Twilight Dave

11 Aug

The hours between the last nap and bedtime are always tricky. Here is my semi-cranky boy last night, trapped in a laundry basket because he got jealous watching me trap Tom. After deciding he liked being under it, he complained if I removed it.




Going outside is great for cranky babies! We headed to the backyard to keep Josh company as he worked on the cars a little.


“This was supposed to make me happy?” “Well, I thought–” “WERE you thinking, Mama?”


“Heh, it IS pretty sunny.”


“This lady knows her stuff.” To which Mama lovingly replies, “You’ll grow into that head, buddy.”


He did not complain about how prickly the grass was, but it was sharp and I hated it! So we relocated to the back-back of our SUV to watch Dada more comfortably.




Removing the dealership sticker because Mama is not being paid to advertise around town.

You can really get used to referring to yourself in the third person all the time. Or the second. ;)


“My mom laughs at her own jokes.”

Then it was finally time to go inside and have dinner and get to bed.

Here are some pictures from today. In the past week or two David has started growling to let us know that he wants something he sees. It started with the Xbox remote, which lights up when you press a button. But now it can be applied to anything and everything. For example, this morning he wanted a coat hanger while I was hanging up clothes. And it’s not just that he wanted one; he WANTED one. He gets crazy eyes. See below.


Happily sucking on the saline bottle, which he had been growling for.


Then he started growling at the camera. He is not allowed to hold the camera!


“Give me that camera.”


Appeased with saline.



“Give me that camera.”


“I need that camera.”


“Just…move it this way a little.”


Willing it closer.

All the while growling menacingly, mind you. So I throw the kid a bone!

    You’ve got some interesting pics that you should hang onto for his teen years. They say revenge can be so sweet. Hmmm… (Don’t tell Davy I suggested this. :) Shame on Aunt Fun!)
    Keep taking those great candid shots! I love the laundry basket jail.

    The one where he’s willing it closer … did you have to hold it tighter? He looks so determined!

      I can’t imagine where all this personality comes from. Josh and I are so mild.

    Cute post! After seeing him last week, it’s hard to imagine him ever being cranky!
