Short and sweet, But still a vacation!
We originally had plans for a longer trip somewhere else but dads job schedule was moved around. So went went to Santa Barbara. Neither of us have been. It was beautiful! And the weather was perf! We went to the Santa Barbara Zoo. It couldn't have been a more perfect day. Blake behaved so well. The 2-3 hour drive there was his long morning nap.
We walked around the whole zoo and were even able to feed the giraffes! I wish I could have one as a pet. Then a train ride where we were able to have some exclusive views of some of the animals.
The next day we did a lunch and little visit to the beach. Neither of us are huge fans of the beach but little Blake had to visit the ocean for the first time. All around it was just such a nice and enjoyable time. The three of us away from home not having to worry about cooking or cleaning and the dogs even though I missed them and felt so guilty boarding them. I am looking forward to hopefully many more family trips with my boys 💙
Zach and I made Blake a little Easter basket. Not that he will remember but it was fun and sweet. Blake really likes the animated tsum tsum short on Disney and plays with the little stuffed animals so it was a perfect Easter present to add to his collection.
Zach had to work that afternoon so we went to visit our Aunt Ginny and friends in Glendale. Had such a nice dinner. Good Easter. Just a bunny day and excuse to have good food since we are not religious.
What's new ?
Not much. Blake likes to scoot around on the carpet and roll on to back and stomach still. So just more practice till he crawls. He's using his hands more and pinching the crap out of me lately.
Food - LOVES it. I've been making him food and he loves it first couple days but mr picky apparently doesn't care for frozen fresh. So I occasionally buy the organic baby food packets and he eats the whole thing !!! I have a good eater here !
Still breast feeding several times a day but it might be bittersweetly coming to an end because those tiny teeth are sharp and rubbing me raw 😞
Coming up .. Think we are going to try a Gymboree class next week! Mom is going to attempt to have her hair cut with Blake present hope he behaves. Maybe try the movies early one morning.
Mom and dad might buy Blake a swing for the patio this weekend!
Until next week! 😘
Oh Blake's still pooping in the toilet in case you were wondering!
