I've come across a compilation of photos recently that are just a bunch of random fun memories. They don't really have any sort of category to fit in or any special lesson or story to go with them, but they are parts of our normal day to day stuff that make up memories. They are photos that make me smile and illustrate how much fun we have having you around.
Here's a fun couple of pictures! These are two photos of you in the tub. No, you weren't covered in paint; these are Tub Tints! We have these nifty little tablets that you add to bath water to make them different colors (without dyeing the tub or the kiddo), and you absolutely love them! In fact, they helped you learn your colors. Green and purple are your favorites, so that's why I added them, but we have done every color of the rainbow. I have to admit, the color red was a little disturbing. It was like you were bathing in a pool of blood, so I have to admit, I'm not wild about repeating that one. And yellow is also a little funny. There's this old adage about not eating yellow snow, and that bath tub of yellow water sorta reminded me of that. No, I didn't share my opinions of red and yellow with you. I'm not THAT bad of a Mommy. But you are content with our frequent repeats of green, purple and blue, so it all works out in the end.
of the day. Poor guy, he's been working like crazy, so it was nice for him to have a little bit of a break this past
weekend. You ADORE and worship your daddy, so I know having him around was just awesome for you. We all packed up and went to the park and played on the playground for a while. I'm not sure who had more fun, as Daddy was running around, playing on the monkey bars and helping you go up and down the slides. The two of you also ran the work-out obstacle course, too, and that wore you out! When we came home, you took a three hour nap! Holy moly! It was a super fun Saturday, and we wrapped up our outing having a lunch at What-a-burger and playing after nap. It was a really nice day. This past weekend, Daddy also taught you some more Manly Man stuff, and you watched him shave. Not one to be left out of the action, you sat on the bathroom counter next to him and got a front row seat on this little adventure. It wasn't long before your face was covered in shaving cream, though. Mommy went and created your own little razor by quadruple-taping the plastic cover on a cheap disposable razor, and you and Daddy got to shave together. You took the whole thing very seriously. (And I must take this moment to explain to everyone else reading that there was in NO WAY a chance for you to cut yourself. Not every one call Child Protective Services at once, now...)
So there you have it: my current hodge-podge of favorite photos, and more memories that we've made as a family. We're having so much fun with you, and I can only hope that maybe you'll look back and remember them the same, fond way that we do.
Love you bunches!
