"Okay... wait, Dad.... what are you putting in my mouth? What are you doing to me, Dad?"
"Okay, wait... Mom's doing it too. I've seen you guys do this before! I guess it's not so bad..."
"Hahaha! You can't see 'em yet, but inside this mouth are some gleaming, bright shiny new teeth!"

As usual, he reacted with glee! It is DEFINITELY Elmo's world!

Going to the park is definitely more enjoyable now that Jared is a bit more mobile, but perhaps in the future I should avoid the park when it is 100 degrees outside! Poor Jared was drenched within minutes and quickly got tired.
"Well, I can tell that this is gonna be fun for me at some point, but right now it's so hot out that my legs are pretty much congealed to this slide.... so no actually SLIDING is going on. Thanks for the moral support, Dad, but I think I'm gonna need some actual help here!"
"Hmm yea, Dad... you're not going any faster than I was! I'm just gonna climb over here and do this on my own!"
"Hmm... this round slide isn't much easier to get down! This is making me sleepy!"

Yesterday he fell while running through the house. Naturally, he is just fine... it definitely hurt me more than it hurt him! I keep telling myself he is just a normal boisterous one year old having normal toddler accidents, but it's no fun to watch at all!

He also loves his new big-boy, front-facing car seat (the Britax Marathon). He is MUCH happier in the car now. Thanks for the recommendation, Auntie Mia!
"Mom and Dad have tried to make me wear hats (unsuccessfully!) since I was a little guy but I never really understood why they kept putting stuff on top of my head..."
"Now I understand it a little more... and I can show my support for the Gators!"
"Okay, enough of the sporty Gator hat... I need my black Kangol for a night on the town!"
"Hahah.. How does this look?"

Here he is "singing" into the microphone that goes with his play piano. Occasionally he gets a bit overzealous with his singing. I think he believes it will get louder if he eats the microphone.
Sometimes his microphone just doesn't cut it anymore, so he goes for the big guns... Daddy's karaoke microphone! Again, he takes his singing very seriously. :)
This week he figured out how to use the harmonica and loves to pass it back and forth with Dad. In general he loves to take turns with his musical instruments. He will play a few notes, pass it to you, and when he thinks you've played long enough he will take it back!
