April 27 – May 3, 2011
Simon enjoyed the wind in his face.
We had dinner in SF Japantown at Izumiya. Tofu soba.
Simon showed us he learned how to shake his head up and down. Now he can answer “yes!”
Irene, one of our nurses at work, gave Simon this toy that used to belong to her grandson. She said she thought of Simon when she saw it sitting in the back of her coat closet so she wanted him to have it. He’s not quite sure what to make of it yet but was excited to see its head pop out of the bag that it was in.
He decided to wake up but took a while to warm up. He clung on me like a little monkey until I got him to play in the bounce house. He was very excited and happy about going on the slide but I got very tired of carrying him up the “stairs” to the top of the slide. The other kids jumping around were older so I was afraid Simon would get hurt if I let him by himself but I think overall he had a good time and had a good nap on the drive home.

It was such a nice day that we got out of the house and ended up at the Yerba Buena Carousel. We didn’t have time to ride it during Simon’s birthday party so went to see if he was interested in it this time around. He was really excited watching it while waiting for our turn.
So we went to the playground and Ron took Simon on the slide a few times. He really liked that and enjoyed walking around the playground. Lots of older kids were running around too though and not watching where they were going so Simon almost got knocked over. Next time we’ll go when it’s less busy.
