Arts and crafts with a 2 year old

Ava got bored painting the paper and decided painting herself into a dinosaur was a better idea. I agree.

Benjamin Franklin unplugged

I was sitting on my comfy couch talking to my comfy husband when he randomly remembered something about Benjamin Franklin taking "air baths". Apparently, good old Ben used to take a really hot bath and then sit, completely naked, in front of an open window for 30 minutes to an hour while he wrote and thought. Um? How awkward was that for anyone walking by? He claimed that it was good for his health.

So when my kid runs around for 3/4 of the day naked (after I've dressed her several times) I am now going to tell myself that she's just taking an air bath and that she will be a genius like Ben because of it.

I will also tell my neighbors this.

I am seriously such a good mom.

The babes.

Can we just talk about this one curl that is always springing off Ava's forehead?

I just love her hair. And then with the yummy cheeks and soft skin and the big eyes? GUH. She is delicious.
