This is a photo-heavy post–obviously 🙂
Head down, below the photo gallery, for the text…
(Clicking on the first photo will allow you to scroll through the photos like a slide show.)
We’re getting better…but, some nights he still just can’t make it though.
He actually slept in However…my oldest needed to be out of the house by 7:45…so, I didn’t get to sleep in.
Soggy diaper and an empty tummy = sad baby.
The big dog just can’t handle herself around the highchair. She always ends up in doggie jail during meals. (I should also add that Archie can’t handle NOT giving her food, either.)
First, I find him ‘sorting’ the box of Tampons…
…then I remember to ‘lock’ the cabinets.
And, back to the bathroom. This time he found his FAVORITE toy, the plunger.
This is when the meanest mom ever has to take away his favorite toy.
The temper tantrum, while wearing the necklace he put on himself was just WAY too cute 🙂
This is when we BOTH learned he could now crawl INTO the bathtub.
Watching the trucks helps calm him down.
The Price is Right wheel is ALWAYS a fav.orite.
And, so are books…
And, watching the dog drink.
I needed to run to Target…so, shoes ON!
And, while I’m getting ready, here I find him, putting cans into his walker. (Just FYI: they fall right out the leg holes.)
Oh babies…they think they can drive to Target.
And, then they look like this when they realize they’re stuck in the backseat…again.
Shoes always end up undone while he rides in the car. It’s odd.
The cart ride starts like this…
then turns sideways…
His naps = My work.
Nap time, is my work time. Today Archie got to sit with me while I finished updating my website…
…and snack as I finish a couple last emails.
He thinks Baby Lips are for him…
Before he gets back to the plunger, it’s time to head outside. (At least that’s what he says 🙂 )
Pushing things–a huge favorite.
And, so are sticks. The bigger the better.
Little bugs are just fascinating lately.
More little bugs. We watched the ant home for five, straight, minutes.
Oh, the trucks are incredible to him.
When my oldest got home from our state fair, she had cookies. So, he had cookies, too!
BBQ, pulled chicken is one of his favorites.
However, BBQ chicken always means bath time.
Not too many more days of sink baths…
Why is every not toy, a favorite toy?
The more climbing, the better. I find him up here a lot.
Between cleaning and working, I never stop. All day.
All he wanted were her Oreo’s.
He tried five times before abandoning this idea. Turns out, trucks do not fit into a kitchen drawer.
His sister finally shared her Oreo’s. Seriously. Out of all things to give a clean baby, right before bed time. I had to laugh as I busted him back by the plunger.
The Oreo finally got finished…by all of them.
This was a tough one–I wanted the photo, but, by night time, I’m so exhausted I couldn’t risk the flash 🙂
It’s hard to picture this little one screaming, throwing, making messes, getting dirty and laughing at the word no. He’s just an angel…right!?
I SO wanted to quickly share this personal project I just did. It’s a super informal, very simple, day-in-the-life session with my little one…and me. I was thinking the other day (aka: procrastinating what I was supposed to be doing) and I remembered how much much his older sister LOVED looking at her baby pictures when she was little. So, armed with that memory and a little inspiration from an Ernie and Bert book–I grabbed my new, Galaxys5, and spent the day, casually, documenting, and telling the story, of baby Archie’s day. My goal is to put these together in two ways…into something that he can’t, easily, destroy (and is easily replaceable if he does) and something a little more formal to hang onto. I wish I had one of these from when my daughter was little. I mean, we have so many random photos…but nothing like this. Nothing that shows a day-in-the-life.
Anyway…I love this. I, honestly, can’t describe just HOW much I love it. Each photo tells just a tiny story of our ‘normal’…of our day. The photos aren’t the most amazing, quality-wise, but I couldn’t care less. I don’t look incredible in all of them…but, again, couldn’t care less. I get a day to keep 🙂
