Singing in the Rain

Posted on September 17, 2012. Filed under: E, life & times, pictures |

E loves to walk around in the rain while carrying an umbrella.

He also sings “Its Raining, It’s Pouring”

J obliges and walks around with him until they are both soaked

I try to quickly grab my camera and capture a few of these sweet moments.

Birthday Celebration

Posted on September 16, 2012. Filed under: birthday, E |

On E’s actual birthday we did did a warm up celebration with a cupcake.



The following weekend we celebrated with a Pirate themed party on our back deck.



Some of E’s ship mates.


J and I made the cake, I must admit I’m proud of how it turned out.




Cake, presents, friends, family, hugs & lots of squash-buckling

made it a perfect celebration for our little matey.

2 Years Old

Posted on September 14, 2012. Filed under: birthday, E, pictures |


I like how this photo session unfolded.

E started out completely disinterested in taking a picture,

and then he started taking his shoes and socks off and throwing them at me

suddenly he was all smiles and hamming it up.

It is fitting that I captured him taking his shoes off because this is a very common occurrence.

He takes his shoes off on he drive home from school and often throws his socks at me.

I call him my little hippie.





Some words to capture E right now. 

Favorite Color:  Orange

Favorite Number: 2 quickly follow by 5, 3 and 4 don’t exist

Favorite TV Show:  Mr. Rogers, we know it unusual, but he asks for it by name

Favorite Activity:  “Wixing” (Fixing) stuff and helping, especially helping daddy mow the lawn

Favorite Food:  E will eat anything but I think his favorite food is still Milk

He also seems to have gotten his O’s sweet tooth and his J’s pension for sauces and dips

Interests:  trucks, tractors & animals

This little guy has such a sweet, easy & funny personality it is hard not to be smitten with him.

23 Months

Posted on July 12, 2012. Filed under: birthday, E |

   I just remembered why I try to blog at the same time stuff is happening…because otherwise I can’t recall anything.  This picture is from 2 months ago.  I took it on time, but obviously didn’t post it on time. 

Around that time E had his “word explosion”, suddenly he was saying everything.  This is also when he discovered his baby doll.  After 23 months of taking pictures with my Cabbage Patch doll he claimed it as his own and started calling it “My Baby”.  It is now in his crib along with his whale, gorilla and 7 blankets.  I remember when there wasn’t 1 item in the bed, I was too afraid of the suffocation risks, now he sleeps in a pallet of stuffed animals and blankets.IMG_0186  Here are E and My Baby watching their morning shows.

Happy Easter

The pictures will have to speak for themselves.  I don’t have any words.






Still a baby…he can still reach his foot to his mouth.


This picture is from after the Spring Bonnet Parade at school…too cute.IMG_0176

Month 22

Posted on May 3, 2012. Filed under: birthday, E, pictures |

This is a “smiling photo”.

Maybe we need a faster camera.

Message to O’s Dad, notice the tee-shirt E is wearing.

We saved it for a special occasion.

If you are wondering what the shirt says, it spells our “Heisenberg” using the periodic table.

You need to watch Breaking Bad (the best show on Television) to understand.



E is already preparing for his future and practicing spreading shaving cream over his entire face.


This is from haircut number 5, E is officially a pro at getting his haircut.

March Misc.

Posted on May 2, 2012. Filed under: E, family, life & times |

I like this one because he looks like such a big boy sitting and writing at the table.


I think E was attempting to smile in this photo.


Quiet contemplation on the deck.

I think he is studying an inchworm or some other bug.

Grandma in town for my birthday.

These were taken just before we took her to the airport.

E cried when we dropped her off.

It was heartbreaking.

This is a picture of pure joy and happiness.

I’m not sure what the story is behind this picture. 

It was too long ago for me to remember. 

My guess is he had a blow-out at school because I wouldn’t normally pair that shirt and pants together.

That blow dryer really seems to be making him happy.

Proof that kids don’t need toys.

19 Months

Posted on February 13, 2012. Filed under: birthday, E |

FYI….I just found this Blog in my Live Writer.  I guess I wrote it a few weeks ago, but never posted it….


 IMG_3708 IMG_3709 


E is almost 20 months old, so I better get his 19 month picture and update out before it is too late.  It is the story of my life lately, everything is late.  I find I’m spending more time working at night after E goes to sleep, so I haven’t been blogging nearly enough at all.  No worries, I’m not aware of any remaining regular readers, so I don’t have to worry about people hanging on my every word, or lack there of.


Per usual E is awesome.  He adds more words everyday.  He is the biggest little helper.  He loves to clean so much, he will make a mess just for the chance to clean it up.  When we were home for MLK day, we spent half the day vacuuming because that is what he wanted to do.  He also loves anything in the kitchen.  It is a tough task, it requires two sets of watching eyes and quick hands to get anything accomplished in the kitchen while E “helps” us.


After a  couple weeks of struggling to get E to bed, he is back to basically putting himself to bed without a peep it is amazing.


E moved to a new “big kid” class at school, which he absolutely loves.  There is a dramatic play area with a kitchen and lot of fun big kid toys.  The transition from his Infant to Early Toddler class was hard, he cried everyday for 2 weeks, but he barely batted an eye when we moved him from the Early Toddler to Toddler class.

17 & 18 months….

Posted on December 13, 2011. Filed under: birthday, E |

Things have been pretty crazy lately…so I’m super behind on my documenting what goes on in our lives.  Which means today I have E’s 17 and 18 month photos to share.  Really soak up the 17 month photos because as you will see, he refused to take an 18 month photo.  Daddy was nice enough to pose for a photo instead.


As for his stats he weighs 24 lbs and is 32 1/2 inches tall.


He has so many words right now, it is hard to list them all.  Mama, Dada, hat, Pop, hot, car, sit, more, milk, please, thank you, water, up, help, open, banana, cracker, happy, two, ball, outside, walk, dog….there are many more, these are just the ones I can think of right now.


He loves to attempt to sing songs, his favorites are Ring Around the Rosie, Happy Birthday and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.  He also loves it when we do the little pigs on his toes and when we take flashlights and look in every nook and cranny for missing objects like the remote control.
