From the Mouths of Babes

Lilly's gestures right now...
pointing- at everything!
Waving hello and goodbye
Kisses- mouth open and smashed into my cheek
Arms up- Here I am!
Clapping- pat a cake

Growling- i want/like that
Raspberries- silly
patting mouth- bababababa she jumps her whole body to do this
Uh-uh-uh-uh!- Pay attention to ME!
Mmmmm- yummy

Real words...
Hi- Her first word
Mama- sigh
Dada- she said this months before mama
Papa- grandpa
fffff- woof, dog
Baba- ball, bottle, bubbles, boat
Nana- banana
Nnnnna- No

Lone Lonley Alone

Sometimes being a mom is a very lonely job... and yet I would kill for 30 minutes alone?

My Helper

Er, Master of Destruction?

Can't you see she is helping me pack for the move? Just look at all that packing material she's spreading around for me!



Ok, maybe she's just making a huge mess.
Especially when it sticks to her and she tracks it around the house...

But that's alright.

This mess kept her entertained long enough for me to pack up a few boxes.

Progress... kinda.

Did I Mention?

That Hubby cooks?

Mmmm... this was a tasty dinner.

We need to make it again soon. Grilled corn on the cob with some kind of Mexican saucy goodness. And that wonderful shrimp swimming in garlic and butter. YUM!

Roll Over

Hubby is funny. Real Funny.

Here's an example. We have been watching Mad Men. It's written by the same folks who wrote The Sopranos, so you knew it was going to be good. Anyway we were up late the other night and had just finished watching an episode. I mentioned how grateful I am to live with far less defined gender roles than our grandparents.

I know, I know this coming from the stay at home mom. who likes to sew. and bake. and garden....

But I DO work from here. Has anyone noticed the silence for the last month? Didn't think so, but anyway I have been working a lot. It isn't just about being allowed to work these days. The attitude is totally different than when my grandparents were growing their families. Hubby really respects what I do for a living.

Here's a couple samples of my recent renderings of designs.

Anyway. My recent work is really pretty off the subject.

The point is: Hubby is FUNNY. And it was very late. We were both feeling a little silly and sleepy.

I brought up how in a recent episode a woman's clever turn of phrase was compared by a man to a dog doing a trick. Hubby immediately suggested I roll over. HAHA!

I've been chuckling for days over that one :)

Here's a cute dog... She knows a few tricks :) Goof ball.
