first time on the swings

i think this face says it all.  that, or the fact he started crying when i took him out because it was getting cold. here's to hoping spring isn't too far away.

inside in the sun

it was cold out, but still sunny, so i took a chair for me, and a blanket and toys for J and we enjoyed a bit of inside sunshine at the end of our hall. i'll have to remember this for in the future.

gonna get it

Almost the whole time we were shopping, J kept trying to bend over backwards and get the bag. I'm not sure whet he thought he was going to do with it after, but he sure wanted to get it

baby wearing

I know it isn't the best picture, but it was kind of cute. We tried out the baby carrier as a backpack today. it would have worked better if this carrier was a better design, but it worked well enough to run to the craft store across the street.

Enjoying the Giraffe popper

He's recently gotten strong enough to use it on his own.

Guard Baby

Drew was out in the hall working on a project, and J wanted to watch. So he sat in our doorway, watching very closely to everything going on.

We were charging the batteries in this little guy, and when we went looking for him, we found he had made his way into Drew's backpack, ready to sneak off to work with him.

Companion Cube Valentine

The school has recently acquired a 3D printer, so Drew was cute and made me a companion cube for Valentine's day.

J has been practicing getting up on his hands or his knees, but never both.

"fixing" the couch

Drew added all the wood under the feet, a stop partway through so nothing (i.e. our laptops and power cords which will be generally stored under here) can get lost under the couch for forever, and yes, even a power strip to hide the power cords from little boy hands a d mouths.

Bundled up

It's been freezing cold out so we haven't gone any walks. I really needed to get out of the house, so we bundled up and headed out.

on the computer

J LOVES to play on mom's computer. we've started to hook up a separate keyboard for him to do his banging and "typing" and drooling all over, because keyboards are a whole lot less expensive than laptops are.
