I Love Liz!

Liz Vance is my photographer. She makes me look so good! I love going to her warm studio and stripping all of my clothes off and having my picture taken! (She's pretty talented at hiding all those pertinent little baby parts from the camera lens.) Momma says I take after her in that I am not terribly photogenetic, or something like that... but I think I look pretty good!

Here is a link to the latest photos that Liz took of me:

They won't be there for too terribly long, so go look now!

If you need baby or belly pictures taken in Virginia, Liz is your gal! Mention my name and I'm sure she will take extra special care of you, just like she does of me.

My First Snow!

Boy, this year has been full of "firsts" for me! My first teeth, my first mosquito bite, my first food, and now my first SNOW! Of course, I really don't get what all the fuss is about. Mom says it's cold, but I don't really understand what cold is... I am all warm and snuggly every time she takes me outside, and my room is all toasty warm, and now I get to wear these snuggly warm clothes, too. But I guess it's a big deal.

This Christmas thing is coming up too. The folks are getting all these lights and pretty papers out. Looks pretty neat to me. I can't wait to play with a few of those boxes! Momma says quite a few of them are for me! I think boxes look pretty nifty!

I just love my Moosey, Mortimer. He never gets called Mortimer though... it's usually just Moosey. Mommy decided that I needed a pair of handmade knit pants to wear when I play with Moosey. So she paid a lady named Amy to make a pair for us. They are really cool. Amy has a company called Crankypants and she specializes in making Monster Booty, but she agreed to do a special design just for us!

Here is the blog where they are.

I just LOVE all of the wool pants that Momma has gotten for me. And I LOVE my cloth diapers. They are so soft on my bum. They breath so much better than those paper diapers... those are hot and sticky. And the best part is that Momma says I have never had a diaper rash. Now I don't know what that is, but it doesn't sound too appealing to me.
The names of the diapers make me giggle... I have Fuzzi Bunz and Bum Genius and Berry Plush and Thirsties and Daisy Doodles and of course my new Crankypants! Life is Good!

Keeping up with the Strongs...

Momma says that there are tons of blogs out there. Grandma keeps talking and talking about Mrs Sophia's blog for her boys (Mom says that's Grandma's way of saying "I want more updates on my little Joshua!") I like being Grandma's special boy, so I keep acting all cute for the folks so that they will take more pictures of me and spread them around. I guess it finally worked cause Mom has me typing this blog out now. Sheesh, a guy can't catch a break around here... I've gotta do all this work by myself!

Well, we've gotta at least try to keep up with the Strongs... Mrs Sophia's blog is one of our favorites. I am trying hard to catch up to William, but I think it will take a while. Not only can I barely stand up, but I don't even crawl yet (I mean, Mom carries me every where I need to go and brings Moosey to me when I cry... what more does a guy need?) Now, Momma needs to catch up to Mrs Sophia... she has video and everything on their blog. Way cool. I try to tell Momma that she needs to be cool, too. But I know she is trying, and a little guy can't have everything! Maybe someday we will even catch up to Mrs Angela... her blog has a webcam! I am learning all about things I get to look forward to when I am 18 months old!

Here are our favorite blogs:

Houston We Have Teeth!

I am 5 months and 2 weeks old today and I HAVE TEETH!
Look out world, I am ready to eat you up!

Mommy and Daddy say that I have been grumpy lately, and I have been drooling and chewing on everything. But they don't remember how much hard work this growing up stuff really is. I mean, there are new things to taste, and new teeth and bones to grow. Not everyone can put on 13 pounds in just 5 months! I am now a lean mean eating machine.

On Thanksgiving, I got my first taste of the real world stuff. But it was orange and kinda gross. Mom tried to fool me by mixing it with that rice cereal that I already recognize, but Nothin' Doin'... I crinkled up my nose but good and pushed it away. They said it was carrots, but it tasted like my socks. Now, those PEAS... let's talk about those peas. I have two words for them... YUMMM mmeeeeee! I think I could eat peas all day long.

Mom's gonna put some pictures up here pretty soon. Keep a watch out!
