Connor's First Tooth (Almost)!

Witnesses: Z and me
Date/Time: June 26, 2012
Where: In his highchair on the kitchen table

For months we have believed that Connor had been teething and maybe he had.  But today was the first time we felt physical proof of this mythical baby stage.  After a day of whining, clinging, and fussing, I felt the tip of a bottom front tooth making its way through 'Rad's gums.  Gummy smile, goodbye (I'll miss you).  Teefs, hello.

Connor's First Pool Day!

Who: Connor and a baby pool
Witnesses: Z, Blue, and Me
Date/Time: June 10, 2012
Where: Our backyard, WI

It hit 90 degrees that Sunday, so we inflated this little pool and filled it with hose water.  Very, very cold hose water.  Poor 'Rad.  But after a while he warmed up to it as it cooled him off and he started playing around, crawling around, and horsing around in it.  I wished we could suit up and join him, but it was just a baby pool after all.  This was his introduction course before hitting the big pool at Grandma's house.  

When pool time was up, Blue took it over.  I don't know what it is about that dog and wanting to drink the water he lays in.  Gross.

Connor's First "Adult Food" Dinner!

Witnesses: Z, Blue, and Me (Blue was also part of the clean-up crew)
Date/Time: June 4, 2012 at 6:40 p.m.
Where: Our kitchen table, WI

I saved some of the Chicken Parmesan I made last night for Connor's first "big kid" meal.  He seemed to enjoy it!  He jumped right into mushing the spaghetti around, putting fistfuls of it into his mouth, and letting it roll down his front and onto the kitchen table for Blue to enjoy afterwards.  To top it off: a few cut blueberries.  I think we're off to a good start!
