The mailman has been good to me, too. He brought me the free bag I won from Zinny Lou Totes:
It's sooo cute, I love it. I use it as a combo diaper bag & purse now that Bean is a little older. So I no longer scream I! HAVE! A! BABY! WITH! ME! as I lug around huge, bulging bags full of supplies everywhere we go. I am so cool. Although I will probably regret that the time we are out and I really need a fourth change of clothes, duct tape, spaghetti strainer, and a handmade llama-hair blanket for him. The mailman also brought me the cutest sweatshirt I ordered from MamaBargains.com. I went with the 18 month size so he can wear it in the fall, it's a gray hoodie (no strings!) with a stegosaurus on it and it glows in the dark. It sells at Nordstrom for $35 and I got it for $10.50. I am so thrifty. I am also so humble, apparently. Anyway, next the mailman is going to bring me a cookbook called "Toddler Cafe: Fast, Healthy, and Fun Ways to Feed Even the Pickiest Eater" (hey, I had a gift card to use up!). The word in the title that had me sold was "Fast," because I really don't like spending a lot of time in the kitchen. No, it's not because I'm a Busy Mom on the Go. It's because I'm a Lazy Mom Who Hates Cooking. I find the preparation of meals to be a huge waste of time. Eating the meals, however... now that's something worth doing. Unfortunately, you can't have one without the other (unless you have a personal chef like Oprah), so I thought I would invest in some inspiration. As proof that my purchase was timely, here is Bean eating dinner last night. Avocado, corn, and beans. Thrown onto his tray in three piles. He was thrilled, actually. Keep their expectations low and they are always happy.
And because you've waited long enough, here are some more pictures of my little man.
At our brunch a week and a half ago (still thinking about that omelet), we let Bean have some grapefruit when he reached for it, ready to snicker at his sour faced response. Which never came. The kid likes grapefruit! He's weird.
One of the highlights of Bean's week is when he sneaks past mommy and gets into Evey's food and water bowls. How can I complain when he feeds the dog?
