Hanging around with Tata

We just kinda hung around outside the house. Apparently I am a 'chick magnet' to hang around with Tata said.

Granny Branka Visits

Atticus had a lovely week when Granny Branka visited. We took the train to town and he got to shop lots and is becoming a true professional.

Head to the Hills

We took Atticus to Marin to do some hiking in his new backpack carrier. He seemed very happy to be carried up and down the hill, even settling down for a nap on the way back up.

We stopped for a picnic at the bottom near to the beach which Atti seemed to enjoy. He went exploring with Tata, Tata enjoyed this more I think.

There were a lot of sail boats racing in the bay so we sat a while longer and watched them pass. They only passed in one direction which was puzzling but I'm sure they made it back eventually.

It was an exhausting day for Atticus, and we took him home for a well earned nap.

Yummy Lunch

We went to Leena and Prashant for lunch today and it was delicious. Atticus tried his first spicy food which he seemed to enjoy a lot.

We passed him around the table taking turns in eating, a little exhausting but it all panned out ok. We had a group 'hug' photo taken to remember the great lunch.

Pondering on Life and Food Shopping

Off we went for the weekly shop to TJ's and now Atticus can sit in the cart it makes things a lot easier. Whereas before I had to use the Bjorn carrier, now we can calmly stroll around and Atti enjoys the view and also the attention from many other shoppers. The cute hat helps. Mummy had to buy this hat as Tata didn't want to go out with Atti wearing the first hat that Mummy had purchased saying that it was a "girly bonnet". Fair enough, we'll just use it when Tata isn't with us.

And he's off........

Today was the day that Atticus progressed from the commando crawl to the full on move like lightening crawl. He just got it as he moved across the nursery, up onto the knees he went and there has been no stopping him since.

Deda and Winnie are now constantly on red alert as they seems to be what Atticus gravitates to once he is on a roll. Deda especially is a nervous wreck and I suspect wishes he had eyes in the back of his head.

I, Mama, am getting fitter by the day due to all the running or crawling around after the boy.

Today we had a play date with Emily and Sam. We walked to the top of the hill and tried out the slide at McInley Park. Lots of fun was had by all and a nap was required on the way home.

In the Swim

It was time to perfect the front crawl again at the weekend so off it was to the Northbeach Swimming Pool. I didn't take the plunge this time as I was recovering from a cold but Antun and Atticus did a few laps. Atticus made a friend who kind of distracted him from swim practice a little.

Self Feeding

"Hey, this feeding business isn't that hard. I mean, you put some of that mushy stuff on this plastic stick think and throw it towards your face, and sometime it goes in the hole that I make noise out of, which is good, I think".

"My hat, my hat - you gotta be kidding me right. When did Flock of Seaguls come out of retirement?"

Down by the Bay

We were waiting to see the whale with the polka dot tail down by the bay.

Going to the Park

We went to Golden Gate Park for a picnic today with Kate and Justin. The weather was unusually warm for this time of year and the park was pretty full. Strollers as far as the eye could see!
Kate was very determined to get Atticus crawling and he was trying his best, even Luna assisted in the process.

No I've Got a Real Bike

I was born for speed Baby, speed I tell you. We then removed the helmet for mashed carrots and a change of diaper :)
