Yankees Hat

Friday night Keith & Natasha came to Plainfield for Bingo night.  Before heading to the Eagles, they stopped and brought Miles a little something they picked up while in NYC.  Isn't it so cute?  Now he's really ready for some games this summer!  I got lucky at bingo and won $58!  It was a $175 pot, but I won it with two other people.  I'll take it:)

I included a couple outtakes because I thought these ones were pretty cute too.

Sleepy Jumper

The other day Miles was jumping in his jumper and just got tuckered out.  He kept resting his head and was cracking us up.  Then he would get all fired up again and jump and scream, then he would lay his head down again.

Ari's Pillow

I haven't had much time for crafting lately, but I made Ari a pillow.  It has a heart on the globe in two places, Missouri & Ethopia.  Or close to those places.  I mean, it is felt after all:)

23 Weeks

Springfield, MO

This weekend we made the trip to Springfield, MO to see Roger, Abby, and Ari.  We had a great time seeing them and were sad to leave Sunday.  Luckily, though, we will be able to see them in May when they come here for the race.  We did lots of playing and chatting.  We also squeezed in a little crafting (Roger wanted to do some glass etching), some yummy eating and drinking, and a little shopping.

Now for the pictures.  Here is Ari showing Miles all the cool toys on his play mat.

Here he is showing Miles what his jumper can do.

Then he wanted to get in the jumper too:)

Ari has a pretty sweet kitchen to play with.  He made us some breakfast.

Then it was Ari's turn in the jumper:)

Miles riding Rody.  
This weekend while shopping, I got Miles these red Chuck Taylors.  He doesn't really have any shoes that fit him right now, so he needed some.  That's how I'm justifying them anyway.

It was so much fun to see the Wassons!  I am looking forward to when the boys can play together.  I leave you with a video of Miles in the car.  He did pretty good for such a long car ride.  I can't wait until he likes to watch movies and we can pop one of those in for at least a little of the ride!

Yummy Toes


Miles has been in love with his toes for some time now. He has been stretching and trying to get them into his mouth, but just can't quite get them there. Well, while changing him Sunday morning, he was able to get them in his mouth. Good thing he has socks on most of the time. We don't want toe sucking to become a habit around here!

Yankees Jersey

Miles' Great Uncle Tom got him a Yankees jersey.  We had to try it on!  Even though it's a little big, we thought it was too cute not to share!




And did you notice his Yankee socks?

Glass Etching

I keep forgetting to blog about this, but I have been meaning to for a while.  We got T.J.'s dad some glasses for Christmas.  While they were nice, we thought they were a bit plain.  So I did a little etching to spruce them up.  It was really easy.  First I just printed off a graphic that I wanted to have on the glass.  I cut that out, then traced it onto some contact paper.  Then you put the contact paper on the glasses like this:
There is special glass etching stuff you can get at Hobby Lobby or any craft store.  I painted that on the glass part.  You have to let it sit for a few minutes.  Then you just wash it off and voila!
I made a Yankees emblem, an M for McCord, a Hawkeye, and a Chicago Bears emblem.
Here is a close up of the Yankee one.

Valentine's Day Kisses

Happy Valentine's Day!

From Baxter, Miles & Herky!
Last night T.J. and I celebrated our Valentine's Day.  Derrick & Keriann went out to eat a romantic dinner, so we had Chinese takeout.  T.J. got me tulips, which I love!  Nothing says spring like tulips!  Then we wrote each other love letters instead of getting cards.  I love this.  Because although cards are great at saying how you feel, there's something very similar in a lot of cards.  The letters from the heart were the best!  Then we ended the night by watching the Grammys.

Here is Mr. McDroolerson!  It's a little hard to see, but his shirt is soaked up at the top.  It might be time to start wearing bibs all the time.
My tulips:)

22 Weeks

Miles, at five months you:
  • love your toes
  • are teething, which results in lots of drooling
  • are reaching for everything
  • put everything in your mouth
  • have rolled over a few times both ways
  • love when we sing and whisper to you
  • hate peaches (we don't blame you, though, they smell like feet)
  • love your puppies and laughing at them
  • jump or play in your bumbo for fun
  • have put the whole pacifier in your mouth and freaked your mom out
  • are not quite sure about your little bath seat yet
  • like to watch the fire in the fireplace
  • don't love your swing or bouncy chair
  • recognize your bottle and get really excited when you see it
  • don't like to smile for the big camera unless someone is distracting you

It's Tub Time!

Remember this chair from yesterday?  Well, we tried it out last night and it was a success.  Miles can't quite sit up on his own, so we have to make sure he doesn't lean forward too much.  It's like the Bumbo, though, so it makes it easier for him.  I like this chair so much better than the little tub, though, because he can play and enjoy it more.






Does this towel look familiar?  I won it on a blog giveaway a while ago.  But wouldn't you know it?  I can't find the post to link it to.  I really need to start doing the tagging of posts stuff:)

Miles Day

I am all caught up on work today, so I had a Miles day. I didn't even turn on my computer, which is a nice change. I am blogging from my phone tonight.

Here are some pictures from today:






We got this new bathtub seat for Miles in the mail today. We can't wait to use it tonight!





This ball toy is his favorite! He can sit and watch the balls forever.
