No More Phone Pictures!

OK, no more phone pictures!  I switched my data from a Samsung Galaxy III to an iphone and POOF! there go my blogpost pictures that were uploaded from my phone.  I found out in January that this would happen, but I kept uploading mobile blogger posts anyway.  Nuts!  I am not going to go back and try to recreate them, but I can say that from now on, my blogpost pics will be the good old-fashioned digital camera uploads that are sent from my trusty hard drive :o)

I'm posting today to show off my "Walt's Tropical Oasis" on HGTV's rate my space:

Tropical Nursery Decor

Baby Photo Shoot

Walter graciously posed for picture after picture in the nursery today!  This photo was taken with my Samsung Galaxy II camera phone.  I prefer my Canon Powershot, but blogging is so simple with my phone.  I will be purchasing a FUJI "toy" camera that prints business card sized instant pictures.  I just haven't decided which color yet.

Joovy Zoom 360 Stroller review

I know my last post was also about this stroller, but I just can't say enough positive things about it!  The cargo basket at the bottom is big enough for a diaper bag, small cooler, and a swim ring for the pool.  The double cup holders are very deep and stretchy like a koozie, so you can cram a big bottle of water or gatorade no problem.  There is a zipper pocket in the middle where I keep my phone and keys along with teething toys, etc.  Did I mention the entire beverage caddy is removable with these awesome velco straps on all 4 corners?  I fasten my small dog's leash handkerchief to one of them and it stays secure so it's like handsfree dog leash!  The big red brake pedal is excellent quality and extremely easy to operate.  The best feature on the JOOVY Zoom 360 jogging stroller is the amazing canopy.  No matter where the sun is, I can position it to cover my baby's face.  It's only a matter of reclining or raising the seat when the sun is very low in the sky.

Love the JOOVY 360 Jogging Stroller

This stroller is simply perfection.  Walter loves going for his walks, and to be honest this stroller makes sweating in the hot Texas summer heat enjoyable for me too!  I am by no means a serious jogger or runner, but I do like a brisk walk in the mornings.  This stroller features a 360° swivel on the front wheel and very handy drink and toy caddy.  It comes with a rain cover and tire pump.  I have been using it for about 3 months and no need to fill the tires yet.  It was super easy to put together.  I did it all by myself in 15 minutes or less.  I give it 5 stars and highly recommend to anyone with a baby 15 lbs or more.

My Little Rascal

"The WaWa" is now 9 months 3 weeks old and getting into everything!  The official babyproofing is long overdue.  We will install all the drawer, cabinet, door and toilet latches this week.  I have a new invention that I will be crafting for your enjoyment in the coming days as well.  I am going to try my hand at video production or vlogging as I think it's called.  Stay tuned!

It's January 24th, at least it is in this picture. It's actually June, and Walter is almost 10 months old! He is about to walk soon, I think. I haven't had much time for the blog while raising my baby, but I wanted to redirect some of my readers on over to the other blog: Off the Grid, Texas

Happy New Year!

Happy 2012! We went out for a walk for the new year after eating all our black-eyed peas and cabbage. It was beautiful, and Walter just loves it so much. I will be working on the giveaway paintings this week. Soon, I will have a few craft projects coming up such as a DIY plush toy. So fun!
