Seven Quick Takes

Happy Friday, y’all!

Thanks for your advice about my glasses. I’m taking them back to the eye doctor today to get them rereadjusted. I will keep taking them back until they feel good and don’t make my brains mush out of my ears.

My best friend’s dad made Jansen a bookshelf for his bedroom. He is delivering it this weekend and I couldn’t be more excited!! I can’t wait to see it and I’m so honored that he took the time to make something special for my little man! I’ll be sure to show you pictures next weekk.

I gave Jansen a bath yesterday morning and as I was taking him out of the tub and putting him in a towel, he peed all over me. All over me. I had to laugh about it and ignore it because we all know that the worst feeling in the world is NOT getting peed on by a newborn… it’s getting out of the bath and not being wrapped up tight in a towel. Honestly, there is nothing worse than being cold after a warm bath. So I had to ignore the pee and bundle my baby up.

Jansen will be a pumpkin for Halloween. I know that’s not very original but I saw the costume and it was so cute and on sale. We don’t have any Halloweeny plans, we’ll actually be at a baby shower. But I think it’s totally appropriate for a newborn to dress up for Halloween at a baby shower. Right?

Jansen is laying on Stephen’s chest right now. I think that may be the most beautiful sight in the world – your baby laying on your husband. Sometimes I’m shocked that I have a husband. Always I’m shocked that I have a baby.

Did you know that there is a Chia Obama? Like the Chia pet… but an Obama. Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia.

Look how cute. I love these boys!

    My daughter was a pumpkin for her first Halloween costume. But she was at an odd age – she was 7 mos old and not walking, but too big for the baby costumes – so her costume was too big, really, but SO cute anyhow. She tolerated exactly 2 houses before she screamed to get out of the costume, so it was good that I had an orange onesie she could wear.
    I think at this age, the costumes are more about the photo ops anyhow.

    #3 – sometimes I am reminded that it was really good to have girl babies. That doesn’t happen that often.

    #7 – oh how adorable. It just makes the hear go zing.

    That last one should read “heart go zing”. Apparently I cannot spell today.

    Love those pictures. Miss those moments.

    We went super easy for our first Halloween – I put my girl in a bright pink onesie and said she was a jelly bean!

    I’m so glad we get to meet Jansen in his pumpkin costume!

    I feel your pain. I cried every day for 2 weeks when I got ready to head back. Then I cried everyday when I dropped him off. 😦 It’s no fun… but neither is not paying the bills. We do what we have to.
