{so far so good}

I took some misc. pictures today… trying to capture those moments that define Porter…

his own unique way of holding his babas… (I don’t think he has ever held it like other babies hold bottles… on the sides with both hands… always always at the end..)



No, Porter… MAA MAAA

Porter, Ma MAAA! (said in an over enthusiastic tone)
(hheee heeee) DAH!  DAA DAAA!



The UGLY Scream. 
(this is his "I’m being a brat" scream… drives me nuts. Its high pitched and totally fake. Usually surrounded by a few whines and whimpers.  Punk)

My mom watched P today for a bit while I went into work to help Mo take down the Christmas decorations.  I got home, and they were sitting on the floor, with two cow books and his Melissa and Doug farm sounds blocks.  Porter hits the puzzle, making the cow moo… and he says "Bbbbbbb" (but kind of a buzzing noise).  My mom laughs, and says "He’s saying MOOO".  So she shows him the book, says "cow says MOOOO" and he goes "Bbbbbbb".   So cute.  We showed daddy when he got home- he was pretty impressed.  (I think he has issues with the "m" sound… no MAMA… and MOO is BBBB???) 

He also attempted to say Please and Thank You today.  Ok… he totally just made the inital sounds "P" and "T-T"… My mom was teasing him with a toy, he was getting royally ticked, and doing the Ugly Scream at her.  She said "Say PLEASE" and repeated it a few times.  He says "Pppp"!  He did it about 3 different times.  Then I gave him his toy back, and I said "Say Thank You!"  He says "Ttt-Tttt".  We’re going to have to work on those.


I almost forgot!  Ry took P to the doctor this afternoon. His breathing was sounding kind of raspy, so he made an appointment (which was right in the middle of his naptime… so he was not so fun at the doctors, I heard).  Anyway, I thought they’d for sure say it was nothing more than a cold.  Nope.  Turns out he has an ear infection in both ears and his throat is red and sore.  Wow.  We’re good parents, aren’t we?  So, he’s on ammox. and hopefully will be feeling better soon.  He is now, at 10months, weighing 20lbs exactly. 


  1. Love that picture of P whining/crying/screaming, whatever. One of my favorite pictures of Sawyer is one where he’s mid-cry and it cracks me up, makes me go awwwww, and shake my head all at the same time. That’ll be a great one to look back on down the road!

  2. Poor thing. Those ear infections sneak up on you. Jace had one over Christmas and I thought he had a cold too. At least he trying to talk! Jace is 22 months and at 14 months refused to say anything he had initially started saying. Used to say Gwampa,mama,bye,ni-ni(night), and dada. Now he says eeeaze(please),AAAra(his sister Kara, and bye bye. Every once in awhile when I am not paying attention he says mama. Stubborn kid! Love your random shots! I started doing that the other day of Jace and I’s at home time. Have a great day!

  3. Your layouts are great! Your pictures make each page!

    That is exactly how my kids held thier bottles. Maybe it has something to do with the Avent bottles. I always thought it was so cute- but I NEVER thought to photograph it. :O) You are so good!
