As we were getting the kids from their post-bath-let-us-run-wild-free-and-naked state to the let's-get-jammies-on-and-calm-down-and-read-some-books state, we noticed that all of Aspen's jammies were in the laundry - still drying in the dryer but not close enough to be done by bedtime. This gave me the perfect opportunity to sprint downstairs and finish some cute little jammies I had been making her - all that was lacking was the elastic in the waistband. So - WA LA! Cute new jammies on our cute little crazy-haired girl.
And since I had the camera out...I thought I might as well show ya'll (I'm practicing my Texas accent just in case we move there someday...) the coolest book I got the other day.
We were at a kids' consignment shop in Ballard and I came across this book. Such a beautiful, fun book - and since Sawyer and Aspen now have my old Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls (which my Grandmother made for me), I thought they might like hearing a story about the pair.
Well...it's not only a storybook - but a pop-up book! The pages are beautiful. I love it! (You can't go wrong in second hand stores - especially with classic vintage-y books - six bucks!) We have enjoyed it every night (and day) since I snuck it into our purchase and surprised the kids Monday night for Family Night.
Something else...today I was sorting through clothes that the kids have outgrown and trying to figure out what they need/don't need, I found this preemie outfit that Aspen wore her first few weeks. I decided to see if it fit on her baby doll.
It's crazy to think that just one year ago, she fit into that teeny outfit. Yikes!
Okay, that is enough of my random rambling for tonight...just a few little thoughts and observances I wanted to keep track of...to remember...someday.
