He's not always happy, believe it or not.

Don't laugh. This is how you look to a giraffe.

Target Acquired

Right at this moment, Beauford is thinking "uh oh, he's looking at me". Alex is thinking "I wonder what will happen if I stick my thumb in his eye".

All My Children

July31 027.jpg Here's my boys. Alex wasn't hitting Beauford, or sitting on him, or sticking his hand in his mouth, or pulling on his paws or tail. In honor of the occasion, we took a picture.

Pearly Whites

New Camera

We got a new camera. It's very nice. If you're in the market right now, then I recommend this one. Did I mention it's very nice? Leanne adds: It's a Canon Powershot S50, and it came with a manual the size of a phone book, but it does take very high-quality pictures.

Healthy as a horse (or at least a small pony)

We're happy to report that Alex's sensitivity to wheat products has resolved itself. Apparently his body just needed a little extra time. All his old favorites have been gradually added back into his diet -- crackers, pasta, waffles, toast -- and he's doing great. It also makes mealtime much easier, since he can simply eat a smaller, chopped-up portion of whatever we're having. Alex's iron levels have also improved from the "borderline" results that showed up during his annual checkup. Adding more red meats and a chewable children's vitamin seemed to do the trick.

The bad news is that he's teething terribly this past week or so. His canines are coming in at the same time as his first set of molars, and he's miserable about it -- mostly in the evenings and at night. Apparently, it's hard work being a toddler.

Psst, they're thumbnails. Click em.

Small toddler throws ball to papa. Notice his aim, which is perfect. This picture is the one and only time he's ever done that. It always comes in my general direction, but he's not quite accurate yet. PS He's right handed.

He was crying 10 seconds ago. You stick a camera in his face and he smiles. It's great.

Joining the Revolution

We're in the process of moving Alex's online scrapbook over to a "blog" system called MovableType. Instead of building a complete page every month, we'll add an entry every time he does something cute. The system takes care of the actual formatting, layout, etc.

Becky, Aaron, Tasha, please show your folks how to use the comments and stuff. If you're an old person that doesn't have a resident teenager, go out on the street, yell "WTT caffeine 4 blog infoz", a representative will be with you shortly.
