It's a bird, it's a plane it's . . .


Superbaby is trying to crawl, but so far his superpowers are a bit limited in terms of mobility:

Superbaby is always rather serious when he plays with his toys:

rollin' around

Avery is getting more mobile. He rolled over for the first time on Friday, and now he is a rolling-around machine! We sat him on the floor to play, left the room for a moment, and when we came back, he was on his tummy, wiggling his butt around and trying to crawl! He REALLY wants to move around on his own. Once he does, we'll have to keep a constant eye on him!

At 4th U this morning, we put him in the nursery for the first time (he has always sat with us during the service, but he has a tendency to get fussy during "Silent Meditation" so we thought maybe it was time for him to be in the nursery). The woman who takes care of the babies (he was the only one there today) said that he was "so good!" and "so happy!" and the only time he cried was when she sneezed and it startled him! He really is good and happy, and we have more and more fun with him every day. We also think he keeps getting cuter!

Playdate with Oliver

Avery and I went to Oliver's house to play today! We know his parents from our Lamaze group, and since they live nearby, we decided to get together so the boys could play. Avery loved all of Oliver's fun toys, and they were pretty cute together:

duckie pajamas

These are totally our new favorite pjs!

"He's got the Whole World in his Hands."

This is our favorite "Lazy Mom" book (it reads aloud and even makes the animal noises for you!):

Going out on the town to see a matinee of "Spring Awakening". A rare (and much appreciated) treat for us; Avery got to spend the afternoon playing with his Aunt Melanie:

Visiting with Aunt Melanie

Carolyn's sister Melanie is in NYC for the weekend. She got to enjoy some fun time with Avery her first day here. We enjoyed going out to Dinosaur BBQ:

Getting tickles from Melanie:

The only thing that makes Avery laugh more than getting tickled is watching Ruby! He thinks she's hilarious:

Avery and "Baby Avery"

Avery is enjoying a relaxing Friday evening at home. He enjoyed a delicious dinner of organic lentils and rice with veggies, and organic cherries and applesauce. After changing into his pajamas, he has been playing with his toys. Here he is with "Baby Avery," wearing similar blue pjs:
