I can already hear the other parents reading this blog right now saying "OK Don, so you're not going to have a picky eater, yeah right!" And yes, that's my goal, but I am aware that Mommy and some other adults (whom I won't name) can shy away from some foods, and I just hope that Thomas is like his Daddy when it comes to trying foods (either courageous or highly indifferent, not sure which), but only time will tell how Thomas' eating habits will develop.

Check out some pictures from Saturday when the whole family got together over at Auntie Leia and Uncle Steve's house. We went over in the morning for breakfast and didn't leave until after dinner. As you can see from the pictures we did a lot of eating and swimming and playing with babies! I'll have to admit that playing with your own baby is fun, but playing with 3 or 4 at a time is even funner!
Saturday was such a fun family day, and we enjoyed every minute. Sunday has turned into a day of recovery where we are all just catching our breathe and relaxing. Laura and Ernesto came over to the house to hang out and play some Wii with Jenn and Thomas.
Also we took this video of Thomas Sunday morning as Jenn wanted to catch Thomas doing a little crawling. We are impressed that he's finally figuring out how to crawl forward instead of just backwards, but it's still pretty basic, but we'll have him practicing more and more and see how fast he can get.

As you can clearly see from this video, Thomas is figuring out his crawling abilities. He hasn't figured out the full-on baby crawl yet, but he's almost there. Because Thomas is becoming more and more mobile, Jenn and I are trying to enjoy his immobility as much as possible, because as all parents have told us, "Once they start moving, they don't stop."
Also in this video you should have been able to hear some of Thomas' talking. I'm not sure why babies scream or screech, but I'm just reassured when I see other babies doing the same (thanks Anna). Jenn and I usually joke that Thomas is practicing his pterodactyl talk (that's right, I used and spelled the word pterodactyl), which we truly hope will come in handy if the world is invaded with pterodactyls.

Here is Thomas sitting in a high-chair (with some help from the diaper bag).
While waiting in line for tickets, Gabriel makes Thomas smile by giving him tickles.
Gabriel loved this catapult game, he kept playing it over and over and over.
Jenn takes a photo with a Lego Dragon, scary.
These next few are of Jenn and Leia preparing and then jousting.. pretty intense!
This was a shadow game where little pebbles would fall onto your shadow...
It was all much funnier while we took the pictures.
Me and Gabriel throw sponge balls up a nose... and then the nose sneezes and shoots them back out.
