Lets Try...Videos

I've never used the video feature on Blogger...this is me giving it a shot.

**WARNING: I'm not a professional or even a good amateur videographer by any stretch of the imagination.

**WARNING #2: The video is sideways.  I don't know how to fix it.  Please don't fall down while watching the cuteness.

**WARNING #3: Watching other people's babies isn't nearly as sweet as watching your own...but it has been known to cause baby fever.  You've been warned.

7 Months and a Tooth

Saturday, April 2nd, was Jimmy’s 7 month birthday/anniversary/mark…whatever you wish to name it. The first 6 months went pretty fast but this last month went even faster and I know that the next 5 months are going to fly by at warp 8 (since warp 10 is unattainable which is obvious to all the Trekkies out there).

Saturday morning I drug the play pen out to the back yard and rigged a makeshift shade with a blanket and Jimmy sat and played with his toys while Daddy cut the grass and I potted (is that a word??) a jalapeno plant, a new tomato plant and a dead tomato plant. I’m hoping that my thumb while hopefully is the general green is also a very white thumb which would indicate that I can resurrect dead plants. I really enjoyed getting my hands dirty and wearing my crocs in the very official position of gardener/landscaper. It made me feel productive. I think Jimmy really enjoyed playing outside and watching me work my plant magic too.

Sometimes life plays tricks on you at the craziest times.  As most of you know today is April 1st...also known as April Fools.  I'm usually prepared for all kinds of shenanigans for a few days leading up to and a few days following April Fools.  I'm on high alert basically from March 28th - April 4th just in case someone decides to pull an early or late prank on me.

There are years when I'm able to plan and pull off a pretty good prank and then some years where I have zero ideas for a prank at all.  I had a doozy for this year.  Then life tricked me...on April Fools!  How appropriate and just plain crazy!
