Tax Day = Marty Day!

To thank our little tax deduction for saving us money with Uncle Sam, we're taking David to see Marty Stuart on Friday, April 15. We've been wanting to take him to see Marty Stuart perform live for awhile now, but it's hard to find concerts that aren't in bars (or at rodeos). Luckily, MB stumbled upon this upcoming show at the Manship Theatre, in Baton Rouge. The folks there were so interested in DAM's love of Marty that they gave us his ticket for half price! (I had called to see if he needed a ticket, or if babies were even allowed in the venue.) Maybe we can stop in to see Mike on Saturday before we leave. Marty and Mike all in one weekend -- DAM sure has cool parents! (To say nothing of the fact that he'll be second row, center stage, for the show.)

My new high chair

Smaller than my usual one, but--importantly--this one has a seatbelt to hold me in the chair. Plus, it folds and travels (to places like Savannah next week), and it'll later become a booster seat.

Help wanted?

Anybody need a practiced cabinet unloader? We'll let you borrow ours for a bit. He's good--and fast!

November Photo

Slow news day. Here DAM is in November. His hair is a bit longer these days, and a little on the reddish side, but otherwise he's not grown up too much. Thankfully!

Farewell to my girlfriend

This is me and Mama at Liz's farewell party. She's moving to DC.
It makes me sad.
Here I am showing off my stellar abs hoping that she'll change her mind and stay.
Even though I love her, I'm not sure about all these kisses. ???

Check out my belly!

Guitar practice!

David is fascinated by his mama's guitar, which means that when she practices he simply will not be denied, even when his daddy tries distracting him with toys up in the front of the house!

Doe's with friends

With my parents on a Saturday night. Lame, I know.
I just ate crackers and pretended not to notice the camera.
Sending off my girlfriend, Liz, in style -- with steaks from Doe's. She'll miss me.
This is me with Aunt Florence. Aunt Florence is Aunt Angie's aunt.
How crazy is that? She's like Great Aunt Florence to me!
My buddy, Will, with his parents.
And my friend, Manu, with his parents.
Mama said we all sat at the kids table together.
I thought of it more like the parents' table.

Date Night

David went out with Sandy for a dinner date. Meanwhile, his parents stayed behind and enjoyed china night at the house. Good times. Thanks, Sandy!

Happy Jan. 19

One year later, we're all smiles. And grateful.

The slide was really cool

Birthday party at Fit Zone: flashback

Puffs -- the perfect present!
I made Mama unwrap everything. It's my party. Why should I work?
We love cake!
Admiring myself in the mirror.
I'm telling you -- I LOVE cake!

Dad was terrified until the stupid end table messed up my rhythm.

Birthday party fun!

Here we are, with the Vicksburg crew! More photos to soon follow.

Look, Mama, no hands!

What? This looks dangerous to you? Why do I have to get down?

It lights up and has Spiderman on it!

There's a new sheriff in town

Happy birthday, Daddy!

Remember the good old days, a few months ago, when we were both so much younger?

Christmas decorations gone...

And Daddy's on the ceiling!

Learning about Letter D

Cookie Monster and Ernie forgot that David starts with D though. We'll have to write a letter to Sesame Street!

Practicing my moves

Been taking steps since Christmas Day, but the 'rents are usually too slow with their cameras.

Geaux Tigers

DAM is not as excited about wearing his mom's LSU baby shirt as MB is.

David helps

Problem is, he's unloading while we're loading!

Three cheers for 35 years!

Happy Anniversary, Gram and Big Daddy! 35 years of marriage, 4 kids, and now me. It just keeps getting better, doesn't it? Especially with the me part... (Pay no attention to the fact that my parents are letting me eat this crayon as they chat in the background.)

Blog Silence

Excuse the blog silence over the past couple of days. DAM's been sick. See above photo to view his pitiful sick and sleepy face. He's showing it to us often these days. A morning visit to our pediatrician today confirmed that the cold he's been battling has now developed into a double ear infection, so now we're taking "the pink medicine." Thankfully, DAM likes it as much as candy. News of improvement and Christmas photos to follow when we catch up to ourselves around here.
