16 Months and Rain

Alex turned 16 months! He is talking more and getting more interested in his toys. Recent words include: apple and baby. He has my brother's Cabbage Patch and he likes 'taking care' of the doll.

On Thursday, we had our first taste of fall. It was slightly chilly and rainy. I got out Alex's rain coat for Gymboree and I do belive the coat is almost as long as he is. He switches class this coming week, to Mondays. He is now a level 4!

Drums and more Drums

Over the holiday weekend Teresa and Edward were here. Other then the rain ruining our chances of going to the Zoo, it was a nice time. Ran around and did some stuff...used my PBK coupon and gift card for small child's Christmas ;)

On Monday, the rain finally went away and we were able to go to the Missouri Botanical Garden for the Japanese Festival. This is the second year we have gone. Those of you who know my husband know that he went to school in Japan for a while and quite enjoys the culture. I got to have my Buddah's Delight and Eric got his Curry. He talks about that Curry aaalllllll year. The Gardens were packed, but we were able to see the Ice Sculpting demo and the Drums. St. Louis has a Osuwa Taiko chapter and we were able to sit through about half of the performance. Alex is in love with the drums. The spent the whole time attentive and clapping. Imagine son leaning toward percussion :) (I played percussion, while Eric played the trumpet.)

My last PT appointment is today, Friday, and I will be discharged. I am getting ready for the Just Between Friends sale next Friday and my cousin Jackie's wedding next Saturday. This next week will be quite busy! Eric and I did take a brief 'time out' last night and saw a movie and had Oberweise...wished Oberweise was a bit closer, but worth every penny!
