Busy boy

The weather is (kind of) cooling off so nights around here are being spent outside with this little man.You may be wondering why my baby is outside in a diaper and tennis shoes but to be honest, this is what you can normally find him in. He sleeps in a diaper, plays in a diaper, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Sure I dress him in clothes when we go in public but I can't get enough of his fluffy bum and big belly ....more

To the city that doesn't sleep...

....thank you for 10 hours of sleep each night, the decadent food that reminds me why I can never go on a diet, the unforgettable people watching, and the hours I got to spend with the hunk I call my husband.Last night Jon and I got home from a glorious 4 days away, sans baby, in New York City.

Water bottles are always a lot easier to serve to a large group rather than filling cups and ended up with a pile of dishes so even though it's not the most "green" route, it is the easiest ....more

Last week we spent a few days in Dallas with family and these pictures are just too cute not to share. I look at the pictures of Ford on his tip toes and Ford squatting in the front yard and cannot believe that my baby boy is no more! He looked so much more grown up trying to keep up with his 2 year old cousin Embry and wanted to do what she was doing ....more
