Henry Shenanigans - Part 5

I used to document the cute and crazy mischief making Henry did when he first started crawling and I wanted to start that back up again! I think I just got overwhelmed when he started walking because pretty much every day was FULL of shenanigans! But I think I want to share the high lights because he is just too funny. :) this one is entitled: Innocent Exposure.


Yesterday I was sitting on my couch nursing Miss Rose. Henry was in just a diaper and was crawling all over me (other nursing mamas with older kids- you know what I'm talking about!) and heard our cute neighbor girls playing on our porch. He crawled up on the top of our couch to sit on our window sill and hit the window to say hi to them. Since I was nursing I wasn't paying too close attention to what he was doing, but I heard him and the girls laughing and saying hi to each other. After a few minutes, I look up at Henry and (to my horror) find that he is completely NAKED and pressed up against the window, showing his little body to the neighbor girls as well as to the whole world! I have no clue how long he had been in the nude- boy what a shock those poor girls must have had! Obviously he's too young to understand why he shouldn't wave his little manhood to the world, but my goodness it sure was a shock! 

He's such a cute little stinker!  


Rose cracks me up here because she looks so uncomfortable, but I thought this face really captured Henry's precious mischief making abilities :)

Henry Shenanigans part 4

This segment will be referred to as the Mess Maker Mayhem edition! 

I don't think I really understood what was coming my way once Henry became more mobile and busy. I feel like every time I turn around I find a new huge mess. Somehow Henry is really good at being stealthy, silent, and quick in making these grand clean up projects for mom. It's like I gave birth to a ninja! Let me show you a little bit of what I mean.

If we go in the kitchen, you best believe we have to touch and move every. single. shoe. :) Luckily I caught this one before it got too out of hand, but this is something Henry does at least four times a day I'm pretty sure. 

And then we have Henry helping me with the food in the pantry. I had just finished putting away all of the groceries and then 30 seconds later....  He was doing this on a different day and a glass jar of jelly broke. Therefore, we now have baby gates blocking our kitchen. :)

Lastly we have Henry expressing his desire to help mom put away his clothes. And by help I mean take out every single piece of clothing that was nicely folded in his baskets. :) But how can I get mad when I see this precious face?!

Lest I sound like I am complaining, I really am enjoying this stage of Henry's development! He is so much fun and always keeps me on my toes. Even though I feel like I spend most of my day cleaning up after this little hooligan, I don't think I'd rather have it any other way. I love being a mama and I love seeing Henry learn and grow. 

Keep the good times comin! I wonder what he'll do next. :)
