Here’s my pretty boy. Isn’t he pretty? So pretty. Pretty. Yes. Ahhhh.

But sometimes he transforms into Minielvis.

Minielvis think Elmo FUH-NEE!

Minielvis also MUST have his Aquaphor while eating bananas in front of Elmo. In his jammies. But they’re totally wicked awesome snowboarding bear jammies. And they’re really soft. And COOL. Don’t forget cool. But mostly- soft.

And then we wash the Minielvis right off of him and he becomes my pretty again. Look- how graceful! His lower abs are properly tucked, his arm is poised, and his toes are pointed. And despite his unarguable nudity, his modesty is still well protected. Full Points!

So yeah- he’s pretty, he wears plastic wigs and laughs at Elmo, and he escapes from the tub now.

He’s my big boy. And he’s 16 months old.

I’ve been trying!

Why can’t I post pictures? WHY? I have the cutest pictures for you but Blogger won’t let me post them. Why? I HAVE NO FREAKIN’ CLUE! I am so irritated right now that I can hardly think. Why does this get to me so much?

I also can’t show you pictures of the snow. We got a couple inches the other day and it made everything so pretty. We’re supposed to get more tonight. I know that many of you get enough of snow in your daily lives, but we don’t get it that often here. I thought I could never see snow again in my life after we left Pittsburgh and still be happy. Turns out that I like snow, but only when I don’t have to deal with it every single stinking day. The shoveling, the cold, the scraping, the cold, the dangerous driving, and the cold. Here we get a couple inches, go to work late, and it’s mostly melted off by midday. That rocks.

I’m also feeling antsy today because I haven’t been to dance class. It was canceled last week because the instructor has pneumonia, I didn’t go to the performance this weekend for lots of reasons, and classes are canceled again today. I need to dance! I need the stress release, the community, the exercise, the ME time…

Work has also been crazy- lots of different tasks, lots of new tasks, lots of time-consuming tasks and not much time to do them. Bother.

So I’m scattered, tense, irritable, and tired. And we have to sign a request for repairs today and ask that the sellers credit us for a new roof because the roof on the house is failing. Really, this is just what I needed.

But if anybody had an idea for how to make Blogger post my pictures? It would really make my day.
