Friday Night Fab Five: Toot's Quiet Time

Toot turned 9 months old today!

Ever since Toot was born, I've been trying very hard not to be one of those parents. You know, the ones that can talk of nothing else but their babies. I try especially hard with my girlfriends that don't have kids. After all, I think Toot is fascinating but I know not everyone agrees (crazy people mostly). :P

However, I hope you'll indulge me as I celebrate Toot's turning 9 months old today with a Fab Five of pictures I like to call, "Toot's Quiet Time". Please note, I did not pose her in any way whatsoever, this is all Toot doing her thing! She looks so comfortable, I should try lying around like this one day...

"Ants are a delicacy...yum!"

"The doll got side control!"
*The term "side control" provided by my UFC loving hubby*

"Ducks are a delicacy too, right?...Yum!"

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..."

"Do you mind? I'm reading here!"

And there you have it! And just because it's my blog and I can post what a want to, here's a bonus Toot pic:

Isn't this picture sweet? Too bad she face planted into this thing about 15 seconds after this photo was taken...No worries, she's okay folks!

Well, that's it for this week's Friday Night Fab Five! My mom is coming over today and I'm thinking that Sleepy Poet may be getting another visit from me this week! Tomorrow is picture (by a professional) day for Toot so wish me luck and send lots of "Toot in a smiling-cooperating mood" thoughts my way! lol

I have so much more I was to talk about, including a new book I bought this morning and the fact that I've had the crap tagged out of me so I'll save those for a weekend post but until then on to some fun things!

1. If you would like to be added to my list of Christmas in July partiers (or taken off the list!) please email me at katamommy at gmail dot com.

2. Tell Traci at Sweet Cheeky Designs that I sent you and get $10 off of your blog redesign! She is also currently holding a contest to win a blog makeover and will be drawing a name on Sunday so get your butts over there for your chance to win! (And did I mention that I will be giving away a blog redesign as a present during my Christmas in July party? I didn't?! Whoops, I think that was suppose to be a secret! Muwahahahaha...)

3. GypsyFox, who created the buttons for my blog and my blog party is currently making blog buttons for F-R-E-E until Wednesday, July 15th so if you've been wanting a button for your blog or event, head on over to have her make you one for free! (She's so fabulous!)

Have a great weekend everyone!

I love her eyes, she always has this kinda mischevioius look in them!

Howdy Maggi
I love that toot she is such a delight for these old eyes.
You and she bring back so many happy memories to me each week.
I remember when I became a mom none of my friends were or planned to be.
What a shock it was to me to discover they did not share in my joy.
I guess it is a Mom thing but even as a Mom who has an almost thirty year old those sweet memories still make me smile.
I so get your trying to keep a balance but sweetie just enjoy the moment your real friends will endure or tell you to stop with the photos.
Anyhoo have a fabulous Friday night.
Happy Trails

I am totally the same way, I try not to talk about the kids too much, my friends without kids listen for so long and then they get this glazed over look and I realize it's time to stop. LOL

I LOOOOOVE all the pics, she is simply just so cute! My favorite are the ones where she's reading her little book. Way too cute!

Karyn - (French Charming) said...

Oh Maggi,

She's the sweetest thing ever! You can tell by the photos that she is quiet the character! Love the ones with her reading the cute!

My Man still lies around like Toot...only he's 52!...sigh.

You can brag about Toot anytime, I could never get enough!!!

Good luck with the photos tomorrow, I'm sure Toot will do just fine.
