Happy May!

Yay for May!

May is a hopeful month. I don't think I've ever been through an entire month of May without getting some serious sunshine, and I am enormously looking forward to it! Goodbye sweaters, hello skirts! Despite the irresponsibly late snow storms, we have managed to get a few really nice days, and the Frog looks soooo cute leading the way in the stroller.

Here's one of him wearing shorts!! Look at those little knees!

The Frog has been making huge progress lately! He is now willing to scoot/crawl pretty good distances to get things he wants and is becoming quite the explorer. Does anyone know where I can buy a hovering garbage can? I'm pretty sure we're going to need to swap out ours for a few of those to prevent the little man from ingesting any nasties. (or maybe I should say, any MORE nasties)

Speaking of ingestion, he's also proving to be a pretty good eater. He hasn't really turned his nose up to anything yet, and turns out he really likes Indian food. (Which is good because if he didn't, he would have to learn to like it.) Unfortunately, he has a bad habit of shoving WAAAY too much food in his mouth (probably he's been watching his dad too closely) and gagging until I can finger it out. I've had to restrict how much food I will leave within his reach. This morning he had pancakes for the first time, and I think it went over pretty well. (And so did my experimental swirl :D)

Note: good eater does not necessarily mean clean.

Jay invented a (I like to say) more advanced version of Peek-a-Boo where we alternate putting a burp-cloth or blanket on one of our three heads and the Frog will yank it off. The Frog will even crawl across the room to reveal the hiding head; it's too cute. However, as flirtatious as he may be, turns out The Frog is not a performer. Every time we try to get the cuteness on video he just buckles under the pressure. Guess you'll just have to come visit if you want to get the full effect :)

Finally, The Frog has been enjoying his Easter rubber ducky and likes to splash around in the tubby. I believe it's high time we posted a naked baby shot, don't you?

AH! Naked baby! I want to witness Jack's new-and-improved mobility. He was still having some struggles with it when I saw him last weekend. Hopefully it won't have to wait until our next dinner.

There is nothing cuter than a naked baby picture. Goodness, he looks like Jay. I'm glad it wasn't a picture of Jay in the bathtub :| And little Henry is just as good of an eater as your tyke, only cleaner. I don't know why, but you might be onto something with this mimicking the father. It is nice when they eat everything, including things you don't. Henry has a HUGE container of raisins all to himself that will last at least until he's two.
