Se7en + 1 = 3

Yup, Where did the time go, three months old today and I thought I would show you a day in in my little life.

DSC00345

Oblivious.

DSC00350

I work very hard all night to get my feet free!

DSC00360

I stir.

DSC00365DSC00364

I am surrounded.

DSC00370

I hang.

DSC00371

My favorite place to be.

DSC00374

Morning biggest brother.

DSC00376DSC00377

Let’s get these dishes sorted.

DSC00382

Check some email.

DSC00384DSC00385

Get some breakfast smoothies going and do my wild arm thing.

DSC00381

Gosh I’ve been so busy, I am ready for a nap.

DSC00389DSC00390

But wait, the mother person has other ideas. I will just quickly take this chance to do my wild arm thing…

DSC00393

Splish, Splash I am taking a bath.

DSC00398

Snuggle in my towel – just love my towel.

DSC00400DSC00401

Check out the wild life.

DSC00405DSC00406

Now seriously I am very tired. Just don’t cover those feet.

DSC00408

Just help the mother person read her book, while I make sure I don’t wake up starving.

DSC00409

That’s me. Please pop me down, any bed will do. Really, I am not fussy!!!

DSC00414

But don’t leave me too long, Captain Cuddles just can’t want to be alone.

DSC00415DSC00424

Make sure that mother person gets her lunch, and do my wild arm thing.

DSC00426DSC00429

Oh Good, there is laundry to watch.

DSC00430

And watch.

DSC00432DSC00433

Oops a bit of a blow-out!!! Fresh clothes all round and look at how funny that mother person is!!!

DSC00454DSC00455

Time to watch some wild gardening event, that mother person is all about fresh air.

DSC00456DSC00457

And some time for a quick wild arm thing, before tea-time and more story-time with the mother person’s fat book.

DSC00483

Time to learn some more arm waving tricks from the big tree.

DSC00473

Looking and learning, while those others gather around that table again.

DSC00484DSC00486

At least someone thinks I am more important than supper.

DSC00487

And has time for stories. Broadening my horizons, I dare say!!!

DSC00489

And if it isn’t the father person, always good for a man-to-man.

DSC00490DSC00492

I really need to ask him about those flashing lights.

DSC00497

But I am just too tired. And they can’t find my jammies, but I am not fussy and will happily settle for my cool guitar top, at least my toes will be free!!!

DSC00503

Now that was a busy day at the office. Got to go.

Oblivious.

    Handsome boy!

  • 2 Sands // Dec 30, 2009 at 3:06 am

    Lovely. He is so cute…

  • 3 Southern Gal // Dec 30, 2009 at 5:15 am

    How did you do that in 30 minutes? That’s great. It takes my computer a long time to upload photos so mine would be restricted to mostly words. 🙂

    Your baby is so cute. My youngest still kicks the covers off his feet every night and he’s seven! I’ve resorted to crew socks to keep his feet warm in the winter. He’s not a fan, but he thanks me in the morning.

  • 4 Victoria // Dec 30, 2009 at 6:16 am

    LOVE IT!
    Oh, how I wish to reach out and touch those chubby cheeks! And the hair! ..sigh…goodness, how can you stand it?
    Can we trade places? Just so I could hold Captain Cuddles for five minutes?
    No? Oh well, this post will have to do.
    Many thanks:)

    Hay Steadymom, You said it!!!

  • 6 se7en // Dec 30, 2009 at 8:14 am

    Hi Steadymom, You said it!!! I hope you have a great 2010 with your family. Thanks for doing the 30 minute Challenge for all of us, it has been great!!!

  • 7 se7en // Dec 30, 2009 at 8:14 am

    Hi S, You are so right!!! We gotta keep this one too!!! Have a great 2010!

  • 8 se7en // Dec 30, 2009 at 8:19 am

    Hi Southern Gal, I have a “how to write a post in 30 minutes” floating in my head – but another idea always jumps in the way!!! I have a lot of time to plot and plan and “write” in my head… I haven’t yet figured out how to type and nurse at the same time!!! Upload all my photos to flickr at the “quietest time” of day… you will see my challenges are mostly pictures… the words are pre-written in my head and fly!!!!

    This guy hates his feet covered but likes his one arm tucked in!!! You know the whole wild arm thing can be a bit much when you are fast asleep!!! Have a great day!

