Easter / 6 month Pictures - Late of course

I'm a month behind on these photos - and with everything else in my life right now it seems. We took these Easter Sunday they also served as the boy's 6 month photo shoot (this is part 1). This weekend he will be 7 months. 7 months!

Sonny at 7 months:
  • cutting teeth - the other day he was drinking out of my glass and his bottom teeth made little ding noises on the glass and I almost cried
  • Laughs and laughs and laughs and laughs
  • Smiles and smiles and smiles and smiles
  • Loves to make friends on the train, on the street, in a restaurant, at the park - anywhere.  This boy loves new friends.  He will stare you down until you smile at him and then will smile and be your best friend until he picks his next victim
  • Pulls himself up to stand and can walk around things (unsteadily)
  • Good at walking holding onto fingers
  • Just about has crawling down - he can crawl just a bit, slowly and still lacks a little crawl confidence 
  • Loves dancing. His favorite dance songs are Empire State of Mind - anything with a beat really. Lately he has been going nuts over Daft Punk
  • Says Dada a lot Momma a few times (both on accident - but still)
A lot has been going on and I think this weekend I will dump it all out on here.  I still need to post about Florida too.  So much to do and never any time.

Today was josh's birthday.  Where do you think we went?  Any guesses? Yep, Vegetarian Paradise.
I love that man. Every day I still look at him and smile and my heart is filled with love and happiness.  He doesn't even have to do anything, I just see him and sometimes my eyes leak. There are so many reason's I love him, and those are things I want to keep to myself. Just know - if you don't already - Josh is a really special wonderful person and I sure am glad he was born. Happy birthday to him.

Now look at pictures of the cute kid we made:

I'm in Florida

Yep. In Florida. It is sunny and warm and humid and nice to be home.  We haven't done much really, but I think that is what coming to Florida is for - to do a lot of nothing. Especially before the new job starts.  That's right, I have a new job and it starts May 16th.  I'm actually really looking forward to the new job- as far as jobs go I think I will like it. Check back with me in two months after I start though.

My Dad loves the ocean, he grew up in Miami Beach and has always been drawn to the ocean.  He has dreamed of sharing that love and the joy it brings him with his grandchildren.  Yesterday, before the sun went down we went for a walk on the beach (my parents live pretty much on the sand of the beach) and these are a few of my favorite pictures. I love them.

You know those cook tops that just turn red when you turn them on? My parents have one in there kitchen and whoever was the designer of it did a crappy job.  The dials on the side make NO sense as to which burner they turn on.  This morning my Mom was making me oatmeal and while it was *cooking* I was showing her some of my friend's blogs.  She smelled something and turned around to find flames on the stove top/counter.  I looked up and sure enough the whole cook-top (which also serves as counter space in the small kitchen) was aflame and my Mom was pushing burning packets of oatmeal into the sink. I jumped up turned on the sink hose and sprayed the counter and flames down.
When she turned the stove on to heat the milk, she turned the wrong burner on accidentally.   The one she did turn on had the box of oatmeal on it and it caught fire.  Here is the aftermath:

 Oops. :)
