The Deadlift

 We hit the pumpkin patch this past weekend with the boys and although I took at least a hundred pictures, this one made me laugh out loud.  I think Baby O has a good future in the deadlift-perfect technique at just 13 months.


  1. What a perfect pose. Future body builder, lol?

  2. I think it's the way his little booty is sticking out that shows what an effort this is. Seriously, if you adjust the weight he is lifting for his own minimal body weight and height than this is a really impressive lift. Especially for a baby that just learned how to stand on his own two feet *seems like just a few posts ago. Whoa. We also use the exersaucer around our house when we are wielding sharp objects. Although we have renamed it, "the circle of neglect." :)

  3. My fave pic is the one at the end with you and Baby O pointing! How is the new Mengestu book??? I wanted more out of his last novel - Beautiful Things that Heaven Bears. When it ended, I was left feeling like it was incomplete. That there was still more story left to tell..... Hopefully, this is what I've been waiting for! We are # 44 on the library request list, though ): And, I hadn't heard about Chains of Heaven -- and neither has my library! Will look into getting it gently used from Amazon -- thanks for the tip!
