Have a great weekend.

My sweets, what are you doing this weekend? We're going out for sushi tonight and heading to the Pulse Art Fair tomorrow. (I'm hoping to meet Kim McCarty, whose paintings are amazing!) We're also trying to convince Toby that crawling might be fun now that's he's nine months old. He prefers to just sit and chill. :) Meanwhile, here are a few fun links from around the web...

AMAZING ship wallpaper!!!

Ahoy! The cutest sailor jeans.

Awesome fabrics of London + Paris.

Polka dots in Milan.

The loneliest whale in the world.

Beautiful moon print.

Michigan mittens!

A clip from Annie Hall to make you smile.

A dinosaur birthday party.

Beautiful childhood photos from the (brand new!) Momfilter.

Since a few readers asked, the red lipstick that Caroline was wearing was Covergirl Outlast Lipstain in Wild Berry.

Plus, three of my favorite Cup of Jo posts:
* City Hall wedding in overalls.
* Cute families.
* Belly shots.

Have a good one, my darlings!

Hoping to go wine tasting and eat the best mac and cheese in town (both wine and mac and cheese from the same cute little cheese shop). Was also hoping for a pre-spring hike, but doesn't look like the weather is going to cooperate.

Hey...why are you posting belly shots? ;)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Diana Mieczan said...

Part of the reason I look so forward to the weekend is because of this post! Have a lovely weekend and here's to hoping your little man starts to crawl - you can do it, Toby!

It looks like we are doing sushi as well! Yum! Have a wonderful weekend. I will surely be hunting for some rest and relaxation among all the crap I have to get done! Dog park and gelato? Middle of the day movie? Lazy Sunday brunch? All of the above? :)

Hi Jo
My daughter was 9 months and two weeks when we caught a plane from Sydney to Buenos Aires and then to Patagonia, At 10 months in Patagonia she just started to crawl. I was so eager for her to crawl, she was so frustrated not being able to go anywhere and it just happened after so much travel and jet lag. She is now started to crawl with a bit more confidence she is 10 months and 1 week. Good luck and I sure he will start before you know it.

Holly said...

mmm, sushi! sounds yummy!
i might have to have some too!

NCavillones said...

My oldest, Alice, didn't crawl until she was 11 months. I was convinced she'd take forever to walk, too but she ended up walking at 13 months. My youngest, Stella, is ten months and started crawling at 9 months, and is DYING to start walking. I'm like, sloooooooow down, I can't deal! I much prefer the late crawling... LOL. Be careful what you wish for. :)

Tamara Nicole said...

We're going to sushi tonight too, double date style:-)

Enjoy your weekend hun!

This is super cute! :) Have a good one!

Toby is such a little cutie. I'm sure he'll start moving around soon enough. :) My husband's older brother & sister are twins. His brother started crawling at 6 months, and his twin sister just sat and watched him until one day when they were 9 months old, she just stood up and walked off. Maybe Toby will surprise you one day soon!

I have to tell you I really enjoy your blog. It is one of the few I read regularly. Don't worry, my baby boy is 9 mos old too and is perfectly content sitting. He has no desire to crawl yet. Have a good weekend.

Caddy said...

Have a fun weekend too. That story about the whale was sad. Poor thing. :(

rachel said...

aw, thanks for the link love, joanna! hope you have a wonderful weekend. xo.

Julia said...

I just looked at the loneliest whale in the world post. The back story of is that I just broke up with my boyfriend of 3 and half years this week. I actually feel like the loneliest whale in the world so I click the link and open the page up to see my name, Julia, across the screen, then I read the story- its just so ironic. Although the story is not about me its funny to be identified as the loneliest whale at first.

Amanda Ford said...

I have a special occasion today! Great post. Happy weakend!

Amanda Swann said...

Just be careful what you wish for with your little guy. Mine started to crawl at 5 months and climb EVERYTHING by 7 months. Oh how I wish I could have gotten more time with him just chilling.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Hallo! Have a fab weekend. I've been to an artists market...and will be off to a permaculture meet tomorrow! Your pics are great, always good to see a slice of life on the other side of the world

Poet Whale said...

Maybe Toby will take off when he has some place he wants to go.Try not to scream when you see him walking around. It can happen.

Meanwhile, blanket on floor one of you in the front encouraging (not teasing) with fav toys, the other of you by his side with hands at Toby's feet. When he puts pressure on the hands, then propell him forward a little so he associates moving with his own steam, not the hands. Goog luck and a fun week-end

kate reymann said...

What!? He's nine months old? I feel like he was just born about a minute ago.

My son spent about three weeks in the blissful sit but didn't move phase and then he started crawling. Then he started walking five months later. Now he runs everywhere very very fast and my heart is constantly in my throat as I watch him hurtle down the street as I call for the millionth time, "Stop!" He's two. Live it up in the non mobile world while you can! :-)

Siri said...

My son never crawled! Just up and started walking at 13 months. To be honest, I didn't mind knowing that when I plopped him down somewhere, he wasn't going anywhere : )

My dad bought my son those MI mittens!

Bethany said...

Great collection! The whale post made me tear up. And as a native Michigander that moved to Chicago, I would LOVE a pair of those mittens - they'd come in real "handy" when I try to tell people where I'm from haha.

Karen Kristian said...

Eeeee Joanna!!!

I wanted to thank you for the London fabric post! I saw it in a fabric store in Nashville last fall and have regretted buying it since!!! Now I can get it, you are the best.

I looooove reminders of what an absolute classic "Annie Hall" is.

Barbie (Birds of a Lovely Feather) said...

Excited to see what 20x200 has in store. And I really like Kim's watercolors. Thanks for the tips!

BuffaloBeaux said...

Don't fret. It took my nephew forever to crawl. He has a peculiar fascination with cell phones (so shiny and forbidden!) so finally we tied a string around my phone and dragged it away from him while he was playing on the floor (like we were playing with a kitten), and sure enough he took off after it. I think he was about 10.5 months when it happened. He's 14 months now and now we can't get him to hold still!

Bethany said...

My mom used to do the same thing as BuffaloBeaux suggested. If you put interesting things just out of his reach and don't give in when he fusses about it, he'll find the motivation to reach it on his own. Funny how that works.

Alyssa said...

I adore those Michigan mittens!
