Happy Baby

You are currently browsing the archive for the Happy Baby category.

The boys got a bouncing, spinning, noise-making, and light flashing horse for Christmas…

and they feel just like the Lone Ranger!

(at least they would if they knew who the Lone Ranger was)

Of course, only one could be the Lone Ranger, the other would have to be Tonto!

Yesterday, Alex and Adam turned “1” … I don’t know what is more amazing, the fact that mom and I survived the first year, or that they did!! The boys had a special treat as their big sister, Jess, and niece other big sister, Kameran, came to share their special day…

There were balloons galore…and naturally, they were personalized…

They each had their own special “1” cake…made from cupcakes.

Mommy and Kameran helped blow-out blew-out the candles, while the boys wondered what in the world was going on…

Then, they got a piece of cake: “What the heck is that?”

In the end, the sugar ruled the day!

Happy Birthday, Boys!!

Whenever we go anywhere, Alex will eventually remove one of his shoes. It does no good to put it back on because he’s just going to remove it again. So, I just say “I know” and “thank you” to all the passer-by’s who kindly tell me that he’s lost a shoe.

Shoeless Joe

He looks like such a ragamuffin.

Alex and Kam

Alex and Adam recently visited their niece (a.k.a. “big sister”), Kameran, to join in the celebration of her 5th birthday! The sweetest little girl in the world took good care of her little uncles and made sure their visit was fun and exciting …

… and what’s more fun and exciting to a little kid than a swing??? 🙂

Get set…


Jumping the Gun

Extremely competitive, Adam tears out of the gate and immediately takes the lead, leaving Alex in the dust (not that Alex really cares).

Have you seen my “passie”?


I can’t see a thing through all this hair…

Alex is having fun on the walker…

Alex on the Walker

…of course, he doesn’t actually “walk”, but he does sit very well, and is highly adept at playing with the noisy buttons and knobs. And with Dad-powered propulsion, why would he even need to walk?

BTW: Those things on his legs are called “baby legs”, and it makes it easier for them to crawl on the floor. I imagine bare knees on tile can be a bit difficult for a baby, so I tolerate the baby legs.

Yesterday, Cindy joined her “mom’s group” for a couple hours of fun-in-the-sun at a local park. The boys had a blast on the swings!

…and when they came home, they napped. Not for long, mind you, but they did nap. 😉

Pretty soon they’ll be climbing over the rail…

Ready for a ride in the wagon, only there’s no horse to pull it (Obviously, Alex doesn’t know that yet :-))

It was a long day, and the boys are plum tuckered out…
