like mother, like son

today, for the very first time, i attempted to take the boys for a walk by carrying graham in the baby bjorn and pushing harrison in the stroller.  let me tell you, it was a WORK OUT.  i have friends who think this could be an excellent way to get some exercise, drop a few pounds, increase some endorphins, blah, blah, blah.  me?  i really don't think i'll be doing it again.  ever.

i'll keep you posted on that one. 

after i set graham (and myself) free from the bjorn, harrison thought it would be fun to give it a whirl...

grahamer rammer

listen here, you little are not yet ten months old and...

have already taken your first steps, finally got a tooth, are beginning to get into everything, can turn pages on your books all by yourself, make us laugh all the time, love to eat puffs, love to chase your brother around the house, love to sit in the grass and eat leaves, and have a zest for life that makes your mommy very tired.  it's time for you to slow down a bit, mister man!

yesterday i took a few moments to myself and left you unattended.  (aka:  mama needed to go potty).  everything was fine until i heard you crying.  i came out of the master bathroom to find this (in the guest bathroom)...

that really didn't explain why you were crying, though.  that is, until i looked a bit closer...

apparently, son, you were sad because your fun had, literally, run out.  

thanks for always making us smile, sweet boy!!  we LOVE you!

viva las vegas

jer & i were fortunate to spend last weekend away.  vegas is an interesting place, to say the least.  we got to see some dear friends and spend some time catching up - so good!


my ears still haven't recovered from listening to all the drunk, screaming chicks (a bachelorette party) on the way there.  that's right, folks, they were already inebriated at 10 am on a friday morning.  as one man in the airplane hanger eloquently put it, "what happens in vegas, starts in denver!"  

and my lungs still haven't recovered from all the second-hand smoke i breathed while there. 

and my eyes still haven't recovered from all the smut i saw while there.  

BUT, amidst all that "fog" (shall we say?) were all the fun things vegas has to offer.  we did everything tourist-y and had a great time!!

our friends, blindside, were doing a show.  this was taken during sound check.

one of the routes of the gondola ride at the venetian.  this photo was taken indoors.

the eiffel tower at paris - half the size of the original.  jer & i went up to the top and got to see the bellagio's water show from up there.  

on the gondola.  we chose to go for a ride on one of the outdoor ones.  our gondolier gave us gambling tips and sang to us.

the bellagio's water show was my favorite!  (well, along with the frozen hot chocolate from serendipity at ceasar's palace).  it's even more glorious at night.  we must have watched for an hour...

harrison's first baseball game

papa, daddy & harrison went to see the colorado rockies a couple weeks ago.  the game started at 6:15 pm and the boys didn't get home until 10:30 pm!  harrison stayed awake the entire time!

i have a feeling papa & daddy enjoyed it more than harrison (it's that whole "seeing the world through the eyes of your child" thing)!

harrison got to experience his first ball park dog.  he ate the whole thing!!

go rockies!
