Simon is now army-crawling. As my mom says, the next year and a half or so is going to be crazy, especially since we live in a multilevel house (5 levels in the house itself--yikes! how many gates do we need?!).
Simon loves and is motivated by the prospect of getting wrappers and, as I discovered when we were relaxing outside today, he also has a fondness for leaves, twigs, grass, etc. Typical boy?
Also, I tried to sell my sister in law and professional photographer, Heather, on this accessory for baby portraits.
I don't think she has fully envisioned the potential here. Come on people. They put feathers in hair, why not twigs? (You can pay me for my idea later, Heather).
Now I'm off to iron and watch a movie while awaiting my husband's triumphal return home from a mission reunion (his first attempt at going led him to a Kansas mission reunion rather than London South, we'll see how his second attempt went) and from picking up his brother from the airport. I stayed home to dutifully feed Simon and put him to bed (it's hard to go out at night when you have a breastfeeding baby who starts his bedtime routine around 7 p.m.).
Being a stay at home mom means...well... that you mostly stay at home. Funny how that works.
