Duck, Duck, Goose!
On Sunday Hank and I went up to my parents. I had not been there for a while and I thought they would like to see Hank in his Halloween costume. We had some yummy beef stew for supper (such a good Fall meal). I got a cute photo of Hank playing Mom's piano in his Lion outfit, but it's on Mom's camera (will have to get a copy of that). On our way up to my parents we stopped at Bynum Run and fed the Ducks and Geese. Hank has been saying Duck now, so I thought he would enjoy the stop. As soon as we pulled in the parking lot and I opened the door he heard the Ducks and got excited. He also says Banana now, and knows and can point to most body parts. He has also started giving us kisses when we ask him to.
He is now weaned off of the breast, since last week. He has been drinking cow's milk since he turned a year old, as well as some formula that we still have left. Thankfully we only had to supplement a little bit with the formula, and we did not have to buy any - it was all the freebies that the formula companies sent.
Speaking of formula I took Hank to a "casting call" yesterday for a Similac Ad campaign. It was held at the studio where Hank had his photos when he was two weeks old. The photographer had it advertised on her blog. Hank was baby #94. Apparently they are looking for a few babies at various stages. I thought what the heck - it's worth a shot, plus it gave me an excuse to leave work early:-)
P.S. - The "towel" Hank is holding is what I call his "Taggie." He likes to hold blankets or towels that have silk tags on them, so he can rub the tags - it's very soothing to him, and he has done this since he was a tiny baby.
