The Kid Should See This

If only Jude were a little older....
Oh well. This site is awesome, nonetheless. I'll just hope it's still around in a year or so when he IS ready. Until then, I'll just have to pretend I'm doing "research."

Green ball? That was soooo 17 months

Me: Jude, let's go upstairs to take a bath.
Jude: puhple cah? (purple car)
Me: yup. Grab purple car. Do you want to bring green ball, too?
Jude: no (duh, Mama. Why would I want that?)

It's kind of hard to smile when your mouth is full of graham crackers.

After the day/evening we had, hugs for Yllus (Sully's arch-nemesis) were the perfect way to end the night.

The Daily Jude 8/21/11

We had dinner at our friends',the Dezentje's, and met two tiny, adorable babies (not the Dezentje's!). Jude was fascinated by them. So sweet!

Sand, cups, and balls, galore. We had a great time at the Rainbow Families potluck today!

The Daily Jude 8/14/11

We went to the splash pad again, this time with friends Miller and Sully (of birthday cake extravaganza fame). All three boys were beside themselves with excitement. Me? I was beside myself with excitement from the morning's perfect weather, which we got to enjoy eating breakfast outside. Summer!

When you have a favorite snack cup, you have to transfer the snacks from the mediocre one to the good one. It's just that good.

Jude's dinner was so farmsharelicious today that he couldn't even wait until he was at the table. Seriously, people. That little white melon (a "mini muskateer").... Ohmuhgawd.

The Daily Jude 8/10/11

While at the park this evening Jude wandered over to the basketball court to see if the guys playing pickup needed another man. He even came prepared with his own ball and Lakers shirt.

The Daily Jude 8/9/11

Jude just accepted a shipment of balls.(Not really. They're his usual gang, but the box his diapers came in today adds a whole new dimension).

Jude was practicing going up and down the stairs by himself tonight. Check him out in action!

The Daily Jude 8/7/11

Jude just couldn't get enough water play this weekend. While I was at book club this afternoon Lindsay took him to the indoor/outdoor pool in Maple Grove. He had a blast, for sure, but she couldn't have the camera poolside. No problem. She reports that Jude found the lockers just as entertaining as the pool!

The Daily Jude 8/6/11

The stars finally aligned and we were able to make it to the splash pad in St. Louis Park with a few friends. Jude had so much fun running around and he completely exhausted himself. We're checking out real estate in the area.

The Daily Jude 8/5/11

When we got home from Target this evening, Jude had his red car and his green ball. A difficult balancing act, to be sure. If only there were something he could put all of his toys in so he could carry them around....

Ah ha! That did it!

But wait! Did you guys know that you can actually fit THREE balls AND the little red car in the bag?!?!? Looks like we have a new bag that needs to follow us everywhere we go...

(We had negotiate with Jude to sleep with ONLY his green ball. We then needed to make sure the bag was sitting outside his door so he wouldn't obsess over it all night. Jeesh. Babies.)

We're practicing being patient while food is cooking. I happen to know that it's always easier to wait for food with a little cheese and crackers.

The Daily Jude 8/1/11 Part 2

Just in case you thought I was exaggerating about Green Ball, Lindsay-style, EVIDENCE.

Also, he's not wearing any pajamas because he very specifically asked not to. Who am I to argue?

The Daily Jude 8/1/11

Jude and his new best friend, Green Ball.

Oh! Guess which kid slept for 2.5 hours today at school WITHOUT A PACIFIER! yay!!!
