got the hang of it and right after we got back, started cruising around the coffee table and couches and back again. 
Who knew finding a sticker could entertain a baby for hours?! 
She sat here forever playing and examining it.
This blue eyed cutie sure looked cute on Valentine’s day.
And we had a nice quiet evening at home Valentine’s Day night as a family. 
This little Miss LOVES her bath time! She plays and splashes to her hearts content. 
P has looked cute but that’s no sursprise.
She has napped to regain her strength.
And she has gotten into her diaper and wouldn’t look at me when I asked what she is doing. lol 
She has started walking really well while pushing a toy and her balance is slowly getting better if she tries to stand. 
I’m sure it is only a matter of time she takes off running and I so don’t want to start the chase. lol 
It could potentially be an interesting 9 month recap! 
Stay tuned!

St. Patrick’s Day Printables

Hi all! 
Do you decorate for St. Patrick’s Day? 
I usually don’t but still wanted to make a couple of fun printables for those of you that do! 

I made a few chalkboard printables and a few regular printables.

You can download or print the ones you would like below.

“Lucky” St. Patrick’s Day Wreath

I shared this tutorial on Mom It Forward right before Valentine’s Day and thought I better share it with you guys too! 

I don’t have much St. Patrick’s Day decor. We aren’t Irish and so I have never thought about decorating for it.
I bought this small wreath stand on clearance after Christmas and thought why not finally put it to good use by creating a small St. Patty’s Day wreath for it. 


So away I went to get creating! 

 It was super easy to creat as well, which is always great! 

Here’s how I did it.

Supplies:
-Wreath Form

-Yarn
-Felt
-Ribbon
-Twine
-Faric Marker
-Hot Glue Gun

 Wrap the wreath form with the green yarn.

 I then free handed some four leaf clovers on felt with a fabric marker.

 I cut out the clovers and then glued them onto the wreath slightly overlapping them.

 I took some yellow ribbon and made small loops with them and glued them next to the clovers for a little more embellishment.

 I took out some felt in rainbow colors, (think to yourself ROYGBIV) and cut out little pennants and glued them onto some twine to make a banner.

Using my fabric marker, I wrote the word “LUCKY” on the banner.

Then, I tied the banner onto the wreath.

Tied some yellow ribbon on the top to hang it on my wreath hanger and it is all set for St. Patty’s Day!

I sure am hoping it will bring me a little luck!

Sponsor Love: Old Barn Rescue

I would like to welcome A Glimpse Inside’s newest sponsor, Old Barn Rescue!  
 They specialize in hand-drawn vinyl decals and upcycled home decor. 
 Here is a little more information about them from their “about” page
“This business adventure began in 2003 when my dad told me he needed to
tear down the barn from my childhood farm. I couldn’t stand the thought
of all that beautiful, weathered, 120-year-old wood going to the
landfill or burn pile.  With the encouragement of my friend, Adonna, we
gathered some of the wood, collected a stash of old “junk”, started
creating, and Old Barn Rescue Company was born!”
I would have saved some of that wood too!! 
You can find a ton of fabulous vinyl decals in their shop! 
Here are just a few: 
Lots of great personalized decals

I love this one!! Perfect for a bathroom! 🙂
Perfect to show off the works of the budding artist in your family.
And if you would rather have your decal on a piece of upcycled material, they have that too!
Take a minute and pop on over to Old Barn Rescue and see if anything catches your eye!
Their stuff is fabulous and their prices are great as well! 
Thanks so much for becoming a sponsor of A Glimpse Inside!
