My parents go to the same restaurant almost every Saturday afternoon. Today they took Ivan with them so that Sister B and I could get some shopping done. He was the belle of the ball, metaphorically writing. All the patrons loved him and he ate an entire thing of bananas & had some water. So cute & independent!
Ivan loves all his toys that make noises and allow him to figure things out. While my mom & I were organizing some things around the house, she set Ivan up in his crib* with one of his toys! He had such a fun time!
He really enjoyed sitting up like a big boy!
*Sister B said this was the first photo she's seen of Ivan in his crib, so it's worth noting that he's now sleeping (when he decides to sleep) in our (Sister B's & my) old crib from the '80s.
Now I know why moms strip their kids down to diapers at feeding time. This kid has a pair of orangey sock after the first time I fed him carrots, so the second time I made sure it was warm enough in the house and took his clothes.
He's actually not a huge fan of carrots, but mixed with a little applesauce, they get in there.
I have no photo of Ivan from today. Today we packed up our entire house and moved home to M town. C has a good job (funny enough, for the same company he worked for before we left M town) and we'll be staying with my parents for a few months.
Our house in KC is empty and for sale and I've officially resigned from my job (I will miss the people so much!). Our lives in M town are set to begin. We always planned to end up here and are now here a little sooner than we thought we'd be. We have plans to rent for awhile and then to build on some family land out in the country. I will be sure to keep you all updated.
That said, we are (very) close to family here and are going to renew tons of relationships from before our move. Such an exciting time for the R family!
