Robot Man!

We had a lot of wake ups last night so I was bummed when Ayden chose not to sleep in today. He was up and at 'em at 6:30am which was nice for David since he got to get a few baby smiles before he left for work. I would have been happier if he had slept until 8:30 like he's been doing lately. The good thing that came from it? A solid morning nap with Ayden in his bed and me in mine! :)


Since Thursdays are storytime days, we ventured out and met my sister and her two kiddos at the bookstore.

Ha, he looks absolutely thrilled to be there... :)

At story time they give you a punch card. After 5 visits, you get $5 off a purchase of $10 or more. We came away with Robot Man! Ayden is a fan. The coolest part is that his head spins around and makes a very intriguing clicking noise.


We have a new Trader Joe's in our town and we were planning on visiting it for opening day today. We figured out that it opens tomorrow so that plan didn't pan out so we went to Whole Foods instead. When we got home, we played and did a few chores. Look at how much water usually goes down the drain while we wait for the water to warm up when we wash dishes!


We used it to water our plants and have added this to our list of ways to conserve water. Then I did some computer work while Ayden napped in the Moby.

When David got home we played some more:

Make way for Prince Ali Ababwa!

and then I made my Love some dinner :).

The first heart-shaped chicken breast I've ever seen!
Enjoying an ice cube in the mesh feeder.  Not long until we start solids!
David's parents are visiting Japan so we went to their house to water their plants and check on things. I wore Ayden on my hip with our pocket sling and he had fun feeling all the plants and watching David wrestle the hose.


I didn't think to bring his night time attire and of course, he fell asleep on the way home.  I was worried that he'd throw a bit of a fit while I got him ready for bed like he has in the past but he actually held it together pretty nicely.  I've started a new thing where I get him ready, read him his books (if he's not too far gone), kiss him goodnight and then put him in his crib and sit in the glider.  He fusses a tiny bit, rolls over and back a lot, plays with a couple of toys every now and then, but eventually falls asleep.  I suppose I'm letting him wind down on his own which is definitely favorable over him needing us to help him.  If he needs me for any reason I get up, walk over and tend to him without talking and sit back down.  I need to start timing it because I'm pretty sure it is getting shorter every time.  Maybe in the next couple of weeks we'll be able to say goodnight and leave the room.



  1. Love the water idea. I don't know why I didn't think of that considering we have rain barrels collecting all rain water for our garden. Love your sling what brand is it and do you like it?

  2. Hey! I see another movie reference! Lol

    P.S. I love the idea to catch all that water. Such a common sense thing but easily overlooked!
