Tonight I'm going to start stitching on one of my original Cottage Mama hand embroidery designs. I've had these for ages and just haven't released them since I never get them stitched out. Lots more where these came from! #cottagemama #embroidery #creativemamas

borntomakestuff : @thecottagemama I swear this is way tooooo ironic. I was literally just scrolling through these today. So thrilled and excited to see them in action!!! <3 <3
meganabelardsanders : Did you draw those?!?! My hats fantastic!!
meganabelardsanders : Hm not my hats. That's. That's fantastic!! πŸ˜‚
smallfriendly : Great designs!
thecottagemama : @meganabelardsanders No, these are my ideas but I worked with Natalie @borntomakestuff from Moon Cookie Gallery to come up with these for The Cottage Mama. She also did my pattern cover artwork.
meganabelardsanders : So pretty! Can't wait to see it finished. I would like to learn how to do this!
thecottagemama : @meganabelardsanders Hmmm....I know someone who can teach you ;). It's a great, relaxing activity....plus you can take it anywhere.
borntomakestuff : @thecottagemama thank you so much for the shoutout. I appreciate it!!!

This little lady has been working so hard on her smiling this week. I have yet to snap a shot of her full grin but this is close. #babynumber4 #sweetjosephinemae #babysmilesarethebest

jojoandeloise : So PRECIOUS!!!
emilyryanlikes : Gorgeous. How many weeks is she now? Bear is starting to smile more and more. So exciting.
thecottagemama : @jojoandeloise Aww, thank you! She's a keeper :)
thecottagemama : @emilyryanlikes Emily, she is just about 6 weeks. I think she and Bear are 4 days apart.
emilyryanlikes : @thecottagemama that's right!! Amazing. It will be so fun to follow along! Bear and Josephine should play someday soon!

This little sweetie had some tummy troubles today and didn't want to be put down. Poor baby. She is sleeping like a log right now.....in my arms......but I don't mind one single bit. #sweetjosephinemae #babynumber4

craftymamajen : We used the Happi Tummi when my guy had tummy issues - you warm it up & wrap around their belly. It smells delicious too :-) Enjoy that sweet girl. She's gorgeous.
thecottagemama : @craftymamajen Oh I've never heard of that! Sounds great....thanks for the advice!!
sumossweetstuff : I need to try that happi tummi too - poor Jabes is always having tummy troubles!
craftymamajen : You are welcome!! A friend told me so I always pass it along - we got ours at Buy Buy Baby.
thecottagemama : @sumossweetstuff I was just checking out the reviews on Amazon. Looks like a good product and is all natural too!
nataliedroz : I was going to recommend Happi Tummi! My little guy had issues and it helped for sure
sumossweetstuff : I will have to check it out later. Poor guy wakes himself up so much during the nite, maybe this would help me and him get more sleep! πŸ˜„

I set Miss J down for a minute to grab something for Caspian and came back to a sleeping baby. I guess she was tired....... #sweetjosephinemae #fourweeksold #sleepybaby

Josephine loooooves the Moby Wrap (well, all my kids did). She falls asleep right away once I put her on and I love having her on my chest. #babynumber4 #babywearing #mobywrap #sweetjosephinemae

It's my first week on my own as a mama of 4. We all made it to the bus stop happy and fed by 7:30. Couldn't ask for a better start to the day. Wish me luck that the rest goes smoothly! #babynumber4 #momof4

aestheticnest : You'll do great!
finnmama13 : You can do it!
thecottagemama : @mamabplus3 @sewinginnomansland @handmadekathy @aestheticnest @nadineelsa Thanks for all your support!! I really appreciate it!
thecottagemama : @littlelapsi @rileyblakedesigns @jennyrach @iftheywouldnap @shirleygirliemom @fishmuseum @sjksanders Thanks you guys! Those first few days are always a little tricky until I fall into a new routine. So far, so good.....we'll see if that stays the same when the girls get home from school :)
thecottagemama : @familyeverafter Congratulations to you! I'm so happy it's going well for you all. I love a routine so I'm just trying to adjust to transitioning into a new one :). How old is your baby now?
familyeverafter : I just tagged you in one of my pictures so you can see him :-) I don't have any words of wisdom, just to try and soak up the babiness! It is hard to juggle, but we are enjoying it :-) he has been my easiest baby, everyone says that baby number four is always the most relaxed.
vintagevesta7 : The baby is so cute peeking out lol
thecottagemama : @vintagevesta7 Thank you! She looks so tiny next to the other kids.
