Awsumb and Daddy
reading computer magazines
Awsumb going for a lick of Daddy's lollipop
"God Always Keeps His Promises!"
Awsumb eats his first Kid's Meal from Wendy's
Ok, so he only ate the fries and a bit of his shake.  He didn't care for the chicken  nuggets. 
Even though Mommy washed it, he still licks his toy... Maybe because it smells like Wendy's?
A box, A box!
"Mommy bought this box of baskets for my toys,
I think the box makes a great tunnel!"
Awsumb showing off his new Cowboy PJ's
Awsumb, finally brave enough to learn to crawl down the stairs!

"Winter Wonderland"
“And there were in the same country
shepherds abiding in the field,
keeping watch over their flocks by night.
And, lo, an angel of the Lord appeared unto them:
and they were sore afraid.
But the angel said unto them,
Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings
of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David
a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” 
Awsumb's Fisher-Price Little People Nativity Set
Daddy brought this extra keyboard home from work,
hoping it would keep Awsumb busy while Mommy and Daddy were on the computer. 
Awsumb thinks he just needs his own computer!
Of all the toys in our house, Daddy's IPAC is truly, Awsumb's very favorite to get a hold of!
 Merry Christmas!

"Can I take it off to play with now?"
While Daddy was sweeping Awsumb went over and picked up the dust pan to help,
now if he would just learn to dust like Anjah!
Mommy's friend sent this outfit from Italy
Awsumb caught coloring on the wall in the office with a blue crayon!
Maybe cheerios will keep Awsumb busy?
"If I make monkey faces Mommy will think I am so cute she will forget about my wall art!"

It's all about balloons at our house!

Awsumb is very sweet and always bring the heart Balloon to Mommy (it is from Valentine's)

Awsumb's first day of Jr. Nursery Class
Peanut, Peanut Butter, and JELLY!
Bath time!  First bath in the BIG TUB!
First Trip to the ZOO!
Awsumb took his first trip to the zoo with his friend Anjah.  On the left is Awsumb with his plastic elephant and turtle balloon.  On the Right Awsumb checks out the MONKEYS!  I think he liked the Otters and the Peacock the best.  (I will get more pictures from Anjah's Mommy soon!)
Every time we get out a blanket and spread it on the floor Awsumb wants to play under it.
So, I made a little tent with the card table and a quilt. 
You can see here how much Awsumb loved to play in his little tent.  And so did Daddy!
"Come here, Katrina, let me show you
my favorite place to read"  says Awsumb
Smile for the camera!
We just don't know why Awsumb finds the bottom step so comfortable.  He often leans back as if he is sitting in an easy chair.  Too funny!  Here he is dreaming over a Lego Blocks catalog

August Visit From Gpa and Gma Hardy
Awsumb, showing off his new hat... and what a kissable face he has!
Awsumb is really into fire trucks.  He can tell you all about them.  He likes to point out the pumps, ladders and hoses.  Most fire engines are red, but he likes YELLOW ones best! Gma Hardy put Awsumb right to sleep with his favorite night time story book.  We are going to hire her to come over every night!

At the pool Awsumb wears this funny float suit.  What a "tub a lub"!
