Introducing the newest "Z".....Wee Peyton-Pea:
Saturday just can't get here fast enough - we met him last weekend, but needed some time to feel certain about our decision. And, to baby proof!
Our boy is just about 2 months and very, very sweet. A real purring lover-lou. It will be so lovely to have him here. I hope. We still worry a bit about how Iris will respond, but I finally decided that at some point in time there will be an actual human child here at the house whom we will all have to transition our lives around...why not start with Peyton?
I've been visiting everyone's blogs, but trying to hold a healthy distance from the adoption circuit on some level. It can be a real challenge to balance for me sometimes. July will mark 2 years of the buttercup blog - so, if you've been following along, you know about one of my frequent coping strategies. Sewing.
Here are pics of my latest etsy project - The Spirit of 76' Owls.

Please click on the corresponding name-links above to see more pics and to read my nostalgia-laced owlish descriptions! C'mon, humor me. I'm having a lot of fun with my creative outlet and a couple of my campy little items have made it into the etsy gift guides. That was pretty darn cool to see.
I've got some new ideas that I'm working on, but I have a feeling that a small furry kitcat is about to take over the place & wonder how much trouble Peyton will create with my sewing supplies? More pictures to come and stories about our recent visit to the Big Apple - God I love that place.
