Peek-a-boo and pork roast
I've never posted a photo of World's Cutest Baby on this blog. Maybe I'm overly paranoid, but there are a lot of weirdos out there, and you never know who is looking at pictures of your kid. This, however, is a photo I can post! WCB mastered the art of peek-a-boo while we were on our way to Grandma and Grandpa's house in Omaha this past weekend. Here she is, demonstrating how she holds the blanket in the "up" or "Ha HA, I have disappeared!" position. This was a very exciting development, to be sure, but most of the drive went like this: "Wheeeeeeeeeere's WCB?" (Pause) "There she is!" "Wheeeeeeeeeeeeere's WCB?" (Pause) "There she is!"
Did I mention it is a two-hour drive?
We had a nice, relaxing weekend, except when WCB expressed her great displeasure at having to sleep in the travel crib each night. We got to spend time with our WCG (that would be World's Cutest Godson) who is five weeks younger than WCB and is already (cough) crawling. WCB watched him do it, but didn't pick up any pointers, because she is still happy to be stationary.
We drove back to Kansas City on Sunday, just barely missing some horrible storms that ripped through Kansas and Missouri. We had no idea anything had happened. I heard about it from the free-sample woman at Hy-Vee, who was handing out little chunks of pork roast in plastic cups. She had to explain that the roast was so dry because she had to leave it in the warmer while everyone ran to the shelter. High adventure at Hy-Vee! Our house is still standing and the cat didn't blow away, so I guess I can put up with some dry roast.
