The Last of the Fall Pictures

17 Dec

David has become quite mobile since October, and his huge fat legs seem to be shrinking a little with the constant exercise. They say that all good things must end some day; autumn leaves must fall.

Last week he and I were visiting my family in California. The four flights (David has been on 16 planes, not including in utero) were not as bad as I expected, and he made friends with other passengers. The trip was fun, but of course flew by!

Nov. 9 I am not sure exactly when he started pulling up, but this was one of the first times. As soon as he heard me take a picture he started coming for the camera.IMG_2913

Is she keeping her friend close or her enemy closer? She tends to be nearby.

A tarmac guy tapped on our window as he walked by and noticed the baby face plastered to it.

David liked this nativity.

Dec. 10 The kitten and the baby were very interested in each other, and each other’s toys. Pretty cute!

They both liked the guitar stand as a toy, but Waldo eventually got knocked off the arm of the couch by his end of it.

We came home to a sad, empty house. (Well, the cats were there.) Josh is away, but just for the week! I am so glad he will be here for Baby’s First Christmas.

    Tons of great pics! Mo in the mirror–love it! Sad I missed the tea. The decor looks lovely. He seems very mobile for his age! witty captions, as always.

    A+ blog post

      Thanks. It’s funny about the decor, I am still just ripping off your designs years later. I didn’t have a lot of time to get more creative, but I was super proud of the little bows on the window hardware.
      I love the pictures of him smashing his crazy faces against the baby gate. I’m sure I put too many, but hey it is my blog.
