3 Things: The Memorial Day Weekend Edition

1. We had a party! There was food. There was drink. There were friends. There were children running about hopped up on sugar. Good times were had by all.
A friend of ours brought this piece of art. Here's the kicker: he doesn't even have kids. Ry said it reminded him of this classic internet rant. Ding ding!

We played bean bags.

F was suspiciously happy. He sat and played with toys or was happily passed from (female) friend to friend. It makes me happy to see him content with someone other than me.

I got to hold a wee tiny bebe. He's 5 weeks old. Isn't he precious? I heard T in the other room ask Ry, "Did mommy get another baby?"

2. I got to spend a whole morning with this here boy.
This morning Ry was a bit, erm, under the weather after last night's party. T and I took off to Sesame Place and left Ry and F to their own devices. We had terrific fun. I forget what a fun and interesting kid he is when he's not acting out to try and get my attention. We've decided to split the boys up on a more regular basis.

Because Ry got to spend the morning with this beautiful boy. He had a nap, he ate some lunch, he even took a few ounces of breastmilk from a sippy cup (yeah!). And then this afternoon, my beautiful baby boy cut his very first tooth. I was like "Holy crap, what is that?" You may or may not remember that T didn't have teeth until he was a year old. F is 4 days shy of 7 months.

3. I realized what a ridiculous summer we have planned. It looks a little something like this:

June - Ry is gone for a weekend for his college buddy's bachelor party, then he's in DC for a week, then we're going to Niagra Falls for 5 days.

July - My 3 week intensive class starts on the 12th. Ry's mother and sister will be here watching the boys for the entire time (yeah!)

August - The boys and I are going to New Mexico for a week to visit my mom, aunt and grandmother. Then, we are all going to IL for the aforementioned college buddy's wedding. The week we get home, the boys start at daycare and the week following that, I start nursing school.

Right, so I'm going to blink and it'll be fall. At least it won't be boring.

I can't get over how different the boys are from each other! Genetics is weird.

Genetics is weird. The weirder thing for me is how many people tell me the boys look just alike or that F looks just like me. I don't know if it's the coloring or if people are telling me what they think I want to hear, but I don't think that the boys look at all alike, nor do I think F looks like me.

Becky said...

Agreed. T totally looks like you (well, he looks like your baby photos). I don't know who F looks like - definitely not you. Maybe he looks like Ryan's baby photos?
