Princess Tutu and a Schip Update

So I saw a post on my sister's blog and my friend, Heather's blog, about making a princess tutu. It looked so easy I decided to give it a try (I already had leftover tulle from Emma's birthday party in March and elastic from Jake's grandma.) It took me about 30 minutes and was definitely easy. Emma loves it (as long as she has pants on underneath because she says it's itchy without.) Here is the website with step-by-step instructions on how to make one:

We are all still messed up with our sleeping schedules, especially Josh. Here it is, 2:40am, and he is wide awake playing downstairs. Usually I would be exhausted and trying to get him back down again, but I'm not. Emma is awake too but I sent her back to bed. Hopefully she will get a few more hours sleep. It doesn't help that Josh has an ear infection (found that out at his 9-month appointment on Thursday) and I think he is teething too. Also, Ben has a cold and feels pretty miserable. I'm just glad none of this hit us while we were gone.

As for Josh's 9-month stats, he weighs 18 lbs. 6 oz. and is 29.4 inches tall (75% for height and 12% for weight... definitely a Schipaanboord with those tall and skinny genes.) I can't believe he is 9 months already. He has been standing on his own for a couple seconds at a time now. I know it won't be long until he is walking, getting into more trouble. He's my sweet and mellow baby and I'm so lucky he's mine. I told my mom I would have never tried to take the other two kids to Malaysia when they were Josh's age because it would have been miserable. Thank goodness he is such an easy-going kid.

Jamie I would like to feel bad for you that your kids won't sleep, but I am so jealous of the trip to Malaysia that I can't. No, I really hope you get some sleep soon, but your trip looks incredible. By the way I saw Whintey at Church yesterday. She is so pretty.
