Julian Update
Monday I was supposed to go to Jon's after work, but that got scrapped because I didn't get out of work early enough.  By the time I got home, Jack was getting ready for bed.  So I headed home before dashing off to mikveh duty.  I came home and found Julian and Seth giggling boisterously in the yard, but I couldn't see why until I turned the corner.  It had been so hot, that after some of the heat of the day burned off, Seth took Julian outside in his little swim trunks and gave him the hose with the sprayer.  Julian had a great time spraying water everywhere and it did not, apparently, take him long to discover that if he pointed the spray at Abba, Abba ran away.  Apparently, however, he also found out that if he directed the spray at himself, he got wet.  Which scared him, so he dropped the hose and ran away.  That is, until he remembered that he LIKES water.  Below there's a picture of Julian spraying ME as I was trying to take his picture.



Such a cutie, no?  Of course, I then had to go to Toys 'R Us and buy him an inflatable pool, sprinkler and a giant beach ball.  Hooray!  We haven't inflated the pool yet, but he loves the sprinkler and the beach ball. 

I have, of course, updated my picture pages with pictures of all the fun!

You have to get him "Swimmies" - the diapers that don't get all bloated in the pool! (I see regular white diapers sticking out of his bathing suit - the swimmies are colored)

My kids spent all afternoon Sunday in the baby pool on the deck - my 19 month old was scared to go in the water. She liked her bathing suit though, she kept pointing at it and saying "preeetty" - Such a girl!!!

yeah, we have swimming diapers. Remember that I wasn't home when all this took place so my husband was in charge. Heh. It wasn't the end of the world, one wasted diaper was well worth all the fun Julian had.

Julian LOVES LOVES LOVES water. He "swims" in the bath... he gets down and blows bubbles and kicks his feet. It's pretty funny.

Men. Heh.

She loves the bath - I think she just got nervous since the water was so cold. Next time I need to fill it up earlier and give the water a chance to get a little warmer before I out her in.

Oooh! Can Grace and I come over sometime to play in the sprinkler? (Or simply with the hose?)

of course. AFTER you're not an invalid anymore.

So cute!
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: June 9th, 2005 08:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks!

Though, now that I think about it, I wonder why I'm thanking you. I have nothing to do with his cuteness! But yeah, he's a cutie!

Looks like such fun! What is the cool-looking frog thingie in the next to last pictures?
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: June 9th, 2005 07:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
You are definitely frog-obsessed! :)

The frog thing you were seeing is the lid of a trash can. I have a frog-shaped trash can that I keep some of Julian's mega-blocks in.

It's hard to sneak frog things by me. That's neat. I like the panda, too.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: June 9th, 2005 08:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
no kidding. I like the panda too. And the pig. but mostly, I like the frog.

I was in Toys R Us yesterday and spied the sandboxes. Do you still want to get Julian one?
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: June 9th, 2005 09:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
yeah, I do. But I think I have to pass on the crab and get the turtle. :(
leahmiriam From: leahmiriam Date: June 9th, 2005 09:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
Chicken! The turtle is very cute and they go better with frogs than crabs would.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: June 9th, 2005 09:51 pm (UTC) (Link)
yeah. I am chicken. I see nothing wrong with a plastic crab either, you know. I just am a big chicken. Anyway, I have to drag my ass down there to get the blasted thing, but first I have to figure out whether it will fit in my car. Hah!
leahmiriam From: leahmiriam Date: June 9th, 2005 09:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think I am going to buy the pig just to freak all the frummies out.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: June 9th, 2005 09:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
remember I almost did that?
leahmiriam From: leahmiriam Date: June 9th, 2005 09:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes you did. I find nothing wrong with plastic pigs, they are really hard to eat :)
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: June 9th, 2005 09:51 pm (UTC) (Link)
I agree
