It's most definitely bedtime for Mama and Daddy, but Cubby is singing about how great his feet are.

Bub was in his room when Chris called from the hotel so I brought him a phone and ran downstairs to pick up the other line. When they were done talking I chimed in to tell him to hang up the phone. Chris and I were chatting as Bub came downstairs.
Did you hang up the phone?
Yup, the lady on the phone with Daddy told me to press O-F-F so I did.

Cubby was not smitten with his first taste of solids.
I know I said I was going to do baby led weaning but I'm just like every other mother--desperately offering solids in hopes of buying some extra sleep!
He also had a bit of banana and was less revolted but still wasn't digging the texture. Nothing can compare to delicious baby toes.

Nope, make that, "when you get an extra cat, your husband is 3,000 miles away and your 4 year old tells you that you are exhausting because he isn't allowed cake right before bed."
True story! We're up one cat, down one parent and I'm on my last bottle of wine.
In related news, Liam is damn lucky he is absolutely adorable when he's asleep.
24 more hours, that's all I need to survive!
Thank you to Grammy, Papa, Grandma Cookie, and Uncle Jim for helping me this week.

The sun and breezes followed us all around the garden grounds.
My partner/my love and my newest joy/my baby.
I'm holding the smell of grass and blossoms in my skin and my hair
to ward off the any rain that comes our way.

Our little stay cation found us at the lake in Ashland. Cubby dipped his toes and Bub and Chris splashed around like rambunctious prehistoric sea creatures. The ice cream truck was also involved. It was a perfect little moment in time.
Mind you, after this bliss, there was much crying, whining, melting down and snarling. But we take our pockets of bliss where we find them and count ourselves lucky to have had them at all.

Me: I wonder why that bee likes your dinosaur so much?
Bub: Maybe he's a Paleontologist?
That's my smart, funny boy!!

Sometimes my battles with Liam are so confounding, I feel like I'm dealing with a teenager. And sometimes he can push all of my buttons just right and I think I'm dealing with an adult.
And tonight he pulled his blue tee shirt up over his head and said,
I'm Mr. Mailbox Head! Feed me a letter!
And we both giggled and I put pretend mail in his mouth and everything was right in the world.
The champ's unofficial weigh in is 20.4 pounds and 26.5 inches long.
To paint a picture : the kid is bursting out of his infant bath seat. I bought one that was good up through 9 months when he could be sitting up in the tub. Nope, I'm going to need to find a new bath time solution because he's tapping out at 4 months.
He did roll over yesterday and if I prop him the right way, he can sit up for a few seconds.
