Weekend with Toby

This weekend, Alex, my mom and I had an awesome time playing with Toby, who is now a whopping 3.5 months old. (So grown-up!)
This photo cracks me up. We had propped him up in the armchair, and he looked so hilariously chubby. Go chins!
My mom was visiting for the past ten days, and it was amazing to have her around. She slept in the nursery with Toby and called him her "roomie."
She left yesterday. We miss you already, Mama!

Update: Our birth story will be posted on Monday, September 20th.

I can't believe he is growing so fast. I see the resemblance with Grandma. And she is very young and pretty! I'm sure she is missing her 'roomie" already.

Hope you were able to make it to your romantic sailing getaway!

Grandma Kathleen said...

What a darling baby! keep posting pictures of him.

Deanna (Silly Goose Farm) said...

What a cutie. My kids never got that chubby that early. They are both long and lean, I guess.

Does your mom (adults in general) totally ignore what you say and focus all attention on Toby? That happened to me with my parents (my mom picks on me and says the only reason she ever had a child was for grandchildren). I can tell my mom that the house fell in and my car caught fire and meteors are falling from the sky, and as long as a grandbaby is around, she replies "that's nice, honey." Hopefully you're more relevant and/or interesting that I am now :-)

PoetessWug said...

How great! And is it just me, or are the "roomies"starting to look alike?! ^_^
