He didn't want to smile , but here are some pictures from the park a couple blocks from our house.
Niko and I have a a morning routine, but it pretty much stops there. He definitely isn't the baby that goes down for a nap at exactly the same time every day or goes to bed at the same time every night. Ever since he was a newborn, he couldn't really follow a schedule. I never really tried too hard either. He goes to sleep when he's tired and he eats when he's hungry...that's what I do so he might as well also. =) Nothing in our lives is scheduled and every day is totally different.
Anyway, our morning routine is: wake up around 6:30 or 7 am, play for a little while, Niko eats mashed banana and oatmeal, play some more, Niko starts rubbing his eyes around 8, and WE go back to sleep until 10. Then we go for a walk. Perfect morning.
Here is the gorgeous view from our room in Palm Springs and us sharing a nice big bed. Too bad it isn't big enough for Daddy too. =(
For a 1/2 birthday present, Nino bought Niko this water thing. I don't really know what it is, but it has a slide, a cave, a dolphin to sit on, a ring stacker, and it shoots water all over the place. It's pretty amazing and hopefully Niko will get more out of it than a blow up pool. We spent an hour blowing the darn thing up only to find out that the water was way too cold for the little man. Another day...
