Baby Deux - Weeks 21 and 22

I think I'm in denial about how quickly this pregnancy is going by compared to my last pregnancy.  I mean, how the hell is he the size of a spaghetti squash already!?

Since I last checked in my back has gotten significantly better.  It is nowhere near "healed" but it's tolerable.  Having The Sailor take the week off to let me rest has done wonders.  Fingers crossed it doesn't go to hell again once The Sailor goes back to work on Monday.

I'm tired a lot of the time still (I'm blaming the back pain though - being in pain is exhausting) and I get nauseous after I eat anything like 99% of the time, but for some reason I've suddenly started getting excited.  Maybe because we're well past the halfway point, maybe because we're making more concrete plans for the nursery and everything, or maybe because I feel the little guy moving all.the.time.  Whatever the reason, I've really started getting excited despite having another miserable pregnancy!  And when I see stuff like this and realize I'm already 6 months pregnant I get even more excited!
Since I last checked in I had an appointment with the OB office on base.  BabyDeux is doing awesome; moving like crazy and his heart rate is great and he's measuring right on track.  I, on the other hand, ended up having an EKG because my heart rate was through the roof (over 200 bpm) but my blood pressure was super low.  EKG came back normal so they're attributing it to the stress on my body from the constant back pain.  Hopefully as my back gets better my heart will, too.

The other day I felt the little guy change positions (not just move, but like full on roll over) for the first time.  I, personally, hate that shit.  It makes me feel like an alien host.  I wish I had gotten a picture though because he was distinctly pushing my stomach out momentarily ::shudder::

And, oh yeah, I admit it...I effing love yoga pants.  Yoga pants or a long shirt with leggings are my go to these days.  I really just don't like maternity jeans, they continuously fall down so I'm constantly pulling them up which isn't attractive.  And with fold over yoga pants I can just not fold them over and it's like wearing full panel pants!  Which, since my belly exploded over night, is awesome!
^^totally regretted wearing Wes later that day.  He was having a meltdown and The Sailor had ran out and he kept grabbing his wraps and signing please so I couldn't help but put him up there...but it killed my back and I ended up in bed at like 6:30 that night.

That's all for now...I've been scoping out cribs and once we get that we'll start really putting the nursery together so that will be a lot of fun posts.  Until then you'll just have to deal with my super boring pregnancy updates!

Early Potty Learning

The last full day that W was in diapers was September 9, 2013 making him 17 months and 9 days old when he graduated from diapers.  **I don't like the term "potty trained" especially since he is so young; it just has so much pressure along with it.  I just say he's out of diapers when he's awake since he does still wear - and need - a diaper for naps and overnight.**

People are so surprised when they hear that he is out of diapers at his age.  And they either ask me what kind of voodoo magic I used or just attribute it to W being "mature."  I honestly believe most babies could potty train this early if they're given the opportunity to.  If you have a young baby and want to start them on the road to "early potty learning" this is what we did...

I got W a potty when he was about 9 months old.  With BabyDeux I'll probably start even sooner; as soon as he can sit up on his own I'll let him "use" a potty.  When it was convenient for me (as in if I was going to the bathroom, when W was brushing his teeth, when the tub was filling up, etc) I would put him on his potty with absolutely no expectation for him to do anything it was just him getting to sit on a cool new seat with his pants down.
First time on the potty!

I think a key to this is the fact that when I would use the toilet I would bring him with me and put him on his potty.  If I was peeing I would simply tell him, "Mommy is peeing in her potty because she doesn't wear diapers, if you want you could pee on your potty, too" and if I was pooping I would give him the same general explanation.  So he knew what he toilet was for.  It was actually the second day I ever put him on a potty that he pooped!  And I didn't celebrate, I didn't give him a prize, I just said, "wow, you're pooping on your potty instead of a diaper!  What a big boy."  If he went in his diaper  didn't get upset (obviously, he wasn't even a year old yet) I would just simply explain while I changed him, "you peed/pooped in your diaper, I'm going to put a dry diaper on you.  Isn't that more comfortable?"

Within a month he was almost exclusively pooping on the potty.  I rarely changed poopy diapers for the month of February.  It was awesome.

Then we flew home to visit my family at the beginning of March and we both got sick and he was nursing non-stop (so his poop completely changed) and he totally freaked out about the potty.  ::whompwhomp::  I was a little heartbroken, but hey - he could't walk how could I expect him to regularly use the potty?

