Happy New Year, Everyone!
My parents are in town, so I will be resuming my regular blogging on Monday.
Until then, here is a review of 2009 in pictures:
Afternoon naps became rough to wake up from- we decided to ditch them completely.
Joseph discovered that lotion is much more fun than toys
and that smoothies are the most exciting thing on the planet.
He also took his candy obsession to new heights when he tried to eat an M&M directly out of my Dad’s mouth.
Brought extreme cuteness
And frustration with pictures.
A family photo
A first zoo trip
and some unsuccessful valentine making.
Fun with friends
The discovery that Joseph could climb up onto the table by himself
(could we all just take a minute to puke at the extreme cuteness of those shoes??!!)
His first fudge-cicle
And some pergola building
A new swing
Some more naughtiness
and an Easter Egg hunt
His first mango,
The discovery that Joseph is no slouch in the kitchen
some playing in the rain
A new slide
and an announcement.
The discovery that Joseph could now climb up onto the COUNTER by himself
A beach trip
and the mastery of block-tower-building.
The discovery that, while pop-its are extremely fun,
some fireworks are downright scary.
An afro for Brian
Our first kisses
Staying up late to eat a pickle
and our first peek at #2
Some serious flowers
A first trip to the dentist (Grandmas are the best dental hygienists!)
A belly shot
(hahahahahahahaha. What belly? I could eat that belly for an afternoon snack!)
And playing with pay phones at the Portland Airport.
Outside outings with an apple
And the discovery that, although big boy underwear made Joseph EXTREMELY fast, it did not mean that he was ready for potty training. At all.
Pumpkin patch x 3
And some stinky feet
A utility sink
and the cutest dragon in the whole world
Joseph’s first trip to the movies (Polar Express. He lasted 20 minutes.)
A 2nd birthday
and the discovery that, although Big Boy Beds look fun in the daylight, Joseph firmly refuses to sleep in one. Ever.
Some fun in the snow
Christmas pictures coming soon!
Thank you for sharing the journey with me!
