  • 2008-08-10: Here are a bunch of pictures. I've got nothing. For any pictures you want to print, just right click on them and select "save target as".

    You don't want to back Niklas into a corner.

    Occasionally, Niklas has this impact on me as well.

    Who wants to rock?

    For some reason, I had to get guacamole all over the camera to get this picture. Totally worth it.

    Seriously, how could I take time to wash my hands when this was going on?

    I just want to point out that I was making guacamole, not shovelling it into my face with my hands. Also, look how cute!

    Niklas practices some yoga. You do stuff like that in yoga, right?

    Niklas apparently has places to be.

    "Wooo! Penguin backpack!"

    And he's off to his next adventure.

    Even if you're not wearing pants, it's important for your hair to look good.

    Niklas is too cool to look at the camera even after I carried him up 187 steps. Thanks, pal.

    Here's Niklas waiting to ambush any cookies or milk that happen by.

    After weeks of waiting, Niklas's hair is once again long enough for crazy shampoo styling.

    Football Wizard conjures a Steelers' victory.

    Despite appearances to the contrary, Football Wizard is pleased.

    Here's Niklas with the rage-inhibiting ball.

    I probably wouldn't have done much better with this.

    With a smile like that, it must be snack time.

    Here's Niklas pretending to be either Harry Potter or maybe this guy.

    2008-08-25: If you would prefer to have Niklas caption these pictures, just ignore what I've written and shout out a random Sesame Street character when you look at each one. For any pictures you want to print, just right click on them and select "save target as".

    I call this "Niklas On Stairs With Sunglasses". I'm witty.

    Niklas is too concerned with how to get out of the thirty foot hole we're in to pose for the camera.

    Niklas whips out the trouble face after dragging his stroller into the kitchen for some reason.

    Hee hee hee. "Poo."

    Luckily for Grandma's purse, Niklas was soon distracted by a kitty.

    Despite what I may have seen at 6:15 the past few days, the opposite of "asleep" is not a picture of Niklas.

    I'd tell you what Niklas is laughing about here, but I really have no idea. Cute, though.

    Niklas prepares to take his cleaning obsession to the next level.

    His eyes suitably protected, Niklas is ready for a tickle fight.

    I call this "Prelude to Success".


    2008-08-30: Here are some pictures of Niklas modeling the latest in playground equipment. For any pictures you want to print, just right click on them and select "save target as".

    Here, Niklas demonstrates why it is urgent that we go to the playground.

    Much better. I know his face doesn't look like he thinks it's much better, but you can trust me on this one.

    This is Niklas's debut on the big boy swing.

    Niklas has tamed and ridden the great frog.

    Boy, if you like pictures of Niklas climbing up a slide, this is your lucky day.

    Climb, climb, climb. Riveting!

    Look! Climbing!

    Sliding action will commence any second now.


    Well, that was fun.

    Here, Niklas meets with less success than his previous trip to the top of the slide.

    That method does work on giant feet, though.

    Here's Niklas spinning this thing that tells you to stop dumping stuff in the ocean. Niklas supports this view.

    Niklas can bring the rock. Sometimes literally, but not here.

    Quoth the Niklas, "spin, spin, spin!"

    As an important man, Niklas has many calls to make. Unfortunately, some jerk is hogging the phone.

    Kitties! Please to note that Niklas finds kitties fascinating.

    After a busy day of busting stuff up, Niklas likes to relax with a good book.

    On an unrelated note, here are some neat sand sculptures we saw at Horseshoe Bay. Niklas wasn't that interested in them as Andrya and I had him sufficiently restrained to keep him from Godzillaing up the place.
