Farewell Florida

This week is our last in Florida. We plan on leaving on Thursday-ish. I am not sure if that means Thursday night or Thursday morning, yet. I guess I'll make a mental note to ask Tommy what his plans are.

Florida has been fun and relaxing. Wesley has had a blast getting to know Sherry and Kris. He loves his Grandma and Grandpa and his cheeks are getting chapped from all the kisses!

It's really scary, exciting and crazy how much he has learnt and achieved in the couple of weeks we've been here. He is so alert, so smiley, plays on his own on a blanket with some toys (ask anyone who has spent 3 seconds with Wes. He WAS hopeless at entertaining himself. He always needed someones attention, which was quite exhausting!) he does tummy time like a champion, reaches for toys (and other things) he wants, he has teeth right below the gum that we can see, he rolls over... it's really crazy and a little sad at the same time.

I've been doing some cooking for everyone which has been fun. Tommy, of course, knows I love to cook, and has tasted a lot ofmy favourite recipes - but Sherry, Kris and Jonathan are new. Sherry loves pasta, so I've made ravioli and lasagna just for her. And when she ate the lasagna she asked me "Erin, are you sure you're not Italian?" which I thought was pretty high praise :o)

Speaking of making things - last night I made Wesley baby food for the first time. Many of you know that this is an ambition of mine, though with the moving about, and the lack of kitchen gadgets I hadn't made it there yet. However, last night I boiled some organic squash and organic sweet potato and wizzed it up in a a Magic Bullet and it worked beautifully. Wes gobbled it up.

Anywho, I really can't think of anything else to update you on. I don't get online much, and there isn't too much happening. It's mostly just relaxing and spending time with Tommy's family.
