Babies and beer

9.21.2011

What's wrong with this picture.

Photobucket

I know. Absolutely horrible, right?

I mean, look at all that gray in my husband's beard! So not ok. Better get to dying that shit babe. Momma no likie.

Oh wait. You weren't thinking that the fact that my one year old is reaching for the beer that my three year old is pretending to drink was what was wrong with the picture, were you?

Phew. I mean, that's a regular occurrence in our house.

I'm not sure what it was, but on this particular day, the babe was all obsessed with daddy's beer.

Like, had to have it.

For example:

I saw him down on this lil' rock here for an impromptu photo shoot. I had the beer in my hand thinking it would make the babe smile when I "peek-a-booed" it from behind the camera.

Uh. He just got pissed.

Photobucket

And more pissed.

Photobucket

And even more pissed.

Photobucket

'Til I handed it over.

Photobucket
(I can just imagine what he's thinking; "that's right bish. Don't mess with the Boss.")

Then he just chilled.

Photobucket

And showed a hint of a smile.

Photobucket

All is good. Weez happy now.

Photobucket

At least all was good until tragedy struck and the beer can got pierced by a sharp rock. And sprayed all over babe's face.

And then hubs picked it up and shotgunned the rest.

We are fabulous parents.

Oh, say "hey" to my oldest, never wanting to be left out. Pretty sure he knocked the baby off that rock and said baby is just to the right of this picture crying tears of horror.

Photobucket

And yes, that is pink polish on his toenails.

Oh, say "hey" to the hubs again, with his nice frosted facial hair.

Photobucket

Hey hubs.

Oh look, a baby in a tree.

Photobucket

I sat him up there and told him to hang on and not to let go.

Photobucket

For the sake of my mother not getting extremely mad at me, let's just say that he did not in fact fall out of the tree. And not only did he not fall from that tree, but he did not fall flat on his face and cry for a good thirty minutes.

He did not fall from the tree. Are we clear on that?

Good.

You know what I love? This one.

Photobucket

And myself when I'm having a good hair day.

Photobucket

Ok fine. So the baby is having a better hair day than me.

He represents well.

  20. I am in love with that one shoulder top! Too cute!

    And my nephew is 20 months old and he cries for it too - usually in restaurants where it looks like we are horrible aunts/parents. Making it look like we actually give it to him. The joys of babies : ) I wish I had my own!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Awesome! Loved this post. :) I have so many pics of me as a baby with a beer can. :) Love your top!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Funny thing? We have so many pics of Carly with beer cans in her hands. She walks around the house with them AND WHAT DO YOU KNOW... she cries hysterically when we take them away. I make myself feel better saying that she likes the cold can on her teeth, not that she will be a lush like her mama :)

    and hubbs said, "DONT YOU DARE PUT THOSE PICS OF CARLY ON YOUR BLOG WITH BEER CANS!" Well... now I'm going to show him yours and hopefully he'll give in :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. LOL!!!

    My son is the same way with hubby's beer bottles!

    When hubs has it poured in a glass kiddo doesn't seem to notice or care, but when it's in the bottle in eye sight or within reach... he's there grabbing for it!

    Same with pop cans!

    Just to fulfill his curiosity we handed him one once, just to see what he'd do - he had no idea what to do with it, just kinda starring at it, lol...

    The beer bottles though... he seems to think that if it's in a bottle that it's something he should be having too! lol...

  55. Your youngest makes the BEST angry face!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Okay, you look like a super model in those pictures. How have you birthed two kids?! I kinda think it's the most hilarious thing that he wouldn't stop crying until he could hold the beer. Ha. Starting early!

    ReplyDelete
  57. hahahaha

    i am obsessed with the crying tears of horror and then the calm after the storm because he's holding a beer. oh these pictures will be priceless when they're in their twenties.

    and you and baby should be hair models!

    ReplyDelete
