InstaFriday

I love Fridays and sharing a glimpse of our week through my iphone photos. Absolutely love it…it’s like scrapbooking for lazy girls.

In light of Asher’s “Failure to Thrive” scare, I took lots of evidence that he does, in fact, sit in a highchair with food on the tray. We found out that homeboy likes avocado, which helped him gain 5 ounces in a week. 5 glorious ounces!

I’m thinking Curious George would be the most appropriate 1st birthday theme for this monkey…

Happy Helper dusted all my baseboards and then started dusting my doors with his old sock dusting rag. You’re welcome future daughter-in-law.

Happy Helper did such a fantastic job that I paid him the $3 he needed to ride the train at the mall. He was ecstatic. Also…the train conductor stopped the train because my excited baby had his arm out the window waving at people. As in, stopped the train and walked back to our train car to tell me to keep his hand inside. Yeah.

I sent off a custom crayon roll order for my Etsy shop, Stitches by Sara. I really liked the way this one turned out.

We celebrated our 6th Anniversary and Father’s Day on the same day. It didn’t work out for us to go out alone, but we had “Fancy Dinner” at home…complete with our wedding china. Jonah loved “fancy dinner” and used the shrimp fork as his salad fork. Have I mentioned lately how much I love this kid?

I walked the aisles of Target with Captain America. He’s a fierce little fellow.

Happy Friday! What have you been up to this week?

    Love this entry! Guess my fav is the sock dusting. Beautiful, beautiful you and family!

      Thank you, Pat! Sock dusting…I always thought it was torture growing up, but Jonah likes it. Go figure.

    What a great group of pictures! He is thriving now!!

      Thank you Phyllis! We’ve always considered him thriving despite what the growth chart said. However, getting him to eat does take some effort. Maybe it’s time to hand him a brownie and show him eating is fun? ;)

    Hi there! Your boys are beautiful and how lucky are you that your little guy wants to help you around the house! I would have to bribe my five year old to do that. We call Aidan, our five year old, Monkey too. Love the nickname!!

    Have a great weekend!

    Your boys are both so beautiful! Asher looks delightfully happy. And while I would keep it in the back of my mind that he has a tendacy to burn a lot of calories I wouldn’t worry too much. MOST babies in America are obese – just like most adults in America! He’s probably much healthier than we are! Skinny is perfectly okay, but really… he doesn’t look skinny enough to be concerned.

      Thanks Patty! Delightfully happy is a perfect description of Asher!

    So much sweetness! I’m glad Asher is devouring the avocado. Just keep it up and try not to stress too much, OK? Let’s get together again soon!

      Devouring probably isn’t the right word. He tolerates it. I literally hand fed him. It’s a chore to get him to eat.

    Fabulous instagram photos! Yes, your future daughter-in-law will love you; teach him to clean toilets and she’ll think you’re the best EVER! ;)
    And a Curious George themed birthday party? Fantastic idea! You could do such cute things with that. {I’m sure Pinterest is full of ideas!}

    Aww! Happy Anniversary!
