Long Overdue Photo Friday

Poor Photo Friday must be feeling so neglected. 

Life has been a little cray lately. 

D started crawling the weekend before he turned 7 months old. I just realized that was 7/7. This kid must have something for repeated numbers… D’s due date was 12/12/12.

D has yet again, been on a sleep boycott. And I’ve started one of my own. Insomnia sucks. Woman cannot survive on 5 hours of sleep a night and caffeine alone. Trust me, I’m trying. 

And life in general has just been busy. But who doesn’t have a busy life, parent or not? Yay, Adulthood! 

 

D’s crazy sleep acrobatics. Some of these really crack me up!

D has been so anti-nap lately that I needed to snap pictures of him sleeping to remind myself he actually does nap once in a while.

B is a HUGE Notre Dame fan. B’s Aunt Di gave D his first Notre Dame hat as a Christmas present. Seven months later, it finally (sorta) fits! The onesie says Let’s tailgate! Party at my crib. (Bring your own milk.) Hilarious!

A week and a half after D discovered his ability to crawl, he decided to pulling up on furniture, toys and people was the next cool thing to do. I swear, this child is a daredevil. He crawled over to the couch, pulled up to standing, crawled up in to my lap, crawled up me and started crawling along the back of the couch. The BACK OF THE COUCH! Mr. Adventurous was really proud of himself. And really pissed when I took him off and told him NO!

My mother is doing some remodeling of her house and came across this gem. 

This is me. D definitely looks like his Momma!

No big deal, just Daddy and D watching some sporting event sans shirts.

Mommy and Daddy had a night out for a wedding and D spent the night at G&G Vino’s for the first time. Too bad we didn’t get a pic of us together. But not really… B’s jacket was awful. I have zero idea why he thought a blue plaid blazer was going to be a fashionable choice. 

It's amazing what a shower, doing your hair and putting on some makeup will do to one's self esteem.

I’ll leave you with one of my all time fave D pics. He had an adorable, huge, gummy, cheesy smile going on. And then he saw the flash.

D is not a fan of flash photography.

Yes, I am the mom who doesn’t dress her child unless going out in public. Totally cuts down on laundry. Plus it was so. stinkin’. hot. in Michigan this week. 

 

Hope you had a great few weeks!

Photo Friday

D had a big week this week!

We went on a  grocery shopping adventure and D sat in the cart like a big boy. I’m too short to see over him in his car seat and there’s room for not a darn thing to put him in his car seat in the cart partI was going to wear him, but we got to the grocery store in the middle of a downpour that would. not. let. up. and I forgot the baby Bjorn  in my haste to get us out of the rain. Oops. D LOVED it! And I loved that the safety strap clipped right under his arm pits on the off chance he would lose his balance and couldn’t face plant in to the handle.

D is loving eating baby food and gets upset if I don’t give it to him quickly enough, but his toes are still his favorite snack. Yummmm, toe jam!

Eating my toes is so exhausting.

D finally decided that napping was okay again. Thank goodness!

His car seat is probably his favorite place to sack out. He falls asleep every. time. he’s in that thing. 006

Meeting his new friend, Liam, really tuckered him out.

And the weekly performance of Sir D. Vino’s crib acrobatics.

Practicing for school? I am SO not ready for that to happen!

A complete 180* turn from how I put him to bed.

Two nights in a row he’s slept with him bum straight up.

D even got some rather patriotic smooch marks from Tortilla’s red lipstick.

D loves his Tortilla!

Summer is quickly becoming my favorite season. Getting to stay home with D and the summer produce is amazing in Michigan! Our fridge is filled with locally grown and organic corn, grapes, peaches, cucumbers, plums, strawberries, raspberries, watermelon and cherries. Healthy snacks galore!

And Mother Nature has a sense of humor…

I laughed really hard when I saw this... And again when I put in the post. :)

Hope you all had a fabulous and safe 4 of July and a wonderful weekend!
