Making "Herb-a-din" Rolls

Alden is all about learning to assist. When I suggested that we make some cinnamon rolls, he was game. As we scooped out the spices, he helped me smell the cinnamon for freshness. His declaration? "Mmmm, herb-a-bin!"

I Am a Robot!

This is the moment I have been waiting for an enjoying every week for nearly a year now...

Before we knew if Alden was a she or a he, I bought this robot sweater vest (read svest)with the hopes that no matter what, the little person would like it as much as I. Oooh, he loves it, indeed. Squawks "i-bot" when he sees it in the closet and must wear it.

I, personally, cannot rock a svest to save my life. My middle area is a little too pear-y shaped to not look like an intellectual carpenter ant (you know, thin arms and bulbous abdomen?). But Alden can make svests look like a great idea.

Pleasant Spring Time Growth

Last March, in our yard, Alden was checking grass out for the first time.

This March, he is checking IT ALL out. Up, down, rolling, yelling, etc.

From the Archives

While sitting on our porch in San Diego over three years ago (wha?), I observed a group of Emo kids trudging their slack butts along the perfectly sunny sidewalk doing their best to bring the clouds of misery with them.

Me: (not trying to hide my older lady judgement) "They all look androgenous. All their very thin bodies. Like a tube. Like a lollipop."
Dustin: "Yeah, a lollipop that fell on some hair."