After that I would still put him on the potty but I never pushed it.  He had sorta lost interest in it.  Then The Sailor got back from deployment, and I got pregnant, and every time I would put him on his little potty he would just stand up since he could walk.  I got to the point where I thought he was gonna be in diapers for a loooooong time since once BabyDeux got here there was no way I was going to be able to potty train a toddler while caring for a newborn.

Then I got the idea to try and put him on the big potty (with a topper on it) so he couldn't just walk away....and it worked!  This was probably a month before a decided to ditch the diapers.  I started putting him on it whenever it was convenient for me again; sometimes he would go, sometimes he wouldn't.  Then one day he walked up to me, handed me his potty topper, and signed please.  As soon as I put him on the potty he peed and I accepted he was ready.

I picked a date to ditch the diapers about two weeks in the future to mentally prepare myself and made him some training pants.  I started offering him the potty regularly throughout the day instead of just when it was convenient for me and as long as I offered it every two hours or so he'd have clean diapers all day!

I originally planned to do a "three day potty camp" where you essentially camp out in the kitchen (for easy clean up) and pump your kid full of salty snacks so they drink (and thus pee) a lot and essentially dedicate three whole days only to using the potty.  But, because of my back we lasted about 2 hours in the kitchen then just went back to normal life in the house just W was naked for easy potty access.

And he's been out of diapers while he's awake ever since.

For the most part at home he's completely naked or just in undies.  When we leave the house he's in undies and cloths.  If we're leaving during nap time I bring a diaper to put him in knowing he'll pass out on the car ride home (since he does still wear diapers for naps and night time).  He's had two accidents in clothes - one he was asleep in the car seat with The Sailor (he passed out and peed, really can't hold it against him) the other was at a birthday party and he started to wet his pants but finished on a toilet.  He's also had a bunch of starts of accidents at home, but he's generally naked so I just swoop him up and toss him on the toilet for him to finish but those have become few and far between.
Chillin in his undies
So did I get my 17 month old out of diapers?  Early introduction.  It was never hard for us to do, honestly.  Like I said, in the early days I never went out of my way and he essentially let me know when he was ready to ditch the diapers.  If you introduce a potty early you will know when your child is ready.  Just trust in that.

I also do give some credit to the fact that we cloth diaper.  Since disposables do such a good job keeping babies dry-feeling they don't really know when they've peed, whereas with cloth it's easy for them to tell.

Since that is more than enough information I'll do a follow up post with tools that helped us along the way,, and as usual if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask!

Reupholstering Tips and Tricks - AKA First big nursery project!!

Yeah...check that shit out^^  Coolest Dr. Seuss nursery chair everrrrr, right?!?

So, I wish I could give you a step by step guide detailing exactly how to reupholster a chair - but I can't.  The fact of the matter is every chair is different and that makes the process of stripping it down and reupholstering it different.  The general idea of it is simple - carefully pull off all the fabric, use that fabric as a template to cut out the new fabric, then put the new fabric on just like you took the old fabric off.  Easy peasy, right?

Well here are a few tips and tricks for you...

