Dear Baby Girl Petersik,
I know that technically we have not met yet. Even more technically, we haven’t been born yet. But 2010 is a big year for us. All sorts of new stuff ahead. Like breathing. And pooping. And boobs. Yum.
I just want you to know that I am really looking forward to meeting you. Apparently our mothers have already been discussing a fabulous future wedding. That’s why it was really important for me to get hunky for you now. I have been doing quite a leg workout & hope that you will one-day be impressed with my massive thigh muscles. My mom has also been ingesting quite a bit of bacon…for my brain to develop. Very soon I hope to impress you with such words as “Renovation” and “Mantlescape” and “Biodegradable”. And if that doesn’t make your diapered hiney tingle…well, maybe my new winter wardrobe will….
My personal favorite is this plaid hoodie one-piece. My mom purchased it for $9. She’s always trying to pimp me out for the ladies. But there is only one girl I am hoping to impress.
Looking forward to our first playdate.
Your unborn lumberjack boyfriend, Will
Aw, so cute! I finally announced my pregnancy on my blog this week, so now I can actually comment on your’s and Sherry’s baby posts! We’ll find out the gender in a few weeks, and it’s great to see some ideas for baby boys because I’ve been struggling with that. Girl stuff has come so much easier! I’m not yet in maternity clothes (soon, I’m sure) so I’ve been keeping an eye on your posts about that. Hope you and Baby Bower are doing well!

I bought the Gap onsie that was in that same red and brown gingham print. We call our little guy a lumberjack too when he wears it. Yay for BabyGAP sales. 🙂
Katie – this letter is a-dor-able! Love the cute boy clothes! Can’t wait to meet (okay,see from blog world) little Will.
Uhhh, saw this hilarious post and thought of you…why is there bacon in my soap
The clothes are too cute BTW. I may copy ya b/c my 4 month old may look stylin himself!
Um, super cute.
Haha! So CUTE 🙂 That’d be sooo awesome if your kids became little DIYers like you guys!

I was wondering if there was going to be an “arranged” marriage in the works! Too cute!
Adorable! I have a feeling the two babies will be best friends in no time.
Too cute!! I was wondering if you and Sherry were playing Yenta the Matchmaker with your little beans. 🙂
I have been waiting for you or someone to hint for the two new babies to futurely?? fall in love!
i love it!
just love ya!!! congrats. You are going to LOOOOOve your boy. I loooove my boys 2 older sisters to death, but there is just something about a little boy and his mama.

To my cute unborn lumberjack boyfriend,
Nice wardrobe dude. I’m totally drooling. Babies do that but I’m doing it even more than usual in response to your kind and complementary letter. It’s on.

“Your unborn lumberjack boyfriend, Will”
I love it!!! And those clothes are so cute. Something my husband freaks out about is that I’m obsessed with baby clothes . . . I even bought a pair of sea creature long johns from the gap(we’re not expecting) that could be for either a girl/boy recently. now i can just live vicariously through you!
LOVE this email (and Baby Girl Petersik’s response!)!
I get such pleasure from matching up our neighbor babies – this coupling was a natural!
Looking forward to photos from the first meeting and then wedding photos! (Forget the in between – go straight to the wedding! Perhaps for Halloween #1, a bride and groom?!)

I am a lurker, not a reg poster, but this was so funny I have been driven to it! CONGRATS btw…
So hilarious!!! After you announced that Will was, in fact, Will, I need that Sherri be having a girl. It’s just destined that these two get hitched!
Amanda L says
I love both of your blogs and love all the comments about the babies being betrothed. This letter was beyond cute. I love the clothes too!
Laura @ soalaurable says
Too funny! A Bower-Petersik wedding would be awesome!
I follow both you and YHL equally and I thought it was so great that one was having a boy and one a girl!
So cute! And that wardrobe is making me squee 🙂 Nothing better than baby clothes.
Too ridiculously funny for words. I am highly amused. You know you spend too much time reading Home Design blogs when…
That’s adorable! Looks comfy enough, too. Forget a snuggy, I want one of those in my size.
Super cute!!!! Same with Sherry’s response. 🙂
Oh my gosh…that was so funny! You’re a comical genius!
You forgot to include….
Dear Burger Petersik,
I would like to request that you keep away your shot gun away when I come by. I just want to be your sister’s lumberjack boyfriend.
Love the cardigan! Is there stuff to match Dad w/ or is that too corny?
Amanda H. says
Baby Bower + Baby Petersik = the best combination in the entire world.
I seriously think that together, they could take over everything. 🙂
that is absolutely adorable!
Actually Erica, Jeremy called that a “Mr. Rogers sweater”…so I highly doubt I can convince him to don a matching adult version. Maybe I could talk him into it if I told him I had a thing for the ‘friendly neighbor’. Either that or my boyfriend would think I’m kinda creepy.

Love, love it ~ too cute 😉 Baby Will has great taste in girls & clothes! Thank you for making me smile today, from one Baby Gap loving momma to another 🙂
Lisa at lists in my pocket says
So funny! Maybe Baby Petersik and Will can start a blog when they start planning their wedding. 🙂 The clothes are great too – I love when baby boys are dressed like little men.
HIL- AR – IOUS!!!!!
I’m a virgin commenter on your blog but have gotten my almost daily fix of all bower power – I love it all! Your posts are so yummy – like thankyousomuch for teaching me how to wrap my presents PRETTY, among many other things. A big congrats on your pregnancy – what a wonderful and exciting time for your family! Will and Baby P will be lifelong DIY friends!
haha, too cute! The blue, button-down shirt is my fav!
I knew it! I knew it was only a matter of time before one of you mentioned plans to hook your babies up! It’s just too perfect! Think of all the renovating they’ll be able to accomplish together!
LOL this is adorable, you are hilarious…as I read both of the blogs I wonder about the two babes meeting up!
Also, just noticed that you may want to update your copyright info to include 2010.
<3 your blog!
