But what will I wear? {& surgery info}

{Think Grinch, while reading that title.}

It's picture time! {Again.} This Saturday, we're headed to Longwood Gardens with our amazing photographer to get "little" Miss Brynn's first birthday pictures taken. {Sigh. This post takes me right back to Carter's 1st birthday pics, which you can see here and here.}

The weather on Saturday is iffy... they keep saying it's going to rain, then it's not going to rain, then it's going to rain again. The good thing is that Longwood has beautiful gardens inside as well, so we should still be able to get some great pictures! {without me in them because my hair will be a big ol' curly, frizzy mess.}

As for the outfits, picking the kids clothes was very fun, as usual. Us? Not so much. Brynn will have 1 outfit change since it's her birthday pics. I want her to wear something nice and then get some pics in her adorable birthday shirt, made by the amazingly talented Rachel, from Golden Shop. {Yes, the same person who made Carter's Phillies 1st birthday shirt and the big bro/lil sis shirts... she's awesome.}

The only info I gave Rach was that it had to be a white shirt, size 2T {for my big girl}, bright colors, and Alice in Wonderland theme. She did the rest...I mean the little details on the tea cups?? Gorgeous! God, I love her. Brynnie will be wearing that shirt with jeans and her little Adidas shell tops for some of the pics. Oh, and her owl hat =)
Next up was trying to find the nice outfits for both kiddos. I wanted Carter and Brynn to kinda match, so over to Etsy I went {as usual} and as soon as I saw it, I new I had to have it...
Cute right?? Brynn will be wearing a white shirt under the pillowcase dress and Carter will be wearing dark jeans and a light blue button down over {or under} his tie shirt. I think.

As for me, I'm wearing dark jeans, flats, a grey sweater and this shirt...
...which is now on sale, of course. As for Bob? We're still thinking. Maybe a light blue shirt and jeans. Who knows.

Below are links to the shops where these items were purchased:
Butterfly Baby Place- Matching pillow case dress & tie shirt
Misslis Boutique- Owl hat
Golden Shop- Tea cup first birthday shirt
Nikki, In Stitches- Rosette Head band
The Limited- Purple ruffle shirt

Whew, okay... the last thing I wanted to mention is that I'm feeling super nervous for Carter's ear surgery tomorrow. I know it's "routine" and that ear tubes are "no big deal" and that it's a "very fast procedure" but honestly? None of that matters. This is my baby we're talking about. He'll be under anesthesia. That scares the crap out of me. I've heard bad things about anesthesia {I got my medical degree from Grey's Anatomy} so I'm really nervous about seeing him like that and also how he'll react when he comes out of it. My poor baby. :(

In the end, I know that this is a very good thing and that he'll feel like a million bucks once everything is healed. We're doing the right thing for him, I just know it.

Please keep Carter {and me, sheesh!} in your thoughts and prayers tomorrow. We report to AI DuPont Children's Hospital at 8:20am and his surgery is scheduled for 9:40am.

How about a vote for this scardey cat of a mama? {Jenni, MD}

Love the outfits! Pictures at Longwood will be so gorgeous. I mean even if it rains, anywhere in the conservatory will be beautiful...especially the childrens' garden!

Good luck tomorrow, Carter (and mom and dad!).
