One More


This is our oldest son, who will be 36 in March. After those initial months of not sleeping more than 20 minutes at a time, raising this baby was relatively easy. He was a congenial and happy toddler. Like many toddlers, he had his parents wrapped around his stubby little fingers. He cleverly developed his own expression for weasling another cookie from his parents. What were these magic words? "One more...last one" As I remember, our little one would say this after being told that this was the last cookie for the day. He also liked to have a cookie for each hand. How did this bargaining for cookies work? Like a charm, who could say no to that sweet face?

WOW, when I first opened your link I was just wrapt!!! I could see the gorgeous expression on his face..all the innocence is there isn't it. Indeed, who could say no to that face? I have it with my four kids too, gotta love them :)
Memories to cherish :)
My favourite line from my baby Mia Now 3yrs old, is, "I do it, by my own self!", LOL.

Yes he was perfect. At the present time, he is a super husband and father. Goodness all around.

Too cute! What beautiful blue eyes! I like to have a cookie in each hand, too. I've enjoyed scrolling down the page looking at all of your pictures. Luke's haircut made me LOL!! And I had a "Round TUIT" when I was a kid too.

Mama,
Thanks for stopping by my site. I left you a message, too. And the picture is very cute. It’s hard for a child to make a “bad” picture. I was cute as a kid, too. Now I am told that I look like Bill Clinton and that scares me to death. Being a veteran and a Republican I can’t think of a worse comparison – unless they said I looked like Ross Perot.

My GOSH what a cute lil' guy -- those eyes! They grow up so fast. My little red-headed guy (who looked like "Opie" at that age) is quickly approaching 21...

Thanks for you comment on my blog. Yup, that's moi on drums! (That was so. much. fun. I can't express the joy of having that experience!) I read "The Highest Tide" about a year ago, and absolutely loved it. The author is local, and he even emailed me after apparently finding my review on my blog. The story takes place in the direct vicinity of where my husband and I own waterfront property, so it was particularly special to us.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

I love your famly oriented blog. I too go back to old photos, and I know they have to grow up, but I get some tears missing those child rearing years.............. although grandchildren are even more perfect than children....selfishly want to keep them near forever.

And also, thanks for completing your assignment and turning it in on time. A+

Thought I would drop by, thanks for the visit. Your son was adorable, my son just turned 20 a few weeks ago. When he was little he never ate the cookies I gave him, he though they were treats for the dog.

A cookie for each hand. Now that is my kind of guy!

They all find those wonderful little ways to twist us all up and achieve their goal, don't they? Looks like a happy boy to me. I'm a double fisted cookie eater, too!

Buddy likes to stick out his pointer finger and say, "One more" with those puppy dog eyes. Your son was and I am sure still is a cutie!

Who could possibly resist a face like that?

Not me!
