Mars is 1 year, 8 months, 2 weeks, and 2 days old!
It's been a bit quiet around here but irl, we've been busy! Right after our visit in New York, we went to Southern California to hang out with my family and pretty much live everyday like a vacation. We went swimming, shopping, and just lounged around and enjoyed the 100 degree heat. It was so much fun and I miss it already. I sometimes dream about what it would be like to move our little family to So Cal :)
To catch up, here are some pictures from our trip. Since Mars loves trains, I took him to the Irvine Regional Park to ride the little train and to run around the pumpkin patch. It was super hot so he doesn't look particularly happy, but I think he had a good time.
Mars can say a lot of words now and his first two-word combo is "no more" and it sounds like "no-mohr". He can repeat after what we say but usually only pronounces the first phoneme correctly :) It's super cute, "kiwi" becomes "kewpie", "Halloween" becomes "ha-wee", etc.
