Baby, it’s cold outside

Category: eco-mama @ 7:56 am

It was cold enough outside and inside to warrant the Cutest. Hat. Ever.

We’re going to a Halloween carnival put on by my mom’s group today. And yesterday was busy busy. My photography club met in Baywood Park (photos to follow soon) so Dixon got to go to Gran and Pop’s for a few hours. They took him to the park where another (rival) mom’s group was meeting and he got to paint a pumpkin and partake of their snacks. Then, we had pizza for dinner and I got to scrapbook with the gals for five blissful hours and got 10 pages done!

He sure can clear a room in a hurry.

Our neighbors stopped by yesterday to watch a football game and left moments after this happened:

Dixon: “There’s a raisin on my pee-pee.” pulls small brown nugget out of underpants
Michelle: “uh, I don’t think that’s a raisin. I saw your mom just put clean underpants on you. And you haven’t been eating raisins lately.”
Me, grabbing and sniffing the alleged raisin: “that’s no raisin!”
Michelle: “uh, we’re late to visit my parents house”

pumpkin patch

Thursday, my parents took us to the pumpkin patch. The cool one with the enormous bounce house. Dix had a great time pulling Gray around in a wagon. The rest of the pictures are here.

Dixon the charmer

Category: eco-mama @ 11:11 pm

He can turn it on and off like a switch. I know this one is kind of blurry, but I love it. I love the spirit in Dixon’s eyes, and I love the laughter in Gray’s face. These are my boys…

Is it Halloween yet?

Category: eco-mama @ 11:06 pm

I spent a couple of hours today designing a Halloween card, only to realize that I forgot the crucial step of defining a size first, so it wouldn’t print correctly. But here it is anyway, looks fine online.

Wednesday, we went to the Avila Barn to take some pictures.

it is so hard to get them to sit still together for a minute!

Too cool for pumpkins. Is he pouting or throwing a gang sign?

At least this one still loves me enough to look at the camera for a second.

the ultimate in babywearing

Category: eco-mama @ 2:14 pm

There’s a sub-group of slocountymommies called the attachment parenting group. We’ve also been referred to as the cloth diaper cult, because most of us cloth diaper our kiddos. We met today for a babywearing playgroup, where we talked about the carriers we like and help new moms try out various models and choose one that works for them. I totally love my Ergo, but since I’ve been wearing Dixon in it lately, it leaves Gray out in the cold. I wind up holding him in my arms or pushing him in the stroller, and I know he prefers to be worn also. So today I got Dixon in the Ergo and borrowed Danna’s Becco for Gray. The boys were happy and it was surprisingly not uncomfortable at all, so I think I’m going to get a Becco now :)

Am I a total freak? I’d love to do this often, but I think people would stare at me.
