Close to two weeks left to Christmas! Are busy with the usual Christmas business and haven't been updating as I should have been. But an overflow of photos will follow the coming festivities, so enjoy the lean times until then. Update, Chubs is learning his moves and get super excited when he dances with the older boys Its so funny to see his twirls, dips and hip movement. I really ought to take a video of it one of these days. Here's an older pic from August that we took after her bath in which she resembles a fat cat contentedly basking in the sun.
Dada tried his hand at making a headboard and it turned out nicely. He too added mood-setting lights and speakers, together with a mirror, which Pudgelicious spends far too much time in front of. (She adores mirrors...)
Chubs is learning how to use the toilet on his own. Today when I decided to check up on him and knocked on the door, he replied with, "On no, Papa!" I told him who it was and that I would wait outside for him. A few seconds passed when I heard, "Oh geez!" in a frustrated tone, followed by a sigh. I peeked inside and he was busily wiping up the pee that he had accidentally sprayed on the toilet lid. It was quite responsible of him, (although he missed a few spots).
Mommy dressed her up in this pumpkin outfit today and she looked so round and adorable that we just had to go out for a photo shoot. The sun was out and it was the first sunny day after close to a week of gloomy weather. She usually loves taking photos, but since she was sick with a cold, she wasn't her normal happy self. She cheered up when she found some leaves to munch on.
On a totally different note, you spend close to a third of your life sleeping (wink wink!) so it goes to figure that you want a good, sturdy bed. Akira recently began construction on a king-size bed that was too cool to leave unposted, quite literally. The posts were my favorite part. They have lights and speakers embedded in them, providing surroud light and sound. He also made it high enough so that we could store the majority of our stuff underneath. It isn't complete yet, there are still more new features to be added, but I couldn't wait, so here it is!
Carving groves for the speakers
Preparing the posts
Tada! The bed!
Lighting coordination can be done by changing the bulbs on both the top and bottom
Will begin uploading more photos from the last 2 years and 9 months, plus random Home life photos that are found. Since it's more enjoyable to prolong the fun, and because the computer in use is far from having the best internet connection, it will be dished out slowly in more than one post.
Admire the pudge
Well, what more can be said? Like father like son. Eh? (Note the same foolish expression on their faces...tsk tsk.)
Photo from an art project to make a squirrel headband. Unfortunately he isn't the most skilled with the scissors and lopped a part of the ear off, but he was happy with the result.
Below is just a photo I thought was very funny. Pudgelicious was waddling along the wall and somehow the way she was standing flat against the wall with her hands up resembled a person during a hold-up. When I told Dada that, Dada decided to be the gangster with his best attempt at gruffly saying, "Put your hands up!" and she turned at the last moment wondering why Dada was supporting her back. Okay, well I thought it was funny..
