getting ready for nyc!
Next week we'll be leaving for New York for the National Stationery Show! Copper Willow has been a crazy whirlwind and I've been working a lot of long hours. I spend my week days with Laurel, but have been at the shop at night and all day on the weekends printing. I'm pretty much going on sheer will power at this point! About a week and a half left and then we can get to New York and finally have everything out on display. Right after, on the 22nd, we will then travel to New Orleans for a friend's wedding. A much needed break. I'm just hoping Laurel transitions and adapts to the new surroundings smoothly! Not to mention the time change. While she stayed on pacific coast time over the xmas holiday, she will have to change to east coast or at least central. We leave on the 16th and the show is the 18th through the 21st. We're wishing for another successful show! Last year went very well for our first time:).
Copper Willow is also featured in an LA magazine!
Laurel has been a busy body lately. She's more curious than ever and is constantly crawling all over us to get to whatever she wants. What she wants is always keys, the computer, phone or remote control:). She's not crawling yet and really hates being on her tummy, but she may crawl yet. When we push her into a crawling position, she does rock back and forth, which is supposed to be the precursor to actually crawling. But her preference is to stand, so who knows!
Laurel was sick for the first time 2 weekends ago. We thought she was just running a fever because her second tooth was on the way in. Plus we had a heat wave out here in CA and maybe it worse. But the Monday she had a rash all over her body. The doctor said she probably had a virus that gave her a fever and then a lot of babies break out in a rash afterwards. It took her several days to feel back to normal, lots of whining and complaining and crying. Poor baby:(. But while at the doctor, she did get weighed and was 16 lbs, 1 oz! A big girl! Her jumparoo gym was set on the lowest level, but we've had to move her up a size range, so I know she's really grown.
