Now I know (I KNOW!) that just about every mama thinks her baby is impossibly beautiful, and I started to feel a little embarrassed about actually feeling that way, too, and then realized that of COURSE we all feel that way, because it’s TRUE:


So, let me share my impossibly beautiful baby with you once again. He is wearing a buttery soft knit hat and sweater set that Grandma L made back before he was born. We laughed then, thinking it was insanely big and that maybe he could wear it when he was two or so, and of course now the sweater barely fits on his body and the hat fits perfectly.

In some of the pics, he is looking up at some wind chimes on the porch that fascinate him, in some the kitten, Karen, is getting his attention, and in some, of course, he just wants to eat the camera.








In other Rainbow news, he has now realized that Yobaby fruity yogurt is just as delicious as Gerber #2 mac-n-cheese with veggies. So he likes to alternate courses of each dish during meals now: a serving of yogurt, a serving of mac, then yogurt, then mac… It’s pretty sweet, in a bossy kind of way – he’ll decide he’s had enough of one thing and clamp his lips shut and hum in irritation until you break out the other thing.

And he’s full tilt with the backward scoot-crawling, the being brought to a coffee table and holding himself up fairly well, clicking his tongue, shaking his head, and clapping his hands.

    He is impossibly beautiful. All of his features are really delicate and beautiful especially his eyes. Congratulations on having such a wonderful baby 🙂

    We stopped in Saturday night to visit with Papa. Rainbow had already gone to sleep, so we didn’t get a visit with your little man. The older boys are getting so BIG. They were polite & funny.

    Thanks, Sarah. It’s so amazing that we get to be his parents, every day.

    I’m sorry we missed you, Mary. We were out being Gilligan’s Island people with school parents, I guess. The big boys amaze me, too. Both of them just look so manly lately, like their faces are getting more angular and grown-up looking, and they are much more muscular. I think they’re pretty funny, too, and I’m glad they were polite.
