How on earth did he get his mitts on mulch?

I love his Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde hairdo. Business on the left side, party on the right side!

That's an expert devious look he has going on there. Wasn't he a teeny infant, like 37 seconds ago?

High chair food from an *adult*, Henry.

Colleen said...

That expression is priceless.

Look at that cheeky monkey grin!

JMC said...

Oh, the ladybug must have been a fun one!

Omaha Mama said...

Oh yeah. I've so been there. And posted about it too, I believe.

Do you not have pets? I didn't see pet food on there. Although, I think both of my kids were just over a year old when they tasted their first sweet nibble of dog food. Yummm.

Omaha Mama said...

He is one cute little guy. And looks a wee bit ornery too.

Erica said...

Whenever we go to the park, I spend half my time removing mulch from Maddie's mouth.

Erica said...

Oh, and DOG FOOD! She lurrrves dog food.

Good to know my son is not the only one who has a taste for mulch and bugs! We are currently infested with mayflies (known to some as mosquito hawks), and so they sneak in from outside and die all over the house. I have managed to pull three out of his mouth, and I don't want to think about the ones he may have swallowed before I caught them.
Also, my son's hair does the same thing. It's impossible to control.

haaaaa. and ew. ladybug is definitely my favorite. i used to eat newspaper, apparently.

carrie said...

But look at that face! Who could resist or ever reprimand that sweet, sweet face?!

AndreAnna said...

With a face like that, who cares what he eats, right?

I once pulled a carpenter bee out of Charlotte's mouth - thankfully dead,but HUGE.

Swistle said...

Jennifer- It's a Side Mullet!

Omaha Mama- We do have cats, but we keep their food in the basement.

Just yesterday I removed a plastic bead (cue first-time mother anxiety: Oh my god she could have choked to death on that ) AND a small stone from E's mouth. She and L regularly require mouth finger sweeps for carpet fibres from our rug and the cat scratching pole. But the worst was a piece of BROKEN GLASS (from a jar I broke and thought I'd tracked down every last piece) L was about to put in her mouth.

Wouldn't you think that from an evolutionary perspective, babies' habit of putting any small object they find into their mouths would NOT advance the survival of the species? I don't get why they do it.

Jana said...

Is it just me, or does Henry get cuter and cuter with each passing day?

Amy said...

How have you trained him to eat out of a BOWL? Mine still throw bowls and plates!

d e v a n said...

He's so cute!!! I'm finding it much harder to keep little things out of O's mouth than I did with d. This next one is really in trouble...

Swistle said...

Amy- Henry too! I took the picture fast, and the bowl was on the floor less than a minute later. (The bowl was from his big brother: I asked William to get Henry some cereal, and William thought I meant in a bowl.)

Mommy Daisy said...

Oh man, that is pure orneriness on his face there.

Kristi said...

OMG I love the ladybug, but the jellybean was my favorite. He'll get you back for not letting him eat that!!!! lol

Hah!

Poor little ladybug!
