WAH-WAH, WAH-WAHHHHH-WAH, WAHHHHHH

as i type, brandon is lovingly tossing our shizz into boxes, the huckster is sleeping off his epic birthday party from this morning with his baby friends, and i am formulating a complex packing and unpacking strategy that i just know will prove to be entirely pointless. 

we found out on quite last minute that we could finally move in, but we were so ready to go that it hardly seems an inconvenience. we'll be packing and moving and unpacking for a couple of days. in the meantime, here are a few photos from huck's birthday costume party.

huck went as charlie brown, and i went as his mother.


(thanks again janelle for letting us use your pad so last minute!)

and just for fun, here's a suuuuuper high quality video of huck's super rad peg leg crawl. it is awesome.

  3. Oh man, this makes me want to throw epic birthday parties. Like, I want to be the cool mom who bakes a cake from scratch and has themes and what not and dresses her baby up as Charlie Brown. But I mean, how does one even GET that cool? I'm not sure it's even possible for anyone who doesn't live in NYC. Or for anyone who doesn't have a cute chubby little baby to call their own. Like me. Ah well, I guess I'll content myself with school for now.

  8. Good grief! You know what this means? If Huck is a year old, that means it's nearly a year since I commented on here. I'm a bad follower! I swear I've read every post though!
    So happy birthday for yesterday Henry. Congratulations to you all, you have had quite the year and this is a big milestone. Believe it or not, it gets more fun from here on. Toddlers are awesome!
    Happy moving, can't wait for transmissions from the new digs. (So glad you are resurrecting nat's nest too!).

  10. Oh my gosh, I'm dying at that video! Maybe with more room to crawl around in the new place, he'll start using both legs? I secretly hope not though, cuz that's just dang adorable.

    Good luck with the move! I'll keep my fingers crossed that you guys don't get hit with the snow that's supposed to be coming...

  12. I heard a weird strategy for moving on the radio today: take a picture of everything in the boxes before you close it and tape the picture to the top. That way you know where everything is before you unpack... Now the whole printing pictures thing would take forever and waste time I think, but you could number the boxes and name the pics on your phone with the numbers... Good luck with your moving!

  16. You must mean "drivel."

    ReplyDelete
  17. @Rebecca-- oh no, I meant dribble. As in "these words which dribble wittily from my fingers." Anyway, I think "drivel" isn't supposed to be witty, by definition, and CLEARLY my dribble was QUITE witty ;).
