Day 1 - Where you stood

Photo a day for October

I am going to try to add a photo a day for the month of October! This is quite a lofty goal since I haven't posted in over 2 months but I thought "Hey it might get me in the habit of blogging again!" So here goes nothing :)

Has it really been over 2 months?

I can't believe it has been over 2 months since my last post! We have had a fun-filled, busy few months with lots of birthday celebrations and exploring! Hopefully by mid-october things will calm down. Our kitchen is being re-done (so excited!!!!!!) and should be finished in about 2-3 weeks! Little man is growing like a weed as you can see above-- his 2 year old birthday is quickly approaching! Happy October!

Marine Duck Lovin'

We had a very busy weekend and little man seemed to nap more in the car than in his own bed on Saturday. Here he is snuggling with his baby doll and ducky. He actually fell asleep while chewing on his duck that is dressed up like a marine. Happy snoozing!

Are your shoes to small?

He loves these sandals and has asked to wear them two days in a row. He wore these on the cruise when he was 8 months old and yet he still wants to wear them even though his heels hang off. My favorite look was with socks! If the shoe fits, wear it.....? :)

Fun in the Car

I am so glad our little man like to spend time in the car (most of the time :) ) but he is just like his daddy. If we are in the car for longer than 20 minutes he is out cold unless he has toys or mommy to entertain him. (notice the laptop, book, and makeup case) Happy Traveling ~ wherever you may go!

Our Favorite Day is Monday because...

the garbage man comes! Our little guy hears the trash truck every Monday and no matter what he is doing will stop so that we can go wave to the garbage man, (rain or shine). Thank goodness it is mostly shining where we live. I showed him this picture when we came back inside and his smile was priceless. It really is the little things in life that bring Joy!

Three Most Important...

These are the three most important guys in my life (not pictured would be my dad who would come in a close 3rd with my furry firstborn :) )

They have arrived!

The picture is not the best quality but you can see the two little baby birds huddled together! So cute! They are so tiny! We were watching the mama bird feed them today out our kitchen window. Thanks to daddy who was brave enough to go snap a picture and hope he didn't get dive-bombed by the mama bird! :)

French Parenting? Chinese Parenting? Western Parenting?What are your thoughts?

There are quite a few books out right now on parenting in other cultures - french (bringing up bebe), chinese (battle hymn of the tiger mother) and of course there are thousands upon thousands of parenting in the western culture. If you type in parenting in an amazon search over 45,000 paperback books come up. How can you know what is best for your child in the long run? What are your thoughts?
