A cool and calm moment on a hot day

Everyone is feeling cranky from the heat. Jacob and I found an excuse for a quiet nurse in the air conditioned bedroom.

Kitty loves Jacob

Here's Kitty, keeping us company while we nurse. She will also come find me if the baby is crying and I'm out of the room.

Hey Mama!

Do I need a plumber or a paleontologist?

A dino pool party is going on at our place.

Why I don't bed share with Bub

Poor Bub has been so jealous that Baby gets to sleep with me.

Pleeeeeease, Mommy, I'll lay down the whole time!

I've been saying no for almost 2 months and tonight his persistence met my fatigue which was being crushed by my apathy.  He insisted on bringing a stuffed kitty and his giant blanket.

Fine, get in.

Feeling benevolent and maternal, I nursed Baby on one side and Bub lay on the other.  Baby fell asleep while Bub drove his knees into my back, walked a Beany Baby across my back, sucked on the tail or foot of said Beany Baby and other things I couldn't identify.

Bub was marched across the hall and my door is locked.  Good night!

This little face

.... is why I put up with endless shenanigans.

This little face, this little sleeping, quiet, not talking back, not scowling, not mad at me face, is my baby.

This little face I will kiss and then I will be as patient as I can be

with the wild Imp who embodies my baby in the daylight.

Good night, Bub.

I'll see you first.

Seen here is a saucy 3-6 month ensemble, Jacob seems to say, "You love me. You want to snuggle me."

Big Love and Little Love

The bug Fascination begins

Bub is into bugs.... yuck. This is our new pet, a tiny caterpillar.

Formerly, I've been rewarding him for killing ants and spiders in the house.

Goodnight, T Rex, goodnight!

Ready for action even in his dreams.  You have got to love this kid.

I'm exhausted for a cute reason

Jacob, you are the noisiest sleeper! And eater! I may have to evict you from Mama's bed soon.

Who weighs 11 pounds 4 ounces?

This guy! He got longer, too. He's 22 1/2 ".

Little Jacob did so well at his one month appointment today. He got many compliments on his cuteness and he was very brave when he got a shot.

Birthday Dinner

Bub requested that we all go to dinner at Ted's.  He was very excited to be out as a family.  Here he is as a T Rex.

The Birthday Boy!

Happy birthday, Bub!

You are a cyclone of activity, a rainbow of smiles and your laughter warms me like the sunshine.

Life would be boring without you!

I love you, honey bun! Here's to the best year yet!

A special walk with Bub

Bub and I took his new map out on an adventure.

Jacob Apples is One Month Old

I won't be eating pizza for a year.

Let's just say that pizza doesn't seem to agree with Mr. Apples' tummy. We have some reflux after all. Hopefully it won't go beyond avoiding acidic foods.

Sigh, I love pizza!


We have baby 2 am.  Of course!

Bub is 4! (almost)

I just ordered a therizinosaurus toy! Amazon truly has the biggest selection on Earth. I think it was the only dinosaur that Bub did NOT get yesterday.  I am certain that after UPS delivers the therizinosaurus that we will have every single blessed dinosaur known to have ever walked, flown or swum the ancient Earth.

Bub had a great time at his party today. At times, he was a little overwhelmed by all the excitement and attention and we did have some meltdowns. Overall, he was a really happy boy.

This is as close as I was to get as far as a picture of the two of us.

Thank you and giant hugs to everyone who made today extra special by celebrating with us.

Racing cars

Bub taking the gold medal

Big Winner!

We hit up the Spring Festival in town. One of the games was knock down the cans. The operator told Bub as she handed him the bean bags, "Just knock down the cans to win."

Bub walked up with two fists of bean bags and pushed over the cans, claiming his candy prize. Chris and I cracked up!

We had a blast in the moon bounce and Bub won a gold medal in a NASCAR type race.

Jacob Apples napped through the action.
