Happy 3 months *Mister!

(don't miss the killer butterfly post underneath this one. It's pretty funny.)

Karl is 3 months old today. Happy 3 month my little guy. Here are 3 pictures for 3 months.

From just now in the only time our bed is the communal bed - morning snuggle time...


Taken just a few days ago, hanging out in his bumbo seat...


* Funny how nicknames evolve. Mister actually comes from my best friend's cat. My favorite of her 6 cats (yes, she's a crazy cat lady) was named Fat Man. The way you'd say the name was a big part of it too, but I don't know how to get that across in type. Anywho, all I've ever had has been female my entire life (my dog as a child, my cats and then my kids) so when I had Karl, I found myself calling him VERY feminine names. Noticing this, I started calling him Fat Man, the same way I'd call my favorite (and only) male cat. Fat Man had recently died, so I didn't want to call my kid the name of a dead cat, nevertheless the name of a cat itself, so I started calling him Mister Man, with the same enunciation. The Man got dropped and and now it's simply Mister.

What a cutie! I love the snuggle pictures. I will walk in on Aidan laying on the floor with Sam and holding his hand while they sit on the couch and I love it. It makes me proud to know that Aidan is such a good big brother.

Happy 3 months Karl! He is so freaking adorable I can't stand it! I LOVE the bumbo pic!

I call her Turtle or Birdie- she looks like a turtle to me when I sit her up- don't know why, but the baby nicknames are awesome!

Aww great pictures. They love their brother so much! I love nicknames! We call our son Zilla because he was SO huge compared the rest of the kids in daycare. He looked like Godzilla. It still fits, too.

Your children are beautiful.

Awww, he's soooo adorable,and when he gets to be an older man, he can be dubbed Mr.Mister. Ha!

I was named after my dad's drug-buddy's cat.

Yeah, they were hippies....but at least the cat wasn't name Cyclone or Dingbat, eh?
