I think his expression here is very cute.

Something about this picture is very classy.

Watching the fishtank at the Franklin Park Zoo

Two teeth are in, another is coming in the bottom, two more are coming in the top.

If you're a fan of his eyes, here's a close-up!

Sitting in the dining room, looking content.

First two teeth! They hurt him a lot coming out. Trust us.

Bath is easy - he splashes himself clean.

Big smile!

The walker is the new favoritest toy.

I has ur beans. NOM NOM NOM



This ear tastes delicious!

Hand -> Mouth

"What? This mirror is delicious!"

Often, Ander will bend backwards while we feed him a bottle. It is very awkward.


Bored now.

Sweet potato! Yum!

"I has both of ur spoons. No, you may nots have dem back."


Even though we cut his nails, Ander scratches his face when he's asleep. Don't worry - it isn't as bad as it looks. :)

Right arm over the head! (movie)

Smiles! (movie)

Dressed for Halloween!

We went to visit our friends Jamie and Charlene. They have two dogs who wanted to eat Ander. We did not allow this to happen, but it was funny to watch the dogs try.

Wave to the camera!

In the stroller, walking to the park, asleep.

This is what we have to deal with at 3am. All babies have fussy time. Ander's fussing usually results in hiccups. (movie)

Relaxing in the upstairs office.

Ready for bed! ORLY? YA RLY.

He sleeps like this all the time. It is cute.

Active baby is active. (movie)

*yawn* (movie)

You don't say?

My fists are so fast, you no see them.

I am ready for my photo shoot.

Dad, I think you have the camera too close.

I *heart* my dads!

I see you there!

Ander in his crib, home at last. This is the best "action shot" I could get.

Ander's crib, waiting for him at home. The beautiful wall painting was done by Christine, Leah and Jade. ^_^ Thank you!

Movie of Justin getting one of the hospital bracelets for Ander.

Zombie baby! Standard procedure for newborns is to put antibiotic drops in their eyes. The goo makes him look pretty scary, though.

In the hospital.
