I’ve been playing around with my friend’s camera, trying to get a feel for it the past couple of days. It helps to have an adorable subject to photograph (yes, I’m biased), but doesn’t help that she won’t sit still for more than a second at at time. ;) Anyway, here are a few pics I’ve taken of my lil sweetie. Sitting with our pumpkins (pumpas). Time for a bath! Playing with leaves. Fun with sticks. Waving to a duck in the pond. Also, I finally scored a toy shopping cart today. (I’ve been trying to track down a used one for a while now.)Read More →

Tomorrow is our second Cherished Children API (Attachment Parenting International) meeting. I’m especially looking forward to it because we are having a financial advisor (someone Jody and I had an initial consulation with) speak about surviving and thriving on one income. I think we’ll have a really good turnout because money (or lack thereof) is such an important issue for so many people who want to have one parent stay home with the kids while the other works. This particular financial advisor is the father of three – two biological children and one adopted – and his wife stays at home with them. So heRead More →

I woke up at 4:30 this morning and couldn’t go back to sleep. So after an hour of laying in bed, I decided to get up and online. I did some photography research and a little catching up on blogs and, before I went back to bed and crashed for a couple more hours, found this fun idea on Kristi’s blog. Go to Google. Type in “(your first name) needs” Use the quotes (come on, you knew that, right?) for it to work. Pick five (or more) random “needs” you have and list them. It’s pretty amusing what results you get. :oD Give it aRead More →

OK, OK, I know the title is a bit suggestive. And the contents of the Boobie-thon site are definitely suggestive (the main page is work-safe, but the picture pages are NOT). BUT, BUT, BUT, BUT…it’s all for a good cause. The Blogger Boobie-thon is in it’s fourth year of celebrating and honoring boobs (of both women and men) while raising money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation and this year, also the American Red Cross to benefit victims of Hurricane Katrina. Anyone and everyone (18 years old and up) can submit pictures to the site. Covered boob pics go on the free page and bareRead More →

It’s time for another round of Half-Nekkid Thursday. I missed last week’s since I was on vacation and admit I didn’t prepare well for this week’s. My daughter brought a shoe out of my closet to me earlier in the week and as it sat here beside me this morning, I decided to throw it on for an impromptu pic for HNT. So here’s my foot and shoe (and a little leg). :) Now go see who else is playing HNT this week over at Osbasso’s! Or read the Guidelines for HNT.
