Thomas: 5 months

Back, by popular demand.......[drumrolling] the LIP SUCKER!!!! [cheers erupt]

Oh yeah, he also smiles too.

But only until he's had it.

He's loving his rice cereal again (we had a brief falling out for a while).

He's going to re-learn to sleep through the night (again with the falling out).

And he still thinks that 6am is a perfectly appropriate time to wake up for the day (if he doesn't knock it off, he and I are going to have a falling out).

He laughs very best for Josh (I'm talking air-sucking, squealing, bowl-full-of-jelly laughing) and occasionally for me. (Perhaps a small chuckle or a pity laugh. He and I had a "this is how you pity laugh" session because if he's gonna be in this family, it's an art he'll have to master.)

He still doesn't roll by choice and it hasn't occurred to him that by rolling he can get places (anybody trying to get rid of that obnoxious gate that's still blocking your stairs even though all your kids are grown? anybody?).

He refuses to believe that laying on the floor playing with toys is a perfectly acceptable way to spend the afternoon (it is) and instead prefers to scream until I hold him then immediately stop screaming and smile at me (he's lucky he's so cute). People assure me that eventually he'll want nothing to do with me, and I believe that....but I'm not sure I can wait 12 years...... Fortunately he's a Seinfeld junkie.

This kid's smile will melt your heart (assuming of course that you have one...) and force you to act like an idiot just to try to make him smile again. And it's totally worth the whole idiocy thing....even if you are walking down the aisles at the grocery store. 


  1. He's such a cutie! Asher has that same Monkey outfit, though it doesn't fit him anymore. Good luck with the getting him back to sleeping thing!

  2. awe cute! love the pictures.
    we had a nice falling out with sleeping last night too. with both of our children. boooo!

  3. So, I basically think that your lip sucker should marry my thumb sucker. He's just too darn cute for his own good!

  4. I can say enough how cute that boy is!!! Lately, he has really been reminding me of Logan. Do you see that resemblance at all, or is it just me?

  5. You seriously have one stinkin' CUTE kid! Just in case, you know, you may have missed THE OBVIOUS.
