Sweet little wrist...

Amelia and I are homebodies. We are at home A LOT. She's really good about playing inside and since it's so hot outside right now - that's a good thing. I try to come up with things for her to do - especially now that she's getting older. So today was craft day at The Averitt house!

Amelia LOVES necklaces and bracelets. She's always putting something on her wrist or around her neck (we really have to watch the around the neck thing). I decided we would make a special bracelet and necklace for her to wear today. I sat out the supplies (ribbon and fruit loops) and we went to work!



She watched me add rings to the ribbon and tried so hard to do it herself. She could get the ring to the ribbon but couldn't figure out how to pull it through. Eventually she asked for help. :)



Sweet little wrist. :)



We started on the necklace but at that point - she was more interested in eating the jewelery.



It was a fun craft that we'll definitely make/eat again. She loved it!



Love to all,

Okay, I think I just saw what we will be doing tomorrow. Off to the store for some Fruit Loops for me. Maybe this will last slightly longer than the Jello Jigglers we made on Tuesday. Hello! Jigglers don't take long to cut, and I had to stop before she ate the whole batch.

Great job, Mommy!

Awesome pictures!!!
