funny boy

lil talker


i made a huge mistake by machine washing a doll my Nana made for me decades ago. the doll was perfect for Pasquale - all cloth with a sweet round head and big hand-painted eyes. it looked a lot like him and he was enthralled by it - particularly the eyes. alas, the thin material ripped during the washing and when i removed it from the machine i found the stuffing exploded out of head! so disappointing! i am going to ask the talented alison to fix it up for us. while searching online for photos of any similar dolls (i could not find any), i noticed a striking similarity between Kewpie dolls and Pasquale in the shape of his head, eyes, cheeks and chin.....

new sounds

the first "baaa" sounds

the shoe fiasco

tummy time for Pasquale

Our friend Jeff works at Nike and gave P these high top sneakers.
I have never put shoes on P before.
It was really difficult - basically it did not work.
Samantha found this hilarious!
...sweet boy...

sweet P

Pasquale took a long bath today
and got really wrinkly toes
really, really wrinkly toes
he has beautiful eyes
and loves milk

here he is in one of his noni's dresses
and bath time again

dress up!

Pasquale is a sport about me dressing him up.
Here's his Kentucky Fried Chicken sleeveless tank Mario got for him in Thailand (weird!)

Here's another Thailand special - the bib that says "CANDY"
the shorts with suspenders were 25 cents at a thrift store in Homosassa, FLA
Cutie in overalls from another thrift store and flip flops from his friend, Gunnar
