Wordless Wednesday~ bathtime & popsicle bliss

~Best Bath EVER Award~
(at our house)
Hey Jaxy...   Popsicle bub?!!!!

I adore the absolute shock & amazement on that sweet face!
Life doesn't get much better than this.

This made a very Happy Jax!

Awww... right?!
Such a good sharer!

This kid is obsessed with the color blue.
Really cute, he found a shortcut...

"I take 5 mo mama!"

We had tons O' fun w/ our popsicle art,
It washed right off no problem at all!

I call him Mr. S

   Oh Gosh. I try, I try. I just (obviously) can't get the kind of results I'd like to w/ my cheapy point & shoot camera. So please know, that I know my pictures are not NEARLY perfect. I love entering photo challenges, not because I think I'm all that, but I think it's great practice & a wonderful learning experience. Plus... I have one handsome fella to gush over & show off! I am having so much fun learning from all of you. I know this road will be a lonnnng one, but I am truly enjoying every minute of it!

On with the cutie-patootie...

   Jax just started doing this,
 oh so adorable placing his  hand on chinny chin chin move.
He especially does this while he watches his fav Nick Jr shows.
I call him Mr S. (serious).

I think it makes my mad genius look extra smart!
He REALLY gets into his shows now,
it's so cute to watch him.

One of the five million Jaxy smiles that makes mama week in the knees

 I'm pretty sure that's dried finger paint on his cheek.

Xoxo, Melanie

Adventures in... hangn w/ the peeps, & a curly haired boy

Jax had some of his
 neighborhood homies over to play!

Lots of fun was had.
It is so much fun watching him really play w/ other kiddos.
(even if he is taking them hostage) lol

Snack time
I only had three chairs out.
Hello slide/chair...

The down part of using a slide/chair...
it's still a slide! (ahahhha)

Mr cool/monkey-man made his own homemade sprinkler (aka the garden hose).
As you can see, he was pretty proud of himself!

Mama's 100% pure sunshiny boy

Summer has been wonderful, but (DUDE) a bit hot.
I'm looking forward to fall!

Xoxo, Melanie

week in photos~ {Aug. 21st}

~our week in photos~

Daddy brought home a yummy surprise.
He kinda loved it!

After a full week of being sick, my monkey was all better!
We ventured out for a nighttime walk (in our jammies).

flashlight =  
probably not the best thing to give your 2 year old, on an evening walk.
It was impossible for Jax
not to try to shine it through EVERY neighbors window!

cheesy pringles & kisses

I guess my guy really wanted
 some mac n' cheese.
Btw, Costco brand (Kirkland) mac n' cheese is delicious.

I think the culprit left behind some major evidence!

(this dude was FLIPPN HUGE,
sorry this pic does not do it justice)
This is what I found as I got up to go potty @ 1am.
This is also what I had to wake my honey up to save me from @ 1am.
There is a hilarious story behind the demise of this spider,
but I had to promised my Greg I wouldn't blog about it!
Darn it.

Here is my sexy night & shining armour.
(He saves me from giant spiders)

Kill shot! Kill shot!!
Oh gosh. We loved Date Night(the movie)
It's a great flick, if you  haven't seen it.
(i heart Tina Fey)
(AND Caroline Manzo- but that's another story for another time)

My very favorite smell on earth,
is freshly shampooed Jaxy curls.

After bath cuddles & story time.
It's the best stuff on Earth!

Hope all my lovlies had a wonderful week.

Xoxo, Melanie

Frivolous Friday~ just me

   Oh this is soooo awkward. I am super uncomfortable just posting a pic of ME. But as I get older I am feeling a bit more comfortable in my own skin(or trying to). So here goes. Yep. it's still awkward! Being a SAHMama I don't get all prettied up every day. I am definitely a girly girl to the max though. I love make up, all things pink, & i heart my earrings. I should wear them more often, sometimes they just make you feel better... ya know?!  Who says you can't wear fancy earrings with a hoodie & sweats?  Oh, what happened to me?

That's right... I became a mommy, & I LOVE it!
Photo Challenge Prompt~ something I like to wear, but don't wear enough.
~pretty earrings~

It's my first link up with Frivolous Fridays!!

Xoxo, Melanie
