Mars is 9 months and 7 days old.
Can you see his first tooth in the top picture? So cute!
Last Friday, we went out to dinner with my former student and her mom. Out of nowhere, just sitting in his high chair, Mars started clapping! And since then, it's been his favorite thing to do. The other day, I went out with him in the Ergobaby, and the moment I took him out of it, he started clapping his hands. I guess he wasn't able to clap since the Ergo separates his hands, so he was extra excited to do it once he got out!
I haven't been blogging very much lately and it's for two reasons. One, when Mars isn't trying to mash the keyboard while I'm typing, he's crawling away from me and getting himself into dangerous situations. And two, I've been thinking hard about refocusing the content here and trying to create posts that are more useful and have longer staying power. I mean, capsule wardrobes and weekly wishlists are fun to do, but after the week is done, they feel a bit "so what?" to me. So I'm gonna be gone for a little bit, but don't worry, I'll be back and with even more fun things to share!
Happy Friday, everyone!
