all hooked up for my hearing test and still smiling.
what?? uncle eric and aunt kara are having a little girl? yes!
about two weeks ago he began to realize that animals are separate and living entities. unfortunately for him the one dog his size (trooper the pug) only takes an interest in children who have recently bathed in bacon grease or raw meat. our kid is no butcher, so trooper quickly tires of his company.
the face isaac makes while pooping is quickly becoming a classic around here, cheeks red with pressure, eyes squinted with determination, body rigid with effort. he is eating all sorts of new foods lately, mom's blueberry and banana smoothies are among his favorite, so his poop is turning more colors than an everlasting gobstopper. tonight's surprise was a lump the consistency of semi hardened clay and the color of grape soda.
he LOVES to jump. arms up, feet bouncing, happy as a clam, he logs at least a couple hours a day in his jumper. (please note the extremely appropriate onesie which has a picture of a lion and reads "courage". it is a gift from anne deggleman, which supports st. jude's hospital.) when annie and i cheer for him he loves it even more; sometimes he will even look at us and wait for our applause. a first child who loves to be the center of attention? imagine that.
