Today we got some packages from Uncle Trevor, Aunt Michelle, and Atticus. When I told Marshall this was his, he was pretty impressed. He carried it around by the ribbon for awhile. We cut it off and then he decided to stake his claim by turning it into ikea-esque furniture! What is he watching? Yo Gabba Gabba, of course!
Sorry this one is crazy - wouldn't turn. :)
Kneeling on it . . .
His whole self on it! This picture is my favorite. SO FUNNY! We could photoshop it so he's sledding down a hill! I love that silly bug. Hope it wasn't breakable! ;)
For those of you who got one of our CRAZY late Christmas cards last year, check out Marshall in Daddy's Bronco-Claus hat this year! He is GINORMOUS!
This is one of our favorite pictures. Marshall LOVES to stand around with his hands behind his back. We were trying to figure out where this little mannerism comes from a few weeks ago. I know where its from . . . my dad! (You know you've seen him walk around with his hands behind his back!)
He is sleepy in this picture, but we still love him. Sorry about the dirty shirt. He's 1. It happens. Regularly.
I know, posting Halloween at Christmas?!?! Well, welcome to my life. :) Nana bought Marshall an ADORABLE lion costume, which he loved - until Halloween. SO, we put him in his batman jammies and took him to trick-or-treat at Grandma and Grandpa McDonald's house. (This is before it got cold and Marshall learned to wear shoes.)
Marshall in the spooky pretend graveyard.
Help mom, I'm trapped!
He really liked playing in the graveyard. This was the only stop for trick-or-treating. He hasn't figured out candy yet, so the thrill just wasn't there. He spent the evening watching Tinkerbell.
One of Marshall's favorite songs from Yo Gabba Gabba is the banana song. I guess it really had an influence on him, because that child tried to eat a banana every day in October!
I love how excited he is to have his favorite treat in this picture! When he'd eat lunch, hed raise his hands above his head and wave them yelling, "anana!" (yes, without the b) Does he still do this? No. Does he still eat bananas? Are you kidding? He's a typical toddler! Favorite foods change regularly.
SO, I haven't posted in a LONG time, and Marshall is being good and I've gotten a lot done on my hat orders today, so here come a BUNCH of catch-up posts. I got a good deal on Little Tykes toys at Toys R Us back in October and this was a toy Marshall picked himself - I wonder if it has anything to do with watching mommy and daddy play guitar hero?
BIG smile! This happens to be his favorite book - Old MacDonald had a Barn. He loves it because at the end there is a TIGER! E-I-E-I-ROAR!
I have so many posts to post. Lots of cute pictures of Marshall chair-surfing in his jammies and trick or treating in his batman jammies. (A lot of jammies around here . . . mom in hers all day because that fetus is getting bigger and she does NOT want to wear maternity pants . . . ) Why am I postin this? FOR MICHELLE! Check out my blog list. I found a special blog just for you . . . . THE YO GABBA GABBA BLOG! That's right! ;)
Today Aunt Michelle and Atticus hung out at our house. It was fun. Sorry grandmas, we didn't get pictures of the boys together because they just weren't too sure about each other yet. Maybe at Thanksgiving! Atticus needed a nap and Marshall was too interesting, so I took Marshall to the park. We need to go lots before it gets too cold. And it wasn't even raining today! The swings are still Marshall's favorite. Look how bug he's getting!
This picture is funny. He looks so philosophical. He was really just watching a person walk by the park with a dog. We had a lot of fun walking around and crawling around in the woodchips too. Marshall sure loves to go outside and play!
