A Visit to J. Lohr

Matt and I had not been to J. Lohr Winery in a long time. The last time I had been was when my mother had come to town two years ago for Mother’s Day and she, Candy and I all went together. As I was pregnant with William at the time I could not drink, yet we still had a good time. Matt’s last visit had even been longer than that. So we looked forward to going now as I would be able to enjoy the tasting with Matt.

A Toy To Encourage Walking

One of the best parts about having William go to daycare is how many different experiences he can have there. Mirabel has a house full of toys for young kids of all ages. When she asked me if she should try a baby walker with him, I of course said OK, eager to see how he would do with it.

Countdown to William’s First Birthday

Ever since I put a date tracker on my phone, I’ve been looking forward to this day. William is exactly 100 days away from his first birthday. Though I have many, many photos of him, I used this one, of him looking at Candy at only a few weeks old with a look of intelligence and perhaps a little contemplation in his eyes.

Two Infants in Church Nursery

One of the best parts of talking William to the nursery in church is that there is usually at least one other child to play with him. Today in service a mom and dad were there with their three kids, two of whom went to children’s ministry classes and one of whom was a baby in a stroller. At one point the baby was crying and would not stop and I remember thinking how cool it would be if they found their way over the nursery. To my delight, when I went to pick up William, it turns out they had indeed found the nursery.

A Bit Better Already

When we took William to the doctor, yesterday, she had told us that not only was he through the worst of his cold, but she expected him to be through it quickly. We were all looking forward to him being back to healthy soon. Mirabel gave him extra love knowing he was still feeling a bit under the weather.

William’s Doctor Visit for Diagnosis

Even though William has been very healthy so far, for which we are, of course, grateful, we did expect him to get sick from time to time. Over the last few days he’d had a stuffy nose and was even hitting himself on the side of his head. We didn’t know if he was teething, sick or was having something else going on, however, we decided it was a good idea for him to see a doctor.
