Today Nick had a playdate with his friend Emily. They were so cute - they played nicely together for three hours! They shared snacks and toys and generally had fun :)

Return to McClumpha!

Today we returned to McClumpha Park with Nick's friends. We played at the splash park again and then Nick and his BFF had some quality time in the sandbox. As you can see, Nick thought the sand might make a delicious snack. We're not sure why! We've decided to postpone installing a sandbox at home until Nick knows sand is not meant to go in his mouth.

Nick's First Mango Pop!

Nick needed popsicles for daycare, so we bought some molds and I made him red white and blue pops - pureed blueberries, yogurt and pureed raspberries layered in the molds. They all went to daycare, so Jeff and I didn't get to see him eat any. This weekend I made mango pops - pureed mango, coconut milk and a touch of raw organic honey - and today we gave him one. He did great! Hardly even dripped, never dropped it or set it down, ate it right up!

Nick's First Splash Park Visit!

Nick and his BFF Brann made their first visit to the McClumpha splash park today. They were both timid at first but warmed up a little as time went by - Brann eventually was brazen enough to walk right under the spray! Nick went so far as to stick a foot in. We are definitely going back!
