My Little Man




I had SO much fun today! The pictures above are of our walk this evening. Michelle and Ella came over to play today. Michelle and I scrapped and the babies, er, toddlers played. After they left it was still pretty nice so we ventured down the street. This is the first time Ari has really walked on his own, we usually push him in the stroller or the wagon. He was so distracted by the big kids playing football in the cul-de-sac, thus the pictures of him staring off in the distance. I really like them though, it shows his true personality... such the little observer! He was actually pretty cranky today, he still has a stuffed up nose and by boycotting his morning nap his whole day was thrown off. He went to bed at 6:20 tonight, I could NOT keep him up any longer. He was so tired, about every two steps he completely crashed to the floor and burst into tears. He finally walked to his crib, put out his arms and said, "UP"! I took that to mean he was done for the day and sure enough he went down without a peep!

Anyway, Michelle and Ella were here all day. We had SO much fun, I really needed a day like this. So much so that we decided to do it again tomorrow! She even left all her stuff here so we can pick up right where we left off. Ella was too cute today, she wanted to play with Ari SO bad, every time he wasn't in the play cage she cried until he came back. It was adorable! They had to leave so Ella could visit with her grandparents but we have mega scrap plans tomorrow. I did one and a half layouts today, pretty good considering how sssllloooowww of a scrapper I am. Here's the one I finished today:

And here's one that I did yesterday. It's hanging on our garage door (the one in the house, not the one the car uses), compared to the layout I did today I think it's pretty boring. I may have to spice it up a little tomorrow:

I'm working on another one right now, I ran out of letters so I need to make a pit stop at Hobby Lobby before I can be truly finished. It seems my mojo found it's way back, I'm soaking it all up! Not to shabby of a day, especially considering I stayed up until... uhh... 4 am! I got completely sucked into the book I'm reading, it's SOOO good. I'll post a full review when I'm finished (probably tomorrow)! I'm headed back to my scrap table, gotta take advantage of this scrap energy before it's gone! Night all ;)
