As you may have noticed, posting was obsolete last week as we gallivanted across Texas to visit Janssen and Bart, and spend a few days in San Antonio. Peanut was an angel considering how much we dragged him around each day, and he thoroughly enjoyed all of Janssen’s baby girl, Ella’s, toys. There was also much milk stealing. And baby hair pulling. But we’ll try to forget those times and just focus on the few times when they actually noticed that there was another baby around and then sat together and played. And how it made Janssen and my hearts melt to little puddles of love and happiness.
The week before we left on vacation was a whirlwind of sewing and packing. One of the week’s sewing projects was my one and only maxi dress. Don’t hate me, but I kind of hate maxi dresses. Or maybe I just hate this particular maxi dress. The fabric is cute, but that’s about all the dress has going for it. Wrong length, weird material, stupid ruffle at the bottom, billowy around the empire waist that makes me look pregnant…I could go on.
So, a little chop, a few inches taken in on the sides, and now this dress could be in the running for my favorite summer dress.
