Catching Up: Before Ari Turned 1

Wow, I am SO behind on this blog! June felt incredibly busy, stressful, and exhausting for some reason, and things haven’t slowed down this month either. I’m even on my lighter work schedule! I think I’m partly trying to focus other things like keeping the house clean and going to bed on time, plus Ari hasn’t been sleeping so well. Anyway, before I write about his birthday and his birthday party, I want to catch up on the end of May and the first half of June!

Here are some pictures of Ari eating a surprisingly messy teething biscuit:

And here he is sneaking into the kitchen – yes, he did eventually get himself stuck and start screaming:

Around the end of May, he was doing more and more standing up by himself, but not taking any steps. Here are some pictures from the park near our house:

He was also interacting with Andrew more, and Andrew was tolerating him better:

Having a vegan pasta “alfredo” made from tofu – yay!