  • Give yourself plenty of time.  I spent hours just pulling out staples.  This is not a process that is going to be completed in a day.  Maybe if you have a few people and a lot of patience you could finish it in a weekend, but I recommend spreading it out over a bunch of days so you don't give yourself carpal tunnel.
  • I used a flat head screw driver and needle-nose pliers to pull out all the staples, it worked quite well.
  • Save everything you pull off!!  Seriously!  Every scrap of cardboard, random spikey thing, and piece of fabric.  Saving everything will make it a million times easier to reassemble it.
  • Label everything.  Where it goes on the chair, what order you pulled it off in, which part of it pulled up first, etc.  I just used a sharpie and wrote right on the panels where they went and all the details that would help me successfully replace it with new fabric.
  • Don't expect perfection.  Seriously, this is true of all my projects.  If I wanted or needed it to be perfect there's probably someone out there I can pay hundreds of dollars to do it for me and there's a reason why they charge so much - this shit is time consuming!  There are some snags in my fabric from me stapling wrong and the back of it is a little wonky (I didn't have quite enough fabric but whatever...who's going to be looking at the back??)
So here's what you need - 
  • A cheap piece of old furniture that hopefully was built well but just needs a facelift (you don't want the frame of the chair to be falling apart, just the fabric!)
  • Flat head screwdriver and needle-nose pliers (to remove staples)
  • Upholstery fabric - no not waste your time and get fabric that isn't heavy enough to be considered upholstery will fall apart and then you will have wasted hours of your life for nothing.  I did, however, decide I could use a non-upholstery fabric on the parts that won't get much wear and tear and I think it was a safe decision (the blue Lorax tree print is just normal cotton, not upholstery weight fabric).  I calculated how much I would need after I ripped off all the fabric.
  • A staple gun.  I have a fancy one my Dad got me for my birthday (after I reupholstered my kitchen chairs with just a hammer and upholstery tacks he decided I needed a staple gun) but you could use one of those old school plain ones (like this) - it would just take longer.
  • A seam ripper to disassemble the cushions 
  • And if you're like me...a hot glue gun.  Yes, I hot glued some parts, but I'll never tell you which ones (muahahahahaha) <--not sure why I'm evil laughing about that
I got the chair used from someone on base and it actually reclined (the foot part doesn't pop out, it just reclines) but not very well.  The Sailor actually re-did all the mechanical bits so now it reclines smoothly.  It cost $20.  Then I spent about $50 on fabrics (from and  

There is some sewing involved to make the covers for the cushions (just like the rest of the chair you pull the cushion apart - with a seam ripper - and use the pieces as a pattern for the new cover).  For this chair I was able to save the zipper on the bottom cushion but the back cushion was originally attached to the chair itself.  I decided it would be easiest for me to make it another cover so I had to get a long zipper for that which also cost me a few bucks. 

I would say I spent between 25 and 30 hours on the chair in all spread out over a bunch of days over two weeks.  But, I'm absolutely in love with it and it cost us less than $75 in all!

After I finished reupholstering it instead of putting back on the feet The Sailor turned it into a rocking chair!  He used scrap wood and the screws that were originally holding on the feet so again, no cost to us.  It took two tries to get the curve right for a rocking chair but still didn't take him much time at all.

So now it reclines and rocks and is gorgeous.  It will be the perfect visual centerpiece for BabyDeux's Dr. Seuss nursery and it will be mighty comfy for all those middle of the night nursing sessions in my future!

Baby Deux - Weeks 18, 19, and 20

I really do suck as a pregnancy blogger, haha.  Especially since as I'm typing this I'm 21w3d.  Oops, it's my blog I'll do what I want to.

So yeah, two Thursdays ago I did something to my back.  At this point the doctors think I ruptured a disc in my lower spine but we can't do any imaging to properly diagnose it since I'm pregnant.

I'm in so.much.pain. I've spent the better part of the last 11 days in tears or on the verge of tears. I can't be upright (sitting or standing) for more than about a half hour before the pressure/pain in my lower back actually makes me start seeing stars and eventually start to black out.

I'm angry at my body for failing me.
I'm angry at my insurance for not covering chiropractic care. It was the only thing that made me feel any better last week but we don't have the money for me to keep going.
I'm angry at the bored house wives who were supposed to be my friends who have been talking behind my back accusing me of faking the injury for attention.
I'm angry at my husband's squadron for giving him crap about asking to take leave because apparently the jets he works on need him more than I do.
And most of all I'm angry at myself for not being able to take care of my toddler the way he deserves. Yesterday morning I was laying on the floor trying to play with him and he kept handing me toys and signing please, but I could barely move. I can barely pick him up. I might have to put him back in diapers even though he's doing so well potty training because he only likes to go on the big potty and I'm struggling to lift him up onto it as often as he needs to go.
Not to mention I hate the fact that I can't go a full day without taking any pain killers despite the fact that I know they aren't great for my unborn baby. I try so desperately to just suck it up, but there's only so much pain I can handle.

Now that I've gotten that off my chest I can talk about some of the more fun things that have been going on the past 3 weeks!

