sorry these are blurry – little man was going to town! Thanks, Uncle Colby & Aunt Megan!
‘hmm, these are pretty cool…’
‘maybe i should swing them around and hope they don’t whack my face!’
‘look, ma – yoga!’
at Grumpy’s request, a manlier sun hat
helping Mark grade papers and eat his apple (he sucks all of the juice out)
see G-Ma, he does love Gertie. Usually we keep her in the nursery to distract him during diaper changes, which is why there have been no photos.
$1 shirt from the thrift store – Mark was thrilled!
Thomas is having a blast these days. We’ve gone down to the beach a couple of times, and as long as I can keep the sand out of his mouth, he seems to enjoy it, plus we’ve been getting in lots of long walks in this beautiful spring weather.
He’s loving every food we give him EXCEPT beets (Mark has never liked them, either), and we’ve been putting a little water in a shot glass for him – he can pick it up and drink all by himself! (and only spills sometimes).
He’s starting to outgrow some of his clothes again, so he’s now fitting comfortably in 12 mo sizes and starting to wear 18 mo, which blows my mind. He’s babbling up a storm, screeching and squeaking and ‘talking’ and giggling. Sleeping well – thank goodness!
He’s so close to crawling – he can get from a seated position onto his belly and scoot backwards, or flail around like he’s trying to swim, or roll, but forward motion still eludes him. He looooves climbing all over his mom and dad.
He’s been doing funny things with his mouth lately and won’t let me look in there at all, so I think we may(?) finally be close to the first tooth.
He loves the dog. He’s curious about light switches and lights turning off and on, and loves finding shadows. He likes mirrors. He’s really started to be curious about electronics (cords, laptops, phones), which has us making sure we strike what balance we can.
In other words, a lot of fun.
