Oldies but Goodies

Don’t be hatin’ on the Ewoks

And, for those of a law-enforcement bent

No need to thank me, it’s what I do.

Hanging with the Jellies, Part 2

February 8th, 2012 | 2 Comments | Posted in pretty pictures, The Boy, The wife and I

Hit the zoo yesterday with the wife and the offspring.  The boy is growing in leaps and bounds and becoming quite determined when he sets his mind to something.

Yesterday morning we had him in his walker and he was trying to go through the doorway and get out of the bedroom where we were keeping him contained.  To keep him in the room we had placed a floor fan in the doorway and had it on for circulation.  Matthew came up to the fan, saw he couldn’t get around it and decided to ram it – and managed to move it about an inch.

He still wasn’t able to get out, so he backed up a bit and hit it again, which moved it a little further but still not enough that he could leave.  So, he backed up about two feet, which made me think he was going to go some other direction.  He wasn’t.  He then moved as fast as he could and rammed the fan at full speed!  At that point I decided to step in and pull him out of his walker before he got a really good run at it and broke the dang thing.

Stubborn kid.

Anyway, we hit the zoo and went to the aquarium where this time Matthew stayed awake for the sharks.  As you can see, he thought they were pretty cool

We also hit the jellyfish again.  Quite a difference from the last time.

Mathew then

Matthew now

They grow too fast.  Everyone told me that, but now I know for myself
