Early fall always seems so full, I think it's because everyone wants to squeeze the last little bit of summer in. Even though we had just gone up to the Flock and Fiber Festival the day before Tutu and I decided to go down to the Corvallis Fall Festival on Sunday. Oh we had so much fun! We met up with Erin and Sarah and walked around in my old college town. The day started out wonderfully by watching a bunch of little dancers making their debut:
Oh the cuteness. I can not wait to put a tutu on Tutu and get her dancing. Bj and I have been looking for a new piece of art for our house and as soon as I saw this I knew it was it.
I'll come back and edit the post with the name of the artist, I'm upstairs blogging in bed right now
I don't think any picture I take of it would do it justice. The layers of paint, just all the yumminess, I'm in love. I sent Bj a text with a picture and when he didn't answer right away (he was mowing the yard), I started freaking out thinking someone else was going to snag it. But it was meant to be. Oh and Sarah, yes, Bj loved it when I got home. I knew he would. Makes me want to get my butt back in the printmaking/painting/creating mood more than ever! And next by a lesser known artist:
Miss Sparkly Pants made her pottery painting debut. Erin was kind enough to snap a few shots of the process. Really easy, but the guy helping kept calling her "the subject" which was kind of weird.
I like this picture Erin took of Tuesday, can you see her little teeth bumps?
They are there! We picked up another little toy from our favorite local wooden toy maker, and finally found a local source for a wooden bowl.
Tuesday loves both. Right now when I feed Tutu I just put her food in a little custard dish and keep it on the table so she can't reach it. I've tried giving her some finger foods, but so far that has ended badly (poor thing threw up one time and choked the other). We only started solids about a month and a half ago, so I'm sure she'll get the hang of it eventually. She already drinks really well at least. One of her cutest new tricks:
Oh, fine, you want a video?
Haha, the burping was cracking me up (obviously). Sarah knit her the bib, and Sciarrino the hat – handknits will not get wasted in this house! When I was a the market today I gave Tutu a little taste of my split pea soup. I decided not to give her any more and she freaked her freak out, so I decided it was time to start giving her a second meal a day. This was one of her first lunches.
So that was the fall festival (with a little tangent on Tuesday's eating habits). It was a beautiful day!
