Monday Madness

It was just your average weekend here at HuYoung Heaven. Old friends, new babies, laughter, fresh stories, good food, late nights, hot coffee, bare feet, and record heat.

Nothing beats old friends. Unless it’s watching your children become friends. Man, I love that.

When our friends’ youngest boy was 6 months old, I tried out my new stretchy baby wrap with him. It was my first baby wearing experience and I loved it.  I couldn’t wait for Amelia to get here so I could wear her too. Now the little fella is 18 months old, and he let me wear him again this weekend, just for old time’s sake. I wish I had a picture of it. I love babywearing. There may be a post on that subject coming soon. I mean, yesterday while I was wearing Amelia, I was able to bend down to pick up the 18 month old and hold him on my hip to keep him out of traffic for a minute. And I still had one hand free. Two babies, one hand. Now that’s what I wish I had a picture of.

Needless to say, we’re all a little bit exhausted over here. But it’s a good exhaustion. Amelia never had so much fun with two little boys to entertain her. Too bad they weren’t able to teach her to sleep through the night while they were here.  She did learn a lot about Buzz and Woody though, so that’s a plus.

Thanks for coming to visit, Jones family! Naptime, anyone?

A Sneak Peak

A few days ago I told you that while my mom was in town we did some serious sewing for our Etsy shop, As You Stitch. But what I didn’t tell you was that most of the sewing was for our newest venture, As You Stitch {Baby}. The original As You Stitch is coming along so well that we are expanding!

Here’s a sneak peak of what to expect in As You Stitch {Baby}.

Stretchy Baby Carriers


Baby Ponchos

Cloth blocks (both large and small) like Amelia’s.   ps – don’t you just love a baby in a toy box?

Cloth Wipes (again, like Amelia’s, seen here)


See those little stacks of scrap flannel below? Just the beginnings of many many little heiny wipers. We hit up JoAnn’s for more of the cutest little 1/2 yards of flannel that you ever did see. Oh, and look, there’s Amelia’s block again. And look again, Emma is wearing a twirl skirt!

Coming also to As You Stitch {Baby} – Boutique Baby Clothes, Picnic Blankets, Handmade Toys and more!  Just as soon as we get it all photographed and listed. We’re aiming to have the shop open by mid-April. Stay tuned!

We paint.


We play peekaboo.



We get tired, and we take naps.


She’s my little sidekick. And no, you can’t have her.

Embrace the camera over at the Anderson’s today.

Today’s photo is of Amelia’s new favorite way to spend the afternoon. In the Moby. Facing out.  She doesn’t even care that her arms are tucked in and that her dress is all bunched up. She just likes kicking those fat legs and looking around at the world.
