rocket loves hooters.

they have TVs EVERYWHERE in that place! rocket and uncle tyler watched the world cup game while i snarfed a cheeseburger and chatted with aunt drea. we documented the visit photographically.
first trip to hooters.

yesterday i purchased and assembled "baby heaven"...
pretty pleased :)

video of the excitement.

out and proud.

i purchased (and am totally in LOVE with) the twilight new moon soundtrack. thom yorke, bon iver, and death cab? you cannot go wrong. this bon iver track is spiritual. push play. meditate.

the keys, round 1.

the rocket netzler keys look: hat, sun shirt, no pants.

belated.

well, the present wasn't. but a post about my birthday is :) mug from aunt amanda featuring rocket's footprint turned into a rocket ship... perfection? i think so. coffee even tastes better out of this thing.

now we're up to date.

this morning rocket woke up at 6:10am and pooped. loudly. thus forcing me to turn on the light, change him, and accept that he was ramped up and ready to go. look how adorable he is...

he's very bossy.

well, not REALLY :)

a personal circus!

this just made me so happy! yes, it's 4 minutes and 36 seconds long. yes, it's worth every second. watch it and try NOT to smile!

then things REALLY get crazy when skylar, the 10 month old babysitting charge, is added in.

you can clearly see rocket is not accustom to this activity level :)

shortly after that insanity rocket sat in his first high chair like a regular big boy. he was playing it cool (as you can see) but he had to do SOMETHING since skylar took her first steps today.
