Things I've Been Meaning to Do - October!

 Wow! Another full month has gone by already?! Crazy. And with the new month brings a new list of things I've been meaning to do.
{Linking up with The Lazy Mom}

1. I've still been meaning to buy some plastic storage bins, so I can put all these bags of baby clothes into them.

2. Frame & hang this picture. It was made by my step-dad's great-grandma (I think?) who painted lots of pictures. A bunch of random ones were kept by a distant family member, who passed away recently 2 months ago, and gave all the paintings to every great-great-grandchild in the family. And even being "just" a step-child, I was included! This will go perfectly in our master bedroom. But it's been sitting here on the floor of our room since we got it...

3. Take Monster's 18-month photo. Thankfully I'm not too far behind on this one... yet. He just turned 18 months on the 1st of October. But I haven't taken a monthly photo since he turned 12 months.

I have a good excuse for that, I really do! The outfit he'd been wearing didn't fit anymore. Remember the outfit?
 When he was tiny, it was too big.
Then he got bigger, and it was too tiny.

So naturally, the right thing to do was completely forget about taking monthly photos for 6 whole months. (oops) But maybe in the end, it will seem purposeful? I mean, 12 and 18 months are the big 'birthday months', and nobody really cares about 13 months or 16 months... right? Right?! 

But now he's 18 months old, and I am going to take an 18-month photo. Hopefully I do it this week!

(Oh, and what should he wear?)

4. Post about going to the Fair. We went to the Puyallup Fair last year - and I put together a nice blog post about it. Well we also went this year - 2 weeks ago. And I started a post about it.... but never added pictures. Or finished writing about it. So maybe I'll actually finish that post sometime this month and share it! We had lots of fun. :)

Well, that's all I can think of for this month's list of Things I've Been Meaning To Do! Do you have a list like mine? If so, please share, and link it up with The Lazy Mom, too!
