We visited the Tribeca Film Festival‘s neighborhood street fair today as well as several playgrounds which allowed Henry to try a variety of activities like trying to catch one very elusive pigeon.

I was happy to return to my family on Thursday night. After two nights away, I was ready to hug my baby. It was good for Henry and dad to have some one-on-one time though. Henry is at an extreme Mommy stage and I was happy he could learn to be without me for a few days. Of course, watching videos of Henry from afar made me realize how all viewers of our site must feel. After seeing him on the computer, I just wanted to hold him and hug him even more.
I don’t have pictures, but Henry has improved in swimming, to the point that I think he actually enjoys it now. Yesterday, he floated by himself and I put him under water several times more than I had previously. He was also trying to kick and splash. It helped that he didn’t have a toy in his hand (a little duck from the pool toys) to divert his attention. He really focused on the swimming.
The night I got home at 12:30am, Henry heard my voice and woke up right away. Although I was exhausted, I was secretly happy he woke up so I could hug my Henry.
I took Henry to the park Friday evening. I was surprised how excited he was to just sit and watch people (and pigeons). I guess even babies get spring fever.
After swimming and going to the park, Henry goes down for the night. He sleeps on his stomach more often now.
