Harv *Almost* Three

What in the world is happening to my children? Why are they growing so ding dang fast? Everyone says it goes so fast, and on really looong tantrum filled days, I think they're all so darn full of it. But then when you look back at baby photos, and look across the room at your huge almost-three-year-old, you realize "they" are so right (just this time).

I finally have a few photos that I either bribed him to allow me to take, or just snuck a few photos out of him. He never wants to have his picture taken these days. "NO take a pishure!" every time he sees the camera, or even our phones turned a certain way. He tries to be so independent and so strong willed, yet he wants his "bwanket", wants mommy and/or daddy to snuggle every night, he sucks his thumb like a crazy person. Ah, three year old madness.

Here are some recent photos of The Harv.

A boy, his blanket, and his thumb. What more could he need?

Well, he obviously also needs cowboy boots.

And time-out, for those days when he's getting really crazy.

Sweet, sweet brotherly love.

And some train tracks. Little buddy is obsessed with trains, train tracks, train videos on the computer (not even kidding, just boring videos shot by people's cell phones that they've posted online. John has endured many hours watching/enjoying those videos with him!).

Big Harv loves, loves, loves time with daddy. He's always so super excited to get home to "Go see daddy!". Melts my little Grinch heart every time. I love all my boys.

Charlie Seven Months

What in the world??! Since when is this guy seven months old?! Since Saturday, actually. It's funny really. I noticed last week that he was going to be seven months old this Saturday, and it dawned on me that he wasn't sitting up yet. Most seven month olds can sit up.......some even have been for some time. So we kicked it into high gear, and he's totally sitting up! He was definitely ready, he just needed some gentle prodding. And propping.

Let's just act like I did this because I'm an excellent mother and not because I desperately wanted to take some photos of him sitting up in front of his calendar. It sound so much better that way.






So here's big Char at seven months.

It was St Patty's Day, so here's what he was really wearing:

He didn't want to get pinched or something.

I love that little face.

Some fun facts about Charlie at 7 months:

He LOVES blankets, lovies, anything soft and snugglie.

He is obsessed with feeding himself. He wants to hold his bottle (and squirt it all over his face), and he's dying to eat real food. With his gums. And two teeth. Baby Mum Mums save the day.

Some of his nicknames: Char Char, Chugga Chugga Charlie, Chugs, Charlie Bird (Bird, Baby Bird), Char Char Binks. He's got some interesting names! Most of them aren't used out in public, that's for sure.

Tomorrow, a WHOLE post about Harvey. I finalyl have enough photos of him to do a post on him..........unreal.
