My Cute Kid

I recently had a request for more pictures of me on my blog but I just can't do it. I am pasty and nasty and fat and ugly. If I think of any other appropriate adjectives I will add those in later. At least I'm not so zitty anymore. Anyway, this is of course a post about my little man. He is so precious lately even though he is cutting teeth and irritable. Whenever I ask him who is in my tummy he pulls up my shirt and gives my belly a kiss and makes a feeble but cute attempt at saying, "Violet." Sometimes he will do it randomly without me even asking and it totally melts my heart. Plus he is just such a cool little dude. I bought Michael a skateboard for Christmas and it has quickly become Jack's skateboard instead. Here are some random pics including some of the beanie I knit for him last week. It was my first project and it totally looks like it. But it was still fun to learn to knit and it makes me excited to get better!

Oh I love the name Violet. And the belly rubs from a toddler are indeed priceless.

He's a cutie pie. Hey Kat this is Sarah at Rubberball, I'm finally getting around to sending images from Hawaii, can you please give me your address so I can pop yours in the mail. My email is sarahfaubus@gmail.com. Thanks!

Your beanie turned out awesome! Are you making Violet a blanket too? BTW I love that name! Way cute.
Are you still teaching at the gym?

I love knitting but can only do scarves because I have no clue how to get the yarn to go anywhere other than a straight line.
Jack is a little stuntman, I can't believe you can get him to stay on the skateboard without freaking out, that's so cool...and BTW if you wanna see fat and nastay...check out my most recent update. I am scary looking but am so not in denial about it!

Jack is so cute! He looks really tall too! ^ ^

Cute name! It was one of our choices for a first or middle name, but we ended up with Nola and Jason just has to have "Sunshine" as a middle name even though Violet was one that I threw out multiple times! Guess it works better for you anyway!!

And I doubt you can be anymore pale than me... you moved from Hawaii to AZ, I live in Ohio! Post some darn pictures!

Jack has gotten so big!! Very cute pictures and I can't imagine you ugly and fat...and don't go there with the pasty! I'm a redhead with fair skin...I don't wanna hear it! lol

Camille said...

Hey, the beanie looks great! I would never guess that was your first project. How come your pictures always look so dreamy? Mine definitely look like someone took a fast picture but you've got a more professional look to yours...

He's better at skateboarding than I am. I can't even stand up on those darn things, though I wish I could. Hey in a picture below your little boy is being thrown in the air and it looks like he is 10 feet high that is so crazy. Does he really go that high or is it an optical illusion?

I can't believe that Jack is no longer a baby! He's such a cutie! Are we going to see you soon? :)

I also wanted to say that since I too am having a girl, you send any "duds" my way. Like if you somehow messed up on a burp cloth or hooter hider and its just not up to your standards, my standards are far lower due to my lack of skills. I doubt you messed up on anything though. Ugh!
