So let's see, during Ander's second month of life we made it back to church! We are thrilled with our new ward and look forward to getting to know the members. It certainly helps that our good friends Taylor and Thomas are already in the ward! Automatic friends, for the win.
We took the opportunity to have my parents babysit while we attended a session at the Gilbert temple and it was spectacular. I hadn't thought about accommodating my new mom-bod until the night before but luckily the Deseret Book right across the freeway had a beautiful (and stretchy) dress in my size so we were golden! Grandma and Grandpa had been implicit in their desires for us to take our sweet time so as to give them more time with the Bud, so we went to lunch at Mod Pizza afterwards and stuffed ourselves silly with delicious pizzas and homemade lemonade. Seriously, it's amazing. I live literally five miles away from the Mesa temple now but I will make the trip down to Gilbert every time if it means we get to have Mod Pizza after.
Bug-a-boo has grown to love bathtime. It calms him right down and certainly seems to help him get prepared for bedtime.
As for our furbabes, they couldn't be more pleased with the backyard setup. Well, that's a lie. Shade could definitely be more abundant, but the size is definitely a far cry from the maybe ten square feet they had back at the apartment.
Seeing my buddy grow more and more into the little person he's to become has been such a treat. The random stranger in the Walgreen's parking lot said it perfectly when he noted that Andy has quite the stern demeanor:
"But when he does smile, you know you've earned it."
