Linus – Week 21
Wow, week 21? How is that possible? Yen and I talk often about how short a time, really, it’s been since we’ve known this little guy. At the same time, he’s such an important piece of our lives that we can’t really imagine anymore what it was like before him.
All bundled up in a sweatshirt for our walk in Concord. We had an unseasonably warm day-after-Christmas, so we took advantage of it with a nice long stroll. Linus genuinely seemed to enjoy seeing the trees again, and of course everyone we passed got a huge smile when they saw him. No photos because – believe it or not – we forgot the camera!
Linus’s new food this week is peas. He adores them! I believe they’ve actually knocked sweet potatoes out of the number one slot.
I love it when he wears this sweatshirt. Trying to get the most out of it before he outgrows it. Here we were getting ready for a day in the city.
We parked in a new garage, which just happens to be in building with a fancy lobby. We posed in front of their Christmas decorations before heading outside. Linus was unimpressed.
As I said… not impressed!
We were, though. Here’s the ceiling!
Here Linus and Yen are standing on the greenway. Linus is wrapped up snug in the new bjorn cover that co ba bought for him.
We tried so hard to get some photos of us in front of the water. But Linus spotted the sun reflected on the water behind us, and he couldn’t take his eyes off of it.
So eventually I gave up and looked at the reflection with him. He was right: it was pretty neat.
Our destination was the aquarium, and it turned out that everyone else in Boston had the same idea. We visited a few of the tanks downstairs, then gave up and went outside again. So happy to have a membership so we can drop in and out!
Continuing on, we found a carousel!
I was awfully excited by all of the different animals. But again, Linus just didn’t seem interested. It was as if… he was only four months old or something.
Finally I discovered what was so much more interesting than the carousel and the children riding it: his feet.
Next we headed over to Quincy Market to check out the tree. Linus was far more interested in all of the people.
Isn’t this the greatest shirt? It’s just such a total baby boy shirt!
One day Linus will be very unhappy about these last photos. Yen captured him struggling to poop. Poor guy! All those peas had to come out again somehow…
