Stripes and treats and a jumping Jack

Today we visited my family. Baby boy had a lot of fun cooing and laughing at everyone, and even showed off his almost crawling skills. His outfit coincidentally matched that of his majka and did. So cute!
Jackers and his grandpa - fishermen in nautical stripes
Crawling with grandma - more matching stripes
While grandparents swooned over baby boy, his aunties and cousin S baked some delicious treats.

These treats were spongy and covered in chocolate and fluffy and coconut-hairy. I LOVE it!
Later, at home, while hubby and I prepared dinner, baby boy jumped around until he tuckered out and fell asleep.
So tired
We woke him up for a feeding and a bath and then we put him in his crib. Now mama needs to get ready for Monday madness - put away clean laundry, pack lunch and baby's stuff for day care. Wish weekends were longer.

Rainy day

Yesterday morning was cloudy and a bit cold. I put on a light jacket on baby and went out on the back porch.
You may remember this jacket from a previous post. I knitted this baby surprise jacket while I was pregnant. There is something so special about wrapping your baby up in yarn. I am looking forward to knitting more stuff for him - just wish I had more time.
Later in the morning we headed downtown for the Farmer's Market and then planned on going to the Arts Festival, but it started raining so we headed home instead. Sad that we are going to miss the Arts Festival this year. But there will be more. And baby boy will be older so he might enjoy the art instead of dozing off in his stroller.
