Pure Joy

I am so thankful that they enjoy one another's company as much as they do!!

And wonder how long it will last after he is walking and talking and gets into her "stuff" for the first time!!

Separation Anxiety

So, the Buddy Boy is now eight months, which is about when one expects separation anxiety to kick in.  At he moment, it is more lonliness than separationa nxziety... he wants someone to look at and talk to.  It can be me, Daddy, or his Big Sis, as long as someone big is there.
Apparently, the four foot high Foghorn Leghorn from my High School days counts.
All hail Uncle Foghorn!!

Taking After His Mama

The Buddy Boy enjoying his books.  Mama loves to read, spends lots of time at the library, and probably more time reading than she should!!  I was noticing that he was trying to grab our books when we were reading, so instead of leaving his books on his shelf, I got out some of the board books and left them with his toys.

He especially loves these ones, they were given to him by my Cousin & his Fiancee, and have textured pages.  He loves to feel the pages!!

Can I feed the Baby?

How 'bout lunch then?  dinner?  Can I feed him his breakfast tomorrow?  I'll feed the baby if you want, then you can eat your breakfast?

I am so lucky to have such a willing helper!!

Hey... how come I'm not falling down??

Cause Mama was quick with the camera then the catch, so he didn't have time!!

Taken about six weeks ago.  He is now sitting on his own, with a few minor head clunks, and is attempting to move.  He looks like a harp seal, he lays on his Tummy, kicks his legs, and tries to swim with his arms!  He's now starting to get either his butt up, or his head up, but hasn't managed both at the same time!

Pulling Santa's Beard

When I took him up, I was going to warn Santa to watch the beard.  But then Little Raven took him up instead, and I forgot to mention it to her.

Luckily, none of the kids noticed that anything was amiss!
