Hi, I'm MamaGoose!

Loving wife to my amazing husband and best friend, stay-at-home mom to my crazy, can't-sit-still, preschool daughter (aka Goose, born Aug '09) and my gotta-get-into-everything, crawling son (aka Handsome, born Dec '12)... the loves of my life and my reason for living!

A little about me... I started blogging back when I was pregnant with Goose as a way to keep all friends and family updated on how both I and baby were doing throughout the pregnancy. After she was born, I created a blog dedicated to Goose and all of her adventures growing up, but while I was blogging for her I decided I might as well create a family blog. So when she turned one I ended her blog and created a new family blog to take it's place.

Even though I'm not the greatest blogger, and I tend to forget about it every now and then, it's something I really enjoy. I love sharing my own experiences and reading/following the experiences of others. All I have to say is whomever invented blogging, thank you!

Anyway, some of my favorite blogs to follow are craft and cooking blogs. I consider myself a crafty person and a cook-in-progress, and I've been wanting to start my own craft/cooking blog for awhile. I just never got around to it until recently, I have to say that my main motivation was the sewing machine I got for Christmas in 2011. I'm still learning how to use it, but what a great way to share my sewing experiences than on my very own blog!

Please don't forget I mentioned that I tend to forget about my blog... or more correctly that I get caught up in life and before I know it, days, weeks, or even months have past between my last post! I promise I will post as much and as often as I can though!

I hope you enjoy my blog of my many adventures in crafting, cooking, and life!

Boy does time fly... It's March 2013 already! 

First I'd like to appologize for going MIA for the past 7 months!  I guess I have alot of catching up to do because alot has happened in those 7 months... I won't load everything all into this post, though, so don't worry!  =0) 

This post I will dedicate to my hardest and greatest project last year... my baby boy! 

Handsome was born December 19, 2012 at 1:43am, weighing 8lb 5oz and measuring 21.5" long!

I have to say it was a long pregnancy for me.  We didn't have any complications, but I was sick more with him than I was with Goose, and I was very stressed and anxious throughout the whole pregnancy.  Lets just say that I am extremely happy to have him here with now!

He is such a good baby, has the most adorable little smile, and best of all he is a Mama's boy and loves to snuggle!  (Goose was always Daddy's girl and would rather be up looking at the world than snuggled in anyone's arms!) 

We love him so much!
