Baby on a Box

There aren't too many things in this life that I find sweeter than squatty short little baby legs and tiny baby booty in baggy jeans.  Don't you agree?

Yes, those are pictures of her on the computer that she is looking so intently at.  We have probably the most self-centered toddler on the planet.  She will stand at our computer and watch pictures of herself all day if we let her.  I think if we took her over to someones house and she saw a computer, she would be very put out that it is not showing pictures of her.   

Probably should do something to correct this behavior soon.    :)

One evening last week I had a particularly precocious toddler on my hands and needed a way to keep my eye on her while I cooked dinner.  This is what I came up with to keep Marissa in one place without having to restrain her.  We think it is pretty funny and, yes, we know she will figure it out very shortly and we will be out of luck.  But for now...

Wow! You should sell your idea. Forget expensive books and stuff, just do the "Alicia and Jeremy's child on a box"! It'll do wonders for your sanity!

Love you guys!

She is the sweetest baby on a box ever. Too funny! You all crack me up. She's allowed to be as conceited as she wants.
