We had yet another great week! Friday I took Winston to my work to see a co-worker who just got back from maternity leave. She brought her little boy in and we just put them side by side in their carseats and watched them sleep. It was fun catching up with her and seeing her little one. Then we picked up Whit from work and went up to Bountiful to visit his mom. We went out for Indian food and had a great visit. And Winston was so good the whole time we were in the restaurant! He just sat on our laps contently while we ate. It was great.
Saturday we had some friends over for sushi night and games! Whit worked really hard all day and made some delicious sushi sauces and tempura vegetables. He's such a sport to cook for all of us :)
Winston was a pretty happy camper, until it was time to go to bed. I think he knew he was missing out on all of the fun, so he just kept crying and crying. But I did get a picture of him when he was still happy :)
Everybody made their own sushi roll (or two, as in my case!) and we all shared and ate. It was delicious!
We have been blessed with such wonderful friends and we love getting together!
Sunday we went down to Spanish Fork to hear my dad speak in stake conference. He gave a really good talk on the scriptures. After conference we all had a nice lunch together. Whit's brussell sprouts were the hit of the afternoon. Everyone wanted the recipe :) I somehow thought that 6 diapers would be enough for the day, but Winston managed to go through all of them by 4:00 in the afternoon. And he was being a little fussy, so we figured it would be best to head home. He slept for most of the ride, but the last 20 minutes or so he kept crying. When we got home, we figured out why:
Poor kid! his blanket had fallen completely over his face! I know it's hard to tell, but he's really in his carseat--wearing socks on his hands and a blanket on his head. We couldn't tell that had happened, because of the car seat cover. But suddenly the crying made sense. We're such clueless parents sometimes! :)
But he seems to be developing alright, despite his crazy, less-than-perfect parents.
Case and point: this morning I propped him up on a pillow on the bed, so I could post to the blog. He was happy and talking away. After a couple of minutes I turned around to check on him, and saw this...
Yep, spit up all over himself and rolled completely off the pillow!
and he still manages to be adorable (at least to me) even with spit up all over his face!
Sure do love this little guy!!!
