He did it AGAIN!

This is more than likely left over easter candy. It's a good shot of his faux-hawk too.

This is I know is easter candy. Hopefully this was also the last time he was in that particular car seat.

thePirate wears kilts (maybe he's an Irish Pirate) and to keep hims legs warm he wears long socks. Matey decided that he needed to wear them too.

He fell asleep again! With just snuggles! No nursing!

It was bedtime, we laid down, I tried to nurse him, he wasn't so interested, I decided that I'd give him a while to wind down, he just kept fidgeting/rolling around, I started to sing softly to him, he snuggled down and... fell asleep!

From like 10:20pm to 1somthing am! And then he slept from then to 6:45am when he woke up!

I'll let him wake up earlier without complaint if he'll fall asleep on his own and stay that way.

FYI- it's sad but true that him sleeping from 10-1 is an accomplishment. He usually wakes up around midnight if not 11 most nights to eat some more.

Things he's doing: trying to whistle.
I don't think it's on purpose that he's whistling, he like to make quasi-monkey noises forming an "o" and breathing in and out and recently on the exhales I've caught him making very soft whistling.
tottering around.
Before he would only take a few tottering "steps" towards me but now he'll take them away from me as well. It's still not regular (only once or twice a week) but I thought I'd include it because if he's walking yet is a major question I get. I don't include these totters as "steps" per say because it's more falling with style than walking. He'll lean towards something and then realize he needs to be just a bit closer or he'll land on his face so he moves a foot a few inches.

That's everything really new that he's doing. He's still cute and fun to watch.

Love for thePirate

Photo Pot-Pourri

Pictures of the man child (Matey) living life.

Behold him helping to unload the dishwasher:

The pie dish *was* clean. He had been sweeping before he started unloading. Matey is the hardest working 1yr old on the planet.

Behold him not touching things what he is not allowed to touch:

Unfortunately Matey is too smart for his own good. He knows he's not allowed to touch the VCR/PSP/Plants/Ect so lately he's taken to touching them with other things. Forks, pens, brushes, recorder, and as pictured above: an empty giant pixy stix.

Behold him loving his AnWanna:

He LOVES his AnWanna (he generally LOVES everyone after a day locked up with Mommy). On this day however AnWanna wasn't so much into loving him... Matey stayed outside her door for a good 5 min peeking under the crack, playing with the cord, shoving things into her room to no avail.

Behold Matey in the backpack:

Grammy loves Matey. Grammy loves to bake. Matey loves to be held. The solution is strapping him in while she bakes and best of all: She shares! It's a little hard to see but his mouth/face is smeared with... batter? cookie dough? Something yummy.

Behold Matey enjoying his birthday cake:

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I LOVE his faces! This is a quintisential Matey face. A grinning sneaky nose wrinkle of a smile.

Love to thePirate.
