He's growing up ...

27 February 2013


and I hate it.

Oh ... obviously we're big fans of big fat chunky monkey babies around here but if someone were to invent a newborn growth stunting machine .... I'd be tempted to keep the celery stalk legs, slit eyes, and pterodactyl squawks around for a little while longer.

Theo will be two months on February 30th and he has very few tricks to show for it. He smiles rarely, cries sometimes, and flails his t-rex arms about always.

If I had a penny for every time someone responded, "like the chipmunk?" upon hearing his name he would have enough lettuce to purchase his mom a tube of dollar store lipstick.

Happy 1/6 of a year, Chippy.



*And if you care to click ... Julio at 2 months.

  1. When we named our daughter Olive, everyone said "like Olive Oyl!" and because her sisters name is Hazel, "oh, you have a green theme". I didn't love it. Hopefully the chipmunk comments go away soon.

  2. a.dor.a.ble!

    I love his hair. And his smile. And his cheeks. And his nose. And his fingers. Yup, you've got a handsome little man on your hands!

    God bless!

  3. The arm flailing- oh...when they punch themselves in the face? It's probably wrong how much I love it!

    Julio and Chippy have opposite face shapes (obviously his being yours and hers being that of Simone) but the mouths they are the same. Sibling cuteness overload.

  4. Oh how I wish you could toss him on a plane and fly him over to me. There is a dearth of newborns in my general vicinity and I'm dying to squeeze him!

  5. Isn't it crazy how much they change in 8 weeks

  6. It's hard not to love the fleeting flailing limb stage! He's changed so much already, I love his sweet hair!

  7. Oh my gosh he is so cute! I love seeing how different all of your kids look. I don't LOVE the newborn stage (I like them when they get chubby & mobile around 6-9 months) but you made me miss it a little!

  11. So adorable! I just love brown on baby boys and that hair is killer. Oh and my son will be 6 months on February 31st... what a horrible day to have a half birthday on.

  12. Um, I will not say whether or not Mike said something along the lines of "now all they need is an Alvin and it will be complete!" I glared at him, don't worry.

    Seriously, I LOVE him!! And I could also go for a growth stunting machine for Lucy and a some sort of time travel machine that could bring Naomi and Bernadette back to their cute little newborn ages. Toddlers drive me positively crazy.

    1. Just wait until they are teenagers. Then we will talk.

  13. Since February 30th doesn't exist, he can never turn 2 months old! You've got your wish :)

  14. Hehe I get a kick out of the squawks, although ours resemble Velociraptor squawks, but only Elizabeth's these days. At least we always know when it's time to run because the T-rex is coming!

    If humans and dinosaurs had ever coexisted, that's why they would have kept babies around - to scare off the predators!

    His smile is adorable, if infrequent. Just makes the rare occasion more special, right?

  15. The newborn stage is so darn cute. I love the little t-rex arms!

  16. Ahhh he is too cute! Def not the cure for my baby fever. The newborn stage is my favorite as well-so squishy!!

  17. I'll also invest in R&D on that baby stunting machine.

    Theo is too cute. Add me to the would love to squeeze list. :)

  18. I never once thought of the chipmunks :) He is too cute!

  19. Like the chipmunk? Why are people so dense? That never even crossed my mind.

    My son's name is Peter and a lot of people will say Peter, Peter pumpkin eater? Um, no...SAINT Peter!

  20. Hey, at 2 months little Theo has MUCH more hair than my 14 month old. Work it, Theo.

  22. He's growing up too fast! Tell him to stop it already!!!

  23. He is SOOOOOO cute, and I TOTALLY agree with you on the growing up part. They grow up too fast. We also loved babies. I have only recently started to embrace the fact that our youngest is 7 SEVEN years old. It's very fun, but those baby stages are just so wonderful.....which is why I'm glad you are still on the internet, still posting. You obviously love them as much as I did, and it's so fun to re-live those VERY BUSY years with you, and rejoice in seeing another mama enjoy being a mom! Keep up the GREAT work!

  26. Oh sweet goodness he is too cute!!! I just love him!

    McCartney wants to go on a baby date with Theo the next time you guys come to town! Perhaps some fro-yo?
