Linus – Week 19
You’re going to have to indulge me this week, because I find some of these pictures absolutely hilarious, but I understand that I might be the only one. For instance, this one. He looks as if he’s giving someone a skeptical, sidelong look. I’m guessing it was me.
As I mentioned last week, he’s the master of his bottle now. He started by using his little hand to tilt it higher when someone held it for him. Now he has just taken control and holds it all on his own.
Of course, he needs a little help right at the end to keep from sucking air. Here’s ba noi helping him get every last drop of milk. I appreciate this so much, because pumping at work isn’t much fun!
Now that Linus has a little solid food each day, he has gotten a little more solid himself. Oh, he’s still our fit little baby. But look at those cheeks!
Here we are on Saturday morning getting ready to go on a field trip. He’s got his new hooded sweatshirt on.
Here’s a rare photo of Yen out from behind the camera.
Linus gets so excited whenever we go anywhere. In fact, if we get him all suited up and put him in his seat but then don’t leave immediately, he becomes enraged!
This week’s field trip was to the Harvard Peabody Museum. It’s free on Sunday mornings for MA residents. They didn’t ask Linus to show an ID, luckily.
Here’s Linus checking out a giant bird. He didn’t seem terribly impressed.
He was much more interested in the hissing cockroach.
This museum is known for its large glass flower exhibit, but it also has glass sea creatures. This is a man o’ war.
By the time we got to the dinosaur section, Linus was getting hungry. Here’s he’s scouting for someplace to eat. We found a little bench behind a triceratops skull.
That? Oh, that’s just a little pear on his face. Poor baby! He loves fruits and vegetables, but sometimes he gets awfully backed up. When the movement finally happens, it’s huge and stinky! We’re trying to prevent all of the drama by feeding more pears and prunes.
This face is, “Stop taking pictures and get me more pear NOW!”
