It's another GIVEAWAY!!
(the hat--not the cute kid. And yes, I put a baby girl hat on my toddler boy. Models don't come cheap these days, so I have to take what I can get)
We reconnected over the past couple of years, thanks to the Internet and our kids, but I hadn't seen her since high school (like, when Seinfeld was still running on prime time, and we carried portable CD players around), so when I found out she was coming down to Hotlanta, I made sure we got together.
Mama said she was going to bring down a crochet project she just whipped up (teach me please!) for the sake of being uber crafty and generous. And she had a stellar idea: have it be part of a giveaway on my blog! It's an adorable baby blanket and two hats--a newborn hat, and a slightly older baby hat (see "Felicity" above). Utilizing runners' lingo, I would call this a girl's "kit." And I'd like to call it the Girl's Juicy Watermelon Kit. I would say the white hat is newborn size, and the pink is a few months old (I know, "few" is so relative, but my boys' heads were like 8 millionth percentile at 5 months old, so I like to remain intentionally vague with this kind of stuff.) The blanket is the perfect size for those initial weeks of tummy time (as long as you don't have one of those "spitter uppers" or "explosive poopers," then I might opt for a less coveted blanket), and also for car seat draping as it would just about cover a little baby girls' body, and not have to be crammed into the sides, or dragged on the floor.
As cute as Felix looks in the hat, it's a little small--and let's be honest--there has to be an adorable baby girl out there (or soon to be) that would look a lot cuter.
Although, this would make an excellent baby gift, so even if you are not in possession of a little baby girl in your arms or in your belly, I'd consider vying for it as a great baby shower gift!
Since Mama Stacy was so generous in making the Juicy Watermelon Kit for some lucky baby out there (and rumor has it, it only took her a week!)--I figured there was only one way to run the giveaway:
What are YOU going to do in the next week for someone else, for no other reason than to make someone's day?
Rules: Once you execute this random act of kindness (RAK), come back here on the blog, and post a comment letting me know what you have done. And get this--as some extra kindness from me to you, I'll let you post up to 3 RAKs until the giveaway concludes next Sunday night at 11:11pm (June 5th). (Why 11:11pm? Why not?!?). I'll announce the winner and his/her RAK(s), and then send off the loot within a day! Please provide me with your e-mail address if I don't have it so I can contact you if you win!
Some more pictures to get you inspired...
Oh, and to get him upright, I put him on the potty. Yup. It's the one that sits in our master bathroom, unused, and typically a warehouse for toy cars during our morning play sessions before school.
At least "Sean" doesn't ask for much.
Alrighty folks! Lemme hear about your RAKs.
In the words of Miles: "On your mark...den set...GO!"
