2 happy’s, 1 sad

August 17, 2009

i’ll get this out of the way first so i don’t have to dwell on it : our little H didn’t win the cutest baby ever contest! (i know what you’re thinking – wtf?) another baby who looked like she could be related to Harper won – only this baby wasn’t smiling. the worst part – she only lost by 2 votes. TWO. i wish i didn’t know that part. i’m obviously bummed, but obviously still know my little munchkin is the cutest to us!

(holding back snark because i am uber SAD that i can’t go buy all the cute swag for H with the $500 gift card. )

anywho, on to 2 of the cuter things that happened today. i was taking a shower this morning, and scot had told me he was going to take the kiddo for a walk. i hear Harper fussing a little and then the bathroom door opens. Scot says “babe, am i doing this wrong?” – i pull open the shower curtain to see a crying Harper in the ergo baby, facing out. you really can’t use the ergo like that because of the way it’s made. Harpers legs were in the biggest splits possible and the look on her face coupled with his made me bust out laughing. it was the cutest, silliest most endearing thing i’d seen in a while. i wish the camera had been in close range. man, it was priceless. she did pass out on their walk and i got this little gem when he got home.

we went to dinner at LeLe (super yums thai/vietnamese place) and had some way tasty pho. we stopped to grab icecream afterwards and on the way home, Scot was singing sort of silly like to the radio. all of a sudden from the back seat, Harper started yelling loudly like him. as he kept going, she kept going, and they sang together the whole way home. it was to die for cute. i think it was one of my favorite moments ever, actually.

pretty stoked on my newest pillow. it might be the first to be for sale. problem is, i keep liking the ones that i make and want to keep them or give them to someone i like! anyways, here ’tis:

    How do you like your Ergo carrier? We have a Bjorn and use it a ton, but I read something recently that says it’s probably better for the baby’s sake to have them facing you (less strain on their hips and legs maybe??)

    LOVE the pillow you’ve made! Good for you for pursuing hobbies despite being a full-time mom! I have yet to figure that one out and sooo miss being crafty :( Are you using a sewing machine, or just hand sewing?

    And Harper’s still the cutest, no matter what.

      Gina, love the ergo. it’s so comfy! we were using a baby bjorn type carrier, but as H got bigger, it really started hurting my back and shoulders. the ergo feels like she is a newborn again! i highly recommend it.

      i have to craft after Harper is in bed. Otherwise i’d never have time! i hand sew everything for now.

    i say there should be a consolation prize…especially for only 2 votes!!! harper is the cutest…you had my vote without even seeing this other baby!!!

    how is lulu?

      Thanks for asking Kerri! I haven’t really posted since it makes me sad, but Lulu seems to be on the mend. She is on antibiotics and pain meds, so she is out of sorts, but i feel she is getting better.

    that pillow is to DIE for. loves it. it should totally be the first one for sale. (!!!)

    again, so bummed about h missing out on first place. they should have at least one some kind of prize, with the final count being so close. gah!

    the h singing story is precious. i know what you mean about those favorite moments, where your heart just swells and you think about it for hours and days afterward. that’s gotta be one of the very best parts of motherhood… :-D
