Sunday Scribblings

Or maybe I should call this Sunday Scramblings. What do you think?

Do any of you get to the end of the week and go, man, I had about 6 things to post about and I didn't write any of them! That would be me. So here's my go at recapping the week. And a few pictures thrown in! (I tried to do this last night actually, but my computer was being lame so I went to bed)

My poor little baby got sick Friday night. I didn't get a whole lot of sleep... for one I was up late editing pictures (see next paragraph for the reason) and then when I went to check on Cory I discovered he had puked in his bed. So we got him up, washed, changed, bed changed... and then he puked again. Repeat. About 2am I finally went to bed and he woke up again at 5. Thankfully not sick, but probably hungry. I gave him just a bit of water and his snuggly blanket had gotten washed so he could have that and go back to sleep. He let me sleep in until 8:30, which was nice, but still not nearly enough!

I decided to enter Cory in a baby model search to see if he could get on the cover of Parents magazine. Here's the link to the pictures I entered. Tell me what you think of them or if you feel really generous, "rate and recommend" them and they might at least get featured in the magazine!

Let's see... here's the start of picture randomness...

What happens when you leave boys alone at home?
Why, they make Kix trails for babies to follow around the house!

Here's Cory playing with the bottle of baby shampoo that Amber sent us. It's Burt's Bees and it smells heavenly!

I can stack up these cups and if Cory even hears me clink them together he comes quickly. If I manage to get them all stacked up before he gets there he then takes them off one at a time. With toy friend stuck in his mouth!

Cory's really good at pointing now and it's super cute! He also LOVES to go outside and check everything out.
Okay, so you noticed the clothing in the last few pictures. Not real warm. Well, we went from average 50 + degree days to 90+ degree days this week. Ugh! I guess summer is here with a vengeance! At least we can go to the park in the morning and evenings and not have it be too cold though!

This is my adorable son watching some neighbors move in.

In the middle of this 90 degree heat wave... we had a garage sale this weekend to raise some money for mom's Bible study (to pay for child care). We all brought stuff to Rachel's house and had a "pricing party". I hear the sale went well, but I wasn't there for that part.

Here's Jenny and Karen sorting clothes!

Oh, and here's a website I found today that I've spent a lot of time on. I found it through the Story of Stuff website. (If you haven't checked that out, please do!) It's called Skin Deep and it lists product ingredients for your toiletries (any shampoo, conditioner, lotion, sunscreen, make-up, etc.) and their possible hazards. There's some nasty stuff in some of the things we put on our skin and this stuff isn't regulated by the FDA or anything... I was mainly looking for a non-toxic sunscreen because Cory's been reacting to the water babies Coppertone sunscreen we're using. I think after looking at this I'm going to see if our local Target carries the California Baby brand. They usually scent their stuff with lavender (which I can't stand), but they do have a fragrance free option. Otherwise I might order it online.

And finally, we met with the life group couple that I mentioned in this post. They apologized and we talked about the mis-communicating and assumptions that caused this whole situation. It sounds like they're not so much into the life group thing right now so we're probably going to go with the other couple and start our own group. We went and had dinner with them tonight and just hung out. Good times!
