Someone tends to crash out for power naps on our late afternoon strolls
... a crashed out monkey :)
... about 20 seconds after that first shot I snapped again and this is what I found... :) testtest15485
taking our evening stroll and Hartly was awfully quiet... I snapped a shot behind me to see what was up...
in other words - Hart likes PB&J!
... it was his very 1st raw unsalted almond butter and organic farmgrown blackberry jam on extra thin wholewheat crust bread sandwhich :)
but he was sooo happy! and...
I swore I would never be one of those moms that even allowed for such disgustingness, let alone take photos of it!...
right before naptime
snuggling stuffed animal
walking around with Grandma Jinky at Jordan's 6th birthday party!
he was pretty tired here
Papi's stand up board (and Hartly signing "potty" as he sits on one of his many portable potties)
pretty (he signs "bird", flower", & "tree" when he looks at it - all things in picture)
going potty before bed and admiring his new nap night light from Grandma Jinky and Grandpa
look at that perfect chunk of thigh
Mama clearly loves sleeping photos
Hart's "sister" would probably like to play the piano too
If Hartly had a twin sister, this is what she might look like
11 months old - visiting some of Mama's old students
Hart loves wearing Papi's hat... even when it falls over his face he often just leaves it there
Hart LOVED the monkeys! He kept giving kisses and signing "dog"
Megan, Grant, and baby Audrey (not pictured) came over to play at the beach :)
friends at the beach
Mama watching over her boy
Mae(7 months), Sam(10 months), & Hartly(11 months)
babies at the beach
... he would crash out and I would reach for bottle and he would half wake up to grab and put back in mouth. Finally, I took it, he half reached and then rolled over into deep sleep :)
This day he was so tired. He kept asking to get in his crib but he was also still hungry. I gave him bottle in crib (which I never do) and watched as he kept falling in and out of sleep...
Hart thinks its funny
at 11 months if you ask Hart where is your foot, he picks it up high in air and shows you. Here he is comparing his foot with Papi's foot
trying to share his apple with a Papi that was in middle of working
eating his apple
signing one of his favorite things in the world! "apple"
trying to wind things down...
dance! dance! dance!

Baby Ducks (Hart kept signing "bird" happily)
Teacher Leah came over to play (and touch our happy buddha!)
I LOVE the water!
splash! splash! splash!
11 months and still jammin on the piano
he was happy then! (strangely enough, the Dr had told me before often, when babies are sick/teething, a bath will soothe them - crazy Hart knew and asked for it! Yah for Sign Language!)
he kept signing "bath! bath!' so... we filled up the tub in the middle of the afternoon and with his hand in his mouth against sore tooth, we climbed in...
Hartly Jose RARELY cries... it is soooo sad when he does. His tooth that is coming in was bugging him BAD here :(
combed hair for wedding
Allie's wedding (11 months old)
cutest butt ever!
NOTHING cuter than a babies butt!
3 Gong hits for Papi Graduating AU Law School

It was a sunny day - Mama shared her shades
Mama thought I looked good in her Jackie O's
I think I look good in Mama's hat
10 months and already my first shiner (that's what happens when trying to walk - lots of falling)
Sooo... Papi loves to rock climb and got this idea I might too...
I'm only 10 months so I kinda feel like this might be asking a lot from me!
But... my grip surprisingly, is kinda good...
what's up! I GOT this! I don't even need their help! (10 months)
Special moment captured
My future Kravie
This is my FAVORITE book That's Not My Pony!
It's great every single time (even when I make mommy read it 7 xs in a row and I keep signing "book" and "more" I never get tired of it!)
That book is the best!
Guess where we went today? The Fair! I was too little for a lot of rides :(
But they let me on the teacups! I loved going around and around...
Hmmm... I wonder if they will let me on the Ferris Wheel (probably not!)
Oh my goodness! They let us ALL on!
Wow! That's high (Mom, loosen up your grip!)
Mommy has got a good hold of me
I love it up here!

Happy Birthday Grandma Jinky!
We are outta here! "Baby you can drive my car... and baby I love you! Beep, Beep! Beep, Beep, Yeah!"
Grandma Jinky is just like the rest of them - she LOVES to kiss me!
I love my grandma Jinky!
More scrunched up my nose is, happier I am!

Teething DOES bite!

Kickin' with my boy, Sam the Man December 2010
You see!!!?! My 1st tooth!!! My mom can't stop squealing she is so excited!! See it!?! It's my bottom left. I keep rubbing my tongue against it because it feels so strange and drool hasn't let up! (December 13, 2010)
Mommy made a lot of friends when she was a teacher. This is Cam-uh-lamb-un-ding-dong and his mom, Christy. They had us over for a delicious dinner and gifts!!

ceiling fans captivate my attention for many minutes at a time (just shy 5 months - still love our Baby G's but not for nightime)
Who is that handsome fella always starring back at me? (few days shy 5 months)
This is my new buddy, Auden. He's older than me by about 4 months but still lets me hang with him.
I am now 4 1/2 months and teething. Celery and carrots keep me distracted and help a little with the soreness.
I'm getting ready to crawl. I am practicing propping myself up... then I just collapse and roll over laughing
Don't be fooled by this photo. This is actually the face I make when I like something. Mmmm Avecado! My first food at almost 5 months
mommies hands are still bigger than mine at 19 weeks
I have now perfected the art of holding my own bottle. In no time at all I won't need those two silly people that are with me constantly!
So, mom and I thought Papi was crazy when he suggested WE (Waste Elimination) for a 4 month old. But, I actually am training them pretty well and haven't soiled a diaper in weeks!
My first election. I tend to side with my mother most of the time on politics.
Macy (almost Glosserman) loves me after only meeting me once. I love her already too!

Mommy in her beautiful grown up tutu
Grandma Jinky buys me fun and silly things
Grandma Jinky's Jimmy Jumper from when she was little. Can you believe how big I'm getting (this was at 19 weeks when Mom and I slept over when daddy went to San Fran for night)
Hart's very first time seeing TV (4 months old) - only reason why he was allowed was bc daddy was on :)
Another look at Hartly watching Papi on TV (he seems to like it) ps - Hart is now bop (pacifier) free!
It's true. He does.
Look Ma - no hands!
I never get tired of watching this boy sleep
Mama and Hartly getting ready to see Papi's big appearance as Flag Boy for the Redskins on TV!
...he gets really upset when you stop in the middle of his feedings to burp him! (otherwise though, yeah, he's pretty much always happy!)
For those of you who think Hartly is always happy, he is not...
