Facebook Roundup 8/20/12

To celebrate being nine months old today, Joseph learned to clap. Yay!

Samuel, reading "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" to Joseph in a cowboy voice: (after the Saturday binge) "Gosh dangit! Did I eat all that food?" (when he wasn't a little caterpillar anymore) "He was the fattest caterpillar you ever did see!"

At almost 9 months old, baby has gotten VERY good at climbing the stairs. We generally allow it (with a spotter) but he's SO fast that sometimes he's a good way up by the time I sprint over there! #mamaneedsadrink

Joseph's favorite book is Sandra Boynton's "Moo, Baa, La La La". We read it aaaaaallll the time. Went to the State Fair yesterday, pointed to an ACTUAL cow, and said, "The cow says, "Moo!" Blew his mind.

Sitting here listening to Pandora and web-surfing while Samuel sweeps the floor and washes dishes: BWAHAHAHAHAHA! This is why you have kids: free slave labor! Oh, relax, as soon as the baby quits nursing and wakes up, I might consider accomplishing something, too.

How am I supposed to get anything done when I have this baby to tickle?

While not always convenient, Joseph's current neediness stage IS cute. He will be happily playing UNTIL he catches a glimpse of me and then his thought process apparently goes something like this: "Hey! That Mama-person still exists! Who knew? Mama! I NEED THE MAMA! MAMA MAMA MAMA MAMAMAMAMAMA!"

The latest in baby fashions

Since it's summer (and a hot one, at that) I'm pretty much on board with Amber (Crappy Mama)'s opinion that cloth diaper = complete outfit. See?

trying to breach the portal to the Land of Lego (brother's room)
I break into Forbidden Playland, A.K.A., big brother's room!

However, Samuel decided that he needed a little more. With the scraps from my T-shirt refashion, he produced this:

Samuel + baby + fabric scraps =
I play air guitar!

And now he looks like a refugee from an 80s music video in which rival gangs of street ruffians learn to get along through the healing powers of choreography.
