Coney Island Baby

Thanksgiving was good, we spent it out on Long Island with my family at my brother's house. We hope that your holiday was spent among loved ones eating until you were uncomfortably full.

I'm happy to report that we spent black Friday not shopping. And today we took advantage of this unseasonably warm afternoon by going to the Aquarium at Coney Island. Gibson loved it. He was very excited to see all of the big fish. It's amazing to watch him experience new things. I always feel like the luckiest person when I get to see him giggle and smile.

Playground

Gibson has been showing more and more signs of his growing independence. For instance, while at the park this afternoon he really wanted to sit on this bench but couldn't get onto it himself, so he gestured and motioned for my help up. Then he clearly wanted me to go away and proudly sat and kicked and smiled and babbled to me. It's really wonderful to see. And, I won't lie, a bit exhausting.
