Where Has the Time Gone?

It's been a while since I posted so this will be a little catch up...

First here is the five things that Boston has to have in his room:
(He was tagged by Hayden)

1. His binky. He loves his binky! I'm starting to take it away during the daytime, now that he's getting a little older. But he really gets whiny when he wants it.

2. Mr. Potato Head Collection. His favorite is Darth Mash (pretty scary in his bunny slippers).

This is when I discovered he could reach the top of the dresser from his crib...

And he can reach the laundry basket. He grabs anything he can get his hands on...
(Back to the list.)

3. His super soft blankies. He's had these since he was first born. Now he rubs his face into the softness.


4. The lantern that both he and his birthmom have. We bought it to remind both of us, that sometimes you have to step forward into the darkness and have faith that the Lord will light the way.
5. Boston Red Sox stuff - this isn't all of it, but this is the stuff that is out right now.

It's been almost two weeks now, but I wanted to post these pictures from when we met Rachael, Hayden, and Kimmy at the park. It was a little chilly, but still fun.







Then this is us enjoying the warmer weather in Rachael's backyard.
I'm glad it's starting to warm up. Boston really enjoys being outside. It's nice to be able to get out every once in a while and feel the sunshine.

Also, these last couple of weeks I started a new job at Sylvan Learning Center. I am a teacher/tutor there. So far, the schedule has been nice. Only a couple days a week for two or three hours each day. I'm trying to get four hours each day, but it's not that busy yet. It should really pick up in the summer, I hear.

Boston's First Easter

For Easter Weekend we visited Misty (Zariph's sister) in Colorado. Boston was so good in the car. We hooked up our portable DVD player to see if he would like that. During some parts of the movies he would laugh, so I guess he enjoyed it. I tried to teach Boston "peek-a-boo", and he's starting to get it.

At dinner on Saturday night Boston looked right at Roy and did peek a boo perfectly (covering his eyes and pulling his hands away quickly). That made the whole table laugh. We had a fun time in Colorado just hanging out, coloring easter eggs, and spending time together. Although, I was hoping the weather would be nicer than it was. Zariph made up an egg hunt with clues that the girls had to decipher and bought fun little prizes for them. The girls were so excited that I would jump on the trampoline with them. ( I needed some excersize from eating out all weekend.) We went shopping on Saturday and Zariph saw these blocks that he thought would be really fun for Boston. He loved to tear down what Zariph and Destiny made.Sunday morning Saphire and Destiny looked for the 80 eggs the Easter Bunny hid. I'm not sure if they found them all. They were hid in some weird places.

Boston loved what the Easter Bunny left for him. Hmmm, didn't he play with those blocks the night before?

This is Boston in his "Easter outfit". It was a little cold for shorts, but he didn't wear them all day. The shorts kept falling off of him when he'd stand up anyway. Both the onesie and shorts are 18 months, so they'll fit him this summer.

After church on Sunday, we went to one of Roy's relative's house for lunch. From there we headed out on the road back home

Changes

This week I decided to set up a new scrapbooking space for me...
Boston is not napping as long now, and it's been hard to get anything done while he is awake. He always wants to be right by me. Even sometimes when we're in the same room together he just wants to be held. But, at least I can scrapbook a little at a time while he is playing. I can't scrapbook where all my stuff is because that is also the computer room. Boston loves buttons and cords, so he is quickly attracted to everything I don't want him to touch. So this works out good. Hopefully now I can get some pages completed.
Here is a video I took of Boston this morning. He has pulled himself up before, but I think he gets scared of falling, so he's a little more cautious.
