To take a bath in one big tub

With soap all over, scrub scrub scrub

Tom is twelve and a half pounds.

Our DVDs were not always locked up.

They are fun to rearrange.

Sometimes you have to choose between using the camera flash, and giving him crazy eyes…

20141219_124837

or not using the flash, and being content with blurry, yellow cuteness.

I made a ton of Christmas cookies, but kind of dropped the ball on decorating and distributing. But look how perfect they are!

20141219_174006

My willing taste-tester shoves a cookie in his mouth before I can change my mind.

Tom had ample opportunity to escape, but chose to stick it out. I love watching their antics.

20141221_090058

Gotta pet him hard, so he can feeeel it.

20141221_090103

They always let him win, wisely.

Josh inadvertently brought home the best souvenir from his business trip – this mini Dasani water bottle. Dave loved it for days and days.

20141222_081621

He attempted to use a rubber band to keep David from unloading his gaming equipment, but Ida can’t resist rubber bands.

20141222_081825

The whole setup was a huge cat magnet, and they (Ida) broke it. Now I think there are hair ties keeping the cabinets closed.

If he wakes up before I’ve drunk my coffee, he chills out in the pack ‘n’ play for a while. He is really easy-going about entertaining himself. He will peruse a board book, play with one of his shoes, shake a rattle for a while.

20141223_124823

“My parents took me to Burger King and all I got were the Cheerios I brought in with me” is something Dave might say.

Christmas Eve

IMG_3276

The presents were stacked on the piano with care. Sometimes I wipe food off his face with a washcloth. Sometimes I wipe it off with Picasa. ;)

IMG_3289

Out on the lawn there arose such a clatter.

Not much snow this year.

David got to open a present from Josh’s mom, which had his first Christmas ornaments and Christmas pajamas!

20141224_192810

“What do you mean, we don’t have a chimney?”

Christmas Day

IMG_3311

I was letting him play with the cookie jar because it is sturdy plastic and I didn’t think he could open it. Only slightly less well-known is this: never go in against a Sicilian when DEATH is on the line!

IMG_3324

New books!

IMG_3338

His British animal sounds video claims owls say “to-whit-to-woo” so that is what we say.

IMG_3347

Oh, my gosh, open it. It took forever. What is it?

IMG_3353

I think of this as his “oh my gosh oh my gosh” face!

Christmas?!

I like to laugh at this picture of Tom. It reminds me of an old-timey crazy person.

20141225_163500

He had cords on for Christmas dinner but it soon became apparent that he couldn’t really move his legs.

Josh cooked, while Tom pussyfooted.

Laughing at his dad

“Yellow ring, you will be my favorite.” And it is to this day

I would like to extend our thanks to everyone who helped make our first Davy Christmas so happy. It kind of kills me that my boy couldn’t spend it with more of his family, but we are truly blessed to have our peeps even when we are remote. I hope my mom and dad know how badly I wanted to be able to celebrate with them the way we used to.

Dec. 26

Dave took a few steps to Josh, but it hasn’t become a regular thing yet. It is still occasional.

20141226_101234

Always hold the leg. You never know.

20141226_101751

I don’t know what was going on, but something definitely was.

20141226_105840

Reading a new book at naptime.

TRYING to sleep.

20141226_134658

TRYING to read.

Ida patiently explains how the baby monitor works.

The coffee was hot. I know because the mug changes colors. ;)

Ida got on the counter when we weren’t in the room. Still a bummer. :(

Touch and go

20141231_114712

This is why I failed to pick up the hamper as quickly as I expected.

20141231_115825

So I have fun with his blocks!

Heating pad: another acceptable activity on a cold day

If you are serious about books, you read them IN the bookshelf.

Pediatric waiting room. He was wearing slipper socks.

20150106_114751

20150106_122743

I think he was too distracted by this flavored tongue depressor to cry during his shot.

There was nothing in the yard.

20150109_143902

He is glad to be out of the baby tub. I had to put it away because he started trying to stand up in it, but he put up with it for a long time. He LOVES the big tub.

“I don’t know to lift the bottle, because I am used to having a straw” is another thing David might say.

20150114_090458

I’m not sure what he loves more, bagels or the big bath tub.

Once in a while he’s good at lounging.

Teething. The two top ones came in around the 12th.

Hanging out in the driver’s seat

You are caught up again. Try to stay that way now; these long posts are a lot of work.
