Oh haair no...

People have asked me numerous times, "So, has Mini ever tried to cut her own hair?" To which I would I would smugly respond, "Oh, no. Never! She's way to smart to ever do anything like that." Well. She proved me wrong. She decide that she didn't like her bangs. So, what better way to rid herself from them than cutting them off. Oh, the logic of a 5 year old.

Backyard bounty

Things in our yard.


Do you see it? Look closer.


A baby rabbit. Enough cuteness to make Mini have seizures of joy.


Morel Mushrooms. And yes. That is a Trader Joe's receipt.


Can't wait to batter and fry. Yum.


Lastly the most lethal of all the backyard occupants. Weighing in at 23 and 41 lb. these savage creatures have been known to devour an entire banana in less than 30 seconds, avoid naps like the plague, and bring an entire room to shambles in record time.

He walks!

Mini M. took her sweet time to learn how to walk. She was a very cautious baby, and figured that if she couldn't do something perfectly immediately, it wasn't worth trying. (She still is exactly like that now.) Because she didn't start walking until 15 months, I figured that we'd have a while before W. attempted it. I was wrong. The past few days he has been kamikaze baby, launching himself from any place he happens to be standing. Each day he gets better, but the poor fella has many a bump and bruise to show for his imitations of a little drunk old man trying to walk. The thought momentarily crossed my mind that maybe I should get something like this. But... I'm not sure how I feel about my baby wearing an upside down mini sumo wrester's underpants. Stylish... no?

Small man walking.

Ug. I know! I have to stop slacking off on the whole posting thing. We have been having such wonderful weather, that it's been hard to come inside.





About Me

My photo
Welcome to Em's world. I am a stay at home/ work at home (when the odd job presents itself) mom. I have the privilege to spend every single day with my sweet/crazy 5 yr. old daughter, Mini M. and my little man, Baby W. who was born May 3rd. I can't forget the best part of my life- my hub. C.N., who happens to be the sweetest, funniest fella alive. We have been married almost 6 years. So that's me and my fam.
