The Softies Arrived!

When I got home last night, there was a package waiting for me from Houston. Bump thought it was ebay stuff, but I could tell immediately it was from Miles, etc. After all the surgery-related stressing, it was exactly what I needed to brighten my day.

Are they the coolest things you've ever seen? Yes. Yes they are.

That one of the left? That's clearly Bump. The fabric is bark-brown corduroy - like a log, get it? The back is this cool cow-print suede.

That's me, the red one with the strips of the asian print fabric. I think the face even looks like me, Roundy McBallface. The back references my awesome poker prowess.

The third one is obviously Lumpyhead.

The hat comes off.
And the coolest thing? I updated the blog template on Monday, so given shipping and construction time, Heather must have made the Lumpyhead softie before the update. Yet the softie has a similar color scheme and the dots of Lumpyhead's new blog. That's so cool it's freaky.

Lumpyhead thinks they're great.

And he enjoyed reading/eating the enclosed letter from Miles.

The picture of Lumpyhead in the viking getup made me laugh really loud.

Dude, I'm like missing the bandwagon or something! Both you and Citymama posted on these Softy things today! Guess I gotta get one for my little hapa kid too. ;)

I am so glad that you like them. I must have had a premonition about the blog change. That, or I can read your mind. Paranoid yet?
