On the Shoulders of Giants

Happy Father's Day to my sweet husband! I would say he's the greatest dad I know, but I wouldn't want to insult the other wonderful dads that I know in my life. Otherwise I would totally say it. ;)

It is so incredible to see the love he has for this little guy. He was very unsure about becoming a father, but whether it's because he's overcompensating for his fears or just because it comes perfectly naturally for him, he is an amazing dad. He loves this little guy with his whole heart, and misses him every moment they're apart. He would do anything to ensure a bright future for Levi J, and wants him to have every opportunity and every happiness. I'm so very blessed to have him as my partner.

I don't think my dad reads this blog, but just in case, happy Father's Day to my dad too! Love him mucho!

This morning Levi J and I made homemade gak! It totally reminded me of Nickelodeon and the 1990s. I was so happy with the result! It was super easy, cheap, easy to clean up, and he had a blast! We've tried homemade play-do and he never has been very interested in playing with it. But the slimy gak was a hit.

Here's the recipe if you're interested:

Because I'm Happy

Today is the first time in MONTHS that I actually feel like myself! I think 17 weeks is the magic morning-sickness number. And it's not actually that I don't feel sick at all--I still feel a little queasy and tired--but I do feel like I've emerged from the bell jar.

And I have a cute new haircut to boot!

Go Fish

Levi J went to his first baseball game on Saturday. He absolutely loved it! I thought he would be into it for about an hour and then would need entertaining, but he was interested the entire game! And he woke up the next morning chatting on and on about it. "Where my baseball hat go? Go Fish! Run, mommy, run, win the game!" The Marlins gained a new fan, even though they lost.

We all had fun in fact! Our tickets were free (woo hoo!) and the stadium was air-conditioned, so we were all very content. And who knows, maybe we have a future baseball player on our hands!
