April Photo Challenge. Day 22: The Last Thing You Bought

To be honest, the last thing I bought was manure. I thought I'd spare you those photos. You're welcome.

Slightly cuter, we unveiled the last thing we bought for Lana tonight. My dad heads home in the morning, so I figure I'm going to need something extra special to entertain her. She's going to be one unhappy camper without Grandpa and MOOSE! to keep her company, and I've got tons of laundry and packing to do before we head for Colorado, so I need all the distraction I can get.

Lana's been OBSESSED with buckles for the last couple months. All she wants to do is lock buckles. Which is awesome, except she's super fast and she needs you to undo the buckles for her. Listening to her scream until you walk across the house to her high chair to help is not awesome. I'd seen the Buckley Boo featured as a house favorite on the styleberry blog ages ago, so with this latest fascination, I figured it would be pretty popular around here too.

So far, so good! I'll let you know if it saves us any meltdowns tomorrow.

( I think she likes it.)

April Photo Challenge. Day 18: Hair

What is there to say about the hair, really? She's nearly 19 months old and it's still barely there. She's still mistaken for a boy more often than not. And it's still coming in blonde. What are you gunna do?

I'll tell you what I'm gunna do: enjoy that I don't have to clean food out of the long hair of my MESSY eater 3 times a day!

In other news, yes, that's her fork in the shared salsa bowl. Because evidently sucking the salsa off your tortilla chip then re-dipping over and over again isn't getting the job done. I suppose it is the healthier delivery method for salsa consumption. And if you've ever tried Raf's salsa, you probably wanted to eat it with a fork too. Just admit it.

That Kid

 As it turns out, I have that kid. 
The kid with dried black bean soup all over her face.
The kid with dirt in her nails. (And all over my floors.)

The kid who thinks that the half-full "BOONS" the neighbor dropped off are THE GREATEST GIFT EVER RECEIVED.

Yep, I have that kid. I am so stinking lucky.

April Photo Challenge. Day 17: Something you don't like

Weeds. Though, it's not so bad when the whole fam is out pulling them. If only we'd started before they were dwarfing our veggies. 

Don't get too excited. I make no promises on a blogging comeback. But I decided at the very least I need some motivation to start picking up my camera. Too much time sorting photos on my computer and not enough time taking new ones makes me one grumpy mama.  So, why not try another little photo challenge. I hope you don't mind that I'm starting mid-month? Didn't think so.
