More Odds & Ends

It's been a week since I've seen Nichole & Carter as they have been visiting down in Upstate New York.

Even though Nichole has been keeping me supplied with cute Carter videos via cell phone I've been going through some massive withdrawls (from both Mother & Child).

So once again I have sifted through the recent pics & vids in order to present you with the following:

"Okay I know I've rolled in some questionable materials in my time, but pulleeze, will someone change that kid's diaper!!!"

From the "Can you blame him?" Department:

Just like me, Carter's favorite place is snuggled up close with his Mom.

"Gimme little kees!"

Not that she doesn't get any attention, but...this is Athena's typical location whenever I am feeding Carter...right on my feet!

This pic was taken just before Carter & his Mom left last Sunday. Isn't that cute? I can almost hear Athena telling Carter that she is going to miss him.

...And now I can hear her saying, "Okay, bu-by...have a nice trip...don't let the door hit you on the way out...bon're burning daylight...alright, let's leave already!!!"

I was took this video just before they left. It reminds me of one of those man-on-the-street newscast bloopers. See for yourself...

Quite often, Carter looks like he so wants to say something and I'm always wondering what exactly it is.

I'd like to think that I could show him these videos when he's old enough so maybe he could fill me in...

Me: So, Carter check this looks like you want to say something. What is it? What possibly could you want to say? "Hello, Daddy"?..."Mommy, I prefer the right "side" to the "left"?..."Hey, Athena, let's play"?...what was it???

Carter: Hmmm, actually I think I do remember this...I was thinking...

Me: Yes, yes...?

Carter: I was thinking..."I gotta poop...uh, scratch that...I just pooped."

Me: ...

Athena & I were on our walk last night when she stopped in the middle of the road. It took me a couple of minutes to notice as I was multi-tasking (I was listening to a Compassionate Cooks podcast & surfing on the Black Berry).

As I looked up I saw what caught her was a deer. For the sake of safety, we walked off to the should where Athena at down. We spent the next 5 minutes silently observing each other. Seemingly unimpressed with us, the deer loped off.

It not rare that we see deer despite the fact that we reside smack dab between 2 of the busiest streets in the city.

The cool thing is that Athena (aside from she noticing them before I do) is so calm about seeing them. She is definitely NOT in cat mode!

I Swear to God!

As plain as day, he just said "Hi".

Of course, with us saying "Hi" back to him about 50 times over the next minute he might as well said "Bye" cuz he's starting to doze off.
