The Busy Day
Cole has been trying to eat our food. Well, not literally, but his behavior is definitely pro-food. When we eat, he watches our food all the way up to our mouths and his arms get stiff and shake. Even his legs get in on the action—stretching out and quivering.
So, on doctor’s recommendation, Cole tried his first food today—rice cereal mixed with formula.
As the spoon first neared his mouth, his body tensed, shook.
His mouth popped open in excitement.
The baby spoon slid in with the sweet, delectable treat.
Of course, most of the cereal goo mostly slid right back out onto Cole’s bib, but the enjoyment of finally being included in this mysterious dining ritual was seen across his cheeks.
Then it was off to Touch-a-Truck where that is precisely what we did. We all had our favorites: Nick loved the black hawk helicopter; Genny liked trucks with loud horns and the bouncy dog ride, which made it seem like you were jumping around inside a dog’s belly; I was most interested in seeing the inside of the mobile police unit trailer (very cushy) and meeting the police dog. Cole, on the other hand, was not so pleased with the flocks of children honking and tooting the various noise implements in the vehicles.
After lunch at home we were off on one more adventure—going to Treeland to buy seeds and plants for our garden.
Genny is now passed out on the couch.
Cole is being changed by Dad.
And I am wondering, once again, what’s for dinner.
