Pizza to Pork Pie

It’s a sad state of affairs when you have to put “Shower” on your to do list because you might forget to if it’s not there.

So glad I was able to get a welcome basket together for Fergie’s parents. I meant to do it last time but that pesky postpartum depression rendered me pretty useless. They eat fairly healthily so I’ve got fruit, water, Izzes, granola, homemade muffins, granola bars, almonds and a nice chocolate bar. They’re going to be in a hotel room for a week so just wanted to make it a bit more comfortable.

Also, why is it so hard to find plain, whole milk yogurt? I couldn’t find it at Stew Leonard’s or Target. That’s what I get for shopping somewhere besides my beloved Trader Joe’s!

Easter Day at my parents’ house included another basket (with maracas!), a 2 hour nap with me in bed after Nate’s barking woke her up (bonus nap for me!) and plenty of attention.

Easter morning…a couple of days late.

Nate decided to photobomb my picture of Gemma’s basket. Perhaps it was a hint that I should have made him a basket? Ok Nate, noted for next year.

Obviously the biggest hit of the basket was the loudest, the tambourine. She also loved the touch and feel farm book. She’s really into books these days, especially ones with textures.

It’s rainy today, but yesterday was gorgeous! It was my first outdoor stroller strides at Cummings Beach and it was SO much fun.

Our playgroup afterwards was on the beach. One of the benefits of living on the coast I suppose. It was Gemma’s first real taste of sand (quite literally) and she seemed to be a bit confused by it.

I cannot remember a time when she didn’t scream bloody murder as I strapped her into her car seat so yesterday I let her climb in it for 15 mins in the Trader Joe’s parking lot.

She still screamed when I buckled her in.

All Nate wanted to do was lick the empty yogurt container, and then Gemma stole it. Poor Nate can’t do anything in peace these days

I took a trampoline class at Chelsea Piers in Stamford organized by the Fairfield County Mom’s blog and it was SO much fun!

TMI - most of us had to pee within 30 seconds of jumping. Thanks a lot babies for ravaging our bodies inside and out!

Fergie is away on a business trip so I had to get creative when it came to getting a tired Gemma, Nate, 3 bags and a stroller up to the apartment tonight after an afternoon at my parents’ house.

Luckily Gemma thought it was hilarious and Nate was too confused to do anything but sit there.

While Fergie & Gemma were at swimming on Saturday, I took a baby sign language class coordinated by my yoga teacher.

The teacher advised us to start with the sign for MORE, and then move on to EAT and MILK once she’s mastered MORE. I was excited to come home and start using the sign with her, even though it could be a month or two before she signs back.

We’ve been using MORE for food, tickles and kisses. Sometimes after I sign at her she claps back at me. Maybe she thinks I’ve just decided to start clapping in a weird way?

Look who was brave enough to crawl through the corn cob for the first time today!
