Today was a great day! We started off our day by going shopping (who doesn't like go to shopping???) for some things for Gus.
Trying to grab the sheet metal
We headed to Lowe's and got two sheets of sheet metal that Steve's going to build our magnet boards from, and then I went to Michael's while Steve went to PetCo. I got Gus some AWESOME stuff that I saw on one of my new favorite blogs: In Lieu of Preschool. Here's what I got:
A lap-desk that he can use when he's just a little bit older- I TOTALLY copied the idea of personalizing it from her!
I decorated everything with his name
This is the other side
You can't tell by the picture, but this is rather large, and will be used to hold books
Two supply cases that we can use with his board
For his Tot Packs and Preschool Packs that I'll be printing and laminating
Felt for the felt board that Steve's going to make me tomorrow!
On the way home from Crossroads, we had to stop at Wal-Mart... I was in the backseat with Gus and he was soooooo tired. He fell asleep with his hand in his snack container and it cracked me up!
We got home and had lunch, and then I needed to take Gus's 13 month pictures before his nap. Steve had the noise maker from Kaitlyn's party and it TOTALLY made him laugh and made it so easy to get some GREAT pictures of him for today's special pictures!!
You can kinda see his two teeth in this one!
You can see the teeth in this if you click the picture
Gus went down for his nap and I edited and resized his pictures. He didn't want to sleep so we played for about two hours before he finally went down for about an hour and a half. Steve also took a nap during this time.
Once Gus got up, we headed to Apex for dinner at LongHorn Steakhouse. It was soooooo good. I told Steve, it might be right up there with Outback as my favorite place to go for dinner. They have the best salads and their filets are always so delicious! Gus ate like a champ and drank almost 10 ounces of milk tonight (yay Gus!)!!
On the way home, we stopped at Sonic for cream pie shakes that were yummy!! We put Gus to bed and then went outside to sit and watch the rain come in...
Well, we sat and sat and sat... and the rain never came. We decided to head inside and then wouldn't you know it... it poured!!!
So I mentioned this in a caption for a picture, but Gus now has two teeny-tiny baby teeth on the bottom! The first one came on the 8th and then the second one made its appearance today!
Tomorrow Steve is going to work on the magnet boards and felt board and we're going to celebrate "No Rules Saturday" on Sunday since we didn't celebrate it today.
See you tomorrow! Be sure to check out Gus's blog to see his 13 month post!
