An apology to loyal readers: the Parakeet has not posted in a while because she is working a lot – at home, at other jobs, and just in general. She has been trying to be super efficient with her time and lots of days, the old blog falls off the list.
But – here she is – overdue and probably not super inspired, but updating nonetheless.
Near the middle of August, the Parakeet’s parents came to Chi town for a visit. It was soooo much fun. While they were here, they celebrated Little O’s day with a party!! All of his babysitters from the past year were invited. O had a great time – he opened presents, had his first cupcake and got to talk with the guys over burgers about the Cubs.
Some say they are setting their son up for a life of disappointment, but the Keet and Huz felt like Cubs talk was just getting him used to teh neighborhood.
Did he like his cupcake? Well, it was covered in delicious blue frosting which he LOVED and smeared everywhere. The next morning, he saw one on the dining room table with his GB (Grandma Betty). He immediately pointed at it and “ooo, Ooo”ed until he got a bite.
So, perhaps, he is officially onto sweets.
He also got a few toy cars that propel forward after being “revved” up. Those cars were the hit of the day regressing all thirty-somethings in the backyard at least twenty years. Soon the ‘boys’ were building ramps out of Little O’s new books to jump the cars over. Lots of fun was had by all – and finally the Keet and Huz had a BBQ on a sunny day. Gratitude all around.
Some fun from the big day:
