Midweek Fun

Well, this work week was not nearly as crazy and stressful as last week but it was still pretty busy, so I am glad to be on my "Caleb days" now. Who knew that revising personnel policies could be so much work!?! I feel like I am an expert in FMLA leave, vacation days vs. personal days, etc. now.

Caleb had a great week at the babysitter. I think he really missed the interaction with her and her girls. I know they were excited to have him back over at their house for part of the week. Caleb and Miss Amy made his first piece of refrigerator art on Tuesday. It is an Easter Bunny made from his footprint and with the eyes and nose from his thumbprint. It is now proudly displayed right in the middle of the fridge.

It has been raining off and on this week so yesterday evening Caleb and I went on the back porch to check out the small puddles. He didn't have any socks on so I let him put his feet down in the water. I was explaining to him how water can let you make footprints on the concrete (don't you know our neighbors love these random one-way conversations with an infant!). I got out the camera to snap a picture of his footprint without realizing I'd get my prints too. It's kinda hard to see but I thought it was neat.

He is still really enjoying his Bebe Pod chair. It is great to have him in the kitchen with me while I'm getting dinner ready or doing the dishes. However, he does get bored after awhile. His grip on toys isn't all that great yet so anything I give him quickly ends up on the floor, frustrating him even more. I was digging through his toy chest and found a toy with a suction cup on the bottom that's meant for a high chair tray. It rotates around like a ferris wheel and makes noise. I stuck it on the center of the chair and as you can see, Caleb had a different idea about what to do with the toy.

Aaron is working late (again) tonight and Caleb is in bed so I am going to have some "me" time and read a silly romance novel. Yeah! And Caleb and I are meeting Heidi at In the Raw tomorrow to celebrate our birthdays. It's been a LONG time since I've had sushi and I am definitely looking forward to it.
