Pee-Pee Teepee, Anyone?

Hi everyone!

I think that JoAnn Fabrics, Hobby Lobby and Michael's must certainly be hurting financially because of my 6 week absence.  Hopefully you all are picking up my slack out there!

Thankfully, Jamie at Right at Home has tagged me, and I will take it on since my home projects are all half-finished at the moment.  :)  Thanks, Jamie!  

Eight Random Things About Me:

1. The nuances of having two males in my house are abundant!  Who knew that a 6-week-old boy would rival his father in terms of his, ah, nocturnal noises?  Toots, burps, and grunts are the norm in my life these days!  

2. I am a sucker for my DVR.  Since we are house-bound, we have gotten into Friday Night Lights, How I Met Your Mother, The Office, and, of course, Lost.  Can anyone relate?

3. I love being an auntie!  Baby Caroline is such a joy, even in the two short weeks she has been here.  I can't wait for all the girlie-girl times to come!  Here's a recent photo of me, my daughter Nina, and sweet niece Caroline:

4. My latest obsession: Cookies and cream ice cream.  I figure that the baby needs the calories to grow big and strong, right? 

5. My dad and his wife are visiting this week from Ohio to meet the two new grandbabies!  He just celebrated his 60th birthday, and my sister and I are flying them out as a birthday gift.  I can't wait!

6. Just had my six-week checkup at my "lady doctor."  Things are all good...and I got the approval to start working out again.  Oh goodie!  (Sense the sarcasm.)  I wonder what this will do to my ice cream habits?

7. Two words: Pee-Pee Teepee.  Am I the only one who hadn't heard of this?

8. Baby Henry is cuter every day and is now weighing over 8 pounds!  Not bad for a little 5lb. 13 oz. peanut!  Check out his little chubby cheeks!

That is the sweetest photo of baby Henry - what a precious little smile! The picture of you and the girls is adorable, too. :) Oh, and I had never heard of the teepee thing, either - but what a great invention. Hope you have a wonderful week enjoying your little ones!

Hi Carrie~
Baby Henry changes everytime I see a picture of him...such a cutie! Love the one of you and the girls, too! Nope, the pee-pee teepee is new to me!

Kelli said...

I can very much relate to being in love with the DVR, especially for Lost (I can't believe it's not on this week!). I've heard of the pee pee teepee and we needed one for Caleb's first few weeks...he got everyone!
Happy Tuesday and enjoy your little ones (all 3).

Jodee Leader said...

I enjoyed reading your random list. I love the DVR too!

Cute picture of Henry! Sounds like things are going great!

Christina said...

What a sweet babe! I only heard of the teetee peepee recently---when I had a new nephew. ; )

I love your antique wagon mirror.

Sandy Toes said...

Oh what cute pictures!

Have fun with your family coming~

Kristi said...

Your son is so cute! Love his little smile.

No DVR here but we watched The Office on DVD over Christmas break (all seasons!) and I LOVE that show!

Mandi said...

I have 2 boys, so I had pee-pee teepees in my life. I didn't use them as often as I should have, so I ended up having to change clothes quite a bit!
I'm glad your family is coming for a visit. I just love when my parents come to town. And you are right about master Henry. He is just getting cuter and cuter, if that is even possible!

duchess said...

So adorable - both babies. We are totally addicted to Friday Night Lights - it's so good.
Don't workout too hard.

Kimm at Reinvented said...

He's so sweet, I miss those newborn days. Well, sort of. I'm becoming convinced that the teen years are almost as much work! :)
Have a great visit with your family.

Stacey said...

He has grown so much! Better get your pee pee tee pee ready. That spray goes further with time.

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...

We know what Pee Pee Teepees are, but thankfully I have more girls than boys. I don't know what I'd do with a baby that small - my last one was 9 lbs. 8 ozs.!!

Jboo said...

Hi Carrie -- so fun to see a post! You look fabulous with little Nina and Baby Caroline. Henry looks like he has gotten so big already! Wow -- changing fast!
Had never of the peepee teepee thing -- but my boys were babies a LONG time ago! Have a great week!

What a cutie!!!!

