This is a great metaphor for how my day is starting. I knew that Beck was way too quiet while I was getting Aubrey's breakfast ready...and he was, he managed to break into the cheerio container that I keep in the diaper bag. And of course because I got the camera out Aubrey had to get in on some Cheese!!
Daddy is home!!!! YEAH!! Brad got home on Thursday afternoon and we had a really nice date (Thanks Aunt Carol for babysitting). But Friday Brad went to work and ended up having to work until 8am on Saturday morning. So now Brad has caught up on his sleep and the kids are thrilled that Daddy is home, as am I. Brad did baths last night, thank goodness. Aubrey really misses her Daddy when he is out of town.
We had a great Mother's day even though Brad was out of town. The kids & I went down to San Antonio to see The Great and my Aunt Carol treated us all to a wonderful Mother's Day brunch. Thanks Aunt Carol it was wonderful. Beck really enjoyed the bread with butter & the strawberries.
Sorry I haven't blogged this week I spent Monday night in the ER because I thought I had a appendicitis but I just have a bladder infection and a stomach bug. And Brad was out of town until yesterday afternoon. So thanks Carol, Brian, Soriya & Aimee for your help with me and the kiddos on Monday & Tuesday...You guys saved me!!
Beck decided that the pool water was too cold and he was cranky & sleepy. So he took a nap in the shade while we played in the pool.
What cute girls and good friends!! It was in the high 90's here today so we went to the pool today after Beck's doctors appointment with our friends Aimee & Grace. The girls had so much fun!! Both of them were jumping from the edge of the pool into Aimee & my arms. At one point I was holding Beck and the girls were taking turns jumping to Aimee and they forgot to take turns and both jumped into her arms and both went under the water. They weren't upset at all.
I can't believe it!!! My baby is 9 months old!!! Where did the last 2 1/2 years of my life go? It has flown by. We went to Beck's 9 mth. well baby visit today and he is 28 1/2 inches long (50% percentile), his head is 45 1/2 (50% percentile) and he weighs 16 pounds 11 ounces (5% percentile). That's right the 5%!! He is one tall skinny boy, he is following a curve on his growth chart and the doctor is not worried. She just said when I give him table foods to give him extra gravy butter and etc. meaning extra calories. Everything that I don't need.
Here's the kids playing this evening. They are pretty happy. Brad left town again yesterday for a week. Ugh!! The life of a single mom!!
Tonight Beck had Savory Carrots & Potates with Beef, he loved it. We have moved on to the Stage 3 foods that are chunkier and getting him ready for chewing. He had gotten bored with the pureed baby foods. And for dessert he had a few bites of prunes. And of course Cherrios, Beck's favorite. The 3rd pic is one of him getting the Cheerio in his mouth. What a MESSY BOY!!
So I was just here on the computer and I hear Beck choking on something (normal occurance at our house, everything goes in the mouth). Aubrey is eating her breakfast of waffles & strawberries at the kitchen table. So I go investigate the choking and Beck is sitting on the floor by Aubrey covered in waffle pieces. I guess Aubrey gave him part of a waffle and he tried to woof it down. Nummy!!
I have told her again for like the 12th time that Mommy & Daddy are the only ones that can feed Beck right now.
I guess that theses photos don't need much of an explanation...Beck is my Wiggleworm!! He is a very tall, skinny & active almost 9 month old (on Friday). He loves the stairs, he started standing at the first step and in just a matter of days he was climbing the stairs. He has gotten to the 5th or 6th stair before I have caught him. And now I have to prop the ottoman between the big chair and the stair railing to keep him off the stairs. And if I go up stairs and especially if Aubrey goes with me he screams bloodt murder at the ottoman.
And Beck has decided that he loves his Binky. I had given it to him a week or so ago to soothe him when he was teething. He would chew on the hard plastic part of the handle part but now he has decided that he loves it and wants it all the time. I am going to let him have until he is 12-18 months old or so and then we will get rid of it. At least he isn't sucking his thumb like Aubrey...I think that I am going to have to cut her thumb off to get her to stop sucking her thumb.
