(Non-awkward) Family photos

Recently we've done quite a few family things together.  I might try and do separate blogs posts about some of them, but we'll see.  We know what a consistent, up-to-date a blogger I am... What I liked about all the different things going on is how many family pictures we've gotten.  I've realized lately that we have about 350 pictures of Charlie by himself for every one picture we have of Charlie with one of us.  We've been trying to remedy that!

Monterey Bay is always a great backdrop for photos!

Atop Garrapata... another beautiful view!

This one was a selfie.  We were trying to get a picture while Phil was in uniform. 
 Not really sure why we're all leaning left. 

On beautiful Bass Lake

Yosemite, at the Sequoia Grove.  We are standing in the trunk of a tree!

Reasons my 8 month old is crying...

I'm sure you've probably seen the site "Reasons my son is crying".  Children cry for all kinds of ridiculous (and hilarious!) reasons.  Charlie is usually a great little guy who isn't too fussy during the day, but this morning was really difficult and I sent Phil a very grumpy text after a few hours.  It went something like this...

Reasons Charlie has cried today:
He woke up
Daddy got him out of bed, not Mommy
I took him upstairs to nurse
I set him down after nursing
He fell over
I was in the kitchen making breakfast and wouldn't let him lick the kitchen floor
I didn't cut his pear fast enough
I put him back on the floor after breakfast
He was ready for a nap
I put him down for a nap
Eva barked
He woke up from his nap
I put him in his seat so I could shower
I burped him after nursing him
I set him on the floor again
I turned the hair dryer on
I turned the hair dryer off
I changed his diaper
I changed his clothes
The dog walked by him 

Blame it on teething, blame it on a tough night, blame it on something!  All I know is EVERYTHING that happened today made him cry.
