    Baby's first cold. Thought he'd prefer if we used real tissues (instead of a burp cloth) to wipe his ever-running nose. Then I left him alone with said tissues for a minute. I should have known: he was being awfully quiet. Also, the child is inexplicably afraid of the dustbuster so I fear many of these scraps are still there, 24 hours later. Yay, squalor.

      oh, he'll only get more colds. and the squalor grows worse when he walks. but he's so awfully cute that you won't mind at all.

      Did he try to eat them? My 10 month old thinks kleenex (and everything remotely related) are for ripping and /eating/. :)

      Oops, I didn't check. Well, if he did, he survived another day! :)

      The hair! It has that perfect summer sweaty sleepy curl to it.

      He looks so cheerful despite having a cold. That's the spirit Jacob!
      Or is it because he just tore up a bunch of tissues? We'll never know... :)

      Mercy, what an impish grin! How have you not eaten him right up?

      Sooo cute! Even at 2 and a half, my little girl will not be in the same room as a vacuum when its switched on and she is so confident and extrovert everywhere else, so funny!

      Is there a way for your cookbook to have secret little "pop-up" areas (you know, kind of like an advent calendar) where, when you spot one, you open it to find one of these pictures? It's so much part of the fun of your blog to play "where's the hyperlink" and get to see this happy baby.

      My mother's favorite photo of me features my chubby 18 month old self, sitting in a pile of tissues, gleefully pulling them out of the box. "It's magic! Every time you pull one out, POOF! There's another one there!"

      Hope he is feeling better. He has such a darling 'I'm busted' expression. :-)
