In love with this guy:

Back to my sweet Remi. I lost my heart somewhere in his neck rolls. Kinda smelly in there, but my heart doesn't seem to mind.


Some 5 month stats in between the preciousness:

Weight: 16.8 pounds
Height: 27 inches


Major accomplishments:

  • Completely wooing all the females in this house along with all those he meets. Seriously, the guy charms the socks off random women in the grocery store. And the nice ladies in the MOPS nursery nearly tripped over their walkers while fighting to hold him when I dropped him off yesterday. Mr. Popular just sits back and enjoys the attention giving them what they want: grins and giggles. He also gives them a lot of spit up, yet no one complains.

  • His daddy thinks Rem is pretty awesome too because he can army crawl at 5 months. He 'da man. Remi can make it across the room, do a flip turn and go back. We are all amazed at him. 

  • Rolling front to back, back to front. He can go where he pleases, except when he flips over in his crib in the middle of the night. Suddenly he forgets all his skills. And since I lost my heart long ago, I go help him out. While I'm there, he convinces me it's been hours since his last feeding. Hours, mother. My neck rolls will dwindle.

  • Solid-ish food: rice cereal. Divided and conquered.


This is Rem's pet moose. A friend from Canada gave it to us when Mandy was a baby. For whatever reason, he really loves the moose.

And because I know what everyone is really after....


Here is a picture of those hunka-hunka burnin' love, chubby legs.

He is getting cuter and cuter all the time! And, wow, what an early crawler!

Ya, I had NO idea stuff got in there and stunk it up until a couple weeks ago when she was asleep in my arms with her head back and I got a whiff of that pungent aroma. Wow! Now I get in there good when she's bathing.

He is so adorable! I can see why he's a ladies man already :)

I serously lack Remi pictures. Can you upload the black and white to Costco for me- in 5x7. Thanks.

His eyelashes in the BW one are amazing! I love his ocean blue eyes. Army crawling all over at <6 months? WAY TO GO!

He looks so big in that last pic...what a cutie! I can see why he's a ladies man. :)

What a sweetie!! I gotta say, the smell of baby spit is way better when you don't smell it daily.

What a cutie. Love those rolls and chunky thighs in person and from afar. Good to see he has an appreciation for fine animals. Actually, have you seen a moose...weird looking creatures. I'm still trying to figure out how they walk on those legs of theirs. They are like toothpicks compared to their bodies. Good thing you live "down south" if one caught sight of Remi's thighs the moose would get jealous! :) That gives me an idea for next birthday gift...beaver or sled dog. :)

Good thing two became one when we got married because I cannot seem to remember to log out of Lindsay's account before posting a comment from his computer. Just think, you get two comments out of the deal. :)

Adieu from Moose country.

He just keeps getting cuter and cuter! Always loved seeing babies do their "army crawl"!
