Our Week in iPhone photos w.7


Liam and I went to a 5k for another patient at the clinic, Marnie.  Marnie is 2 years off chemo with no sign of reoccurance!

I ran; Liam played shy.  He was also honored as a local hero!


Daddy was away running the Lansing Marathon.  We stayed home playing

 So good at the puzzles.  Matched the animals together, just not correctly.

I dub thee pretzel truck

 It is so nice when for .25 seconds your child can entertain himself.

Monday- Friday

Sorry the days all blur together by the end of the weekend.

 Cozy Coupe + Calliou = Drive in Movie
More entertaining self with basketball

 MMMM.  "ma-Nana"
 I spy you!

More playing in the "new" yard

Busy Busy Busy

Always gotta keep busy or the voices start telling me to do wild things.
Steve Brown


But really I have been busy doing things that make me happy.   Besides the obvious spending time with family.
I have been running and sewing and just plain crafting.

Wordless{ish} Wednesday

Child tries to climb out of the crib, most parents try to  stop it.  Me?  I tell him to stay put while I run to grab my camera!

It is so hard not to laugh at this child! Okay- maybe impossible, because I defiantely laugh every night while putting him to bed.
No matter how tired he is he procrastinates.

It first began with his request to be rocked. So each night we rock him for a few minutes before laying him in his crib.

His next request was a blanket. He wanted us to rock him for a few minutes, then cover him up (while still rocking) and then finally you can lay him down.

Now its the "Night Night Song". We have always sang to Liam while rocking him
Night, Night Liam
Night, Night Liam
Night, Night Liam
It's time to go to sleep

Sometime around Christmas Liam started adding his own verses. Night Night Gamma, Night Night Tia

And now for the last month{ish} he tried to keep the song going. Some highlights from tonight...
Night Night airplane
night night helicopters
night night clouds
night night chips
night night dinosaurs
Night night downstairs
Night Night cozy coupe
Night Night stroller

And I could seriously keep going!

But he has always been so cute when he sleeps!!!

Our week in iphone photos w.6

Not much this week... I had to go back to work...
Out Targeting with my little man... apparently I am very predictable in this. As I was "encouraging" Liam into sitting in the cart while on the phone with my sister-in-law "are you at target?" and then next day at work a co-worker commented on how everytime she is at target she has to question "Is this something Fudge has?" before she buys anything.
This week i was questioning Can I wear a fedora?
Liam can no doubt pull off sunglasses!
Of course Liam had to test our the tractors at our house for own "lawn renovation"
Best ths week was Liam had a bath in the "big tub"; his needed cleaning. He could not figure out what the noise was when I pulled the drain (looking up the faucet for water to come out). Why? I dont know... the sound isn't different for his tub.
And finally... DATE NIGHT! Brian's dad is in town this week, so we had a rare night out alone. Dinner at CheeseCake Factory and movie; An American Reunion.
How was your week?

Little Bits of Happiness, w.2

What makes me happy this week? MY YARD!!!
We have lived in our house for almost 5 years. During this time I can count the number of times on one hand that we have mowed the back yard. Because it had no grass!
I can also count the number of time that anyone besides the dog used the back yard. It just wasn't pretty.
So a few weeks ago Brian got some guys and a tractor over here, they pulled out a bunch of trees and those terrible "steps" in the yard.
Sod was layed this week.
We still can't use the yard yet, but we are so excited for it!

Our week in iphone photos w.5

Well it has been a while since I shared our live via iphone. Today I amazed my SIL with the photos an iphone can take!

Today is the last day of our vacation. We're going to wait until Liam is ready to go to sleep tonight then begin our drive back to the Sweet Carolinas.

Here is what we were up to this week.

Looking all cute on the elevator
The beach- OF COURSE!

Little Bits of Happiness, w.1

I have seen this thread among the blog-y world lately. I have so much to be happy {thankful} for I could not wait to join in!

We have spent the last week in Flordia with family. It has been a dream. Best of all Liam has loved it! Each morning he wakes up and runs to the window. "AQUA"

Since we stay on a private residence in a popular beach, there is a key you need to use to go up the elevator { or alligator as Liam calls it} to go up to the apartment or even to get to the beach. Liam demands the key and runs to the elevator to "wind it".

Last summer Liam screamed if you wanted to go into the pool. As much as he loved bath time, he wanted nothing to do with a swimming pool. This year he says "down stairs, swim. Come on!". He throws his face into the water. Asks to go under. And jumps from the side of the pool into your arms. He LOVES the water!

This week has made me happy. Liam makes me happy. I am so happy to spend time relaxing with my family.

First Trip to the Beach


We arrived at our destination at 6:30 this morning. We drove through the night to make the trip easier on Liam.

After checking in at Casa Armitage and socializing for a bit it was time to take Liam down to the beach for the first time.

He liked the sand. The water wasn't too bad. But the sand moving out from under his feet when the waves washed back out really freaked him out.
