Do you find the photo above slightly ironic? I love it. It was definitely my 'photo of the week' for last week. But it's a whole new week now so I've got to start over.

31 days ago Buzz took his first unaided steps. It took him a couple more days to figure out how to just stand still, and eventually he started squatting down to pick things up from the floor. This morning I noticed that he finally figured out how to get up to standing position directly from the floor - no need to crawl over to a chair or wall to pull himself up!
Today we went out on a couple of outings - first to town to drop off a check at the accountant's office, then we wandered around town just to enjoy the fresh air. Later in the afternoon we went to the grocery store with Doda Sara to pick up some last minute items for Shabbos.
We've decided to have a waffle brunch on Shabbos morning. We'll just heat up waffles on the plata and enjoy them with maple syrup, ice cream, quiche, and at least 2 mimosas apiece. I deserve it - since I've been doing some pilates and my muscles are crying for the much welcome 'weekend break'.
Good thing about working out - it really gets me pumped for the day. Plus it means that I don't spend all day in my pajamas (trust me, this is a good thing.)
I haven't started cooking for Shabbos yet and I have a lot to do. Food, dessert, and a 'surprise' birthday cake to drop off down the hill sometime before Shabbos starts (good thing I have a long day.)

On Friday morning we collected a few moving boxes. Then we spent another awesome last-minute 30 hour weekend in The Sun House.
What else has happened so far this week? Grocery shopping at Yesh made me thankful that we're moving. I started doing some pilates to get my 'core' back in shape - 2 days in and my abs are decidedly not in favor of doing any sort of routine - but that's just too bad. We started clearing out the mamad in an effort to reorganize and make room for the boxes that are already packed. I made ridiculously delicious tomato sauce that is incredible as a dip for fries, and I baked a recipe of almond flour chocolate chip cookies to fill my inane cookie cravings and noshiness. Did I mention the awesome pizza monkey bread that I made for lunch, or the roasted turkey wing that Z enjoyed for dinner served with tiny potatoes?
Now if only I could figure out my Shabbos menu...It's going to be a quiet weekend at home which I'm looking forward to.
Today The Freddies stopped by to raid Buzz's long sleeved onesies for their annual trip to SwissCheeseLand. It was fun to see them, and the kiddos played together adorably!
Tomorrow Buzz and I have to run some errands in town. It should be fun. Then some cooking, and maybe some packing too.
No need to do laundry though - since Buzz did the laundry today - he's such a big helper! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0GAGZ8g1Mg See? Isn't he cute?! He sweeps the floors too.
