My Happy Place- Part I

I thought I'd put some Happy Place pictures out.

Its not that I'm in a bad place. No. I'm doing better as things start to gel, but the last few weeks have truly sucked sewage laden pond water.

So... some pictures of places I go in my head... throughout the week, more than likely.

Tonight's post will be about my niece, who is so smoochilious, it scares me to love someone so much.

I call this one, "Dumb and Dumber" as she has that dumb baby look that babies have when they have yet to acquire expression and I am overcompensating to express for both of us.

(Side note to Morrigan: I got that shirt in 1992.)

This is my schmoopy niece on the quilt that I made her. I love this picture.

Think... when was the last time any of us ever slept like that? When was the last time any of us just laid like that for a couple minutes and then were capable of unwrapping our bodies and still walk without pain?

No, I was not dropping acid when I created this quilt. I was trying to think of something colorful and fun and you can't tell, but the circles are fuzzy on the edges, so its got a 3D effect, which is great until she pukes on it.

Who sleeps like this?

Who?

If we slept like that, we'd all have to get a prescription for a muscle relaxant or we'd all be walking around as some pathetic imitation of the HunchBack except we'd be the HunchNecks.

And then we come with the most current set that left me doing the big *BLINK*.

First, no clue what she's sitting in. I think my brother got her this as he has a buddy whose baby sits in one. Its this little funky chair for the little people.

She is actually focusing now, but you can't really tell by this picture. She's a little chunk of love in this picture.

And lastly, what in the hell is she wearing on her head? Is she a bunny? A lamb?

A fool?

Good Grief. I can't quit laughing.

Oh and here's a picture of the Bunny Lamb yawning.

And so end's tonight's version of "My Happy Place"

she is cute, my sadness is I was a grandfather before I became an uncle (long story)...

Now I am going into my Bou mode as I was told the other day my only daughter is having a new arrival in oct. We are hoping for a girl to go with the 2 boys...

I sent this video to my daughter to remind her of how much energy babies have...

LOVE HER! And I don't think they had the bumbo chairs when my guy was tiny. I wish they had. Kids love those things.

Jerry- If she already has two boys... count on three! Just the voice of experience. :) Oh I love babies. How exciting!!! Oh and that video is a riot!

Dammitwoman- I have thought that when my boys leave home that maybe I can find some place that will let me love babies. I am hearing that some hospitals have volunteers to go into the baby units and just slowly rock the babies that are sick. I could do that... I'd LOVE to do that.

Oddy- Yes! Its a bumbo chair! What a riot.

Mrs. Who- Me too. I miss the smell, the sweetness, the baby noises.

Richmond- You're welcome. Good Grief she is yummy.

BTW, those are lamb ears, or so I've been told.

I think I remember commenting on how much I love that babies can scrunch like that when they sleep - it's so so cute.

I've never seen one of those chairs before... it wouldn't have worked for my kids. My daughter was in an orthopedic brace for dislocated hips at that age. I think she was a bit older (4 months) before they let her leave it off during the day time. She couldn't sit in it. My son would've made mincemeat of that chair in nothing flat. LOL. He was about twice her size.

Those are wonderful pics.
