Some fun videos

It seems that almost every day brings us an exciting (and often funny) new experience.  I have been trying to capture a few of these with my point-and-shoot camera.  The quality might not be great, but I'll treasure them anyway.

First up.  David's first experimentation with the "spit flubber".  Since he really hasn't been doing this lately (and this was recorded just a little over a week ago), this video is a treasure.

Next, for your viewing pleasure, is a clip of Cory reading to David.  It was so cute, I had to share.  Do all babies get this excited about a book?

Finally.  Cory taped it while waiting for me to get home from work the other day.  He asked me to mute his narration, but I ignored him since the effect just wouldn't be the same.

I'm not sure if other people find these as riveting as I do, but I have a hunch...

What's new this week

Let's see.... since I'm unable to organize my thoughts this morning due to sleep deprivation, I will just ramble on a bit about this week's happenings.

First of all, to explain the sleep deprivation, David decided to wake up at 2:30ish and 5:30ish every night this week, except for one. And last night he decided to add 12:15ish to the mix. An almost-six-month-old that "sleeps" like a newborn. At six weeks he slept so much better than this. He seems to be regressing, hope this is just a phase... If not, we'll still keep him 'cause he is just so darn cute. Not just cute, but charming, too. After spending a lovely morning with him, I have already forgiven him for last night.

New foods this week: green beans and carrots. I don't have a pic of the carrot experience, but these pics pretty much sum up his true feelings about green beans.

Don't think these will be a fast favorite. We'll keep trying, though.

Went to the State Fair on Wednesday. David enjoyed the sights and sounds of the barns and the midway. Cory enjoyed being a proud papa with his little papoose. I enjoyed an elephant ear, a pork chop, grilled 'taters, and a rib-eye sandwich (shared with Cory of course). We all waited in line to see things like a giant cheese sculpture (oooh, ahhh). Only at the fair! It was a fun day, so exciting to watch David see things for the first time. He might not remember all this, but I sure will.

Speaking of the fair, I met a lot of my soul sisters in the Dairy Barn. I also decided I need to invent one of these for humans. Hands free, fully automatic. Looks tremendously efficient. Wish I could manage this type of production.

Yesterday, we took David up to visit with friends in Cicero. It was great to see how sociable and adaptable our little guy is. He was a little wary at first, but quickly warmed up to everyone and shared lots of smiles and laughs. What a good-natured fellow.

I saved the best of the week's developments for last. Out of the blue on Monday morning, David started blowing raspberries (or "spit flubbers", as Grammy Patt has so aptly dubbed them). And blowing them with gusto. He pretty much hasn't stopped. So funny. He really puts his whole heart and soul into the process. Haaaaaahh-ppffuuuuooooo!

Happy Sunday to everyone!

What a weekend...

We're recovering this morning from what was a fabulous weekend.

A spontaneous visit from the Murdock clan started it off right on Saturday morning. We collectively ate an entire pan of lemon chicken from the Rice Cooker and did lots and lots of visiting and catching up. Got some great pics, especially this one.

Almost can't believe how big these four are getting to be! David's cousins enjoyed him immensely, and the rest of us sure had a ball watching them get better acquianted. Good times.

Cory, David and I headed out Saturday evening to Babies-R-Us to get a highchair, a much-anticipated and momentous occasion. Up until now, we had been using the Bumbo seat on top of the dining room table for feeding, not exactly teaching proper table manners and habits. Since we'll be adding new foods in the coming weeks, we decided we should have the right equipment. He's eating oatmeal and rice cereal now. Green beans coming soon! Mmmmm, good.

He loved the highchair. All the world's a stage when you're five months old, right?

On a selfish note, I spent some time crafting yesterday. Yes, crafting. Playing with paints, paper, and printing out some pictures that might actually become scrapbook pages one day. I even read a new book I'd been looking forward to, and it's not about childcare or breastfeeding or the like. When they tell you everything changes when you have a baby, they aren't kidding. But I wouldn't have it any other way.

Here's to many more weekends just like this ones...
