Everyone who knows me knows that I love taking pictures. If I could pick my career all over again, I would probably opt for photography and I wish I learnt more about it. I know it's not too late, but with a little one, priorities shift. Maybe some day, I'll be able to explore this hobby and passion a little further. For now, I can just drool over fancy new photography products/tools and use my little guy and our puppy as model guinea pigs! How wonderfully sweet are these La Sardina cameras?

No, I wasn't on vacation because I would've told you beforehand. The blog server was down and I was panicking the entire week because I had no idea how to fix it. But thanks (again) to my computer whizz buddy, I finally figured out it was a silly problem I could've fixed right away. I swear I'm the most computer illiterate person on the face of the earth. So I apologize profusely for the sudden disappearance.

Painting

Yesterday was a painting kind of day. S found a paint brush on the desk and decided it was a painting kind of day :) So we rolled out some paper, taped it down, gave him 5 water paint colors and a bowl of water and off he went - free-style! I love that he tells stories with his pictures now. His favorite being "the ocean, a dolphin swimming, a whale swimming and some fish". Drawing and painting are some of his favorite activities now. What do you think? A new Picasso or DaVinci on the rise? hehe

Potty Training

Some of you have asked about our potty training experience, so I'm sharing our little journey with you hoping that you might find some encouragement when training your little ones. Let me start by saying that just because we've been successful at potty training, it does not, by any means, make me an expert. I credit all the success to our little guy!

Happy Friday + Happy Mother's Day!

I can't believe this is going to be my third mother's day already even though my first was when S was only 4 months old. But each one counts, they really do. I always say this, but only when you become a mom can you fully appreciate what all the mothers in the world are capable of and how much they love their children. The sacrifices, the time, the patience, the strength and courage. Amazing doesn't even begin to cover it. Who said super heroes weren't real? And their super power? Motherhood.

Green Yet Colorful

Now that most grocery stores (and even some stores in the mall) require you to bring your own shopping bags, suddenly everyone is trying to find cute bags they can carry around with them in their purses or leave in their cars. Baggu seems to carry every color in the rainbow, so you're bound to find "your" color! They're reusable bags you can use for all kinds of things because they're designed to be hip.

Some of my favorites:

Our Pick: Potty

Now that the little guy is potty trained, potty's have become a very important part of our lives. We started out with the frog potty by Fisher Price (above), but since we live in a town house, we decided that having more than one potty in the house would be more convenient. This way when he tells us "I have to peepee!" we don't have to run up and down the stairs as fast as we can, carrying a pantless toddler.
