And we can't forget his favorite pasttime - attempting to destroy the house....Notice the pictures stop here because I had to drop the camera and get in my defensive squat in order to start blocking all of the plastic kitchen utensils that were about to fly at my head. I've given up hope for having scratch free floors. My floors are TORN UP from all of the junk Hunter throws around as hard as he possibly can. I can only imagine the sports dreams that are racing through James's head everyday as Hunter hurls things into the ground. No sports dreams here in my head though. And no dreams of smooth, shiny floors either. Oh the sacrfices I make for that sweet baby...I mean toddler:)

Carly, if you're reading this, I love you! I'll totally be the president of your fan club! Please don't stop singing! Don't deny us your talent!
I'm going to go lay in bed and pout now. Or maybe even cry.

Since we worked so hard in the sun yesterday, we were totally lazy today. After church Hunter took a 2 1/2 hour nap...and so did James and I. Then 2 1/2 hours later, Hunter took another 1 1/2 hour nap...and so did James and I. I think I'm going to be paying tonight when I can't fall asleep.
In between our naps, we put in one of Hunter's Baby Einstein dvds. He's never been interested in tv (except the intro song to Sesame St and then Elmo's part of Sesame St 45 minutes later), but today we thought we'd give it another try. Hunter sat just long enough for me to get this picture...
Again, aren't they so cute?!
On a totally unrelated note, Hunter started using the big bath about 3 weeks ago and he LOVES it. We had tried the big bath 2 other times and the kid freaked. ear.piercing.screams y'all. He did not like it, and he let us know. I'm sure the neighbors considered calling CPS. He's over it now though. I took video of the first big boy bath but I'm not smart enough to figure out how to save videos from my camcorder onto my computer, so I had to settle on some pictures from tonight's bath...
Notice the do. He needs a hair cut bad, but I'm totally nervous to do it, and I can't bring myself to pay the kid haircutting place $15 (yes, FIFTEEN DOLLARS) for two little snips.
Y'all have a great week!

As always, I tried to document each step of the day. I did forget a picture of the guest of honor, though. Sorry Court! Unfortunately, about 12 months ago I became one of those annoying women who only takes pictures of her kid.
Here we are before the games began. You can tell Hunter is really excited...
This was Hunter for the majority of the time we were at the bowling alley. Maybe the nasty stank of smoke filled carpet was more than he could handle...
He quickly cheered up when I set him down and he found his paci (the paci is definitely Hunter's favorite thing...probably more than food...or sleep...or even me)...
He checked out the bowling ball and was pretty intrigued (oh! there's aunt courtney's profile in the background! good. see. i still take pictures of other humans that were not once in my womb. not annoying at all i tell you. not.at.all.)...
Uncle Anson lured Hunter out to attempt to bowl...
But he quickly turned back because the bowling ball was seriously too heavy for him. In the end, cousin Zack found one that was just his size, though!

After mommy set up my tent, she went all the way to the other end and started banging the ground trying to get me to crawl to her. I looked at her,
and I felt very sad that she was going to make me crawl through to her.
But then I saw that she had laid a blanket down for me, so I decided to stop the tantrum and go for it.
I was soon filled with regret for my choice when I felt just how prickly that grass was.
But when I reached the blanket I was totally happy again. Because I am one. And one year olds can be very moody about things like this. Especially one year olds named Hunter. Or so my mom says.
Until finally I reached her and pulled up to hug her TIGHTLY!
I LOVE hugs!
Mommy was trying to get the perfect shot of us, but she wasn't having much luck.
She finally realized that she wasn't going to master the perfect angle while holding all 20 pounds and 13 ounces of me in one arm and the camera in the other.I'm such a cuddly baby. Fickle and moody, but cuddly.

He'll even sit in our laps on the new patio furniture for like 5 whole minutes. That must be a record for healthy 1 year olds.
Here Hunter's singing his favorite song, the itsy bitsy spider, with mommy. I could seriously sing that song ALL DAY LONG and the kid would not grow weary of it.
