MAY I share a few pics?

Swimming with my water baby. He likes it.

Gma Kristy, the human pacifier.

Oli playing big brother while waiting for Mom and Dad to stop talking after church...

Isa enjoying the pool this summer. We swam a lot more than we ever have this year.

He's just cute.

There's the cart seat!

Game night with the Bradleys and Brightons. It's become a tradition that is seldom kept up, but we all talk about. You know, "Hey, we should play games again." "Yeah, we should..."

Angel, Angel @ 1 year, and Alma (only 4 months old at this time) in the outfit Angel wore at 1 year old. Cuties.

Jane feeding her baby brother. Why is this such a fun thing to do, I do not know!

He's just so cute in the big fat recliner.

Sue. These 2 just look so good together.

Mau Mau and Alma trying to get both hands into his mouth, oh, sorry was that obvious?

I just love this shot of Jane holding Alma. If it looks like he's much too big for her to hold him, it's because he is, but he doesn't seem to mind.

When Pau Pau visits somebody's guitar must come out and be played. It's tradition!

This is Alma's official first bowl of cereal. Mau Mau was given the privilege of serving it.

He's a very strong boy.

All the family @ Alma's blessing day at church, the first weekend in May. Robert's parents came from Cali just for this, Robert's aunt came in from Baytown, and Michael & Ally drove from their place near downtown Houston. Friends that came but had to leave before we got pics were the Prestons and Haines. It was very beautiful to see all those handsome Priesthood holders up on the stand surrounding our little man to give him a name and a blessing.

H, Jane, and Alma at the car place to fix something...

Sitting up!

Making cards for the Holmstead cousins with Gma Kristy.

This is one of the last times Alma fit into his version onesie. He's version 1.3.2011 btw.

Ah, Horatio. What a name for a little man with so much to show the world.

When you've got pigtails, you have to twirl them in the mirror!

Two rattles! (this was the first time he really held onto them)

Loving on Mau Mau at Aunt Tricia's house the night of Zack's HS graduation!

in no particular order: April (the month) pics.

Ah, classic. Sleeping sifties.

I didn't have my cart seat dug out of a closet somewhere yet, so I sat Alma on a blanket and sort of strapped him into the cart with my wrap. Jane enjoyed sitting with him.

Gotta get those kids reading shel silverstein early.

This one is just so darn cute, Alma sleeping with hand in mouth and Jane snuggled up next to him watching tv.

Gma and Gpa Lewis visited in March for Alma's blessing. As this was the end of the month, and the blessing was the first Sunday in May, you'll have to wait for that post for blessing pics. Sorry.

Two of my boys at the skating rink for Robert's bday, mid April (yes, my husband's birthday is in April; it's kismet).

Jane and Horatio loving on Alma while the older 3 sifties are in school.

A big brother is the best!

Alma taking his first official bath. This was the very beginning, before the stark nakedness (like how I spared you those pics?). Our water baby enjoyed it very much in the bath Charlotte and Jason passed on to us. (btw, LOOK at those legs, you'd say those are the thighs of a normal sized kid, right? Wait 'til you see him now!)

Mommy and Alma at the skating rink for Daddy's bday.

I'll do another post of May pics tomorrow, hopefully. I hate it when people do a bunch of posts on the same day, and I am too lazy to upload more pics and have to reorder them all right now!
