baby fatness

is on the move.  she learned to butt scooch today.  and it is terribly funny to watch.  she looks like she is rowing.  right across my wood floors (towards the stairs of death).  i had to dig out the old playpen.  it’s time for all that fat goodness to be contained, whether she likes it or not.


and while she seems to be taking her sweet time (both the boys walked before they were a year) she fits right in my schedule.  i finally got around to picking my first carpet samples this afternoon.   i hope to be able to safely ensconce her in the basement before she becomes too adventurous.  i don’t like the though of her roaming loose on the bare concrete.  (i don’ t like the thought of bare concrete.  as my husband says, it’s not really about the baby.)


don’t worry, she wouldn’t believe it for a second.

    You know what’s great?
    When our parents took slightly embarrassing pictures of us (naked but for a diaper, baby chub and bow, or in the boys case, simply naked) they were relegated to boxes or albums now safely ensconced in the basement.
    Your children are shown in their adorable buffery to the world. Thank goodness.

    Gayla, I am going to top you with a sixth grand baby any day now. Grandchildren are so wonderful. And look she is showing teeth. Love, Grandma Sandy.

    I found your blog ages ago while looking for a Hooter Hider pattern.
    I have been reading it ever since. You’re just too funny.
    Your daughter is growing so fast! I love her eyes; they have so much personality.
