Li'l Troublemaker

Otis is really getting into stuff now.  It's exhausting.  We just got our desktop computer fixed and put it back in the same place.  But lit up buttons are exciting and little sausage fingers just love to push them!!  Our power button used to not work, you had to fiddle with wires to get the computer to turn on or off.  I'm sort of wishing it were still like that, as Otis has turned off the computer twice today while I was in the midst of something...I got him a new baby doll at the thrift store yesterday, and I keep trying to get him interested in "Gus" instead.

He also found the recycling.  When Ingrid was this age we put all the tupperware things down under the sink so she had things she could explore.  I guess it's time we did that here, too.  Time to find a new place for our recycling!

Please excuse the boogers, but check out all these teeth!  It's so funny to see him smile now, he looks like such a little boy instead of a baby. 

It's amazing that he will be one in a matter of weeks!  I just started planning the party--gnomes and toadstools.  I found some cute invites on etsy, some cupcake toppers, party favors, and of course I will be making a felt bunting and birthday crown.  If time allows, big sister might even get a new dress with this fabric.  Exciting!

I remember watching my baby brother crawl across the room and hearing my dad say, "Here comes Trouble!" My brother heard that so much that, for a while, he thought his NAME was Trouble! Definitely a name he earned...

Now he's 6'5" and super disciplined. Funny how they grow up!
