The Pevznamian family had a fun filled Labor Day weekend. First, we ventured to Agawam to see granny, Aunt Elaine, dad and Gale. It's a lot more difficult than it used to be making the 1 1/2 drive, driving to 3 different places, feeding Lucas (and us), and trying to time everything correctly so Lucas will nap in the car. Lucas is a real trooper and did great. He was so exhausted that he fell asleep before we even left dad and Gale's street. Lucas got to see even more members of the Pevzner family when Aunt Terry and Uncle Harley came to visit on Monday. He did great and showed them how he eats Cheerios in his high chair!
We were pooped from all the visiting, but still had some energy to go hiking. Steve bought this nifty, new baby backpack. Lucas smiled the whole time (until he fell asleep on Steve's back)! We'll definitely be using the backpack again soon...probably next weekend when we go apple picking.
Then Steve and Lucas signed up for a "Daddy and Me" swim class at the YMCA. We wanted Lucas to get used to the water early so he isn't afraid, plus it will be a good bonding experience between father and son. I don't know if this makes me a bad mother/wife but I'm also looking forward to an hour or so by myself.
Lucas continues to eat like a horse and we're introducing new foods every 3 days or so. The newest favorite food is Avocado. The kid can't seem to get enough!
