desultory pictures and remarks from the last week

Here's another post stitches picture and a few pre-stitches that I am just getting around to putting up.

But first, a list of random things Aizay has done lately:
1. I caught him pretending his shoe was a telephone and talking into it.
2. Dave showed Aizay a picture of himself and asked him who it was. Dave answered for him, "It's you" while pointing at Aizay and then Aizay pointed at himself. This was Aizay's first self-point!
3. Aizay and I were walking outside and I forgot his mittens. The temperature was below freezing. After a few minutes, Aizay stopped in his tracks, waved his hands around and jabbered emphatically at me. I think he was saying, "What the hell were you thinking, forgetting my mittens?!"

And one random thing Dave did:
We have been on vacation at home and Davey has been very handy-man-ish. I really do appreciate the productivity, but...The other night at 10pm, while Aizay was asleep across the hall 4 feet away, Dave decided to remove the bedroom door from its hinges. (He has been planing down the tops of some of the doors because they were sticking.) I hear the racket down the hall and I call out, "What the hell are you doing?" Now, this is the funny part-Dave decides to answer me with a whisper so as not to bother Aizay!

Now, onto the pictures...

Dave didn't post this, originally, because it was too blurry. But it's so good; just imagine it is not blurry.

What a heartthrob!

When we leave Aizay to his own devices, he often retires to his room for a little reading...

Aizay is very proud of the 1 pound he gained in the last three months, the 1 pound which has given him a cute toddler pot belly...

Did the pilgrims have to co-pay?

Thanksgiving: turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and a trip to the emergency room. Aizay fell down and hit his head on the corner of a wall. So, no, that's not a centipede on his forehead. It's six or seven stitches. It took three of us to hold 'im down, and a fourth to stitch him.

After a post-ER waffle, Aizay will go to bed, and then we'll have to wake him up every two hours to check on him. So, tomorrow should be a real joy, too.

When we sell the house someday, we'll tell prospective buyers that the blood stain on the wall is cranberry sauce.

Time for a coffee break...

After emptying his kitchen tupperware/toy cabinet, Aizay looks quite fulfilled. We can only hope that in the future he can feel such satisfaction from doing chores, doing homework and going to work.

This little piggy smells like limburger

This is one of Aizay's favorite games, in which he presents his feet to us in order that we may smell them. Our part is to exclaim loudly at how smelly they are, with appropriate retching sounds.

Here comes the tickle spider!

Aizay and Dave have a game they play together. Dave makes his hand "crawl" towards Aizay and in the end the spider tickles him, all while Dave warns him with the above phrase.


p.s. would you look at all those teeth!
