Our evening in pictures

We came home and got a bath.

No papparazzi!!

Would you care for some octopus mom?

Gimme that camera.

So pretty.

Squeaky clean!

Playing with her new toy.

She didn't stay standing for long.

She preferred this way.

Ms. Destructo

Why play with the top? The bottom is so much more fun.

Wish list

In an effort to teach Aves Spanish I have been looking at a lot of Spanish education toys and videos. I love these:

This phone is from Educational Toys planet (www.educationaltoysplantet.com) and also has a cute little clock toy too.

I love these maracas that count in English and Spanish:

They are from Leap Frog which has a lot of other great learning toys.

I found these videos on Amazon that I would really love to get for her.

I knew I should have paid attention those 4 years in Spanish. Maybe I will learn the same time she does with the help of these toys/videos. If only momma could afford this:

Anyone have some superglue?

Because at least then I would have my arms free. I think I have held Avery for 3 days. I know, I know, use the Moby. Yep. In theory that works. However it was hotter than HADES here today. I'm talking walk out the door and get smacked in the face hot. My poor a/c unit has been running night and day trying to keep up. I've sweat in places....well, you get the idea.

I don't know what's going on with her. Maybe it's teething? It's so stinking cute when I pick her up and she wraps her arm around my neck that it's hard to be mad at her. Oh my sweet baby Jesus are my arms tired. She has even had to be held to go to sleep. Meh.

I made lots of baby food today while she was taking a nap. I worked frantically in case she woke up. I choose to use the oven for 3 hours on the hottest day of the year. No wonder my a/c is going to kill me in my sleep. I made squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, avacado, and bananas. Tomorrow is strawberries, pears, and peaches. I bought a jar of applesauce, too much work.

With that I bid you adieu. I need a shower...badly.

We're on the injured reserve list...the both of us.

Ave somehow cut her finger in the bathtub tonight. I didn't even realize she did it until I was drying her off. I'm all what's that on her face? Meh, and proceed to dry her off. Took me awhile to realize it was blood because it was so watered down with drool because my child is a leaky faucet. I'm proud of myself, I stayed calm. I always wondered what I would do the first time my baby got hurt. I thought I would be all HOLD THE PHONE!! CALL 911 THIS IS AN EMERGENCY!! Instead I kept my cool and Grandma was the freak out. Now I think the challenge is going to be keeping the thumb out of her mouth until we can take the band-aid off. Bring on the duct tape!

I hurt my shoulder yesterday playing with Avery. I think I just pulled some muscles lifting baby buddah in the air. It seriously EFFING hurts! I'm talking good thing I still have some of the good drugs from squeezing the spawn out hurts. I think I need some muscle relaxers, but do you think I'll go to the doctor? PSSSSHHHH. It's true, nurses make the worst patients. Instead I'll just b!tch and moan about it until it feels better. Yep, b!tch and moan so if I talk to you regularly in real life, prepare yourself. And don't roll your eyes at me. I know you're thinking it "what a baby". It's my SHOULDER! I lift fat old people all day at work and come home and lift baby buddah who is built like a brick sh!thouse all night. It may take awhile. :)

Best birthday present eva!!!!

Ave woke up from her nap and I left her in there a couple minutes while I was doing something else. She was babbling away to herself. Then I heard the best thing ever: "Mama mama mama". I run in and she is on her back with her arms stretched up for me. After eleventy billion kisses we got ready to head to Grandma and Grandpa's house.

At Grandma and Grandpa's house she was be-bopping around in her walker. (She was supervised and safe so STFU.) She wheeled herself up to me and put her arms up to be picked up and DID IT AGAIN! "Mama mama mama". SQUEEEEE! She said mama and was talking to ME!! She's done it a handful of other times today.

I think I'm going to explode from excitement!

Monkey had a bad dream : (

I woke up this morning at 5:30 to Aves screaming bloody murder in her room. I rush into her and scoop her up. She put her arms around my neck and squeezed me sooo tight. I rocked her for awhile and she kept wimpering. I put her in bed with me and she fell asleep finally with a death grip on my shirt.

Poor baby : (
