Idaho – Day 2

Jace has discovered that his favorite rattle has ears – and that those ears fit into his mouth!  There has been a lot of chewing on toys lately….104_3508 104_3509 104_3510

I had a 30 minute meeting today and planned to take Jace with me.  However, he decided it was nap time about 15 minutes before I had to leave.  He napped and played with Stephanie while I did my quick meeting.

The weather here has been a little rainy, but this afternoon it cleared up and was actually sunny!  Cold, but sunny!  We went for a walk.  Note to Adam: Can I borrow your coat for our trip to San Francisco?  No matter how hard I try, I can’t zip my coat around me and Jace at the same time!

I think Jace really enjoyed the walk.  He likes looking around while we’re outside.  We went out for gelato after the walk, played a little, had bathtime, and then Jace went to bed.  AND SLEPT FOR 2.5 HOURS STRAIGHT!  Soooo exciting!  Last night I think the longest stretch of sleep was about 45 minutes.  I’m hoping tonight we hit a lot of 90 minute marks!

So – the highlight of my day today?  Jace laughed!  He was sitting in my lap and I was talking to him and smiling at him and making faces.  And he laughed!  I think it’s the first time I’ve heard him laugh that wasn’t related to something physical – tickling him, playing with his feet, washing his neck during bath time, taking arms out of sleeves, etc.  It was so cute!  He was very happy and smiley this afternoon!!!!

  1. I wish there were a zillion versions of the Noggin Stick! And OMG, your kid is so cute! That bottom picture looks like he’s saying, “I didn’t realize air could be COLD!” 🙂

  2. Given your role model as a Mom, I knew you would be a good mother, but I didn’t imagine you would be this amazing of a mom….that Jace is a lucky (and very cute) guy! I am so impressed that you don’t whine even a LITTLE bit about sleep deprivation…and that you find all the joy in the experience. Good for you and good for him, love you…