We have started clearing out our third bedroom!  We sold the large pieces of furniture and I've started figuring out where everything else (all my crafting stuff) will end up.  And we sold our old stroller (the Baby Jogger City Mini - which I loved, but only works for one kid) and bought a used Britax B-Ready which we can get a second seat for so W and BabyDeux can both ride in it.  The only problem with it was the previous kid had taken a bite out of the foam on the bar, so I sewed a "sleeve" for it out of The Sailor's uniform material and embroidered our last name on it.  I actually really like it, so I'm kinda glad the last kid chomped on it!
I also picked up some cute Dr. Seuss stuff from the cheapie section at Target to be used in the Nursery.  I'll probably cut out and frame the bags ($0.50 each) and use the plates as part of a DIY mobile ($2 each - they're holographic).
We had our anatomy scan and everything looks perfect.  BabyDeux is super active!!!

I got a men's shirt from Goodwill for $2.99 that I grad-dyed and am slightly obsessed with...
I sold one of my wraps to buy a wrap specifically for BabyDeux!  I've mentioned before that bamboo blends are super soft and great for newborns, so I bought Oscha Starry Night Midnight which is 70/30 cotton/bamboo.  I plan on grad dyeing it before he gets here, probably a deep blue.
And I finished my first big project for the nursery!  I plan on doing a post specifically for it, but here's a teaser for what it is with some pictures we took to celebrate hitting the halfway point with this pregnancy...
Me with my cane - yes, my back is so bad I need a cane to get around by the end of the day

Say hi to your baby brother, W!

Not much else to report...fingers crossed for me that my back starts getting better soon, ok?

I need YOUR help!!!

Remember back in Babywearing 101 when I mentioned I had never used a pod carrier before?  Well, I entered a design contest with one of my favorite conversion artists to win a free pod conversion and I'm one of the finalists!

All I need you to do is go to their Facebook page and "like" ^that^ picture!!  THAT'S IT! If you ever want me to return the favor I would be more than happy to :-)

While you're there be sure to check out some of the amazing carriers!  If you ever decide to order be sure to let them know Amanda Hinson sent you!

Thanks again!

PS - I'm trying to put together a pregnancy update (weeks 18,19,20) but I seriously hurt my back and can only sit up straight for so long.  It'll be coming soon though, promise!

Wear Your Baby Wednesday - Newborn Ring Sling TUTORIAL

As I promised in my ring sling tutorial post, I made a newborn in a ring sling tutorial after my good friend had her baby! (Be sure to check that post out if you haven't already, it has some great safety and comfort tips as well as a video to help you properly thread your sling.  Also be sure to check out my "Babywearing Safety" post which has a link to a whole slew of information specifically about how to safely wear a newborn.)

A few things first...

Some people will tell you to wear newborns with their legs in the carrier, but this puts unhealthy pressure on their ankles and feet so I do not recommend it.  In the video you'll see it is completely possible to safely wear even the newest of newborns with their feet out.

You'll notice in the video before I pull the bottom rail up between the baby and I to create a good "seat" I actually pull most of the fabric up along his back.  You do not want a lot of fabric bunched up in your baby's knees especially with a newborn because it can inhibit circulation.

Newborn-wearing isn't easy.  Their legs are tiny and they're floppy and have no head control.  But if you have a baby who insists on being held 24/7 it can save a new parent's sanity.  Just keep practicing and it will get easier.  Remember to always practice with a happy baby!  The best time to start trying a new carrier with any age baby is when they have a fresh diaper and are freshly fed.  The happier they are the easier it will be.

Newborns don't have any neck control and the muscles in their throat are still barely developed.  You have to make sure they don't go chin to chest to prevent suffocation.  This is true for any scenario (in a swing, car seat, anywhere) not just a baby carrier.

You'll notice I'm using the ring sling that I dyed and sewed for my friend in the video :-)

Semi DIY Cloth Training Pants TUTORIAL

We have done a form of "early potty learning" with W that for the most part has been really relaxed.  Essentially we just put him on a potty whenever we feel like it/have the time to/he expresses interest in it.  It has recently gotten to the point where if I remember to ask him if he would like to use the potty at regular intervals (and since I'm pregnant and pee all the time anyway it has been easier to remember to also offer it to him) he can go a whole day with only dirtying a diaper during naps.  So, I plan on trying out the three day potty training method (more on that after we actually do it) starting tomorrow!  Hopefully at the end of three days the only time he'll be in a diaper is for naps and overnight!

