Better Late Than...

No, we're not expecting number three. I just haven't posted anything in a long time. You know, because I have so many amazing things to blog about.

Last Saturday we took the boys to the Bronx Zoo. It was a gorgeous, autumn-like day; absolutely perfect for strolling around the zoo. Jack had so much fun, and John and I loved taking in everything through his eyes - the gorillas, the reptile house (reminded me of the first Harry Potter book), the butterfly gardens, the children's zoo. Ted was good for the most part, but I think eating on the run made him especially gassy (it's hard to nurse while people watching). As all you moms know, what do gassy babies do? Usually, they cry. A lot. Which, of course, Ted did. So why was I getting dirty looks from other moms? I mean, really - your kid never had gas? Please. The only thing major bummer about the day is that John has no concept of hunger. Thankfully Jack is usually fine as long as he has snacks (have goldfish, will travel), but going from 11:30 to 4:30 and stopping at 1pm to share one pretzel between the three of us, then stopping for lunch at 3:45, was completely insane. Still, it was really nice to have a fun family day.

Not much else happened this past week. Jack finished swimming lessons for the summer. The weather was like fall, and it seemed like every kid was off. Jack spent Monday being completely contrary and very touchy the rest of the week. Ted's been cranky, which is pretty unusual for him. He's got about four teeth in various stages of arrival, so that would explain it. But I lived to tell, so all is well.
