His Majesty, the Prince of Whales.

May 14, 2013


Our six month-old is developing his own little personality.

He is very curious, exploring everything within reach by gnawing, chewing, and drooling.  He is also very engaging, reacting to loved ones with smiles, giggles, and shrieks.

He is especially fascinated by his two older sisters.  When they are close enough he gnaws, chews and drools on them.  However, he is usually content to watch them run from one end of the house to the other.  He is too small to sit up on his own, but he loves to be held in a sitting position to witness the chaos.  Periodically, he will get tired and bend forward at the waist to rest and thoughtfully chew on his toes.

Each time our three year-old sees this she will stop, bow, and gravely announce, “Your Majesty.”

Then she runs aways laughing like a complete maniac.

She is also developing a personality – a very big one by the looks of it.


  1. That’s so cute! Lily’s personality is way bigger than the rest of ours. She’s loud, super smart, and she tells her brother how it is. Or maybe it’s just because she’s so small her personality was kicked up a notch. Either way, look out everyone! 🙂 Tell your lovely wife, I would like more photos please! We miss you guys!

    • Photos were sent the other day. Harass your husband if he doesn’t share them. 🙂
