Comebacks and Transformations...

Well, it has certainly been awhile!

Things are doing well in the Parker household! Zoey is now almost 18 months old... Can you believe that? Time has absolutely flown, and I finally understand what other parents meant when they said that I'd forget the little things. I find myself looking back on pictures and videos from 2012-2013, and while I remember the moment, I can't believe my baby was really that little! 

Loving on Rainbow Dash!

In the last year, Zoey has learned to walk, talk, sing, and dance... She has been to Europe twice to visit her family and explore the world. She loves castles! Among her favorite shows are Bubble Guppies (which my husband and I both admittedly love!) and My Little Pony (which she sings the theme song to every time she sees them. The girl can spot ponies from a mile away!). She loves dolls ("Ohhh, babies!") and loves to wear my jewelry. She is still a red head! Who knew 2 brunettes could end up with a ginger baby?

A day at the park.

In the last year, I've expanded my crafting hobby to sewing and selling cloth diapers, which I love! (Shoutout to Itsy Stitches!) I balked at the thought of reusable diapers in the past, and now I can't imagine ever using a disposable again! I also got an embroidery machine, which has always been something I dreamed of getting, and "Monogram ALL the  things!" has become a frequent joke in our house!

With all of that said, I think it's time for a comeback for Rainbows & Sparkles... Though not as what it was. There will still be the occasional nail post, oh yes! I don't think I could make my grand return without showing off some fun manicures! But I'm so much more than nail polish. I'm a breastfeeding, babywearing, cloth diapering, sewing, crafting, singing, reading, fun-loving stay-at-home Mommy that loves to brag about my little girl. I want a place to share my love of crafting and baby wearing and cloth diapering and parenting... So, expect big changes from Rainbows & Sparkles. The name is the same, but I tend to incorporate Rainbows & Sparkles into many aspects of my life, not just onto my nails.

PS: By the way, I didn't forget about the nails!
