Friday Stories

Here are a few stories from our week:

I shared that we put the potty out for Clay a few weeks ago. At first he wouldn't go near it without Mike or I holding his hand. Now? He has to go talk to his potty a few times a day. He's actually just talking to the Cars characters on the back of the lid, but still, my kid is talking to his potty. He's a silly one and for that I will be forever thankful.

On Sunday it was a glorious 72 degrees so originally I had planned to take Clay to the playground. Then I came to my senses. Have you ever been to the playground on a random warm day in the winter? It.Is.Packed. So off we go to the greenway. Clay loved getting to walk like a big boy. He spent half of the walk trying to run, a quarter of it clapping (for the runners??), and the other quarter stopping to point out all of the doggies. He's also gotten strangely good at imitating different dog noises/barks (yapping and panting are his two favorites).

On Monday I got caught up on a few of my #snailmail365 cards (that might or might not be still in my purse)... It's safe to say that a) I love the color pink and b) I'm obsessed with Target. By the way, those Sharpie pens are the JAM. Yes, I just said jam.

I did it, I got my hair chopped off. It's not as short as I had wanted it (which honestly may be a good thing because I might have gone into shock if I had cut that much off at once) and it's kind of an awkward cut. Well, it's not awkward if I actually take the time to blow dry it but it's definitely not the kind of cut that you can just let air dry which means this girl is rocking a lot of pony tails.

Bahahahahaha. Liz recently gave me some clothes of Clay's back that I had given her for Carter to wear and I found this. Clay's first outfit ever! Clearly Clay has gotten much rounder and a lot longer. I'm sure his future girlfriends will appreciate this picture way more than he will...

If I can't let my hair air dry I have a huge problem, I don't even own a blow dryer. Please don't take my girl card.

You hair looks adorable! I can never let my hair air dry, it turns into a big old mess of frizz. haha

That last picture of Clay with the same clothes...too cute!

Great pictures. I love the hair cut. I always let my hair air dry. If i blow dry it becomes a huge frizzy mess!

SHARPIE PENS. How are people using other pens? They're missing out and I am sad for them.

Time out. Time out! Sharpie has a pen? I know exactly what I'm going to hunt down tomorrow on our regular Target run. Speaking of Target - the One Spot for stationary? LOVE IT!
I also love your hair. CUTE!!
Lastly, that comparison pic of Clay in that little outfit - that must make it's way into graduation/wedding slideshows. :)
