We had an absolutely gorgeous day today! It may have rained some early morning, but from about 8-3pm it was beautiful, dry, and even extremely sunny for long periods of time! I had my mom’s group this AM and it was our last hurrah at Corinne’s place as her babe’s due in 3 weeks, so we had a potluck after our chat, for which I made fresh (yummy!) tortillas and brought along cheese, meat, and salsa to fill them with. Hurrah for tasty foods….strangely, most people brought sweets, which makes me wonder if as a group we seem to have a sweet tooth…so I had a great fill of tasty treats with lunch. Or perhaps I should say I had some real food on the side of the treats? At any rate, I think one of the older kids gave Spencer some sweet stuff (probably to keep him from yelling…I don’t blame them) and he wouldn’t have any of that ‘real’ food after that. Ah well. One day out of …. most … days isn’t terrible.
After most of the moms left the few of us decided to sit outside to enjoy the sun and warm wind while the kids played in the yard….it was amazing! I’m so excited for the warm weather! Spencer, for the first time that he can remember, played on the lawn. He didn’t know what to do about the soil/grass/leaves….I think they poked his hands some because he kept pulling his hands off the ground and holding them up as if they were dirty or soiled (which I’ve noticed he’s started doing once he notices he has peanut butter or jam or something else sticky on them). For the longest time he wouldn’t move from his spot because he wasn’t willing to put his hands down. But then there was chalk the other kids were using on the sidewalk, and if that won’t get him moving, nothing will (but Mom, chalk goes in my mouth! Why are you taking it away?!)
And tonight we had nachos with homemade guacamole and salsa! Super yum! Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of it, so you won’t be enjoying that tomorrow. However, here is a picture from Tuesday’s meal!
