Halloween Decorating

Little Bro gets his first sponge bath.
(Don't you love the smell of baby wash?)

There's no rest for the weary these days. All I have time for is feeding and pumping...every two hours, like clockwork. (And lactating is not my idea of a good time.)

A friend had planned to bring us a meal yesterday, so I finally got dressed and pulled my hair into a ponytail around 5 pm, (if you can call slipping into a jogging a suit and never changing out of the tank top I wore to bed "getting dressed.")

I've lowered my already loose standards of personal grooming. I'll try to do something about my hair before Wednesday. Wait, what day is it?

Maybe I'll be a witch for Halloween. That wouldn't take too much imagination or effort. My other option is to be a dairy cow.

I thought I'd share some pictures since we managed to get into a seasonal mood. Cute huh?

And the pièce de résistance...

That cute little onesie was a gift from Picky. It looked so big three weeks ago when we brought him home from the hospital. And now it fits. Did I mention he eats non-stop?

If you want to see what Little Bro's nursery looks like, check out Girly Stuff. She was kind enough to help pull it all together and then post pictures, too! (You can't see the detail on the curtains from the pictures, but they are the cutest...cream and khaki houndstooth print fabric.) We still have to hang something great over the crib and maybe bring in a rug, but we have time since he won't be sleeping in there for a few months.

I'll post again before Christmas!

Before Christmas!? We need to get you a transcriber or something so that you can just talk out your blog post and then "poof" it's posted to the interwebs.

He is very cute - I mean, his eyes are ginormous. I wonder if he'll have the curly hair like Big Bro, Former Known As Only Child.

We have a tree here at work that was getting decorated for every season, every single "holiday"....we're talking it even got decorated for Memorial Day and Valentine's Day and Easter and....yes. Everything. There is a Dollar Store Crazy Lady in the office. She was in charge. It currently has those same skeletons on it. :)

Your babies are too adorable. Dairy Cow is definitely the way to go....in my opinion. Been there, understand that.

The nursery looks wonderful. Your friend is very nice for helping you with that!
