New Faces, the Crib and a Butt Crack! Oh, and Not Me Monday!

Pretty catchy title, huh? I thought it summed up our Sunday. And I am going to jump the gun and start Not Me Monday a day early.

Faces: Kingston has a new "funny face" that he makes on occasion. I can't seem to figure out what triggers the face, and there isn't a specific time or place that he makes it. He can turn heads with this face and gets lots of attention and giggles from innocent bystanders when they see it. We like to joke that it is cute and funny now, we just hope he isn't still making the "funny face" when he is 15. Or even 5 for that matter! People keep telling me to get a picture of it. So without further ado, here is the "funny face":

And his new smile, complete with his 4, count em, 4 teeth and at least one more on the way any day now. Maybe the face has something to do with the new teeth. I don't know.

I AM NOT really worried that he will always make this face. Nope. I'm not at least a little nervous that it is some sort of tic that won't go away. I'm so glad I don't even have to think about it, really, because I'm not even worried at all about it.

Crib: I knew this day was coming soon. I didn't expect it to be today and I didn't expect it to happen with such fervor. Kingston can now totally pull himself up to standing in his crib. I went in to get him after he talked for about 45 minutes instead of taking his afternoon nap, only to find him standing up in the crib. With the rocking chair pulled up next to it. With the blanket that was on the back of the rocking chair draped over the Sleep Sheep sound machine. With a big toothy grin. He was quite proud of himself. And I was quite proud of him, too! Forcing him to take a nap is going to be a whole new battle now.

I DO NOT sometimes leave Kingston's sheets on his crib for days at a time. I mean, he's a baby. How dirty can he be? And it is SO easy to put crib sheets on.

Butt Crack: Kingston just discovered tonight that he has a butt crack!!! Hilarious. He was wiggling around in the tub, splashing and swishing his toys around when all of a sudden his hand landed in the crack. That was all she wrote! He dug around for a good minute or 2 while Nigel went to get the camera. We adults take these things for granted. These discoveries are quite fascinating to a small child. We let him explore!

Oooh. I don't think I can come up with a Not Me about Kingston's butt crack. I'll just let that one go.

I was starting to worry that I was losing my blogging enthusiasm. But alas, Sunday has again provided me with more fodder for my silly blog. Faces, cribs and butt cracks. Not Me Monday! Oh, and I won a caption contest on the My Charming Kids Blog!!! How cool am I?!! Check me out!

Could there be better material? You can't make this stuff up.

We were talking about the crib thing just this morning.....Kingston must have heard us and he got right to it! What a little monkey! Love the pictures, the subject, the blog, and the blogger.

Very catchy headline! Apparently you're good that them!!

Pictures are too cute, I love his face that he makes.

How about: "I did not just post a picture of my baby digging around in his butt crack?"

Too bad about the crib standing. npa times have become party time since then. It got even better when she started walking. Now she runs from one end to the other.


Man there's a ton of letter in your word verification!

OK, Kingston's face brought back a memory this morning. My daughter used to do that exact same face, but she would clench her fists and shake her entire body.. really hard.. and growl. It was hysterical and the more people laughed, the more she'd do it. Never could figure it out...

I did NOT laugh out loud when I saw his cute little face! LOL

My son, Corban, does NOT grab his butt and yell "BUTT! BUTT"

That is an adorable face! As parents, you would still think it is cute at 5, at 15? Maybe!
