Papa's Ribs...

If there is one food PJ cannot resist, it is BY FAR Papa's Ribs. These ribs are mouthwatering, fall of the bone D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S! Along with this, he makes homemade BBQ sauce! The last time Papa came to visit and PJ was around 9 months, he made his ribs with his homemade BBQ sauce and gave some to PJ. He didn't do much other than gnaw on the bone with the sauce. This time, however, the mess was bigger, he ate the meat, and he had to have every rib bone that Papa finished on his tray! What a change a few months can make!

Here he is at 9 months...

Today at 14 1/2 months....

My new sewing, beading, scrapbooking, craft area...

End of February 039, originally uploaded by fsucutie03.

Here is my little craft area set-up in the guest room! I am pretty happy with the way it has turned out so far. I still have some more things I need to do to get it organized the way I want it, but for now it suits me perfectly!!! I went to JoAnns the other day and got a great deal on some coordinating pirate fabric with which I plan to make a pillowcase and a decorative border on a bag for PJ to take to daycare. (THANKS, JESS, for the great idea)! Since PJ's room is all pirate decor, I thought this fabric was just PERFECT! Now let's just hope I am able to make something nice!

Playing at the Park 2/22/09

PJ and I decided to go to the park and play! He had so much fun trying to climb up the slide, and then slipping and sliding down on his belly! At first when we got there, he was really uneasy and was biting his hand, but after a bit, he was running around just like the rest of the kids!

Grilling with Daddy

Tonite James grilled steaks for us and we decided to let PJ run around in the backyard. He chased the dog, giggled, and squealed the entire time as he explored every inch of grass! These kinds of things are just more of a reminder that he is becoming so much more independent!

My dear friend....

Jessica made PJ this AMAZING quilt. It has cute little dachshunds and hearts on it which are PERFECT! She took a lot of time to make this for him, piece by piece and I am totally inspired by her creativity!
Jessica and I have been friends for a lot of years and it is such a wonderful feeling to be able to still share our friendship together now that we are Mommies. She is such a kind, considerate person to everyone she meets and there is no way that this simple post can really let her know what her special homemade quilt for my baby boy meant to me...

Thank you, Jessica! xoxo

Little Artist...

This is PJ's 1st finger-painting from school! His teacher Miss Lora said he loved doing it! He freaked out when it was time to clean up because he wanted to keep painting!
