Flash Back Friday!

Guess who is in my belly?
This was taken exactly a year ago today, when I was about 19 weeks pregnant with Dell.  At this point we didn't know yet if he was a boy or a girl!

Splish Splash Bath ~ Day 97

A bath is so much more fun when you have a buddy to take it with!
If the smiles don't say it, I don't know what else will!

Drying off.  He's becoming a Binky Baby for sure.  Possibly a little addiction going on?

And a video to go along!

Getting There ~ Day 96

 Hello there.  Wanna peak into what I have been working on?
You want me to show them Mommy?
OK.  Here goes!
I almost got it....
I'm up.... but I can't move.  Ugh.  This is frustrating!

Little Buddies ~ Day 95

Meet baby "J", Dell's little buddy.  Isn't he adorable??
They were born about a month apart.

I see a childhood friendship in the making!
Remember the other day when I said Dell started saying "Dada"?  Well we caught it on video today.  Listen closely because he whispers it the first time!

Summer Is Back ~ Day 94

I love how he is so chill in the swing.  Today we had a huge break from the heat & humidity!  It was so nice to be outdoors again & not feel like you were melting!
There was a nice breeze.  Ahhhh.  It was heavenly!
I managed to get the kids on staggered naps today, so Dell and I got a little one on one time.

And while his big sister was in bed for the night, he decided he should stay up & get to know our kitty a little better.  It was so cute to see him reaching out to pet her!

Movin' ~ Day 93

Dell is really making some moves to try & crawl. 

 We went to the park this evening.
I just love my monkey's face here! It's like "Hey Mommy!  I know what you are doing!"
And then he gave me a sweet, slobbering smile!  I really have no clue where all this drool is coming from.  I don't see any new teeth attempting to pop through.  But the drool just keeps a' comin'!
After the park it was time for a bath..... In the big tub!

Now?  He is sleeping like an angel.

Upside Down ~ Day 92

Because I can't get enough of my little man eating!
For some reason he was so fascinated with the water today, even though we have done this a million times!  I guess it was the first time he really "noticed" it! 
Hanging upside down on Daddy's lap!

Guess what?

Dell's first word was "Dada" and it made it's debut yesterday!

"Hey Ladies" ~ Day 91

Is this much cuteness
even legal?


Macro Friday ~ SweetTarts

Five Question Friday

This will be my first time participating in Five Question Friday.  I hope you enjoy getting to know a little bit more about me! 

1. What were your school colors?
  We were the Yellow Jackets so black n' gold it was.

2. What's the best compliment you ever received? 
That I am a good mother.

3. Do you buy cheap or expensive toilet paper?  
Probably middle of the road here.  A good store brand, or one of the name brands on sale.

4. Have you ever had a surprise party thrown for you?
Yes, my best friend & my husband threw me a surprise baby shower when I was pregnant with my daughter.  And I also had friends throw me a surprise 18th party.  It was awesome.  They got us a hotel room and everything!
 Or have you had one for someone else? 
No,  but I would love to some time!

5. What is one material possession that you "can't live    without"? 
Boy, this is sad.  I guess my iPhone.  It keeps me in touch with everybody, b/c I can check my blog, my google reader, twitter, facebook, email...  I'm addicted.  Is there a 12 step program somewhere??

And there you have it!  My first ever Five Question Friday.  For more FQF or to join in the fun yourself, click the icon below!  Thanks Mama M.!

Flash Back

Flashing back almost a year for this one.  This is from September 2009 when I was 27 weeks pregnant with Dell!  To our surprise the Perinatologist gave us a 3D ultrasound that day & we got our first "real" glimpse at our little boy.  So sweet! Looks to me like his eyes are open.  What do you think?

Happy Friday everyone!

You Capture ~ Black & White

Time for another photo Challenge!  I wanted to play with this picture I took of Kensi & Dell watching it storm outside.  Here is what I came up with!

 I just love their matching diapers!  They are the Target Up & Up brand & I must say they are great!  I only have one complaint.  All sizes look exactly alike, and there is nothing on the diaper to say what size it is!  So we often get Dell's & Kensi's mixed up because even holding them up next to each other it is hard to tell!  Needless to say she has worn his size a few times, & he has wore hers!  Oops!

Go to You Capture below to see more black & white photos!
