Today was a very busy travel day -- on our way to Hawaii! I handled the plane pretty well, I must say.

Aided by some creative swaddling techniques, Dad helped get me to sleep, then Mom held me during naptime.

I also had playtime!

I guess this is what baby jet lag looks like?

At least I don't have to wear pants!

I was very resistant to napping this morning, so Mom took me out for an early walk. Brrrr -- it was chilly out there! She really bundled me up. And despite the cold, one can't argue with results.

I think I'm ready for some warmer weather, though. I wonder if I'll get it...

Today I had a nice long afternoon nap on Daddy.

Very cozy indeed.

But who knows what a very long afternoon nap may mean for my night-time sleep...

Today I got a visit from Aunt Darcy, which Mom of course had to document.

Darcy did some flying baby PLUS blowing raspberries with me, which I found quite delightful.

Mom and Dad took me to get another round of shots today. I know they're good for me, but they're still no fun.

I didn't cry at all with the first one, but the second one burned so I had to do a little bit of crying. After that, I just wanted to rest. Maybe with a cozy blanket.

I'm getting better at grabbing. Check it out.

I'm also getting better at making funny faces.

I spend a lot of time practicing both.

Merry Christmas to all!

I spent Christmas morning with Mom's family. Uncle Drew got me a cool owl book, then added to the coolness by reading it to me!

Later on at the Veltmans' I got some appropriately named toys.

And at the end of the day, we relaxed at ho --- oooh what are theeeese?

Books from Santa, about daddies and kids. Just right for us.

I'm a very lucky boy.

I hope your holiday was as great as mine!

Snuggling with Dad after waking up from a nap. HIM waking up from a nap, not me. I mean, seriously, how much sleep does this guy need?

Yes, while certain people are napping, some other people are busy doing industrious things, like chewing on whatever we can grab with our two drool-covered hands.

Mom is such a goober. When she speaks nonsense to me, I nearly laugh!

Saturday, December 22, 2012


Dad and I agree that the best way to spread Christmas cheer is by singing loud for all to hear.

Friday, December 21, 2012

Gee, I hope no one takes a picture of me furtively gnawing on this washcloth and posts it on the internet...

I can't wait until I can pick out my own clothes. Mom puts me in so many stripes!

I'm gonna bust out some paisley. Or maybe plaid! How about a nice gingham?

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

I like to wriggle and squirm. Yesterday I did a pelvic thrust so extreme, Mom thought I might roll right over! Stomping is also great fun.

Mom introduced me to Sophie the giraffe today. I was nonplussed. Maybe because she was speaking French...?

Sunday, December 16, 2012

Just relaxing in my reindeer footie.

Later in the day I soiled it with a truly epic BM, but Mom was able to salvage it. Whew! I do love my festive holiday duds.

Today I tried to start off the day with a nice breakfast of green eggs and hand.*

But, since Mom and Dad informed me that hands have no nutritive value, we went to brunch with our friends Bob and Sarah instead. I did great -- only one brief bit of wailing when I tried to head-butt Mom in the mouth.

And I capped off the day by reading with Dad.

*Alternate descriptions include "Moons over my Hand-y" or "Handnormous". Feel free to submit your own edible hand pun in the comments!

See, Moose? I was able to grab -- and hold -- this owl. It's only a matter of time until I have you in my clutches!

In the car mirror, Mom thought I was sucking my thumb for the first time. Psych!

It's probably because I chew on my hands a LOT lately. Teething?

Lately, standing is my favorite.

What's that you say? I'm not actually standing, I'm being propped up by my adult caretakers?

I don't wanna hear it.

Daddy tickles are the best!

Well, Mommy kisses aren't so bad either.

Sunday, December 9, 2012

I am three months old today. And I got to see my first Christmas tree! If I'm anything like my dad, there are some pretty awesome trees in my future.

How about we celebrate with some more babbling?

Saturday, December 8, 2012

Whoever am I smiling at?

Why, it's Mr. Fuzzy Moose!

And in case you had anything to say about my pink onesie? Whatever. I know I'm making it work.

Friday, December 7, 2012

Oh hey guys, didn't see you there. I was just sitting here in this chair relaxing.

After another walk with my friend Claire today, we chilled on her activity mat for a bit. This gave me an excellent opportunity to flirt with her.

First, I offered her tickets to the gun show.

When that -- shockingly -- didn't get her attention, I kinda reached out and patted her on the arm.

Ah, that caught her eye!

She finally let me hold hands.

Maybe next time we'll read some books together.

Sent this pic in with my audition to be the villain in the next Bond movie.

I've got it locked up, right? Now I just need a cool codename, and a plan for world domination. Muah hah hah hah...

Sometimes after my bath, I turn into a tiger.

Only for a few minutes, though, because tigers don't get cuddly hugs and they don't get to sleep in Mom and Dad's room.

Tummy time times two

What a difference a week makes!

Here I am doing tummy time a week ago, on November 26th. It ain't pretty.

And look at me now!
