A Few of My Favorite Things

So I just have to share my new favorite thing . . . mommy’s long lasting maybeline lipstick – this stuff really does last all day.  I applied it in the car on the way to a lunch play date at Chick-fil-a and it stayed on even after bath – mommy had to rub some lotion all over my face to finally get it off.  It was great!

All in all life is pretty good.  I did end up getting 2 new molars after Aunt Jean visited – and perhaps a few more are coming.  I am drinking only from cups now and I sleep through the night almost all the time.  Mommy is really happy about that (although I do wake up at 6am).  See you soon!

Aunt Jean Comes to Visit

[flickr]photo:3787064450[/flickr]Aunt Jean came to visit July 13.  We hadn’t seen her since March.  She and I read lots of books.  Grant made her play lots of race cars.  Granddad and Aunt Jean have worked at some NASCAR races.  Grant got a book and a car.  I got a bib.  I stole Grant’s car when he wasn’t looking – the tires are very yummy.  Mommy said I am getting more molars – I just think rubber tastes good.  [flickr]set:72157621937701494[/flickr]
