Splish, splash, Chase was takin' a bath...

This kid absolutely cracked himself (and his mother) up in the bathtub tonight. Who knew the simple act of splashing water everywhere was the funniest thing imaginable?!?

Sometimes... just every once in a while... the good guys win!

Chase was nearly inconsolable when the bad guys led 50-54 at halftime, but he learned from Daddy that you've gotta believe, and the Celtics came back to beat the Lakers, 109-96. What a good lesson for the Cajun Critter and a good birthday present for his dad.

Green Day

Chase took advantage of the continued warm weather to roll through The Denver Botanic Gardens today. His constant giggles throughout our tour made his parents re-discover the humor inherent in flora.

Rec Center

Chase enjoys christening some toys at a "sneak peak" of the new Central Park Rec Center in Stapleton. Looks pretty good for a kid with a low grade temperature.

Bust A Move

Some nights, Chase likes to fire up the stereo, grab his corncob pipe, and trip the light fantastic. If you had his moves, so would you.

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

Um, he likes this... really...

Here are my questions...

For Trane: Why in the heck are you just sitting there as he does this?

For Chase: Just what are you planning to do with that right finger?

Cowboy Up!

Chase enjoyed (and constantly screeched at) the animals at the National Western Stock Show. It is, after all, the "Superbowl of Livestock Shows." Wecome to the West, Young Man.

Unchain My Heart

Kid, if we opened that gate, you'd tumble down the stairs. It's for your own good, really. Are you scared straight, yet?

Reading is FUNdamental

While we were sitting at the kitchen counter, Chase was laughing hysterically. We turned around and this is what we saw. He loves looking at other baby's faces.
