Crazy (bad-picture-taking) Aunt Darcy

Thanks for all the opinions on gmail. =) I may just have to take the plunge. We'll see.. if you get a mass email from me to change it, then I've bit the bullet and changed the ol' email account... Captain Obvious here.

I went to see my cutie-head baby nephew last night and man that kid is cute! I realized that:

#1. I need to see him more often cuz when I walked in, he didn't know me. =( I'm a horrible, horrible aunt. I live 5 miles away.

#2. The kid is so funny when he's filling his pantalones. Yes, I took a picture of him grunting and pushing. Why? Because I am crazy aunt Darcy and take 297 picture of him every time I see him. Even pictures of him pooping. Yes, I think bathroom humor is funny. I hang out with high school girls, remember? I'm convinced they are worse than boys.

#3. He's learning. The kid only has a reverse button on his crawling. He crawls backwards, rolls to a sit and then claps for himself because he knows he did something good. Gets a laugh out of me every time!

#4. I need to take a photography class because I take the worst pictures. Or maybe he's just getting sick of me taking pictures? ---->



#7. Obviously bad-picture taking is hereditary cuz my brother didn't take a good picture either. Kinda blurry, but I am scrapping it regardless. And yes, he is stripped down to his diaper cuz he had gone through 3 outfits in one day. The boy's bathrooms skills are in the 95th percentile for his age! So proud!


#6. Oh my gosh, how could you not love this kid? Even with his gross-baby-food-filled mouth open.. baby Jett is the cutest!



Okay, those are all the things I've been thinking about since my visit last night. And.. man, that kid needs a cousin!! Denise, get on that. =) Gosh, I've mentioned my sis in the past 3 blogs. Prolly cuz I miss her!!!

Get to leave early today for the big ol gymnastics Regional meet!!! Yeah!! This is such a fun meet to watch because all the teams are so good. Tonight we'll spend the night at a hotel and I'm sure I'll have more stories about my crazy girls. But my crazy gymnast stories are coming to an end because tonight is our last meet. Bummer. Gosh, what am I gunna blog about now? My pantalones filling nephew, Bailey the fat cat and my hubby's sexy knees? Okay, I won't cancel my blog account.

Haven't posted this LO yet for pops to see. It's a "me" page.. something I gotta do more of because I would have LOVED to see what my mom thought of herself when she was my age. So even though sometimes they are hard to do and I feel guilty about not scrapping other events, I will appreciate them later. And of course I get to use pink and make them totally girly.

ETA: Just noticed that I went from #4 to #7 and then to #6. Completely out of order and no #5. Seriously, this is how my brain works. You guys are seriously doubting that Purdue degree, aren't you? What can I say? I was a Hospitality major and my favorite class was Horticulture 250.. Flower Arranging. The best, most useful class I ever took. Seriously.

I'm not doubting your Purdue degree. Don't they hand those out to anyone? Just kidding. Like your page about you...makes me think I need to do more of those. I keep thinking I will, but it's kind of hard.

Missy said...

ahhh darcy! I love that page... and I totally understand about not seeing the nephew/nieces enough... AND the phot skills! I need some help too :)

Elizabeth said...

i would agree on that pu degree. especially if you're instate..
if you can breathe.. you get a BA!!
its world experience and further education that will teach you your numbers!!
yes, jett is a cutie. don't feel bad about the potty picts.
We have a ton of Brig.. so gross, and the pics of them with poo up to their neck(literally).. and yet they still smile!(and whats worse, is mom and dad take pics of this!)
future blackmail.. i think!
just wait til he gets ahold of solid foods!

I love your brain. It's spuratic thoughts keep me guessing, and I know that I have to pay close attention or I may miss a jump in the conversation. YOu are so fun.
I really like the LO of you. I think that is a great idea and a really cool way to express a little about yourself. Very cool Darcy. and a very nice pic of yourself. You look beautiful there..well everywhere, but there too.

maybe you have your camera on the wrong setting. sometimes my digital gets bumped out of the auto setting and the pics turn out that way. just a thought! :-)
