Baby baby baby
As I'm sure you're all tired of listening to me complain, I thought I'd share some Adrian stories--because that's really why you're all here, right?
The bad news: I don't know if it's teeth or a virus but baby's got the runs and a nasty diaper rash to boot. It hasn't dampened his spirits much, although he did tell me that he was skeerd (scared) today when I laid him down for a diaper change. It was fairly pitiful.
The good news: Baby's got manners! We recently invested in a booster seat so he could sit at the big table with MamaanDada. Previously at the end of a meal he would announce "all done", and if you didn't get there fast enough, he'd start dropping food on the floor. Now that he's moved up in the world, we told him the proper way to get out was to say "All done, excuse me please" Which has been shortened to "all done. 'scuse me". Next step: getting him to keep his napkin on his lap. He knows that the purpose of the napkin is to "catch crummies" but frankly, he doesn't care.
He's also gotten really in to going to the grocery store. So much so that he asked to go 4 times last week. I figured twice a week was enough, so we went to the pet store, fabric store, and the book store. At the book store we shared tea and a cookie. I have plans to do that again.
Adrian also has a best friend, who we shall call D. The two met in music class, and we go over to D's house about once a week. D's mom and I get along really well, so it's fun for everybody. Adrian keeps asking to go back there, but if he's got a virus I want to hold off for a few more days. D's mom, A is pregnant and I don't want to get her sick. The boys are so stinking cute together--they chase each other, play hide and seek, and share snacks. If they grow up together I know already that they are going to get into tons of mischief.
Lately when Adrian was getting into things he shouldn't I'd ask him if he was looking for trouble. He now tells me he's "looking for troubles"
It's hard to be mad for long when they're so darn cute.
