Sunday snapshots

If there's one thing that I love more than a caramel fudge brownie frappe on a hot summer day, it's getting a mani and pedi having a happy Bean. And lately, despite the fact that we are all fighting colds, he has been one smiley, energetic little man. He'd better be careful, I'm going to start thinking I'm a good mom or something.

Now I know you all hate when I post pictures... you're always clamouring, "Enough with the photos, we want to hear your brilliant, totally unique observations on life with a toddler!" But today, I am posting some of the backlog of cuteness in my picture folder.

Please forgive me.

This is the reason that I no longer bother to alphabetize our DVD collection. (And yes, I do have a copy of Robin Hood: Men in Tights. The real question is, why don't you?)

Is there anything more fun than undermining mom's authority? Bean thinks not. I sent the dog to her crate for stealing food from out of Bean's hands. Two seconds later, this:

I wonder what they are looking at?

Because two wooden spoons are better than one. (And because I love his jammies.)

He has so much fun playing with his daddy.

Bean pulls his weight by watering our dead lawn.

Gee, didn't see that coming...

Last Wednesday, Bean and I and his preschool friends went to a local beach. Throwing rocks in the water is a lot more fun than throwing rocks in our yard.

He contemplates the meaning of life as the northwest fog rolls out.

I discovered that "waterproof" sposie diapers refer to keeping water out... but not holding the pee in. Which my shirt and the stroller learned the hard way. But luckily you can't tell that in any of the pictures of just him.


Guess I should start shaving my legs more, huh? (And if you actually think those are my legs, I hate you.)

Bean's first bubble bath! (Also: I think it's time to paint the master bathroom. Could there be any more white in these pictures? It's sad when a turtle bath toy is the "focal point" of your room design.)

He is the cutest thing EVER!!! I absolutely love his haircut. I'm glad you have a happy baby...I have a sick one currently. :(

Hope his cold goes away soon! Love the picture of him in the bubble bath. Glad he enjoys himself so much. I wasn't aware toddlers COULD be happy ;o)

I totally have Robin Hood Men in Tights. On VHS.

What's funny is I didn't even see him in that first pic until I looked again!

Michelle said...

I just LOVE those pictures! He is so darn cute! Love the water and bath pictures!

It is dangerous to think that when your kids are being so good it is because of your good parenting - only because when they are little terrors we have to take the blame too!

Glad to hear he has been being a little angel though. Send a little good behaiour vibe over here please.

You crack me up! I love the design concept of a single green toy in stark white bathroom. I call it my "too lazy to do anything else for 7 years" design motif. We didn't paint any of the our eggshell colored walls for almost 7 years after we moved in and once we did, we were in such a hurry (part of nesting you know) that we did a half-a&& job of it and there's paint all over everything besides the walls it was intended for....

He's precious! I, too, learned the hard way about the disposable "swimmer" diapers (as did the car-seat cover, stroller and entire outfit. Ugh!)The bubble bath pictures are really the best!
