We're Still Alive and Kicking

Sorry for the missing posts.  September and October have been crazy months.  Ryan and I have caught a virus that we seem to keep passing back and forth.  It's not been fun.  Thankfully, Nugget has not gotten the virus.  He was in teething misery for a little over a week.  The poor guy cut three teeth last week.  Oh the slobber that comes out of this little guy!  We are changing his shirt three times a day!

A couple of weeks ago my computer decided it was finished.  I shut it down one day.  A day or two later I tried to turn it back on and it won't come back, it's dead, finished, done, kaput!  I need to have someone look at it.  I haven't had the time to unhook it and take it to my computer guru.  Could it be that I subconsciously keep forgetting to unhook the computer?  I am secretly hoping Santa will have an extra Mac Book in his bag this year.  (Hint! Hint!!)

Nugget is doing well!  He is starting to say words.  Even his babble has changed.  Nugget is starting to roll cars on the floor and he'll say, "Vroom, Vroom".  It is too cute!  Too quickly my baby is becoming a little boy!

Yesterday Nugget had his 18 month check up (I can't believe he is already 18 months old!).  After running a few earrands, Nugget and I stayed home the rest of the day.  It was nice to have the extra time to do some chores around the house.  While I was vacuuming out Nugget's high chair I looked up to check on him and I saw this:

Nugget picked up the end of the vacuum and started to help Mama -he calls me Mama and I LOVE it!  I know the picture isn't great.  The only camera I had handy was my phone.  I could not let this moment pass.  It is too dang cute!

Hopefully I will catch up on posting ~ no promises with the busy holidays fast approaching.  I sure wish time would slow down, just a little bit!!


  1. There is no sweeter sound than your little one calling you Mama!!! Oh so happy for you sweet friend that you have these precious times with Nugget!! How cute is he helping you?

    Love you friend!

  2. What a little helper you have there. Love that he's starting to say words - especially "Mama". Doesn't it just warm your heart?

  3. Little miss follows me around with her "mop" when I'm sweeping the floors....being a mama is the greatest!
