What could be cuter than a baby in a diaper? Well, except maybe a naked baby, but posting a nude photo of Michael on here would be inappropriate. :)

Here he is after his bath (refusing to put on pajamas). It looks like he wants to play outside and is totally bummed that it is raining. :)

Messy, messy, messy

My precious baby is officially off baby food. He only wants table food now...poor kid, blessed with a mom who cannot cook. I have been steaming veggies to give him and he LOVES carrots! The only glitch...WHAT A MESS!!! And he is soooo proud if it!

Oh Em Gee

After his nap today...

Straw magic!

For those of you who know Michael well, you know that the sippy cup has been a challenge. He will drink from any sippy cup you give him, but you have to hold it. He doesn't realize that he has to tilt his head back to get water from it! Well, I decided to get the kind of kid cups with the built in straw. He does beautifully! I wish I had thought of it ages ago! I am sure that I will hear somewhere in the next week many reasons to NOT use these cups with a 9 month old, but until then, I am using it!

Laughing at Grandmother!

Oh, that face!

New camera

I finally got my new camera...and now the fun begins. I am going to try to master this thing, but I promise it will take a while. Anyone willing to model? :)

Here are a few from today:

I love when he sits like this!

The boys hanging out...look at Michael's feet!

Much better!

Thankfully, last night was much better for Michael. The tooth still hasn't broken through, but he had a normal night's sleep. PHEW. No excessive wake-ups. :) Teething still stinks...he has been a little short tempered all morning and was ready for a nap after an hour of being awake. But, we still had some fun!

How sad it this?! I keep that gate up so Michael can't get to the dog's bowls!

Michael and his sea of play tables.
Now that he pulls up, he is much more interested in them. :)

I guess it is true what they say,they love the boxes!

Oh What a Night...

We had a horrible night last night. Michael was up 4 times! He hasn't done that in AGES. I feel so sorry for him. He is so out of sorts. Fingers crossed that the tooth breaks through SOON.

Luckily, he just went down for a nap and there is a Temptation Island 2 marathon on. WOOHOO!

Teething and Valentines

My poor baby...he is teething again. His top right tooth is coming through and he just isn't himself. He isn't fussy, but he is taking very short naps and not going down easily. I feel so sorry for him! After his nap today, he was still so tired that he came out and snuggled up on the couch. I took a few pics of him. is pretty sad. :(

On a lighter note, I pulled out an old bib today for breakfast. I can tell I need to do laundry when the old holiday bibs make it into the rotation! Anyhoo, it made me think back to when he first wore this bib and I just had to post the photos to show the difference! Enjoy!

Oh, and this is one of his new tricks...waving! He is so proud of himself.

Gandmudder playdate

Michael had a wonderful day today playing with Grandmother! When Lily was still learning to talk, she pronounced it "Gandmudder." Needless to say, my whole family LOVES that!

Michael's favorite books continue to be touch and feel books. Any time I see one I pick it up. Today, I noticed that he had an Easter one on the book shelf in his room. He loved it!

I seriously LOVE...

...comments! I am an addict. I tell you, I log on time and time again to find out if anyone has left a comment! So...if you see something you like, please feel free to comment! No pressure, I don't want obligatory comments. I only want sincere comments. :)

Anyhoo...I am cleaning the house today while Michael plays with Grandmother. Photos to come later!

Splish Splash!

Michael and I went to Zach and Amy's today to play in the POOL! The boys had a GREAT time!

Someone got very tired at the end of the day...

Can you tell that both boys are teething?


Probably already talking football...just like their dads.

Those eyes...
Look at this face!!!!!!!

Photo shoot this morning

Michael was a good sport for me this morning. He let me take lots of photos! Here are my favorites.

A walk, a road trip, and pulling up!

That about sums up our last 24 hours, believe it or not! Last night before bed, the 5 of us went for a walk. I included the photo from our walk because it perfectly illustrates how Michael watches the dogs walk the whole time! He loves them!!

After bedtime, I went up to NJ to visit with my VERY dear friend Julie and her 2 kids, Lindsay and Zachary. I can't believe how grown up they are!

After returning today, Michael and I just spent a nice quiet day crawling all around and, of course, pulling up! I thought I would share some of the 7,000,000 pictures I have taken of him standing!!

He is trying to climb into the dog's bed!

Back to school!

Michael and I went to my school today to have lunch with my old team. What fun! Michael's friend, Zach, was there too. Both boys even took naps!

Good morning!

My sweet baby this morning!

Giving hugs to his Lion

Giving hugs to Jack Jack

Check out the drool...can you tell he is teething?!
See that look? He wants to play with either my shoes or the curtains...
and he is not allowed to play with either.
