George is 13 months old today!
Celebrating 4th of July at Five Guys
George ate an entire berry bowl from Pret--he loves strawberries!
Walking around Waterloo Lake at Roundhay Park
Lunch in Wetherby
We got this cute little wooden train at John Lewis in York. We're getting a John Lewis in Leeds soon--I can't wait! I love their classic kids toys & clothes
We've been going to La Leche League meetings in Ilkley--it's lovely to have a day out there after the meeting!
George still loves the swings
"Poppin' my collar"
At the river in Wetherby
He was very curious about the rocks but we managed to keep them out of his mouth!
Last Saturday we went to Lotherton Hall
He crawled off to play with the giant Jenga set and left us sitting across the lawn
Heading off to explore the giant lawn chess set...
Watching the birds at Lotherton Hall's bird garden
Last Sunday after church we went to Ilkley and George had another go on the swings
Another busy month has flown by! We've been making an effort to get out and about on the weekends, whether the weather cooperates or not. George loves being outside, crawling around on grass and tasting flowers, twigs, etc. I've been busy with marking and a conference paper this month, so George has been having lots of quality time with Daddy. My conference up in York went well and it was lovely to be in 'academic mode' again, but I did miss him and I looked forward to seeing both of my guys at the end of the long conference days (14 hour days, with the commute!). It made me appreciate my part-time work situation--I'd been really frustrated by job application rejections lately, but now I realise how hard it would be to work full-time and commute every day.
George had his first dentist visit earlier this month! He was very good and calm and got a sticker. He also just had his 12-13 month immunisations last week, with four shots this time! There were some tears, but I just comfort fed him and he was all smiles for the nurse before we went home. He had a little site redness and swelling, but it looked much better the next day.
This month's firsts:
First dentist appointment
First MMR vaccine
First visit to Wetherby
First taste of blackberries (a hit!)
