What’s been happening? We’ve been slow on putting things up – mostly because we’ve repeatedly forgotten to add photos to the computer!
Earlier this month, Evan, Tara, and Madison came to meet Basil. Basil is Madison’s only cousin, and she is the first (of two) that he’s met. We really enjoyed seeing them together and hanging out with Evan and Tara again. Thank you so much for taking the trip up to Chicago.
We look forward to seeing them in Mom and Dad’s new house at Christmas.
On the 20th was Elizabeth’s birthday. I had tried arranging some babysitting, but she wasn’t yet comfortable with that, so we ended up taking Basil with us to Nuevo Leon in Pilsen. Later in the week we had Claire and Mark over for dinner and practiced leaving Basil with someone just long enough to get some dessert at the Florian Café. Elizabeth had a vanilla milkshake and mine was Moose Tracks. I had lots of fun, and Elizabeth pretended to, as well! When we returned, Basil was indeed still intact, as was the house, and our dear friends had not only cared for our son but washed the dishes, too! Thanks, friends.
In Basil News, he has begun training for a new Guinness Record – hand eating / mouth stuffing.
He has also been increasing standing time and tummy time along with expected cuteness increases.
He’s also greatly increased his vocalizing and we think he has begun giggling occasionally with his frequent smiles. Unfortunately, you’ll just have to imagine the sound with these pictures.
Over and out!
