Geaux Hokies!

I bought David this onesie specifically for the Sugar Bowl.

The only clothing we bought before David’s arrival was Virginia Tech clothes. We didn’t know if he was a boy or a girl and we didn’t want to invest too much in baby clothes. Good thing maroon and orange are gender neutral.

I did the calculations, by bowl time my baby would be under 5 months old, so I had onesies and sleepers up to size 6-9 months. SURELY they would fit…and probably last through part of basketball season, right? Wrong.

Good thing sports apparel was on sale at Target last week.

After the ACC Championship debacle and the surprise at-large pick for the Sugar Bowl, Hokies started saying things like, “A spoonful of sugar helps the Clemson go down.”

I suppose so.

We’ll find out for real tonight.

Go Hokies!

P.s. I used the fleece blanket my sister gave me for my high school graduation gift as a backdrop for David’s photo. See how nice it is?

    Yes. Yes, he should. But his father is such a Hokie…as is his father’s whole family and friends…and well, you know how those Hokie fans are. they’re a little crazy about their Hokies 🙂
