So for the past 12 weeks I have been showcasing some of my wife’s amazing talent. The wall in our passage way that, for the purposes of this blog series, I have called “Marla’s Blog”.

CJ loves cat’s. I wish I could tell you that they love her back, but alas that would be a lie. She has yet to learn how to treat a cat in a way that makes the cat want to be with her.
I can still remember telling my brothers and sisters the same piece of advice “If you want the cat to stay with you then you have to let it go when it want to.” And like it did not make sense to them back then, it does not make sense to CJ.
But here is one cat that can’t run away.
This was the month of CJ’s first haircut. You have no idea how upset I was. Marla knew it was going to happen, all I knew was that CJ was spending the morning with her Avó (that’s grandmother in Portuguese). So add the shock to the ‘not knowing’ I was upset.
- Avó took her for her first hair cut – she looked very cute but we missed her gorgeous curls, and vowed never to cut her hair again, never ever!
The kind of project that inspired this series of posts is not one undertaken lightly. Becky already alluded to it in a comment on a previous post in this series. We have another child joining us in the next few weeks and Marla will have to embark on a similar project for Alicia.
This one is probably my favorite. And not just because of the memories it brings back. 3 weeks in the sunny Caribbean. My work sent me to a conference in the USA (that was awesome), my sister was the ship’s doctor on a cruise ship sailing out or Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, so we hitched a ride on the ship for three weeks (that was also awesome).
Marla (my wife) is a seriously creative girl. If you have been following her ‘blog’ you have probably come to the same conclusion yourself.
I have been using the Thursday evening slot on my blog to showcase one of her projects… The Chrystina wall.
She created 12 individual, but collectively themed, scrap book ‘pages’ that now hang on a wall in the passage of our house. One for each month of CJ’s first year.
