Rain makes for a long day. Especially when Chase stands at the door saying dat dat dat and banging on the glass because she wants to go outside. The library was great but the rest of the day was peppered with missed connections that left us scrambling to pass the time. Actually, those two factors compounded by a missed afternoon nap and my inability to decide whether to go on an outing or not left us scrambling to pass the time. Either way, everything post 1pm left something to be desired.
I’m trying to finish up a project and it’s not coming together as quickly as I would like. So to make myself feel better. I’m going to post up some pics of a gift I made for Sarah a few months back. It’s just simple sachets but it was the first time that I tried my hand at ribbon embroidery. Read the rest of this entry »
It was on at least twice this weekend because we watched parts of it both time we caught it. My very favorite movie! Comic genius I telly you. I don’t want to give it away though. I want to see if you can guess based on the track I pulled from the ‘musical score.’ *A hint, this songstress was recently a contestant on Dancing with the Stars. Another bit of trivia that might help is that the first copy I owned was a promotional copy that was part of a McDonald’s special offer that you might remember.
I guess the fascination all started with the sandwich-board sign propped up on someone’s lawn reading ‘beatbox lessons $1′. It appears to be another endearing eccentricity of our fair city. This isn’t her typical dancing, the dancing I’ve been trying to catch on video for a week. This is totally new to us, see if you dig her new moves. I think maybe that other dancing is for Christmas music and other adult alternative easy listening garbage. This dancing, this my friends, is evidently uniquely reserved for daddy’s beatboxing.
Oh, man and does it ever feel good! On top of that, tell me you don’t find this a string of events a little odd. When I got home, Ben had taken Chase to visit a friend so I had the house all to myself, the new issue of Living was in the mailbox and Martha Stewart Crafts was just starting. On top of that, the Golden Girls came on right after that and it was the ‘gawd, I wish I was dead’ episode with Dr. Jonathan Newman. I put on my soybu pyjamas and said aaaaahhh.

I know it takes time for uploads to process on You Tube but I have to post when I can post or I’ll forget to get it up here. She was laughing so hard that her eyes were tearing. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree I guess. We officially retired the high chair in favor of a low profile booster. I found it on craig’s list. It came with a porch swing and a second booster seat.. I don’t know, for travel I suppose for 10 bucks. Now I just have to get daddy to hang the swing outside and we’re in business if we get another nice warm day like today. I don’t know where the best place to hang it is. I see most people’s swings on the front porch but I suppose we could put in on one of the back porches too. I’ll have to think about it. Read the rest of this entry »
It seems we’re skipping fall in favor of jumping right into winter. We’ve had baby Chase in footed pj’s for the last couple of nights because it’s been just that chilly. She doesn’t mind though when she’s all cozied up in the nice gift she got from her friend B.
Things with Chase are all crazy here. She’s moving at lightning speed. It’s like all the developments have her head spinning and her body is literally spinning too. She likes to sit on the floor with a fun toy and use her heels to turn herself around and around. It’s quite amusing to watch. At some point today I observed her do the crawling baby equivalent of running while screeching and giggling maniacally. At some later point I observed her devise a plan for standing that involved executing a downward facing dog type of a move. The fun never ends. Last night she barely slept a wink for Read the rest of this entry »
