Mama and baby are doing fine, just tired and recovering from an unexpected c-section. Detailed updates to come when I can do more than feed this gorgeous lad or stare at my unrecognizable feet in awe that anything could swell that much after not having a stitch of swelling during my entire pregnancy. In the meantime, enjoy the above photo as a contrast to show that Samuel got my regular Virtue toes and big long feet. They are absurd on a baby and I just want to smother them with kisses.
When I first started dating Daniel I would go over to his apartment to hang out and when I got there he would often be watching the cheesiest shows I had ever seen. One of them had some goofy guy with a magic flashlight or something who always saved the day against really goofy villains. I, of course, would make fun of him.
A funny thing happened after a few years. Somehow he talked me into watching one of those goofy shows when the new season started. I was hooked from the first adventure of the Dr. with sweet Amy Pond. Just like that, I gave in and entered the nerd-world of Dr. Who. I even went back and watched all of the episode with the previous 10th Doctor.
This year for Halloween I thought it would be great to dress up as something from this show that we both enjoy so much together. Instead of going with the standby of being one of the Dr’s and his companion I decided it would be extra fun to dress up as the Tardis. The Tardis is Dr. Who’s space ship. The Tardis (Time and Relative Dimension in Space) is the Dr.’s space ship. It is stuck in the shape of a 1960’s British Police Phone Box. I made my costume with some random blue fabric I had around the house. My hat even lit up, which I was pretty proud of. I also made Daniel’s bow-tie. A feat that made us late for our Halloween party, but I finally got it down on the 2nd try.
Someday our little one will ask where babies come from and I will say “One day Daddy pointed his Sonic Screwdriver at Mommy’s tummy and then some wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff happened and there you were!”
We started talking about our costumes early this year so Daniel had plenty of time to start growing his hair out long to make a more convincing 11th Dr. I adore his commitment to authenticity and also, I dig the longer locks 🙂
Maybe it’s the pregnancy hormones, but I feel pretty shmoopy about our costume choice. It was great to dress up in a couples costume that reflected something we both really enjoy and I had a lot of fun sewing for both.
