What We Have Been Up To

This is my last week on maternity leave. I am sad. I can't believe I am going to have to leave the Peanut. The good thing is that he'll stay with someone that loves him as much as I do, his daddy. I'm sure the two boys will have lots of fun together. The Peanut will have a much easier time parting than I will - as long as he gets fed when he wants it and his diaper changed when he needs it.

Over Easter weekend we went to the OC to visit my family. The Peanut was great on the flight. He ate, slept, sucked on his pacifier, and looked around. And of course he charmed a few people. A lady sitting behind us commented to her travel mate that the Peanut was a cute baby. :) The Peanut got lots of love from the family and friends. One of my aunties nicknamed him the blender since he loves to get bounced and swayed.

The husband's brother met up with us in the OC and we all flew back together. During his visit, we went to the new California Academy of Sciences at Golden Gate Park. It was awesome. We didn't get to see a lot because we got there late and it was crowded, but the Peanut loved the fish. However, after about 30 minutes of fish he got a little over stimulated and needed to take a nap. But we had so much fun showing him the fish at the aquarium that today we took him to the pet store to check out more fish. But the store fish weren't as cool.

The Peanut is now 3 months. He's able to mostly support his head, but he doesn't have much control with it and he still often bangs his head against our shoulder or head. So we still try to support it. The Peanut has also started holding on to things, like a rattle. He doesn't yet reach for anything, but I expect that is a couple weeks away. We've also started teaching the Peanut some sign language. We are keeping it simple with words like mommy, daddy, baby, nurse, milk, happy, love. We are using signs from a baby sign language book we got, but I don't think they are appropriate American Sign Language signs (at least not all of them). Hopefully the three languages we are using won't be too much for the Peanut.

And now, for more exciting stuff...PICTURES!!!

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective.

A lot of times it's very hard to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you've done
a great job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox.
Excellent Blog!

I use a lee scoop and drop it in through a funnel. We have been taught from the time of being children how we should eat from the different major food groups. In a clear signal of the growing market for gluten-free foods, Chex Cereal announced recently that it has changed the ingredients in six of its eight products so that they no longer contain gluten. Combine 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast and salt in a large bowl.

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen
in Safari. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd post
to let you know. The design and style look great though!
Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Kudos

I leave a leave a response each time I like a post on a
website or I have something to contribute to the conversation.
Usually it's triggered by the passion communicated in the article I looked at. And on this article "What We Have Been Up To". I was excited enough to drop a commenta response ;-) I do have some questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it just me or does it look like like a few of the comments appear like they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting at additional sites, I'd like to follow you.
Would you list every one of your communal pages like
your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
