Watering the outside garden.
Watering the inside garden.
I love these rolls.
He loves recycling.
And reading. (And pointing!!!!!!!)
He loves his green blanket.
And the Magic School Bus. On the Ocean Floor.
In the car: “Mommy? I took three short naps. I did. I took three short naps. So I don’t need anymore naps today.”
At the library’s Spring Book Sale.
Fifty-one books for $15.50.
We were in heaven!!
Inside the library…
… and more Magic School Bus!! Inside a Hurricane.
At the self-checkout!
“Ooooh!! Wook, Mommy! It’s the Time of Dinosaurs!!”
“Wet’s see what it says!…”
Getting around to the scanning part. :)
And then, in the parking lot…
… “Aww aboard!!! You can you go!! You can go, car!! Aww aboard!!”
“Hey,” one man said into his cell phone on his third time around the parking lot looking for a spot, “Listen to this kid!!” Then he held his phone out the window as he inched by the Bubbers King. We were all laughing. :):)
… “Aww aboard!! You can go, car!! You can go!! Aww aboard!!”
I love his bare feet.
And his new penchant for puckering.
And his toothy grin. :):)
And. His new penchant for puckering.
And his pause. From puckering.
The Magic School Bus!!
Inside the Human Body!!! (That’s so siwwy!!)
Back at home… Delivery!!
Riding with neighbor Joshua. :):)
The remnants of Joshua’s kind gift.
(According to Bubbers, “I woved the popsicow!… Except for the cowd parts.”)
Time for the naptime routine!
One of my favorite views ever.
Holy pancakes! My baby is ginormous.
And while all is quiet…
I’m physically fed.
And spiritually fed. :)
Breaking open our delivery! My latest purchase from one of my favorite stores.
More sprouting trays!! And some first aid items for our 72-hour kits.
Admiring the newest 51 additions to our home library. :)
My most expensive purchases– a whole dollar for each hardback. I splurged! :)
I’m reading them for the first time and Charming assures me they’re keepers.
A pile for Scooters.
A nonfiction pile for Bubbers.
And a fiction pile for Bubbers.
For when they’re older.
And, of course, my dream books. For those four girls we’ll have after our four boys. :)
Preparing to clean our newest additions.
But! They’re awake!
Scooters’ new favorite spot in his bedroom…
… His book basket! :):)
He’s a turning-pages-and-pointing machine!!!
And he’s making his own “book circles” now!! :):)
It warms my little heart.
Let’s strip for baths! But first…
… Some tickles!
… And kisses!
… And giggles!!
Holy smokes alive.
There’s not much in this world…
… I love better than this.
More of my favorite views…
And he’s off!!
Ever seen a towel crawl to books?
Or a boy back up into a basket?
Daddy’s home from school!!!
Yay!! Welcome home, Daddy!!
And they’re off to the park! To give me a break. :)
After dinner and Scooters goes to bed…
… Daddy lets me relax while he does the dishes and puts the house back together. :):)
Then it’s Bubbers’ bedtime!
What a day! I guess it’s over now…
… Until Charming picks up the surprise baby-sitter and takes me for a beautiful walk down to the grocery store!
Smoothies and chatting with my best friend.
What a great idea for an early Mother’s Day gift! Thanks, Love. :)
It was all grass this morning, but by the evening…
It was our new strawberry patch!
And Bubbers’ new play plot! He loves to dig in the garden so much that we’re giving him a spot all his own! He began by starting a rock collection. :)
Not pictured: Weeding the vegetable garden, trip to Lowe’s for lots of fun stuff, laminating projects and posters, mowing, weed-eating, reorganizing the shed, fixing a sink and installing new plates on the car. Thanks for all your hard work, Love!
Trains with Daddy (and Mommy)! Bubbers specifically instructed Daddy to lay with one cheek on the floor and the other cheek inflated.
Crawling and loving it!
Not pictured: Going down his first slides with Mommy and loving it!! Learning how to bang rocks at the park. :)
Resting in a “storm” after his shower. :)
Not pictured: Helping Daddy dig the strawberry patch, lots of playing outside with Thomas and his tricycle, digging at the park, watching a little of I Love Big Trains, and reading Nursery Songs & Rhymes with Mommy! :)
