The Adventure Starts Here: 5 on Friday

5 on Friday


Chris picked up these super adorable bath toys at Walmart the other day.  He said there was another one that was a stack of wrapped presents, but he liked these better.  While they are technically bath toys, Noah has had more fun playing with them out of the tub so far!  On a side note, this is why we have a hard time finding "gifts" to give for his birthday and Christmas.  As soon as we see something cute that we think Noah will like, we just give it to him!  We should probably start saving some things to wrap or put in his stocking!


The other day, I started singing "If You're Happy and You Know It" and Noah started clapping along when I said "Clap Your Hands"!  I was a proud mama and was amazed at how brilliant my baby was :)  Thankfully, it wasn't a one time thing, and I got it on a video when we did it again.  You can also see that he loves to play "Peek-a-boo"!  


I am currently taking this online photography class "Flash of Brilliance" with Candice Stringham to learn how to use an external flash.  I'm loving it so far cause now I can take pictures in low lighting!  And it couldn't have come at a better time since it's getting dark so early now!  Before, once it got dark, I avoided taking pictures with my good camera cause they never looked that great.  While I'm still learning all the tricks, my pictures are so much better.  


I just bought Noah a toddler pillow.  Yes, I know, they aren't supposed to be using a pillow at 1.  But since Noah loves sleeping in our bed and using our pillows, I thought it was worth a shot to see if it would help him sleep in his crib for longer stretches.  And I figure if he doesn't like it, I can just put it in the closet until he's older.  


I can't help but want to address my Christmas card envelopes like this.  Maybe next year, since I already printed out the boring labels with all my addresses.

I'm linking up with Darci, April, Christina and Natasha for Five on Friday!
