My students are working on an Impressionism Lesson, and for that, they had to bring in fruits and vegetables to sketch and eventually paint. Knowing that most of them would not bring anything in, I bought some bananas-- among other fruits and veggies. Well, 5 days later and there's really only one thing those bananas were good for any more.... so I brought them home and made some banana nut bread. Holy damn is it good?!!!
On another note...
Weston is getting big! He's 12lbs. now and we think he's about to go through another growth spurt. He has already out grown most of his 0-3mo. clothes with footies-- he's just too long!! When Matt took him in for his 2mo. shots, he weighed in the 50th percentile, but was in the 90th percentile for height.
We have continued our bed time routine of bath, tummy time, and bottle/book. The other night he rolled, unassisted from his back to his stomach... Matt and I beamed-- we were so proud. Though we have decided to read chapter books to him at night and forgo the childrens' books. We don't have an extensive childrens' library at home and right now, when he's not really engaged in the book, we don't want to get burned out on them. So, for now, while one of us feeds him, the other reads from a book we are interested in. This way, he's still getting the interaction with both parents and being exposed to a broad vocabulary at the same time. Right now we're reading, "Lost on Everest: The Search for Mallory & Irvine," by Peter Firstbrook.
Below are the most recent pictures of Weston... enjoy.
