Lance – man

After several posts featuring Ivy, I thought I’d give Lance his share of the limelight.


This photo really captures the boyhood in Lance right now – going at life full steam ahead with no reserves, no regrets and half the time with no clothes (too bad he doesn’t meet potty training head on). I am encouraged to report that he signed “potty” to me last night on his own thought – though it was more of an after thought – but I was excited for any step in the right direction.

As a Cahill he is already learning the value of money, though for now it’s more of a play thing -  handful of change keeps him entertained for an hour! He also puts great value on food, the making and especially the eating of it.


Like a man, Lance enjoys his food (if he decides the food is eatable – this time it was mac & cheese and therefore approved). He has also picked up a funny trait; if he only gets one of something yummy, he’ll eat it very slowly, nibble by nibble. It can take him five minutes to eat a goldfish cracker. But if there’s plenty then he gobbles them all down like a growing kid.


Time with Daddy is always fun, and often educational. Here they review a networking diagram and during reading time he’s learning that penguins are “Linux”.

I left the kids with Brian this morning and he took the opportunity to instruct Lance in the skills of manhood.

And so my little boy is growing up.

    too cute! If I gave Matthew pennies to play with, I think he’d try to eat them. What were y’all baking?
