I Must Document EVERYTHING

H fell face-first onto one of his toy buckets yesterday while playing. It didn't seem to be that hard until about 10 minutes later we realized his eye was swelling up and turning dark colors.

This picture doesn't really do it justice. When he closes his eye it really shines.

Let The Chaos Begin

I ran out to get some coffee this morning before Lucas left for work and it was already nasty outside. The weather man on channel 9 called this storm "catastrophic". Really. Well, if that is true I'm definitely staying inside to watch movies and drink my coffee to try and survive.

Henson is doing his part by keeping watch of the latest weather changes. Then he reports back to me and I give him a puff. He's well trained.

Betrothed

These two are going to get married some day. It's just fate. Or forced marriage. But that's all the rage, right?
Just look at how perfect these two are together.

Already holding hands...

Henson teaching Violet how to use his toys...Vi listening intently and swooning...
...okay, maybe Henson scared Vi to death every time he opened his mouth with his shrieking sounds. He may have shattered my dream for him - literally. It kinda seems like the ways that guys try and get a girl's attention never changes...

(can I put any more ellipses in this post...?)

Just "TWO" Facts

I have no pictures for documentation, but the following indeed did happen.

Fact: Henson got his first TWO teeth last week. Nothing, then TWO at the same time. Good grief.

Fact: Henson took his first TWO steps last week. My word child. At least I know I will never have
trouble getting my exercise with him around.

Fact: I MAY have had TWO coffees in ONE day. Don't judge me. Read previous FACT.

"I'm A Pretty Big Deal Around Here"

Literally. Henson had his 9 month checkup & is still in the 93rd% for his height at 30 inches.
He is wearing 12-18 month clothing for length. He is actually getting thinner, though. No doubt because NEVER stops moving, even when he eats. He thinks he should have been walking two months ago. He actually is SO close to taking steps on his own. He has been known recently to be free standing in the middle of a room. Stinker. Slow down!

Memory Foam Makes Hibernation Sound Like a Perfect Idea

After receiving this beauty for Christmas I am strongly debating moving everything I need to survive into my bedroom so that I never need to leave. I. love. this. thing.

"It's For the Kids!"


Lucas has mentioned more than once how cool it would be to have a playroom/theatre room with a stage for our kids to play on and do shows someday. Yeeesss....our kids definitely need something like that....they might actually get a turn using it once every year, too.

Reality. Really?

Today I understand, but do not accept, that H is going to continue to get bigger and older. Hmmm. Well, today marks 9 months and I really am in denial. It's already January!! Only 3 more months until he's 1!?! Shoot.
I just love this picture.


Love this big little guy.

Round 2 - Minco style

These are just some random pictures, but it is all I managed from Ross Christmas yesterday. We made it through two family Christmases without one picture of all three of us together. Way to go, me.






Oh, and Happy New Year!
