Mike and my dad slaved away at the patio as soon as we got home from the hospital and it looks wonderful!! Mike has been working like crazy to get mulch beds in, flowers planted and here Ainsley and him are having some good father/daughter bonding time planting tomato plants...
I'll post pics with the finished product when it's complete. Don't think Mike will be laying anymore patios down in the future- much harder than he anticipated!
I wanted to share some cute onesies and bibs I have using iron-on appliques. I had a bunch of the gerber white onesies from when the girls were babies and never really used them because, well, they are white and I always had the girls in something pink or girly- white was just too plain!! Anyways, I found some cute iron-ons at Jo Ann Fabrics and thought I'd try it and figured I had nothing to lose if it didn't work but I think they turned out cute! I think they're fun for summer when you don't want to fuss with an outfit all the time and they are a little more interesting than just a plain white onesie.
Here's some of the bibs- I remember when my girls went through their drooling stage and I had to have them in bibs all the time. I didn't like how it covered up their cute outfits so I liked getting their bibs monogrammed so at least the bibs looked cute:) Well, Bennett is no exception- we're ready for the drooling stage! And it was much cheaper than getting it monogrammed! I just got the bibs at Babies-R-Us in a bulk pack and then added the iron-on letters- we'll see how well they hold up.
So I realize that all this cutesy boy stuff will have to come to an end at an earlier age than for girls. Before I know it, he will be dressed like daddy- polos and khakis, so I'm taking advantage of the cute baby boy clothes now, while I can!
All in all it was a nice weekend! Bennett is still doing the long stretches at night and we go in for a weight check tomorrow so I'm just praying he's gained enough for the doctor to be pleased because I'm afraid if he hasn't I'll have to start waking him up to feed, which I kind of have to anyway after 4-5 hours of sleeping (he doesn't do this during the day though)!
