Charlie: Where is daddy?
Me: Daddy is at work right now, you can see him when he gets home.
Charlie: I really want to see him right now. I miss him soooo much.
Me: Well I am here and I am so happy to see you.
Charlie: Yeah, but I don't love you very much....
Ahh...way to make a mom feel good. Don't worry, I am not taking it personally :)
Here is a picture of the little rascal the other day after he got himself dressed
How do they walk around with their shoes on the wrong feet like they don't even notice?
That heart paper from Heidi Swapp has been one of my favorites since I first saw it with Heidi at CHA in February! I am getting more comfortable using non-traditional boy colors for Charlie's pages. This page turned out better than I expected and I think the pink looks great!
I think I used the chipboard accents from Chatterbox on every page and card that I made with this kit.
The kit comes with an entire bottle of white flocking from Doodlebug and double-sided sticker letters to apply the flock to. It is hard to see in this picture, but those letters are fuzzy from the white flocking. (Holly, great idea to use this on baby pages...I am going to have to steal that one!) More flocked sticker letters and the tree is one of the Chatterbox chipboard accents with green gems from Doodlebug. It is hard to see, but I hand-cut out the big "9" and then I added dots with glossy accents.
Be sure to check out the kit at http://www.freehandscraps.com/ on September 1st to see all the contents and the rest of the gallery.
I am so happy that they are starting to get Fall clothing in the stores now. I have not been too excited to buy anything for the little guy since it has all been summer stuff that he would not be able to wear in forever. (plus, I do have a TON of stuff leftover from Charlie) I found this CUTE outfit yesterday at Old Navy:
I just love the owl and the green. So cute!
After McDonald's we stopped at Walmart for a few groceries and I said to him "Wow, I am sure proud of my little preschooler". He thought about it for a while and said, "Can I still be a churcher too?" :)
We had a great time with my parents and I want to say thank-you to them for inviting us along. Love you both.
I did a scrapbooking layout about our nine years together for Freehand Scraps. I can only show a sneek peak because the gallery will not go up until the first, but here are a few fun facts that I gathered for it about our nine years together:
Eight - the number of automobiles we have owned
Fourteen - the number of employers we have had
Seven - the number of addressed we have had
One - the number of pets we have owned
Two - the number of boys that we have
It was fun to reflect on these numbers. I actually would have thought the number of addresses and automobiles would have been higher. It seems like we are always moving or getting a different vehicle! Anyway, Happy Anniversary to my funny, understanding and extremely loving husband. It has been a crazy nine years and I can't wait to see what lies ahead. I love you.
The ultrasound tech (her name is Vanja and she is Wonderful!!) mentioned again today that he was being a stubborn little guy. I was joking with Eric on our way home that it is a good thing...being a stubborn little fighter seems to be a requirement to be able to make it in this belly!
Me/Eric: Charlie, look at the camera
Charlie: I am!
Me/Eric: You are not looking at the camera, look at me!
Charlie: Cheese! Cheese! Cheese....See, I am looking at the camera!
Me/Eric: Ugh, just forget it.
At this point, bribing doesn't even seem to be working. Oh well, I think we all have this collection of pictures where we went through the cheesy grin phase, right?
Charlie LOVED this crane. He said "Whoa! He has hair just like me! He must go to Monkey Dooz to get his hair cut too!"
His impression of the long-horned sheep.
