Cool Comfort

Posted by Kim on Sunday Nov 28, 2010 Under Mama Style

Trying to stay trendy with little dirty hands and mouth, while carrying a sippy cup and juggling a boy with trucks is not so easy.  I tend to go for comfort every time.  I always see cool stuff in shops and think to myself, “I could throw this on to run to the store.”  Yet, when the time comes, I’m in my sweatpants.  Yep.  Every.  Single.  Time.  I want to change, but I can’t.  However, I have found one possible solution…jeggings!

I usually like to have my socks on.  (Wigwams are the best.)  But, these little numbers have proven quite comfortable.

I also don’t do hair, but I feel in love with this headband…too bad it broke!

This post is making me sound real stylish, I know.  I have good intentions, it’s just the follow through is difficult for me.  Maybe next time I’ll be the mama at the store picking up a few groceries, with baby in tow, looking like I stepped out of a magazine…NOT!

First: Hair Cut

One minute you’re a baby and then with the swift sweep of the razor…poof…you’re a little boy.

(These two pics were taken the same exact day.  Just a few hours apart.)

My Little Meat and Potatoes Man

Posted by Kim on Saturday Nov 13, 2010 Under Uncategorized

You love your food. Maybe it was the careful attention I paid to everything I ate while you were inside of me. (A berry bowl every morning. Freshly blended smoothies every night. Spinach or peas at dinner.) Maybe it’s the fact that your dad has created the most healthy eating environment for you possible.  I’m not quite sure what the reason, but you came out of the womb with an appetite. A BIG, ginormous appetite…an all-day-and-all-night appetite.

3 days old and you’d hug the bottle every hour and a half to two hours as if you were completely starving. Making the sweetest little sounds as you filled your belly.

Look at you now…a year and a half later. Perched on daddy’s lap. (Your favorite spot.) You still got it going on. I’m not a good cook by any means. Actually, I suck. But I try. I try so hard for you. I love how you love to eat and it makes me feel good to nourish you. To be able to give you something you find pleasure in.

How you love to dip your own steak in Worcestershire. You dip so perfectly. Paying careful attention to the treasure in your hand.

You feast like a King. As well you should my little Prince. May your days be delicious!

Tru Music: I Love You Too

Posted by Kim on Saturday Nov 6, 2010 Under Tru Soundtrack

YouTube – Ziggy Marley White House: I Love You Too

I tell you “I love you” a ba-jillion times a day and sometimes it just doesn’t cut it.  Wish there was a way to explain love, but Ziggy has a pretty cool definition.
