the love for this little boy continues to swell exponentially every day. he knows his name. he rocks, lunges, scoots and inchworms and is so close to actually crawling. another week or two and he'll get it. he chews on paper and loves to crinkle plastic. his feet and hands are constantly sweaty and constantly being used to grab, pull, tear, kick or push. everything is better in his mouth; fabric, eve's hair, his little thumbs. he sighs, talks, laughs and complains. he prefers to stand. he favors his family but loves kissing only me, not the girls. he's always happier when people are around and happier still if those people hold him upside down or throw him in the air. he stares and laughs at chip and swats at me. he's calm and happy and so good, even with an ear infection and cough. deep, deep down there is a tiny secret part that wonders if he is my favorite, but then i remember the girls at six months and how i could hardly stand how much i loved them... oh, but this boy...

This makes me feel like we need to make another trip to NY- this time not to tour but just to enjoy the childrens (and their parents!)

Do you remember when you whispered in my ear that you were pregnant the night we moved from Brooklyn? I will forever date my time away from the city by the size of that child (give or take a few months when he was in your belly). So it makes me smile to see how darling he is, and a little sad to see how big he is getting. Maybe I should finish his baby gift before he is no longer a babe?

I love this boy! I'm not much of a baby person since I've had my own, but for some reason I'm always dying to hold charlie. maybe it's how quick he is to smile (and his smile is so freakin cute), or how cuddly he is when he sucks his thumb and leans into you, or how funny his facial expressions are when he's trying to grab something he can't reach. I'm so relieved you love your boy after your initial skepticism when finding out he wasn't a girl!

I love to peek in on your blog sometimes. you are so creative and your kids are darling. I am in love with that amazing map hanging in your home and wondered if you could share where you aquired it?

December 12, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterErin

I think I'm in love with him too. But I can't stand the thought of him growing up without me.

THANK YOU for a perfect "DD's refrigerator picture"! He looks so much like Eve! And I really think it stinks he can't live near enough to know his Papa and DD... we'd sure love to have you out west!!! :)

stop it just stop it. could you stop have the most adorable children ever?! it's painfully too cute!

I love how they all look similar like the chip and katie brand trademark.

love the shots! I want to pinch his little cheekies!

This made me cry!!!!
You took these thoughts right out of my head.

Just discovered your blog through a sister/fan. I'm loving your projects/creativity! Also curious about the fab map in this post. I'm in the middle of decorating our two youngest boys' bedroom and have a map floating around in my head but haven't seen it anywhere til I saw yours.
