The Lowdown on Scarface

Atticus had some words with the ground last night. He is now a marked man.

Still sweet though.

Twinkling Little Stars

I apologize for the video quality. I used the "capture video" option at YouTube, and it apparently doesn't work as well as me recording the video first.

He Walks!

Zane is finally walking. He started the day before he turned 11 months. Baby steps of course. He is up to 6-8 decent strides before taking a seat.

He should be running around in no time.

Stay tuned for video.

Happy Birthday Nana!

This is Nana.

She also answers to Mom.

From Atticus:

Happy Birthday. I love Nana because she gives me presents. I made a silly face and that's what I want to tell her too. It's fun to play games with Nana. Hide and seek. We're going to make a cake for you later,but you can't eat it or the candles. We're going to go to the park again later (probably not, it's like 30 degrees out). Happy Birthday. That's all I want to say.

Let the Countdown Commence...

Zane is 11 months old today. He is a bumbling, stumbling ball of joy. He says the requisite "Ma-Ma", "Da-Da" and the occasional "hi" or "night-night". He's been standing like a champ since 6 months, but barely took his first steps/fall last night.

He's a looker. Like his old man.

The brother is cute too.

Return From Disney

"The sun melts snow and chocolate." said Atticus. Atticus & Mickey Mouse Lennon Honea as he has been referring to himself. He was clutching a chocolate coin left by the turn-down maid at our Disney hotel. It was soft and starting to leak. I could tell a lot by the brown smudges on the face of pure innocence in the seat behind me.

"You're not eating that are you?" I asked.

"No, just licking it." was the reply.

"Fair enough."

Atticus & Mickey Mouse Lennon Honea has a knack for working the angle. He manages, almost daily, to prolong the hours before bedtime, skip naps and eat whole apples in between meals (he has yet to make the difference between crap and nutritious snack items). He has a command of language, logic, technicalities and puppy dog eyes that make even the most absurd request seem plausible. It's a gift.

This son melts more than snow and chocolate.

Here are some pics of Thing 1 & Thing 2 enjoying their New Year holiday:
