two little birds

Even though I didn't know the gender, I did buy SOME baby clothes before delivery day. Only problem is I didn't really buy any newborn clothes. Minor detail. I didn't realize how small babies were. Like tiny birds. So Miriam has been living in some onsies I was given at my shower & the little t-shirts she came home with from the hospital. Oh well. Not that stylin' but until we master this diapering thing it's probably for the best that we're not staining fancy clothes. Who knew that such tiny babies could make such a big mess?! Surprise, surprise, hubs is becoming a diaper pro. He holds his nose and makes a funny fuss, but I know he doesn't mind. And he's got the swaddle down. Those little wiggly arms and legs give me trouble, but thank goodness he's quick on the draw. Anyway, we have two new friends around here. A momma owl and baby owl from my dad. I love them!

A friend of mine told me she sang Bob Marley to her baby so when Miriam cries, me and the owls start singing and hooting… "Singin' sweet songs, of melodies pure and true, Sayin', This is my message to you. Singin' Don't worry, 'bout a thing, 'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."



  1. Love the owls. And, honestly, I think there's hardly anything cuter than a baby in a plain white onesie or those little wrap-around snap shirts from the hospital. Certainly makes the diaper changes easier too!

  2. such sweet birds :) and such a sweet husband you have to help out!
