DIY.

I know I've posted pictures of this shirt before, but I had to post the full outfit. I made the babylegs from a tutorial I found online. Love them. So cute and they make diaper changes EASY.
ahoy!


Also, have I told you the story of the chair? I haven't? Well, lucky you.
the chair.


Because the new house has an upstairs (all the bedrooms) and a downstairs (all the living spaces), I desperately needed a chair to nurse in during those midnight feedings. Two days before Lucas was born, I decided what better place to walk the kid out of me than at IKEA, eh? On my way out of the store, I visited my very favorite part, AS IS. And there sat my chair. Without thinking twice, I bought it. Then I thought twice. How was I going to get this into my van?! I'm 38 weeks pregnant! Luckily, a very nice gentleman helped me hoist it on into the van.

By the time I got home, I was so excited that I immediately pulled the chair out of the van and into the house, up our stairs and into the bedroom. I figured all that exertion could only send me into labor and what a dirty shame that would be! I love this chair. It's totally perfect.

Oh, and so is he! (Did I mention he's been sleeping through the night?!!!)
cute kid, eh?

That onsie makes me giggle. I love it. Love the baby in it too. The chair is fabulous! I need to visit IKEA when I've got some money to spend.

I'm coveting the chair and the shirt. Send them over. You don't need them anymore. I do. Come on.

Really, so cute. All around, through and through, cuuuute!

I love the leg warmers, I didn't think boys could pull those off, but boy was I wrong! The pics are so cute, he is one cool dude!!! Anyway,do you think you could share the site address so I could make some for Kaleb? Uh, and the story about the chair, love it, I would've done the same thing. I moved our stuff off the truck into storage 1 wk. before Kirsten was born, 2.5 wks early. I also went into preterm labor a month early with Kyler because I was ripping paneling off the wall and breaking it in half, long story! Luckily, they stopped labor, I still had him 2.5 wks early. The day I had him they were thinking about sending me home, so they told me to go walk. Walk, forget that!!! Paul and I went racing across the bridge and my Mom & I kept going in the elevators jumping up & down!!! Poor kid, he came out eventually that night. Wonder what I will do this time??? Ikea perhaps, hey it worked for you!
