Quick Takes

  • This weekend, my grandmother from Michigan is coming to visit! I am so, so excited. We haven’t seen her since Grayson was 9 months old and obviously she has never met Charlotte. We are going to my parents’ ranch for a few days- another first for Charlotte. I am overwhelmed just thinking about the amount of STUFF we will have to pack into the ol’ minivan to survive 2 days in the country.
  • So remember a few posts back where I was all excited that we finally found the perfect house for us? Yeah, well, that plan got derailed last week when the appraisal came back way under our offer, making us unable to get the loan for that price. So we tried to re-negotiate with no success. So, we are back to house hunting. Waaaaa.
  • You might be a tube-feeding mama if you start to FREAK OUT when your husband tells you your son lost his button, but then realize he’s talking about an actual button on his shirt not the thing sticking out from a hole in his tummy.
  • Charlotte has discovered her hands. She gnaws on them whenever she gets the chance and it’s pretty much the cutest thing ever. And she can hold on to things! I know, big deal right? Well, Grayson couldn’t do this until much later than three months, and to be honest, still can’t hold on to things as long as Charlotte already can. So yes, it’s a big deal.
  • Another big deal: bending his legs (something that doesn’t happen very easily!).
  • Sorry, Anonymous Spam commenters, I’m done with you. Every day, I get more and more of your random, sometimes funny but mostly just annoying, comments on my blog. Today’s gem:
Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if
it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can
be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!


REALLY? And I don’t know if 83 views really qualifies you as a sensation. But what do I know? So no more anonymous comments- so sorry, real, legit, human beings who don’t have a google account.

I guess that’s it for tonight- Happy Tuesday Ya’ll!

    I like this post. It made me happy. And I like their clothes. Especially since Harrison has the same shirt as G. We need to take a picture of them together! ūüôā

    Oh my goodness, I'm also overwhelmed thinking of everything you will have to pack for a weekend at your grandmothers! You crack me up. I too have received the comment about the iPad drop – those crazy anonymous commenters… I find them hilarious! But yes, I should probably kill them off one day…

    Ok, I have plenty of comments here, first off, Miss C is adorable in her pink with an orange strip outfit. Whoo hoo that she is grabbing and holding on like a champ! G looks so grown up and tall all folded up like that, he is as cute as a button! And speaking of buttons, Can't.Stop.Laughing at your freak out and he meant just a regular shirt button. I can totally see the panic and confusion…Have so much fun at the ranch! Take lots of pictures of your Grandmother with your cuties! What a treat for her to meet C and see G again!

    Since making fun of my anonymous comments, I am getting a TON! I may have to go back to the captcha business to limit them. I do love that they are proud of 80 views on youtube. Haha!!!
