12.17.10: Who is this Santa guy anyway?

Hey guys, A.J. here!
Today, Mama and Daddy took me to see "Santa."
They made a pretty big deal out of it and got me all dressed up.
Apparently Santa didn't get the dress up memo. It looks to me like he's in his jammies!
To be honest, I'm not too impressed with this guy, but I hear he brings presents so maybe I should keep my opinion to myself...

12.12.10: It Snows in Wisconsin

Hi guys! A.J. here!

If you've seen the news at all this weekend you probably know that we've had a little bit of snow this weekend. Mama has taken to calling it "Snowmageddon!" because of all of the talk about it on tv. Well, I am here to tell you we have a whole bunch of snow here, and it is very, very cold.

I know this isn't my first winter, but last year at this time I was too little to spend time out in the cold, so I missed out on the white stuff. This year, I am prepared with new snow pants, boots, and all the other necessary things to keep me warm so Mama and Daddy decided to take me out to see the snow for myself this morning.

Here's a look at my first taste of snow...
First, I got to open my first Christmas present of the year from my Anderson Grandparents. They sent me some snow pants, which I definitely needed for my snow adventure!
I don't have a whole lot of experience with opening presents, so at first I thought it would be fun to climb up on the box instead of opening it.

As you can see, getting me ready for the great outdoors took several layers.

Let me tell you, walking outside in the snow is NOT easy! That stuff is slippery and the boots and extra layers made me a little wobbly!

Thankfully my daddy was close by to help me get up when I fell down.

After just a few minutes outside, Mama and Daddy decided 30 mph winds and wind chills below zero were just a little too cold for a dude my size, so we headed back inside.

And while the big people were putting away all the snow gear, I took advantage of the alone time to climb up to the kitchen table and eat some leftover bacon from breakfast. All that snow time makes a boy hungry!

I hope I can play in the snow again soon!

In honor of Halloween...

The blog returns from the dead!

Here are some pictures from our Halloween celebration. We started off the day with carving the pumpkins we picked out at Cuff's Farm earlier this month:

Then, it was time to put the pumpkins on the porch and take A.J. for his debut as Hamburger Homburg:

(with his buddy Batman)

Overall, AJ wasn't quite sure what to think about trick or treating. He didn't feel like carrying his pumpkin bucket, he wanted to run across the front lawn instead of walking to the door, and once he did make it to the front door he was more interested in letting himself into the house than getting any candy. We'll have to practice for next year...

In the meantime, Happy Halloweenie from The Homburgs!

05.25.10: Walking A.J.

It's official. Our little monkey man is on the move!

He's kind of sneaky about it though. Walking around like nobody's business until I whip out the camera phone.
Here's a few steps I managed to catch yesterday while A.J. was helping me put away laundry!

05.09.10: Celebrating Being Your Mama

My dear sweet baby A.J.,

Today we celebrated my first Mother's Day together and I couldn't be happier.
Thank you for the flowers, and the cards, and the coffee, and the dishwasher.
Thank you for the two good naps you took today.
Thank you for the smiles and cuddles before bed tonight.

But most of all, thank you for making me a mama.
Thank you for making my dreams come true.
Thank you for teaching me so much about myself.
Thank you for showing me how much I can so on such little sleep.
Thank you for helping me take life a little less seriously.

I love you sweet boy!

Check me out!

3.29.10: People We Love: Mirielle Mabel!

Hi, guys! A.J. here! I know I've been quiet for the past few weeks, and I have a lot to catch you up on. But all of that has to wait for a little while because today I am here with a very special message for my girlfriend Miri! Today is her first birthday!!! Yes, that makes her an older woman! But really, we were supposed to be closer in age. It's just that Miri came a little earlier than anyone expected.

This is my first picture with Miri. Auntie Barb took it at the baby shower for Miri's mama. We planned to take another one at the baby shower for my mama, but like I said, Miri had other plans and decided to be born a few weeks early.

Here is a picture from our first big meeting. As you can see, I came on a little strong.

But I must have done something right, because Miri is quite clearly checking me out just a few minutes later!

And by the time we saw each other again in December, I knew to play it cool!

I was in Colorado this weekend when Miri had her birthday party, but Auntie Barb brought me back a goodie bag and a party hat so I could celebrate!

So, Happy Birthday Miri! I can't wait until we get to visit again soon!
