Current mood:irritatedI've been meaning to post all this for forever. Get ready to see the boy grow up before your eyes...
Baby's first skeeter bites. Knee and head.
I got him started on his manly hilarious t-shirt collection. I'm guessing now that he's gonna turn out straight because gay men tend to have ironic t-shirt collections more than funny.
(Yeah, that says got milk. They should make them for Hindu kids that say "goat milk". Now that's funny.)
I went out a couple of times. Here is me with my sister Liza, looking luscious. Actually we look like a Heart album cover. You know why.
I mentioned I bought a house. Here are the dogs looking nervous about the whole matter.
Bridget came over to check it out. Here she is with Thor.
I took Thor to the company picnic. Here he is with his face painted.
So, I'm gonna kind of skim over this part, but as he learned to hold his head up and sit up and those things, he became more interactive, and so I started buying him a bunch of amusing toys. First was this lie-on-your-back play gym thing, and as you can see it freaked him out a bit...
But he is still styling in his flutter-sleeve blouse.
Then came the johnny-jump-up...
... that he will actually jump in until he falls asleep!!!
God, what a cute baby.
And then came the exersaucer. Nice.
But man, I love when the weather finally starts to cool off. I took a picture of this, and it doesn't even begin to capture how beautiful it was.
Know what it is? It's the chain-link fence where I park. Yep, that's right, future site of my head injury (email me for details).
Near the end of October, we took a trip to Liza's in North Carolina for a family weekend, and to meet Thor's great-grandmother. Here they are.
And here is Liza and Thor hiking.
The headgear came out for the season. Note the dumb adorable hat (with Danielle, who he adores).
At the beginning of November, I went to DC on business and took Thor with me. We went to Bethesda to have dinner with my old friend Anya and her beautiful family. Here's Anya and Thor.
Here is Thor, rolling around on the giant bed, peeing everywhere.
And here he is, proving we were in DC, since we didn't go to any tourist things.
Yes, he is on a luggage cart.
Then, in the airport, Thor sat in a high chair for the first time because Mommy needed a drink. Bad.
Later that month Dad had to have a procedure and Liza came down to visit. It was kind of unneccesary for her to come, so she took revenge by doing two things at once that annoy my dad tremendously (as pictured here)... wasting latex gloves and playing with his flashlight.
The next big event was Thor's other great-grandmother's birthday party at the beginning of December. Here's Grandma...
And here's Meat Chunk throwing down.
And finally, this past Saturday, we went with Dad to the Y to have breakfast with Santa. Here's thor with Grandpa.
And here's Thor with Santa. He fell asleep in line and there was no waking him. Really wish this picture turned out brighter.
And finally, let me leave you with the most depressing picture of the holiday season. The Christmas tree at the Atlanta City Detention Center. Just one more reason to keep your nose clean this December: a sub-par tree.
