mini Daddy of course, but....

See any similarities?

Cleaning out the cedar chest and came across some baby pictures of yours truly.

Also, do the Antique Roadshow people take Zyrtec or Benadryl or SOMETHING because between the 1942 wedding gown that was Grandma's and the five mink stole, I am a sneezing mess.

Another gem: my CAT test scores from 1st grade. Oh, the good ol days! I listened to Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill while doing all this also :) It's a variety show around here today!

making like a baby

In other news...Maggie has a blog, Maggie has a blog, Maggie has a blog hey hey hey hey!!!!! My dearest kindred spirit has launched her blog and you can read thoughts from her excellent mind here: She really is quite splendid.

so long baby mullet

With most milestones, I come to a place where I make like Nike and "just do it". I hem and haw and feel sentimental and then, I'm just DONE. Whoa, I never really pieced that together like that before...anyway, Beau did well and kinda zoned out for his first stint in the big chair. It was time too as his locks are fuzzy most of the time. He is just so handsome now.
The title of this photo is ghettoflections :-) The high-voltage power pole near my house looks down right poetic reflected in a mud puddle surrounded by plastic litter.

Today I did some 30 day Shred with Bradie, who did practically the whole thing! During a shadow boxing sequence, Bradie simply remarks "...her eyebrows." Yes, Bradie I would not want to be on the business end of Jillian's eyebrows.

Something new: drawing. Bradie is drawing, drawing, drawing with markers! She also is working really hard at her letters and can write her name! I'll try and take picture of one of the many masterpieces lying around here. This brings up a question now:

What do I do with all these?!
