The kiddos and I will be heading to Dunkin Donuts for breakfast today. And, though I tell myself I'm doing it for Caleb, we all know that I will be getting just as much pleasure out of the sweet, pumpkin glazed goodness as my two year old will. Also, I may just get 12. Maybe.
2| A Pajama Meltdown
After bathing Caleb one night this week, B came to me and asked if we had any 2T pjs. I told him no, and that I'd gone ahead and bought 3Ts last year, since a lot of Caleb's 2T shirts tend to be rather short on him. We then proceeded to open up Caleb's drawers...and realized that every single item of clothing I'd purchased for this fall and winter is 3T (and it's all stuff I purchased last year, so it can't be returned or exchanged). Every. Single. One. And most of them are way too big. Especially the pants. So, unless Caleb has a growth spurt in the near future, we are out of luck, and our son will have nothing - nothing - to wear. I won't lie, I had a bit of a meltdown when I realized this. Buying in advance may not have payed off this time around. Oops. On the flip side, realizing this did give me an excuse to do a bit of shopping. Caleb will be wearing these pajamas to celebrate Halloween, and this sweet little pair is heading his way as well. And don't get me started on all the adorable Christmas jammies I've got my eyes on now. Can you say brother-sister matching!?!
3| Cheapskate in Gingham
I missed out on this shirt the other day when I placed an order for Caleb. It had sold out, and I was bummed. Well, wouldn't you know, now it's back in stock....Buuuut, I've been doing some research, and have found a few other options I'm liking. Namely, this fitted option from Nordstrom. And my cheapskate side keeps telling me that the free shipping doesn't hurt. Anyone have or know anything about either of these options? I've love a little gingham in my life.
4| On an Uplifting Note
I love reading uplifting news articles. The news can be such a downer, and is always so full of sadness and hate lately, that it's nice to get some balance it out by reading good news now and then. This article was so lovely, it gave me the chills while reading it. Such a simple gesture - I wondered why we don't all do things like this more often for one another. Goal for the weekend: pay it forward!
5| Weekend Plans and Weekly Photo Dump
I am so, so, so excited that B has this weekend off. Y'all - this is his first holiday off since Christmas. Seriously. He worked Memorial Day. He worked 4th of July. But now we have Labor Day - which we weren't originally supposed to have, and just found out recently that he'd gotten. A glorious three day weekend. I am drunk with happiness over this. We would have loved to attend the wedding of some sweet friends of ours, but unfortunately, it's too late to RSVP now. So, we don't even have big plans or anything; just some much needed family time together. Thank you, Lord! Here's a few pictures from the last week.
Put a 5.5 inch bow on her. And realized that it may be a few years before she's ready for that. New bows order, coming right up!Wearing a 47 year old dress. And a more appropriately sized bow.
Love watching these two play together.
Hey there, blue eyes!
Decided to try the jogger trend. These have a leather waistband and cuffs, and are super flattering. Fall, I'm ready for ya!
Lookin' so stinking cute while swinging for the first time in her brother's swing.
Fun mail deliveries. Baby clothing is the best.
