so i bought like 20 of them. and they were good too! ripe. juicy. delicious.
but what does one do with 20 ready to use immediately mangoes?
well. i froze some. and we ate the rest. in various forms.
and caring for infants.
he was done. she wasnt.
i was in the other room.
she was finishing her sandwich.
he was playing in his room.
it was quiet.
parents know what silence means.
only two things.
she was asleep.
(you'll be back together before you know it.
and until then, you can sleep with these under your pillow.)
if only the price of the designer fabric didnt make me want to vomit.
it turned out pretty cute.
i used this tutorial but used the minky/furry fabric for the bottom.
and sewed the body together first, rather than using a blanket stitch.
oh, and i added some krinkle paper (ie. an empty costco wipes package) inside the wings to make noise.
not bad, eh?
so layla got thrush and we've been battling it for about 2 months. not to fun on my end considering im still breastfeeding. getting a yeast infection in your ta ta's is not fun. at her 4 month appt yesterday they coated her mouth with this dye that is supposed to take care of it and it looked so funny!
and i finally decided to put her crib up. since we only have 2 bedrooms and the other 2 are already sharing a room, we left her in the bassinet as long as possible. but seeming as how she is as long as the bassinet itself, i thought it was time. hopefully our house will sell soon so that she can have some space to herself!
