zucchinis gone wild...

This is what happens when you let your garden go unpicked while you traipse off on a two week vacation. Squash run amok. You know that zucchini multiply like rabbits, right? Another couple of days of growth and the national guard may have had to be called in.

This post will be full of randomness...FYI :)

You guys have been rickrolled, right? Kind of random and juvenile and you wonder if the perpetrator just c/p the wrong link? (I'll admit though, the song is still rather catchy. Carlos Barack Rolled me last night - I laughed my butt off. I don't care what your political leanings are. This is some funny stuff :D

We all know that Flickr is a great time waster. I could spend weeks there, bleary eyed and caffeine hyped, admiring all the talent and "WTF were they thinking" inspired photos. It does my heart good though, to know that groups like this exist. Don't ask me how I found it because I forget. Really now, everything *is* better with bacon though, no?

I want to make some of these for the babies room.

I hope this works because I despise getting all of those wasteful phone books delivered to me - I NEVER use them!

Big combined birthday party BBQ on Monday for both boys. Have I planned or prepared at all? You know the answer. Cupcakes will be involved though. How cool are these? Too cutesy for my purposes but so pretty. I do have this book though so I'm sure we'll have something fun for them :)

OK, work to do...a rainy day here so perhaps I'll clean the house (groan)


so help me little girl...

If all of this fussing and hand gnashing and drooling means you' re teething already, well, I don't know what but I *won't* be happy. The good news is that the 10% of the time you were happy today, you were making all kinds of adorable cooing noises and squeaks. More of those, please!

Really hoping I come back to this post 6 months from now when you really ARE teething and laugh at myself for thinking it might be happening so soon.


happy 1 month, baby girl

1 month has passed already. feels as if you've always been here though; you my dear, were a seamless integration :)

  • you're definitely just coming off a growth spurt - you ate like a champ for about 3 or 4 days (you always have but there was a noticeable difference) I have a feeling we'll be very surprised by your growth at your dr. appointment on Monday! ** OK, I started this post on the 16th (when she turned a month) but am just finishing it up today...1 month stats: 22 3/4" and 11 lbs 4 oz (no wonder I've had a relatively easy time dropping the pregnancy weight :p)
  • you've been much more alert the past few days - I'm guessing this goes hand in hand with the growth spurt! you've got a lot of head control and are constantly turning your head to follow voices and light.
  • you love your baths and diaper changes - never cry for either.
  • you seem to be losing your hair at about the same rate as me...good thing we both had quite a bit to begin with!
  • your brothers are big fans :)
  • I could go on but I'm getting lazy and you're in my lap getting hungry (shocker!)


not technically perfect...

but I still love it! One of my biggest challenges each day is making sure these boys stay off of Iz long enough for her to eat/sleep/rest in peace! Any opportunity to hold her while she's alert and not fussy, they JUMP at. She's pretty tolerant of their excessive and smothering hugs and kisses though. We'll see how long it lasts before she starts getting her revenge!

A quick layout share too...I've been doing a series of templates for download at 2Peas and this layout was the result of my most recent. I'm embarrassed to even calculate how many photos I've taken in the past 3 weeks. It's been extravagant, to say the least :p

And finally, just a couple of links :)
  • Being the child of the 80s that I am, I almost squealed when I saw this. You're a big fat liar if you aren't thinking "I pity the fool that doesn't buy my onesie!" after looking at that link.
  • Knitting a few of these for recent and impending babies (there are so many!) SO cute and SO easy!



did she know I would call Isabella my little monkey? (among other nicknames.)

The loooong toes and even longer fingers. The slight covering of hair on her back. Her little "o" mouth that appears as if it could easily produce he "ooh, ooh" monkey call.

She also sent the most adorable little knitted dress. How can you not adore the butt ruffles? I really do have some awesome friends...I've been overwhelmed by all the sweet stuff you guys have sent! I'll share some more cuteness when I get some photos!

Today though, we're off to grandma and grandpa's for some Slip-n-Slide fun! Have a great week :)
