Several recent pictures of Snuggle Bug
I can't believe it! Blogger actually let me upload several pictures without any issues. Alleluia!

Before I get started explaining these pictures, I'd like to encourage you go scroll down to my previous post and check out my Blog of the Week if you haven't already!

So, I thought it might be fun to share some recent pictures of Snuggle Bug that I've taken over the past few days. Of course, they're not face-forward pictures, as is my style, but I still think you'll enjoy them. Isn't my Snuggle Bug just adorable?!

8/6/06- This picture was taken at a professional baseball game. Oronzo and I took Snuggle Bug to see this game and we were amazed when he lasted through all 9 innings with no problems! He cheered when the crowd cheered, he had fun watching the "ball", and he flirted with all the people around us.

8/7/06- This was taken at one of our local bookstores. They have an awesome kids corner that Snuggle Bug loves to play in. It has a train table, these fun chairs, and of course lots of children's books.

8/8/06- This is Snuggle Bug wearing a new outfit. He's 19 months old now, but he still wears mainly 12 month (as long as they're 2-piece) outfits. He's just now starting to fit into some of his 18 month 1-piece outfits. He's getting tall enough. I just love the little tug boat on his bottom and the matching hat. The hat he kept on all of 2 seconds, long enough for me to snap this shot.

8/8/06- This was taken at an outdoor wildlife museum. One of the volunteers was showing Snuggle Bug this cool hummingbird nest and Snuggle Bug was fascinated! The hummingbirds were amazingly friendly. They'd come flying right up to us, within touching distance!

8/10/06- These last 3 pictures were taken today. Snuggle Bug discovered my stash of hats (I have tons of them) and decided to try them on. I managed to snap a few cute shots!

Well, that's all for now. I hope you've enjoyed my little picture presentation!

Just for fun, please be so kind as to leave me a comment to let me which is your favorite picture and why.

Blogger's been behaving lately and I'm glad or we wouldn't have gotten to see these photos. He's so cute. It's hard for me to believe my 13 month old grandson, who is just barely starting to look like a toddler, will look like such a little kid in six months. Snugglebug is a little doll.

So sweet!!!!

When I found your blog, I read your entire adoption story. Although, not all at one time. What a touching story. Snuggle Bug is such a cute little guy. Isn't this age fun?? Glad that blogger let you load them without a hitch!

He's so cute, cute, cute! And you're a hat lady! I love hats.
Do you have a "Purple Hat Ladies" club down there? There's a local chapter here where I live and I get such a kick of the retired ladies walking around town, wearing their purple hats with red jackets, and oranges pants, with pink shoes, or whatever garish combo they can come up's a hoot!

At 6:23 PM, Blogger Granny said...

Darn. I have to choose? They're all darling but purple is my favorite color.

How could blogger even THINK of rejecting those photos? The nerve. I've got to go with the red outfit photo. It's beautiful. But then, the green hat is the one that he'll regret most in high school so that's a close second, just for the humiliation value.

my fave is the one with the tugboat on his bottom!!! so cute! also him looking up at the birdsnest is very sweet. no doubt about it...hes a cutie pie!

I have to say I like the red outfit best too:) The way he is walking, he looks so confidant:) What a cutie. His age is my favorite!!!! Their still somewhat of a baby, but you really get to see their unique personality come out with every day. Enjoy this time!!!!

Great pictures! I like he one wih him looking at the nest. He indeed was fascinated with it.

I love the picture of him in the red hat. My son (and daughter too) love to dress up - there's something so cute about a kid in clothes way too big for him.

At 4:53 AM, Blogger Jen said...

How adorable is this?????? So the beach shot.

At 6:38 AM, Anonymous chelle said...

wow!!! He is so so adorable!!!! Ok I cannot CANNOT pick a favorite! They are all so cute!

At 7:06 AM, Blogger Michelle said...

He's just so darn cute! I wish I could have met him in person with you in NM! I like the 2nd one of him reading the book - he just looks so engrossed and serious!

I also like the trying on hats one too...cute!

At 11:19 AM, Blogger JennG said...

Your son is one of the cutest boys I've ever seen, absolutely precious!! =) My favorite is the photo of him reading the book, something sure is fascinating in there. Thanks for sharing!

At 2:07 PM, Blogger Mama Duck said...

He's so cute! I love them all, I can't just pick one!!

At 4:09 PM, Blogger Kathleen Marie said...

Pick One?? Are you crazy! He is just adorable!

At 6:30 PM, Blogger Karla said...

My, how he's grown! What a handsome fella!
Okay, photographically speaking (is that a word? ;) ), I like the tugboat picture. It looks like it could on the front of a greeting card. (Our Bean was still in some 12-month stuff at that age too.)
From a deeper mother-like perspective, I like the hummingbird nest. I just love to watch little ones' faces when they discover something new, which is TONS of stuff at this age!! :)
They're all great pictures! Thanks for sharing!

OW! He is such a cutie! Good enough to put in the movies :) Really! I love them all but for some reason I particularly like the striped red outfit. Lovable snuggle B! Btw, may I tag you to join my booklovers list in my entry today? Please check it out. See you online!

LOVE the one of him in the red outfit, walking away from you. Too, too sweet. What a fun age....

At 3:23 PM, Anonymous Heather said...

I love the hat pics. Of course it might be because I have the same mirror and my own stash of hats that my kids love to try on.

The red outfit shot is most apealiing photographiically speaking.

It's impossible to pick a favorite picture. They are all so adorable ... the hat photos are terrific - as is the photo of reading a book & checking out the bird's nest.

This is a wonderful age. I'm just amazed at how quickly it seems to be going by and how our babies have evolved in to little kids ... in a period of WEEKS. It's mind boggling. Enjoy every moment!! :)
