six months.

remember when i blanked on T's five month mark? well you'll be proud that i was more on point come his six month mark, i mean 6 months...that's half a year! i celebrated by taking him to the doctor for his six month checkup. T celebrated by being in the top percentile for every category.

his hobbies include:

  • eating some baby food (partial to squash)
  • chewing on everything with his two bottom teeth
  • play dates with tank on a daily
  • getting the wiggles right before nap time, bedtime, or any other time
  • being put in his crib at night
  • ending up in mom and dads bed before morning

happy six months my sweet T!

christmas tree goodbye

we spent our weekend with an overnighter in the desert burning our christmas tree. it was dusty. it was windy. it was cold. and it was awesome. there's something to be said about tin foil dinners and smores. we had so much fun that when we returned home the next day me and dj made them again (cause it's that good). Except we appropriately dubbed it urban smores and din din because we made our smores in the microwave and who really says din din? weekends are the best.

tank and weezy would agree but they are too busy licking their bleeding paws. they fetched and played so much the desert sand tore up their feet but i'm pretty sure they were just glad to get outta of the house.

the golden anniversary

apologies for the absence of blogging, a left-behind camera, start of school, and virus infected computer tend to have that effect on my blogging habits. i need to post about our rockin' new years, baby T's six month mark, and our 2012 so far but for now you can hear the mushy gushy......

me and the hubs celebrated our golden anniversay this past weekend. we slept in (as best we could with baby T), made breakfast (vanilla/cinnamon waffles and turkey bacon), dropped baby off, hiked attempted to hike camelback mountain, ate sprinkles , went movie hopping (it felt like we were back in highschool........and it was awesome), and went to dinner. three years in (a lot more if you count how long we dated, but lets not do that)  and this guy still knows the way to my heart. hiking, sprinkles, and a romantic comedy? i'm in. love this man.
a few reasons why i really like this guy

-he puts the term "handy man" to shame. he can built/fix/macgyver anything. he'll deny this but i'm pretty positive it's just his way of not having to built every single project i come up with.

-the man is a baby whisperer. he'd be in high demand if he was a nanny.

-he never leaves for work in the morning without smootching me and T. plus, he doesn't get mad when i scold him for not kissing me in the morning when in reality he did and i was just too tired to realize.

-he looks good in anything he wears.

-he laughs at my awkward attempts to make him laugh. i'm pretty sure my random dance moves i bust out in our kitchen are not worthy of a laugh and encouragement. the man gives me both AND joins in.

- he doesn't call me out when i butcher the lyrics of every song we listen to in the car.

-he has some serious rap skills.

happy anniversary dj!
