Revisiting Old Toys

Testing Out the Jumper

I'm horrible at putting away Little E's old toys and baby stuff, always finding excuses to let it stick around just a little longer. I'm in denial that he is growing up. Not too long ago he found his old doorway jumper, and I decided to let him take it out for a spin just one last time. He was a big jumping fan, and he would jump while I pumped in the mornings. Oh the memories.

He is a bit tall on the highest setting but still fits. He jumped around for a little and spun around. It didn't take long before he got tired of this contraption. He happily walked away but enjoyed his short time in the jumper. I wonder if he remembers jumping in it when he was a tiny baby.

Fun Photo Booth Pictures

Last night H decided to resurrect the Macbook that sits by its lonesome in the corner next to the TV. I had a little fun with photo booth on the laptop this morning, and here are a few pictures for your viewing pleasure.

While browsing through the folder, I found some old photo booth pictures from March. He used to be so little! How did he grow up so fast?

Side Note: A few weeks ago we were walking around at the mall, and Little E pointed to the Apple store, guiding H to head towards that direction. The store is currently undergoing renovations, but the famous Apple logo was easy for Little E to spot. H and I both thought really hard about how E could recognize the logo. The only thing we could come up with was the cover on the iPad case with a faint apple logo on the black case. Hmm... I think we have a little techie on our hands. He knows which devices are capable of steaming Netflix. Should I be concerned? Maybe...

Hello! I'm Back!

I have been meaning to update this little blog for some time now, but life gets in the way. I have so many things I want to write about but never enough time. Being a SAHM is challenging, and each day is always different. I usually write up posts during Little E's naps, but I find myself napping at the same time he does because I need a break too. He also dropped down to one nap, which ranges from an hour to two hours. That is significantly less time for me to have time to myself and clean up the house. I'm lucky to have my younger sister staying with us this summer to help out around the house. I'm not sure how I'm going to manage taking care of a toddler and trying to get dinner on the table once she goes back to school. The extra set of hands has helped tremendously.

Maybe by writing this post I will feel held responsible for keeping up with the blog. I go through dry periods every now and then, and I always go back wanting to write more and to improve.

Here's a glimpse of what I have been up to lately...
