Open Arms

We find ourselves stirring supper and assembling puzzles and wiping counters and turning pages single handedly, while Tolliver supervises from the other side.  Although he's beginning to tolerate down time a tad more willingly, he prefers to be up in arms.  He's still in that slug stage of snuggling, favoring a nap on our chests over one in the crib.  Our hands are full, and we often feel like there aren't enough limbs to go around.  Fortunately, love is not an appendage.

Jenni Baby,

Did you know that Tolliver recently requested membership in Poppy John's Junior Rangers (P.J.J.R.) ?
No naps are permitted during P.J.J.R. deployment!!!
No exceptions! Tollie needs to "man up".

I can be there in 2.5 hours. Those chubby legs are calling my name.

Tollie's such a genial little fellow!

Love how the top of his socks disappear into his shins! Looks so much better on him than it does on me : )

Absolutely precious! I love the clasped hands, the tongue-on-the-roof-of-the-mouth smile that they do at that stage, the beaming eyes and the tuft of red hair beginning on that round head!

And I failed to mention, the double chin, with a dimple to boot!
