I'm officially two weeks from my due date today. Yipppeee! Seeing as how Cameron was ten days early, and I'd be happy to have this baby, well, anytime from here on out, now seems as appropriate as anytime to start the fun.
And...there's a prize for the winner!
I know, you can hardly contain your excitement. Me neither.
I haven't blogged about it yet (hoping to soon), but I've been quite busy crafting baby and new mommy gifts lately (hence this past week's blogging hiatus...well, and the three-day detour over at my in-laws). Anyway, I have several little items I'd love to offer the winner of this little fun fest. I've been making cute, peanut-shaped burp cloths with frayed edges, tag blankets, and nursing covers.
And yes, as a matter of fact, I do think burp cloths and nursing covers are pretty darn exciting, thankyouverymuch. Here are some pics I snapped quickly tonight (not great, but you get the idea):
Aren't they cute? Really, what's not to love? (Or get excited about?!) I knew you would.
I'll snap some pics of the tag blankets tomorrow (Cam's sleeping with his now - he has three).
Update: As promised, here they are. These are highly valued items in our house! I made them for Cam when he was a baby, and they've been his "loveys" every since. Whenever I need to calm him or cue him to go to sleep, I just pop these guys in his lap and *presto!* Well, usually...
And I'll post pics of the nursing cover as soon as I finish mine. I was a genius and didn't take any pics of the one I made and gave to a friend this weekend. Anyway.
Here you go! I posted about this nursing cover here:
If you don't have a baby, aren't a (relatively) new mommy/daddy (or going to be), or grandmother, or aunt/uncle, or whatever...and you don't know anyone who you might be able to give these sweet little items to (because who wouldn't love them?), and you don't want to keep them to snuggle with yourself...we'll just have to work something else fun and exciting out. Like ice cream. Or something.
So here are the rules (or guidelines, if you're one of those anti-rules sort of people...)
1. You may only enter once by commenting on this post. Sorry all you Facebook commenters, you knew you were going to have to figure it out one of these days. You too, Mom.
2. Your entry should include both the anticipated birth date and time. (This way, if we have several who guess the same date, we have a legitimate way of choosing a winner. Brilliant, I know.)
3. You must submit your entry no later than Friday, August 14th, at midnight. And if I have him before then, I WIN!! And well, I guess you will have had to have entered before then...
4. Just for additional fun if you like (and who doesn't love more fun?!), you can also guess his birth weight and length. Maybe, just maybe, I'll throw in a prize for those winners, too. I'm generous like that.
Info that may (or may not) help to guide your guesses can be found in the boys' birth stories, here and here. Instructions on how to comment are below.
