Surprisingly, there was no cake this weekend. I didn’t feel like making myself any cake, and no other cakes appeared to me. However, I know I get a cupcake on Wednesday, so it’s okay! I feel pretty good about my weekend. It was very relaxing, and it was nice doing very little. We didn’t get the careseat installed, but we did get the crib put together & the changing table mounted to the wall. I’m not really into decorating or anything, so I’m not making Alvie’s room some kind of wonderful nursery showcase. It’ll be a nursery/guest room for the next few years, and he’s a tiny baby & most likely doesn’t care what I do to the walls. When he gets old enough to have an opinion, hopefully we’ll be in a house where he can have his own room & we can decorate it however he wants. But for now, it’s staying espresso, sage & red. It’s also staying a little cramped.
The only pictures I took this weekend show off items 12 and 22. I got the cutest baby robe (it’s a shark! and it says “let the fin begin”), and since I don’t yet have a baby, I got Darwin to model it for me. He was THRILLED! I was going to try to get his arms (front legs?) in the arm-holes, but that was further than he was willing to let it go. I wish I had a docile cat like Jen’s (scroll down to the last picture – trust me, it’s worth it)!
