Last post from California! We are looking forward to getting to Texas and making left turns at our own discretion next week! (In California, 99.9 percent of stoplight intersections are left turn with arrow only. Even the insignificant tiny neighborhood stoplights.)
Cody has been madly in love with his hands lately. He loves sucking on his fist and fingers and rubbing his hands all over his face and grabbing whatever’s in reach.
A minute before I took this picture, he had both fists under his chin, thumbs against his neck, and I thought it looked funny, like he was putting up his guard for a boxing match, but then he moved them and he looks like a cute baby with his hands up by his mouth. 🙂
We decided to celebrate our anniversary early this year, since it’s right after we get to Texas and we won’t have a babysitter yet. So we hired a babysitter and went out for a nice Italian dinner and gelato afterwards. 🙂
Earlier that day, we attended a birthday party for a one-year-old; the child of some Air Force friends. The party was aviation-themed, and the favors were a tube of bath tub fingerpaint soap, and these fun airplane whistles, which Caleb
reluctantly kindly agreed to demonstrate for you all. I told him I wouldn’t be able to describe how neat and fun they are, and how they look like adult pacifiers, hee hee.
