Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day, a day to remember those who have served our country and a day for grilling meats. We feel pretty good about having done both.

It was a busy day for the little man. I have been sick all weekend but the husbandit has done a great job of taking care of me and Giddy. This morning he blew up the new baby pool and we took it for a test drive, after slathering on a thick layer of baby sunscreen of course. Initially Gideon was not enthused but after Mac heated the water some, he was much more relaxed and even splashed and kicked. I think it will be a lot more fun for all of us when he can sit up on his own, but I am impatient.

As a reward for humoring mommy and daddy in the baby pool Gideon got to play in his jumperoo for 30 whole minutes! During this time he and Mac devised a game where Mac would jump, then Gideon. It was cute. As you can see, he still has sunscreen on his head.

Okay baby bathtime!


  1. Jumperoos ARE awesome, but so are you guys! You are having so much fun with your little man! It's a joy to watch!

  2. Hehe, I'm so glad you were inspired to get a kiddie pool! Gideon will be a little fish-baby in no time!
