January 2010

Morning, as Owen is getting dressed for work.

Conal: You look cute?

Owen: No, I don’t look cute.

Conal (concerned): You look cute?

Owen: No. I don’t look cute.

Conal (smiling, head cocked to the side): You look cute?

Owen: OK, yes, I guess I look cute.

Late morning, after combing Conal’s hair and washing his face.

Conal: I look cute?

Me: Yes, you do. You look very look cute.

Conal: I awfully cute.

Me: Yup. You sure are.

Conal (smiling, head cocked to the side):  You cute, Mama.

I guess we’re just a bunch of cuties. In Conal’s mind at least!


These aren’t the best photos I’ve ever taken of Conal, but they’ll have to do. Here he is on each of his three New Year’s Days:

January 1, 2008 (6 months old)

January 1, 2009 (18 months old)

January 1, 2010 (30 months old)

He’s gone from baby to kid –and remains tons of fun.
