Here’s Daddy on his Harley. In this pic we were about to shorten the pants as they come in super long sizes. They’ll protect skin in the event of a fall and skid. The boots protect up past the ankles. The helmet comes with a high safety rating. The jacket is on its way in the mail. Yes, this is a lot of protection for a Harley man. He will most definitely get some grief for that, but safety comes first Next come three days of driving instruction then he’s on the road.
Daddy hates monkey embellishments and accessories. But that doesn’t mean Baby B can’t learn all about them. This is one of the 3-D books Chic-Fil-A gives out. I learned quite a bit reading this over and over to Baby B. It beats the cheap throw-away plastic toys you get from Mickie Dees. The food’s better too.
Baby B got together with her cousins on her grandparent’s anniversary. Shocked that she was no longer the only baby in the house, she demanded to be carried everywhere. She was also not amused when Mom-mom held the new baby who is exactly one year younger, almost to the day. Her youngest cousin, bottom right, looks just like a doll baby.
Baby B is nearing her 18-month milestone. So I’m planning to get her pictures for that up in within a week. For now, I’m putting a list of the words she knows and uses without coaching or help. I add a word or two every day, it’s amazing how quickly young minds take in and connect information. I thought a list like this would help me in the process of learning a new language. It should also be cute looking back in a few years.

Poor lil piggie…. Not really! We enjoyed eating a chunky piglet this past weekend. BVJr and family stuck the porker up on a rotisserie for 12 hours and carved him up the next afternoon. Also check out our cake and party sign.(Ideas nabbed from some creative Pinterest boards. Thanks ya’ll.)
