On Halloween Eve...

Sunday, October 30, 2011

Tonight before bed, I took these pics of Holden in his halloween jammies. Poor baby has caught the funk that I have had now for two weeks and he is not feeling well at all. I ended up at the doc last week with a sinus infection and tomorrow I will be taking him. Why is it that our babies have to get sick??
 He wasn't so crazy about taking any pics at first...
 Layin on Baby Rylan
 Then he just kept saying "eese" "eese" {cheese}...

 and posing! This crazy child of mine : )

 So yes, maybe there is a million pics of my sweet boy but I am soaking him all in since he won't be my only baby for much longer! Tomorrow we hope to take him trick or treating at least to a few places just to say he went so we will see how that goes. : )

Rylan's Bedding

Monday, October 17, 2011

 Months ago when I started looking at baby bedding {even before I knew if we were having a boy or girl} I fell in love with this adorable bedding from Polka Tot Designs. I loved the idea of doing an animal print like this for a boys room and loved the baby blue and white since Holden's room was and is very bright{which I still love} I knew that I would never spend the way too much money that a website like this sells things for so after I found out I was having another boy, I set out to find the blue giraffe print fabric first so I could just make it myself. Well that sounds a lot easier than it turned out to be. For MONTHS I looked for the light baby blue giraffe fabric and never found it in a store and only found it online for $10+ a yard. I'm way to cheap frugal to pay that much for fabric.

So I started looking for other light blue fabrics that I might want to use and never really found the exact print that my Mom would say "screamed" at me. So a few weekends ago Jack, Holden and I had some errands to run and one of them was to Joann's fabric to just see if I could find some samples of something to possibly use for Rylan's bedding. And this is what we found:

I need to add right here that I found it for $5 a yard. Thankyouverymuch! Ha!
Love this so much and I had planned on trying to find a grey and white polka dot fabric to match but couldn't find what I wanted. So off to Hobby Lobby{my fav place EVER} to see what they had to match. And this is what we found to match...

I think this is going to look so good when done! Last week Mom and I went out and got all the fabric that I was going to need to make everything and I can not wait to get started on it! It's going to be just like the pic above with the wavy fabric as the bumper{on the outside} white sheet... maybe... and black with white polka dot crib skirt. HOPEFULLY this weekend I can get it made! Jack painted his room grey yesterday to match and it is going to look sooo good when everything is done!
