A few pictures

I follow a photography blog that gives tips once a week on how to
improve your photography and other ideas dealing with photography.
Last week she said you should take pictures that tell a story.

So, I gave it a try.

Here is a story that has been happening a lot at our house lately.


I am glad that I can laugh about this now...

And we did get one smile out of all those pictures,
but it has terrible exposure :(

Happy Half Birthday

Spencer is 1 1/2 today!!! Holy Cow!
He is pretty much the smartest 18 month old in the world...
(or close to it I think :)
He can:
 Count to three
Do puzzles like a pro
Knows most animal sounds and body parts 
Get into anything
Figure out how to turn anything on or off
Figure out how to open or break anything
Climb onto everything
and a bunch of other really smart things that I can think of right now.

He has started to attach to things now.
 When he goes to sleep he has to have his cup of water,
 his little blanky and his dog, Scout.
(Well super, while looking up a link for Scout,
 I found out there is a recall. Just what you like to hear)

He is getting his 13th tooth.

He is waking up around 6:30 every morning
That = grumpy :(
(Spenc and mommy)

He does takes great naps
(she typed as her said child started waking up from a short nap)

He loves nursery!!!
Funny side note. I have been waiting and waiting for the day he was 18 months so that he could go to nursery. I mean I have been counting down since he was like 3 months old. Now that he is able to go I am all worried that he will miss me and need me. I feel all worried to leave him. But the good news is, he did just fine last Sunday.
Didn't even miss me...that is a good thing, right?

He is so busy and full of energy.
 Sitting still is a rare happening with him.
 He loves to be moving and doing.
 If I lay on the floor I know I better be ready to be jumped on. 

He is testing limits like never before.
 He looks at me with a sneaky grin when
 he is going something he knows he shouldn't.
 Good think I am a darn patient woman
Or something like that.

I am going to have to add pictures later
 because he really is waking up from a short nap.
I was hoping that since we got up at 6:20
 this morning he would take a longer nap.
Oh well.

Happy Half Birthday little guy.
We sure love you!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss. What an inspirational guy...

  • Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.
  • Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
  • Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.
  • You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.
  • Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
  • Just tell yourself, Duckie, you're really quite lucky!
  • I like nonsense; it wakes up the brain cells.
  • You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose.
  • Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.
  • You're on your own, and you know what you know. And you will be the guy who'll decide where you'll go. Oh the places you'll go.
