This is the Boy...

This is the floor.

This is the chair that sits on the floor.

This is the cup, that sits on the chair, that sits on the floor.

This is the boy that throws the cup from the chair onto the floor!

My name is Henry and I have a problem.

I like to throw my cup onto the floor when I have finished drinking from it. Sometimes I even look like I want to drink from it so that an unknowing accomplice will hand me the cup to quench my thrist. I then take a half of a sip and throw it to its demise.

My latest approach is to throw the cup to the floor and then say "UH-OH" as if it were an accident, or should I say "accident"?

I thought that this would lessen the hostile stares my parents give me, but it hasn't. They have tried time-outs, ignoring me and even slapping my hand once.

I am too stubborn though, I will not be broken.

The Birthday Event 7.14.07

The preparation for Henry's birthday began before the actual day. Of course there was the purchasing of food and tableware, but there was also the cake. This was a dilemma for me. I wanted to make it for Henry myself, but I wasn't sure what to make, or when I would make it. My parents were gracious enough to take Henry and Levi on Friday so that Olivia and I could make the cakes.

We made Henry's cakes to fit his barnyard themed party. They of course took longer than planned, but were adorable in the end. I definitely could not have done it on my own, or with little boys under foot too!

Saturday, the 14th, was Henry's big day! Despite the rain and somewhat cloudy weather, the sun did shine here and there, and Scott's family made their way to the cottage. Henry just loved all of the attention. He received many wonderful gifts and immediately wanted to play with them all. Henry didn't do too much damage to the cake but I think he still had his fill. It was a good time, and we think that Henry enjoyed his special day!

The Little Man Hug

Monday we took another trip to Costco. Henry got to ride in the cart with his cousin Levi. Henry lasted for quite a while in the cart, until Levi even wanted to share a little man hug. As you can see, Henry wasn't so sure, maybe another time.

Swimming and Baked Beans

It was hit or miss if Henry wanted to swim in the float or just walk around in the water. When he was happy in the float he couldn't
stop splashing and giggling!

Baked Beans have become one of Henry's favorites. If there is anything else for dinner, he only wants the beans!
