Happy and Plump.

My firstborn gave me a very good laugh this morning. I gotta show you the pictures so you can have a good laugh too...

This is where Alex gets his diaper changed. It consists of a dresser, changing pad, and a colorful homemade changing pad cover that matched his nursery.

The changing pad has blocks with pictures of old fashioned toys. He often points to each square and we learn the word that goes with the picture. For example, "airplane".


Then, this morning, he points to this one and says, "Mama". I wasn't sure whether to be offended that my son sees me as, well, happy and plump, or laugh my head off. I chose to laugh. And laugh. And laugh! I guess maybe if I were sensitive about my weight or appearance (which I'm not), I might be offended. But instead, I find it simply hilarious.

Maybe someday he'll point to this one (she's so skinny, you know) and say, "Mama".
I'm not going to hold my breath, though!

Too funny! This can be added to the Fat Taxi montage now (which I just retold not to long ago)! Great perspective too. Thanks for sharing the funnies with us; these truely make the best stories! Love you so.

You know he just saw the eyes, nose, great smile and hair and thought, "Mama!"

He's a cutie!

Hope you're getting acclimated to two!
