M. Giant's
Throwing stuff at the internet to see what sticks

Wednesday, August 24, 2005  


one of us one of us one of us…

You probably think that I took this picture just because I wanted to capture one of those fleeting but adorable moments. Actually, he'd been standing and drooling, frozen in this pose for more than ten hours by the time this photo was taken. Weirdest thing. Fortunately, the flash snapped him out of it.

You put a shot of Jack in this, right?

M. Small, the first time we let him hold his own bottle. He'd been trying to hold his own for a few months, but when we let him, he prefers to use it as a percussion instrument. He'll drink from it for an ounce or two, and then he gets bored and we have to take over. Looks like it'll be another couple of weeks before he's ready for his own apartment.

How much you pay for this nag, anyway?

M. Small's latest getaway attempt.

When my lawyer gets here, you are going to be soooo sorry.

Which ends like all the others.

I'm gonna need a bigger washcloth.

Shit like this is going to completely redefine dating in the twenty-first century. We won't be able to humiliate M. Small in front of his future girlfriends with this, because with any luck at all they will have already seen it.

You're just getting me above the waist, right?

But wait till they find out that his shorts matched his hat.

Rock over London, rock on Chicago.

And here, of course, is the photo for the cover of the debut album.

Yes, God?

Looking at this angelic child, you'd never know that his one overriding goal is to completely tear down our entire house.

Today's best search phrase: "www.i let a tiny fart." I can't believe nobody has snapped up that URL already.

That is one beautiful and healthy kid! The last picture almost looks like a painting, with the lighting and his look. You guys must be doing something right.

And can I tell you how excited I am that you are recapping Rome?

What a sweet looking baby!

Oh my God, he's just unbelievably cute. How long before he's doing GAP ads and supporting Mommy and Daddy in a style to which they could become accustomed?

Aw, he's like a real little person!

Those little fat dimples around his wrist make me want to gobble him up.

That picture of him with his mommy is great.

Wow, he used to fit in a coffee mug* and now he's all Chunky McChunkenburger! Chunkity chunkity chunk chunk chunk...


*not really. A Thermos, I bet he would have.

What a big strong man! He looks like such a happy baby.

Why is it that babies curl their toes when they sit up? I've always wondered about that...

Oh, and what a beautiful mommy he has!

Love the alt tags you used on each pic :)

My favorite picture is the last one, because he really does look like he's thinking "Yes, God?". Sweet.

Not a baby any more. Babyhood is over. And you thought it would never end... M. Small is now officially a toddler. And a darn cute one!

You will now turn around and sneeze, and the next time you look, he will have become M. Teenager. Tempus fugit.

Absolute goodness!

Oh, look at M. Small and his mom. Too cute for words. He's going to get all of the ladies.

Your little boy is darling. I love the arm dimples. My kids had them as babies. But I warn you, one day you will suddenly notice they are gone, and it will break your heart.

That is one handsome child. He has a great look! Thanks for posting the pics.

M. Giant. I do believe my ovaries just exploded from all that delightful baby goodness.

M. Small is one thoroughly adorable little man!

Oh. My. God.

Your son is totally going to marry my niece. I will brook no arguments on this.

Two things re: Strat. 1) Although a rare phenomenon, kitties can stop being diabetic. I discovered this by my been-on-insulin-for-3-years kitty suddenly going into insulin shock. He's fine now and eats like a horse and no longer gets shots. 2) Hyperthyroidism occurs in middle-aged to older kitties. It causes weight loss and vomiting. Just some things to be aware of as your kitties age. Also, your human kid is really cute, but I miss the kitty photos and your blogs ranging from gnome theft to CSI Sesame Street.

So, like, he's outgrown every stitch of clothing, right?

Email me where he's at size wise now. Our little darling has now conquered Every Kind of Clothing Closure, so we are forced to duct tape his diapers to him.

Funny, autercakes just hasn't wanted to come over to our house for a few days...
