Did I mention that another of Alaine's nicknames is Owl-laine?  It's hard to remember how it even got started.  Was it because she loved to stay up late when she was a tiny newborn?  Maybe partly.  Was it because her Aunt Kati brought her a stuffed owl souvenir from her summer trip when Alaine was just a week old?  I think maybe.

When I won a bloggy giveaway and chose an owl-y dress for my little owl, I was more than a little happy. New clothing is just plain fun.  

Coincidentally, it was the same giveaway where I gave away a little nest necklace, and all this winning and shopping and admiring the handiwork of another mom finally inspired me to open my own Etsy shop.  I'm making Eggs-in-the-Nest necklaces, inspired by my own little birdies.  My birdies surround me as I make them, too.  Usually, we are all gathered at the school table with the baby at my feet or in my arms.  (Multitasking!) 

When Maddie heard me talking about opening my shop she said, "Mama, is your shop only on the computer?"  I answered yes to which she replied, "Good.  Because if you went to work, I'd have to go to a school building and I want to be home with you."
