Show and Tell Saturday: The Pinstrosi-Babe

Well, here's what I made recently...only I didn't get the directions from Pinterest (that would be quite a disturbing Pinterest pin to find):


I still can't get over his hair! I love it so much. I've always figured I'd have dark haired babies, but I guess I was wrong. Each new nurse that came on staff was brought to our room to see his hair, it was funny.

We named him Darrow after my grandfather who died this past January, and the name fits him so well. 


Labor/Delivery went well (6 hrs from start-waking up at 3 am with diarrhea and vomiting-to finish. Hooray for the awesome quick labor family genes!) and we're all doing great and recovering well here at home. 

Bahaha, we've had quite a few comments about him looking like Donald Trump in this photo. It's true, lol. 
A few of my favorite things about this little guy so far:
-His hair. That's just a given. It is fantastic. 
-He loves having his little fist up on his cheek when he's sleeping or just when he's content and looking around. We have an ultrasound from around 20 weeks of him in that same position. That is also the position he was born in (one hand at his side, one in a fist at his cheek). 
-His pooping stance. I find it hilarious. The "I'm pooping!" face coupled with the "torpedo legs" (straight out and tense). I don't know why it's so funny. 
-He's not in me anymore! I really really love that about him, hahaha. I can bend over, roll over in bed, slouch, breath, etc. again. Oh it feels so nice.

  2. Enjoy your baby! I, too, am a brunette who has a blonde child. You're adventure in strangers giving double-takes are just beginning. Somehow, having a child with such drastically different coloring makes people look twice, and sometimes, ask weird and dumb questions. But, what a beautiful child, and this stranger is glad you both are doing well.

  3. He's gorgeous! Little Man was the same about his head of hair and his hands in his face (he still does it, in fact, and he turns 3 today). I also loved that I could move properly again...well, sort of...c-section.

  27. He is gorgeous! And what a beautiful name. I envy you all the years ahead of you with him. (My kids are 37 and 38 now, it all seems so long ago).

  28. Oh, he's absolutely lovely. And…sigh…with my baby now a toddler, you're giving me a bad yen to reproduce again…

    Also, about the hair: when my older son was a white-blonde toddler and I was going through a dyed-mahogany phase and we'd be out with my deeply-brunette husband, I had people all but ask if Older Son was adopted. It was as though they'd never heard of "hair dye."