The potty is so FUN!
Since he is only 17 months old and can't actually ask (verbally, he does have physical cues) to use the bathroom I wanted to get him cloth training pants which are essentially reinforced undies.  Some have a waterproof layer, others do not.  A friend of mine recommended Hannah Andersson training unders, but oh-my-effing-golly-gosh, I'm not spending $26 (before tax and shipping) on only 3 pairs of freaking underwear.  I looked into some other, less expensive options (like Kawaii baby) but seriously dude - they're just underwear with extra layers in the crotch, I'm not spending a small fortune on them!

So obviously I decided to make my own.

There are tutorials all over Pinterest for using a pair of undies to make a pattern and adding extra layers to the crotch section, but all I could think while reading them is, "why don't you just keep the underwear you buy intact {as opposed to deconstructing it to make a pattern} and just sew extra stuff in the crotch??"  So that's exactly what I did.


  • Underwear - I got these from KMart.  They're still a little big on W, but they don't really make underwear in infant sizes so we'll deal. They're $13 for 7 pairs, or $1.86 each 
  • Some sort of absorbent material.  You could even use old t-shirts (you'd probably need like 4 layers if you go that route) but I chose to use pre-fold diapers that I had originally used as burp cloths for W.  These are the ones I have and with a pack of four you could make eight training pants.  Those are $6, but you could make 8 training pants with the whole pack so $.75 per training pant but this part could actually be free if you just used old t-shirts you had on hand. 
  • Waterproof material (optional).  I had left over from an old project, but this is what I used.  Be sure to use a coupon and you'll only need about a 1/4 yard (so you'd spend $1.95 to make a bunch of training pants).  I can't say exactly how much it'll cost per training pant, but it isn't much.
  • Parchment paper to make a pattern
  • Permanent marker
  • Pins
  • Sewing machine and thread
First you'll want to make your pattern for your insert.  To do this I turned a pair of the underwear inside out (after washing and drying them in case they shrink) and pinned a piece of parchment paper to them.

 Then I outlined the crotch area.
 And unpinned it from the undies
 It was a little wonky and not symmetrical, so I picked the side I liked more and used that to make a more symmetrical pattern (I folded a piece of parchment paper in half, lined up the good side of the original pattern, and cut out the new pattern).  The original is on the left and the one I actually used is on the right...
 With the pre-fold diapers the center section has more layers of fabric.  So I figured I could use the middle section for one, and double up the outer sections for another (making two pairs of training pants with each pre-fold).  So you have to cut the pre-fold into thirds.
 I used the pattern I made to cute out the waterproof PUL but the pre-fold sections weren't quite wide enough.  So I just sewed the pre-fold material down to the PUL...
 ...Then I trimmed the extra pre-fold material off.  I'm not concerned that it doesn't quite reach the edges of where I initially wanted it to be.

You'll notice I doubled up the pre-fold in the front section.  The pre-fold is more than long enough and since boys need extra absorbency in the very front (since they have penises) I just went with it.  It isn't completely necessary, but why waist the extra absorbent layers, right?
 Then you pin your insert into your undies (obviously with the waterproof PUL against the actual underwear)
 And you sew it down.  This step can be a little awkward, but it's totally possible!  Just take your time.

And you're done!!!

Like I said before, these undies are a little big on W (they're size 2T/3T - the smallest size I could find) but they work just fine.  They obviously won't save his outfit if he has a full on accident, but they'll definitely minimize the damage.

Wear Your Baby Wednesday - Babywearing 201 - Woven Wrap Basics

Woven Wrap - (as defined by, well, me) a length of woven fabric - either machine or handwoven - that can be used as a baby carrier.  It can be made of cotton, linen, bamboo, hemp, silk, wool, or really any natural fibers (and any combination of those fibers).  Since it is woven, it is not stretchy, but depending on the manner of the weaving technique will have varying degrees of diagonal stretch (versus an interlock fabric which will stretch horizontally and vertically and in turn is much less supportive).  The ways in which you can use it to carry a baby (or an adult if you really wanted to) are essentially unlimited since you can tie it so many different ways.

