We got back in from our cruise late last night. For 4 great nights I was enjoying a 5-Course Meal (or was it 7?) which sometimes included two (yes 2) main entrees & by Thursday night I was eating a Lean Cuisine Frozen Dinner (which I had to heat up all by myself) which tasted exactly as it sounds … FROZEN! I’ll write more about the cruise at some point, but for now visit Amanda’s OHvacation blog set up especially for our trip!! I have no doubt you’ll enjoy it:)
Not that I’ve actually done a good job keeping up with this blog, but if any one out there wonders where I am for the next week … here’s your answer!!!!!
(minus the fuzzy part … I hope my pictures will be a little more clear …. stay tuned & you can see them upon my return!!
My sister, STACI, posted a lovely picture of us with my husband, Pepper (yes that’s his real name) and our son Evan during her ‘MASTER STACI PARTY’. But I decided to post the one taken right before her ‘lovely’ picture … don’t we all look cute:)
We’re finishing our 2nd full week in Big Boy Underwear!!! It’s so easy when you just don’t give them anything to eat or drink … only kidding! The little guy has picked it up so good. We’ve had some accidents (including two ‘big job’ accidents) but all in all it’s gone pretty well. Now there was that time that I was about to pee in my pants when those little words “peepee mommy” came out of the babes mouth as we stood in the Sprint store with NO public restroom, but he held it … praise the Lord!
Now we just need to work on that aim!
A little less than just 1 month ago you couldn’t pay my almost 2-year old Evan to sit still long enough to watch a commercial, much less any normal cartoon. While I’m glad he’s not a baby couch potato, there are certainly occassions where it’d be nice to have just a few minutes of ‘down time’ … i.e.: cooking, cleaning, folding clothes, etc. … you know all those times when you need to accomplish something.
We now have our ‘cartoon’! My husband put on a Stevie Ray Vaughann (he’s a guitar player, Staci) concert video for himself to watch … but who climbs up on the couch all by himself for a front-row seat … EVAN!!! He’s now hooked … probably a bit addicted. He wakes up wanting Stebie Way & goes to sleep wanting Stebie Way. Since the DVD is already skipping, we got a couple replacement Sansana (aka Santana) and Barley (aka Bob Marley) videos as well … they don’t carry the same weight as Stebie, but they’re good in a pinch!
