Last week I used the directions found at Adventures In Fluff to make my own knockoff BabyLegs. I used an old pair of "toe socks" that I had planned on donating to Goodwill. This particular pair required less sewing because I only had to cut the toes off and roll the edge under. I can't wait for the cooler weather to come back so Peanut can wear them more often. :)
Oh, and something that isn't quite clear in the directions: the "sock" is worn upside down. The part that is around Peanut's ankle was the original top. :)
Today my little nephew made his appearance. See how cute he is:
Our live coverage team, Pop-pum, Mum-mum, and Aunt SAM are on the premises now however the reports have been spotty. We all know how a new baby can capture the complete attention of folks so we will have to bear with them. :) :) :) Who can blame them? Take another look at how sweet he is.
I wonder if they have thought of a blog name for him....
I'll *try* to make this a short post because the best part of the updates (the pictures!) are unavailable. Yes, my dear friends our camera has died. ;( It made a terrible crunching noise as I turned it on the other week and now only a green light briefly shines when I try to power it on. On a good note though I think I might be able to trade it in for Swagbucks or Recycle Bank points.
August was a busy month hence the reason I'm posting this in September! We had a week long vacation right in the middle of the month and have been recovering ever since. :) No, actually it was restful even if it was busy.
While we were on vacation Peanut started to really crawl. Not just army crawl, but a get up on your knees and crawl. He is almost walking but needs to get better balance first.
Peanut still continues to nurse and only has two teeth. Table food has become interesting to him now so another plate and fork might be added to the table soon.
On our vacation JuneBug had his first experience swimming (other than in a bathtub). At first he was quite frightened (my neck was in his death grip). By the end of the vacation though, he was walking back and forth in the water to Ike and me. I wouldn't call him a fish but I could see him really start to enjoy swimming. Maybe next summer?
School is beginning for many now and JuneBug just might be one of the newest scholars. Yesterday in the mail I received from my Aunt the My Father's World Kindergarten Materials. As I looked through it today it seems very feasible to do. Some of the items would be over his head of course, but it would be a nice structure to work off of. At the end of the month I maybe able to say we have started school!
