Good Tired

I'm tired. Sam & I play-dated today. We had so much fun, but there were puppies and baby swings and a pretty baby girl that says "nein!" (she's half German), and Sam slept hard pretty much as soon as we got in the truck! I would've liked to. But I believe The Man frowns upon sleeping and driving. Plus ordering at the Chickafila drive through would've been harder.

I guess the sun made me a little loopy, because I then brushed the grass and banana puffs off my "workout" pants and headed out to the KOKE Free Music Series. Tonight was Jason Boland and the Stragglers, and I like them a lot. And that's the most creative thing I have to say about that.

'Cause I'm good and tired. I used the very last little bit of my creative juices for the day to make this picture:

Hee. He likes playing the fiddle so much! I love how much he likes playing his fiddle! I also made this one:

I saw it on the way back to my truck. Admittedly, it would be better without the Seadoos in the background. Possibly I can edit those out. Still looks pretty cool, though. 

I'm good and tired. But it's a good tired. 

God Bless, Y'all!

Easter Pics? Me Too! Me Too!

I actually like all the Easter pictures on Facebook. Half the reason I ever get on there is to see pictures of my friends' kids. I think that means I'm part of why the kids think FB isn't cool anymore. Oh wells.

So guess what! We took Easter pictures, too! And they are better than what I thought I would get! 

I pretty much knew that there would be a lot of this: 

I call it "Sam Chewing on Something, no. 1,896,214. That necklace Gammi's wearing is 'specially designed for Sam to chew on. He likes to chew. 

But I didn't think I'd get this: 

I believe he has just realized that we're not going to take that big pile of Easter grass away from him. I love it! He has no idea why he gets presents this morning, but he is excited about it! 

We blew mannnny, many bubbles. 

We dressed up and went to church. 

But before we could go to church, Gammi, Grandma and I had to make a run to Beall's to find some pants for Sam, since I left his in Austin. Overalls turned out cuter anyway. Plus they were on some sort of super sale and they were only $4. 

And we did lots of silly things to make Sam laugh. Including playing ball in the yard with one of the balls he got from the Easter Bunny. Y'all don't all know the Deans, but playing ball in the yard is not something we normally do. Sam thought it was hilarious, though, so we did. It probably was hilarious. We didn't catch it a lot. 

On the way up we stopped at a park in Navasota that, by some oversight of what I'm sure is a robust Parks & Rec department, still had the death traps formerly known as merry-go-rounds. Sam was unimpressed with riding on one himself. (He just ate the leaves on it) But I've never heard him laugh as hard as he did watching his daddy go 'round merrily! We tried to get video, but it's a little dizzying. 

All in all, Sam likes Easter. 

Even with no candy in the eggs. 

God bless, y'all!

Sam is Grown.

He's off to college next week. He may be the only one there crawling, but he seems so old now! Here's his first month by month picture:

Look how skinny! Oh my goodness he's so cute.

And now here he is in his six month pics!

Wait - this takes a little explaining. Sam loves his yellow lamp. He wants to get it sooooo badly almost every time we sit down in that chair. His six-month photo session was no exception. He knocked everything else off the table, and then went for the lamp...with everything he's got!

Those shots are cute, but they don't show the 6 on his shirt, and I was getting nowhere with sitting him down and trying to redirect his attention. He's a very focused little boy.

So I gave him the lamp. I know - Mom of the Year. I did unplug it at least.

And just look how happy he is! I have bought that child toys. Y'all have bought that child toys! Looks like Fisher Price has missed the mark on what babies actually want. I don't think anything in the world could've made Sam happier at that moment than getting his hands on that dang lamp!

Except maybe getting it in his mouth.

That's where the photo shoot ended. Gotta draw the line somewhere.
