the cowboy, the hippie, and a drumroll, please

Bugg has had two Halloween parties
at preschool already.
The boy can really strut his stuff!
The cowbugg.......

the stache just kills me!

And the hippie-bugg.....

coming off the bus

With bell-bottoms, peace patches,
and a FRO,
Bugg seemed to be saying,
"Make peace, not war......
and mother, someday I'll get you for this."
Okay, so,
insert a hearty drumroll.............

He stands!
And perhaps for only .07 seconds,
but still.
(Brian was right there, I promise.)
Oh, OH! My heart is so happy
to see this.
And look, little sister is looking UP to her big brother.
When Wyatt isn't in his chair,
she is normally
ripping his glasses off, patting his hair, &
poking her finger in his belly button.
This is a new favorite picture of mine.
Peace out, friends!

    Thank you Wyatt, for being such an inspiration to me!

  29. O.k So I was having a bad day, but now ask me what kind of day I am having? I am having one of the absolute BEST days ever, and do you know why? Because I saw Buggy standing all by himself. and oh my tears just run down my face imagining how proud he was of himself and I can just imagine how proud you and Brian where of him. I love this picture I dont think I have ever stared at a picture for just so long. Im on cloud 9 now. just what I needed to get over my crabbiness with the feeding supply company lol. Yai Wyatt! xxxx bunch o hugs your way baby boy! MUA MUA MUA MUA from Bri Hailey and me!

  30. Yay! I'm so happy for the Bugg! And you!

    By the way, somehow your feed wasn't being updated in my reader so I got like 10 from you today. And I need to go to the park. We used to go every day, but now that it takes effort (and a car) to get there. We don't go NEARLY as often.


Thank you for going the extra mile to leave a note. xoxo
