Today was another good day for Amon. He’s still having a few little hiccups…one of the biggest being 2 stomach tubes that still cannot come out yet! Other than the small things, he is really doing so, so well. And we had another day full of smiles. He is slaying the nurses here…they can barely handle his smile & his bright eyes.
Last night he slept pretty decent and I stayed up until his last feeding to try a little craft project I had seen. I spotted these wire words on Whatever…which is a great blog…definitely check it out. The only thing was there was no tutorial, but I knew I could figure something out.
Before we went to the hospital, I browsed through Hobby Lobby looking at different wire options to use for these, but then it hit me…I could just use pipe cleaners. So I used pipe cleaners, craft glue and scrap fabric strips.
So here’s what I did. I twisted 4 pipe cleaners together to make the base of the word or object thicker and then added additional 4 pieced pipe cleaners as I needed for extra length.
Then I used scrap fabric to do a base covering of my anchor and craft glue just dabbed here and there.
Once I had it completely covered with a base fabric, then I picked out more fabric strips to go over it again with pops of color.
And that is that. Super easy. I made our little Ace of Hearts a little word to hang in the boys’ room too.
My sweetest little Ace ever!
We had several visitors today and that was super nice. My cousin Emily brought me the sweetest gift bag full of things just for me One of my favorite little things were these amazing matches…yes, matches! A smooth sea most definitely never made a skillful sailor. I love them!
And I came across this photo today and it made me smile. This moment seems so long ago…my “twins” seem so big now…Huddy will be 4 tomorrow! Crazy how time really does just fly on by.
Again, thank you for all the prayers for Amon. I cannot wait for our “We’re Going Home” post…I know it will be amazing/terrifying. Hope you have a grand weekend.
