Good news is with all of this naked time he sat up all by himself and rolled over from front to back today. Of course it's the day my batteries are dead on my camera. I'll take pictures tomorrow..
My parents stopped by tonight without all of the kids. They dropped my sister off at the airport and then decided to come and see Joseph (I don't even lie to myself and pretend they are coming to see me). We had a great dinner, I seasoned pork ribs last night and Mike threw them in the oven before he left for work(fall off the bone good), sweet potato casserole and a salad.
Grandma gave Joseph a bath before she left. He was soo happy just crawling all over her and standing on her naked. I swear I'm raising a nudist!
I pulled out my swift tonight and frogged my bff socks. I think I just hate cables. I love how they look but just don't want to work on it. I re skeined the yarn(pain in the ass using a swift) and it is soaking in the sink right now getting the kinks out.
I'm working on a Curly Purly soaker and my Mom's sweater right now and have a shawl and the ribbing of a modified Bird in Hand mitten hibernating. I cast on for a Spring Beret that I wanted to raffle off but I'm just not loving it. I love cotton for dishcloths but hate it for hats. I need to rethink it.
I have two balls of the new Mini Mochi maybe I should make it into that adorable mitten pattern that just came out and raffle that instead? Hmmm?
I think I'll make the purless monkey sock for my next sock project.
*I'm gonna go knit instead of link anything..sorry!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
Where did the week go? Well here goes...
* I most definitely did not only get out of my pajamas twice this week. Once to go grocery shopping and out to eat and then to go to Downtown Mardi Gras.
* I do not keep checking http://www.thegoodmama.com/ to see what new diapers they have listed. We do not have more diapers that we could go through in a week and I do not keep making myself repeat "we do not need anymore diapers". (is there anyway to block a website from yourself?)
* I did not get up on my soap box and send a friend a really nice because I care myspace message with the link to the little boy that was killed because he wasn't in a car seat message because she pulled up at my parents house with her itty bitty 7 yr old in the FRONT seat NOT belted in at all!
* There is no way I um had relations with my dear husband and then had some really strong signs of ovulation that evening. Babies 14 months apart would be crazy! (It took years to get Joseph and two rounds of Clomid so I'm really not holding my breath)
* I did not eat a whole Valentine's box of chocolate in three days even though I said that I don't want/like chocolate.
*I did not give my almost 5 month old a banana in his mesh feeder so that I could eat dinner in peace and I would never laugh at him when he got mad that I took it away.
* I did not take sneaky pictures of everyone when I got out of the bath. My baths are so short that no one would have time to do this.
* I did not prop Joseph up in the corner of the couch and then take a picture of him watching the Oscars just to put it on facebook.
Until next week...
They had a stage set up with a band.
This was taken right before the sun went down. I think I got made fun of for taking pictures, Oh well..
We had a great lazy weekend. I really need to write up a Not Me Monday post for tomorrow so check back soon for that!

I have a load of diapers going right now. I washed, dried and then put our rugs down on a freshly vacuumed floor. Between me and the wienies I really need to vacuum three times a week but probably only do it twice a week. I know once Joseph starts getting mobile that will have to end. We have stained concrete floors and one big rug so I just use a stick vacuum, I have to empty it out a few times because it gets full of hair but so much easier than pulling the big vacuum out.
We installed Joseph's new car seat last weekend. After buying and returning the True Fit we went with the Britax Boulevard CS. We love it! I got a little weepy putting his Snug Ride in storage. I'm hoping that in the next few years we will get to use it again but if not I'll pass it down to a family member. I keep teasing my sister that Joseph is asking for cousins. Maybe he will get his wish.
I thought it was really cute at dinner on Wednesday the server(English was not his first language) asked us if this was our first and if we were excited(ok that was kinda odd). We said of yes and of course, he's the best ever! So then he asked something like so do you want a little girl(okay odd again)? I said I would love another little boy and Mike popped in with well maybe three or four more. I think Mike has had a harder time adjusting to having a baby and then with me being home with Joseph all day I sometimes wonder how much he enjoys Joseph and being a Dad. So I thought it was neat that he said he would like a few more. I'm not sure about being pregnant that many more times as that was really hard on me. I have no idea how my Mom did it. She had the nine of us and was pregnant another two times besides that.
Mike put up Joseph's shelves in his room last night. I bought him a few books the last time I was out, my sister gave him a few for Valentine's day and last weekend I picked through all the books at my parents and pull then ones out that had my name on them. The shelves look really good. I put a few of his toys up there that he is still to little for. Very cute! Funny thing is that he sleeps in the loft bedroom with us.
Joseph is working so hard at sitting up by himself. As sad as I am about him growing up he is getting to be sooo much fun. He giggle when I say I'm gonna get him. He is very ticklish!
My Mom is coming in the morning to visit, she is bringing donuts and is picking up wienie food at Costco for me. So I better get to bed.