Ruby Red Slippers said...

The Pee-pee Teepee-I have heard of it-with three boys, I have had my drapes peed on, my walls peed on my FACE peed on, and themselves peed on! I learned a washcloth works wonders if you cover up their little sprayers...
Have you been initiated yet into the "He peed on me club" yet?!
Glad to hear you are all doing great-you look great, and so does the baby!!

AMY said...

Henry is growing and changing...just beautiful. Pee-pee teepee is new to me. With 2 boys where have I been? I will be purchasing for a baby shower gift for my oldest son's teacher that is having her first, a boy. So funny.

Sarah @ Thrifty Decor Chick said...

I found those teepees in the same fabric as my son's bedding and almost got them!! We didn't need them for too long anyway, he stopped "spraying" fairly soon. ;) OH, and the DVR is my best friend too!! Your son is adorable!

Windy said...

He is precious!
I have only recently heard of the tepee:) My friend has a new baby boy and she showed me. When my son was a baby, I always had the dry diaper ready to hold over "it". You know what always happens when the air hits!

Momma to Bug said...

Henry is adorable! Such a tiny little guy but getting bigger. I have heard of the teepee's but heard they are expensive and overrated. How do you feel? We have had two ultrasounds already and I am only 9.5 weeks. My doctor thinks I am high risk b/c of my last m/c but everything looks good so far! Glad to hear you are doing well.

Carrie, if you had a post office box or a business address, giveaway might be a possibility. Just a thought. Thanks so much for stopping by. You can also go to their website to see the mag....www.southernladymagazine.com. Take care and have a great day.

We are into all those tv shows (minus How I Met Your Mother) plus so so so many more! :)

The Krile Daily News said...

My DVR became my best friend when I had Adleigh too!

You should check out The Big Bang Theory...it is now my fave over the Office which is saying a lot for me.

Little one is precious!!

Sit A Spell said...

My little boy is 6 now...I just used a tissue. Little Henry is adorable Carrie! Yes, love the DVR! (and I don't have a newborn)
How exciting that your Dad is coming to visit! Enjoy.

Em @ Bunch of Scrap said...

Can you believe our babies are 6 weeks already! Ok, get this... I was just telling someone on Twitter that they needed to get Tivo because I would die without it... two days later, mine dies! We have to wait a week to get our new one... its so horrible... having to watch commercials and I cant even remember what day and time my shows are on! The teepee rocks - we have two!

Juice said...

Never heard of the teepee either. Love the pics!

Amanda said...

What a sweet picture of baby Henry! He's just adorable! I've never had to use the pee-pee teepee before, since I have 2 girls, but my friends swear by it! Oh, and don't worry about Hobby Lobby and Michaels suffering - I'm picking up your slack!

Marci @ All Things Wonderful said...

Love the picture of baby Henry. He is adorable. What a great birthday gift for the grandparents. I hope ya'll have a wonderful visit.

Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...

I bet the people at Hobby Lobby is wondering where you have been...lol!!

Little Henry is so cute.....sounds like you are all doing well and what fun to have a niece so close in age to Henry. Great to see you and Nina in a picture too.....you have such a beautiful family my friend!!

Enjoy your week,

Lisa

Jamie said...

Ha, ha! Isn't the tee pee thing funny...and a great idea! Loved your list! Thanks for joining the fun! And that's such a sweet picture of your little guy.

The Graves' House said...

Lana said...

Never heard of the teepee thing...hmmm. I love the photos of your babies! Absolutely precious!

julie & joe said...

The pee-pee teepee cracks me up! Did you see it on Brothers and Sisters last week? Beautiful photos!

Sarah said...

Gorgeous baby!

Miss M! said...

I never heard of a peepee teepee until I was pg with a boy. I bought some on etsy because I thought they were funny - the fact that they actually came in handy was a bonus!

the undomesticated wife said...

You can just use a small baby sock instead of buying anything or making anything. It works just as well! :)

Gretchen said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Friday Night Lights. I told my daughter I would miss her if Tim Riggins came for me!

Our Complete Family said...

