Photo dump extravaganza continues. (does it count if I have only ever done one photo dump post in the past? does that make a repeat an extravaganza? please say yes.)
Okay – so you know what is gonna happen – I will show you some old photos from May and narrate what is happening…so boys, you can tune out if you want…no hurt feelings….girls, be warned that this is kinda boring….and mother in laws – eat your heart out 🙂 just kidding…but seriously, this is for you who-adore-my-awesome-baby….
kidding…this is actually a shot from the park.
the park we went to with the main attraction here…
For some reason, May was the month that Will really turned up the personality dial. He all of a sudden was not an opinionated baby…but an opinionated toddler who acted on said opinions.
This was also the month that he became aware of animals…and was not interested in them. I however was acutely interested in these baby geese. Whenever I see baby animals, I think it might be God telling me that THAT would be the month for baby #2. We know now that these quacklings were simply a sign that Vines Botanical Gardens has geese that get it on.
Will exploring the gardens…
He loved this little red bridge…it was smaller and he got so excited about going up on top. It’s funny how babies know when things are miniature sized…them-sized…and are drawn to them. I sometimes wonder if giants are the same way. I vote yes. Evidence? My uncle Derek is a rather large man and you should see the bathroom he built himself.
It’s hard to believe that it was such a short time ago…his hair wasn’t even long enough to get in his eyes yet.
Oh and May was also the month that I continued my faceless portrait efforts. I love these of Jer & Will…
Almost as cute as the Shakespeare hand….almost 🙂
This month we also focused heavily on Cole riding his bike. Poor kid still struggles with it. It’s almost like he’s gone past the point of return…the bikes are getting so big for him that he can’t control them…yet, he can master a jump-back-flip-whip-pounce on Lego Star Wars video game in a matter of moments.
Will’s hair makes me so happy. I cut it off tonight…and seeing these photos makes me kinda wish I hadn’t.
When he’s not sitting in my lap, he’s begging to ride the four-wheeler. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…I’m raising a redneck.
John Deere? Yup. Total redneck.
May also marked Will’s first trip to the Pottery Barn outlet. Welcome to heaven Will.
His hair cracks me up here. He doesn’t even look like himself.
Wait – apply those statements to both the boyfriend and the baby.
The sweetest part of this post is the next onslaught of photos…
Will’s first ice cream cone. We went to Bruster’s (one of our absolute favorites) and got Will his first free baby cone. (he was licking mine in the photo above while we waited for his!)
I was a little nervous because 1. we don’t give the little guy a whole cone of sugar on a daily basis and I didn’t know how he’d react and 2. he doesn’t drink regular milk…only almond milk…and while in irrational-mother-mode, I was concerned that even a little bit of icecream made with regular milk might make him more susceptable to ear infections…you might say that I have a very healthy fear of ear infections.
He was kinda confused about the entire thing.
Confused because he loved it and could only have the baby cone.
His chocolate goatee slays me. He looks like a 1996 boy band member…that is also a vampire.
But of course, nothing says Will Bower like his paci. This thing calls his name. It’s the same one I ranted about many times before. And to be frank…I am shocked that we still have it. Seriously. Maybe we should get an award or something. Because I think that “17 Months of Pacifier Dedication and Retention” would look awesome on a trophy. Just sayin…
okay – so that was May…more to do…much much more.
In other news – we have some new sponsors! Double back flips Batman!
Welcome to Tiny Prints! I am thrilled to have them onboard…especially since their holiday cards are amazing and I need that shortcut to them in my sidebar so I won’t forget to order my Christmas cards this year. Yeah…these are so much cooler than the ones I can make…or buy at…well…anywhere in Loganville. I’m just having a hard time deciding between a tri-fold like this or a regular multi-photo card like this…any thoughts?
I’d also like to welcome back Coca & Ella…who is still kicking it outta the ballpark with things like baby keepsake prints (collective AWW!) and custom printable invites for all those important moments in life…like baby showers 🙂
So that’s it for now….off to prep more for the wedding. Hopefully I’ll have a giveaway post up later for ya’ll…it’s a good one too 😉 Wish me luck…no scratch that…wish me endurance!