*I did not want to strangle Jack yesterday when learning it was his bath time he ran to the middle of my livingroom and proceeded to pee on this(that was on the floor because we were doing tummy time). My dogs are all very well behaved and would never do that!
*On the subject of dogs. My girls would never get in such a fight that one of them would reach up and bite Mike way too close to the valuables! Never! It did not draw blood and I did not laugh, not even a little.
*I did not think for a minute that when my Dad asked me to watch my two youngest sister yeah four more arms to hold Joseph and just maybe I would get to take a bath without Mike sitting in the bathroom with Joseph or it being 3am.
*When we got home from Walmart my sister did not tell me that my neighbor was home and then say shocked "and he's in his underwear" ala Friends- ugly naked guy. Except uh, not ugly.
*It's my job to cook tasty, nutritional meals while Mike works his butt of to buy diapers uh pay bills and I most definitely did not feed him and my sister some very oddly seasoned chicken legs Saturday.
Until next week.

Joseph is 330 minutes old here. We had been in our room about 150 minutes. My Mom is holding him and Jessica took the picture. Jessica had been at the hospital the night before while I was in labor but had to leave because she had to work the next morning, she ended up working really short shifts for the next few days. So this was the first time she saw him. I'm really thankful she had her camera, I have quite a few pictures from that morning but it is nice to have even more.

This is my first week participating in Not me Monday. I've been following My Charming Kids for a few weeks now and she makes everything look like so much fun so here we go..
I did not spend almost 300$ on more cloth diapers, hit up the yarn store and go to Ikea even though our income tax check is being held hostage until Monday at H&R block..
I did not get grossed out when Mike told me the guy behind me at dinner took his dentures out and LICKED them... My god! I know we were not(really) at a 5 star restaurant but that should just be saved for when you are alone...
I did not give in and give Emory a super short hair do..Her ears do not look like a cocker spaniels...
I did not talk Mike into taking Joseph and my sisters to the bowling ally by himself so that I could take a long bath...
I'm sure I have plenty more things I didn't do this week but I think I am not going to sneak away and take a long bath with Harry Potter...
On a serious note... This family went through what I think is the worst thing that could happen to someone, they lost little Cora.. Please go leave them a little love.

We had a great day today. I have the best baby ever. He sleep! As in we don't get out of bed until noon! Last night I seasoned a rack of ribs and wrapped them in foil/stuck them on a raised edge cookie sheet and put them in the refrigerator so that this morning Mike could put them in the stove on low(I have the best stove..it has the option to set it where it comes on by its self later..so beats my stove in Irving that you had to set everything you cooked to the right so it didn't burn and then turn it half way so that it kinda cooked even). They cooked all day and then I made a batch of au gratin potatoes and some steamed snow peas. It was sooo good. Tomorrow is grocery day and that means we get to eat out! I think I want Mexican, nothing new there! I'm gonna go make me a snack and then go get back in bed beside Joseph and read a bit. I started the Harry Potter books the first of this month and I'm already on the 5th. I really like them so far, I just wish they were lighter. My main reading time is in the bath and nursing in bed and it really makes my arms ache to hold that big paper back book up for hours! Night!

I found a wonderful lady on Ravelry that was selling part of her stash so that she could buy more(and the muggles think we are crazy..lol). Worked great because I love what she didn't want anymore:) Thanks Sue!
Most of the lys in the Dallas area had X-mas sales. Mike very nicely dropped me off at the door of the Shabby Sheep in Uptown for that one(not too crazy and for some reason not many people were grabbing sock yarn:0).. After that and then a stop by our favorite cafe Lucky's we decided to go the the Knitting Nook in NRH even though their sale wasn't until the next week. The ladies running the shop were lovely and they had a great selection.
Hands down the most fun was, some how I talked my friend Cindy into getting to my house by 3AM(she had to be up by 2AM!) so that we could make it to the Woolie Ewes annual sale...Woo hooo... We got in line by 4:15 and only had about 10 people ahead of us! It was FREEZING but we toughed it out... It was sooooo crazy but we both got what we came for:) So here is my haul for December...
So for 2008~ more fuzzy feet, lots of Bird in Hand Mittens and The CPH!
