Things have been crazy, busy for us ~ as it always is this time of year. That's why it has taken me so long to get the blog up and running. I am not sure if I am really happy with the new look, so it may change when I have time.
Going back to work has been HARD!! I miss being home with Nugget. Sadly this new transition has also been really hard for him. He has had a hard time adjusting to day care. I have so much to say about that I will give it a post of it's own. The first post on this blog should be happy - in my opinion.
The first week of August we took Nugget to the aquarium and the Cincinnati Zoo. Nugget loves fish. He LOVED the aquarium! It was so amazing to watch him gaze up at all of the fish. He'd grunt, smile, clap, and enjoyed every minute. Especially when we would walk through the tubes and fish were all around. It was such a fun day!
The zoo was not as successful. Partly because he was so tired. It was the first time we stayed in a hotel room since China. Nugget didn't sleep very well; neither did we. It was also difficult for him to see some of the animals. The only time Nugget showed any excitement was when we went into the Manatee House. There were large aquarium tanks in there. I'm telling you, my boy likes fish! :o)
Here are a few pictures from our trip:
Oh! How I love this face!
Of course we had to see the polar bears!
I make no promises that I will post consistantly, but I hope to post. I would really like to keep a journal of our life as Nugget grows up. He changes so much each and every day.
I have decided that I not going to use names on this blog. This is not a private blog and in time I am sure looky-loos will find us. For that reason I am going to remain nameless.
I don't know how, but I started calling our boy Nugget several months ago. It's a good all around nickname. Usually at some point of the day he is called Turkey Nugget or Stinker Nugget, but most of the time it's just Nugget. So for the time being he'll be Nugget here too.
