Jump up, jump up and get down

I’m feeling “bullet-y” today…

  • Curly so far loves applesauce, sweet potato, avocado and Earth’s Best brand rice cereal (not Nabisco). He gets jealous if we are ever eating without him. And when there’s nothing more left in his bowl, Operation Distract and Remove Baby From High Chair must commence or he gets upset.
  • Starting next week, the daycare situation is: my mom Mon-Wed, me working from home and watching him on Thursdays, and Nutella’s mom on Fridays. Hoping this will work out for a while.
  • My mom slept over last night which allowed Nutella and I to have “date night.” Nutella’s company is having a large client dinner next week (which she is in charge of), and in return, the fancy restaurant gave Nutella a free tasting dinner for her and a companion. So that’s what we did last night- 2 different wines each, salads, entrees, and dessert in a romantic wine cellar for the cost of a nice tip. I had a huge grin on my face the whole time.
  • We bought Curly a jumper (the kind you jump in, not the kind you wear). I will mention that the doorway we’re using it on is twice an average doorway size, so we don’t have to worry about him ever hitting the sides. So far he has no idea how to use it, but it’s only been a day. He likes chewing on it and just hanging around. We think he doesn’t quite know how to use his legs yet and hopefully this will help. I have to say, it looks awfully fun to me. Too bad about the 25 pound weight limit. Nutella commented that there are likely ones available in adult sizes, but you’d have to shop at a VERY different sort of store…
  • Since our moms get to see Curly a lot, our fathers inevitably end up feeling less involved. So we planned a bowling outing on Sunday for everyone. Hoping everyone will have a good time. Wishing you all a good weekend!

  1. Your dinner out sounds heavenly!!

  2. wishinghopingpraying

    What a nice night out! I am living vicariously through your meal 🙂 I hope Curly likes his jumper, PBS loves hers.

  3. Score on the free delish dinner out! Sounds awesome. Sounds like Curly is well on his way to enjoying food as much as his moms do. Yay!
    Those jumping things are awesome. Can’t wait to see video from when he figures it out…

  4. the date night sounds lovely! we are trying to get several of those in before i deliver!

    i think we are going to need to see a pic of Curly in his new jumper! 😉

  5. Ooh date night! Bowling sounds fun too.

  6. the whole ‘adult jumper’ made me laugh out loud. I hope they don’t sell those at BRU!

    Date night sounds fun, and I’m sure spending time with your sweetie was even better.

    Oh, and I agree with S., We need to see Curly in his new jumper. I think I need a visual.

  7. Awww bowling is an awesome idea! Way to involve grandpas! As for the jumper, we don’t have a big enough doorway but our boys got a jumperoo, which takes up alot of floor space but they love all the bells and whistles that go off whenever they bounce it!

  8. I love the idea of the fancy dinner for the cost of tip. Also, I had a jumper as a baby, and there are about six thousand pictures of me drooling delighted in that thing. I bet Curly will love it.

  9. How great that you two got to have a fancy schmancy dinner out and for almost free!

    I let a friend of mine borrow the hand me down jumper that I got recently an their boy LOVES it. It took him a few days to get the hang of it.

    Hope you had a great weekend!
