Jace wore his Spiderman shirt. And spent the morning teaching Claire about Spiderman. We went to the park in the afternoon. I carried Jace there in the Ergo, but he wasn’t interested in being carried on our way home. Instead, he wanted to walk. That would have been fine, but he only wanted to walk in places where he could have one foot on pavement and one foot on leaves. So we walked back and forth and back and forth along this stretch of street until he finally got tired enough to let me carry him the rest of the way home.
And now check out the amazingly colorful design he showed off at the playground! Very cool shirt! And very impressive skill going down the stairs! Jace isn’t too sure about the slides yet, but he sure likes climbing to the top of the slide platform. And then back down. And then back up. And then back down. At least he’s walking now so it’s not as hard on his little knees!
After the playground, Jace decided he needed a snack. He stopped on the walkway to our front door and started eating my tomatoes. It was cute and he was happy – until he started trying to eat the green ones.
He took a really late nap that day which meant it would probably be a later bedtime. Knowing this, we decided to go to the IronPigs game. It was the last home game of the season and it was packed. It was a good game and Jace had a great time running around. We left after the bottom of the 10th because it was getting really late. Everyone around us protested and told us that Batman doesn’t have a bedtime. Ha! Our little Batman didn’t make it to bed until almost 11pm. That’s waaaaay past his bedtime!
Today, Jace wore his Ninja Turtle shirt. He was very active in the kitchen while we were trying to make dinner. We’re going through some boxes from the basement, so the counters are a mess. Jace wanted to add to the chaos, so he pulled all kinds of stuff out of boxes we’d already sorted, threw everything from his high chair tray onto the floor, and tried to empty the kitchen drawers. He thought it was hilarious!
Lastly, Jace has some new bath toys! Most of his squirting toys are starting to mold, so we got some non-squirting toys. The boats don’t really float very well, but Jace likes to chew on them. And the foam animals are great! They even stick to the side of the tub!
Here are a few videos from the past week.

I’m not sure what the objective was here, but Jace definitely had a plan in mind. The gallons of tea are just too heavy for him, so he recruits Adam and me for the heavy lifting. He does this every day when we walk past that section of the store.

Jace is a pretty happy guy. And very ticklish!

Jace likes games that involve anticipation and he likes games that involve anything to do with his toes. So this is a perfect mix! Sometimes he’ll bring a toy or stuffed animal over to me, sit down, and stick his foot out towards me – just waiting for me to play the game!
