This morning was so nice! Jakob slept for 8 and a half hours, and woke up in such a good, giggly mood! I got him dressed up in a cute pair of overalls from his cousin Robyn but they are still too big on him so I changed him into a cute onesie (it says “I pulled an all-nighter”) and a pair of shorts.
At lunchtime we went on a playdate with my friend Jessica who is in from Toronto with her daughter. I can’t believe her daughter will be 1 year old next month. It was surreal to walk along the streets, pushing our kids in strollers. It feels like yesterday that we were in grade 6 and pretending to be superstars.
Later in the afternoon I brought Jakob over to my aunt Fran’s house for a birthday party for my aunt Mimi’s foster child. Yannick came over after work and was able to spend some bonding time with Jakob. He even got to take him swimming for a little while.
I don’t know if there was something in the water, but when we brought Jakob in and tried putting him in his car seat for a nap, he got into SUCH a good mood! He was laughing and giggly and amusing himself completely by kicking around and squirming in his seat until he’d slide to the bottom. He wasn’t strapped in because I wanted him to nap and he was right at my feet…don’t write me emails tell me I’m being reckless with him. He was being so silly and kept making the cutest faces…here it looks like he’s trying to get away from me!
Here are Jakob and Mommy at 12 weeks (and 1 day) old.
I wouldn’t have believed it, but he’s grown up so much, even since the last few days! All of a sudden he seems much more solid, and playful…with a real spirit. I can begin to see the little boy he will grow up into.
When we got home I fed him and Yannick got to give him a bath. They both had a good time splashing in the water, then I put Jakob into bed and left Yannick with the monitor so I could go take a shower. I just came out…and Yannick is asleep on the couch with the monitor! Great babysitter! I’m going to follow his example and get into bed too…
