Two Emperpor's in the West?

Oh man, I must have laughed about this for an entire day... even in my sleep.

My sister, Clara, sent me the following picture with the caption reading, "Zac found an Asian Constantine".

It's almost his spitting image, ha-ha!

Where Ever I Go, You Go

Happy 1st birthday to our sweet baby boy!

We had such great hope that Constantine would dive into the beautiful and yummy chocolate cupcake that we put in front of him. Instead, we had to coerce him into touching the mud ball and once he did he winced and whined that his hands were dirty. He then went on to fuss in between me forcing him to touch the cake and me having to feed him some bites. It was, by far, the most unclimatic moment of my life. I know, it's not always all about me.

I can't believe it took me 35 years to meet you. You were well worth wait!!
Constantine, we love you so very much!!!

The Great Escape

Let me first preface this by saying that we keep Constantine in a gated area to keep him safe from all the perils of the kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, etc. Lately he has figured out how to get by one of the gates so naturally I created some sort of barrier to discourage him. Discourage him it did not...

Soon after he pillaged a village and ate a throw pillow.

Stuck... Again...

...and twice in one day...

I admit, I feel guily that I grab the camera first and THEN help him.
