Misc. & Bloglovin

FOR REAL.

At the pool a few weekends ago. We didn't put a swim diaper on him and his regular diaper expanded like those spongy dinosaur tablets you grow in a jar of water. It was hilarious watching him try to walk around with a huge wad between his legs.

Garrison's little sister is here and we're really excited. Henry doesn't get to see family very often so it's like a huge deal when someone comes and visits us.

FYI, I just noticed my blog was floating around Bloglovin unclaimed. I just grabbed it, here's the link in case you want to follow along!

* I just tried to make it all fancy with a photo-link but I still haven't figured this new computer out. Sorry for the boring!

Yoga with Henry

gwenbirthday 173

Hey guys, Henry here. So, you've decided to see what all the fuss is about and give Yoga a try. My moves are therapeutic and designed to systematically address every part of your body and soul. All you need is a quiet room, a mat, and a bottle of apple juice for rehydration. I'll start with some simple poses and progress to more advance positions.

Don't worry if you find these moves challenging at first. If you take my class, I'll be there to provide personal attention and posture instruction. Please remember to leave your cell phone, keys, and shoes outside the door. All you need is your mat, your juice, and YOU.

Charging

gwenbirthday 228

We're entering toddlerhood head on and fast as a bullet. It's challenging/It's fun. I can't really explain it with words but this picture does a pretty good job & lucky for us we'll never have to buy another toy as long as these cabinets are unlocked and these spices remain.


This picture is totally unrelated but I'm feeling incredibly nostalgic for the old days this week. Actually, I guess in a small way it is related because the older Henry gets the further from the past I feel. I miss my friends. I miss that room. I miss the Bellingham rain. If any old friends even read this, just know that I'm probably thinking about you a ridiculous amount these days. I hope with everything inside me that you are all happy and well. Drink a beer at the Horseshoe for me, okay? Thanks.

Our Weekend and Home Improvement (sry, no tim allen)

gwenbirthday 238

Henry took a business call at breakfast this morning. I think it was real important he told Elmo that he ate a whole slice of french toast and half of a biscuit in under half an hour. Henry has semi-molars now so chewing is NBD and he takes full advantage of it. We ate breakfast at this new 50's diner we've been eying for about a month.

After breakfast we took Henry to PetSmart and let him look at all of the fish, dogs, hamsters, and gerbils. It was like a free zoo you guys. I only took a few pictures because apparently you aren't allowed to do that there.

This is a necklace my aunt gave me for my birthday. I love it so much, it's silly but I seriously sit there and stare at it for an awkward amount of time. It was made by one of the art students here, which makes it even more special. This is one of my favorite new dresses:

We stopped by our old house to pick up a bin we accidentally left behind. I tried peeking in some of the windows but the blinds were all closed. I was able to reach my camera up to the living room window and snap this picture. When I loaded it onto my computer I got all sad about the move again. That blue? That was Henry's room. That burn mark on the floor in the living room? He read books on that. Played on it. Learned to crawl and then walk right over it as the months passed us by. That house was good to us. Going back I felt like we didn't belong there anymore....locked out and forced to move on just. like. that. I sat on the porch for a few minutes and tried to soak in every sweet memory I could.

BUT our new house is coming together which makes today's experience a little easier to swallow. These pictures are all from our new place:

Sesame Street Live!

gwenbirthday 229
golden ticket

We took Henry to Sesame Street Live and had a lot of fun together. Henry is a certified Elmo lovah and he was into it the entire time. Watching him try and figure it all out was an incredibly special mom-moment for me. Also? We got to see Sesame Street Live. Being a parent rules.

New House or Moving Really Sucks.

gwenbirthday 193

Henry likes his new house. He has a lot more room to run around and a lot more things to explore and get into (dishwasher! stove knobs!) I'm not going to lie though, this move has been hard on all of us. Garrison and I are both so freaking stubborn that we're bickering over how things should be done, where things should go, etc. UGH and the only time Henry isn't getting into something is when he's sleeping.

I can't wait until everything is in its place and we can sit on the couch and truly enjoy this new opportunity for our little family. Because even if can't see eye to eye on where to put the couch, we both agree that this place is pretty perfect.
