Day 159

Simon woke up at 7am this morning and I decided to get him and put him into bed with us. He basically relaxed and stayed calm for an hour before he got cranky and wanted to get up to play. Oh well, at least one more hour of rest for me.

Check out his shoes. Thank you to Karla, Brandon, and Miles! They are super cute but Simon’s feet are a bit chubby so were hard to put all the way on. They are pretty ingenious though with the placement of velcro to open the shoe and a cool design. I had to put the shoe on Simon’s foot then make him stand up in order to get his heel to go all the way in. I think it was hard to put on because of Simon’s chubby feet or else he is also still curling his toes.

We spent the morning and afternoon at home. Simon got his first taste of some apple blueberry puree mixed with rice cereal. He made a bit of a pucker-face when he first tasted it and seems confused by the color.

But he still finished his little bowl with little spillage but all around his mouth. He hasn’t figured out how to use his tongue yet.

Simon grinning at us while we are having lunch. He looks a bit mischievous here.

We went out for a walk downtown and when we got back, Simon was itching to get out of the carrier. I set him on the sofa briefly against two pillows and he tilted forward. Just goes to show that babies move fast. Don’t worry, he didn’t fall or anything, just tipped over slowly.

A late afternoon snack of the seasonal blueberry macaron from Bouchon. To the right is a quarter to show the size. The outer cookie was very light on the outside and the inside had creme but some sort of fruit jelly piece. It was yummy.

In the evening, we went to dinner with Virginia and Dan to Tacolicious. Virginia had bought some Groupon-like coupons so we went to try their food and redeem them.

Here are their hot sauces for the tacos, top to bottom: tomatillo, fire roasted, and habanero.

Their “pasion” cocktail. I ordered it because it had passion fruit in it and although it is pretty, it didn’t taste that good. I couldn’t taste the passion fruit at all, just a bit sweet.

Simon had fallen asleep in the car so slept through about half of the dinner.

The plantain appetizer. Very sweet and interesting sauce.

We ordered 10 tacos for $29 plus 2 extra beef tongue tacos (their special for the day) and 2 orders of corn.

Starting from the top left to right: short ribs, carnitas, chicken. Bottom left to right: beef tongue, chorizo, and fish. Our favs were the carnitas and beef tongue.

The corn. It had a bit of tang to it but was itself very sweet.

A pretty good dinner overall. Thank you Virginia for inviting us along! Tacolicious apparently serves lunch at the Ferry Building on Thursdays. That would be more convenient than heading to the Marina but not sure when I’ll get a Thursday afternoon off.

When we got home, we gave Simon another apple-blueberry + rice cereal mixture before giving him a bath and putting him to sleep. Hopefully he’ll have a good night’s rest.
