On day 4 in Ohio, we visited with Betty and the kids got to play with Brady after school.
That night we went to Fairlawn Church for a fundraiser. It was located in a gigantic gym that had long stretches of walkways for ladyBug to practice her walking… At first she required a lot of walking while holding our hands. After an hour or so of that, the fundraiser was over and people started getting up, walking around, and leaving… ladyBug took off!
The huge gym gave her the length to really practice her walking. Boo was super supportive and tried helping her up after each fall. So sweet… =)
She was already practicing her turns and pivots =D
On our 5th and last day in Ohio, we spent a quiet day at the house. With it being Renae’s day off, Boo got to experience a bunch of different stuff. Since I’ve been sleeping in every morning, I basically miss all the photos. I was able to catch this: Boo was super proud of himself and excited to help make carrot juice =D
Living with a vegan family for the week allowed us to eat so much more fruits and vegetables than usual. We loved it. In fact, through a number of other influences this past year on top of this, we decided to reduce our meat and processed foods intake and increase our fresh veggies and fruit intake. So I introduce to you, Tasty Tuesdays: a log of our flavor and cooking journey of our almost-vegetarian diet.
Super early the next morning, we made our way back to New York… Boo, on many many occasions, said he wanted to go to Shannon’s home. When we replied that we were going to our home, he replied that he wanted Shannon to come to our home. Over this past week, Boo grew really attached to Shannon. He followed her just about everywhere… whenever she would go off and do her own thing, Boo would go around the house looking for her, asking for her, wondering where she at, and asking when she was coming back. He was pretty sad we were leaving her and about her for days after. But once we got the DVD running in the van, he was satisfied. By the way, it was through this road trip that the baby got hooked on TV… Yes, that is a string of cheerios she’s eating hanging off the hook in the van…
we miss Ohio…
