I Have a Problem

I love Starbucks Lattes, my favorite is Peppermint Mocha, which is only seasonal, they better bring it out soon. In the meantime I enjoy, Mocha Truffle and White Chocolate Lattes.

I get them made with nonfat milk and no whipped cream to help bring the fat and calorie content down.

Daddy's Last Softball Game of the Season

We put shoes on him for the first time, he loved them

Eating his shoe!

Daddy in the dugout


I told Jeff to pick up something sweet at Costco yesterday, he came home with a dozen muffins, half pumpkin streusal and the other half double chocolate. They are very delicious, but they are not helping me lose any weight!! These muffins are the size of my head and must be 1000 calories each. I had a pumpkin one for dessert last night and got a belly ache from it. I've decided that as of today I'm swearing off any sweets until my grandpa's 90th birthday party on November 8th. Think I will make it??

I have zero faith in myself since I'm a major sweet tooth.

Baby Clothes

I swore I wouldn't become a "Baby Clothes Junkie", but I became one. Davis has more clothes than Jeff and I put together. I just cannot resist they itty bitty cuteness of some of the outfits. Here is one of my favorites, he is a month old here and this outfit wouldn't even fit his leg now!

This is another one of my favorites, he was 2 months old in this one. He looks so good in yellow.

Some of his outfits I loved so much that I bought them in 18 and 24 month sizes for next summer!!! They better fit because if they don't I might cry.

What Is Your Favorite Baby Age??

I've really only experienced from newborn until now (7 months), but I love, love, love the stage he is in right now. His hilarious personality really started coming out around 5 months but it is in full force right now. He is so much fun, sometimes I sit around waiting for him to wake up from a nap just so we can play. He loves everything, he loves people, he loves to laugh, he loves to be tickled, he loves to play, he loves to watch TV when mommy lets him, he loves being outside, he loves shopping, he loves the store, he loves his bath, he loves to eat, he loves his doggie, he loves going on his daily walk, he is just so happy all the time. I cannot wait to see what else this little guy starts doing in the months to come. It is just amazing how they go from that little, sleepy newborn to this in a matter of months. I'm not even sure how or when we got to this point sometimes. One day I woke up and had a tiny little man with a personality.

To sum Davis up in one word it would be, SILLY!

What I Miss and Don't Miss about Working

What I Miss

1. Office gossip - oh boy did we have some gossip flying around the old office
2. Adult conversation
3. Drinking coffee at my desk every morning
4. Money!!! $$$$
5. Stinky old farmers and construction guys
6. Toothless truck drivers
7. Foreigners
8. Traveling
9. The girls
10. Peter, my boss

What I Don't Miss

1. Deadlines
2. The idiots on the phone, especially the callers during the Florida auction
3. Foreigners (sorry if you are foreign and you read my blog)
4. Stinky old farmers and construction guys
5. Toothless truck drivers
6. Traveling
7. Rush hour traffic

Do you like how the toothless truck drivers, stinky old farmers and construction guys, traveling and foreigners made both lists?? It was a love/hate relationship with all three.

7 Months Old!!

Davis turned 7 months old on October 20!! Oh how the time has flown by in the blink of an eye. He is now 5 months away from being a year old (what???)

Cake Balls!!!

I made cake balls earlier in the week. I've been wanting to make them ever since I discovered Bakerella but never had a reason until now. These are going to be my new signature dessert for the holidays. They were easy to make and oh so yummy!!!!

Here is a picture I took of the final product:

Sneak Peek of Davis' 6 month Pictures and Family Pictures

Our awesome photographer Emy Zolg of JEM Photography took some amazing pictures they are on her blog, Moments By Jem.

You have to scroll down a few posts, it is titled "Davis 6 month and Barror Family"

I cannot wait to see the rest.

Busy Weekend!!!

Friday afternoon we had Davis' 6 month in studio photo shoot, it was awesome!! Then Saturday we had our family photo shoot at Wildwood Park. Both shoots were with the wonderful Emy Zolg of JEM Photography. We love Emy, not only is she the sweetest person I've ever met, but she is an incredible photographer. I cannot wait to see the pictures :o) I'll post links to them once she has them ready.

After our photo shoot on Saturday Jeff and I took D-money over to The University of Toledo to walk around campus, it was homecoming weekend and the weather was perfect. Davis slept the entire time because he was exhausted from all the baby modeling he was doing earlier. Then we stopped at Arby's for dinner, not very healthy, not very nice (we were supposed to go out and celebrate our anniversary), but it was still good. Maybe next weekend we can celebrate with a nice dinner out. We were just too tired after our busy day Saturday.

Sunday I started baking something special for a little homeade gift exchange I'm doing with a few wonderful ladies, I cannot wait to post pictures, but I have to wait until after the exchange so my secret person doesn't accidentally see what I've made.

Thousands of dollars worth of baby gear and he is obsessed with a $2 laundry basket

First Time Mom Blinders

Yes, there are such a thing. The moment you see that positive on the pregnancy test your head becomes filled with puppies and rainbows. The next 9 months are so exciting, picking out stuff for the nursery, registering for gifts, having your shower, imagining life with you, your husband and the new baby, seeing the baby on the ultrasound machine for the first time, thinking that your body will go back to it's pre-pregnancy self in a matter of weeks after giving birth, aaaaah, life is going to be so grand. See this clip from Desperate Houswives for the rest, it is so funny, sad and yet so true.
