Playing Ball

posted in: Monkey My Son, Wordful Wednesday 0 comments

Hey, a ball!

It’s a basketball Mama, of course I’m throwing it.

Strolling, all casual.

Playing ball is hard work. Just taking a break.

1. I know it’s a basketball, Mama, but I like kicking it. 2. I know my pants are dirty. I’m a boy!

All done, Mama!

Linking up with Kiddothings’ Picnesday.

    He is so cute!

    Are those the shorts that had the ‘wash when dirty’ directions? I think that applies here. πŸ˜‰

    He is so beautiful, Alison. I can’t get enough of those little boy legs!

    I especially like the last picture. Is it just me, or does he look older in that one? Sort of like a foreshadowing of what he’ll look like in five years.

    I know, perish the thought. Hold onto this stage as long as you can.

      When he was a baby, EVERYONE said he looked like his father 100%. Your comment makes me happy.

  • October 19, 2011 Elena

    He is so cute! When he’s squatting down to pick up the ball – he looks exactly like you. What a doll!

  • October 19, 2011 Anna

    Haha, his shorts! OMG! My son makes himself dirty all over without realizing it, except for his hands. If he gets something on them, he needs to go and wash them immediately, even if they are only a little bit sticky. It is so funny, he can have a lot of food all around his face and still not care until his hands gets dirty. πŸ˜€

    Who are you and who is this grown man child? What is he, like four feet tall?

      He’s gonna be taller than me when he’s 5, right?

    I just saw this.
    I don’t know how to tell you this Alison but that Monkey is seriously good-looking. You have major mob scenes in your future. He’s that good-looking. Doesn’t even look like a tot – more like a mini Oscar-winning actor who also plays lead guitar and sings for a fab band or something. I didn’t even pay attention to the ball or the dirty boy pants, he’s that cute.
