11/11/11 11:11 Photo Challenge - Epic Cuteness



Lincoln and I are not at 100% today - we've had a major cold all week and spent most of the day coughing at each other.  Not a lot of fun.  But I still wanted to participate in the fun photo challenge from one of my favorite crafty blogs - Dear Lizzy!


The challenge was to take a photo of what I was doing today at 11:11am - since it is, after all, 11/11/11!  I took several photos of the whole family, but the internet is just not ready to see me with my hair wrapped up in a towel, runny nose, and no makeup + hubby with crazy hair.  SO instead you can view the cute little man we were spending time with at that moment.  :)




Nothing too epic around here - but we are pretty okay with that.

Wordless Wednesday: Hello, Baby Teeth



(I blame those two tiny teeth for the constant sleep deprivation around here these days!)

Self-Timer Photo Challenge - A Look at My Day


I may not post that often, but if you have followed my blog at all over the last few years, you have probably realized that one of my passions is memory keeping - photography and scrapbooking especially.  Today I'm participating in a fun photo challenge featured over on one of my favorite crafty blogs - Dear Lizzy.  The challenge was to use your camera's self-timer to capture an everyday moment. 

This is my today - teaching drama classes while wearing baby and balancing my script on a stroller in my garage drama studio. 

Frugal friends, check out my diaper stash on the top shelf!  Diapers are the only stockpiled item in my home right now.  Well...that and toothpaste.

Thanks, Dear Lizzy, for the fun challenge!  Host another soon, I'll play along!  :)

Wordless Wednesday: My Dashboard's Confessional

 




I noticed this situation while on my way to the Rhea Lana's of Overland Park sale.  Sent the photo to my little bro (he's a mechanic) with a caption of "is this bad?"  He called me and said "quit driving. now."  Yup.  Guess it's bad.

5 days until 4mo. Today.

Wow.  It's been awhile. 

I'll post again soon with more updates from the last few months.  But for now, I want to share about today.


Lincoln, today...

*you think your Exersaucer is fabulous.  You're talking to it, beating on the little rolling wheel, and attacking the sunshiney toy like the world is coming to an end. 

*you slept 8 1/2 hours in your crib last night - and you put yourself to sleep.  I set you in your crib wide-awake at 10:20pm, thinking I would have to stay up with you for several more hours.  But you just rolled right over to your tummy, made some little noises, and went right to sleep.  I couldn't believe it.  Still can't.

*you're starting to stick your little legs under you and try to shove off the ground when you're on your tummy.  I'm not ready for you to crawl yet, kiddo.  Not ready at all.

*you have decided that rolling is awesome.  Back to front, front to back, round and round.  As much as you can, you are rolling.  You're trying to roll off my lap and off the changing table, which is a whole different story. 

*your bedroom is a mess because I'm in the middle of putting away your 0-3 month clothes and getting out the 3-6 month stuff.  How are you so big?  I cried a couple nights ago when your Daddy took your 0-3 month jammies out of your drawer.

*you love your binky, but in the past couple of days you have truly discovered your thumb.  I think it's rivaling binky for your love.



*you are loving books!  We read a couple of stories every night before bed (at the very least) and you chatter at the pictures.  Unless you're super hungry.

*you sometimes can't decide if you're laughing or crying.  Which means I have no idea, either.

*you love the puppy dog toy that hangs on your carseat.  You've started reaching out to grab it. 

*you frequently have a moment during your naps where you just SCREAM at the top of your lungs.  You're still asleep.  But it scares me to death every time.

*you love to go outside.  But you sneeze every time we head out into the sunshine.  Allergic to the sun?  I think your Daddy is, so maybe.  :)

*you have a lot of very light hair on the top of your head.  If it's brushed sideways you can see it, but otherwise people think you have no hair.

*you love to talk.  Loudly.  Especially when Mommy and Daddy are trying to watch TV.

*you have a monkey on your bum.  And I think it's the cutest thing ever.

I love you, sweet baby!
