Harmonica Harmony

This past weekend, Calvin enjoyed the company of Corey. The two played at the playground and inside, enjoying trains, drums, balls, the keyboard, harmonica, and hugs. We also had fun welcoming baby Natey into the extended family.

Slides & Stiches

Last week Calvin began going down the taller slides and the spiral slides for the first time. It started with the spiral. He finally went for it, first on his belly, then facing forward sitting up. After that, he has been loving it - the taller the better, the more curves the more fun.
Yesterday while racing to the top of the tall, steep slide, while holding a ball, Calvin slipped and bit his lower lip. Blood all down his chin, it took us a bit to realize how deep the cut was, and we decided to boogie down to the ER - just in case. 3 stitches later, Calvin will still have a gorgeous smile. Cal was really amazing, his big upset was leaving the playground. His parents, a little shaken, but moving on.

The Beach

Cal loves to sit in the wave breakwater and scoot closer and closer to the deeper areas. He enjoyed touching snails, crabs and fish, running after seagulls, playing in the sand and building castles, and finding rocks and throwing them into the water. Plop. Hours and hours of entertainment.

Found my tongue!

The Cousins Dinner

The California cousins came in for a long weekend. We had a wonderful time with them while they checked out Boston campuses. We also had a fun adventure exploring my home campus Northeastern University, and then later in the North End and Quincy Market area. Calvin loved the Harbor Seals at the Aquarium too. We also met third cousins for the first time this week which was a treat. They live two miles away and happen to have a daughter perfect to babysit Calvin in a few years. At our dinner table was first cousins, second cousins, third cousins, and third cousins once removed!
