Peas and a baby

Ohhhhhhhhh, Sonia. She has been showing signs of wanting to wield utensils all by herself (her first attempt was with her birthday cake), so today I let her attempt to feed herself (with lots of help from me!) during breakfast and dinner. While she was eating her peas at dinner, she got a bit frustrated and crabby (probably because she only napped for 1/2 hour today!) and tossed her spoon full of peas to the floor.... right into the air vent. ARGH!!!!!

You might think we're idiots for putting her high chair right next to an air vent, but I swear that's the best place in the kitchen for it.

Aaaaand, now you see why we keep that vent closed!

Anyway, on to the "baby" part of the post. Earlier this week, Sonia and I were able to trek up north to visit my friend, Jennifer, and her brand-new baby son, Kyle. Kyle and his older sister, Caitlin (aka Kiki), have their own blog, too: All things Kiki and Kyle!

Kyle snoozed all through our lunch at Panera, but he woke up when we got back home. He was looking so stylin' in his Ralph Lauren polo shirt!

Kyle looks just like his daddy, John!

I enjoyed snuggling with li'l Kyle, but I am still not ready to think about getting pregnant for a third time!

Sonia kept trying to get up the stairs.... She is a stair-addict! What a cuckoo bird.

Congratulations, Jennifer, John, and Caitlin on the new addition to your family! Kyle is an adorable little sweetie-pie.

Hahahaha! I love that she is looking down at her handywork in the first picture. That's an interesting spoon. I like the concept. Is it working?

Val, that spoon is hilariously awesome-- it bends, so if you put the spoon head at a 90 degree angle from the long part, it's supposed to be easier for the babies to get the food in their mouths. I don't know if it really works or not yet because Sonia usually can't stop giggling when we try to use it (not that you can tell from those pictures-- poor kid)!
