I Got It All Done

I had quite a bit of work due today at 5pm. Thank goodness Alex and Madison entertained each other: I also discovered that Madison is not a smart dog (Yes she is begging to go outside while staring at the dog door Wade installed): Alex is finally sitting up enough for his toy car. He’s…

    Holly, Alex is just too cute.I love the on of him sitting in the deskchair.

It’s Done. It’s Done. It’s Finally Done!

The painters have packed everything up and left for good. My house is done and I love it! The before (again): The after: While I was taking the house pictures I noticed that my flowers are thriving. Right after planting: Today:

Method Is Awesome

Wade told me about Method products quite a while ago and I was intrigued. More than being environmentally friendly, I love a good startup story. The company started with two guys. As I recall, Target finally agreed to carry the products after the people in charge were convinced to give the products a trial run….

A Full Day Of Fun

Wade has been out of town the past few days and he has definitely been missed. Wade almost always gets up with Alex at the 5 or 6 am wakeup and works magic to get him to sleep to 7:30 or 8. It doesn’t work when I try. The past few mornings Alex has ended…

How I Do Cloth

I have to admit that an ad for cloth diapers on a baby website got me interested. I knew of one person who used cloth diapers, but I was never around her or her kids to ask questions. I did tons of reading online and even ventured to a store (Nicki’s Diapers) 1.5 hours away…

Sunday Already?

Somehow Sunday always arrives a little too quickly and signals the end of the weekend. Alex had a great night and didn’t get us up until 8. Then he was quite happy to play with Madison while I ate breakfast: Alex’s good spirits continued after he was dressed for church so I took a few…

Busy Bees

Today was busy! Alex awoke at 5 am and Wade worked his magic to get him back to sleep till 8 (thank goodness). I got up with Alex and fed him his cereal before heading to the gym: We got home just in time to say good-bye to Wade as he went to play raquetball…

Photographer? Anyone?

Now that I have a happy, smiling baby I want some professional photographs taken. I was looking for somewhere other than a department store/babystore/mall store, but I wasn’t sure where to start. Wade suggested posting on Craig’s List under gigs. I thought that was a great idea – until I received 10 million responses. I…
