The blog has been pretty quiet lately! I went back to work a month ago and left the blogging to Josh while he was home with Naomi. Josh decided he was about quality not quantity so posted one very funny 'Mister Mom' blog and then left everyone wanting more! Today, Josh went back to work so we're going to do our best to keep up with the blog now that Naomi has two working parents. Here's an update of Naomi has been up to over the past month:
Visit with Savta and Papa:
Here are a few pictures from a fun weekend with Savta and Papa.
Baby's best friend:
Naomi LOVES dogs and unlike Wenley, Beasley doesn't mind when Naomi pulls her fur!
Naomi will start child care at Clif "Base Camp" on Monday. We took her there a couple of times this week so she (or more honestly, WE) could get used to the environment before we leave her for the entire day. She was super excited about all the new toys and especially liked chewing on the foam floor mat. Here's a photo of her 'transitioning' to Base Camp.
Naomi rolled from her front onto her back on 6/21. We haven't been able to capture this on video yet but will post an update once we do!
Jenny went back to work on Monday, and I am back on leave for a few weeks. I am Mister Mom!
Naomi and I had a pretty fun week together. Wenley loved it - I run her around more than Actual Mom, I think. It started out to be a pretty normal week. I read her books like Tickle Monster, which comes with monster gloves.
Then Naomi spit up over my shoulder in a way that looked too much like bird poop for my tastes.
So I decided to spike her milk with some Mountain Dew and see what would happen. And things got a little crazy!
I had Naomi help me with the laundry. I told her she can wear a blue monster shirt instead of a pink dress. Girls can be monsters, too!
Being Mr. Mom even made me look like I was lactating - Let Down!
I had Naomi help me with the grocery shopping...
I taught her the virtues of double fisting, and let her pass out in mama's sock drawer.
Then we went to the porch and waited for mom to drive home from work, pretending like it had just been a normal day. The Cat In The Hat would be proud.
All in all, a fun week together! And we are all still alive!
