Tabs and His Protégé

Published in: Daily Photo

Everyone in our family takes turns watching Connor Claire, even her big brother Tabs! 🙂

Although, to be honest, sometimes he’s not too thrilled when I ask him to babysit…

I guess he’s got places to go and people to see? Whatevs.

Because he’s all about multitasking, Tabs takes his responsibility as an opportunity to teach his protégé everything he knows about kitty super modeling. Currently, they’re working on a patented Tabs pose called “the distant disinterested stare.”

She’s getting pretty good at it!

Eyelash Jackpot!

When Connor Claire was still in my tum, I hoped and prayed that she’d come into this world safe, sound and healthy…and with her daddy’s lashes, LOL!

I know, so silly. But El Hub’s lashes are one of the reasons I fell in love with him (they’re so long, lush and curly!), and I really, really wanted Connor to inherit them. And dagnabbit, she actually did!

See the cute curl and lovely length? Yeah, she definitely did *not* get my lashes, which are short, straight and completely uninteresting.

Nothing Says I Love You Like…

Published in: Daily Photo

…a shirt with the number and name of your husband’s favorite player on his favorite team, and a matching onesie for his future baby daughter! At least I think so.

I gave El Hub this Draymond Green Golden State Warriors shirt (they’re our local basketball team here in the Bay Area) for Valentine’s Day, and I swear, the man had tears in his eyes.

A little back story: El Hub looooooves Draymond Green (“He plays with so much heart!”). I’d even go so far as to call him El Hub’s current man crush, haha!

BG also got her dad a V-day gift — a matching Warriors onesie, which she plans to wear when they watch the playoffs together…assuming the Warriors make the playoffs this year.

If you’re in love with a sports fan, next time you need a gift for your guy (or girl) but are completely stumped, think about sports apparel. It was a big hit in our house.

I found the onesie and the tee with Draymond Green’s name and number on it in the NBA online store. I initially also intended to get a matching jersey for Tabs, but I couldn’t find one that I thought he’d like (haha), which leads me to ask a very pressing question… WHY IS IT SO HARD TO FIND A BASKETBALL JERSEY FOR YOUR CAT?! It really shouldn’t be this hard, people.

Carter’s Baby Clothes and Possible Future Outfits of the Day?

Published in: Daily Photo

carters gowns 1000

I’ve been advised by well-meaning friends and family members to refrain from buying too many baby outfits and clothes, despite the powerful urge, because clothes are usually what friends and family end up gifting ya…and everything ends up with poop and spit-up on it anyway, buuuuuuut Carter’s was having an online sale last week (it might still be going on), and when I saw these cute clothes — gah! — I couldn’t resist.

I just want a few newborn baby pics of BG (Baby Girl) wearing things that I picked out for her, since I know there will come a time in the not-too-distant future when she’ll refuse to let me dress her.

*Tears* I know, I’m getting ahead of myself… All I can say is that I’m extra hormonal, and the thought of her eventually not needing her mommy’s help is making me weepy. 🙁

Anyways, thanks to the gals who recommended these baby gowns with the elastic at the bottom. I never knew such a thing existed, and I think they’ll come in really handy for middle-of-the-night changes.

Carter’s also had matching hats, mittens and teeny, tiny baby socks (!), so of course I had to go there…

I also got BG a few of these one-piece outfits with snaps (Carter’s calls them “Sleep and Plays”) because they were the babiest of the baby clothes, LOL!

Yes, the baby outfits that look like baby-sized versions of grownup clothing are cute and all, but I also want her to look like an actual…ya know…baby, for as long as possible.

If she cooperates (and if Tabs allows her to share the spotlight), maybe she’ll even star in a few Outfit of the Day posts. 🙂

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. I’m sorry that I haven’t been posting as much as usual this week, but I’ve been extra tired and achy (my back and my lady parts, especially!). This whole growing a tiny human thing is pretty exhausting…
