Anniversary and the Bow Experiment

Sooo, today was our three-year anniversary! I'll try to spare you the mushiness. :) It really seems like Danny and I have been together forever already. We met in the summer of 2001 -- I was 18 (he was 21). We started dating when I was 19. We dated for a good while before we got engaged in 2006. We were married six months later. And here we are, 2009, and we have such a wonderful life together. Perfect? Absolutely not. But it's ours. And we love it. :)

So, what did we do today? We woke up and exchanged cards/gifts, then went to lunch. After that, we went on what turned into a scavenger hunt! Remind me to never wait until mid-July to get a swimsuit. Not for me (I'm going to attempt to fit into mine from last year -- ha!), but for Mo. We went to at least 10 places and they were all sold out of her size. We finally called the OshKosh store, and they had some left on clearance. Thankfully we ended up with two.

What's up with "the Bow Experiment," you ask? A few days ago, I got to thinking, "Okay, Morgan's seven months old now. Time to girl her up a little." We've gotten this compliment a couple of times: "Ohhh, he's soo cute!" No, this one was my favorite: "He's a big boy just like his daddy!" LOL! Of course I was never offended by these incidents -- I'd think the same thing if I saw a bald baby in a neutral-colored stroller, and that baby looked a whole lot more like daddy than mama...

Anyway, they probably would have known better if the baby girl had a bow or something on her head. And you may have noticed that Morgan doesn't wear anything on her head. It's because I LOVE bald baby girls! It's just something so pure about a little bald head baby girl in a dress (yeah, I know I'm weird)...But now that Mo's a little older, I figure a bow here and there won't hurt.

So, as I'm going into these stores searching for swimsuits, I'm also looking for bows. But I never saw the type of bow I "envisioned" for her. I've run across some cute little ones and some really cute big ones...but I think the little ones would look weird on Morgan's head -- my child has a nice-sized head -- and then the big ones would almost hide her bald head that I love so much! So after I didn't quite see what I wanted, I decided I would sort of make the kind of bow I wanted using accessory pieces from different places (I'm a very picky person to have so little creativity).

So, bow attempt #1: As you can see, Mama picked up a band that was too big for baby's head (didn't think that was possible)!

Bow attempt #2: This band fits a lot better, but Baby Girl was NOT happy.

The back of this band irritated her, I think, so I've gotta find a way to fix that.

In the meantime, she pulls it off...

And decides to eat it.
So, yeah, the bow experiment...Not sure what made me think that starting to put bows on a a baby girl at seven months was a good idea. She knows it's there, and she wants to play with it. So, yeah, I'm quite the genius.

I hope everyone is enjoying their week! :)
