Today was a fun day for Sammy. In the morning while Mommy sorted and packed things, he hung out with Granny and Grandad. They showed him the collection of buttons Granny has. Much time was spent talking about what color they were, what you could make with them if you put them in lines, etc. Apparently Sammy also enjoyed stuffing them down his shirt. What Granny and Grandad didn't realize was that he was wearing a onesie. So when Mommy went to change him after a GIANT stinky poo, she found out where the buttons had gone. 3 survived. One didn't. Here he is enjoying a breeze after vigorous cleaning and here are the buttons we safely returned to Granny.
A confession: I've been really bad at keeping track of what I've photographed and when. The time stamp on my camera is wrong and I can't find the manual to fix it. So I have to either write down or remember when a took a certain picture. I just can't get organized enough to upload every day. Despite being positive I'd taken a pic a day for the last 2 weeks, it would seem I haven't. And as our days have been good, but uneventful, I can't be sure what pic goes with what day now! So, I'm missing 2 days since the 16th of September and I can't promise you that I actually took said picture on said say. Which is why I've stopped posting dates.
Anyway, I'll try to be a bit more organized from now on.
This is Tessa's cupboard after a grocery delivery. She says she didn't realize how many sweets she'd ordered but I think this is a fair representation. Yes, there are SIX packages of cake, TEN packets of biscuits (cookies), a box of scones, and a bar of chocolate. What you can't see is on the counter another tupperware box of biscuits with 2 new packs in it, and another pack of scones. She gets a food delivery every two weeks and I can guarantee you all that will be left will be crumbs of digestives and rich tea biscuits. I don't understand why my in-laws aren't as big as houses. And I'm amazed I've only put on a few pounds since living here. So far....
Another rare shot of Mommy! Here we are in London. We've just offcially registerd Jacob with the American Embassy. He's got his birth abroad certificate and his US passport will arrive soon. Thanks to Aunty Robin for her help with all this!!
Today we went to World of Country Life in Exmouth. Of all the things Sammy could have been fascinated by (animals, bouncy castles, soft play areas, trikes, tractors), he found a big ol' puddle. He's such a cutie!
