    Sunday Sweets: Escape Artist

    He increasingly escapes from diaper changing time these days, with knowing how to roll away and sit himself up, and crawl backwards. We’re waiting for him to figure out forward motion, but since he knows he can sit up, he just pushes backwards until he’s on his butt, and hasn’t realized forward is a good option. Plus, he’s pulling himself up to his knees to get stuff off of the coffee table and couch now, so uh… we might have a straight-to-walking kid on our hands. I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!

    Sunday Sweets: Halloween Edition

      This year, we all went on our very first Trick-or-Treat adventure with Asa’s cousins; Mr. Owl and I have never gone, and it’s Asa’s first Halloween. So we got dressed up in our costumes (Mr. Owl as Brand from the Goonies, me a generic 80’s girl at his request, Asa a frog) and traipsed around a shopping center asking for candy from store owners.

At one point, I walked up to a booth with all four of my nephews scurrying around me, and the lady…

He goes to bed at eight or nine, only to wake up at midnight, at four am, at six am, and then at 7:30am for good. And last night, he woke up at 2am. It’s been like this for two weeks now. This little chubby being, who used to take gloriously long 2 hour naps twice a day, who used to sleep from eight or nine pm until five or six  in…

    Saturday Sweets: Pirate baby

    I think this outfit makes Asa look like a miniature Smee. And he’s the cutest Pirate Baby you ever did see, right? Haha! Oh, I love this boy. Really, it’s not quite hot enough for him to wear this outfit yet, but I’m starting to look forward to fall and everything it contains, and I’m hoping he’ll still fit this when it gets cooler out! As you can see, he has learned to blow raspberries, and does it all. day. long. It’s like his new favorite thing to do. That, and talk. And talk. And talk. He’s sort of learning how to do his “da” sounds now, but mostly it’s…

    Just a few little snaps of Asa and his second-cousin Abigail on a sunny afternoon. Aren’t they the cutest? I think they look like little tiny chubby old people. Happy Sunday! Bloglovin | Chictopia | Facebook | Twitter | Pinterest | Instagram | Fiction Press
