He was 8 days old in this photo.
Look how tiny he is!
He weighed 7lbs!
And he somehow sensed that his parents were boring people who were incapable of entertaining him.
Not just boring parents, but odd parents.
Easily amused by babies in sunglasses
And toddlers in them as well
not to mention hats
He wore lots of hats until he was about 3 and decided hats were passé.
This child never slept.
Oh there are dozens of photos of him sleeping, but that is because it was such a rare occurrence I felt the need to document it. His waking up at the crack of dawn was a source of serious trouble in our house and probably he watched more TV than recommended because at 5:30am all his parents were capable of was turning on Sprout and drowsing on the sofa.
He only just this past year decided things other than tacos, pizza and goldfish crackers might possibly be food he could enjoy eating. All the years before are filled with long long battles over just how much of what he was going to eat.
These were his favorite books as a toddler. He could read truck related words long before he could read anything else. (much like Mayhem who knew Triceratops before he knew cat).
He’s reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid and How to Train Your Dragon now. DH is counting the time to when he can read Lord of the Rings.
He’s less of a gamer than Mayhem, though he loves his Nintendo DS.
His big fascination right now is Pokemon. He knows all about them, buys the cards with his allowance,and has a few DS games.
He is still interested in Star Wars and Legos
He is an artist. And he gets paid for it!
He still sleeps with the bear my mom gave him and the monkey I gave him when he was born.
He’s so big! He’s 50 inches tall and weighs 50lbs.
Too big really for my lap anymore.
And he is just going to get bigger
Happy Birthday my not so little man!
Forgive all the baby photos please, I didn’t have a blog then so I rarely got to share them.
