Look at Me.. Look at me!!


SO mommy finally took me out in my pooping wagon.. Well, thats what they used to call it when I was a tiny baby. Something about everytime I got in it I pooped. haha.. Very funny.. (By the way, why are most of the jokes at my expense)? At any rate, its very irritating for mommy to try and get it in and out of the car. Its big, bulky, and heavy. But I like it and I am the most important factor here dontcha know? So mommy took me to school in my (or should I say her) pram today & it was lots and lots of fun to get pushed around in! I should mention I am the 4th Lasater baby to use this so mommy may want me to mention it was lots of money well spent 14 years ago....

SANTA




Okay, so not only did I go to the zoo today but I also met Santa. He spent about 15 minutes hanging out with me, mommy, and the boys. He had magic in his hand - he made a santa spin & turned it into a snowman. He also had bells he said he borrowed from Rudolph. Santa let me pull his beard & he held me for a long time. It was a nice chat with the big guy. I found him to be pretty interesting. He doesn't seem to think I will like him very much next year but I am thinking I will.

My first trip to the Zoo











The title says it all faithful readers.. My first trip to the zoo.. It smelled, it was humid, and everyone tried to get me to look at funny creatures. All I can say is "Hey, don't we have a zoo back at the house?".. Just kidding, I did enjoy the fishies. I LOVE fishies and turtles.. But.. as I just mentioned, don't we have those at the house??

The Court Jester


This is our favorite hat & sweater set - I even have a specially made pair of wool pants that match - mommy had a lady in Canada make them for me. I know someday I may look back and think - WHAT DID YOU MAKE ME WEAR - but in the meantime I have found this hat is a great way to get a lot of attention from every person in the universe.. and I sure do like when people stop to smile at me!!

Four legged Vacuum


Meet Cody - our four legged vacuum.. Mommy says no need for a vacuum - we have a Cody!

I eat - then he cleans up!

Bed Hog.


My shirt says everything you need to know. Mommy made it for me. BED HOG. I may be little but I take up alll the room I need in that king size bed!

First things first..




Mommy says too many people are complaining that I never ever do updates anymore. Well... thats cuz I am super busy being a little boy.. I roll everywhere, I eat most anything (chicken, rice, all fruits, most veggies, pasta, bread, cinnamon pretzels) - you get the idea - I like food... I also have 2 very sharp little teeth OUCH!, I make lots of funny noises, Daddy cut off my curl (mommy called it my side ponytail - and yes - she saved it).. HHmmm.. what else have I been up to? Just growing I guess!

Sofie




Mommy has been saying Sofie the Giraffe is coming to live with us. Unfortunately for Dalton she got here earlier and it turns out that she is not a real giraffe. Thanks mom.. for nothing. We thought we were adding to our zoo.. Here is why Mommy thinks Sofie is gonna be my new bff...


The Little giraffe was born on the 25th of May in the year 1961…St Sophie’s day!In those days, the only animal toys available were farm animal or pet figures.. That is why one day in France, a certain Monsieur RAMPEAU, who was an expert in transforming sap from the HEVEA tree using the rotational molding of rubber as a toy-making concept, came up with the idea of designing a giraffe. Such an exotic wildlife figure would be a first on the market, and its size and shape would be ideal for a baby’s small hands to grasp.Sophie the Giraffe, who looked exactly the same then as she does today, went into production on a Thursday, May 25th, whence her name.She was an immediate success. Young mothers straightaway saw that she was a must for their children when the first signs of teething appear, Sophie the Giraffe helps baby stop crying!By simple word of mouth, the little Giraffe’s fame spread.From then on in Europe, generation upon generation of children were to love hearing Sophie squeak whenever they pressed her tummy and head!Vulli, a company based in Rumilly in the Haute-Savoie Region of France has continued to keep the jealously-guarded secret of how this wonder toy is made.SOPHIE is still “traditionally” produced to this day, a process that involves more than 14 manual operations. She is made from 100% natural rubber derived from the sap of the Hevea Tree.

Anyways, I am not sure about all the hoopla but so far so good. She is pretty cute & tastes great! Sofie also squeaks. Wait a minute, this isn't a DOGGY chew toy is it??!!

Meet my friend Hallie...




For those of you that do not know Hallie is the great-niece of my "Uncle" Fisher & the granddaughter of Steven & Sherry's. I am one week older than her. Mommy says that means we win!! :) Obviously I am the one with the so called "flintstone feet"...

ANOTHER Concert!!





Saturday night I got to catch up with my Uncle Fisher, Kenda, Sherry & Steven at the New Braunfels fairgrounds. It was soo crowded but very noisy & lots of fun! Mommy said I had already met Stoney LaRue but I don't remember because I was still cookin' at the time! I am just thinking, Mommy & Daddy let us kids stay out pretty late with them!

