Overlooked #2

the subject for overlooked #2 was something that you collect. the first thing that came into my mind was my matchbook collection.
i started to collect my matchbooks about 6 years ago.
at first they were matchbooks from restaurants that my hubby and i went to. then i started to find small bags of them at thrift stores and antique shops and couldn't pass them up.
my favorite matchbooks are some that my parents gave me from K&B drug store. it was a store in NOLA that we went to a lot when we were growing up.
my most memorable matchbooks are ones that my hubby and i got from Las Vegas. we went to a lot of the casinos the got the matchbooks.
right now my matchbooks sit in two glass jars on top of my book shelf in the den.

i'm still here after being m.i.a. for a week. last week my boss went to a seminar and we had that whole week off. which was great for me because i got to spend the whole week with my little guy. it was so much fun.

we read, played, sang, went to the mall, napped, cooked, laughed and started feeding him carrots this week and he loves them. next week we are on to sweet potato's. it was a really great week.

this kid is getting bigger and bigger. i can't believe he was the 4lb baby that we brought home 6 months ago. he's now probably 14lbs. we'll find out on thursday when the exact weight is.

there isn't many times that i see the preemie in him but for some reason this week he decided to wake up two nights in a row, in the middle of the night. so after trying to get him back to sleep and failing i went and made him a bottle. while i was feeding him and looking down into his beautiful face and shadows in the room were cast on his face and he looked like the tiny baby that we brought home and i just remembered back to those days and smiled.

Favorite Foto Friday

i use to post these (FFF's) when i first started to blog and after seeing my friends amber and sam doing them i thought that maybe i should start again too. so here is my first one in a while. this is one of little guy's six month pictures that i took of him. i just love how serious he is. he is now seven months old. my boy is growing so fast. i can't believe that a year ago i was pregnant with him and not even really showing.

my mother in law has super spidey sences. even though she sleeps with a fan on that sounds like a wind tunnel in her room she still manages to hear the tornado sirens going off.
this is when she puts on the news and calls us at 3:37 in the morning.
we sleep with a wind tunnel in our room too, but we've lowered the noise some since having the baby, but we were so out last night that we must have thought the tornado siren was more white noise.
so at 3:37am we get up, turn on the tv, watch and wait.

my hubby is standing, arms folded probably thinking...
how cool a potential tornado
i wonder if i can go out and watch it
i would love to be a storm chaser
but i guess i'd settle for a weather man
the man is obsessed with the weather.

i'm sitting on the bed thinking...
they better give me enough warning to go grab the baby
where are we going to go in the house
i guess close all the bedroom doors and sit in the hallway
if it gets really bad we could all crawl into the hall closet (it's pretty deep)
maybe the bathtub would be better
but there's a window in there

my parents are visiting us so they were awake too.
i could see my mom sitting there thinking...
can i just go back to bed already

and my dad wakes up, goes to the bathroom, watched the weather for about five mon and says, "well if it's gonna take me, it's gonna take me." and goes back to sleep.

all of this happening and here is what little guy was doing....

babies are so sweet. i love how peaceful they can be.
well we all managed to make it back in bed at 4:00am, only to wake up again, to lightening and thunder at 4:30am, a coughing baby at 5:00am and then my alarm clock at 6:30am. sweet, sweet, sleep where are you?

praises though that there wasn't a tornado.
