Strummin

Strummin’ on the autoharp last night with Daddy. Jay bought this for me last year, in hopes that I would be able to play it with Clara, but I have been a bad Mama, and have not had the patience to sit down and properly learn to play. It is really easy to do, if you’d like to play simple stuff, but I’d have to practice to get fancy. I think Clara is just as happy with the simple, stuff, though ;)

Corner

New dolly for Clara, although I can’t get to her to like it…so she sits perched in a cute little folksy chair. The kid just loves her stuffed monkey, and her piggy, and her teddy, and doesn’t want anything to do with human lookin’ toys.  Here’s monkey, and a blurry girl…see how monkey booted the dolly off the chair? pfff….

Monkey

and a one pigtailed girl, hoping she can go out to play on a rainy day…

  1. beautiful pictures. It all looks so cozy

  2. awww, so sweet. It brings back memories of my lil’ girl who will be 10 (ooh, double digits!) on Tuesday. I’d get her pretty dolls and make clothes for them. She wouldn’t give em so much as a glance, she only played with her stuffed animals, and still does! Never cared for dolls. I think I liked ‘em more than she did. You are such a good lil’ mama!

  3. dolls can take a lot of warming-up-to. thye take so much “getting to know.” don’t stress about it too much. sometimes the plaything that seems neglected in our eyes is actually the most important in a child’s. you never know. i understand all the hope and expectation you feel when you give your child what you hope will be a treasured doll and it gets ignored (at least for a time), though.

  4. My eldest son had a few toys that he appeared to not like or play with but his reason was that to him they were too special. He loved them but couldn’t bring himself to play with them.

  6. Oh Jenn, Your family pictures are just adorable. Clara is getting so big and doesn’t look like a baby anymore. She is such a sweetie. I am so glad you are having such a fun time with her. They grow up so fast.
    Happy 2008 to all of you

  7. Clara is so pretty!! ^_^

  8. soo cute!!! I always loved the autoharp in school. When I ask my kids if they have one at their school they look at me like Iam crazy. I was even asked if that means it plays itself. lol Let me know when your package gets there,seeing your little one makes me even more excited about it!

  9. pretty photos.

  10. what a precious blog you have! I came across it when I was researching a new book I got…Textile Designs…and about to share with my blog friends on my blog {havealovely.blogspot.com}. I hope its ok that I’ll be visiting often your precious spot on the web!

  11. Your girl looks like she has a halo to match the autoharp! What a lovely coincidence and LOVE your title.

  12. If you’re in uncomfortable position and have no cash to get out from that, you would have to receive the personal loans. Just because it will aid you definitely. I get financial loan every single year and feel good just because of this.
