Dinner with Daddy

Kids with grandmothers

Watering plants

Daddy time

Visit with Grammy and Poppops

Juni's dental cleaning

She was very good at keeping her mouth open for the cleaning. We learned to brush teeth twice a day--after breakfast and before bed--and also to floss at night.

On Tuesday Joey met the woman who will take care of him starting in July--when Joey is 5 months old. We visited her daycare and it went really well and they got along great. As soon as we got there she asked if she could hold him and she held him the entire time we were there for about a half hour. He was happy and so was she. I really like how calm and grounded she seems, despite the little kids running around her. I felt more relaxed as soon as we said hello. She keeps her home clean and organized, and she has clearly defined areas in her home for sleeping, playing, and eating. She has a schedule which I get the feeling she is good at being consistent about. She was able to still interact with the other children while holding Joey by talking with them and suggesting they kiss his feet. So Joey's toes got a few kisses. I met a 9 month old boy and his mom (who is a nurse) who said he started going there at 3 months old. I met a father who has had his children there over a span of the last 6 years. The families seem very happy with the daycare. It was all good vibes.

He's been sucking his thumb more. Tonight he soothed himself to sleep by sucking his thumb. Then later when I checked on him he had one leg out of the swaddle. That's his new trick. He also did that the previous two nights. It might be time to switch him over to the sleep sack instead of the swaddle blankets. He has been sleepng with his arms out of the swaddle for a while now.

Gran Gran and Joey

At Stinson Beach on Mother's Day

Mother's Day photo shoot









Mother's Day

My best mom's day so far. Stinson beach.

One arm swaddle

Joey rolled over today!!! He pushed himself onto his back from his belly during tummy time with Gran Gran. So that reminded me that it will soon be time to wean from the swaddle. Tonight we are doing well with one arm out of the swaddle. It is a way to get him ready for sleeping with his arms free, one at a time.
