Into EVERYthing!!!

I think I left a cookie in here...

Never can find a ziplock when I need one...

He's still not walking really but who needs to walk when you can still get most anywhere you "need" to be on all fours? And don't even get me started on "bed time."

Working from home...

Here's a sample of what I deal with on a daily basis working from home with a 1 year old. Honestly, he's pretty easy to manipulate (yes, manipulate) most of the time, and will let me know when he needs something...like food.

Almost there...

Over the weekend Fox took his first steps. It was a very small yet momentous event that made all present smile and clap and say "Yay," but none as much as the Tink-Man himself. He was very proud. Further attempts to repeat the act have mostly fallen short due to a lack of interest on his part ("Yeah, dude, I've already done that..."), but he's definitely on his way there.

In the meantime, enjoy this video recorded a couple of days ago. Though he's not walking, he was in the midst of a rampage of destruction (notice the fallen vacuum cleaner and general mess) and at the time practicing what will definitely be a future chore for him...using the hand-held sweeper. The music is compliments of Ratt (obviously).

Here's a picture of our 1 year old!!!!

Happy First Thanksgiving, Fox!

Thanksgiving elicits many emotions for me. It's my favorite holiday... before the stress of Christmas shopping... but also with Christmas on the horizon. Holidays come and go too soon and time with family is fleeting but I'm thankful for all the memories. I miss both of our fathers around this time. My dad's birthday is November 17th. My birthday is always around Thanksgiving. So, Thanksgiving is laden with many bittersweet memories and emotions.

Fox, as you experience your first Thanksgiving, let me just say that you are what I'm most thankful for. God has blessed me with a happy baby boy and each day is a gift with you. You are my sunshine and I'm excited to see each and every new step you make. Every day you amaze me and you bring such joy to our lives. I'm so thankful that you're healthy. I'm so thankful that you're able to stay at home with your Daddy and form a deep bond each day. You are my perfect sweet little angel boy Tink! To say you make our lives interesting would be an understatement.

I love you and hope you have a wonderful day - I know I will.
