Happy Labor Day everyone! We finished one urban hike (that’s my fancy way of saying I pushed the stroller up and down hills in the neighborhood and then pushed it into town, baby included), brunch with friends, a long nap (we’re in nap transition – 2 naps to 1 nap) and are getting ready to head to the lake to catch those last rays of sun and the last hours of the day. I’ve been reading all your comments on the ‘Baby Got Sand‘ post and it’s funny that so many of your children liked remotes too. Go figure. It’s a universal (remote) thing! Above is Jamisen and his favorite toy, sleeping. Notice the button is firmly pushed down, even as he sleeps.
Hello? Hello? Yes, this is Jamisen. Who’s calling?
Babies are little geniuses!
I love his sleeping position. My 4 year old will still sleep like that sometimes and it is the cutest and seemingly most uncomfortable thing!
What fun to watch in grow!! He is one cutie pie! 🙂
What’s that saying about a man and his remote?:-)
Jamisen is always so cute. I just love looking at how much he’s grown and how happy he is.
Such a happy baby – we are extremely blessed with his good nature and his natural curiosity.
I swear, I think it’s a man thing directly linked into their very essences long before they are born.
I’m convinced about some of those things being hard-wired in; Jamisen practically drags me to construction sites to watch the trucks. It’s not me pulling him =) I have never watched so much construction and dump trucks (?!) in the entirety of my life.
Ahh, the memories… When my daughter (now 18,) was about that age, she thought it would be REALLY COOL to plop my stereo remote into my nice tall glass of ice tea.
Not cool, really. 🙂
But when calling for a replacement, the effervescent customer service rep found it hilarious.
Not hilarious. That little gadget cost me fifty bucks to replace – 1/3 of the original cost of the entire system! Not to mention…”remote ice cubes” really aren’t all that tasty, nor do they keep your tea REALLY COOL. 🙂
Oh man! That would have NOT been fun. Yikes. I will keep that in mind with Jamisen and all electronics =)
Jamisen is so cute with his remote. When my daughter was little, well until she started school really, she had a lamb, which is not uncommon. But when she was nervous or tired, she stuck a thumb in one lamb ear and a finger in the other and pinched the ears together. That’s how she would fall asleep. Weird, huh?
My friend had a little boy obsessed with the vacuum. He slept with a dustbuster every night. LOL
Jamisen’s second favorite ‘toy’ is the duster/broom. It must be something about the pushing. Maybe that’s why the Fisher Price Popcorn Poppers were so popular.
Your daughter and her little lamb is such a sweet story. =)

Maybe he is mimicking Mom and Dad?? How often does he see you push buttons on your android or the remote and see you talk on the phone. Someone once said “Don’t worry that your children don’t listen to you; be concerned that your children are always watching you.” Have FUN!
Exactly! And he does just that – he holds the remotes up to his ear and pretends to talk on them (!). He’s so cute with everything he does right now.
The other day, his Dad and I were having a terse discussion in the kitchen and he signed “All done! All done!” to us. It was a big reminder about just what you said – they’re always watching.

Seriously one of the cutest things ever! 🙂
We think so too. Seriously, the kid just melts my heart =)
Too cute 😉
He’s so gorgeous. My duaghter is almost 3 now and I’m starting to miss those innocent first forays into the world. My daughter Nahleli couldn’t get enough of our mobile phones. Mine went unnoticed in her toy box for days.. Enjoy it while it lasts Anne-Marie. He’s beautiful:)
Almost three? Wow, it seems so far away but I know it’s going to come so fast for us. =)
