christmas {with} the blog babies


top:
bottom:

have i ever mentioned how many amazing girls i've met through blogging?  i've formed so many real friendships & have gotten to know so many other moms that have now become some of my closest friends.  seriously.  i love my bloggy friends.

so this year, a few of us decided to do a little gift swapping.  ya know, in the spirit of christmas & all.  we drew names & paired up the babies for some gift giving & getting.

parker was lucky enough to be drawn by rauri!  if you aren't familiar with rauri's mom's blog then i'm not sure you've ever been on the internet.  seriously.  everyone {loves} chelsey, the paper mama, right?

anywho, chelsey & rauri knew that parker has a thing for sock monkeys... his face lights up every time he sees his sock monkey & he's been known to roll around & play with his sock monkey for... well, minutes.  that's basically hours in baby time though, right? 

so rauri's grandma knitted this hat, just for parker!  look at how much he loves it.  words don't describe.

{click to enlarge.  no really, it's totally worth it}

and as if that wasn't enough, she also included this super cute shirt for him too.  complete with a little sock monkey patch that she knitted on the butt.  what's cuter than little sock monkeys on babies butts?  not much.





the gifting didn't stop there.  chelsey is also uh-mazing with photoshop & sent p-ray this picture of him exploring his wild side.

at least he thought of me when he was getting all tatted up. 


oh chelsey & rauri, parker loves his gifts!  thank you so so so much for giving parker such amazing & thoughtful presents.  you guys are the best!

parker got to pick out a gift for corbin... check that out here.

  4. I'm not sure it's even possible for me to express in words the cuteness that is Parker in his sock monkey hat. At least not without using some pretty unladylike words :D

    And I'm dying to have Chelsey tat up little Pie...even more so now after seeing Parker!!

  7. That has got to be the cutest hat I've ever seen! I tried to crochet a hat once. It ended up being a large circle-shaped potholder :) Props to Grandma for an amazing job!

  19. You may have one of the cutest babies EVER! I don't know how you make it through you day without wanting to squeeze and squish him the whole time. You should totally go with the mustache tat on the finger!

  21. Can I just say, that if I were invited to be among this group of mamas, I would probably pass out or throw up from pure awe and a little intimidation? Any ONE of you lovely ladies could elicit this response from me, so put all of you together? I'd lose it....

    P-Ray and Henry would be fast friends: Henry is a crazy sock monkey lover, too! And can I just say, the hat made for Parker is so amazing! He just slays me with his cuteness.
