Thanksgiving Feast

Harrison, the Baker!

Decorating cookies
... and eating the cookies

Making cookies is hard work!


Photo Shoot Fail

Getting a decent picture of 2 high-energy rambunctious wombats is nearly impossible. But on days where they are dressed the same, the need for a photo trumps all.

Me: Harrison can you go stand by your brother to get a picture taken?
Harrison: Cheese!
Me: Brooks, where's momma? Hey Buddy...
Brooks gives slobber kisses to the windows I cleaned.
How does that Windex taste?
Me: Harrison turn around so I can take your picture!
Harrison: Brooks. Say cheese! (as he shoves his head into the window)
(Humor me and tell me it's the cutest you've ever seen!? Please.)

A Comparison, Shall We?

2 very chubby, rolls-galore "little" boys
1 set of well-worn jammies

Brooks 8 months
Harrison 6 months
(Harrison was a gigantic baby, wasn't he?! I had no idea just how giant he was until
comparing him to Brooks-I think at 6 months H still weighed more than
B does now!)


8 Months

Baby Brooks is 8 months old!
The last 8 months has just flown by. How did my sweet tiny newborn grow so quickly? He is still a happy little dude, who loves anyone who will talk to him. He is a busy dude, too! He has got to be the world's fastest crawler and is into EVERYTHING. He loves Harrison and is constantly laughing at him. Harrison just eats it up.

Brooks is waving now! He babbles, saying dada and baba. He tries to mimic just about everything Harrison does. And the boy loves food. He looks like a baby bird at feeding time. Mouth open, tongue out. And as you can see from the photo, he doesn't miss too many meals!


One Happy Little Guy

I'm not sure if he was deliriously tired or what, but Brooks was cracking up with his daddy.

Way too excited for pictures momma
Our little bat

Racecars, Firetrucks, Walking Babies! Oh My!

You had to do a double take on that title, didn't you!? So I had this idea in my head that my second child would be a content, easy going kiddo. Not true. While he is a VERY happy boy, the kid is constantly moving. He is now pulling himself up on everything and cruising! And he's not even 8 months yet! How can it be that my sweet little BABY is trying to walk?! I have mentioned before that Brian and I call Brooks a wombat. The other night at dinner, I said something along the lines of "oh Brooks, you're such a wombat" to which Harrison replied, "I om-bat, too?" We just died laughing.

Meet Wombat

Brian's new surgery center opened last week. They had a huge party for the public, complete with helicopters, firetrucks, racecars and food. Harrison is really into big trucks these days, especially firetrucks. So he was in love with this bad boy.
