Cameron loves to open up presents so I wrapped the swap items up in colorful tissue paper. I hope Greyson likes to also.

I found these great big buttons at Walmart (sorry Amanda! ;) and had to find something to do with them. I have SO MUCH felt at home and decided that I would cut out shapes and make a felt board that Cameron could practice buttoning. I really want him to practice buttoning but all of this dress shirts have such little buttons that he can't do them yet so I thought this would be good practice for him.

I let Cameron paint it. He picked the colors out. He is so into pink (its his favorite color right now). I would probably be a little worried about that if he was my first boy but I remember that Anthony use to like to wear Kait's Jane dress (from Tarzan and Jane), white gloves and the parisal and he's turned out GREAT!! It's something that he's just roll his eyes at me when I tell the story when he gets older. I LOVE teenagers!!!!!!!
Here's our birdfeeder done. I hope the bright colors don't keep the birds away!
We also made multigrain cheerios birdfeeders. We used multigrain cheerios (obviously) and a pipe cleaner! This was great fine motor for Cameron but in the beginning he would string one and eat one, string one and eat one. Here's how they ended up looking like and by the next morning all the cheerios were gone. Hmmm, I hope it was the birds that ate them and not something else!!

I think it turned out cute!We also made a shamrock counting game. I made a bag out of St. Patricks Day fabric to keep the numbers in. You could also use dice and shake the dice to see which number you would mark off. If you were using a dice you would only put numbers 1-6 on the shamrocks. Cameron would pick a number out of the bag and make it to one of the numbers on the paper. He would then mark it off by putting a dot on the shamrock. This was great because not only did he work on his numbers but he also had to be extra careful to get the dot on the shamrock number. I think I'm going to try to make one of these for easter too! Here's the bag I made for it! This was fun to make! I've got a couple of other sewing projects that I need to get working on too. I'm still such a beginner! (:
I folded the tulle in half and cut it 3 inches by 14 inches using my rotary cutter. I don't know how many I cut because I used as many that would make it look full.
Next I sat down on the floor in the family room, turned on soap operas (it was a great excuse to watch soaps!!) and put the elastic around my leg like a garter. Take one piece of the cut tulle and slip it under the elastic and make sure the tulle has even ends and tie a double knot.
Just keep taking the tulle one by one and tie it on the elastic using a double knot until its all filled up.Make sure you keep the knot part towards the bottom so it lays nicely. I was going to wrap a pink ribbon around the top part but it looked fine without. I wish I had a picture of Bella wearing it. My mom says she wears it everyday, all day!

Cameron spread the peanut butter on the bagel. He's using the plastic knife we got at IKEA. I know, I know I shouldn't have let him lick the knife but I did!
