Deep Conversation

The wonderful staff over at Rock My Photography is having another photo contest I thought I’d enter.  This time around the theme is ‘Father’s Day’.

This image was taken last July, before I upgraded to my Canon 7D; it was the dark period in my life when I had to resort to a hand-me-down point and shoot!  Ha!

Regardless, its still one of my favorite images of G with his Daddy.  I have no idea what they were talking about… But if I know Ray and had to guess, I’m sure it was football.

G & Dad - Deep Convo


G – 15mo

Gideon had his 15mo wellness check this past Friday.  He currently weighs 22lbs15oz (26%) and is 31 1/4in tall (54%).  Doc says she doesn’t have any concerns, but we do need to increase his water intake.  Because of the issue with his kidney, we need to make sure he’s taking in plenty of H20… She says he should be constantly flushing out his system (ie: constantly peeing).

Poor dude got three pricks on his leg(s) – DTaP (Diphtheria/Tetanus/Pertussis), MMR (Measles/Mumps/Rubella), & a Chickenpox vaccine.  The pic below is from our ride home… Needless to say, he was a cranky/tired little G… Just check out those red, droopy eyelids!  I felt so bad for him.  😦

Tired G

He still hasn’t mastered the walking thing, still a little shaky when he tries to stand on his feet.  He’s gotten pretty damn good at cruising and “knee walking” though.  He’s taken a few tiny steps, but if we hold out our hands in an attempt to release his grip on the furniture, he will almost always drops to his knees.  Cheater.

We bought him this musical walking toy for his 1st birthday back in February, but only recently has he learned what its really for.  I was able to capture a few pics this past weekend as he was cruising down the hallway with it.
