Baby Accessories

Perhaps I'm taking this prep work for the baby just a bit too far...

Maybe I haven't properly explained this. The evening we broke the news to our folks, we had them over for dinner. Before we ate - when we could hold the secret absolutely no longer - we popped the cork on a bottle of champagne. As a sly way of telling them, we hooked pacifiers to the stems of the champagne flutes. Apparently that was also my cue to accessorize.

I know you're new at this, but that's not where those binky things go....and piercing a newborns ear to keep said binky in a place where you can find it...again, a bad idea.

I'm just sayin.

that's so cute. I love it. be all excited, that's what this time is for!

It looks great on you, it'll go well with a bib and a sleeper too...

Sure make fun of the binky now. But believe me, it will be such the sanity saver for you and the Mrs. later on down the road.

Oh my goodness, could you guys be any more creative?

Posted by: jenorama at January 27, 2005 6:39 PM

Oh yeah. That is *way* sexy. lol.

I'm in pain for you. Seriously, it hurts.

i had no idea you were pierced. hmm. you know, long dangly earrings are in style right now. so they say. you could start a new trend.

by the way, i'm having sympathy hunger cravings...do you have any milk and cookies? oreos, preferably. send 'em my way, ok? :)

I think maybe getting the baby's ear pierced and attaching the 'binky' to it might be a GOOD idea. They're always dropping the damn things!

You know you were supposed to also tell us their reactions, right?

Posted by: PinkStiletto at January 27, 2005 9:23 PM

love it. you should totally market those to all the cool and hip daddy-o's.

Posted by: Snidget at January 27, 2005 9:25 PM

I am scared! Do you know where the babies mouth should be?

Not near the ear! *grin* I love New mommys and daddys! Way sexy with the nuk (how we refered to ours in the old days 25 years ago!) in the ear!

SWEET! You should start wearing that to work!

Posted by: Jaded Angel at January 27, 2005 10:19 PM

Aww... how sweet!
Hey, how did they react? I wanna know!
You should have taken a picture of the look on their faces when they learned the news.

ummm... a tip for ya.
Make sure you don't have a baby nearby when you wear that pacifier that way.
They might just tear your whole EAR off!
Belive me I've been very close to having it torn off for wearing CUTE long earrings to my job. LOL
Babies see it. Want it. Will have it.
They are kinda scary when they get that look in their eyes. LOL
Be safe!

Oh no, you DID-UNT. :)

That is too cute. If I ever find myself in the same situation (way, WAY in the future), I hope that my announcement is just as special. :)

i must say you have just the righ facial expression. the pacifier earring says "i'm baby friendly" and yet, the face says "don't fuck me with me. i may be wearing a pacifier for an earring but i can still kick your ass from here to Sunday." I must say, Bravo. That's a tough combination to pull off.

Posted by: Patricia at January 28, 2005 7:53 AM

You looks so hardcore with that earring in yo!

Posted by: Kimmer at January 28, 2005 9:04 AM

Hahahaha! That's so funny. You crack me up. No reason you can't have fun with the baby accessories, it just shows how happy you are about becoming a father. Have a great weekend!

Posted by: Milly at January 28, 2005 10:14 AM

Oh, you'd better hurry and market that thing. Next thing you know the "Ear-cifiers" will be all the rage!!

So I take it your parents got the hint???

Posted by: Gweny at January 28, 2005 10:27 AM

Heeeee! You are almost as cute as Beth these days!

Posted by: Amber at January 28, 2005 11:06 AM

Be careful, this could become the latest trend amongst todays hottest hip hop stars. A band aid under the eye, a toothbrush hanging from the mouth, and a pacifier from the ear. HOT!

Posted by: RockStar Mommy at January 28, 2005 12:03 PM

So, you're gonna wear that out in public, right?

Posted by: Kitty at January 28, 2005 12:47 PM

white trash chic at its finest! haha

Posted by: Maureen at January 28, 2005 8:16 PM

Yo bay-be!

Posted by: Sue at January 28, 2005 10:22 PM

Hey, the accessory of the season! I never realized how fashion sensible you truly are!

Posted by: Jade at January 29, 2005 10:28 AM

Hahahahaha! Very cute!
