Waaaay better than Gerber, and 2 videos

I want you all to know that as of late, I do realize I've been slacking. So, I thought I would surprise you all and post videos (I know...amazing). One is P playing on the floor with his fave new toy, Ziploc containers. The other is of his favorite new perch, right on the baby gate where the dogs hang out. This one has a happy ending in the diaper.

Also, tonight, I made the big man some big boy spaghetti. It sounded good to me, so I made it with rotini noodles, which I thought would be easier for him to pick up and eat. I just used a mild tomato sauce and some ground beef. It was like the kid had never eaten in his life. The sucking and grunting sound he made when a noodle hit his tougue was priceless. I really couldn't get him to look up and smile because he was too busy shoveling.

This was waaaaay better than Gerber.

No, he didn't eat that entire bowl of spaghetti, some of that was for his Mommy.

I highly recommend going with the rotini noodles for all you Momma's wanting to try spaghetti with the kiddos! It was so easy for him to pick up and put in his mouth as quickly as he possibly could :)

What has Pollard been up to?!?!

I know this will come as a shock but we've been at the beach! We went back for Labor day and had a blast. We also found this cute vintage-inspired baby boat hat in the front closet at the Henig's condo. How could I resist?

By the time he was done crawling from the beach chairs down to the water, he had said in every tiny crease of his body.

And he now crawls at the speed of light, so why not give it a go on the sand?

He got a little rashy (but everything makes him rashy), but it was no biggie. He ate so much sand, it was just out of control. Every time I would wash away the handful in his left hand, I'd turn to wipe it off and his right hand would be full of it and already in his mouth.
A little too much sand, buddy?

And why not just stick it in your ear while you're at it...
And with all this, his hair has gotten a little...unruly. Well YOU see, it look at it blowing in the wind in the beach pics above. It's uncontrollable. We even had to bobby pin it for him to eat. What a pretty little girl!

Which leads me into THIS.
His first at home haircut. Ehhh, it didn't quite turn out like we'd planned. Is it just us, or has he taken a liking to Lloyd Christmas?

But, when you sweep it to the side, he looks ADORABLE!!!
