BREAKING NEWS: 5 minutes ago, I deleted Candy Crush from my phone. I read this blog post from Lil Blue Boo and was like, yeah, Candy Crush is literally wasting hours of my life. Eff it! I'm gonna delete it. Then I did it right then and there before I could talk myself out of it.
Miracle of all miracles, here I am blogging again. Coincidence? I think not!
I actually have a lot of things to share as of late, in the form of multiple blog posts, but I've been completely unmotivated. Now I have one less excuse to not do anything.
First of all, we found out the gender of our baby on Monday. See if you can guess what the baby is by the end of this blog post!
Kennedy took C-buddy to the trampoline park on Friday morning. He took the day off for this. He was EXCITED. Then, when they got there, Campbell hurt his leg during a jump and they had to leave. It was devastating for Kennedy, because their fun plans got ruined. Then, devastating because C would no longer walk, and it appeared bearing any weight on his leg was extremely painful. So, our pediatrician referred us to an orthopedic clinic. An X-ray later, C is now rockin' a little blue boot.
He's adjusting well, especially since we started referring to it as his Cookie Monster foot. He'll stomp his cast and say "Cookie foot! Cookie foot!" Oh, how I love that kid.
In other news, I've been spending my time hunched over my sewing machine this past week, in preparation for Halloween. Campbell will be a robot. Here's a sneak peek:
This is from earlier today. I wanted him to try it on to make sure it fit over his cast, and he wouldn't take it off. He even has the robot arm movements down.
I plan to write a separate blog post about his little costume and what I used to make it. Plus maybe some action shots. The whole thing cost a little under $10 which was a MAJOR plus to me.
ALSO, more stuff came up on my sewing to-do list, including, but not limited to, many many things for the new baby. I bought my first few yards of fabric for the little banana-sized fetus this week, so I can make some flannel receiving blankets. These are the only pieces I could find that didn't have ice skating penguins on them. I'm ready for the winter seasonal items to GO.
I'm obsessed with that science lab fabric up top.
This morning, my little family and I trekked out to Old Navy to begin buying ridiculous amounts of clothes for the baby. Clearance section HOLLA!
I'm also excited to learn how to make a lot of baby clothes. Maybe Santa will bring me a serger for Christmas? Maybe not, he was kind of a creep last year.
Normally, I highly protest infants wearing shoes. But then I saw those little gold sandals and I thought, "Self, it would be a sin not to buy these." And thou shalt not sin, amiright?
Can you guess what kind of baby I'm having?
