Baby carrots make pretty good teething toys. They are cold but not too cold, easy to handle and not too slimy!
I am sure there is some parenting expert out there that says I am permanently damaging my son by letting him suck on a carrot before he’s a certain age…oh well!
Future soccer player? Hmmm…that would be weird.
Or maybe he’ll start doing Riverdance!
My favorite view in the world…beats Paris any day of the week.
He’s just entering the I’m-going-grab-your-nose/cheeks/hair/mouth-with-both-hands phase.
I’m so spoiled. A wonderful care package from my Emily that I get to open over four days (if I can wait that long.) How did I get so lucky to have such a wonderful best friend?!?!?
He looks like a dinosaur version of Dark Helmet from Spaceballs… ahahaha!
Being away from my monkey has been extra hard today. He woke up at 5:00am with a sweet little cough and a stuffy nose that seemed to clear after about 10 minutes of being awake…he was fine. Even his coughs are cute. He coughs with such enthusiasm and often has a coy little smile while he does it, like he’s proud that he’s figured it out.
I spent all day at work worrying about him and missing him and feeling like I have so little control over life. I know it was probably just teething symptoms or allergies but my heart hurts at the possibility of him being sick.
I have to be careful when I pick him up from Abby’s that I don’t squeeze him too hard! I just want him to be permanently attached so I can hug him whenever I want. Hasn’t anyone figure out how to do that yet?
What an amazing Mother’s day. Probably one of the happiest days of my life, so many glorious moments, not the least of which was when my Michaels gave me earrings!
Houston we have a problem. I’ve discovered how to make amazing open-face s’mores in the broiler. It’s fast, delicious, and oh so dangerous.
So a while ago I posted about this really interesting video about women’s view of themselves that Dove did. I thought it was really poignant and a good reminder that women tend to have a highly skewed view of ourselves.
And of course, there are always good reminders not to take things too seriously and that men…well men see themselves differently. Freaking hilarious.
“Um, excuse me, i’d like to order a sandwich.”
Why is my kid always sticking up his middle finger…is he trying to tell me something?
5% Super excited and relieved to be back to some resemblance of a routine. So grateful for my wonderful job and friends at work.
Dropping him off was one of the hardest things I have ever done. I can’t even imagine what it would feel like if I had to do this after six weeks or if I had to drop him at somewhere that wasn’t so amazing for him. Daddysnacks and I each have one of his socks in our pocket. God I miss him. I am so fortunate to have gotten 18 weeks with Michael, I will never forget how special it was!
