TWINKLE TOES

check out the dance moves this guy's got. oh, and also notice the drool patterns that this choreography creates on his little mat. the rhythmic sound effects are his hiccups laid on top of some jazzy music. it seems that the johnny jump can actually encourage a very cultured kind of play.

NIGHTTIME BATH TIME

THE JOHNNY JUMP UP'S STILL GOING STRONG

especially since todd did away with the factory springs and retrofitted it with some super duper boing-y ones! don't worry, huck's got a crash mat for safety.

PILLOWS

for way too long these fabrics have been sitting in my sewing bin next to some uncovered down pillows that we bought over a year ago. well today i finally did the math, cut the fabric, stitched the edges, and ironed the creases and -- voila! -- we have some fluffy new pillows for our couch. and to think, all it took was a glass of sangria and some afternoon sunshine to finish them. sheesh.


p.s. don't you just love a baby's foot dangling alongside a daddy's tools?

MOTHER'S DAY NO.1

this morning, todd, tj, huckleberry, and i walked with the dogs to our new neighborhood farmers market and had a little picnic of freshly pressed apple cider, hand baked pastries, and breakfast burritos. i'd say it was a pretty great way to spend a first mother's day morning.
