March Madness!


March2011 018

Madness! This kid is everywhere.  My camera won’t even focus on this dude.

We have a full fledged crawling maniac!

March2011 001

I’m having to cage this wild man to get stuff done.  He started crawling during the second week in March & hasn’t stopped.  We’re not sure which day exactly but we did see him go halfway across the room while we where eating dinner on the sofa.  Great Moment! 

  He also starting pulling up last week.  I walked into his room one night and there he was proud, smiling, and  chomping on the side of the crib.

Everything is a fun adventure now!

We also put him in his big boy car seat on Friday 3/25 & he loves it!  I went with the Britax Boulevard #1 because it’s one of the safest and #2 because it has side cushions and his head won’t flop while napping. (nice suggestion CLQ)  The firemen at the Bayside station were kind enough to tighten and inspect it for me.  That’s a neat service they provide. It gave me peace of mind!

I love the cowmooflage!  Makes me happy when I look in the rear view mirror- Mrs. Jacqueline also has a cow in her car.  Dennis wouldn’t do it- his is blue.

-Shed Weekend 2011-


St. Patty's Day 025

I know this looks like the aftermath of a massive tornado but it’s not.   It’s progress people!    We, as in our sweet neighbors (to whom we cannot repay) + family + friends, are building a


This is the backyard today:

The Shed Weekend 015

It still looks pretty junked out but notice that cute little cottage in the back.  This means we’re well on our way to massive storage, organization galore, and outdoor outlets to power a killer backyard birthday party! 

Right Rhett?!

The Shed Weekend 016

St. Patty's Day 017

St. Patty's Day 009

Things to remember:

He started crawling & pulling up on the side of his crib this week.

Loves Green Beans, Cereal, Mommy, & Daddy!

Doesn’t like to sleep in his own bed.  We’re training him & it’s rough.

Likes to go outside and look out the window

Let’s Duke kiss him all over all the time

Blows raspberries all the time

Still digs his jumper- loves it when we watch him jump real high.
