He is very good at blowing bubbles and kicking!!

Also, we took pictures with a rocking chair that my mom got for her first Christmas. So the painting on the chair is very 1960s. C used the same rocker with his
All in all, I am pretty impressed with how my weekend went. I certainly hope it carries on into the week!!
