January 25th

C working on his homework

I'm so proud of him for going back to school. How cute is he, doing his homework in his dr pepper pj pants? :)

January 23

Today we had a 70 degree day, in January. So we took advantage by meeting some friends in the park for a picnic and playtime.

Yes, he did insist upon taking his cars, and driving them on the big rocks :)

For some reason, he insisted upon me carrying him on our walk. Very tiring with a 40+ pound toddler but I know the days are fast approaching in which he won't want me to touch him at all, so I will take any opportunity I can now

Playtime at the mall

M sees the whole world as a giant hot wheels track :)

January 20

The weather was perfect today. 70 degrees with a tiny breeze.

C and M were playing outside and M insisted B play too, so of course he did. I think B was having a bad day but its hard to be upset with the unconditional love of a toddler. Somehow them playing outside lead to fashioning a trailer for M's big wheel. I do not even pretend to understand what boys think. I remember B LOVED trailers, apparently M does too.

After playtime we decided we were hungry, so we went to a restaurant with a patio to enjoy the beautiful day.

January 19

I got to get my done in an actual salon. It was quite nice, getting to do something just for me.

When I was done, I wanted to go out with my fancy new hair. Where did we end up? Dairy Queen :) I think there is a "you might be a redneck" joke in there somewhere but I never pass up a chance to spend time with Bailey and he wanted icecream.

January 18

Today we went to toddler swim at this awesome indoor pool with a water play area for the little ones. I can't wait to take him back, but we are both exhausted from playing in the water for two hours with no nap

January 17

We met C for lunch today- but I didn't get a picture because M had my phone the whole time :)

We love to meet Daddy for lunch. M ran up to him and hugged him like he hadn't seen him in years. I wish I did have a video. M is at such a sweet age. I know before long he's gonna be rolling his eyes at me and think I'm the dumbest person ever. But for now he thinks I'm the best, so I will take it

Story time

It tickles me that he insisted upon sitting in the big chair. I got a few strange looks for letting him sit there while I sat on the floor, but

We tried out a new story time at Barnes and Noble, but the lady was not engaging at all. M had fun playing with his new friend R at the trains though :)

This is what happens when I try to take his picture now- I get the back of his head.

January 12

We just got back from the Ft Worth rv show. I'm exhausted from helping M in and out of so many rvs, and from carrying him. He loves his Ma, he won't let anyone else carry him right now. I like that he needs me, but help carrying him would be nice.

I am never happier than when I am with M, B and C. B hates having his picture taken, but I did snap this one quickly before he had a chance to object. I just love seeing M and B together <3

January 11

Today we had our first playdate with our new group. It was almost 70 degrees (in January!) so we met at the park. One mom with a little girl born in November 2010 showed up. I hope this group makes it because I so want to meet some like minded moms and kids for M to play with :-)

January 10

This is a few days late because I was working hard to prepare for a surprise party fot my mom's 50th birthday.

We called her closest friends and family and we all met at the bowling alley and then drove over to her house together. I'm pretty sure she suspected something, but was surprised at who all was there.

Day 9

My Disney planning binder.

We are going to try to go to Disney World in September of this year. M will be almost 3, so old enough to do a lot there, but still so young and innocent.

Its SO overwhelming! I have seen Disney planners on Pinterest before and thought a whole binder was overkill, but- There is just an abundance of information. I felt like I needed somewhere to organize all that I found.

I went to Disney when I was little, but we just stayed one afternoon while we were in Florida for Nana and Pal's business. C went but he doesn't remember much as far as what to do and such. So I consider this our first Disney trip. Hopefully, our first of many...

I will post later about what I put inside the binder. When I figure out what I need in there :-)

But here is the binder, ready to be filled with plans for a magical trip!

Day 6

We have entered the hot wheels stage. Brookshires had them by the checkout and I was so hoping he didn't see them, but he did. So of course he got one.

Day 4

I started a playgroup for attachment parents in my area.  I'm so tired of being surrounded by mainstream moms that judge how I parent. I hope it goes well. I certainly don't need everyone to agree with the way I do things- but it will be nice to casually mention co-sleeping in conversation without fear someone is going to freak out and start yelling at me about ruining my child.
Five moms have joined but there haven't been a lot of rsvps to the events I have put up. We shall see how it goes.

Day 3

More hanging out at home for M. Its cold, everyone seems to be sick- I will just keep him away from germs. I may invest in a bubble.

B and I went to eat (after much begging on my part) and M stayed with Nana. I snapped this pic before I left.

He got a cut on his foot that required kisses AND a bandaid. Although I will say, his little foot looks extra cute adorned with said bandaid.

Dear M's future wife,

Yes, I did teach him to do chores. He loves to do dishes, he throws his own trash away, clears his dinner dishes, helps make up the bed. He even helps vacuum. You're welcome.

I did not, however, teach him to vacuum sitting down while watching tv. That he figured out all on his own. Some things are out of my control.

I love these two...

How adorable is this? My heart melts

Day 2

Ok so my day to day life is pretty boring. M and I just hung out at home and played. It was too cold to do much and M slept through the playdate we were supposed to have today, which i'm ok with because it seems like the whole country is sick.
Uncle B got back from his trip to Tater's land and M was happy to see him. B's hands were dirty and M insisted upon wiping them. <3 Seeing them interact melts my heart.

Project 365- day 1

For years now I have been saying I was going to do a project 365. And this year I am actually doing it. Seriously people- hold me too it because I think it would be amazing to have a record of a whole year of day to day posts.

Today is New Years Day 2013. C is off, I smell the black eyed peas I have on for dinner, M is happily playing. Life is good.

We just got back from taking M to his very first movie in a theater. Finding Nemo in 3d. I was  *shocked* that he sat through almost the whole movie. I'm impressed :)
