Watch me go!

I don't know why this looks so looked great before I uploaded it! It gets the point across anyhow. :)

Someday, I'll remember not to talk when filming these videos, though I think the encouragement helps.


So we've apparently skipped the crawling (though he is getting better at moving around down there) and have gone straight to cruising. He's great at moving to the right, a little more funky about moving to the left. But let's just say he LOVES it. There are always high pitched squeals in the house when he's up and movin'.

On your marks, get set, GO!

Concentration is the key...

And the winner is...HENRY!

And here is where he loses his form...but he's trying!

Parks and pictures

How can you not go for a walk to the park on a day like this? And when going to the park with your baby, how can you not bring a camera?

Hi, mama!

That bicycle is cool.

I mean, it is really cool.

You again, with that camera???

This pole is fanTAStic!

Pole, I love you.

Pole, you sure are tall!

Mom seriously...give me the camera. It's playtime.

Clapping...or something like it

My brother and I finally got Henry to clap yesterday when we were on the MAX. There is no sound to his movement, but at least he's got the right motion down. And of course, the trigger word is "Yaaaaaah." :) We practiced again this morning...

Family, food and sunshine

What gorgeous weather we have been having. We would have been stupid not to go enjoy it with Jim for a family picnic! Here's a pic of Henry enjoying his lunch while we watched some ultimate frisbee players at the Nike campus:

Then mom decides to take advantage of the sun and her son in his Cape Cod outfit (thanks, Mom!).

Wanna catch some rays?

Man, those rays are warm...I need a cold drink
(dedicated to Aunt Jen)

And so concludes our sunshine's almost time for a nap, and a cool down!

I may not be crawling but...

I can tip my hat and say "howdee"

I can feed my mom

I can get myself caught up on dad's hobbies

Isn't that enough?

You know what's so cute?

When you're in the kitchen and over the baby monitor you hear your manly-man of a husband making the silliest and most high-pitched noises you have ever heard from him before and then...the sound of your baby giggling.

Happy Mother's Day indeed. :)

Gimme a spa-i-acy meat-a-ball!

A couple days ago, I fed Henry some Chef Boyardee shells and meatballs. I couldn't help myself. The container was so small and cute and microwavable...I think it was made for toddlers but oh well! Needless to say, he loved it and I had fun watching him get messy. :)

Whaaat eez theez?


Mama loves her some tomato-stained baby. :)

Grass 'n shorts

Warm weather sure brings some fun things with a baby. One is grass, which Henry really likes to feel. The other is shorts, which show off his chubby thighs. :) Here's a couple pics from last night, enjoying the afternoon sunshine:

These next pics are from this morning. Henry looooves playtime in the morning...he's usually all smiles. I know Jim is going to lecture me on the focus in the second pic, but I had to post it anyway b/c of his smile.

Have a great (sunshiny) day everyone!

Express yourself

I was going to wait till tomorrow to post this, but I can't help myself. :) I caught a bunch of funny expressions from Henry today and I just wanted to share. He's a nut.

Don't you be thinkin' about takin' my tray yet, mom. I'm not done.

There is a strange noise coming from's kind of like when you hock a loogie (sorry). It's his new favorite! mom says this is pretty good...I'm not sure about those short guys with the hairy feet though...

Here's just a little update on what Henry's been up to lately...

Here is a picture of him with his favorite new toys. Why pay money?

Henry rolls and rolls and turns and rolls and sometimes ends up far away from mama. Then I get this look that says, "Help?"

He is definitely getting better at getting himself around, even though it still doesn't involve crawling. :P

Today, Henry pulled his first videos off the shelf. Please note which videos he chose. Mama's boy, I guess. :)

Lastly, Henry is getting his two front teeth! The left one is starting to push its way through. Uh oh. Henry is telling me it is time for a bottle and nap. Must go!

Just more pics

You know when you've got 'em, you've got to share 'em. These first two were taken by Uncle Mike - too cute. I love how he got Henry mid-spit. :)

Jim took this next one and I love it b/c it's Henry's classic concentration look. He is just fascinated by grass. Cool.

I always think about how it would be cool if I could think of anything clever to blog about and not just post pictures (though I know that's why most of you check out the blog). Oh well. Not today. Not today.
