Joel is usually home by 4pm from work. But today, being Tuesday, Joel had Kung Fu after work- and he was not going to be home until after 6pm. I've been spoiled having Joel be home so early, and I admit, I get a bit anxious about the 2 extra hours I now have with baby- when I usually have Joel's help. (A bit strange actually- I liken it to a plane ride- 10 hours is long, but 12 hours just seems like eternity. )
So, at 8am, when Joseph fought against his morning nap- I knew we were heading towards a "loooooong day." My solution? Make brownies. Brownies with walnuts! yummm.
It's a good thing too- because- after Joe decided to miss his afternoon nap as well (he does morning, noon, afternoon naps)- my "looooooong day" only seemed like a "long day" :)
FYI- Joel is working on his broad sword form in Kung Fu- he's a lefty but holds the sword by the right hand. very impressive!
Joe has been pushing around a mini chair as a walker. He's so stinkin' cute- here's a video. There's also a picture of him driving around--- sportin' a Tai Yim (Kung Fu) shirt. Just like dada!
