I might be new at this but…

I’m guessing since my 13 month old’s poopy diaper smells like blueberry pie rather than poop that he is probably, most definitely, highly likely eating too many blueberries…

Just a guess. Shoot. Those are his fav!!

Cuddles are the best. Whether you’re the big or little spoon or a dog cornered on the couch by a super lovey 12 month old. Nothing better!

You know what I love?

Checking my baby’s diaper for poop by looking down the back side for any tracks of poop and getting poop on my finger and under my nails because I didn’t realize the poop was all the way to the last centimeter of the diaper’s edge. Love that.

This is the face of a baby who wins at life. Starting with defeating his mama at lunch time. Sigh. He’s so cute though.

Learning how to not bonk your head looks exhausting.

Thank god I’m not a baby anymore. Looks rough to have so many ideas in your head ultimately resulting in bonking your head.

Happy baby noises and lots of drool make for one cute video.

Every day. He plops his baby bum in front of the bookshelf and goes to town taking each book out and judging it by its cover. If he really likes it, he’ll crawl on over to me and sit nestled into my lap and I’ll read him the book up until he decides to get another one… repeat.

Planning Cooper’s First Bday Party

So far I know I want his baby friends and our adult friends at the same party. There may be beer. There may be grub food. That’s about as much as I’ve come up with.

Need help thinking of ideas! Anyone on Tumblr have any ideas or recommendations they want to share? An acquaintance of mine is having all their guests share a memory of her baby to be turned into a keepsake given to her when she turns 16. Cute, right?

Just waiting to get out of this creative slump I’m in. Brainstorm time! His bday is in February!
