The Adventures of Sloane

Perfect Weekend... and SHE WALKS!!

Sometimes, weekends like these make me remember oh so exquisitely why I wanted to be a parent in the first place. We had a lot to do in advance of my business trip to Oklahoma on Tuesday. There was laundry and grocery shopping and outgrown baby clothes to be sorted. There was how-to-feed your-finicky-toddler books to read and work-brought-home to be done. Did it get done? Some did, some didn't. It doesn't matter. What does matter is that we had a wonderful time together as a family on this three day weekend. We played and we laughed and we tickled and we rough-housed. We ate and we sang songs and we danced and we laughed some more. It was the best.

Plus a few hours ago, at about 5:17 pm, Sloane let go of the chair she was holding on to and walked about three or four feet across the room into my waiting arms. That's right. Not holding on to anything. Then she did it about three more times. My baby is a toddler {sniff}.

Pictures from the weekend, courtesy of my new LG Shine phone (batteries on the regular camera died a few days ago and we just bought new ones this afternoon):

(eating blueberry waffle at the new Belgian wafflerie in South Orange)

(trying to break into the dresser to throw clothes around the room - one of her favorite activities)

(this morning we drove up to the Wanaque Reservoir in northwest Passaic County and walked around)

(we stopped for lunch afterwards and my sandwich came with fries, which I am not too fond of. However, Sloane not only snagged a couple of fries off my plate... she ate them too!)

(getting ready to walk... unfortunately, no actual pictures or video of the walking as we were too slow and too stunned)

and finally, a video with sound (the phone has a video camera that records sound and compresses file size, much better than our old digital):
