So live and let die...

You ain't so tough...

I was in the midst of doing dishes when I looked through the kitchen window above the sink and saw a sight that sent me running for the digital camera. The fly was surely thinking how lucky he was to be a housefly and the grasshopper was probably thinking, “So close and yet so far.” It was an awesome moment and I’m glad I got to capture it on film. Sometimes the difference between life and death is as tenuous as being on the right side of a pane of glass.

"Hey ,mom, can we watch Rug Rats again?"

For those who have requested some pictures of the little one I offer up this picture of him in the television room looking more entertaining than any reality show you care to name. My gosh he is just getting cuter with every passing day. You all had best be hiding your daughters because he is going to be a real lady killer.

"Yeah, I'm loving this..."

Micah is now eating his first solid foods. The doctor finally cleared him to begin eating rice cereal and the boy really seems to like it. I just can’t believe how much he’s grown in the four months since he’s been with us. I love him so very much and his momma even more so for bringing such a wonderful miracle into our lives.

Well, that about wraps it up for today. The summer is drawing to a close and winter will soon be upon us. I’m sure we'll all have much to blog about in the cold months ahead and I can hardly wait to read the stories you have to tell.

Peace and prosperity be to you all...

Micah appears to be a keeper. What a cutie! He could be a gnome... ; )

BTW, nice to see you back in Bloggerville. Your comment about winter coming is right on - now is BUSY, but eventually, when the cold winds blow, we'll all have a bit more time to blog.

He is such a cutie. I am happy to hear that he enjoys his cereal.

Great pictures of the insects. Besides taking photographs of cemeteries, I also like my bug pictures.

Seems as though the cutie felt sort of sick - Must have been he heard that idiotic crap coming from the Chimpy Cowboy down in New Orleans?

Keep the pics of the wee one coming!

That's a pretty good looking kid there. I mean, for a kid and all. Babies aren't really my thing. I'm not much of a kid person. But they loooooooooove me for some reason.

Winter is coming? Wait! We have to have fall first. And I know fall is coming cause college football season kicks off this weekend!

LOL Definitely a cutie!!! But, I can definitely say I'm not worried about him breakin my daughter's heart. She's just a couple of years shy of old enough to baby-sit. *grin* Gonna have to find some other girls for your boy to flirt with. *wink*

I love that wide-eyed curious look on his face. You can tell he's as inquisitive as his daddy!

Dirk. I don't know if you've seen this: http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com/ or not, but it ties back to what you were talking about a couple of weeks back (though their dates are different from the dates I've seen elsewhere & that you posted). I just posted a link on my blog as well. Check it out. It's a long view, and whether one believes everything espoused or not, it's very, very increadibly thought provoking. I think you'll appreciate it. Heck, I've read enough of your posts to be almost 100% certain you'll appreciate it.
