Easter weekend

I seem to have gone on an unintentional hiatus. Sometimes life seems to interupt the all-important posting of pictures to the internet.

SA's grandparents came for Easter weekend, and much fun was had by all.

SA is definitely enjoying playing "catch" - we toss/roll the ball back and forth quite a bit recently. It looks like he's going to be a righty - Grandpa helps with a little pitching practice:

A little quiet time for reading with Grandma:

And some time out on the town:

Since all the action, we've had a little time to play at the park. Seriously, he goes for anything that rolls now - balls, strollers, tricycles.

"Can't put on PJs now, Mom - I'm finding toys!"

At the Park

Now that the weather has turned into spring, proper, we're spending a lot of time at the park down the block. It's crowded, but SA usually enjoys the activity.

One evening last week, he found a cart at the park which had a place to ride, but also had a handle on the back he could use to push around. He loved it enough that I got on Amazon to find something similar:
His new Mickey firetruck was a big hit - he was trying to play on it before I could get it out of the box. And he spent a good half hour zooming around the park, including some time pushing around another boy a little older than he is.

Glorious spring arrived in Chicago last week! Ever since, SA has been trying to make his escape - whenever a door is opened, he makes a beeline for it.

Other news items, such as they are:

  • SA's eighth tooth made its appearance today - I'm hoping we'll get a break for a while after this one.
  • Lots of climbing and crawling and exploring every corner of the house.
  • After 3 weeks of the sniffles, and a cough that became not so mild, we took SA into the doctor last week. So he's on antibiotics for the third time, and feeling much better.
  • We go to a "Wiggleworms" class every Monday - a singing "class" for 6-12 month-olds run by the Chicago School of Folk Music (rigid curriculum of the classics, naturally.) My little guy is usually the highest energy baby there - I'm constantly chasing him around the room. This week he was more social than usual; he crawled up to the other 3 babies and batted at them or their rattles, and he actually crawled into the lap of one of the other women there briefly.

SA pops out to wish his aunt a happy birthday!
