Baby Push Ups

My little guy is growing to fast.

This is his newest trick aside from the new tooth.

He says first you get in this position:

Then you keep you back straight like this:

Make sure you keep your chin up:

And then strike a pose:

First tooth

The first tooth came in on December 1st.

Unfortunately my camera was not working and I didn't get a picture of it.

It got knocked off the table by one of my kids while I was transferring pictures.

Thankfully I had bought insurance on it and it was replaced.

I wasn't sure that I was going to have a camera for Christmas.

I sent it in on December 4th.

It was supposed to be repaired or replaced in 10 business days.

On December 21st when I still had no camera I called.

No one knew what was going on with it except for the fact that I was getting a new one.

The problem - no one knew if it had shipped or not.

An email was sent and I was told to call back on Monday.

Monday I called back and the one person who could answer the question was not there.

I was told I could buy a camera and return it when mine came.

Not what I wanted to hear at all.

So I went and took a shower so I could get ready to go get a new camera.

When I came out there was a PINK box waiting for me.

Christmas Eve and what showed up?

My new, upgraded, 2 lenses included CAMERA!!

And along with it -

The ability to take pictures of this:

Angelina EspalinOCEANSIDE – A year-long investigation into the death of a 4-year-old girl ended Monday night with the arrest of her young foster mom, Oceanside police announced Tuesday.
Dania Haros, 23, is being held without bail on suspicion of murder and violent assault on a child. She is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday.
Angelina Espalin died on Nov. 19, 2006, after suffering blunt-force head injuries, according to the Medical Examiner's Office.
Haros and her husband took the unconscious girl to Tri-City Medical Center at 8:30 a.m., and concerned hospital staff members reported her head injuries to police, said Oceanside police Sgt. Leonard Mata.
She was airlifted to Rady Children's Hospital, where she died later that day.
The death was ruled a homicide a few days later after an autopsy.
Investigators said it didn't appear a weapon was used.
Angelina and her 2-year-old sister lived with the couple for five months before she was killed, said Oceanside police Sgt. Karen Laser. Her sister was placed with another family after the death.
