• {DIY} Valentine’s Day Heart Garland Tutorial

    Inspired by my confetti garland from last week, today I’m sharing a super easy DIY heart garland for Valentine’s Day.  And when I say it’s easy, I mean really really easy.  This one would be fun to do with your kiddos – just let them decorate the hearts before you string them.

    You can either use a heart-shaped hole punch and punch (or cut out) hearts from whatever color card stock you like.  Or, if you want to make it really easy, you can buy these from Paper Source and avoid the punching/cutting altogether.

    {Instructions}

    Insert your string or yarn through the eye of your needle.  Give yourself as much slack as length you want in your garland.  Then start “threading” your needle through each heart.  I alternated red and pink.  Once you have the length of garland and spacing of hearts that you want, you’re done!  I used about 40 hearts and about 6 feet of string to make mine.  You can use less, or spread them out over more string to make it less “full.”

    I’ll be using mine for Charlie’s Valentine’s Day party with his playgroup.  I’m also using this really cute DIY from Wiley Valentine for Charlie to give to his buddies.  It reminds me of decorating a shoe or tissue box and taking it to elementary school to collect all of the valentine’s from my classmates.  So fun, right?

    •  You've had quite a milestone month from 7-8 months. You're scooting (with some speed), crawling, sitting up on your own, and sleeping through the night (with one feeding around 4:30-5) pretty consistently. You totally want to mix it up with your brothers -- sometimes I think you are trying to jump out of my lap to get to them. You and Charlie have the sweetest relationship and you and Cal are best bros. They are both so loving towards you and patient when you pull their hair or grab the toy they have. I wish they were that patient with each other  They both watch out for you, retrieve things you drop, laugh when you're doing silly things like shaking your head like crazy, and are always looking for you. You're eating solids three times a day, still love to nurse, still have no teeth, are constantly babbling (dadadada is common), and are amazingly strong. You are 21.5 lbs (75th %) and are 90th % for height. And you still don't like me out of your sight -- all the heart eyes for momma and I love it. You're quite a flirt with everyone though but aren't loving when men get too close or talk to you too much. Except for daddy -- you're a big fan of him. You went from being my hardest baby to my easiest of the three right now. Thanks for the reprieve. Your happiness is infectious and each dimpled smile you give brightens everyone's day. Happy 8 months buddy. Love you times a million. #quincysmonthbymonth  I know someday you won't want to hold my hand anymore, but I sure do hope that day is still very far away. Like 10-15 years maybe?  #battlefieldmotherhood
       These three are why I'm now a morning person. Starting each day with smiles and kisses from these boys is what fuels me for the day. And coffee. Lots and lots of coffee  #thefredrickboys  Had the best time with my biggest boy at the @nhmla today. He's been there so many times since we have a membership that he has an order he likes to follow. But I surprised him by taking him on Dinofest weekend and he loved it so much he didn't even mind that it was too crowded to see the butterflies today or that we couldn't see everything. Sometimes it is so good for the both of us to have some time together, away from the babies. Like the old days. #charlesdashiell #mommacharliedateday #oldsfaveplacesinla
