attempting to style photos (if i can call it that) with a little assistant around can be a pretty
impossible hilarious task. you have no idea how many of my blog pics have his little paws in them. benji spied these fruity sweets and marched right over and swiped 'em in the midst of his favorite morning cartoons. a bowl o' cheerios and something sweet for breakfast; sounds all too familiar.
one of my favorite things about valentine's is spreading the love via the mailbox. as is tradition, benji and i did some simple valentining together. i printed the hanging hearts template and he fingerpainted it with crayola watercolors. i cut the hearts out while he continued painting the tablecloth. (luckily we use an old holiday tablecloth made from oilcloth which is super perfect for wiping up spills–or picasso paintings–from arts and crafts projects.)
benji also spotted the cherry hearts in the bulk bins at our grocery store (my favorite aisle, as you know) and when he remembers them, he always requests two. two hearts. two is a very big number around here. i have so much to say about him these days, a devoted post is in the works.
see last year's robots and benji's baby foot prints.
and just look how tiny he once was.
p.s. after baking cupcakes, sugar cookies, mint brownies (fancied up with pink filling and sprinkles on top) and eyeing heart-shaped candies all week long, dan and i are going on a serious no-sweets-around-here-anymore mission after monday. wish us luck.
