In my print order that I just did, I made some old prints for Sean's 1st Year frame. I've been wanting to finish this frame for Sean's room for the longest time. Just never got around to it - but finally, I had selected the photos and printed them and cut them out and put them in order! I love it. I now need to get a frame like this for Mack. It's such a cute idea. Month per month of their first year, and then a giant 1st birthday party picture for the center. Genius!
Some garden updates:
Right now sitting on my window sill, is a slew of tomatoes of all kinds.
Beefsteak, pink girl and san marzano.
Beefsteak, pink girl and san marzano.
I picked the larger of the two zucchinis that were in the garden this morning. The other one should be ready to be picked shortly. I'll let it get a little bit bigger before taking it off the plant.
My first pumpkin is doing well. And the other two that I spotted the other day are still hanging in, but haven't gotten any bigger than what it was yesterday. I hope they get bigger soon!
Marga stopped by this afternoon, and brought Mack some sheep related goodies. Mack loves them, he thanks Marga very much for them! Aren't they cute? I love the serta sheep with the suss and the taggies sheep toy the best, but love all 3!
Dellybean also came over today, and helped me sew a bottle holder for Mack. It's a pattern I got off Etsy. I'm a beginner sewer so I wanted some help. I also eventually want to learn how to make a simple pouch with a zipper, anyone in the west island know how and want to help me? Maybe I can even find a class in the west island that I can learn how to sew simple stuff. That would be great. I finished sewing the last touches by hand this evening, so I'll test it out and photograph it tomorrow for you.
While out today with my mom, I picked up 2 Halloween costumes for Sean, as I couldn't decide which one to go with. I fell in love with the Dragon costume.
But I also fell in love with this monkey costume. And if Sean is a monkey, Mack can be a banana.
I don't own this exact banana costume, but one similar, that I got on sale after last Halloween. (Sean was already 11 months old when I bought the small banana costume, or I'd have photographed him in it. I'm not sure, it's either 0-3 month size or 3-6 month size. Either way, I'm sure it'll be fine for Mack, since he was born small and still is only in the 25th percentile at just over 2 months old. On top of the banana costume I got a Pea in the Pod costume and I believe that last one is a strawberry. They were on major liquidation, and I figured if I didn't use it for Halloween, that I would use it for photography purposes just to photograph Mack in them. Might as well use my photograph degree on my kids! So stay tuned for those photos, sometime around Halloween probably!
So... do I just photograph Sean in the Dragon, because it's too cute and for Halloween he can be a Monkey and his brother a Banana? Matching duo? What do you think? Let me know, leave me a comment!
On another note.... I'm having an issue weaning Sean off his bottle. He is refusing to take his milk (3.25%) in anything but his bottle. We tried these sippy cups today. Sean has NO issues with drinking juice out of them - we've been using them for a while. However, I want him off the bottle, so I tried. In the morning, he refused to drink his milk period in it. I refused to give him the sippy cup. In the afternoon, he drank a little bit (maybe about half) and then threw the sippy cup back at me. Refused to drink any more milk in it. This evening, before bed, also refused to drink any in it. He had a full dinner so I am not worried. I gave him extra cheese at dinner to make up for any milk he lacked today. I'm going to try again tomorrow.
Can anyone give me any advice on weaning Sean off the bottle? I just don't get it, since he does take the sippy cup with water and juice.
