I was very bad about documenting photographically this week, my apologies...
First of all, I missed noting a trip to the pediatrician last week. It was a scheduled appointment for a shot, but I got to ask a million questions and get a weigh in. We learned:
- Noah weighs 15.9 lbs. Up one pound from last month.
- He should learn to walk without shoes and then we can introduce them and essentially re-teach him how to walk. Awesome.
- I got the ok to give him hummus. This was very exciting for me, apparently not so much for Noah since I think the flavors were a bit of a shock! We'll try again soon.
- We were given the directive to pack in as much fruit (prunes specifically if you catch my drift), water, and lack of binding items as possible. As a result I am pretty sure I am force feeding Noah every 25 seconds!
Goose - Our little Noah is a crazy, silly, wild, goose. This likely is no surprise based on my past few posts but I swear each day he gets braver and is venturing past any appropriate baby boundaries regularly.
|This morning we played under the table. Pokey wood and metal beams, definitely kid friendly, right?|
Daddy's Day - We celebrated a very special Father's Day on Sunday! While I didn't whisk Scott away to Napa for a weekend of bliss, I tried to make it about him and make sure he got everything he wanted. Scott's day started with a rare treat...bacon and eggs. I can't stand cooking bacon in my house because it smells all.day.long. BUT, it is a favorite for Scott so alight came the griddle. Scott got presents (the DAD pictures I framed for him and will refresh each June with our ever growing little boy):
Next up, we took a family stroll to a local lunch spot and enjoyed a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc to celebrate the day (there are perks to this weaning thing). Then, I delivered on Scott's #1 Father's Day request...uninterrupted US Open watching. I might have poked my nose in once or twice but for the most part, Dad got to simply relax and enjoy his Sunday afternoon. By the way, I completely regretted the wine when Noah refused to nap on this lazy Sunday because I wanted to, desperately!
|Dad got a basketball hoop for Father's Day. The real deal gets delivered on Friday so we had to give him a "teaser" present.|
|Matching chins. Love these two.|
|Noah got this for Scott so he can teach him all about the Giants.|
As you can tell, it was a nice little Sunday spent with the two men I love more than anything. Scott could absolutely win any "Dad of the Year" contest and he deserves so much more than one day of recognition. As I told him, I can only hope that Noah grows up to be the man/husband/dad that he is.
Holy Guacamole - In an effort to jam more fruit into Noah I picked up some mesh bags to put various yummies in. I took a recommendation to put some avocado in one day, and while it proved to be a GIANT mess, Noah sure did love his baby guacamole.
|Sorry for the "action" shot, he was in the Johnny Jumper and holding still wasn't an option.|
This week we also enjoyed a visit from the Yared's, a date night, I had Girl's Night Out, and a fun night with Kristina and Renee at the fire pit. Like I said, I was bad a documenting this week. I will do my best to improve, starting now...
