Love it when his toes are curled!
I bribed Dane with a Fruit Strip if he would pose with Erik as well. Of course, as you've probably noticed, Dane was just in his Diaper. I don't even know why we buy him clothes.
I love Erik's eyes in this one...
...and his focus in this one.
Grabbed this one while Dane was playing with his CD player. He let me get really close and just snap away for about 5 minutes.
Little E sleeps in a "Miracle Blanket." This thing is essentially a straight jacket for babies. Some friends of ours recommended it and Erik really seems to sleep well with it. I would recommend it to anyone.
Erik's lower lip pouts out while he is sleeping.
Dane has been testing us recently. We'll ask him to do something, and he'll either run the other way or just stand there and look at us in total defiance. The other day, we were playing outside in the cul-de-sac just before bedtime I told Dane we had to go inside. He immediately ran over to our neighbor's lawn and laid down in protest. He was in a really calm mood, however, and I happened to have the camera with me.
We had a memorial service last week. Dane's second CD player was finally laid to rest. The service was quick and deliberate and Dane's "eugoogily" was perfect. An air of respect permeated the event and I know Dane is ready to move on. The Paparazzi showed up too!
Not to fear, Grandma Z had a spare CD player for Dane. He has already prayed a blessing over his new best friend and has figured out the new buttons.
