Cupcakes, Berets, and Mei Tais

First of all, cupcakes are yum.  Ingrid agrees, although she only really cares about the frosting bit.

Secondly, I got a new beret this morning (clearance at Target--I have a problem with buying things I don't need merely because they are only $1.50)  Ingrid also likes this.  She is obsessed with hats at the moment.  She never says hello to Brendan anymore when he walks in the door, she just runs up "Hat Daddy!  Hat Daddy!"

And lastly, I found a tutorial on how to make a mei tai, gave it a try, and it turned out rather well I think.  I didn't have long enough ties but they still tie so I'm not worried.  Although it said to use a heavy weight fabric and I think it would be fine with regular cotton, maybe doubled?  The stuff I used is really stiff and makes it hard to tie a tight knot.  But it's cute!  I used Amy Butler fabric on one side and a cool orange paisley on the other.  The ties were really hard to sew around, so they are wonky, but nothing I think will endanger my child as I wear her.  Yay for sewing!!
