Pics and stuff

I love my little man.

I love his Daddy too.

Fox is cutting teeth #3 & 4 (oh so fun). He stands for up to 10 seconds, and waves at everyone he sees.
I was totally in denial about this earlier, but now I'll admit it.
He is (sort of) talking.
He says "Dada" when we talk about Vance, "Tss Tss" when we go out and visit Tanji, and today at lunch when Vance asked him if he wanted more, he said "Mmmm".
Notice the significant lack of the word "Momma".

This morning I think he signed "fan". We've been doing baby signs for a few months now, mostly at meal times. I recently started signing 'fan' when he would point at the fan, and then I would help him sign it. Today he signed it on his own, and was so proud of himself.

We went to the TMH Music Therapy Playgroup today. He was quite a hit. All the other babies were sitting in their mom's laps, smiling and enjoying the music. Fox, on the other hand, wanted to stand up on me the whole time and talk - loudly. I truly believe this child was put on this earth to make people laugh. He really enjoyed himself, and we will certainly be going back!

Here is a real conversation Vance and I had earlier this week. I swear, we can't make this stuff up.
"Oh, you can't eat my Oreo McFlurry, it's got chocolate in it."
"No, it's okay, I'm starting to introduce little bits of chocolate into my diet to gauge his reaction."
"Oh good. With your PMS back, I'm afraid you'd kill me without chocolate"

That's all for tonight folks.
Stay tuned for more updates.
If yer lucky.

A few updates...

Fox is way too mobile!
He climbs up and furniture walks all along whatever he can.
No more inchworm, the boy is seriously crawling now.
He does the funniest wave - he just sticks his hand up in the air like he's issuing a proclamation.
I think it's "Yes, I am here, and I am the cutest, funniest baby ever. You may giggle."

Okay, time for bed.

Just a quickie...

One of the silly things I like to do is dress Fox to match Vance.

Here's an example...

Yeah, I need to get out more!

Happy, Danielle? ; )

Danielle has been getting on to me about my lack of posting. I know, I compose them in my head, but y'all don't know that unless I actually get things on the blogosphere. What a weird word that is.

I'm thinking I psyched myself out trying to do big meaningful posts once a month. Yeah, that's the excuse I'll use for not posting. ; )

I'll have to get Vance to show me how to get to our pictures. He's rebuilt his machine (with all the pictures) with some crazy Linux thing called Ubuntu. Every time he says Ubuntu I feel compelled to respond with "God bless you".

Quick Updates:
  • I started a part time job as a Research Assistant with FCRR. I only go in to the office one day a week for 5 hours!
  • Fox has two teeth, and the next few are imminent.
  • He has also started crawling - sort of this modified belly flop that reminds me of an inchworm.
  • Both sets of his grandparents came for the Mother's Day weekend. A good time was had by all.
And now he's awake. Time to get ready and head to church!
