scarry monsters

One of the things that's fun about watching Cassidy grow up is getting to share with him the things that we love and enjoy. While he's still a little young to appreciate Frank Zappa or The Wire, we all agree that Richard Scarry books are awesome. He loves looking through the pictures, finding Lowly Worm in the cereal bowl, and watching Mr. Frumble chase his hat. And who doesn't, really?

baby, I love your way

Cassidy had a very full weekend, including:
- Lots of reading, which is not a surprise. Like his mom, he loves books.
- A trip to Walter Haas Playground, where the gale-force winds gave his hair a "Frampton Comes Alive" look.
- A couple of rounds of bubble-blowing. He found this quite hilarious. Yet another of those things that are incredibly cool, but we forget about as adults.
- His first shower (previously, he's been all about the bath). It was a joint affair with me. He was OK with it until we got his head wet.

Not pictured: a trip to the art supply store and to Lovely Bump to see the turtle, the requisite naps and eating and playing, and his ability to say the word 'hat'.

motherly love

Holly, Rachel, Cassidy and I went out to Liberty Cafe on Saturday for a Mother's Day brunch, followed by a quick excursion to Holly Park. Cassidy has recently mastered the skill of pointing out his body parts (he can be seen here demonstrating "hair").

He's also in this recent tongue-oriented phase; he thinks it's hilarious to stick out his tongue and lick things, including my shoulder, the kitchen floor (eww) and his highchair. We're hoping this passes before junior prom; we'd hate for him to slobber all over his date's corsage.

Some things never change, though - once we got home and had lunch, he snuggled up with Mommy for a bottle and a nap.

hi how are you

Cassidy's getting really good at walking, and has started to add some things that are clearly words to his vocabulary. He's been very vocal for a long time, but much of it seemed to make sense only to him, unless "bise" and "bosh" have some secret meaning we don't know about. But now he's added "hi" to the repertoire; it's incredibly cute - he says hi and waves at pretty much anything, if he's in the mood.
