7 month photos (9 days late)

These were actually taken on her 7 month day - I'm just lazy with posting them...

Chaos is no friend of mine

I can't deal with chaos, it makes me very uneasy. It also makes me very unproductive. I'm known to have folders neatly stacked on my desk at perfect right angles to each other - each with tasks to do. I have plans neatly piled in various corners of my office - each of a different job and in varying states of completness. Visual clutter drives me NUTS.

Here's my office yesterday and today (and probably for tomorrow too).



Our office is getting a new (additional) A/C unit, and lucky me; it's going in the closet in my office.

I need a valium.

Tales of Carnage

Well... hell has frozen over, or somewhere a pig has sprouted wings.


I've ridden a mountain bike,


through the mud,


got a boo-boo,


...AND LIKED IT.


Thankfully my husband is above telling me "I told you so". He even bought me a pretty bike. I'm thinking about naming it Irmingard. She's yellow and orange, and at this moment missing a seat, which makes it hard to ride her. But rest assured, as soon as my pretty new steed gets a seat, I'll have photos.


Here's my first mountainbike related boo-boo. Sexy, aint' it? It was nothing really cool or anything... my foot slipped off the pedal when I was going through a muddy section and the clip caught me on my shin.

Sitting here Pumping

Oh my gosh, she slept through the night.


Oh my gosh, my boobies hurt.


Oh my gosh, I'm going back to bed.


Sleep well and long little one!!!

Jodi's School of Dance




My sister had a dance school when I was a child. I've had this shirt for YEARS and always held on to it. When we moved last week, I found it and threw it in the wash. Last night I put it on Nati and took some photos. I can't wait to send them to my sister! Maybe this weekend I'll dig up a photo of me wearing this shirt!

New Trick

video

Nati's up to some new tricks these days. She's pulling herself up to standing and even walking a bit while holding on to the couch. This is the best angle I could get the video from because she tends to gravitate to me when I have the video camera or my digital camera in my hands. I'm telling myself it's me she's after and that she's totally a mama's girl. But I know better... she's after the technology.

Aah well.

Art Project



I found this online and LOVE this art project for kids! We plan on doing this for every member of our family and put them all on one wall in our new home. I can't wait to see the results!

Love 'em or Hate 'em?

I have a Love/Hate relationship with finding new blogs.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE reading new blogs, finding new people, seeing new photos, reading new recipies. It's all so exciting and it's fun to look forward to new posts.

I HATE HATE HATE having to read through YEARS of back posts so I can be intimately familiar with the blogger before starting to read their daily posts. Let me re-phrase that. I LOVE reading through years of back posts, but the time goes so quickly and my eyes want to bleed after. It's like eating a whole pint of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, but oh, do you have a stomach ache after indulging in THAT MUCH goodness.

Am I making sense here???

Hello.... anyone... Bueller? Bueller?

That being said - I found a new blogger that I just love Sparklinbecks. She's witty and daggum, her kids are cute!
