Picture Post Tuesday!

 Sorry for the lack of cuteness lately, folks. I had a minor surgery and the recovery knocked me for more of a loop than I expected. I haven't been following the adorable one around with a camera as much as normal but I did get a few shots I'd like to share with you now that I'm doing better!
 For a day, she wouldn't take this box off her head. She ate with it on, ran around with it on, rode her Pewi YBike with it on, and as seen here, drank with it on.

She stomped and roared like a dino-monster.
 I think she knows how cute we find this.

After laying like this for a while she'll struggle to get up and start saying "Stuck! Help. Stuck!"

I think she also knows how cute we find that, which is why she does it.
 She used to be afraid of this barrel and now it's one of her favorite toys at the baby gym!
When I took this picture she was 20 feet in the air.

At least, that's how it felt to me. It might have been 2.
 What daddy? Don't play with the springs? I'm sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of me playing with the springs.

I deserve some kind of award.
No, seriously daddy, you're going to need to speak up. I'm a little deaf in my left ear. Now, I think you said "try to eat the sunscreen" and I can absolutely do that!

And nevermind how I got up here. I'll show you again later. And again. And again.

Mea Culpa

I apologize for the lack of updates this week. I had hernia surgery today and have not been great at keeping things running as they should be here. I will attempt a picture post on Monday for those craving their Lois fix.

The most difficult part about this recovery is going to be that for the next few days I am not supposed to lift ANYTHING, let alone a wiggling little 23 lbs toddler (she was weighed today).

I have already broken this rule several times when Lois wanted nothing more than daddy to hold her and read her a book.

What can I say? I'm a rebel.

A rebel with a big soft heart and an amazing daughter.

"Good" Morning!

9:45 PM.

That's when she woke up.

3:00 AM.

That's when she actually went to sleep.

Right up until 6:30 AM.

Note to self: Exhausted in the morning but need to smile?

  1. Pull up Google
  2. Google images of puppies or kitties
  3. Pull up one of the photos
  4. Show baby the forward arrow key

Enjoy pictures of puppies/kitties and baby's reaction.

Friday Picture Post!

"'Play?' But I was contemplating existence, daddy!"
Sometimes she doesn't seem to understand that the point of going to the baby gym is so that she can play on the toys and tire herself out, making the rest of the day easier for me while she naps or plays quiet games.

Those days are great for photo opportunities (since she's often sitting still, watching other children playing instead of playing herself) but not so great for tiring her out.

This gate had fallen on the floor. Lois has started helping put the gates back up when the cats knock them down.

This is how she fixed it, all on her own.
"Sure, it rocks, but what is its purpose, daddy?"

Her favorite spot to watch TV.

Haiku For My Little One

Dear daughter of mine,
Get your finger out of there.
Here is a Kleenex.


Go to sleep, my child.
I love you so very much,
When you are sleeping.


It's beautiful out!
Let's go to the park today!
When's my turn to swing?


I love when you sing.
Your voice a beautiful song.
But it's 3 AM.


Don't eat the Kleenex.
Get that out of your mouth, please.
Fine. Just swallow it.
