Not Me Monday

NOOO, this is definitely NOT my 4 month old entranced with the candle. My boys are NOT pyros at all! And they would definitely NOT get it from their father if they were!
And that is NOT a mosquito bite on my baby's cheek. He NEVER goes outside without adult supervision at all times!
And that is NOT my baby in a Calvin Klein onesie! He is a very down-to-earth kinda baby.

Duvet Cover

It wasn't my intention ... but ... my mother-in-law took pity on me via my whiny blog and ordered that duvet cover! It came today and it looks great! Our master is well on its way to taking on the "old world sophisticated" that I dream for it to be. Thanks Sharon!

Pounding the Pavement

Sass headed out the door this afternoon with a purse full of resumes and didn't return until she had given them all away! Please pray that the Lord will provide her a job with a positive atmosphere.

And It Was ...

A Mack Truck, Trailer, and 2 Diggers from Popeye and Olive Oyle in Arizona!!!

Since it was raining outside, Andy brought out a bin of Legos to serve as dirt

Building a plane to put on the trailer

Daddy reconnecting with his childhood obsession

Thanks so much, Mom and Dad! Albeit totally random, it made Aiden's month! He is so obsessed with playing with the trucks that I actually almost thought twice about letting him sleep with the smaller one and I have given up keeping the diggers out of the mulch around the plants in the yard. He's a boy, might as well let him enjoy his childhood! Thanks again for fostering boyhood!

Mystery Box

Upon our return home from the mall and Cheesecake Factory on Saturday, this large box was hiding on our little front porch, just out of the reach of the rain. Aiden was super stoked to open the box once he got wind that it was apparently something for him, according to the address label. "Daddy, you open it for me, Daddy?"

(And yes, he's getting a nose itch!)

SO excited that he had to climb up on the couch for a better venue

Or more affectionately known around here as "Peechoo." Don't ask - all our nicknames are random!

Me-n-my Boys


Or more affectionately known around here as "Pluribus"

There's Baby Stuff Everywhere!

We have been SO blessed by caring friends who have lent us a plethora of baby gear. I am very thankful for all of it, as it makes it so nice to have safe places to put Little in every room of the house. (Except the master bedroom. NO baby gear there!) But on the other hand, there IS baby stuff everywhere!

There's the swing in the living room

Even stuffed in the coat closet

This play blanket is one of Ash's favs - it slides under the couch at night!

Mommy's Big Helper

My Big Boy has always been obsessed with the "Green Machine" . . . they go WAAAYYY back!

He's become pretty handy over time. He finds such enjoyment in cleaning up the messes under his high chair with the Green Machine. Wonder how long I can get that to last?!

Spilled Milk

Don't worry, Aiden didn't cry over this spilled milk. In fact, he rather enjoyed it. A bit too much. It will be a few more months before Aiden gets a try at a "big boy cup" again!

Couch Findings

I took a few minutes and willingly cleaned under the couch cushions. Look what I found!
