Carson helps his mom with her workouts.
I just love the sequence of events that seem to play out in this slideshow. Uncle Dodo really only appears to be oblivious.
We went swimming today at the YMCA. Carson was groggy all day – every time we put him down, he fell asleep, only to wake up in a completely different location, in a completely different outfit, having slept through the in-between…
He woke up after this nap, wearing bathing trunks and staring at an indoor pool – I don’t think he’d ever seen one before, and he wasn’t sure he liked it.
Of course, he was all over that pool within 15 minutes – Uncle Dodo and Mom swam him all over the place. I, on the other hand, had chickened out of swimming, opting instead to photograph and video this landmark episode in my grandson’s life, only to be informed that I could not take photos inside the facilities, which should have occurred to me…
All in all, it was a good day… we shall all sleep well tonight, I think.
They have arrived! Carson made himself right at home with the Cheerios… I don’t mind that so much – but he has learned to put his own boots on recently. He has also learned that Cheerios being squished under one’s boot makes a very satisfying, crunchy mess.
While Mom went out on the town with Aunty Em, Carson and I went to visit Gramma Dot. He went straight to her baking cupboard and got out the measuring cups (he also knows where to find the soda crackers, and is not shy about bringing them to Gramma Dot so that she can get him some).
As the video shows, the latest fave thing at Gramma Dot’s house is trying to figure out how to work the walker. One time, Ruby’s grandson put Carson on the seat and Ruby drove him all over the house. He’s trying to figure out how to get it moving now on his own, but so far, none of us have cracked and shown him how to work the brakes…
We had a good visit – Carson wore himself out, but of course, would not admit it. Ruby and I, on the other hand are tuckered enough to just crawl into bed now.
