Tummy Ball

I don't know how "Tummy ball" started but Bowman insists on wearing his basketball under his shirt. He picks up his ball and holds his shirt and says "ubble ubble" (open open) and then walks around with the hugest grin. He thinks it's hilarious and we agree!

Love. My love for this tiny person, my son, amazes me.

I fall in love with him over and over and over again; each day, minute, each moment. Head over heels for this golden curly headed angel. He is sunshine incarnate.

And his Dada is more than I could ever ask for in a man, best friend and partner.
We share an unfaltering love and promise to see us through challenge.
My dream boat.

Happy Half-Birthday!!

Our Bowman turned 18 months on the 16th!! We had a special little celebration this evening in honor of him, complete with cinnamon gelato with candles (pronounced "tee-kole" in Bomease:) he was first mesmerized by the candles and then by the creamy gelato. Mama and Dada love you Mister Man!

I couldn't resist a few half-birthday presents... arriving soon.

Todays masterpiece

Frame worthy!

I'd say our Bowman can make an impressively beautiful mess!

Thank you wonderful Caitlin for managing the process... and the clean-up!;)

He's baaaaaack

Our little ham loves his steamed green beans.

Oh my goodness, our boy is back in business full force! He was hilarious this evening; so vivacious and spunky!

Corn on the cob is his FAVORITE!
He just can't get enough of this dead laptop, and I can't get enough of those golden CURLS! :)

Hard at work

Just another day at the office...
He goes nuts every time he sees our laptop so I pulled out an old one that no longer takes a charge and he was beyond ecstatic! He immediately went to "work" typing the keys and pressing all the buttons and babling to himself.

Out for a cruise in the neighborhood discovering treasures to collect in his pail.

Look out Pollock

Working on our Abstract Expressionism at home this morning :-) He's so sweet and it breaks my heart that this afternoon we found out he has a double ear infection and pneumonia! :C

On Tuesday we took him to the doctor to check out a cough he was developing after a fever showed up. It turned out he had a left ear infection and possibly a secondary infection in his chest. Our Dr prescribed amoxicillin and she told us to keep her updated on him. Well after two rough nights of tha fever showing back up and a message from Caitlin saying he woke up from his nap early with a fever my instinct told me, no screamed at me, to take him in pronto! I took him back this afternoon and it turned out the amoxicillin did nothing an his right ear is also infected! we had to have his chest x-rayed and sure enough he has pneumonia!! He got a super strength antibiotic injection and switched from amoxicillin to augmentin to take oraly .
With all of this going on he's been still such a sweet happy guy, my poor sick baby.
The injection is supposed to make a huge difference in 24 hrs.

Bowman has two "Mama's"

Bowman loves his Mama, both of them... huh??

For some reason Bowman has decided to call both me and AJ "Mama". He knows that AJ is "Dada" and has called him that for months, but lately he just prefers to say "Mama".

It's hilarious- AJ walks into the room and Bowman proudly exclaims "MaaaMaa!!!!" with such excitement and enthusiasm. I crack up. What makes it even more hilarious is that AJ doesn't really think it's that funny.

I told AJ that being called "Mama" is an honor and he should feel very proud.

Oh and for some reason only Bowman knows, he started calling Caitlin "Dada" last week. Sorry AJ :)

Cute pics from a few weeks ago thanks to Caitlin :)

Nature time on Sunday

This morning we had the best time playing outdoors at a big park in our neighborhood.
We ran around in the open grass field, hunted for pine cones, marveled at the huge redwood trees, got our hands in the dirt and chased squirrels. It made for some very fulfilling family time, great fun was had by all :)

Baby Ball

Somebody loves his basketball hoop that Santa brought. Bowman just gets it, and isn't shy about giving himself an exciting round of applause after dumping the ball through the hoop. 17 month old baby ball is fun stuff.
