On Monday, we took David to his first Giant’s game. Some friends of ours, Patrick and Emily, sang the national anthem with their school chorus. We were fortunate that we got to see them sing, and we got to watch (at least part of) a real Giant’s game. Before the game we ate dinner outside, then took David to the Coca Cola slide and the children’s baseball field. He really liked it!
And here’s a cute picture of David and Ciaran from Little Hands, just because. It’s hard to believe that there are only 2 more weeks of school left for this year!
Last week, David and I visited family in Georgia. We had a wonderful time, and David really enjoyed all of the attention. He got to sing with his cousins, go for walks in the woods, ride in a horse drawn carriage, throw rocks in the lake, fish, drive a tractor, play with bubbles, and playing with Grandpa Don’s trains. We were really lucky that we got to see David’s cousins, Aunts, and Uncles (except for Uncle Jesse, unfortunately.) Thank you very much to everyone who generously helped us on this adventure!
… but last night, David split his lip open. He jumped from a ledge onto the cement sidewalk and landed face first. Luckily, the pediatric urgent care was still open, so we were able to go there instead of to the ER. He seems to be doing better this morning, but he still has a pretty big gash in his lip. It’s a good thing that little kids heal quickly!
Happy Belated Valentine’s Day! Here’s a picture of our little valentine, who mostly appreciated the candy this year.
We’ve been keeping ourselves busy, and I’m happy to say that we survived 3 days without Chris while he was out of town! (Although it sure is nice to have him back.) It was so nice to hang out with friends while Chris was gone – and thank you to everyone who helped me! Here are some pictures from our recent adventures.

Today, David and I were lucky enough to go on a tour of our local fire station. Before we started the tour, I asked David if he had any questions for the fire fighters. He replied, “Can I drive the truck?” While they didn’t let David drive the truck, he did get to sit in it.
Although unrelated, here are a few recent pictures of story time and play time:
This week marked a big milestone for David: he moved up to the Super Beast class at the Little Gym. What’s so exciting about this class is that it’s the first class that’s not really a “mommy and me” class. I was there the whole time, but I mostly sat against the wall. David did a great job of following directions and participating.
