Day Out With Thomas

I'm pretty sure James and I were more excited to take Joshua to Day Out With Thomas on the Heber Valley Railroad than Joshua was. Unfortunately James ended up being out of town for it (poor guy was on a canyoneering trip all week) so he wasn't able to go but my cousin Cheri came along for the fun.

They had a lot of fun, different activities--riding the Thomas train, playing with bubbles, a hay maze, miniature golfing, train tables to play with, a thomas movie, balloon making, magic shows--lots! One of Joshua's favorite things there was an ambulance that was there as a safety precaution. Of course the thing he likes the most is free to see!

Baby Food, Again

green beans
I made my own baby food again this time around.  I got a little annoyed at having to again look up how to make stuff and when to give it so I made--yet another-- blog with very to the point information about homemade baby food. Hopefully I can refer here in the future and it will make baby food making even quicker and easier. If you are interested it can be found here. Also, here is a previous post on how to make homemade baby food. It really isn't that hard, I promise.

With Jacob we have also done baby-led weaning which I have loved doing. By 9 months he could eat 99% of what we were eating--all by himself! Now at 13 months he is starting to learn to use a spoon and fork. I'm pretty sure Joshua was still very much on purees at this age.
