Henry practices catching snowflakes on his tongue during a walk home.
In case anyone was worried, yesterday’s post was definitely an April Fool’s Day joke. Mark and I thought it would be funny to show this little guy crossing a big intersection (an intersection with high traffic in Manhattan). Judging from the lack of comments, we are pretty certain family and friends may have been afraid they were being too judgmental if they said anything. We definitely don’t let Henry cross busy intersections alone…yet. Hopefully we fooled a few people, just for fun.
Below is the photo we used to play the prank. Notice, I am close behind.
Henry spent the first day of fall playing with his toys in the apartment, watching football with his dad, visiting playgrounds, practicing walking, eating his mom’s pumpkin bread and watching television with friends.
Maryellen usually has a small party for daycare attendees who are celebrating a birthday. Since Henry was not at daycare for his actual birthday, she had balloons and a candle for him today. I went to join and take some pictures. I was glad I was there because I was able to see him take the most steps he has yet and get it on camera for Mark too. Henry was definitely in his element as he showed off for the crowd gathered around to sing him Happy Birthday (his final Happy Birthday this year).
