st. patrick's day weekend

The Moncrief's had a wonderful St. Patty's Day Weekend. Friday night was filled will rest and relaxation. I caught up on Ada's Baby book and my Belly Book (prenatal scrapbook) while Jimmy caught a flick and Ada caught some ZZZs.

Saturday was Ada's first girls night. We were suppose to scrapbook at our house. Ha! Yeah, we got absolutely no scrapbooking done with all the talking we did. For approximately 5+ hours straight we talked about babies. No subject change what-so-ever. How could we not talk about babies? Of the six Marketing buddies from college over half of us will have babies this year. This is a shot from the amazing shower that they blessed me with in early January. I am very thankful for each of you and am excited to transition into a new stage of life with you all. Becca, Melissa, Moi & Ada, Katie, Jessica and Kristi. This is not all of us but, it is St. Patty's Day 2007 in Hilton Head. I thought it very appropriate to pull it out of the archives. Sunday the three Moncriefs headed downtown. Our original intent was to simply pick up a custom onesie for Ada's up and coming friend and it turned into so much more. First, is this not the cutest thing you have ever seen. I absolutely adore Ada's onesie but Tobi, owner of Ivey Handcrafted, was even able to top that. I simply gave Tobi my requested color scheme and wordage and WOW!
Even better, Tobi is one of the sweetest and most sincere people you will ever meet. We love you, Tobi. It was great hanging out with you. See ya soon! Tobi, fashionista extraordinaire and Ada, onesie model(below).
Ada is back in her bunny tobaggon during a breezy stroll around Coolidge Park. Still a little big but definitely getting better. Maybe it will fit by Easter.
We ended St. Patrick's Day Eve with dinner at Aretha Frankenstein's with our Irish friends, the McKenna's. What better way to prepare for St. Patty's Day than hanging out with the Irish. Good eats and good times until the baby was ready for bed :)
St. Patty's Day: The Moncrief's headed over to the Harvey's to meet Baby Ty. The little guy was born last Wednesday so he is 4.5 weeks younger than Ada, but they weight the same. It was literally like holding twins. My mom is an identical twin so it definitely could happen. Don't even think about pinching this group. We have our green covered. Can you believe all this hair? Foy, now Ty. Maybe Tucker, due in April, will be bald. Not only does Ty have a ton of hair, he also has the most beautiful large brown eyes. He is precious!
Lastly, St. Patty's family shots: Ada loved pretending to be Irish with her "Kiss me I'm Irish" onesie. Obviously Jimmy did not think twice about yielding to the onesie.
Ada decided to take a little snooze in my shot. Happy first St. Patty's Day, my little leprechaun.

It looks like ya'll had a wonderful weekend....those types of weekends are a special blessing from God.

I'm jealous of the baby with a head full of hair. Both of mine were bald as little onion heads.

So sorry to post again....but, you'll probably thank me.

Do you remember or know Terri Richmond from Tres Dias? She worked the weekend that we worked together on #27. Anyway, she has a sewing business as well, and makes some adorable stuff. But, her onesies are really cute too, and I thought you might want to check them out.

Her blog is:

She has a couple of examples on there, but she also has an etsy site. She does all kinds of things. Enjoy


PS - I'm going to talk to the Dalton girls tonight at church to see when we could get together. Is there a particular day that would be better for you?

Awwwww (said with my most endearing affection). Ada is just as beautiful as her Mom. Brittany how could I forget the girl who told me I look 15 years younger than I actually am? I would never forget that. It's the kids honey...four kids keep you young. Keep that in mind as your planning your family. I guess the only bad thing would be when you start them as late as I did (27)-your gonna be in your mid fifties before they're all adults...not so fun, okay maybe a little fun, but hoping that I still look 40 when I'm 55. I would love to do a onesie for ADA. I can definitely do what you're talking about. I will try and put together some fabric choices and see what you like. I'll also let you choose the font that you like the best. I have several applique ones.