  • 9 se7en // Dec 30, 2009 at 8:24 am

    Hi V, We can’t stand it!!! He is so cute that for the past three months we have done almost nothing except wonder at him!!! I don’t think you would be allowed to trade places with any of us!!! Hope you have a great 2010… and have lots of fun with your new camera!!!

  • 10 Sands // Dec 30, 2009 at 3:22 pm

    Well if you decide not to keep him (just kidding) send him my way… He is adorable and I am so broody. My friend is having another baby next year. I have been waiting over eight years since my son was born (he is my second one) and till now nothing. Children are such a blessing and yours are all beautiful… Take care and God Bless.

  • 11 katherinemarie // Dec 30, 2009 at 4:40 pm

    Ohhhh I just want to gooble gooble all of him up. Those cheeks and those toes and that sweet sweet baby skin. So perfect!

    And I offically think you take more photos than I do… and that’s is a collosal amount my friend. Have you ever counted? I estimated a bit back that every four years I take 50,000 photos and that does NOT include my clients… hehehehe… I’m thinking you are like 100,000!!!!!

    Thanks for the BEAUTIUFL BABY BOY Fix!!!!

  • 12 se7en // Dec 30, 2009 at 4:48 pm

    Aw S, I am sorry… Unfortunately we have just eight keepers in a row!!! Lots of Love…

  • 13 Aunty Muffin // Dec 30, 2009 at 5:00 pm

    Just too cute!
    Thanks also for the lovely message on “joy”, one that I will take with me inte the New Year. Have a blessed 2010!
    Miss you all!

  • 14 Shannon // Dec 30, 2009 at 5:57 pm

    What a great story! As I watch “my” little girl (she’s a foster girl so it’s only temporary) but I wonder what she must think as she goes from constant hand offs from one adult to the next- with me as a bit of a steady face now. I so enjoy trying to change my perspective to hers. He’s just so cute!

  • 15 se7en // Dec 30, 2009 at 6:06 pm

    Hi KM – Knew you would like it… I am not going to tell you how many photographs I take – especially since I am not a photographer!!! I should have a “guess how many pictures I have in my iphoto competition… lets just say vast and I throw NOTHING away, just in case!!! And back to number 8, he is divine isn’t he!!! Hope you guys are having fun!!!

  • 16 se7en // Dec 30, 2009 at 6:07 pm

    Hay Aunty Muffin, Glad you liked the Joy!!!… Hope you guys are finding some friends and not freezing to death!!!

  • 17 se7en // Dec 30, 2009 at 6:08 pm

    Hay S, Well done for being the steady one – I sure would love to spend some time in your backyard! Have a great New Year together!!!

  • 18 Sands // Dec 30, 2009 at 10:19 pm

    Have a great New Year everyone. 2010 is the year I embark into HS. You are such an inspiration. OK need to punch in the order…

  • 19 se7en // Dec 30, 2009 at 10:54 pm

    Hay S… I hope you have great fun Home Schooling: There will be good times, there will be bad times and there will be great times!!!Have a fabulous 2010 yourself!!!

  • 20 Sands // Dec 31, 2009 at 12:18 am

    We are doing Core 1 & 3 in 2010. My friend as just finished Core 1 so she is lending me some of her books so I will only have to add some stuff of Core 1 and all of Core 3. So we brought home the Core 1 books and the kids got into these straight away we had to send them to bed. My son was asking me how many sleeps until school starts? He always used to hate school. It seems he is eager t jump in.

    Sorry K-M, I have to reply again… and say: the difference between a “point and shoot” and a trained marksman is perhaps in the number of photographs the take. One gets the shot, the other is blindly scrabbling to catch it!!! Lots of love!!!

  • 22 Jenn @ Beautiful Calling // Dec 31, 2009 at 4:29 am

    I just love funny baby smiles!

  • 23 gretchen from lifenut // Dec 31, 2009 at 4:36 am

    I want to have a day just like he had. Naps and snuggles and constant attention. Hee hee.

    Gosh, he is CUTE.

  • 24 se7en // Dec 31, 2009 at 8:08 am

    Hay S – Sounds like you guys are set to have some fun!!! All the Best!

  • 25 se7en // Dec 31, 2009 at 8:09 am

    Hi J, You are so right, those totally committed smiles!!! Have a lovely day…

  • 26 se7en // Dec 31, 2009 at 8:11 am

    Hi G, Aaahh the glorious life of a 3 month old… good food, good naps, early to bed, quick response time to every request and absolutely no toilet cleaning!!! You have a good point, life doesn’t sound too shabby from his perspective does it!!! Have a fabulous day!!!
