Pondering life's deepest thoughts
Our little streaker
Ian likes watching Daddy mow the lawn and will often stand by the window buzzing his lips while he hears the motor sound. Daddy gave Ian a special treat and carried him during part of the backyard mow. Ian was in heaven!
Ian has consistently been saying "poop" right before he dirties his diaper. So, we thought, why not introduce the potty chair, even though it is a little early?
So far, Ian is mostly fascinated with being able to get off (and sometimes on) it by himself, even though he hasn't used it as a potty yet.
Watch the above video to see one of Ian's most random, recent discoveries/interests!
Ian has wanted to take a book to bed the past few nights. We like watching on our video baby monitor as he pages through the book a little before laying down beside it.
We went to a fun play date at Brooke's house with Zane, Brooke, and Caleb.
Ian is showing more and more that he has strong opinions about some things ... "No more pictures, Momma!"
We take time most days for a splash in the pool. Ian will often stay in the pool for 45 minutes or more, filling and empty cups and buckets. He comes out looking like a wrinkly prune!
Painting with pudding was a highlight this week.
Ian had fun squishing the pudding,
putting it on his body,
spreading it all over the tray,
and eating it!
Here's a video of him playing with the pudding.
Friends Mike and Kati and their sweet boy, Caleb, babysat Ian so Matt and Kim could go to an Astros game. Ian had a great time! So did Momma and Daddy!
A generous parent had donated some amazing tickets to Concordia.
We enjoyed the game, and it was exciting ... even though the Reds beat the Astros in the end.
The fireworks afterward were a particular highlight!
Lately, Ian has been fascinated with phones.
He'll carry one around and constantly say, "Hello" or "bye-bye."
A silly face ...
He's also discovered that there's JUST enough room for him to walk behind the couch in our living room,
even though he often bonks his head on the wall while walking.
We've been having fun watching our garden grow. Ian likes helping to water and pick, although he doesn't quite realize that vegetables need to grow to a certain size before you pick them!
Ian has a new fascination with opening and closing doors, even though he can't open them yet.
He doesn't seem to mind being all closed in to the laundry room.
Ian enjoys TRYING to eat from a spoon.
