This is the pattern up close. It kind of looked like an animal print from far away, but it is just tiny bubbles. I love this pattern and cannot wait to use it! I thought I had found a great crib on Ebay, but the bidding got a little too high for our budget, so we will wait for the next "steal" to come around. We are planning on him being in a cradle in our room for a while anyway, so we still have plenty of time. The nesting has really started, and I have only had a few "freakouts" when I realize that we have NOTHING ready for him. I keep thinking we need to go get the cradle from Mom and Dad's house, but it hasn't happened yet (and they live here in town). I guess the nesting this time around will be more geared towards cleaning and making space for him, rather than getting equipment ready. We are so thankful that most of the equipment for Kate is still in great condition, neutral in color, and still in our house!
On a not so great note, we found out yesterday that the new stroller we ordered has a recalled part! There is a laceration hazard if you have your hand in the hinges when you fold it- am I the only person that thinks it is crazy to have to recall for THAT? Who puts their hands in hinges when you are folding things in the first place?! I found a website that sends you free hinge covers if requested, so I went ahead and ordered those so they will be here in a few weeks- just in case I feel like putting my hands in some hinges.
We are off to AUBURN for the weekend!!! Football season begins! Brandon is geared up for a full day of tailgating, seeing friends, watching other games, etc. But, I am not sure how much walking around in the heat Kate and I will be up for. Papa G and JoJo are going to be in town to keep Kate if she gets tired of tailgating and needs a nap, which makes me so happy! I am pretty excited about seeing everyone, but to be honest, I will probably not pay any attention to the actual game! War Eagle!
