New Hat

You may have heard on the news that much of the South woke up covered in ice this morning. We didn't get it too bad here in Austin, but it was enough to make it necessary for us (and when I say us I mean Jon) to chip away at a thin layer in order to get our car doors open:

Ice on the hood.

The cold morning was a perfect opportunity to try out Amery's new hat, courtesy of Grandma G:

Can I just brag a little?

I recently visited the website of my awesome photographer friend - Lyndsay Stradtner of Life in Motion Photography - because I heard she'd made some changes to it. Lyndsay shot my maternity photos and Amery's newborn photos, and she was recently named 2008 Best Kids Photographer by the Austin Chronicle. Lo and behold our little man is featured not once, not twice, but three times. If you want to see them, go to Lyndsay's website (link above, then click on Website), and in the portfolio section at the bottom of the screen, click on "brand new." Amery appears in pictures 1, 4, and 5. While you're there, take a minute to check out the rest of her amazing work.

My Boys

I took this shot of my two favorite boys (three with Kona) before work on Friday...

...and because I couldn't decide which of these is cuter I'm posting both...

Stuff he does like


Going for walks in the baby carrier:

The Jumperoo:

And last, but definitely not least, is Duck. Duck has been Amery's favorite toy since he was about 3 weeks old. If he's sad or in a bad mood, you can almost always guarantee a smile or a laugh when Duck comes around. Now it's not enough to just see Duck. Now he wants to eat Duck. As soon as you get Duck close enough, he grabs him in a big bear hug and tries to shove as much of Duck as possible into his mouth:

He doesn't like it.

The Bumbo seat. He doesn't like it. Supposedly all babies love this thing. Our baby is not one of those babies.

More Holiday Pics

Here are a few final pictures from our trip to Minnesota this past holiday season.

New duds from Aunt Jennifer and Uncle Derek.

Hanging with Grandpa.

Hanging with Grandma.

With papa in front of the tree.

Spending some quality time with great-grandma.

Ok, technically this picture was taken after we got back to Texas, but he looks so darn cute in this lil outfit from Gene and Susan that I had to include it.

Santa's Little Helper

Sorry for the delay in posting new pics. I left our camera cable at my parents' house so I can't get them off our camera until I get it in the mail. Here are a couple from my dad's camera (click on them for larger versions):

Christmas Eve. This one is for Auntie Jennifer who bought him this outfit.

Four generations on Christmas morning.
