Tummy Time!

Tummy time!More Casey? Of course, there is no crafting being done here... Casey is the biggest WIP I've ever worked on. This was last week, he just started holding his head up. He looks surprised, doesn't he?

Gray day... go away vog!

Gray day
 Some days the sun hides from us and we get this purple hazy weather. Kinda fits my mood today - Casey had his first melt down last night. A bout of crying/screaming - tears, red face and very little sleep for mom. Then he fell asleep and all is well. He woke up with a big smile on his face as if nothing happened.

Yeah, some of my Mondays are like that too...

Let's hope for a better day today.

Hard at work

At the keyboardThis mom needed to go back to work at the New Year. Luckily the little man is allowed to stay with me during the day. Here he is hard at work in front of the computer with Mr. Hippo and his thumb to keep him company.

(yes, that is some M&Ms to keep me happy during the day)

Mom's toy

Last year apple started a replacement program for first generation the ipod nano. I got an email but we were busy with Casey and I did not want to hunt for the old ipod. I loved this nano when it first came out, but it was pushed aside when the "latest and greatest" ipods were released. Fast forward to mid-December, I found the nano, backed it up and looked for more information on the replacement program. All indications were that Apple would replace the ipod with another 1st generation ipod. No biggie, the old one was having trouble holding a charge anyway, so I started a request for replacement. Apple sent a prepaid box via FedEx, all I had to do was pack it and drop it of at Fedex. Look what was delivered this week!
The letter says thank you for participating..... due to the demand you may receive and newer model...Yup, I got a newer model. How did I get so lucky? When Apple introduced this smaller nano, I couldn't justify the purchase just because it was "cool". Others are saying that the replacement is a 6th generation, but I don't know how to tell the difference. All I know is we got a new ipod to load and play Casey's music. Thank you,, Apple!

Play time

Casey at workOh, my so many things to look at on this play mat. Casey got this mat from his cousin Baylee. He likes to stare at the music box.

His favorite toy in this set is the octopus (which I forgot to bring today). He will grab on the ring and hold on for quite awhile.This mat will stay at the office and will provide a distraction for 20 minutes at a time. Thanks, Baylee!

A new toy...

Actually there were many new toys, but this is one of my favorites. It is the Soothe and Glow Seahorse by Fisher Price. It softly plays lullabies for 5 minutes, just enough time for Casey to fall asleep.

(Well, he wasn't quite ready for a nap when this picture was taken)
