Au revoir papa...

Jack and I have sad faces today after saying farewell Keith once again. This time should be five weeks or so, hopefully he'll be home just in time for Jack's first b-day. Other than getting back into our "Mom and Jack" routine, not much is going on here. Keith had a good first Father's Day, he was kind enough to share his day with some guys from the ship that needed some home cooking. I made 40 clove garlic chicken and we had tiramisu for dessert, mmm, delicious. My little rugrat is out of control now that he's crawling. He is grabbing onto everything to stand up and when he does he takes steps to get to the next object. I thought it would take him some time to figure out how to get up the steps but he's already got it down. We had to put a baby gate in the kitchen since it's almost impossible to baby proof and thankfully there is a door in the living room so Jack has a safe place to wander to his hearts content. Speaking of rugrats...Jack is done letting me update...here are some new photos of my little man on the move.

...the determination tongue, "I will stand up on everything in this room!"

Here Ye Here Ye!!! Read All About It!

We've been a busy Webber family lately getting reconnected with Keith, settling back into life at home and Jack's ever changing growth and development. I have been busy busy busy with school hard at work in a History of Graphic Design class that has an immense workload. Each week we have to develop designs relating to the period of history we are studying. Here are my last two weeks of work:
A poster

A magazine cover

Along with the designs themselves we have to create professional presentations that would simulate how we would present our concept development to the client. I am so thankful Keith has been home to help watch Jack so I can get the work done.

I had a fabulous 32nd birthday on Saturday. My boys took me out to dinner at a steak house that serves Shabu Shabu (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shabu-shabu)..very yummy. With open flames and a hot cooking stone on the table we were sure that Jack was going to be ultra curious. But of course...he was an angel and even had his fair share of rice and miso soup. At this point, we are trying everything. His complete rejection of everything "baby food" has lead us to try the mama bird method with everything on our plates. He seems to enjoy Japanese food, lemon flavor and mint chocolate chip ice cream the most...go figure.

Keith is hard at work each day getting the ship repaired and ready to go back to sea. Last week they made repairs to the sonar dome. I cannot explain it but I can show you some pictures...

Jack is also crawling now...video is on its way...so he is invariably dirty. He gets into everything from the cat food to power cords. Now Jack has a better daily routine including a shower with mom or dad everyday. We are both glad we started him in the shower as an infant because now he has no problem with water running over his head. Here's the latest shot of Jack enjoying his shower...

Most of all we are happy to be home and together again. For now it's back to work!
