I'm Sixteen Months Old!

Hello? Lego Calling...

I can identify six of these cards!
Fire engine, green peas, dog, fish, cow, and elephant.

Mostly-Wordless Wednesday.

A Narrow Escape.

Well, my trusty toaster oven is no more.

This morning I put some bread in to toast, turned around to give Hueston some breakfast, and heard a sizzling sound. I turned back to see smoke pouring out of the toaster from all sides, and when I got closer, I saw there were actual flames!

I quickly turned it off, unplugged it, and pulled it into the sink. My huge container of baking soda was handy, so I opened the toaster door enough to throw a few cupfuls in, which smothered the fire.

No one was injured and no other appliances or belongings damaged in this incident. :)

Now Hueston and I are enjoying a breezy day inside, with all the windows open and all the fans going full speed ahead.

Big Haircut.

We finally did it!



Hueston sure does love the hair dryer...


It's not a huge change, but it's definitely different.
You'll get plenty more opportunities to see it in days to come!

Trying to lick an acorn before Mommy notices.

Evidence of the dire hair situation. :)
