Baby crawling out of the crib?

Mines just started doing that. I had to lay him down 5 times today before he finally fell asleep for nap time!!! Luckily we have a convertible crib... guess it's time to put the toddler bed side on. I don't want him falling out on his head.
Anyone else dealing with this right now? How do you get them to stay in bed at night and for naptime? I think we're going to have issues... ;)

My Happy Labor Day Weekend! Part 2

So, we had a fun day on Mon... even though it was rainy out here. We played inside with the dogs, adopted 2 new pets (2 little rat babies, girls, from a friend of mine... and we LOVE them!) Plus we made some AMAZING tea! ;)
The combo... make some sweet tea, you can use black or green, whatever your preference. Mix a good amount of tea with a bit of spiced rum, a splash pomegranate juice, and a quick drizzle of lemon juice. Add ice, and viola. Sorry for the "loose" measurements, I've found that you just need to add per your own taste, though I will warn, the pom juice is strong! Only add a little, b/c you can always add more. (I used Pom/blueberry juice, and it was amazing.) Our guests were happy, as were we, and we all had a fun time relaxing and enjoying the day off. :)
On to my little Sasha, and his fun for the day... here are a few snaps of him and the pups. (pics of the rats coming soon.)
The end, hope you enjoyed. And definitely try that tea, it is wonderful. ;)

My Happy Labor Day Weekend! Part 1

Hope everyone had a fun, safe weekend with family and friends. I sure did, and I'm so thankful! Here are a some shots of Sasha enjoying himself in the back yard Sunday afternoon.
We started off with a homemade popsicle...  Motts Medley Tropical Blend & V8 VFusion Peach Mango. Fruits and veggies all in one, and take my word for it, they were yummy! Next time I think I'll add some blueberries in too. ;)
Eating up the goodness...
Waving at the neighbors. (They were outside cooling off in the pool)
 After Sasha got all sticky from his yummy popsicle, we had some fun with the water hose!
I don't think he quite expected this to happen... haha
My little angelic face. <3
Wow, haha.

So, I figured out what he was doing here... trying to squirt me! I was squirting him by holding my thumb in the water, and that's why he kept sticking his thumb in. Silly boy! :)
My favorite Smile!
Making mud to squish his little toes in...
What a fun day with my favorite little boy! 
Check back for tomorrow's post with pics from our Labor Day fun inside. (It was rainy out here) Plus a yummy recipe for a tasty tea... adult beverage! ;)

What a Day!

Sooooo..... today has been quite the day! To start, this morning when I let the dogs out, I didn't realize the neighbors dogs were out too. Lotus ran under a hole in the fence into their yard and chased them around... while I yelled constantly for her to come back in our yard. I should have known then... ha Well, after that, I got online to check my messages, and while I was on the computer, my little angel, Sasha, found my stamp(the one I stamp packages with for my diapers and such... vistaprint stamp) He thought it would be fun to dip it into the dog water dish, and get black ink all over himself and the floor! He even stamped one of his diaper inserts... I just noticed that about an hour ago, when I went to stuff them all. There, perfectly legible on the hemp, is my hame and etsy addy. haha I had to laugh.
Well, I put Sasha down for a nap after I cleaned up all the ink. I actually took a short nap myself, which was DIVINE!!! When I woke up and went to get Sasha, I found he had taken off his diaper, and peed in the crib. In my haste to get him to sleep, I forgot to put shorts on him. Darn it.
I get Sasha dressed in a clean diaper, take off his sheet and bumper pad(which also got wet), and cleaned the mattress. Then I fix us some lunch... at least the sandwich press didn't catch fire! (knock on wood)
Upon going to clean the bathroom, I discover that Lotus got a hold of one of my nice bath towels, and chewed a hole in it! Arrrrrgggg!!!!
I've had enough of the house! I need to go mail a diaper package today anyway, so I grab a quick shower, get dressed, and head to the car with Sasha... this is where my day gets really awesome. MY CAR WON'T START!!! What?!? It worked fine yesterday. Oh boy. I call my mom, who comes to my rescue. She stays with Sasha, while I use her car to go to the PO before it closes. When I get home, I clean the battery, and hook up the jumper cables so we can get her started. I have a dinner date with my bestie this evening, and I was really looking forward to not cooking. Doesn't matter, the car still won't start. I'm going NOWHERE! My husband and my dad are both out of town right now... at least my hubbie will be here tomorrow. I called and told him what was going on. I am really hoping it was just that my mom's car battery was too small... hers is smaller than mine. I really hope hubbie's work van can jump it off... well see. We may have to buy  new battery... and hope that's the only problem. I really home that's all it is, b/c we just bought this car about 6 months ago!
THAT is why I'm drinking a Bourbon and coke right now. Yep. And Sasha continues to be in  bad mood. Wish me luck for the rest of my night!
Oh, on a positive note, here's a cute pic of Sasha with my mom... she brought him a bike toy, and tools! (He has a slight obsession with bikes lately, of the motorcycle variety.)