You look great girl! Loved seeing you in a photo with Nina and Caroline Jr (he, he, he!).
Jason and I are HOOKED on Friday Night Lights~ isn't it a great show? I, too, love my dvr. Best invention ever!!!
Give Henry some smooches and Nina some hugs and a smooch as well!
Happy day wishes sweetie~ Les

Kacey R. said...

I SO MISS my TIVO! I want it BACK! But that is a story for another time. Your family is beautiful!!!

Kim said...

How fun! Great learning a little more about you!

SoBella Creations said...

Henry is adorable! I did make a small trip to Michaels just a few days ago. I have two girls so I hadn't heard of the teepee things either.

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

Catchy title. Hee-hee. : )
I loved the photos. You look great six weeks after giving birth. And the last photo of baby Henry is adorable!

Mandy Weaver said...

love the pee pee tee pee! why didn't I think of that? I have a new grandson born Feb. 6. I think my daughter really needs these!

june@craftyniche said...

He's beautiful! :)

Naturally Caffeinated Family said...

Sorry I've been away for so long! A big congratulations to you and the fam!!! Henry is adorable!! Oh we would be so addicted to a DVR if we had one! Such cute pics too!

Miss E said...

How blessed you are to have such cute and healthy kids and your niece is just precious. What a lucky family - and lucky grandparents!

I have never heard of Pee-pee Teepees before but they are a totally great invention. As auntie to two adorable little boys, I know it's a must!

Susie from Bienvenue said...

I must not tell a lie but you had me at the pee pee tee pee?! I have never heard of such a thing..too funny! Enjoy that baby and yes! Eat that ice cream...he needs it too~

Jesslee said...

Ahh, he looks so cute. It's crazy, all the new things that are out there for babies nowadays. I always would just lay a cloth diaper over my brothers when I had to change them. haha. Too bad I didn't invent the teepee. haha.

Erin said...

What a beautiful little boy! I have never heard of the pee pee teepee. Sounds pretty interesting. Have a great day!

jennykate77 said...

OMGosh, Carrie...the picture of Henry is adorable. He's the sweetest! You know, I heard of a pee-pee tee-pee a little too late. Isaiah was already out of that stage by the time I knew what they were. I remember wishing I had those! Oh, and I LOVE my DVR. Don't know what I would do without it. It's the only way I get to watch my shows in peace and quiet.

Hope you're having a great week!

Gray Matters said...

Friday Night Lights is the best show on television.

Henry is absolutely precious!

Life with Kaishon said...

Oh my goodness. He is so totally adorable! And perfect : ). Do you think pee-pee teepee is 2 words or 3? Just something I wonder about : ). Your niece is adorable. So sweet.

Jen said...

So cute! I thought your 6 week go ahead was for something else besides workin' out. ;)

Mimi Sue said...

He's a doll! And yes boys are definitely different than girls in so many ways. You will be so surprised at the differences. Mimi

kari and kijsa said...

We actually have the pee-pee teepee!! SOmeone gave them to us when Kijsa's son was born- too funny!!
blessings,
kari & kijsa

Connie said...

Hi Carrie...He's a sweetie and you look great! Don't you wish you would have designed the Pee Pee Tee Pee??? My daughter got some of those and never used them...just change the diaper quick!! COnnie

Jules from "The Roost" said...

I am so glad you are doing good! Enjoy that ice-cream and cookies and your sweet babies!=) Love the photo's.

Davene said...

Pee-Pee Teepee? That is too funny! I had never heard of it, although with all my boys I've certainly had the need for that. Fortunately, a wadded up cloth diaper or receiving blanket works just fine, too. And eventually they grow out of it! :)

I hope you had a wonderful visit with your dad!

Gina @ Six in the Country said...

Oh honey I am so with you on the DVR! We were up until 10 last night putting primer on the new walls. I didn't stress missing Jon & Kate Plus 8, cause I knew I could climb into bed and watch it sans commercials before I went to lala land!

Anne Marie said...

I don't have a DVR, but do watch Lost and 24 on the computer- we don't only have tv for a movie once and awhile....
Your blog looks like a lot of fun to check out...will be back!
