When Mikey gets too excited, he's started saying, "Woah!" a whole buncha times. It's dang cute. In the tub tonight, he was going nuts! I pulled out my phone and took this video, and of course because there was a camera, he didn't do it quite so much. This video does, however, show a few other Mikey-isms.

  • 0:03 -- you can see and hear him do this little mouth grunty noise he makes when he's hungry. I can't even mimic the sound
  • 0:15 and 1:35 -- he claps with toys in his hands
  • 0:31 -- he sorta does his "woah!"
  • 0:44 -- he does a fake cough
  • 0:47 -- he lets out a loud "aaahhhhhh"
  • 1:42 -- he gets so excited, he has to smile big, kick his feet, and bounce
  • 1:50 -- he gives a better "woah! woah!"
  • 2:06 -- his dad says "oh, goodness" in baby talk for the billionth time
  • 2:16 -- he gives a little more concerned "woah!"
Yeah... I know I'm a dork, but I just love everything about this kid!

Quick tip No. 11

Wikipedia is really all about philosophy.

I just found this out from; specifically, this comic's alt tag text.
"Wikipedia trivia: if you take any article, click on the first link in the article text not in parenthesis or italics  and then repeat, you will eventually end up at Philosophy."
I tried it twice. With the speed of light (took 8 clicks), and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (took 15 clicks), and it totally happened. (As a side note, what does it say about me that those were the first two articles I searched for when testing this hypothesis? Your comments are appreciated.)

The Brain

So the iPad has that weirdy setting for taking pictures that distorts everything, right? Well, I took a picture of Mikey a while ago, and it totally looked like The Brain (from Pinky and The Brain). What do you think?

Quick tip No. 10

When using eye drops (or having someone else put them in because you can't bring yourself to put drops in your own eyes) it is probably best not to close your eyes so tight your lashes can barely be seen, or to shake your head back and forth so your eyes are inaccessible.

Hayley does this. It's kinda funny. But she has pink eye, the poor thing, so I have to put eye drops in her eyes 4 times a day. I seem to have to remind her a few times that I don't even have the lid off of the dropper.

Happy Mother's Day, Hayley!

I just love ya! You're the best Momma for Mikey boy that could ever be. You love him so much, it's palpable at times. Just the mere thought of him can make you cry, laugh, or just smile. You love him, smile at him, play with him, feed him, change him, and protect him. You let him nap on you, play with you (even when he gets rough and goes for the face), and you can tell how much he loves you. You don't need to do anything but walk in the room and that little guy lights up, smiles, laughs, and gets so excited he can't help but get those hands and feet going.

We love you so much and hope you have a great day today!


Your boys.

And here's one of my favorite videos of all time.
