Waffle: A Love Story

waffle, the first sighting

The first sighting of the waffle. It elicited oooohhhs and aaahhhs and screeches of varying volumes.

oh god please give me that waffle

Nico then resorted to begging. This approach seemed to work fairly well.

See? See how it's done?

After taking his first few steps last week, Nico seemed to have forgotten all about walking. But inspired by his good luck with the waffle, he walked away, straight for the Zbars! his next conquest.

nico headed for Clif bars

When that didn’t work, he resorted to the telephone. An old favorite.

old faithful, the phone. Delicious.

If you’re wondering who dressed him, it was either Ben or Matt. I take no credit for the psychedelic shorts and tie dye onesie combo.

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    mmmm waffles. i love them too. ten million times more than pancakes.

    personally i am a big fan of the onsie over the shorts. easy access? 🙂

    I did it. I dressed him in that outfit and snapped the onesie over the shorts. And I’d do it again!

    At our house they are “wapoops” and the waffle iron is “the big owie.”

    I think I must have once said to not touch the iron or he would get an owie. You just never know what will stick in their minds!

    Those chubby little bow legs going for the clif bars is too much cuteness for my heart to stand!

    Nico’s eyes are stunning and I don’t blame him one bit, waffles will get me off the couch too.

    Hi Andrea,
    I have long adored your site, your wonderful family and your photography. Today I am adoring your couch! Would you tell me where you got it? What brand? Is it velvet? I’ve been looking for one just like it. Please do tell. Thanks! Julian

    great big sigh of remembrance over here in western north Carolina (did you hear it?)…. So fast, it all happens so so fast.
    Have a pin made (bright and earnest colors) that says “my daddy dressed me today”. And when the time comes, another that says “I dressed myself today”. Hell, sometimes I need to wear one myself! what a big seller those would be (hmmmmm….. wheels creaking into motion here)….
    I continue to fall into love with very REAL you, miss A. Stay that way….x

    Love this! So adorable … and fun.
