Things are moving and shaking here…pardon the pun…or my gagging. If you know me at all, you already are aware of my distaste for the jello product or its related siblings (pudding, etc.) However, due to my m-i-l feeding L jello and him liking it, I figured I would buy some and J could feed it to him. See how smart I am? However, it hasn’t worked out that way. So Auntie Al came by today to visit and got to see L and I jump off the jello ledge together. I was actually shockingly ok feeding it until it happened….L put his chupi back in his mouth and jello squeezed back through the holes in his chupi. Sick. I almost gagged but I didn’t. Mostly bc I had company ( thank you Auntie Al). We also gave Floyd L’s swing…sad face…but we are excited for Floyd to use it and love it as much as we did. In return, L got a KU sippy cup from Auntie Al. She’s the best. Rock Chalk. I know it hurt her to buy it.
In other news, we went to Gymboree on Monday and drove up to see 4 fire trucks and 2 EMS trucks in my parking spot. How rude. I surveyed the situation using my expertise as a police officer’s daughter and fire fighter’s sister….I know you are impressed….and decided that the FF’s were not really scurrying around so I took that as a not so dangerous situation. So L and I headed for Gymboree. Mind you, the pumper truck was in front of the Gym door, again rude, so we had to hike around…hey, this class is 59 bucks a month….we aren’t missing it. Things were safe once we got inside. The building 2 doors down from them was the one on fire. See, I knew it was safe. 🙂 So after the hull-a-ba-loo, here are some bubble pics…
Lucas has also learned the word no more and more this week. I do not want to succumb to having to show the drill holes or wounds in my entertainment console…so L is learning a life lesson, mainly bc I am too stubborn to give in. My house already looks like a jungle gym, can’t I have one stinking picture? I already know the answer, I’m just whining. The next few pics of just funny..mainly bc L loves to crawl and sit, crawl and sit, and is getting quite good at maintaining the balance thing. So he crawled in this pic and then sat down. So my theory was either those Pampers are waaay more cushy than even I thought OR he didn’t seem to care that he was sitting on a block the size of an oreo. (Did you enjoy my food reference? Me too.) Either way, it was cute.
Other pics are of him sweeping…oh yeah…you read that right. Now if I can spray Pledge on his socks and knees..I am so golden. I need to google if Pledge is toxic for babies. 🙂 J was sweeping and then left the broom out (yes, I am lucky my hubby loves to clean) so L picked up where he left off. So funny.
Oh our other big news was that L walked. No not on water… behind his walker….pulled himself up and took off. J and I both watched him with mouths agape. Seriously, stop the growing train. I want to get off. Or hand me the duct tape so I can tape his legs together or something. Geez. Of course there are no pics of that due to the mouths agape, feet frozen thing. Sorry. Off to Grandma’s to see Paco and be monkeys together for our Martinez Halloween. Yeah! Wish us luck. Hopefully L won’t be stiff as a board.
