Full of Words Wednesday - It's Been Awhile

It's been a good week and a half since I blogged about anything, but honestly there just really hasn't been enough timeTime is one of those things that becomes increasingly valuable the more you have going on in your life.  I vaguely remember the days when I had all the time in the world {pre wife and mommy days}, but now I feel like as soon as I get home from work, I go 90 to nothing until bedtime (which is usually far too late because I am trying to soak in all the me time I can get).  Oh to have the time to do all the things I love to do - photography, quilting, blogging...I would even flippin'clean!  During the week, I do all these things around 8:30 after Christian has gone to bed.  I've attempted sewing while he was awake and it never goes smoothly.  He loves to pull my fabrics out onto the floor then lay on top of them....I think it's his way of say, "HEY, this is my time!!! This can wait!"  And he would be right.  Since he's at daycare the first half of the day, I only feel most of my time after work should be spent hangin' out with my kiddo and husband. 

OK, there is my blurb about wishing I had more free time - I know I'm not alone in this. Now on to a super belated weekend update. 

One of my close friends {Helra} birthday was yesterday, so over the weekend Christian decided to make her a birthday card.  We gated ourselves in the kitchen, stripped him down to his diaper, and let him go crazy with some fingerpaints.  Here is....

Fingerpainting Gone Wild

I'm just glad this stuff is non-toxic because the first thing he did was taste it. 

He's sort of fascinated by his nipples.  If they are exposed, he's pressing on them... Light switches, keyboards, anything he can press he's obsessed with...his nipples fall into this's like a body button.

Ha!  I thought this was super cute. It took awhile to get that on his back because it tickled him so much.

...the moment he realized he was covered in paint, lol.  I think he's trying to wipe it off his diaper in the 2nd photo.  In the 3rd photo he's sucking in his baby gut.  Matt taught him this.  He'll say, "Christian suck it in for the ladies!!"

What's a little fingerpainting without your light saber??  The 2nd photo is my favorite.  I stripped his diaper off to give him a bath...he walks over to the oven and leans on it to stare at his boy parts, LOL.  And so begins the obsession that never dies for the male species.  Oh and he's carrying around my face lotion...why?  I don't know, he's been carrying it around for the last few days.  He likes tubes. He still carries around his butt paste from time to time. 

Oh, I also tried some new wine.

 The store owner recommended it, since I normally get the Asti.  Very tastey!

*Disclaimer - no wine drinking was done while fingerpainting with my child.  Just to clear up any speculations :)

Omg...Totes adorable with the finger painting! I just bought some the other day but haven't let the Chitlin go crazy w/them yet.

You're a brave mama with the fingerpainting -- wish I had done more of that with Henry. :) And we were just talking about this issue at our Modern Quilt Guild Tuesday night -- our solution was why do we not even just sit down, if only for 5 or 10 minutes at a time here and there, because that's 5 or 10 minutes more than we would've been quilting or whatever. So I'm going to start doing even just tiny amounts here and there because progress is progress!

Those pictures of the finger painting are just great! It reminds me of the pictures i took of my son ethan while coloring eggs when he was 8 months.
