Allow me to introduce you to the Little Oyster's new pals: a fox and a cat. Luke is calling the stuffed cat "Udders". I'll let you figure out that one. The fox is yet to be named, though I am more than open to suggestions.
I told my mom that making stuffed toys is a nice way to bide the time until the baby's arrival. But then we decided that the baby will probably really like a pile of stuffed animals, and it's entirely possible that he/she knows that the longer he/she waits me out, the more toys he/she will amass. Therefore maybe I need a new plan.
So today is another hot day, and we are brainstorming creative ways to stay cool and keep my feet elevated, while simultaneously getting stuff done. I tried washing some dishes but sliced my finger on the cheese grater. Then I thought I might put some safety locks on some cabinets around here but got annoyed with that whole process. I should probably vacuum, but that will inevitably make me sweaty and puffy. SO I think we've decided to stop with the nesting for today and head to a creek where we can lounge, read, and wade. And maybe afterward I can talk Luke into some ice cream. I think that will do the trick.
