Monkeying Around

When Grandma/Mom was here, she made the boys two sets of very cute outfits. One monkeys and one trains. My plan was for us to make them together, but I just didn't have the energy. There's one set left to make - pirates! I have all the pattern pieces set out and the fabric, so I'm hoping to cut it out this week and hopefully finish them before DT outgrows it!

Thanks Grandma!

8 weeks old

DT is 8 weeks old today and a cutie pie. I feel like I need to do all the things we did with LT, so I took impressions of his foot today and then a little photo shoot...

Diaper series

I bought this outfit at the Silicon Valley "Green Fair" - it's an organic free trade outfit. It even has matching socks. I was saving it for maybe his 100 day picture, but it turns out this might be one of the only times he wears it. It's a bit snug on his thunder thighs!

To remind everyone...
LT at 8 weeks old

To any cloth diaper enthusiasts, LT was wearing a small Fuzzi Bunz pocket diaper in his pictures and DT is wearing a small Thirsties pocket AIO diaper (can add additional stuffing or use it as is).

Highchair Baby

We finally thought of getting the highchair out of the garage to keep DT entertained while cooking & eating. I think he likes it!

I even took a video on my camera, but I suffered from "forgot that video has to be shot horizontally" syndrome, so you will have to turn your head ...

One embarassing thing ... we apparently put the high chair away without cleaning it. I had to give it a thorough clean as there was an astonishing amount of food still in it and on it! Ack!

Bend it Like Beckham

DT has been to his first professional sports game! We went to see the SJ Earthquakes play the LA Galaxy (including Beckham) Saturday night.

Lessons learned:
1. Just because Oakland is usually only 45 min - 1 hour from SJ, 1-1/2 hours will not be enough time to get to a soccer game featuring David Beckham.
2. 40,000 people will also be driving up from San Jose at the same time.
3. Soccer games are very short. Missing the first half and then needing to wait in line for food only leaves 30 minutes of game time (there are no time outs to slow it down).
4. If you miss the ice cream man going by with only 4 minutes left, you will have to drive to the landmark Fentons Creamery to appease your 3 year old. Ok, and his mom.

This is the smallest size...

It was still fun and we plan to go to another game. Probably the next time the Galaxy is in time... only we plan to go up quite early and tailgate! It turns out our neighbors were also went to the game and they left even a little later than us. It was their highest attendance ever, so no one was really expecting the crowd/traffic.

6 week checkup

DT had his 6 week checkup with Dr. LT.

He had his heart beat listened to.

His blood pressure checked.

He did have to get a shot...

then he was proclaimed healthy by the doctor!

Poor DT had a poospolsion at Cost Plus and Mommy forgot to bring an extra outfit ...
He had to suffer through the indignity of riding home in his skivies and his shoe socks.

One he got out of that carseat and on to the changing table, he felt much better!

He just loves that changing table!

As did LT ... here he is at almost exactly the same age (one day younger).

Do they look the same? Different? What do you think?

Nice shirt, isn't it?
