Its All About You You Know

filed under: Miscellaneous on December 8, 2009

I got to look at these sweet faces all day long today.



This picture was taken a few minutes before Hannah and Lukes mom arrived… he had been sitting by the Christmas tree and looking out the window, contemplating the complexities of life.

Either that or just missing his mommy.


My little Audrey is learning how to walk, and is really good at pulling herself up.  She usually uses my jeans or the couch or the wall, but today I threw on some shorts while we were hanging out playing at home.  I think Audrey must have 'de-pantsed' me like 5 times.

Usually I was frosting a cookie for holding baby Luke or pouring some milk so I would be standing there au' natural for a few moments. 

Getting 'de-pantsed' by your almost one year old is a humbling thing.


Just gotta say thanks for all the great comments lately… you ladies are keeping me sane!!  And your similar stories and always appreciated advice usually has me laughing out loud at my computer or nodding my head in agreement!

So thank you.

And be on the lookout this week for a "Commenters Appreciation" post!  I cant wait any longer… you all are just too precious to me! 

Oh, and of course be on the lookout for cookies.  Lots and lots of cookies. 😉

    Can I just tell you that a similar event happened to me in a public park? It taught me to never wear shorts with elastic waist bands and to always wear a belt. No matter what.
    My kids are 12 and 9 and to this day, I follow those simple fashion rules.
    I will remember that day forever.
    Oh, and cookies? Yum!

    1st of all Thank Goodness it’s not just me that get’s de-pantsed by my almost one year old! It is rather annoying standing there attempting to make dinner or put on make-up and there go the pants and my Adeline is whining looking up at me.
    Oh well…
    2ndly Love the photo’s you are a great photographer!

    Oh my goodness!! At least Nathan is not the only de-pantsing child around…It doesn’t normally bother me only the one time my father in law was standing in the kitchen with me.

    I’m looking outside at the blowing snow and the thought makes me shiver. I have to walk to school to get Matthew in a few minutes. And here you are making me think cold thoughts. Thanks.a.lot.
    Love you!

    Those cute little chubby cheeks!! precious. I turn into a grandmother whenever I see my friend’s little one. (not that that has anything to do with this post – it’s late in the day at my job at the “morgue” 😉

    Did I know that you watched other people’s kids every day? Did I just forget? Maybe I did, prego brain does it to you. And I so feel you on the pants. Whenever I have on sweatpants, someone manages to pull them down. Even my 3 year old has caught a fall with them and that is just so nice.

    That depantsing story is so funny! I never thought of that word before! It took me a minute to figure out what it meant.
