Kind of fun to try

I saw this on another website and was curious to try it out- I always wondered how fast I typed- Pretty average I guess- I wish they had ten key tests now that I could do- After 4 years at a bank I could ten key in my sleep!

Napping Strike

I thought that babies took naps, I also thought that if you were 8 months old you were still considered a baby. However I failed to take into account that Porter might not believe such things. I am not sure what he thinks he is going to miss. . . . but he is NOT interested in naps.

If I pull the blinds and hold him in the recliner he'll sleep, ah make that doze, but the second I get up to put him in his crib those little eyes pop open! "Hey what am I missing mom?"

Yesterday I reverted to laying next to him on my bed until he fell asleep, but then of course I did to. . . . . . So much for the stuff on my to do list.

A growing personality

It is so fun to watch Porter's personality grow and develop. He is turning into quite the little ham. Yesterday evening we made a trip to Home Depot to get some blinds and Porter was fascinated with everything. Then on the way out he kept making faces at the clerk- who of course told him how cute he was- the more attention she gave him the more he grinned. We of course think he's the cutest baby ever- But with a smile like this who wouldn't think that?

P.S. It never ceases to amaze me how much uh, stuff.... can come out of a little person.
Some days it seems like my washing machine never stops running.

Almost 1000 miles in just over 48 hours

We took a quick trip this weekend to see family, I thought we were awfully brave considering a long car ride for Porter is usually less than half an hour. Porter was a champ however, and was really only fussy for 30 minutes total or so. We had a lot of fun visiting in the short time we were there- Next time we definatly need to plan for a couple of extra days! Here's a few fun pics of our trip.

Only in Nevada

  • Only in Nevada are there ashtrays in the actual bathroom stall.
  • Only in Nevada is the local thrift shop called "The poke and peek" I'm not joking!
  • Only in Nevada do you open the 101 things to do with your family guide and find a full page ad for a brothel.
  • Only in Nevada do you see this sign right next to the city exit sign. Believe it or not this sign was relatively mild compared to a couple of others we saw.
