It's getting colder outside and thankfully we have some warm jackets to suit. Sometimes I just put them on Banks just for a good laugh, plus he doesn't seem to mind.

Michael and I are trying to scan as many of my family photos as possible as a little service to my parents and sisters. Last night, I came across these gems. The first is a picture of my Dad on an early Christmas morning. What a sport. Waking up at 4 am... or being woken up at 4 am to open presents comes with the job I guess. I love his face. The next pic is also of my Dad.
Can you tell which one he is?

The face says it all.

Some things never change.

sweet face

Well, if he keeps growing he'll be our little Benjamin Button. He barely fits his 9 month old outfits. Oh well.

dear aunt sam & uncle chas

I'm sorry for crying the whole time you were babysitting me last weekend. I'm still trying to work through my stranger danger. Plus, Mom says I was bad and didn't take any good naps that day.Please don't be mad at me.

I love you,

Oh how I wish I could have one. Beklina is where you can buy one of these gems from Paris. I want all of them! Maybe the nerd can take a hint.

jungle gym

Mr. Banks loves his jungle gym. I guess it's not really a "jungle gym" but that's what we call it. When you have a chick, everything they do is cute. Watch and learn.

if you give the nerd nutella...

he'll lick it clean and then he'll want to read this book again. I'm not sure how many times he has reread this particular book, but I know it is many. I'm also not sure what it's about, but the front cover looks questionable.

nuff said.

i'd like to bear my testimony...

that I have THE best stroller. Seriously is true. A good friend of mine in California passed on the good word to me about Bumbleride. I love mine because it's car seat compatible but it isn't like the bulky ones that come with the car seats...score. They have way cute colors and other styles too. So, check them out and become a believer.
