Yup, that's my baby on the floor. It took me a while to figure out this trick with Liam, 'cause I was pretty much a zombified, terrified new mom.
But when I'm in a big hurry to get to something with both hands, (or just to get to the bathroom, LOL!), I sometimes put Rhys on the floor. The way I figure it, she's safe there - you can't fall off of, or out of, the floor.
I know that Liam hears everything I say, and takes in more than I realize. But sometimes it's made abundantly clear.
I often tell Liam to stop doing *insert gross boy trick of the day* because "It's Gross". (OK, child of the 80's. At least I don't say "Stop that, it's like, so gross. Like, gag me with a spoon.")
Today I was getting ready to nurse Rhys, and I just flung my nursing pad on the coffee table. I didn't realize that Liam had a bunch of his hot wheels there, until he exclaimed at me: "Oh Non, Mommy! Pas sur mon auto jaune - Dat's Gross!"
I love the catch lights in her eyes here. She was so interested in the little toutou's hanging above her bouncy chair. Of course, the expression that I was really trying to capture was in the following picture.
I just couldn't catch her like this without a lot of movement. I couldn't get a shot that wasn't blurred. But I so love the expression on her face!
We've started weekly challenges over at The Paper Element. You don’t need to use The Paper Element products on your challenges (although we’d love that!). Check out all the details on the blog - we would love to see your creations, and you just might win a prize!
OK, you've already seen reference to the diaper changer; here's reference to the milk factory... :P
You wouldn't think there is much difference across the brands for these things, but I have developed a real preference for this particular brand. Oh, and the wrappers are fully recyclable plastic, unlike the cellophane that some brands use.
I made it through to the 5th and Final round in the tournament over at Scrapbook Dreamer. I'm really happy with the Round 4 layout that I did. It was my first time working with an acrylic background, and it was a lot of fun to try. I had to plan a lot more carefully than I normally do with a layout, because I wasn't sure if I could remove adhesive once something was glued down, and I was stamping on this layout (which I rarely do). Here it is, if you would like to check it out!
I had so much fun with this LO, that now I'm itching to try an acrylic mini-album. Hmmm - might be a good Christmas gift idea.
Well, I made it through to Round 4 in the tournament over at Scrapbook Dreamer! I think it made it through only by the skin of my teeth, though. I really like the layout I did for Round 3, and I wouldn't change it. But I don't think it's really a tournament quality layout, if you know what I mean? Sometimes with a layout (as with many things in life) you have to stop while you're ahead - anything else added would have been too much, I think.
