We need to buy a plunger....and other stuff.

How is it that in 3 years of living in our house not once have we had the need for a plunger, but this little (almost) 11 month old can clog the toilet in just one diaper change? For those of you that don't know, we use cloth diapers. Which means when B goes #2 we must "dump the load" in the toilet before putting the diaper in the wash.

I did notice he didn't poo much yesterday, which explains the 3 stinky diapers today - and the abnormally large "presents" he left for me to clean up! Just one of those little "gifts" was too much for the toilet to handle!

He makes his daddy proud!

Brady was also cracking us up tonight at dinner. I made chicken parmesan and he ate an entire chicken breast by himself! Feeding him is so much easier now that he can often times eat what we are having and I don't have to make special meals for him. Anyway, he was eating his cut up chicken and of course rubbing it all over his face. The hair in the back of his head of sticking straight up and he looked too cute. He's been very entertaining lately.

Look at this face. Isn't he the most handsome baby you've ever seen?

Also, as I was blog hopping about a week ago I found a tutorial on how to make faux roman shades out of cheap-o mini blinds. The girl that posted the link had made some for her son's bedroom and I thought they were too cute, so I decided to give it a try myself. You can find the tutorial here. I must warn you though, it is very confusing. I really had to think it through as I was doing it. Please don't ask me questions about it though, it makes my brain hurt thinking about it!

Making them was actually very easy and I am quite pleased with the results, just the tutorial was hard to follow. Now that I know what I'm doing I think the next time will be much easier. I am planning on making some more for our master bath and kitchen windows.

I've still got a lot more updating to do. I realize I haven't blogged in a very long time, so I probably don't have any readers anymore. I accept that - it's my own fault! However, since I don't really have time to scrapbook, this is kind of a place for me to record some memories. I'm going to try to be better!
