It's All About the Photos

My dear faithful and loyal blog readers,

Just let me once see something new on here and I want to try it for myself.  I have really enjoyed the big photographs that other fellow bloggers have been displaying and I wanted them too.  Thanks to the blogging friend who is never too busy to give me tips, shared this one.  And it makes me wonder why I couldn't find it before.

That I never looked might have something to do with it.

Zane is almost 18 months old.  He learned a new word yesterday, "Charlie", that's everybody's dog but mine, and a new one at Antioch "water".  Of course if helps if he's looking at the object he's asking for, because no one else except us, who are getting well trained in the art of 'babyese' again.  Aren't we clever? 

We need to be.

Trying to keep one step ahead of this critter is something else again.  Especially since he can open the refrigerator door and the van door.  In the fridge, he is usually looking for the milk, but yesterday he opened one of the drawers and found the mini carrots.  He wanted one, but for the life of me, I can't figure out why.  He doesn't want to EAT them.  After I found several on the floor, and he was leaving it open, because it wouldn't shut with the drawer open, we had a little discipline session. It is troubling that he can also open the van door, and he wants to be in there to vroom, vroom, knows he should turn the key although he can't yet.  So, even though he can't open the door to the garage and he can't turn the key, and even if he could, he can't push on the brake and put it in gear at the same time and there's no telling when he will. So, it is a much better plan for us to start early on the habit of not leaving our keys in the van anymore.


For those of you who see Zane regularly inside and outside this blog have perhaps noticed his hair getting longer and longer, or rather curlier and curlier, week by week, month by month.  It WAS cute.  Curls are cute on any baby, girl or boy.  Jim has been after Lorene to cut his hair but she was a hold out until Antioch, when from the back he looked just like another little girl, just his size. 

So, we went from this...

                                                                                                                                         major bedhead...

To this.

I think he looks so nice this way, older for sure, but now we can see his cute little head.

He was having such a fun time playing with Lynette's blanket, that I almost missed the opportunity to get a good photo of him.

What a sweetie!!

dear Goodbye Zaney Curls,

Yes, he does look older, but it is a CUTE older anyway, and it fits him. I know you saved a curl for the scrapbook.

betting you won't mix those locks up with anyone elses you have saved

The curls were just so cute--but I love the little boy look! He is a sweetie, and oh so cute!
And I love all your posts too. Blogging is so fun!
Just remember, if you have a horizontal photo, it may not fit on the extra large size unless you change your actual template size to wider.
