I knew Owen was big and his feet have always looked fairly large on his tiny little body, but I didn't know HOW big his feet were. Becca gave me a lot of socks that she had saved from when her boys were little; and we got a bunch of socks at my baby showers. But, right from the first couple of weeks they were snug on him. Yesterday we went to Babies R Us. One of the pairs of shoes we were looking at said the size was 9-12 months. We put them next to his feet. They would've just fit and he isn't even two months old yet! We bought some socks that were supposed to fit 6-12 months. They fit him, but the tops are super tight around his calves and ankles. He is such a big boy! Our 2 month doctor's visit is on the 8th of May, so we'll see how big he's getting then!
I think I'm going to start a new feature here at Fried Okra called Friday poll where I will be asking my readers to weigh in on some very important (or totally superficial) things.
The first installment of my Friday poll: What do you think of Austin's facial hair in this photo?
Random thoughts for the morning
• I hate it when I have to cancel things.
• Kidney infections suck (especially when you have your second one in less than 7 weeks).
• Our new refrigerator is being delivered tonight. I can't wait to get it!
• I hate it when people move away, although I understand it if the opportunity exists.
• It is so weird to be talking to people I went to high school with again... weird, but kind of nice.
• I have too much work, too little time, and I am wasting time posting this list.
The difference between dogs and cats:
Cats will leave little piles of regurgitated cat food all over your driveway. Dogs will try to eat the little piles of regurgitated cat food that are all over your driveway.
Babies smell soooooo much better than dogs!!!
(even when they're stinky)
Days of Our Lives
If you had amnesia and you started to remember that the man you are married to is actually an abusive jerk who is drugging you to keep you from remembering what an abusive jerk he is, why would you keep going to him alone and telling him you remember this? He's just going to drug you again. Seriously, what a boring story line. (And she's supposed to be a psychiatrist)
it isn't May yet. I was designing a banner that I was going to upload in May, but before I knew it, I had already changed my template colors and uploaded the thing. Then, I thought, "Oh yeah, it's April 24th." But, I'm too lazy to change it back just for 6 days, so live with it.
