I Heart Faces: Bust a Gut

My son is at that perfect age where everything warrants one of those wonderful belly laughs.  He loves looking at faces, especially his 'friend' in the mirror.  Kyton and daddy shared a wonderful moment looking into the mirror together. I'm so fortunate that even though the original image is on my lost hard drive, I had this backed up online.  p313093543-6

The theme at I heart faces is laughing.

Thanksgiving Vacation

We spent the last week up north with our family for the holiday. My hard drive containing all of my pictures crashed, but here are a few images taken after the crash.  I do have some of my favorite photos backed up, but not all.  I am hoping that the data can be saved. 

Believe it or not this is my dad smiling and excited about Kyton.

Ky is at that baby stage where his mouth hurts and he likes chewing on anything he can, including fingers.  He also loves touching anything he can.  My sister let him put his hand in her mouth while she put her hand in his mouth. Silly baby, silly aunt.  Remember when we did the now and then photos?  Rebecca mention that this would make a funny now and then when Kyton is about 15 years old!

Praying for Chaia

praying for chaia (1 of 1)
A couple that went to Mount Union with us had a baby that is about Kyton's age.  Their sweet little girl has been in the hospital with a rare genetic disease of the heart.   Amazingly she is defying the odds.  Chaia’s parents has asked for pictures of those that are praying for their little girl.  This weekend we were at Downtown Disney and took this shot in front of the big balloon. 
If you pray, would you please say a little prayer for Chaia?

Go Steelers!

Our Baby has been Accepted to College

In the mail we received a package containing  an acceptance certificate to Mount Union College.  He was also given a bib with the school seal, and a baby t-shirt.  Somehow they knew what size he is, they were anticipating he’d have the build of a football player!  So it’s official our son has been accepted to college, and if he wants to go anywhere besides the school where his parents met and fell in love, tough luck.  Actually when it comes time we will support whatever choice our son makes. 
We had a little photo session with Kyton in his shirt.

Do you secretly, or not so secretly hope that your child will follow in your footsteps?

Jumping Boy

We decided that our energetic boy needed a something else to entertain him and strengthen his muscles.

He absolutely loves the jumper!

On Friday we celebrated 3 of our friend’s birthdays along with 28 friends at Kobe.  If you are not familiar with the restaurant, they cook Japanese food in front of you.  We thought it would be fun for Kyton since it is entertaining.

The picture below is Kyton sitting in a high chair watching the chef light onions on fire.  He’s not sure about the whole thing.  Kobe (6 of 8)

About halfway through the cooking of the meal Kyton decided it was too noisy for him.  As soon as we left the table and went outside he was fine, but once we returned he was upset again.  We took turns, along with a friend eating and giving Kyton a break.

I’ve seen parents that had to miss events to care for their fussy child, and I remember thinking how bad I felt for the parent.  The thing is when it’s my own kid, I don’t mind.  Making him happy and spending time with him is worth missing a little bit of a meal with friends.

Kyton’s first visit to Disney World

The weather is beautiful here, finally!  We took the opportunity to meet some of Kyton’s baby friends at Epcot for the food and wine festival. This was Kyton’s first visit to Disney, assuming the visits while pregnant don’t count.  Dylan was not able to make it due to a conflict with the Steelers game.  He was also drumming and would have been late.

With 5 strollers, 5 babies, 5 mommy’s and 3 daddy’s we didn’t make it anywhere quickly.

I thought this was cute, the pics are of the screen, but they took a picture of our babies on our laps, and make them into astronauts. On the Space Ship Earth ride, they took a picture with flash, hence the funny baby expressions.  I almost never use flash with Kyton.

Fall Fun

It’s sort of strange that this year we have a little one to enjoy all of the Halloween activities. This year we didn’t have our annual Halloween bon fire, and didn’t even carve a pumpkin.  With the big transition, things have a little off this year. 

One of Kyton’s baby friends had a party for the kids.

What did you do for fall, or Halloween?
