Old photos...

Since Gibson's birthday last week I've begun a new set of photos on my flickr website for his THIRD YEAR! (OH MY GOD can you believe he's already 2?!?) So if you're looking for any photos from his first 2 years you can find them here:
Year One
Year Two

There's not much in the latest set because lets face it, he's only been 2 for what? 5 days now? Anyway,  I'll be adding more as the days go on. So fear not, the 'photos of the boy' menu to the right there will be filling up with the standard issue adorable in no time at all. In the meantime enjoy the links above to take a walk down memory lane and marvel at just how quickly time passes.

sleepyhead version 2.0

How can you not want to cover this face in kisses?

its my birthday

I wanted to write an entry about how quickly these past 2 years have gone by, and what an honor it is being Gibson's mom. And how I can't believe what a big boy he's becoming... But he won't get off my lap and he thinks it's hilarious to try and lick my face (I think Todd taught him that game). So I guess in many respects he remains my baby. Perhaps I'll get a chance to write the entry I have in my head later. Maybe after he goes to sleep.

Happy birthday my darling boy.

Getting Big! Fast!

With no help

With no help, originally uploaded by Venus In Furs.

He's getting really good at climbing up the chain ladder... and yet I still dread his doing so. That play structure is totally for kids twice or three times his age! Anyway, he climbs this himself, and has learned to control how fast he goes down the slide too.

(that noise in the background is a combination of traffic and running water from the sprinkler- which really exacerbates my pregnant lady bladder issues )

The mama song and dance.

The mama song and dance., originally uploaded by Venus In Furs.

He likes to list the things he knows and loves... or just perhaps his favorite words (which are words for things he knows and loves)... Mama, Dada, Woosh, Truck.... Also, running around in a circle is awesome.

gimme a beat

The best part of this is those headphones aren't plugged into anything. He just wanted to wear them. And beat box.

My mushy boy

Love, originally uploaded by Venus In Furs.
Gibson is generally a sweet little boy. Don't get me wrong, he loves to wrestle and rough house with dad (and with other children given the chance) and play in the mud and dirt, but he is quick to give kisses and hugs. And he is cuddley and kind more often than not. He likes to show his affection for soft things by stroking them and hugging them and saying 'Niiiiiiiice' (it comes from our telling him to be niiiice to the cats so often) and though he has no real understanding of my pregnancy, he accepts it when we tell him there's a baby in my tummy. He shows interest in other children and babies and will say, 'Baby' happily (also of note, he will say 'Baby' when he sees photos of himself as well). When we ask him to say hello or goodnight to the baby in my belly he will wave at my belly or say 'nightnight' and often give my belly a kiss and try to hug it. It kills me every time! And when I'm at my most run down he will come over to me and give a hug and kiss and it really makes my day just so much better.
