By popular demand

Well, Valkyrie demanded it — and she’s popular, right?

So, here’s Trevor:

C'mon, Valkyrie, tell me he's cute, because he's CUTE!! He's studying hard there, trying to figure out how to open his birthday presents.

Here he's enjoying his favorite gift:

THE WRAPPING PAPER! (Which his Mom, my daughter, tells me, he managed to get enough of in his mouth that he later gagged on the paper and threw up!)

And here he is in the tee shirt that Grammy Carol made for him:

There! Those are the pictures of my grandson that were demanded of me.


(Shhhh! I may have discovered something important!)

Remember last week how two different electrical appliances just suddenly stopped working on the same day? And I pretended indifference and just basically walked away whistling?

Well, today, the battery-powered appliance started working again! Same batteries, nothing different. It just started working. Now, what's up with that?

My compressor still doesn't work, though! And of course, of the two it is BY FAR the more expensive.

I'll give it a few more days. Maybe...

He's rather adorable, isn't he?

LOL! That last pic is priceless. He has this look on his face that says, "Come on, say it. You know you love me!"

SHHHH, don't tell it it's sick. Something else will want to commiserate and go on the fritz too.

now he is a cutie!

and hey.. 1 out of 2 aint bad!

(Shhh dont tell anyone I said aint..)

Valkyrie said...

I'M popular??!? What like Cheerleader popular or just 'best-looking' math geek popular? Ok just kidding (clutches sides/love-handles laughing very loud). Yes, of course Trevor is SUPER cute!! My Bubkins is nearly that age - or at least he will turn one in August - I can't wait to see it - and take pictures of it! That t-shirt is so brilliant by the way - it's given me some ideas which I'll have to 'craft' and then blog about!

What a li'l doll! Babies are so sweet at that age. My youngest is 17 months old. Where did the time go?

Found your comment on Zinnia Hope's blog. She's one of our FB authors. I promote like mad, but I have to be honest and say that Ms. Hope's writing style is picturesque and she weaves a grand tale. I don't understand why an agent hasn't snatched her up by now.

Trevor is adorable must have a lot of your qualities, don't you say John. :-)

As for your appliances. My, my, my, are they just not playing with their expiration date or what! Threaten to replace them if they don't behave.
