31 days ago Buzz took his first unaided steps. It took him a couple more days to figure out how to just stand still, and eventually he started squatting down to pick things up from the floor. This morning I noticed that he finally figured out how to get up to standing position directly from the floor - no need to crawl over to a chair or wall to pull himself up!
Today we went out on a couple of outings - first to town to drop off a check at the accountant's office, then we wandered around town just to enjoy the fresh air. Later in the afternoon we went to the grocery store with Doda Sara to pick up some last minute items for Shabbos.
We've decided to have a waffle brunch on Shabbos morning. We'll just heat up waffles on the plata and enjoy them with maple syrup, ice cream, quiche, and at least 2 mimosas apiece. I deserve it - since I've been doing some pilates and my muscles are crying for the much welcome 'weekend break'.
Good thing about working out - it really gets me pumped for the day. Plus it means that I don't spend all day in my pajamas (trust me, this is a good thing.)
I haven't started cooking for Shabbos yet and I have a lot to do. Food, dessert, and a 'surprise' birthday cake to drop off down the hill sometime before Shabbos starts (good thing I have a long day.)

On Friday morning we collected a few moving boxes. Then we spent another awesome last-minute 30 hour weekend in The Sun House.
What else has happened so far this week? Grocery shopping at Yesh made me thankful that we're moving. I started doing some pilates to get my 'core' back in shape - 2 days in and my abs are decidedly not in favor of doing any sort of routine - but that's just too bad. We started clearing out the mamad in an effort to reorganize and make room for the boxes that are already packed. I made ridiculously delicious tomato sauce that is incredible as a dip for fries, and I baked a recipe of almond flour chocolate chip cookies to fill my inane cookie cravings and noshiness. Did I mention the awesome pizza monkey bread that I made for lunch, or the roasted turkey wing that Z enjoyed for dinner served with tiny potatoes?
Now if only I could figure out my Shabbos menu...It's going to be a quiet weekend at home which I'm looking forward to.
Today The Freddies stopped by to raid Buzz's long sleeved onesies for their annual trip to SwissCheeseLand. It was fun to see them, and the kiddos played together adorably!
Tomorrow Buzz and I have to run some errands in town. It should be fun. Then some cooking, and maybe some packing too.
No need to do laundry though - since Buzz did the laundry today - he's such a big helper! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0GAGZ8g1Mg See? Isn't he cute?! He sweeps the floors too.

Let's see recap of last week -
Wednesday was crazy and hectic and we spent most of the day in the car. We did enjoy an amazingly delicious bbq dinner in The Sun House with the fambily.
Thursday morning Buzz and I hung out. I picked up my iherb package from the post office (yay affordable vitamins!) In the mid-afternoon Z showed up with the guys. Pasta primavera and 3 versions of 'peasant bread' (plain, evoo herbed, & cornmeal) made a delicious lunch. Then Settlers until 8pm.
Friday was a lazy lazy day. I took most of the Shabbos food out of the freezer so I took it easy all morning. I only really started getting stuff done at around two in the afternoon.
Shabbos was very long but also very relaxing.
On Friday night Buzz fell asleep on the living room floor in his 'naptime spot' and we opted to just leave him there rather than risk waking him. Saturday night 10:30pm came and still the child would not sleep. We gave up on the crib, brought him into our bed, and he still resisted the sandman for another half hour. It was exhausting.
Z spent this morning working in the workshop for studio. Buzz's Israeli passport arrived in the mail, I negotiated better deals with some of our service providers, finally did the laundry from last week, and came up with a tentative menu for shabbos.
Tomorrow hopefully I'll get my act together and cook all of the freezable parts of the meals so that Friday can be relaxing again.

Look at me! Posting 2 days in a row! How awesome is that?
And a longer video (from before he 'found his groove'). At least now I understand why they call them 'Toddler's.
