Giveaway Winner - But First, Tell Me How Awesome My Child Is

Yes, it's Friday, and in the interest of starting off the weekend on a generous note, I could simply cut to the chase and tell you who the winner of the fabulous E-Mealz meal planning subscription is.

However, we can agree I'm neither generous nor brief, so first I'm going to force you to look at 11-month photos of my no-longer-so-wee Master P and further, implore you to comment on how delicious he is.

We parents like to pretend we have some valid excuse for foisting baby photos on innocents - something along the lines of "keeping everyone updated" blah blah blah. What we actually mean is, "Look, I'm trying my best here, there is no guidebook to doing this right, yet the baby is still alive. Please just give me some validation and tell me my kid is cute even if you secretly think he looks like a mini-Trump."

It has been a good yet challenging few weeks on the parenting front here at Pretty HQ. In addition to taking his first steps, Master P is also getting two teeth and battling an ear infection while we attempt to suss out the source of his ongoing sniffles. He's finally working on his "mamamamama", after months of cruelly going on & on about "dadadadada", and is wanting extra snuggle time* with the former. Signs of a burgeoning temper are popping up, complete with wails of being VERY ANNOYED INDEED with mamamama when he isn't at liberty to practice said walking every moment of the day.
*Show of hands - who thought the phrase "extra snuggle time" would ever be deployed here? Me neither.

What I actually mean by all this is, "Look, I'm trying my best here, there is no guidebook to doing this right, yet the baby is still alive. Please just give me some validation and tell me my kid is cute even if you secretly think he looks like a mini-Trump."

Ahem. And so I bring you Master P's 11-month photo shoot or, more accurately, our attempt at same:




And . . . cue validation!

He is too funny, I love the shot of his diaper-clad behind in the air as he dives off the chair, he wasn't sending you a message, was he? (heh,heh,heh.)

He does grow ever-more-darling with every month that passes, meeting his obligation to Pretty up The Planet, in a masculine manner of speaking.

Happy weekend to all of you!

He is cute! That 'photo shoot' just makes me relish in the stationary baby stage that we are in even more.