Football Anyone??


SO there is this game called football. Have you heard about it? My brother Logan plays it every day of the week. Its weird. Somedays the Dad guy comes home early & picks us up then we go to school (again - by the way, how many times a day do we need to go to this school place - once in the morning for Dalton, once in the morning for Ashton & Logan, then again in the afternoon for Dalton, again for Ashton, and then AGAIN for Logan later on. And most days we have to go to one or the other a third time to do this strange thing called volunteering). As Ashton would say - OMG!


But anyways, I digress... Back to the football thingie. I sit in the sun at Logans school and watch people run back and forth on a field. Mommy yells, so does Daddy, well, actually everyone yells. Mommy says they are not yelling at me. Not only do we do this football thing for Logan apparently we go on some Friday nights too - for this thing called High School. Geez.. will this school thing ever stop? Oh, did I mention that both my brothers go outside after dinner and play it some more? They even watch it on TV. (At night AND in the mornings they watch replays). Something tells me I too will be a part of this phenomenon...

Note from Mommy


I just realized its been ages since I have done anything on this blog.. Well, a quick update from me. Liam is great. He is spitting, making lots of noises & sounds (LOUD!), he cries if he is startled, such as a suddden sneeze or a pan dropping on the floor. He had 5 more shots at his Sept. 8th Dr. appt. He weighed 17lbs. 12oz and was 26 3/4" long at that 4 month visit.


Liam is eating applesauce but no baby cereal. After realizing he did not like it I did some research and found rice cereal has little to no nutritional benefits. It is just what we teach our babies to eat with.. (but not Liam).... He has grabby hands and is interested in just about everything.


He is such fun and is so happy all of the time. A true reason to wake up each day (and many times during the night)!

Cereal Later




I tried cereal this morning. It was YUCK! Mommy said its her favorite kind - something called baby rice & she said my picture is on the box. She is not very truthful. Thats nasty tasting... I am not eating that ever again.

But I did like my chair. Its called a BUMBO - not to be confused with a BIMBO!! And Daddy bought a tray for it yesterday!! I will sit in it but I will not eat YUCKY CEREAL anymore!

Just because....



16 weeks old or 117 days... :)

from the desk of mommy....

new comment regarding wool diaper covers in case you have not seen this one:

from Amanda Q. ~ don't get it though. If it gets pee on it, how does it get clean if it doesn't need regular washing? Why am I not wearing wool pantaloons? I tried to think back to my first experience with hippy-chic cloth diapers for Caleb 15 some odd years ago and he had to have this horrible plastic cover with velcro sides over the cloth diaper. Had I known about the wool pants then, I think I could have stuck it out through two kids. Caleb only made it about 6 months and then the plastic covering drove me over the edge! I'm seriously considering having someone make me a pair of wool short shorts to wear around the house, just to try them out!

great ? Amanda - here is your answer:
Wool is very different from other diapers and covers, it has a natural antibacterial quality that prevents it from needing to be washed as often. It can be washed every 2-3 weeks unless you get poop on it. Wool has a self cleaning property called lanolin. If the wool feels damp or wet after wearing it, you simply lay it out flat to air out and let the wool do its job of self cleaning. When the lanolin properties (the waterproof properties) get too low, its time to lanolize them. Lanolizing only needs to be done every 2 or 3 months depending on how often its washed. Wool is "dirt resistant - the crimp and the scales prevent dirt from penetrating the surface of the wool fibre and the static resistance also helps to resist dust and lint from the air."

Extensions?


So I have some red extensions in this picture.. what can I say.. my mama is a little silly. She thinks she is soooooo funny. really.. ask anyone. she is very very silly!!

Anyways, lots of questions recently regarding my wool pants. Yes, its my signature style (and mine alone - seriously people - how many kids do you know that wear wool pants?), nooo they are not too hot, and yes! they keep anyone holding me from getting wet! Mommy gets them from other mommies that are talented enough to be able to knit & crochet. She gets to pick cool colors & fun appliques that match all of my shirts! Of course some of my shirts are just regular old white ones that Mommy and Lala dye. They are way too creative with my clothes people...

Anyways, then after mommy (*and only mommy) puts a regular cloth diaper on me she puts a wool cover over it to keep in the moisture. And as anyone in our house can tell you if I ain't got a cover on you don't want to be picking me up!! Unless I am wearing a pocket diaper or an all in one (AIO).. So many kinds, so little time... So.. wool holds in the moisture and prevents my friends and family from getting wet. Wool is a natural fiber that repels wetness & does not require regular washings.

I know the real reason Mommy uses cloth on me though. Truth is she loves the attention, the questions, the strange looks, and helping to lessen our footprint on the earth is a good thing too! Plus, I hate wearing paper underwear!
