First, I've started letting Wyatt help in the kitchen. He thinks it's great fun and especially enjoys seasoning things or pouring flour into the mixer. I've taught him that this makes him my sous chef, which he says quite nicely.
We had a visit from our friends Tara and Jack a few weeks back and it was so fun. Tara was with
us when Wyatt was born, manning the camera to capture the pictures that I love so much and I was able to return the favor almost exactly a year later for her. So literally, we've known each other's kids their whole lives. Their trip was quick but we had a great time just hanging out, going out for lunch, taking the boys to the pool and catching a little retail therapy - just like the good ol' days pre-kids! Jack is one handsome and happy kiddo and I can't wait until we get to see them again.
Next up was the visit from my parents and grandma. It was so fun for Jeff & I to see Wyatt with them. It's times like this that make me wish we lived a little closer, though halfway across the country feels like next door compared to halfway around the world. We're so glad they came to visit and stayed for so freaking long. Just kidding! My mom kept saying they were coming for too long, but we never felt that way. Maybe she did? Anyway, highlights included a birthday party for Wyatt, lots of hanging out at the house with everyone (Great-Grandma proved to be an excellent partner for cutting wooden fruits and veggies), Wyatt's first bus ride (which was only a by-product of our actual outing, but no need to tell him that), a few trips to local parks and, of course, lots of photo ops.
Hey look! Four generations!
This is Wyatt participating in one of his favorite activities: looking (enunciated quite clearly as loo-king! loo-king!) at the photos just taken on a digital camera.
Lastly, this deserves a mention because I think it's cute. Jeff and Wyatt have matching shorts and have been known to wear them at the same time. Ahhh, I love my boys.
