Craft Saturday went well. It was a learning experience, just like Jen and I thought it would be. Hopefully we'll be able to do it again in June, though it sounds like they're revamping the application process.
I just got done rocking Stella to sleep. She used to be so good about putting herself to sleep, but lately it's been really hit or miss. Unfortunately Brian and I are not the "cry it out" type of parents. She makes one little noise and we're cribside putting her "plug" back in her mouth. Maybe someday we'll learn to back off, but right now we just don't feel like we're ready.
She's so much fun at this age, though. Her little personality is growing bigger everyday. She's learned to roll from her back to her stomach, so now she's a rolling machine. She'll only roll one way, though, so I keep having to "reset" her back to her original position every few minutes. She's also started to do an excercise that resembles ab crunches. When she's on her back she'll try real hard to lift up her head, like she's trying to sit up. It seems like it's only a matter of time now that she'll be more mobile. I'm both looking forward to and dreading that day.

Here is one of my favorite photos of Miss Stella.
I'm hoping the stress will subside a little after Craft Saturday. I hope you're planning to come and visit me and Jen. There will be plenty of other talented people there selling their wares - god knows that if I make any money at all it will surely be spent buying other people's things. Like my Etsy store, the other vendors' stores seem to be bare, probably because of the craft show. Though I'm excited to participate, I can't wait for it to be here and over already, so I don't feel so rushed to create.
