to bring you this *almost live* post from daddy and bebe to mommy, who is in NYC this weekend visiting aunt marge!
dear mommy- here's what we did today!
as you were leaving, we started to give new josh a bath in the sink- just like we did for bebe when she was a little, tiny baby!
hey lady! it looks like new josh is taking a nap.
"new josh sleeps with the fishes. litrally."
"you got a problem with that?"
"i didn't think so."
well, after that, we got dressed, packed up our bag, grabbed the stroller, and hit the road.
pretty excited to head downtown.
bebe is developing a thing for statues.
"ahhhhh! it's a statue!!!!!!"
bebe. don't move. there's an eagle, right. over. your. shoulder.
"holy crap. is it still there? what's it doing?"
"oh, this is just part of the statue daddy! nothing to worry about!"
"huh. it might have just moved..."
"hey! what's that alllll the way over there?!?"
hey! wait up! sure, you can just take off and run at the first sign of trouble! i have this bag, and the stroller...
"i told you not to get mixed up with a kid like me. i'm a loner. a rebel."
dude, you're two! and i didn't just 'get mixed up' with you. i'm your dad.
"i'm sorry- your point was...?"
as we walked along the esplanade, we saw boats and ducks
stopped to listen to the waves hit the rocks as the bigger of the boats went by
...and took off running at the drop of a hat for little or no reason at all. bebe!
"do you have to take pictures of me while i snack?"
we picked flowers
drank lots of water (bebe's got a little cold)
saw a ton of sailboats
and towards the end of our walk we came to this huge, awesome tree, whose branches hung all the way to the ground!
we made up a game where we each took turns running out, and then running back in from a different spot.
it was a great way to end our walk on the esplanade.
on the way home we stopped by the UFC convention so we could practice our arm bars and guillotines...
when we got home it was nap time. after nap time, it was awake time:
having some juice and watching a little "steppon street."
we miss you mommy! we hope you're having a fun time in NYC (where fun time was invented)!
