last day of quarantine?!?!?!?!

this is so surreal! i cant believe we're going to take devin out in public TOMORROW! im feeling pretty nervous about it. we plan on bringing him to toys r us which may seem like a crazy idea after not exposing him to any germs or people, we're going to go all out and bring him to a store filled with nasty little children? the one we're going to is always empty, its kind of in a weird place and every time i've gone, there have been maybe 10 people in there so i feel ok about it, plus it just feels like thats what we deserve to do with our kid after so long. i want to go in there and show him all kinds of fun stuff hes never seen before and problably overwhelm the crap out of him :) this weekend for easter sunday we're bringing him to michele's (fabian's sister) to meet his cousins! i plan on calling michele to explain to and warn her about the fact that this is a HUGE step and im going to most likely act like a freak the whole time. she has 3 kids weston, who's 10, alex, 5 and amelia, 4. i have already promised that amelia can hold her cousin... eeeeek! so there will be kid to baby contact and im so happy that we're at this point but oh so scared at the same time. im going to be very "safe" and have them all wash their hands and sanitize them before touching devin and im probably going to be on the verge of a heart attack the whole time. we only plan on staying a few hours because im assuming this will be a great deal for devin to take in. i'll update of course after the fact about how it goes.

oh! i got a nice ass new camera that im so excited about, so i will have much better quality pictures to post from now on! here are a few that i took the first night i got it :)

we gave devin some gerber puffs and yougurt meltaways for the first time last night and he actually picked them up on his own and ate them! it was so cute! he really enjoys feeding himself and i think hes going to do much better with that than with us trying to feed him pureed babyfood. im going to start baby led weaning with him and i really think hes going to take off with it.

here are a couple more pictures i've taken with the new camera. i have'nt read much of the manual yet so im just taking them with the "easy" function for now, but i hope to figure out how to take advantage of all the great things this camera has to offer as soon as i get the time to really play with it and learn more. i really like it so far! its the sony cyber shot 9.1 megapixel.


  1. YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I am so happy for you for so many reason! The quaratine is up! Yeah! He ate food! Yeah! (P.S. I figured out my sparking carrot and sweet potato thing - they are too dry so if you do those add water when you reheat to prevent flames!) and Yeah for the camera! He's so dang cute. I want to know how you get him to smile! Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I was thinking the same thing this morning! Last day :) Although, I have taken him places but have always been super vigiliant about people not touching him. The way I looked at it was that Cooper had just as much chance catching something that my hubby brought home from work...but, I so know what you mean. I can count the people that have held him on one hand so it will be nice to actually let people get to know him up close instead of from afar :)

    I hope Amelia has a great time holding her cousin!

  3. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! That is all I have to say.

  4. :D his eyes sparkle even more now!
