Just a quick post since I've been away for too long. I'm still here, just very busy and haven't quite figured out how to make more time in my day for blogging! I'm keeping the hope alive that I'll figure it out at some point though...

In the time I've been gone, zazzle has yet again added a bunch of new products! Things like dart boards, yard signs, playing cards, and so many other things. I will never catch up with that! So here are some great examples from other amazing artists!

(Can you tell I am very ready for the arrival of Fall?!)

And just because I can't help it, here's a recent picture of Leo, whose birthday is coming up way too quickly.  
Can't believe he's gotten so big and is now walking! Where'd my little baby go?! :) :)

Operation Write Home

Today I sent off a package of 85 homemade cards to Operation Write Home, an organization that sends our troops special, handmade cards for them to send home to their families.  If you enjoy paper-crafting or card-making and have more cards than you can possibly send, or just want to do something nice, check out their website for all the details!

My Favorite Photo From March

   I take pictures of Leo almost every day. My computer is in desperate need of external storage!  But I rarely get any photos after bath time because we are doing the whole bedtime routine.  
    On this day, thanks to a baby who is all about exploring his food, we were early with bath, and I was able to capture the sleepy-eyed, just-washed-hair, ready-for-bed look.  It's  not the best photo from March, but it is my favorite!

Just because I can't resist, here are some runners up:

I love a good baby costume! 

Leo's first swing ride.
Feeding himself and proud of it.
Pure silliness.

If you have kids and a camera and a blog, Paper Mama's Photo Challenge may be just the thing for you!

What Makes You Laugh: Part II

After posting Leo laughing pics, I recieved a comment about getting a video of the laughs.  I'm here to tell you, if you're at all interested, that we have captured a few.  None of them do it justice though - as soon as my son realizes the video camera is out, that is way more interesting than whatever it was that was making him laugh in the first place.

My husband has made Leo his own youtube just for videos of him (Yes, we're those parents.), and it's here if you're in need of some giggles and just general everyday baby cuteness.
