Glamour Shots - Big Wonkey and I Strike a Pose in Our New T-Shirts

You may have noticed in my previous post that I'm wearing an awesome new t-shirt! I got it from my friend Jill at Cheeky Monkey Love. Besides t-shirts, Jill sells adorable hand crafted sock monkeys and sock monkey beverage cozies. Please check out her site sometime. The message on my shirt is DON'T Shock the Monkey. Do you remember Peter Gabriel's song, Shock the Monkey? Jill has several different monkey related messages on her shirts.

As soon as Big Wonkey was born, he started begging me for a shirt of his own. I selected the "Will You Be My Uncle?" t-shirt from the Cheeky Monkey Love site for the Wonkster. For fun, I googled the phrase I'll Be A Monkey's Uncle to investigate its origin.

The reason I'm calling this post Glamour Shots is because I utilized my very professional photo studio that I've demonstrated for you in the past. The pictures taken inside the studio are high quality. I just have to get Laura to assemble and disassemble it for me.

Big Wonkey decided to raid my closet and borrow some of my accessories. The Uncle Sam hat and Sally Jesse Raphael glasses were a nice addition to his t-shirt. This kid is already jackin' my style.

John Deere... That's how I roll.

Wow, Big Monkey! I don't know how Laura can tell you apart from Big Wonkey. She did an awesome job making you a twin brother. I wish I had a twin. I would make him go do all the boring stuff like hanging out at yarn stores.

Love, Noah

Hi Noah!

Thank you! I think your mom would do a great job making you a twin. He could go to yarn stores and be your stunt double so you never have to bathe again...LOL!

Super tune and video Peter Gabriel's "Shock the Monkey" is. I remember watching it for the first time and understanding that this music video thing was not just adverts for the musicians but was, in fact a new art form. in the case of this fantastic piece, I don't really understand it, but I think it is probably genius!

It is a great video! I don't really understand it either - kind of disturbing. As long as the actual monkey wasn't shocked, I'm OK with it though.
