The Park, Cranky Pants & Hip Mamas

This past weekend since the weather had eased up a bit from it’s hell like temps, we decided to go to the park with none other than or little pip squeak Parker and our little boo hound Lizzie.  Parker has been a late teeth bloomer (which I never complained about since teething is breastfeeding’s worst nightmare).  He recently pushed through his top tooth, and is working on his second.  The following pics captures his mood at the park quite clearly.

…in a dignified Russian accent he says…

"Do you want to mess with ME?"

"I will CRUSH you"

"...and then I will EAT you"

"Mwahahahaha...just kidding"

We had a nice time, but he definitely had his “get me out of here and give me something to chew on” attitude at certain points of the day. Poor kid. I’m sure it really hurts.
A few weeks ago I was introduced to a playgroup called “Hip Mamas, Happy Babies” by a Mom I met on the March ’11 Babycenter.com board (I know, I’m an internet junkie, don’t remind me…). Anywho, she has relocated here from FL and joined this group and told me about it. I’m going to my first meetup tomorrow, but I’m already impressed at how many awesome events  fill up the calendar each week. The group is for Mom’s who have babies that were born between July of ’09 and July of ’10. I think this is a great idea because once all the babies get past one, most kids will be on similar nap schedules and be similar ages. There are also a handful of Moms that are expecting number 2 that is in the group, so it’ll be nice to meet them as well. In a few weeks there will be a cloth diapering meetup/playdate where I will meet other Moms in the area that cloth diaper (or at least would like to know more about it). I’m excited about that because I don’t know anyone who cloth diapers. Yay!
