Photo A Day and Other Fun

Seven: (Belly) button

Eight: Sun(glasses)
(It was really cloudy that day.)

Nine: Front door

Ten: Self-portrait

Eleven: Makes me happy

A hot cup of tea and a new magazine to read :)

 So I've decided that in an effort to reclaim my blog from daily picture-taking (especially since I'm planning to do this all year), you can just view my Photo A Day challenge pics through my Instagram account on this website (or if you have the app on your phone, you can follow mrsrich!).
I may even figure out how to add a fancy button on the sidebar. :)

In other news, Clay has started a new job with Quicksilver Resources as the Financial Reporting Manager. (His first day was almost a month ago, but I never got around to posting about it.) His office is located in downtown Fort Worth, so he gets to ride the scooter to work most days - when the weather is nice. It's also nice that he works so close to home that he can join Max and I for lunch some days. :)

Little man is really moving these days and exploring EVERYTHING!
He loves to make laps around our little house, and I often find him in interesting new places.

(under the kitchen table?)

His new favorite thing is to pull up on just about anything he can get his hands on - even the wall (which is pretty funny to watch). Despite my best efforts, my little adventurer still sees his share of tumbles - and quite a few resulting bruises and scratches:

I have a feeling this will only get worse as he gets older!

Little man has FINALLY sprouted tooth #3! We have been saying for what seems like the last three months that his top teeth would be popping through any day - and now the third tooth has finally made its presence known. I have a feeling #4 is not too far behind...

So I have finally stopped tracking Max's every move on BabyTimer for my iPhone -
which is a huge step for this helicopter mama! I guess it was mostly out of habit that I kept tracking his naps and meals...but if I'm honest with myself, it was more likely a result of my OCD tendencies. So we're celebrating the small victories in our household today with a farewell to BabyTimer!

I got my TOMS ballet flats in the mail yesterday. (Happy dance!)
I had been anxiously awaiting their debut - and saving up some birthday/ Christmas money for the occasion. :) Can't wait to wear them soon!

 In the words of Al Roker, that's what's happening in our neck of the woods. ;)

Max is super cute!! I agree, his big eyes are precious! I guess the bumps and bruises are just a part of growing and learning to move, but it doesn't make it any easier on Mama:) Congrats on Clay's new job!
