roll over

So Porter rolled over yesterday afternoon for the first time. The sad thing is that I did not get to see it. I was at a friends house and I was sitting on the ground next to him and when I looked away he rolled onto him stomach. My baby is all grow up. Porter has a new sound. I first heard it a couple of days ago but last night at the child development class he would not stop. It is a mixture of gurgling and a high pitch shrill. It is so funny I can't help but laugh when he does it. At first I was not sure if he was mad when he did it but it seem like he has just discovered a new sound and likes to make it. Today it was raining and I was just going to stay in but I had to go to Target. Sometimes they have great deals on children's clothing and today I bought Porter a jacket for $2.50. Anyway when I got home I was missing an item so I had to go back. I was annoyed at the whole situation and felt bad that Porter had to be in the car for so long. He just sits in the car seat and looks bored but he is over the screaming so it is not that bad. Tomorrow is craft day at play group and infant massage.

A busy Porter

Porter has been so busy it is hard to keep track of everything he does. He has two play groups, infant massage class, free museum Tuesdays and story time at the Library. This is all for Porter and I just have to go along as is escort :) I am glad that I have found so many things to do and I am not just sitting in the house all day. I was afraid that I might do that before he was born but it has been so easy to meet other moms and find things to do. Our Thursday play group is for parents that are into attachment parenting and our Friday play group is with moms that I met at infant massage class. We are going to Balboa park today to the free museums with some other moms from the play group. I think we are going to have a little picnic afterwards. This afternoon I am going to go with another mom to a child development class at a local community college so they can observe Porter and ask us questions. It should be interesting and hopefully I will learn something from them as well.

Porter does not know about the weekend. He has his routine and he is going to stick to it no matter what. I want to sleep in but Porter is wide awake ready to start his day at 7:30AM. I am tired but at least he spent most of the night in his own bed. I went shopping with my friends yesterday and I bought a new pair of shoes. When I was pregnant most of my shoes did not fit an now most of them do but I still needed a new pair of converse. We saw Jason at the mall and he bought me a new ipod. I love it! I am so excited to have my own so I do not have to listen to the radio anymore. I am going to meet some friends in the park for lunch later and Jason went in to the office to work.

My yoga teacher is teaching the infant massage class now. We went on Thursday and I really liked it a lot. Porter was more into standing up watching everyone else than actually getting a massage. That is what he wants to do most of the time but I am hoping one day he will let me do a full massage. Liliana and Paulina are going to go with me to the new play group. I think it will be fun! Hopefully Rebecca and Audio will start going as well. We need more boys! Right now I think there about 6 or 7 girls and two boys. This afternoon Jaime and I are going to go to the yarn shop in PB. I am going to teach her how to knit. I got a new pattern so I want to buy some yarn and start it.
