I Got You, You Got Me

It would seem that we have a budding rock star in the family. Check out my 5 year old niece, Kaiomhe. Singing and playing her own composition. Awesome. I think my favorite part is the very extended ending, with a few extra strums thrown in for good measure. Now that's talent!

Monster Beetle Baby


Maybe it's a cop-out, but sometimes I love using large photos on a LO! It definitely makes a statement, and it can help keep embellishments simple.

Summertime Fun





Hence, the lack of blog posting. We are too busy trying to enjoy the nice weather amidst continuing to keep on top of our everyday existence.

Fun things about Otto right now (at 14 months):

>he can't just walk anywhere, he needs to run.
>he spends a lot of time in the front entryway, circling around his shoes, laying them in different positions in order to try to get them on his feet. then he gets out Mama's shoes and tries to get those on too.
>he still has a great love for books and will sit for great lengths of time flipping through books by himself, or being read to
>he started associating a picture of a lion in one of his books with growling. So now we ask him what a lion says and he does this cute little growl in his throat. Sometimes I hear him in the living room, growling away and I know that he's got that book out.
>when asked where his noes is, he exhales loudly out of his nose. pretty cute.
>will do the actions to "Rain is falling down" song we sing.... if you're lucky. Only a few people have actually witnessed this. Apparently he does not perform for an audience.
>loves to help Mama, especially if it is getting produce from the garden.
>absolutely LOVES the spray park. This kid has no fear going head-first into the biggest sprays. Won't stop for anything (I practically have to tie him down to stop for a snack/bottle!)

I hope you are all having a fun summer, even if it means that you are away from your computer for long bouts of time! Enjoy what is out there!