Ok, let's start with some super basics.  Wraps come in different sizes.  You can do different carries with different sizes and it's really personal preference that determines which size is "best."
Size 2 - 2.7 meters
Size 3 - 3.1 meters
Size 4 - 3.6 meters
Size 5 - 4.1 meters
Size 6 - 4.6 meters
Size 7 - 5.1 meters

So what size do you need?  "They" say the average person can do a majority of the well known carries out there with a size 6.  If you are particularly petite you might want a size 5 and if you are particularly big you might want a size 7.  Wraps referred to as "shorties" are generally size 2 or 3.  I would not recommend trying to start out with a shortie.  Generally speaking you can only do single pass carries (a carry where the fabric only goes across your baby once) with a shortie and they're far less forgiving than longer carries.  Once you get confident doing long carries then you can start trying shorter carries.

Wear Your Baby and The Babywearer both have really good lists of which carries can generally be performed with which sizes.  Another great resource is YouTube.  Just start searching for "woven wrap size X" and see what pops up!  That is truly how I learned to wrap.

What different brand wraps are there?  I'm pretty sure it would be impossible for me to create a complete list of wrap brands, but here is a brain dump of the ones I know of.  Natibaby, Bara Barn, JumpSac Baby, Didymos, Dolcino, Diva Milano, Colimacon et Cie, Ellevill, Storchenwiege, Girasol, Easycare, KoKaDi, Hoppediz, Wrapsody, BB Slen, je port mon bebe, Linuschka, Pavo Textiles, UppyMama.  I have personally owned Natibaby, Didymos, Girasol, KoKaDi, and Colimacon et Cie wraps.
If you're looking for a more budget friendly wrap I would stick to Colimacon et Cie, Storchenwiege, Hoppediz, or BB Slen.  

Where can I get these wraps?  There are very limited brick and mortar stores that carry woven wraps.  If you have a "natural parenting" store local to you I would totally check to see if they carry any.  If not, you have to go online.  You can order directly from manufacturers but then you have to deal with international shipping (there are very few brands that are made in the USA - the only one I mentioned was Pavo).  My favorite online retailers are Risaroo (who gives a military discount, just email her to order) and Marsupial Mamas.  Or, you can buy used (I buy and sell wraps constantly) - my favorite "swap" is actually on Facebook.

What kind of fabric should I buy?  Like I mentioned earlier, wraps can pretty much be made out of any natural fiber.  All cotton is great and easy to "break in" but it's far less supportive than linen or hemp.  Bamboo is super soft but really works best for a newborn since it isn't very strong.  I love my wool wrap, but it takes special care since I can't just throw it in a washing machine (but it's worth it, I promise).  So, it's really hard to say what is best.  I always just buy wraps that I like the look of, haha.  If the fiber content doesn't work out I just sell it.  Be prepared to have a wrap come out of the box stiff and "crunchy" though if you buy something like linen or hemp!  The more you use it and love on it the softer and more amazing it will get!

Why woven wraps anyway?  This is really a good question and it's hard for me to answer.  They're just so gosh darn versatile.  They can be used from birth to death (literally - as long as you are strong enough, the wrap is, too).
Yes, I'm carrying my sister
You can wear them in a million different way - front, hip, or back.
I was dancing, in case you couldn't tell, haha
They're just plain pretty.
Baby carrier, fashion statement, or both?
And they can even be used to snuggle with or as totally awesome photo props.
W was being a turd during our first family photo shoot, but snuggling with his wrap totally made for some adorable pictures
If you're willing to take the time to learn how to use them, they are absolutely amazing.

So you're ready to take the plunge - where do you start?  First, I would try and find a babywearing group near you so you can try some wraps out (hopefully).  You can check Babywearing International to see if there is a registered group near you and if nothing comes up there (they have to pay to register so it's possible there is a group near you just not one affiliated with BWI) I would check Facebook!  My favorite all-things-babywearing group is Babywearing Love and Support.  You can post there to see if anyone knows of a group near you.

If there isn't a group near you just take the plunge.  If you have any questions about different wraps I'd be happy to help or you can ask the thousands of kind ladies in the Babywearing Love and Support group on Facebook.  Once you get your wrap in be sure to check out my video tutorials and my favorite YouTube "channel" for learning all things babywearing is actually Babywearing Faith.  If it doesn't work out, you can always sell it on the Swap since woven wraps actually maintain their value pretty darn well.

I think that is more than enough information for "Babywearing 201!"  If there's anything specific you want to know about woven wraps just ask and I'll start putting together a "Babywearing 202 - Woven Wraps Continued" post.  For now, I'll just wrap this up (hehe) with my adorable son wearing a stuffed dog with a scarf!
