HUCK AND THE BOOSTER


huck had his 15 month check up and on tuesday morning. i packed him a pbh for the road, and that sandwich. the man would not put the sandwich down. he held it in the waiting room, he held it all the way through the weighing and measuring, he kept a tight grip on it during all three of his shots (he did manage to smear peanut butter on the doctor's sweater. atta boy!) . . . also he took his shots like a cowboy. i was so proud. 

so i took this series of photos while we were waiting for the doctor to show up. fifteen months! i want to kiss fifteen months. it is so fun--and so exhausting--and it seems like every time i think he can't get any better than he is right now he just does. i want to remember forever the sound his little feet made slapping against the tile as he made his laps around the exam room, pausing only occasionally to take a phone call on his sandwich, stopping only once to lay his head on my knee and give my leg a little hug. if i could bottle up this kid . . . i mean it, this kid is it


(i did not intentionally dress to match the germy exam room toys, but now that i know that it's a possibility...)

p.s. huck's new favorite thing in the whole world is little einsteins. the way his face lights up when he hears that theme song is the best. i love how obediently he pats his lap and raises his arms in the air when they ask him to help rocket blast off. i watch him watch little einsteins and i'm convinced i need twenty more! (okay, maybe two more.) 



anyway, we've decided he loves the show so much on account of how his parents are in it.



you see it i know you do!

  3. He is the cutest thing with his sandwich! Isn't is amazing how much joy can radiate from such little people? Oh and my 18 month old just discovered little einsteins and adores it too!

  4. My girls are 7 and they named my Dad's truck Rocket when they were 18 mos old. They still (along with my parents) pat their lap and "blast off" when they go for a ride. It's the best cartoon except for The Wonder Pets. They rule.

    And yes you are June and Leo... Halloween costumes... You could make Huck into rocket or a violin.

  7. Oh man. I love this. It reminds me of my little JackJack so much. He talks on any phone he can find, and he looovveess The Little Einsteins too! Jack goes crazy when he knows it's time to make that rocket blast off.. Little boys are where it's at. You are right!

  17. what I see is that even though huck looks exactly like your dad (see above post ;) that in the photo of him holding the sandwhich at the doctors.. he looks just like your husband! my kids do that - they look like their great aunt from my mothers side and then the next thing they look like my husbands sister when she was young. DNA is very amazing!

  20. Ok I just recently found your blog and I want to say something to adequately describe how I see your baby, but they're all food words and that would sound weird right? I'll settle for HOLY MOLY HE IS SO PRECIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!

    My daughter discovered Little Einstein when she was 2 and now at almost-6 she still loves it! We even had a Leo doll for awhile -- that got a bit old...

    Happy Happy FUN is going on here and I'm so happy to have found the party!

  21. The award for least annoying disney jr. show goes to little einsteins. No contest. My 20 month old daughter started watching obssesively a few months ago. Her first time on a plane, she immediately started pat pat patting during take off (blast off). It was priceless. P.S. New reader. Your kid is super cute and sounds like a blast.

    my three-year-old loves little einstein too. and admittedly, i have oddly taken a liking for the theme song. it beats the heck out of mickey mouse any day.

  24. oh, i love this post! Huck and his little sandwich are irresistibly adorable. his expressions and mannerisms remind me so much of my almost one-year-old daughter that I sometimes laugh out loud at the thought my daughters expressions when I see Huck's photos. such a cutie pie!
