Some that worked...

Apparently, you have to take 200 pictures to get a few that are just wonderful. Thank goodness for digital!

Cannon Cannon Bo Bannon Banana Fanna Fo Fannon!

Today our boy turns 4!!! Very hard to believe. I'm not sure if he seems so huge because he really is, or if it's because he has this teeny tiny little sister around now. Probably a little of both.
I remember crying when I found out I was having a boy. I grew up with girls! I didn't know how to do a boy baby! Maybe I thought he would come out scratching himself and playing sports or something. I thought I couldn't be tender with a boy, or bond, or relate. BOY, was I wrong! The second I saw him I felt peace. I felt a love and a closeness I coudn't have imagined. He was everything I never knew I always wanted, and he just gets better and better. He is smart, witty, funny, energetic, loving, and so much more.
Happy happy birthday to our Cannon boy!

Does anyone know how to get an almost 4 year old and a newborn to pose for pictures???? Dang! Should we put peanut butter in their mouths next time like they did with Mr. Ed?

One Month!

Have you ever been too tired to notice that a whole month has gone by? Geez!

I stole this idea from my pal Erica. (I hope that's okay!) She took a picture of her baby girl by a stuffed animal each month. I'm excited to see the progress. Isn't that a cute bear? Aunt Liz MADE it! She is the best!

Boy, am I glad Cannon has his Daddy to do "boy" things with! My idea of sledding is a leisurely trip down a smooth, short slope with some nice hot chocolate waiting for you at the bottom. Not these two! Cannon was loving going off the jumps!
Then Cannon crashed off one of the jumps and planted his cute little face in that hard, packed snow. Greg said there was a lot of blood. Mostly from Cannon's chapped lips cracking. I'm so glad I wasn't there! I probably would have rushed him right to the ER! That boy wiped off in the snow and continued sledding! Good for him!
He likes this picture because you can still see some of the blood on his face. Gross! What a boy. I'm always thinking about Nature vs. Nurture. Some stuff is definitely just already in the DNA.
