7 Weeks



It's hard to believe that my little man is 7 weeks old today. Yesterday in church he was blessed. It was his big day. He wore the same blessing outfit that each of his four older brothers wore. And atop his wee head was his hankie bonnet.




Sometimes I look at him and think he is so tiny, yet growing so big! (The above picture is here because I'm finally wearing my pillowcase skirt!)



And this is my finished WIP from Friday -- homemade, chocolate mint soap (via hot process method). It needs to harden a bit before I cut it into bars.

And for the 2 commenters that guessed correctly (Karyn and JoJo) I will send you a bar of soap! Sometimes it pays to comment! :-) [Please email me with your mailing address at carlorway(at)yahoo(dot)com. I will send it out later this week when it hardens a bit more.]

Lera--thanks so much for the soap! It smells heavenly and looks so cute in your packaging. That was so sweet of you and it's in my bathroom for guests to look at and smell. But I'll be mad if anyone actually tries to use it! Ha! And that snowman ornament is adorable too. Thanks again Lera. You rock!
