I'm excited with the new blogger layout released this week I can make my photos even bigger! Because when it comes to photos of these little faces, bigger is better, I'm sure you all agree ;) That's why I've always loved this blog but never knew how to do it myself. So, thanks, Blogger.He's got some serious dry scalp going on. Neither of my other two ever had cradle cap or dry skin on their noggins. Anybody have some recommendations for some shampoo that will get rid of cradle cap? Preferably one you don't have to order online and something all natural or organic. (Obviously I'm not over-bathing him and drying his skin out. Ha! Don't worry, he has had a couple more baths since that post ;)
A few things I'm happy about today:
- My bestest bestie is going to be here in 21 days! My Candy girl from Cali and her adorable daughter Ava are coming for a way-too-short visit in May. I'm so thankful the Lord has provided us opportunities to see each other at least once a year (except one. We've only missed one year since we met our first year of college!) She makes my heart happy.
- Jon got asked to speak at some conference for Edward Jones agents in Oklahoma City in June and they're paying for the whole family to go along! We've never had an all expense paid trip anywhere and I'm pumped! I mean, I hear Oklahoma City is like the Paris of the Southwest. (You've never heard that? You sure? Hmmm.) But heck, I don't care where it is. We live in Iowa, remember? And they're paying for my food and I love to eat free food! (I love to eat any food.)
- I took all three boys to the mall tonight by myself. We ate dinner in the food court (love me some D.R. Deli!) and went to the Gap (extra 40% off clearance! score!) and we only had two teeny weeny meltdowns. HUGE success! Ok, Dawson had his paci for a bit (gotta get rid of that thing soon) and Channing screamed the whole way home (he still hates to sleep in his carseat. Hopefully that will change when he can actually lift his thumb to his mouth. Fingers crossed.) but nevertheless, I never once felt tense or stressed. I was so proud of my boys and myself!
- Picmonkey.com. I was heartbroken when Picnik.com announced they were shutting down. But they recommended Picmonkey and I have to say, I like it even better! These next two photos were edited with the setting "Daguerreotype" and I love it. There are so many cool ones on there. (Yes, I know you real photographers scoff at these web sites but I never claimed to be anything but an amateur so I will continue to use these web sites with no shame :)
