A Random Thing Or Two-sday

 Dress: Vintage. Tights: Target. Platforms: c/o Jellypop. Bow: Handmade.

1) For months I've been staring at this side swept, French girl-esque hairdo I ripped from the pages of my Lucky magazine and pinned (literally) to my idea board at my desk. Then I about died of a cuteness overload when I saw this hairstyle. The opportunity to try a new hair doozie is one that should not be missed, and I am all for the front hair clip. It's a sweet, retro look. A girl can never have too many hairstyles, right? Maybe I will even share a DIY post on how to make big, fat, awesome hair bows so I can do this hair style next.

2) Fact: "The human brain cell can hold 5 times as much information as the Encyclopedia Britannica. Or any other encyclopedia for that matter. Scientists have yet to settle on a definitive amount, but the storage capacity of the brain in electronic terms is thought to be between 3 or even 1,000 terabytes" (source). That's a whole lotta information and I suddenly feel inspired to up my book reading quota.

3) We've been teaching Luke some basic sign language so he can communicate to us when he is hungry or thirsty. We mostly use the "more" sign and I love the way his little tiny baby fingers hit together when he says it. Babies signing is up there on the cuteness overload chart. Do you teach your kiddos to sign? What are your opinions?

4) For the record, Skinny Cow fudge bars are the best.

5) Would you rather be able to speak Klingon or Elvish (assuming you don't know either... if you know them, I envy and praise you)?

That dress! Love it!

And I'm officially nuts for the barrett and bow trend this spring.

Elvish I think would sound prettier so I'll go with that.

I am loving the side-swept with the clip! So cute! Not sure I could ever do the big bow again though after years of cheerleading I think I am all bowed out :)

I don't have any little munchkins yet but I use to teach pre-school and when I first began I had a class of 2-3 year olds and signing was sometimes our only communication. It was amazing how much they knew and how easy it was to use. I think every parent should go buy a basic sign language book and try signing with their babies. Much easier for them to use than their words at such a young age! :)

We do signing with our babies, and it is so wonderful. I'm being a real go-getter this time around, and have been introducing my 4-month-old to the sign for "milk" while he nurses. :)
And, according to my dad, I used to speak Klingon as a child. My parents, it seemed, were always watching star trek. Unfortunately, I have no memory of this awesomeness. darn. I think I'd rather speak Elvish, anyway.

and i was thinking about whether to teach sign language to a. i will probably have to learn it first :)
