14/52 Shadows

Playing in the front yard under a tree, while Nana planted some flowers. 
Love his little ear.  :-)
We may or may not have stayed in our PJs all day in Sunday.   haha

Favorites from last week:

Baseball is big in my family, so hopefully my son will love it like Sawyer does.  
Saxon might like riding in the cart as much as my son does!  
My baby loves his bath, too.

This post is inspired by Lindsey over at Ot & Et  
and Randalin at Harvesting Kale  for their weekly link up "Currently"... 
This week they asked what we've all been reading, feeling, racing, using, smelling  lately.  

Well, over here at my house we've been:

I know I mentioned this in my last "Currently" post but I'm still reading the Outlander series (again for the third time) in anticipation of the TV show and the next book coming out this year!  If you are also a fan, you can understand my excitement!  If not you might want to check it out!  (Outlander series, by Diana Gabaldon)
And with the boy we've been reading lots of board books!  Lately he seems especially drawn to Brown Bear, Brown Bear & Five Little Monkeys

Tired!   Baby boy has a couple new teeth trying to break through and has NOT been sleeping very well the past few nights.  I feel bad for him, poor little guy!  But I wish they would just pop through already so I can get some better sleep!  I've been feeling like a zombie at work this week.  Ugh...

Against my son as he crawls ALL.OVER.THE.PLACE!   He is so quick!   It's adorable to watch him cruise around but it is sure keeping us on our toes!   When one of us is in another room he comes charging down the hall looking for us and peeks his little head around the doorway to looks for us.  Makes me smile every time. 
There you are, Mama! 

My phone for practically anything nowadays. (Directions, FB, Wikipedia, weather, shopping.) I only turn on the desktop when I am working from home on Tuesdays. It's just a hassle!   (And don't get me started on the crappy laptop I have!)  BUT... my phone is constantly giving me an "out of storage space" message so I think I need to invest in a new one.  Not ready to make the iPhone leap yet, since I use a prepaid service and definitely don't want to deal with a contract.  Hmmm.

Smelling ... 
Rain!  It's been raining here overnight the past few days.  We need it, being in the middle of a pretty serious drought.  It's helping our newly planted veggies and flowers get a good start.  Since we pretty much skipped winter here in California, I suspect we might have a loooooong Spring!

That's what's been going on around here lately. 
Can't complain too much!
(Although more sleep would be appreciated - side eye BABY BOY!  haha)

13/52 Sunny Days

At the bay on a sunny day.... 
He was really unsure about crawling on the grass.   
He kept touching it and pulling his hand back, but finally got brave enough to crawl toward the playground.

Some of my favorites from last week:
Love this kiddo peaking over the rock! And hi sister's little dress is adorable, too.
My son LOVES hanging out with his Daddy,just like Connor.
Since I posted a swinging pic last week, I was drawn to this little lady on a swing.

12/52 Swinging & Smiling

Swinging at the park on his 10 month birthday!!
He wasn't 100% sure about the swing until I started smiling and clapping and then he seemed to like it.  He was giggling and smiling and waving his little hands and feet around.  :-)

Some of my favorites from last week:
1) Oh this is a familiar sight! Poor little Sawyer. 
When it happened here, we tried not to laugh but sometimes it wasn't possible to hold it in.   
2) I know I will soon miss the days when I get to hold a sleeping babe, like Jacob's mama says of this pic
3) Oh Mr. Roman...again.  He's just too cute, so like my son, and his mama is so good at photographing him! Love the light and the over the shoulder look.  :-)
