so this weekend was pretty great. apollo & steven gave me birthday presents on saturday so i could enjoy them all weekend long. on saturday steven and i had our third date since apollo was born. we went to blackbird kitchen for a night of good food and drinks, while apollo went to the fair with a couple we know that lives down the street. he was so excited and exhausted after the fair. he was running around on the bed, then tripped on my hips and fell. while he was down, he decided to fall asleep (see above photo).

for the 23rd annual celebration of my birth i made a white velvet cake with a coffee buttercream. yummy yummy. and below are photos for your pleasure. a very merry birthday to me.

like father like son.

today we found apollo to be more like his father than we previously thought. i used to think apollo only picked up steven's farting habits, snoring, and sleeping style. well after about 10 minutes of going to the park today, apollo got overheated. after much sand, sweat, and tears we ditched the park and got some popsicles. 

apollo has also found a love for blueberries. he gets that from me.

summer in montana

i'm so glad its summer! its a little after 3:00 and 77 degrees. the sun is shining, there's a slight breeze, ahh what a day. updates for us:

steven: steven's doing good. he still works in the early morning until noonish, bikes home and then spends the afternoon with apollo. right now he's making red pepper and leek soup for me, yummy! my favorite.

apollo: apollo is also doing well. he is going through a growth spurt right now, which means he is a little fussy and has random days where he sleeps and sleeps. of course, all this sleeping during the day has him up at night, which sucks for us, but we're getting it figured out. also, apollo is sleeping in his crib at night now. yes!!

kalina: i'm doing great. i don't hate work yet, which is sweet. i bike to work every once in a while, and i can't wait until apollo is done nursing so i can bike everyday.

the family: we got a kid carrier for our hikes. steven and i like it, and best of all-apollo likes it. every thursday we go downtown to "music on main." bozeman closes main street to have vendors and live music every thursday evening. it is a lot of fun. apollo loves all the dogs and people. and MAN ARE THERE PEOPLE. it reminds me of living in chicago, there's so much going on. and last saturday we got to see "shakespeare in the park." apollo did really well, and it was quite enjoyable. who knew you could get not only mountains but culture in montana??? amazing.
