I'm planning on making 2 puzzle bags. One will be for his train puzzle so I'll have to make a train to put on the front and the other will be for his farm animal puzzle. I have to decide whether to use a zipper or a snap though. David is getting pretty good with the zippers but the pieces aren't small enough to really warrant that. The snap may just be easer all around. Or I cold do a button with a small loop to go around it so he could learn a new skill and I'm thinking it would be the easiest.
Like this but I would have the top flap actually fold over so the pieces couldn't fall out:
Then in the evening David and I will get to do some baking. A couple practice runs for some desserts I want to take to Easter dinner. I was going to do the dry run last night and even got all of the supplies except the most crucial which was cake mix...I frustrate myself sometimes.
Hope everyone has a great weekend and I'll post pictures once I actually make something!

I hate, and I do mean hate, all of the toilet paper dust that ends up on the chrome toilet paper holder. Everytime I go to reach for the toilet paper I find myself staring at the dust and being pissed off by the fact that it's there. I keep wiping it off and it keeps coming back.
Growing up I don't remember ever noticing toilet paper dust. Is it because we have triple thick toilet paper now or maybe you can see the dust on silver more than brass...hmm...the sad things I ponder.

David had swim lessons Saturday morning and this kid is a fish! He wanted to swim right out of Dan's arms every chance he got. He "jumped" (read:fell) into the pool by himself with a catch from Daddy twice and loved getting thrown up in the air and dunked under the water. I didn't take any pictures or video since I can't stand being "that mom".
I went to Kelly's bridal shower in DC Saturday afternoon. Had a blast! The food, drinks and company were all wonderful - lots of laughs and makes me even more excited for her beautiful wedding in only a few weeks. Although it is a strapless, leg showing dress so I need to start working out to tone up some. We'll see if that happens!
Dan spent the weekend working on vehicles again and had me shining his wheels prior to him washing his truck. Seriously? Poor planning on his part. The show season is coming up so I guess the last minute hustle is upon us. The first show is Back to the Beach on April 30th.
On a more somber note, a friend of ours was in a car accident Sunday morning. Please keep him in your thoughts for a speedy recovery, he is going to have a long, painful road ahead of him.

What a difference a year makes :(
David is doing well, he's 21 months old now and a nonstop ball of energy. We have changed daycares twice in the last year. His first daycare provider had to move to Preston (30 min. the wrong way) and the second provider was just bad. We are now taking him to a daycare in Cloverfields and he adores it there. David thrives on being outside and he definitely gets it! If it is nice outside they don't come in except to take naps. There are kids in his age range (which he didn't get at the second provider) some younger, some older, some girls, some boys and it has been really good for him. We definitely miss going to Ms. Donna's though but we have gotten together a couple of times and plan on getting together again soon. It doesn't take long for him to remember who she is and jump in her lap :)
David started swim lessons last weekend in Severna Park. We did the same class last year when we was only 9 months old just to get him accustomed to the water since Dan's parents have a pool. He loves the water! Since last year he has learned how to put his mouth under water and not breathe in water, blow bubbles, and doggy paddle with his arms. The feet are still a no-go but I'm sure he'll figure it out soon.
Dan has started back at the gym. He's been going almost every night and has gotten Bobby to start going with him since the other guys that were supposed to be going have since backed out. He has already lost >5 lbs (the real number escapes me)!!
I bought a sewing machine with the gift cards I got for Christmas. I actually haven't had the opportunity to pull it out in a few weeks but prior to that I made a couple personalized burp clothes, a sleep sack for David, a MT Carrier and matching bag, and a pillow for David's big boy bed. The next project is going to be puzzle bags since I'm tired of searching for the pieces at the bottom of the toy box!
Hopefully this post will turn over a new leaf and cause me to post again soon!
