This past weekend was a great time for the Updyke Family. The weather was beautiful and we had some great times with friends. Oscar is so fun these days! He is able to stay awake longer and is becoming more alert by the minute. It really makes getting out of the house a lot of fun. I will add however, that if you plan on getting your child addicted to a pacifier, do not even THINK of forgetting it at home as I learned yesterday. But we’ll save that for another post 😉
This weekend we went swimming, attended a birthday party, went out to dinner, went to church and watched a movie! It was the perfect ratio of family:friends and I even scored a shopping trip all by myself! I didn’t really think it would matter what day it was once I started being home full-time, but I really do still find myself looking forward to weekends. It’s so much fun to watch Jerry with Oscar in the mornings. I think that is their best bonding time. Anyway! Pictures! We have pictures!
We took Oscar swimming for the first time on Friday night. It’s a heated indoor pool so it was only a matter of scheduling our first visit. Now that we have gone as a family, I plan to go each week with some of my other mom friends and then switch to the outdoor pool when it opens for the summer. We dipped Oscar’s feet in the water and he instantly started to cry so we pulled them right back out. My theory is that his feet were cold and the warm water initially felt too hot. Then we just went for it and he was fine! We didn’t get too many smiles oin this first visit, but he definitely didn’t hate it. We went in the evening right before his normal bedtime so he was getting tired also. That said, WE had a great time! It’s clear in all of the pictures that Jerry and I are having a ball and Oscar is just along for the ride. I am sure that will switch in the future but it was funny to look at the pics and see how ridiculous we were. We were even approached by a guy who offered to take a pic of the 3 of us and he said that it was obvious that it was our first time and he could see the pure joy all over us 🙂 Here are a few pictures:
On Saturday we went to a birthday party for our friend Gibson. She’s 1 this year so Oscar got his first taste of hanging with his buds. He did so great at the party and that helped us have a great time too! I am sure it will be the first of many celebrations 🙂 Happy Birthday lil G !
