Belize, Day Two: Beach Babies

Day Two: Relax! And drive. It turns out our Maya Beach house is about 25 minutes up the road from the nearest town of any size, Placencia. Somehow, Logan made three round trips into Placencia on Sunday, to shop for food, pick up lunch, and then pick up dinner. You have to drive through the…

Belize! Oh what a travel day it was.

Day One: We present ourselves at the airport at 5:40 for our 6:25 flight, only to learn that Southwest will not accept our luggage for travel because we’re checking in less than an hour before departure. Cue rush to the car rental facility, where we rented a car and drove to Houston. We arrived in…

10(.5) Months!

Babaloo. You have me in awe. 10.5 months and you are just an explosion of movement. Every day you stand on your own, for longer and longer stretches and more and more often. You sit and spin around on your butt, using your legs to trace wide circles. You squat, unsupported, playing. Today, you bear-crawled…

Dinner

Dudes and lady-dudes, Babaloo DESTROYED this whole tray of food last night. I was shocked—I’d really thought Dada was over-serving her when he set the tray on the table. We’ve offered chicken a number of times, but this was the first time that she really ate a good bit of it, shredding and gnawing with…

8 months!

Eating at Month 8!

I’m sort of putting together a post about flying with Babaloo, who’s now been on two airplane trips! That will have to come another day, though, since right now I’d like to babble a little more about food. Feeding is continuing to go well. Two months (and a smidge) into experimentation with solids, and we…

Babaloo goes Fancy-loo

Last Saturday was our eleventh anniversary! Because, somehow, over the years, we have become old. We had a lovely weekend. Dinner with friends on Saturday, a baby playdate Sunday, and then we took babaloo out for a fancy meal at Launderette. We hadn’t done a nice meal out with baby since good friends of ours came into…
