Time lapse of Lorele's Hemangioma (birthmark)

Well, now that Lorelei's birthmark is hardly noticeable (in comparison to what it was), we thought we'd post photos of Lorelei's "hemangioma journey". When we first learned about it and saw the rapid and dramatic changes that occured over the first weeks and then months of her life, it felt like we would never reach a time when it wasn't a daily concern. But now we have. She calls it her "butterfly" and thinks that it is pretty special. And we think that she is pretty special as well.

Check out the dramatic change:

Some February photos of the girls

February has been a pretty wet month so we have spent LOTS of time indoors playing. Here are a few photos of the girls from this month. I can't believe that I have a three and a half year old and a twenty-one month old! Where does time go?

"Humboldt" Girls weekend in McCloud, CA

This past weekend a group of 9 of us ol' Humboldt gal-pals converged upon McCloud, CA (near Mt. Shasta) for a snowy, estrogen-filled weekend of catching up with one another. Two of us came from the central valley (April and I), one from the Bay Area (Julie), one from Colorado (Petra) and five from Humboldt. I had not seen most of these gals in over two and a half years. I really miss them and found our weekend to be good for my soul and not nearly long enough. What is funny is that this weekend had been planned months and months ago but as it got closer, we realized that we were all leaving our men with the kids on Super Bowl weekend! Oops! They were all really good sports about our timing though.

Here are some photos from our weekend!

Punkiboo Designs Baby Shirts

I know that you all receive my Punkiboo e-mails about recent shirts that I have completed, but I wanted to post a collection of "collages" of the shirts for you to view on the blog as well. Here they are! I have been quite busy with orders and have had a lot of fun creating custom shirts recently. Thank you all so very much for your business and your support! With your help our Haiti relief fund is growing!
