Randoms from Our Weekend

Here are a few random photos from our weekend:

I decided to try wearing Violet on my back for the first time in the Beco carrier. I hadn't done it before because first she just seemed to small, and then she got into a hair-pulling phase. Now seemed like the right time, and guess what - she loved it!

In other news, our family had a crab feast this weekend. I'm not a fan, but the Hubster dug right in. I don't think the taste justifies the horror of ripping apart something this disgusting-looking piece by piece, but that's just me:


I did, however, very much enjoy the rest of the food. When it was time for dessert the Hubster asked if I preferred strawberry cake or cheesecake. I had one of each, of course! It was great to hang out with family on such a perfect summer day - baby pools, bubbles, badminton, horseshoes, and general lounging about were just a few of the activities that too place.

In cat news, Charlie thinks he is a hunter and has claimed this (faux) sheepskin as his own. He looked so cute laying there in all of his fluffy glory.

And last but not least, a few randoms of the babe. She has recently started imitating us a LOT. When I say 'thank you' or 'I love you' she sometimes imitates the inflection of my voice. Kind of like, 'Ah uh oooo'. It's sooo cute.

She also has a bit of an obsession with the Hubster's belly button. We eventually showed her that she, too, had a belly button, and she was thrilled. She erupted into delighted squeals and almost fell over trying to get a good look at the thing. Now when we ask, "Where's your belly button?" she pulls up her shirt and points at it. I die every time. You have to beware if you ask though - she will usually want to see your belly button as well! After she learned that my parents also taught her where her nose was. When she points to it her finger usually ends up in a nostril. I mean, it's just the perfect resting spot for those chubby little fingers, right?

Oh this little girl gets cuter every day. It doesn't seem possible as every day I think she must be the cutest person on Earth, but every day she manages to raise the cuteness bar. It's set pretty high, so sorry to any of you out there who were hoping to steal the title - I don't think it's gonna happen.

Hope you all had a great weekend as well! If you entered the Tea Collection giveaway, stay tuned - a winner will be announced shortly...good luck!


  1. Such lovely photos... err... maybe not of that crab though. I am like you, I too cannot justify how good it would taste with how ugly and weird looking it is. Ick!

  2. I love her I love her I love her!
