Just reminiscing!

Here's a video from LAST May 19th. What a difference!

Now I'm racing after him! What a change. Sniff, sniff! He's all grown up!

Our busy month of May



With all of the preparations for our move, blogging and photography has taken a back seat to yard sale preparations and bathroom demolition. But that doesn't mean the Bub hasn't been doing, looking and saying cute things!

Here are a few pictures of our "in between the madness" moments:

At Dean Park with Daddy






Playtime on the deck


on a "two popsicle hot" kind of day!


Don't tell me the water table isn't a pool!



Memorial Day - All dressed up but it rained so we couldn't go to the parade. We had our fun at Panera eating Chocolate Chip Muffies!

The rascal has a serious manipulative streak and I'm a sucker every time.

I went up to check on him tonight, an hour and a half after bedtime, and he was walking towards the door as I opened it. Scared me to death! He requested a diaper change (yeah, right) and that turned into reading books. I was pulling on one side of the book, he on the other, "No more books!" "Book in bed!"

I decided to let him have the book in bed and showed him how to turn on the Rainforest Soother if he wanted to read. I kissed his forehead, told him not to stay up too late and RAN for the door.

I'm afraid to go back in there. He'll want me to reorganize his sock drawer!

The Usual Suspects

Waffles, whipped cream and frozen corn. For dinner.

A little boy and a puddle

Boots are no match for this monster puddle that always forms in front of our driveway. Even wearing them he was wet up to his waist!

Hanging out at a construction site.

The glamour! We are parked at a construction site so Senior Fussy Pantelones can watch a crane move a beam. And...now he's bored and wants to go home. Don't try to talk me about potty training, learning phonics or even eating organic. If we are cruising construction sites until Daddy gets home, we are in the trenches and clearly engaged in Operation Hard Hat. This is WAR! (On Mama's sanity.)

Liam's 2 Year Check Up

The Bub is 29 lbs of love and 35" tall! He also was awarded three stickers for having the biggest sh*t fit when they had to draw blood and give him a shot. There were some scared kiddos in the waiting room when we left!

Here he is at the garden store after he ate only one bite of his bribery ice cream. Apparently, I should have said, "If you're good at the doctors I'll take you somewhere to throw gravel at playground equiptment."

Outside on the deck

With the clock ticking on our time at Kimball Rd., this afternoon seems sweeter. Liam is playing with the water table and Mama is enjoying the tweets of the bird family who has returned to our wonky bird house.

The Bub is 2!!


Our little Monkey turned two years old today! Two years since he went from a wriggly belly bump to the happy and smart toddler he has grown up to become.

He must have been feeling as nostalgic about his birth as Mama was because he decided to usher in the day with a mostly sleepless night. He was working on his birthday cold, I guess, but our Champ didn't let a few boogers damper his enthusiam for cake and presents.

We celebrated with family and friends, lots of sugar, two dozen new cars, trucks and trains and books about cars and trucks and trains. Even Mother Nature gave the gift of two hours of sunshine so the party guests could run off some of the sugar.

Thank you to everyone who came or sent their love to my little man.

Happy Birthday, Liam!

Who's this cutie hanging out at Starbucks?

When it rains you take your active child to the nearest mall and let him run wild. And yes, you buy him Kitty shaped cookies and let him ride the escalator 6 times.
He also got a big kick out of running in and out of Abercrombie, a store I've avoided for over a decade. I winced at the volume of the house music playing in there but it was pretty funny to see him dancing like the future club kid he may become and running up to the mirrors and leaving kisses on them. I consider it payback for all the children who mauled my Sephora stations by dipping their fingers into $30 lipglosses. Karma. Ahhhhhh!

Liam's WORKER MAN!

This was repeated over and over with much enthusiasm and pride by my naked baby as he scrubbed the bathtub walls with my aqua shower poof.

Liam's worker man! Go, Liam, go!
