a day in the life of a monster

1.  Wake up with bed-head.  Look cute anyway.

(1 of 15)

2. A little morning couch-yoga to wake up.

(2 of 15)

3. Thumb sucking + Sesame Street.  “Elmoooooooo”  “Elmooooooooo”

(3 of 15)

4. Jake LOVES the dogs.  LOVES.

(4 of 15)

5. The dogs LOVE Jake.

(5 of 15)

6. Socks were worn on hands, more than feet.  Or should I say “ock!”  S’s are still a little hard to say!

(6 of 15)

7. Socks are more fun than toys.  “ock! ock! ock! Elmoooo! Doggyyyy” 

(7 of 15)

8. Time for a swim in the dog bed, multiple times.  Dakota loves it. [fav photo from the day]

(8 of 15)

9. Toys were played with.  Multiple walks were taken.

(9 of 15)

10. Lunch was eaten.  Scarfed!  Jake loves Dr. Praegers spinach potato pancakes!  “more more more”

(10 of 15)

10.  Dogs were cuddled.

(11 of 15)

11. And cuddled more.  Apparently kids don’t need toys.  They just need socks + dog beds to make them completely happy.

(12 of 15)

12. “ni night”

(13 of 15)

13. Bed was overtaken by the monster.  Then a real nap was taken. 

(14 of 15)

14. Delicious, healthy, kid friendly oat bars were made.  Jake loved them and you will too.  Recipe coming Monday!! 

(15 of 15)

15. “Ni night”

Awh he is absolutely adorable! Christmas eve one year my cousin (who was about 3 at the time) had more fun playing with the bag of ripped up wrapping paper than his gifts, lol little ones don't need toys to have fun!

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterElla

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAshley

Didn't watch him everyday, just a few weekends. It's my friend's baby that I went to high school with. :)

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAshley

They are adult friendly too!! :) hehe

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAshley

So freakin' cute. Dogs are the best entertainment for kids, seriously, that was me when I was younger, I would climb into my dog's bed all the time. Dakota actually doesn't look depressed in ANY of the photos!! Hehe

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLaura @ Blogging Over Thyme

He's a little young for Lulu, but would their children not have the most beautiful eyes!

And here I am betrothing my 3 year-old. That ain't right.

Hope you guys have a great day!

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMama Pea

Oh my gosh, is it just me or has Jake gotten so big since the last time you posted pics of him!
Seriously! He has also gotten more adorable, if that is possible :)

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCamille

So cute! Makes me miss the days when my boys were little!

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterkel

So friggin cute!!

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJeff

I love how chill the dog looks about the baby being in its bed. Dog is all, "Um. Okaaay."

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAlexa @ The Girl In Chucks

I thought the same thing as I read through the post!

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered Commenteradriana

I think I would love to cuddle with Dakota in a dog bed too. Looks like a fun day :)

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLauren

So adorable! Yes, a dog and socks are the perfect toys with perhaps the addition of an empty cardboard box for special occasions. Can't wait for the oat bars.

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermarcella

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChristine (The Raw Project)

Move to Colorado and I'm pretty sure I could make that happen. :)

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAshley

I too love Dr. Praeger's spinach pancakes!! :D

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterChristin@purplebirdblog

ha! The dog bed is a popular spot for my son too! He lays on it, rolls on it, and one time I found him sitting next to the dog on it reading books :) Our dog and cat are really the only entertainment my son needs... he's obsessed, and I love it :)
