A Bowlful of Cherries

Celebrating Matty and Noah

Archive for February 2008

3 weeks into tank ownership.

Fish count:

9 alive
2 babies born (or rather, 2 babies survived?)
2 snails
2 dead

I like to pull up a chair and watch them. Matty usually joins me.
I do this more than once daily, as it’s quite soothing.

But really I’m just very nosy.

The brothers.

It’s fun when they play together.
I think Matty even recognizes some of his old baby toys.

Notice the drool?
Yep, the teething is earnest.

Keeps him busy.


The truck track set that Nana sent is QUITE popular!
The best part is when the trucks go flying.
The worst part is when Matt lays his head on the tracks and the trucks wheels’ get caught in his hair. Hee! It has happened only twice!

For my sweetheart.

My Little Face sweetheart, that is.

I made these fun (non-candy!) valentines for Matty and his schoolmates.
You can read all about them here, on my crafty blog.


The rest of the day was spent eating breakfast with Mike and Noey, relaxing and just enjoying the quiet, cold day. Birthday perfect.

Voter & future voter.

For our own Super Tuesday, Noah and I braved the frigid temps and walked up to the polling place.
After I voted (Noah whispered his choice to me), we each got stickers.
Yay for the democratic process! Yay for stickers! Yay for my favorite hat!



His hand tastes good, he tells me.

Brace yourselves people.

Because Noah?
Just as photogenic as the Mattster.
(I went a little nuts with the camera the other day.)
