If the Sky is the limit, then what is Outer Space? OVER the limit?

The camara? Is out of control. Or rather, I guess that would be ME, out of control with the camara, poor thing. Anyway, I am just going to throw out a bunch of snaps and links today. No rhyme or reason - just me being lazy.

First, I owe a few gals some shoutouts..............
I would like to give a shout-out to Breast of Canada. I met Sue at BlogHer and was very impressed with her mission. What struck me the most is that her mission is to promote HEALTHY breasts. Meaning - let's all take care of our melons BEFORE there is a problem, 'kay? Check her out, because she provides loads of useful information there. Also, I have her calendar which was artfully done and is chockfull of healthy tidbits.

I would also like to give a shout-out to Baby Brewing - I purchased this shirt from her at BlogHer:

By mistake, she left an extra one with me, so if you would like a FREE medium sized shirt, I will perform a random act of kindness to the 1st person who emails me with their particulars.


Take Me to Your Leader


To get proper snaps in his "monthly" photo, I have to bribe him with toys. It works for about all of 30 seconds. I have some great snaps of him attempting to crawl OFF the chair, though.


Fine Motor Skills, THIS, Beyotch!
I knew having a baby would be fun. Good grief, I had NO IDEA how MUCH. Even with the stressful nap situation that has been such a struggle for all these months, he is still pretty damned entertaining. And now that we have a nap schedule sorta worked out, life is SO much easier. Lately, he has been obsessed with "putting things in" - corkscrew in wine bottle? No problem. Shape pieces in puzzle? No problem. Balls in rolling tracks? No problem. Daddy's keys in bucket? No problem. Not 'til the next morning, at least, when Daddy needs to LEAVE. However, as these pics indicate, there were some problems:

Daddy lets Arun sit on the counter so he can play with the fruits and vegetables. Ahem.

While seeing Arun attempt to shove his astronaut puppet into the rolling track was cute, I realized with horror that the bass speaker is probably, most assuredly, NEXT IN LINE.

I came out of the shower to THIS.

OMG I love that rolling track thing just from the little bit I can see in the picture. What is that and where did you get it, I need one!

Nice rack :).

I used to work at Bose store and one time thid guy came in PISSED OFF because his bass unit wasn't working right. Turns out there was a plastic Easter egg in there. He never apologized for blaming it on us though - we thought it was darn funny.

Jenn,
Garage sale, $5. That thing has been GOLD because even older kids like to play with it. I am still a little dazed that I allow such a Craptastic Plastic monstrosity in my living room.

Monkey,
:-P

Leah,
I need to figure out something - I have unsuccessfully attempted to get my hand down in it to see if I *could* pull something out if I need to.

Hey, that's modern art just waiting to be shown!

I love the necklace!

I also love the look of concentration when they are putting items within another item [or making the attempt], you can see their little wheels turning.

Wordnerd,
As long as he is NOT the next Jackson Pollock!

ModernDayHermit,
re: the necklace - Thanks! It's from Sri Lanka. But, of course, YOU would love it. :-)

re: the concentration - I love that part, too! I feel like saying, "DUDE, it's just a shape sorter. Get over yourself, already."

I went to put the vacuum cleaner away the otehr night and found apple slices in one of the little compartments...I think he's eying the DVD player next!

Thanks for you blog! My son is 16 months and a never ending source of amusement.

I'm pretty sure the VHS player is next inline. We sent our two year old over to Grandpa's to show him how to use his.

And I totally want the shirt....but I may not be first in line. But.....you're pretty....(that usually works with Zoot when I have a design screw up)

also ...boobs!yeah. I'm going to check her out, and how come you didn't introduce me.....selfish

By George....he's a genius! Seriously, stacking/sorting skills are definitely a baby milestone.

BTW, I love the two little teeth.

Haha, so true, I have to admit that I still wear my mangulsutra just because I think it's a cool necklace. It was a gift from my ex-sister-in-law so I wear it (mostly) guilt free.

I do seem to prefer jewelry from that area, it seems. It's more interesting.
