Reading Together

Reading If You Take a Mouse to School...

and Where the Sidewalk Ends.

Little Cutie

My little baby is 8 months old already. He has started going up on his hands and knees in the past couple of days, so crawling must be around the corner. Eek! Today I started the process of deswaddling - one arm out during nap time. Turns out Bonesteele loves being swaddled as much as Miss E did. I think she was 8 or 9 months before she slept without swaddling.

Bonesteele continues to be my little snuggler, lover, cuddler. And just like a boy, he is really into nursing. Ha ha He gives kisses liberally, and will smile at anyone. He lets anyone hold him.

Bonesteele is a big vegetable fan, which makes me happy. (Miss E was and continues to be a fruitaholic.) His favorites are peas and butternut squash. He also enjoys graham crackers, which are the only solid food I have been able to get him to eat.

Baby, It's Cold Outside

We've got tons of snow here, which is extremely unusual for western Oregon. We're loving it! This weather makes Mr N and me want to move somewhere that gets more snow. We are really over the rain.

Miss E has been having a ball playing outdoors. Yesterday Mr N put the kids in a toboggan and dragged them around. Miss E laughed delightedly the entire time. The funniest part was that Bonesteele had no expression whatsoever on his face the entire time.

All Bundled Up

MaNiC MoNdAy - Two-fer...on a Wednesday!

I'm behind on my manic Monday posts...but both pictures turned out to be weird (see below), so I'm posting a couple of the kids in addition.

This might be my favorite picture of Miss E and Bonesteele EVER.

The name edition...
First folder is the number of letters in your first name.....7
Sub-folder is the number of letters in your middle name....5
Posted pictures if the number of letters in your last name....6
The seventh folder would be my eBay folder, so you get a lovely picture of maternity jeans!
Nor did the Thanksgiving edition turn out so hot.

The first folder to select will be #17. This is how many letters there are in "Happy Thanksgiving."
The sub folder selection will be the total letters in the STATE where you celebrated thanksgiving....we were in Oregon, so my subfolder is 6.
My 17th folder happens to be my sample pictures...where I stick all the random clipart and pictures I download off the web.

So, yeah. Hopefully Monday's edition gives me a little better fodder. :D
