Friday Funsie

This is what I call the Teddy Bear Tackle. 
It happens about 20 times a day here in the Petzold house. 

1. Grab Mr. Rupp.

2. Run towards Mama.

3. Brace for impact!

4. Tackle Mama and collapse in her lap.

5. Roll to the other side and repeat Steps 1-5 again!
His boyish nature... 
I love it.

This was a big week for Henrik.
On Tuesday, February 10th, he took his first steps! 

He's been a lean, mean, walking machine ever since.
Things just got a lot more interesting around here. 
 I love seeing him walk around the corner or walk around the kitchen chasing Ruby and giggling.
It's so stinkin' cute I can barely stand it! 

Speaking of giggling- I caught some serious giggle action on film last night. 
Todd always gets the best giggles out of him!

 Now you can have a good weekend!

Friday Funsie

Smitten kitten. 

Henrik adores all the women in our family- especially the littlest one :) 

Chatting with Mina about her day at preschool

He watched her every move

Aunt Ashy snuggles

Sweet Mina blowing him some kisses

He's in awe


Making funny faces at each other

I'm so glad these two are buddies
It was a wonderful day. 
These two nuggets melt my heart!

Friday Funsie

Every time the refrigerator door is open longer than 2 seconds a little boy scampers over and ALWAYS grabs the same bottle and scurries off. 

What? Am I not supposed to have this?

I just want to bite it...and maybe taste it a little...
Just kidding Mom!
Someday he will actually get to taste the glorious chocolately liquid that's inside that bottle. 

Then he'll really come running when the fridge is open. 

Hope your weekend is full of sweet surprises!

Little Stinker

There's nothing more fun than seeing Henrik's personality take shape. 

He's definitely exerting mega-boy stereotypes these days. 

He wants to climb up on the couch and swat the lamp on the end table. 

Anything with wheels he looooves. 

He is rough and likes to pull my hair. 

He will wrestle with his bear, Mr. Rupp.

He loves it when he gets a big reaction for something he does-whether it's a noise he makes or a yelp from hair he's just pulled- he loves it all. 

But I also notice he loves to hide small toys. Under the oven. Or under couches. 

Little stinker. 

I watched him the other day do exactly that. So I grabbed my camera of course :) 

Here he is at work...
He's innocently playing, so I go grab some towels to put in the wash. 

I come out of the laundry room to find him like this... 
(he has managed to pick up a random white string from somewhere...)

Here's what he's looking for-

So I fish it out
His face is hilarious in this picture. 

Literally two seconds later I see him doing this

Rotten tomato!

Whenever I can't locate a toy or puzzle piece I know that I must look under every piece of furniture and the oven.

I've tried stuffing a towel below the oven to discourage the hiding of toys, but that lasted about 5.2 seconds.  Both he and Ruby were trying to play with the towel. Bummer.

Oh well, I'll just need to check for toys every time before I preheat the oven!
