We spent the holiday with my family in Washington. It was a wonderful 10 days and we were actually snowed in for most of that time. But we were all together, so it was fun to all be trapped and forced into playing games, working on projects and just hanging out. We love being with my family so it was SUCH a great trip!! For Malak's first Chrsitmas with us, he had a few favorite presents from Santa...he really liked his Koosh ball, really loved the lid to his cool new bowl (not the bowl, just the lid) but most of all... he loved the paper (shocking, I know). It was the best present anyone could have given him. I'm pretty sure he ate an unhealthy amount of tissue paper...can you blame the boy though, it is so bright and beautiful, how could you not want to eat it?? Even when were at home, all he wants to do is eat toilet paper all day long...sometimes Eric gets mad at me because I let him. :) (Aw come on, who am I to deny my son his favorite food??)
The cousins! (and Mal eating more paper)
Mal LOVED Grandpa and grandma!! Actually, his favorite new word is grandpa. When we were at the mall the other day he randomly yelled, "Ooooh! Grandpa!" to an inocent man walking by.
The guy turned around and waved- apparently he gets called grandpa often. :)
While were on vacation Malak decided to learn a million new words. Here is his list of words: Yellow, blue, Grandpa, GG (my grandma), banana, thank you, ball, apple, wow, yessss, mama, dada, more, all done, diaper, poop, yeah, oatmeal, oh no, uh-oh, dog, woof, Shiloh (his cousin), Tia (his aunt), Doodoo (his uncle, don't ask). Not bad, right?? I'm such a proud mama!
(toys are boooring, can a guy get some paper??)
And this is how I found Malak today. Glorious.
Here is my dear, dear husband...He leaves at about 6:45am so he is up and gone before I wake up. On this particular day he came home from work and I was APPALED to find that he had gone to work with THIS hair!! He does not work in a casual enviroment- it is a very nice business office. I laughed for about 2 hours and warned him that the blog world would see this grave mistake he made. Bless his little heart... :) (Tamatha, Emilee, I can't believe you guys saw him like this at work and didn't make him fix it!) :)
