tummy time

Gordie typically loathes daily tummy time

were talking, high pitched shrills once he’s place on his stomach

but today something marvelous happened.

actually- nothing was what happened. Just a happy, content baby playing on his tummy!

i shrilled (instead of him) and whipped out my camera to document such a monuments moment!


It’s my duty as a Mom to wipe butts and noses, Kiss boo-boos and give lots of hugs & kisses.

But as i have become a Mama, i have found myself doing things i have never ever thought i would do.

like wearing a shirt with spit-up & pee on it all day.

i don’t mind. most of the time.

but this is a little more gross.

i pick my baby’s nose.

like, everyday.

exhibit A: subject had just woken up from nap with a whopper of of booger creepin out of his nostril.

yes, i may have helped it out a little bit, but you get the idea.

it’s like a pus-filled pimple just wanting to be poped

it’s like a scab just wanting to be picked

his boogers literally scream PICK ME PICK ME!

I swear i pick enormous boogers like this out of his nose daily

half the time he hates me doing it- but afterwards he’s always got this look on his face (shown above) that says “huh. so thats why i couldn’t breath.”

ode to a dear bear.

Ode to blu bear

Blu bear. You have literally stand the test of time.

For you were once my brothers bear- which ages you to around 20 years of fluff.

In the short month you have been Gordies, you have been nothing but supportive- not one complaint!

pooped on, peed on, spat up’d on, laid on by hairy beast, drooled on by a happy baby, tossed into corners, thrown under a crib and used as a tummy time pillow and a door stop.

and not to mention the 5 or 6 times you’ve been washed.

You’ve done us good blu bear. You make my slobbery,poopy, pee saturated baby happy. & not to mention make tummy time a whole lot more bearable.

and thats all that matters.


bath time

If Gordie can do one activity all day long it would be bath time! This kid looooves his baths.

he laughs. he coos. he blows spit bubbles. he kicks. he does his infamous stiff body stretch and he pees (sometimes).

fortunately, he hasn’t pooed yet (knock on wood…)

But he just thinks mama and dadda are hilarious during bath time- which of course, makes us feel like a million bucks

The hubs & the baben’s

You think you love your husband more than anything else in the world

and then you see him playing, holding & protecting your little baby, your family

There are no words, no feelings, that i can think of that describes the amount of love i have for these two.

my little family

my boys.

be still my heart

How about that lazy beast-dog Leo?

Leo leo leo.

well- Leo is still obsessed with everything that he thinks is food. if it has a wrapper like sound? he’ll run to you. If an object goes anywhere near your mouth? he’ll roll over for you. And lemme tell ya. This dog has perfected his begging skills

those big gushy puppy eyes? I die! his Chewbacca howl? I die again!

If he were to have a resume it would be something like this:

Leonidas dog person Arnett


try to act as human as possible annnnd eat and sleep myself to a coma.

Skills and abilities:

Begging for any form of substance. Sleeping. Being cute. Sitting on human chairs like a human. sprinting towards people i know i’m not supposed to meet. Scaring said people. Waking my persons up by whining, howling and placing my heavy head on there head or feet. Siting and howling in front of my persons so that they know i’m either hungry or i need to poop. Sleeping. Laying in the most inconvenient places like in front of the fridge, sink, doors, halls or in the middle of my persons small rooms (i like to keep them on there toes) . Eating. Having soft fur. Tripping my feeble persons. Not moving from the previously stated positions. Sleeping. Loving my she-person. Rolling in and eating questionable things. Playing with my dog friend Lilly- oh. and we like to share rotten questionable things. And that new hairless baby beast my people have? well, i love to lay on his blankets next to him & i don’t mind if he kicks me.



Basically, he’s amazing. and i love everything about this dog.

to el parque

It was a gorgeous day! I could not not be outside- especially with fall & winter approaching rapidly. So the crew & i packed up and strolled on down to a nearby park

Of course the dogs we’re on there best behavior and didnt eat nor roll in anything questionable (right..)

and of course Gordie stayed awake for the short 15 minute walk (15 minutes in babyland is like 5 hours)

needless to say Gordie got a short little nap in and the pups.. well…. they (meaning Leo) found a new scent that im not to fond of. That dog loves his rotting mulch.

but we had fun!

and it must of been Arties birthday or something because there were seriously flocks of birds flying from tree to tree constantly

which mean endless amounts of bird shadows to chase

which then translates into one tired dog.

However all that dog needs is a 10 minute nap and he’s all wagging his tail recharged and chasing more shadows and reflections. Not cool.

Leo was perfectly content laying next to me and Gordie in the shade while we watched little kids ride by on their bikes whilst Artie ran a couple miles.

Once Gordie decided to wake up he was completely fascinated with the kids on their bikes! He wouldnt break his stare for anything (trust me.. i tried)! He just stared at them, concentrating on their movement. No blinks. Nothin. (i must say- his mama was quiet the stareer in her days)

I love park days- they just make the day seem more… relaxed.

reach for the stars my little one

Gordie’s first goal of life.

Stick whole fist in mouth.

As of lately

Hello friends-

yes, were still alive & i’m sorry for the lack of post

i have lots to share with you but so little time to get it all said and posted

life is busy- busier than i ever imagined it would be. which is weird because some days i feel i’ve done absolutely nothing but still feel there are not enough hours in the day

any-who, i’ll be taking a short leave of absence & will start up again in september

these next few weeks we will be packing & moving back up to school- with a week visit at my hometown in between

So i’ll take lots of photos and share with you our adventures in september

but for now 100% of my time & energy needs to be with my little family

See you in a few weeks!

6 weeks!

like Sam

 my life basically consist of a few thing

1. feeding Gordie

2. changing Gordies diapers

3. burping Gordie

4. spending as much time with the hubs as i can


5. taking a bazillion pictures of Gordie- my phone is busting out the seams with photos entirely of him

life is good, life is indeed good my amigos

p.s we still havent decided if we are to call him Gordie or Max… i guess his personality will determine it. as of now the poor babe gets both- depending on what he looks like that day.
