The greater part of my waking hours last week were spent in the company of this little guy (and his older brother and mommy).
Oh, and Germain had the camera for part of the time, so I blame any inordinately weird shots on him.
I hesitate to use technology too readily when babysitting, but desperate times call for desperate measures. Let's just say he was being as impossible as possible.
There was a lot of grabbing for the camera going on.
The movie only held Germain's interest for so long, it appeared. Then he got more interested in the camera. Thus some of the next few shots.
I promise I wasn't pinching him.
They really look like brothers, don't they? And they both look like their mommy. In fact, the other day I saw a picture of Angèle as a school girl, and my word, is Germain the spittin' image of her!
Climbing. That's a new thing for him. He got lots of practice last week. (It makes me tired just remembering him going up. And down. And up. And down.)
He's gotten really fast at scooting.
I love that silly little grin.
Yes, Theo, there is a reason that bottom shelf is empty. And you are that reason. :)
And my two favorites of the week -
Captions, people? I'm thinking of turning this one into a meme of some sort...
I adore him.
It's ironic, I suppose...when I left CA, I kept thinking how much I was going to miss my nephews and niece (and now I have one more to miss!), and how hard it was going to be not to be around for all their growing up. I still miss them with all my heart.
And now when I squish baby Theo's soft and chubby cheeks against my own (not-quite-as-chubby) cheeks, I think how much I'm going to miss being around for all his growing up.
It's like having pieces of your heart on two different continents.
