Blaise chilling in the laundry basket.
An impromptu trip to see my parents + siblings (as well as my in-laws) kind of threw this whole week for a loop, at least on the blog. It was a much needed trip for my sanity, and as David is plugging away in the world of his Master's, it provided him with some uninterrupted study time. So, sorry for the lack of posting this week. I had good intentions, but posts are ever so much harder to keep up with via the Ipod. For now, enjoy the week's wrap-up, more visual memories will come tomorrow, and next week, I'll try to stay on the ball. =)

"No Blaise! This is *my* cheesestick. Don't look at it. You cannot have these yet." I understand his reasoning, but perhaps we need to work on his gentleness in speech...
"Hey Mama, I had a strawberry burp!" Yup, his little-boyness is setting in strong.
After tons of pool fun.

Nursing mamas, this one is for you. Bamboobies is giving away pairs of their nursing pads (which are awesome, by the way) for 1¢ + $3.95 S+H. They are my most used pads right now and come highly recommended. Available through August 7th or as long as supplies last.
