Le Bebe

Sorry for the lack of posts, my internet company decided none of it's customers needed access to the net for the past couple days. But I'm back! With a project I've been working on :) (No, I have not been working on a baby).

I few weeks ago I had a wall hanging cut for Baby B.

And before we go any farther, I'm tired of all this Baby B, Baby A, Baby K crap--they have names, you know! But, I'm not comfortable using their real names on here, and fortunately for you I can never call anyone by their given name and their given name only, so I'll take their nicknames and change them into that. So:

Baby B = Brady
Baby A = Boo
Baby K = Cabbage (...she looks like a cabbage patch doll)

Anyway, moving on...I ordered this thing for Brady. It's basically two thick foam boards and her name is cut out of the top one to be able to replace it with pictures. And I did the pictures on Sunday. Please witness three of the letters:

Those were the younger months--2 days old, 3 months old, 4 months old. It's, obviously, chronological. I put the pins in the corners (NOT as easy as it sounds) and will get a ribbon to hang it from here shortly.

My child will be ridiculously spoiled, and will wear those stupid crocheted hats with the huge flowers on them and the pretty Etsy bowclips and all of that jazz. It's inevitable. And his/her room will be awesome. Sorry, kid. I always said my kid will be the best dressed geek in the neighborhood, and it's so true.

You have to understand that my obsession love of babies started very young. You know how most kids have imaginary friends? No no, I had an imaginary baby, and her name was Jenny. From 18 months on, I had a love for babies:

Baby goes with me on Halloween at 22 months.

What I did on Christmas at 24 months.

What I should not have been doing with a real baby at 5 years.

And it goes on...

And on..

..see the problem? I do. It's no different now, except now they are real babies and I have to change their diapers.

My kids already have names (and I warn you, I like uncommon kids names such as Chandler for a girl, July, December or Deci, Leena, Lyric, Irelyn, for girls but more common ones for boys like Lucas and Liam), I already know exactly how the nursery will be set up, and they already have 8 pairs of shoes. That's right...eight pairs of shoes.

And yes, I can count, and I know that's only 7 pairs, but the only pair is in another box with a matching blanket and I was too lazy to dig it out.

However, I'm currently trying very hard to develop a love of 4-7 year olds. So far, no dice.

You are so cute! I love the pic of you lugging the real baby around. I got a big laugh out of that.

Now, I don't have seven pairs of shoes for my future children, but I do have one pair of the cutest pink shoes you've ever seen for my future little girl. If I have all boys I'm going to be screwed.

Irelyn is such a beautiful name for a girl. I love it!

I have been so tempted to buy pairs of baby shoes and little outfits when I see them. I suspect it will get harder and harder to resist as time goes by!
