so i realize lars is about to do some serious greatness. he's been sleeping like a log the past few days. 2 hr naps, 2x a day?!?!?! all he wants to do is stand. stand. stand. soooo, here we gooooooo....
he's so funny - he cant eat in public. he is so distracted by the dogs, the kids, the other moms, the toys, the noise, the stuff - he will eat a few pieces of cheese and then start wiggling, squirming. we get home, and he downs some ground turkey, avacado, raisins, applesause, you name it. and hits the hay. ah well. i shouldnt complain - at least he's letting me feed him again! ya!
yesterday was our first Music for Aardvarks class. it was rather overwhelming for the little baby, it was loud about 15 other little babies there. pretty fun. we just popped on the bus and were there in no time. home by 1pm, time for lunch and a loong nap! we were both pretty tired, but it was the first day. i know he liked it, he was totally mezmerized by the dude playing the guitar. cool.
i REALLY need to get a new carrier thou. he has outgrown the Bjorn, my shoulders are starting the hurt and well....did i mention he's outgrown it?!
other than that, not too much going on. im starting to think about what to do for this big old ONE YEAR BIRTHDAY that is fast approching. hum...he wont remember it....but you only turn ONE once. all i care about that he gets a little cake all to himself. other than that, um....whatever!
ah, what a looong week last week was. very busy, but not really, but not a lot of long naps and i was sick and exhasted and well, i guess i didnt do much other than blow my nose and go thru tissues like lars goes thru diapers.
lars is standing on his own now, so ...naturally, all he wants to do is stand. i mean, he falls eventually, but he is letting go and stays up for quiet a while, which is pretty cool! while im okay with this standing up thing most of the day, during bathtime i find it a little difficult and frustrating...he cannot stand well in the tub. so... its up and down and up and down. blah. up...down...up...down.
we had some friends over for lunch on friday - two babies also born in june. so insane that these kiddos will be one year old soon. i cant even stand it. hopefully we can do something fun in the city to celebrate all the june babies!
today i finally cut off lars' rat tail. he was mezmerzied by YO GABA GABA and i did a little snip snip while he was in the highchair. perfect! that mullet was driving me crazy. i know no one else cares...alas, i have to look at it all day. hopefully he never grows one out of fashion choice. oh man.
yesterday doug and i took lars to 'hamilton park' which is along the river, just a block away. it was a lovely day and doug walked lars all around the grass. lars doesnt seem to like grass much. i guess its pretty weird when you think about it....
should i try the apple cider vinegar cure? apparently it helps with sinus infections....which i have. i also have bloody noses aprx every 4th time i blow my nose. i cant NOT blow my nose!
i think im going to try it. i found a site that said you can put it in apple juice - im afraid of what this will taste like!
anyway, here are some cuties from easter!
off we go to my parents for easter weekend, im sitting here listening to the morning benders, hoping my blister will go away so i can wear my new vans, and hoping lars sleeps just for a few minutes more. ive put out all the junk that needs to go into bags, but just need to put the stuff into the bags. very happy that lars seems to need less junk these days. he will be a whopping 10 months old on sunday! fun.
lars and i both have colds. my throat was getting sore last night, i slept like crap and ....woke up feeling like crap. lars cried a few times in the night, but every time i went to check on him he was fast asleep. so i guess he was OK. but i heard heavy breathing.....and this morning he had a runny nose. he seems ok other than that, just wants to be held alot.
napping for almost an hour this morning which allows me to 1/take a shower 2/pack our toiletress 3/sit on the computer and wish i had something other than cold coffee to drink.
i dont like coffee when im sick. but dont have the energy to make tea (yes, yes, its just boiling water!) oh! wait. we have OJ.
happy easter everyone. easter for us is well, chocolate and bunnies and i love it.
