Guess what Josh's favorite food is case you don't read body language, it's sweet potatoes!

Josh is sitting in his highchair which I recently assembled. It's wooden and looks lovely in our dining room. His chin barely lifts above the tray, and he looks like he's swimming in that giant seat, but it was time to make the leap.

You're the One

It finally occurred to me tonight to throw a toy in the bath and see what Josh would do with it. He loved it! Especially when I showed him it can make as high a squeak as he can. Oh the falsetto fun that ensued...
Rubber Ducky, you're the one!

Mobile Me

What starts out as blanket time turns into deep space exploration in the mobile world of Josh Walker. Since it happens when we aren't looking, the mechanics are still in question, but our suspected theory is that, with a combination of high pitch squeals, rolls, and yaw(n)s, our little satellite revolves around the living room, discovering unpioneered space and time. See photo, below, for a close-up look at the astronomical lengths to which this Little Explorer goes.

What Camo is REALLY for...

"If I lie really still, nobody will notice me!"


"Daddy, take me with you."

How Much Do You Like Carrots, Josh?

Josh had his first real food besides rice cereal yesterday, and it was a hit (see vid, below). But if you ask Jordan, rice cereal isn't real food. It's like flakes of shiny metal, he says. And if you asked him about carrots, he'd find an equally weird analogy to prove that one should not consume carrots either. But, Josh, as his mother is proud to announce, thinks otherwise.

His other new thing of the day is testing his falsetto voice. No, seriously, even this baby has a higher octave, and he found it yesterday. He thinks it's really cute, but I am trying to convince him to leave falsetto to the pros. I mean, who doesn't love Andrea Bocelli on O Holy Night? Josh, on the other hand, is more like on the sound pitch that only dogs and cats can hear, except just below it. Because I can hear it. And it's quite a high squeal. You can send your thanks that I didn't post that might bust the window by your computer.

Laughter is the Best Medicine

Happy New Year!

Christmas in Idaho

While we all know Josh has been a cherub this year, it was confirmed by a certain visitor...

...who left him some toys under the tree...although I think the gift tags read, "To Josh, from Mommy and Daddy."

On Christmas Eve, Daddy read "The Night Before Christmas" poem to Josh, and Mommy made an exception to the "No T.V. Rule" and let Josh watch our favorite Christmas movie, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." He made it to the part where they shop for the famous Charlie Brown tree, and he zonked out. Good thing Daddy read Luke 2 the next night since Josh didn't make it to Linus's famous soliloquy.

And on Christmas Day, we got up for an early breakfast with our friends Greg and Natalie, and drove up to Sun Valley for the day. We strolled around the village and ate at a beautiful lodge near the ski resort.
