So, Spikey’s 5 week birthday was actually yesterday. Oops. It’s not that I forgot about our child’s birthday (I talked about it several times), I just didn’t get to the blogging portion of the show until this AM. Oh well, Spikey knows we love him!
I’d have to say that Spikey’s in the 10th percentile or so for his frond height at this point, but it’s okay. Everybody’s different – that’s what makes the world go ’round. (See…I already have my explanation ready to go!) AND – look at his parents! We’re no giants and we are perfectly happy. I use a step stool often for reaching the top two shelves in the kitchen, but it’s sturdy and I’m a good climber – so who cares! I never hit my head on things, I’m darn good at limbo, I use very little body wash, and I can buy something from the kids section every now and then at Target. Good trees fronds things comes in small packages (or at least that’s what this 4’11” person has heard all of her life!).
Awww – Gramps and Nana C. with their very first grandchild. They’re head over heels for our little guy! Not the best picture of all time (the sprinklers were on), but we tried!
p.s. The four of us are having a little royal wedding party here tomorrow. Think big hats, lots of [fake] jewels, mimosas, and British accents. Okay, the boys will be simultaneously brewing beer, but they WILL participate. Pictures will be taken – so get ready!
p.s.s. Thanks for the blog mention, Charleston Daily Photo (Charleston City Paper Best Local Interest Blog Winner 2009 and 2010)! Much appreciated. =)
