The Sale

I once again loaded up on all of Evan's fall and winter clothes at the consignment sale last night. I'm really glad they only have this twice a year or else I would be in serious trouble. So much cuteness to be had!
I'm a sucker for a shirt and pant set - for $3! These are the best deals I think. I admit sometimes it's a bummer when you really like a shirt but the pants are not in the best shape or vice versa. But again, for $3-$4 you can't beat it!
I went crazy on the shirts as I always do but I can't resist!
 I tried to go easy on the pants but in the end as I was sorting them I couldn't give any of them up.
I must say this little Old Navy jean jacket was quite the steal at $3. Never been worn!
And lastly of course some PJ's and sleepers.
All in all I'd say this sale was a success.

For the Love of Cheesy Poofs

I was noticing today as I went through some photos of this past month how many of them had a sneaky little cheesy poof in them. Evan has an addiction to these Gerber Graduate Lil Crunchers - we call them cheesy poofs. They are the solution to any meltdown thus far.
He knows I have my little snack bag stash of them in my purse.
If you rattle the can he comes running like a puppy to kibble. He will hold the can out until you open the lid for him so he can dig his little hands in them.
It really is cute but jeesh, I can't get a decent photo without those sneaky poofs in them!

Little Big Man

Where exactly has the time gone?
This little dude is a bundle of energy and I love it. Yes, it can be exhausting but I just love this age right now. He's walking like a champ and he really never stops exploring.
The weather finally broke a little yesterday (now in the 90's instead of 100's) so we ventured outside for some photos. It had been a little while since I had tried to take any and boy oh buy has he gotten fast. I realize I will need a much faster lens if I'm going to keep up with him. He's a lot of fun though and I'm loving every minute of it.

We had a fabulous time in Cancun. The resort was great and we had excellent weather. Apparently it was hotter at home than it was in Mexico. Go figure.
This was our view from our spot by the pool  - heavenly.
We didn't have a bad view from our balcony either.
For as much fun as we had I still missed Evan terribly. The first few days weren't as bad but as days 5 and 6 rolled around it was a lot harder. I called home a few times to check on him and of course he was ok but it almost made it worse. I was sad to leave the resort but also happy that I was going home to see my baby. Unfortunately our flight home was cancelled in Dallas so our reunion was delayed a day. Very very frustrating but what could we do.
When we finally made it home I wasn't sure what his reaction was going to be. It took him a couple of minutes but it was as if no time had passed and we were back to normal.
He seemed to change so much in one weeks time. He was saying "uh-oh" and "yea" which he hadn't said before.
One thing I notice right off was his hair. Had I just been too preoccupied to notice how out of control long it had become?

So after dinner tonight we took him for a haircut. He was so good and just sat and smiled. I hope all his future haircuts will be that easy!
Such a little boy.
