Hanna, etc

We didn't get washed away by the hurricane, but it was the most intense rainstorm I've seen in a long time. And my dog didn't care for it. Come to think of it, neither did my kid.

At the moment, things are going really well with J. He is eating well, and sleeping great. He is really making leaps and bounds with his speech and motor skills. We happen to be playing the catch-me, catch-me game in public places though. I wish that would end. My friend Amy once said to me, "With kids, it's just one nauseating phase after another." After wiping boogers and butts all day, there never was a truer statement. I try to keep my perspective, that it will always be something. Good thing my memory is all but obliterated from sleep deprivation. I'm like a dog, I walk into a room and I can't even remember why I am there half the time. But I'm happy. :)

My layout today is brought to you by Wordle. If you haven't checked it out, you should go let out your inner graphic design artist and play. Kristy Wiseman at SC challenged us to do a layout. And I realized when I scanned the layout that energetic is spelled wrong. No spell check on the Wordle, I figured that out for you. :)

Here is mine with Cosmo Cricket Get Happy Paper plus some Studio Calico kit stuff:


And this one is completely from the Studio Calico Sept kit:

Ok, you'll have to wait one more post for the RAK. We are not yet to 10,000 posts (almost) and I have one more layout to do. I'm trying to be scientific about these things here. If you stop by today, I am considering adding more photos to my blog in addition to layouts, is that something you would be interested in? Or just layouts? Let me know. I hope to add some clues to this post a little later. Until next time.

You know I LOVE photos...so that would always be a treat.
I agree....the phases and stages just go from one thing to another...and that happens until they leave home...then you are remembering how fun those phases and stages are.
Hang tight!
