Holy Moley that's a lot of clothes.
That was my thought as I washed and folded another load of baby clothes for the boy. We have such generous friends, who have blessed us with gifts and loans of so many A.Dorable clothes for this kiddo...not to mention that I have been a little shop-happy :). He and we are truly blessed.
I wonder when he gets here how many of these things will be worn, which will be favourites, which clothes will hold precious memories in the future. I know I will want to take his picture in each and every one - good thing we are no longer limited by the 36 pictures on a roll of film!
I know that the novelty of laundry will wear of quickly, but I also feel so lucky that I get to be home with our little guy, and with that perspective household chores take on a slightly different perspective.
The weather here in Seattle continues to heat up. The belly continues to grow. Here is a snap from this morning. "She could have made a bit more effort with her hair" you say. True, but geesh cut a preggo some slack, the wet hair feels fantastic, its not so much as a style as a lifestyle choice at this point!
This weather has meant more time in doors and I confess I have found a new guilty please TV show that I just have to share with you. If anyone reading this was, like me, pretty sad when Rory Gilmore set off on the Obama tour bus and we were left to imagine the wedding of Lorelai and Luke, then you must check out this new little show. Its on 'ABC Family' so I feel as though it could easily slip under the radar of someone looking for a funny little piece of charm to keep them company an hour a week. The show is sweet and sassy, set in a small town full of character and characters (sound familiar). It is produced by Amy Sherman-Palladino who was the creator of Gilmore Girls and has that same feel, but its different enough that you don't actually expect Kurt or Babbette to walk into a scene.
The only downside (in my humble opinion) is the name of the show. Its called 'Bunheads' It's a reference to the ballet studio which plays a role in the show but every time I say it I hear it as 'Bumheads' which takes me back to childhood when "Bum head" was the ultimate insult to call my brother and a mandatory 25p off my pocket money. However, if you can get past the name I think it will pull your heart in just as it did mine. So enjoy and let me know what you think if you do check it out.
Me and the belly are off to run some errands, slowly and staying hydrated, before the heat really kicks in.
