Vacation 2010

Sometimes I feel quite certain there's a jertain in the curtain.



 We didn't get a lot of good photos, but here's a few to get you started.  BrendaJason!

How I Spent My Summer Vacation

There will be more, of course, but I think this pretty much sums it up.

Note that when Adam watches this video, he points to the windowsill at the back and says, "ipod!"

Gramma Gramps!

Yet another fabulous weekend with Adam's favorite internet personalities.  When he woke up from his nap and I told him Grandma and Gramps were here, he said, "Grandma Gramps computer?"  He was very excited to find them in the living room.



On Saturday we went to the playground at the Somerville Public Library.  Adam had fun outside with his grandparents while Mike and I had fun inside with the graphic novels.





Then we went for lunch at Joe Sent Me on Mass Ave.  We parked in Davis Square, where Adam got to feed the meter with his new favorite thing: quarters!


We had a great weekend.  I'm so glad that Adam has such fun with his Grandma and Gramps.  They get along swimmingly.

Our Day Rundown

Adam won't let you sing to him anymore at bedtime; instead, we tell him about what he did during the day.  But since he sacked out today the instant we walked in the door, he didn't get his naptime rundown.  So here's what Daddy should tell him at bedtime.

First, when we got up, we played with our new chalkboard and whiteboard with magnetic letters.  We drew all kinds of pictures with chalk, and Adam got a little marker on his face.  Then we had cereal for breakfast, and Adam talked to Nana on the computer.  And then he talked to Grandma and Gramps on the computer, too, but just for a few minutes.

Then we watched a little Elmo and Abby.  We saw a new Sesame Street segment called Murray's Little Lamb.  Murray (a monster) and his pet lamb go to school--a different school each time--karate school, drum school, baseball school.  Adam has latched onto the lamb; all day he's been saying, "Little lamb," and I sing Mary Had a Little Lamb to him.

Then we went downtown!  We met up with Sheila at her office, where we ate some cherry tomatoes in the lobby.


Then we were going to go on the swan boats in the Public Garden, but the line was all over the place, so instead we walked over and bought some hot dogs from a vending cart for our lunch.


Sheila was nice enough to share her iced tea with Adam, which he loved a LOT. 

Then we went on the carousel next to the frog pond.  Adam was barely tolerant of the carousel, though once I got into the habit of bobbing up and down with his horse, he dealt with it pretty patiently.


Then we got an ice cream from the truck that sits near the park.  Sheila was nice enough to share some of hers with Adam, probably because he knows her name and spent a little time today asking her nicely to kick her legs while we sat on a park bench.


Then we got in the car and headed home.  Adam dozed off at the end of our block and went straight to bed, though he started chattering pretty quickly after that.

So that's our morning!  Grandma and Gramps will be here soon, and he'll have an awesome afternoon, too.  He does live the sweet life.

Water Time

We've been spending a lot of time at the pond lately.  Here's Adam eating his supper waiting for the Alastair Moock concert to start.


Here's Mike and Adam wading in.  Daddy's not as obsessed with the pond as Adam and I are, but Adam's enthusiasm is hard to resist.


Adam, shoveling and drying off.

Activities

I'm pretty sure Nana took this picture, so I have no idea why he's taking peek-a-boo so seriously.



Adam video chatting with Grandma and Gramps--at his firm insistence.  He begged and begged, and kept talking about them all day after this.


Adam is also all about writing and drawing lately.  He often sees a string of letters and says "A, D, A, M, Adam!"  Or he'll see numbers and say "Nine, eight, two!"  He knows most of his letters on sight, though, if you point them out to him individually.  Numbers he's still fuzzy on, but colors are coming up fast.


In short, Adam is turning into a little boy! No more baby here.
