Isaac's First Game

So today we took Isaac to his first BYU football game. I spent the early afternoon preparing him for it--taught him the fight song, practiced the hand motions, reviewed who the players are... just kidding. What I actually did was made him a little outfit to express his future love for BYU football. There's not much in the way of BYU paraphernalia for tiny people, so I got to express my own creativity and make him this little version of the BYU uniform:

We put Isaac in his carrier and by the time we had walked from the parking lot to the game, he was sound asleep - and that's pretty much how he stayed throughout the entire game. The game was really fun; the team made short work of CSU, so nothing to complain about there. We had a lot of fun sharing our passion for the game with Isaac.


One really cool thing-- in the women's bathroom in the lower part of the stadium, there is actually a little area set aside, like a little mother's room. I was able to go down there at half time and feed Isaac no problem. Coolest thing, though, I met another girl with a baby about the same size as Isaac. We got to chatting and comparing ages and found out they were both five weeks old --and born on the same day! In the same hospital! How neat is that? And they both weighed the same when they were born. Crazy huh? She was a really nice girl, and I hope we'll run into each other during future half time feedings. :)

How did you do the number and the lettering on the back? Is it an iron on decal?
