I Crawl for Chocolate

Today was a delightful day of couponing, laundering (oh so much laundering), cleaning and dish washing....all pretty much stuff that has to get done before I can even start with the deep cleaning. ha. While I was working in the kitchen, I left Addison playing in the living room and watching Signing Time DVDs (does anyone else have that "Signing Time with Alex and Leah" song going around and around in their head all day long?). Within a few minutes, who's cute little head came poking through the kitchen door as she decided to investigate what Mommy was up to? She is now a lean (well, mostly lean)-mean-crawling machine. I love it.

Then later, when I was cutting coupons, she once again abandoned her toys and crawled under the table as if waiting for me to finally drop some paper her way (when one accidentally fluttered down, she pounced within seconds, eating the paper quicker than I could pull it out). When she got tired of waiting, she crawled over one foot and grabbed my slipper off of the other foot and quickly moved away to the far reaches under the table so that I wouldn't take it away from her. lol. She's developing quite the cute little personality.

I loved spending the day with my little baby. My all time favorite activity? Post nap Hulu watching in bed, cuddled up with Chubbs beside me, eating leftover Valentine Little Debbie chocolate cakes. She loved that so much. It's amazing how fast her eating skills improve when chocolate is involved. (-: After the Little Debbie was gone, she appropriately rolled over to Daddy's side of the bed, dispersing the crumbs evenly throughout his sheets. Shhhh, don't tell him. It's a little surprise Daddy, love Addison. (-:

I snapped a few pictures of her tonight after her ravioli/blueberry bread dinner. She is quite the expressive eater. You'll notice that she isn't wearing a bib- mostly because after the little Debbie incident it was a lost cause and this is pre bath. Here's a look into eating time from Chubbs' perspective:

"I would like to order some more of those chocolate cakes?"

"I know I can get pretty much whatever I want when I flash you this cute little grin."

"No? How about this smile?"
"Hmmm, didn't work. I'm going to pretend play with my spoon while I think of a new plan."

"Forget it, I'm too tired. Doesn't Mommy realize the crawling mileage I put in today? I really deserve some more chocolate.....maybe tomorrow."
And last but not least, I would just like to explain why I am unable to deep clean my entire house. The Living Room is out. My husband has turned my very brightly lit living room into a green house. There are a lot of things about my house that frustrate me and that I wish I could afford to change right now- but, I love, love, love how much sunlight comes spilling into my living room every day. It's so cheerful. So I put up with the plants....mostly because my husband said that we'll have to keep the heat nice and high for's a bummer about the cleaning though...


  1. I sing that stupid song all day long! Even my husband can be heard humming it occasionally. But I will say my daughter has picked up tons of signs so can't complain I guess!

  2. Priceless. Love that girl!! There's not much I wouldn't do for chocolate, either, Chubbs!!! lol

  3. BAHAHAHAHA! these are always my favorite posts: the Chubbs/captions ones! :):)

  4. Aww, Chubbs, you are the cutest!! Love her shirt!

  5. A girl after my own heart...there isn't much I wouldn't do for chocolate! :)

  6. I don't think I could resist that smile!! I say, give that girl some more chocolate! :)


Thanks for reading about my Everything and Nothing. I would love to hear from you!
