Sorry Such-a Slacker
I need to get better at blogging. I was reading through my college blog today, and I love how I wrote everyday (almost) about what I did, how I was feeling, and whatnot. I'm going to try to get better!!
Carter is sick. Fever with no other symptoms... poor kiddo. I hope its just teething or something. Hopefully he'll be better by tomorrow. Parker still continues to trample him. It's some sort of game to him. He walks to the same spot, turns around and says "ready set go" or "one two three" or a mixture of the two "ready set one two GO!" and runs over to (and over) Carter. Carter is such a trooper. He's such a joy.
Parker is sad that our DVD player is broken. We might go "shopping" for datenight to get a new one... although I just want to wait until we get a flatscreen with dvd built in. Less clutter= happy momma.
I made babyfood today... green beans and carrots. Squash is done. I only have sweet potato and peas left before I start trying the fruits- I have apples and blueberries that I'm going to make up. Pears and peaches will soon follow. I think I'm going to try advacado with Carter- I didn't with Parker. The yobaby starts soon! :)
If anyone wants/needs help making baby food- let me know! :) It's SO easy!!
House Update: Everything is going smoothly so far!! Our tenative closing date is Oct 6. I'm super excited and incredibly nervous all at the same time. As if we didn't have enough on our plate- we offered to host Thanksgiving! :) It should be interesting to say the least.
My baby boy turns 2 in exactly one month. Where has the time gone?!?! He's learning more and more everyday. Almost every day I discover a new word he can say. :) So far his favorites are mama, dada, grandpa, papa, baby, tarter (carter), ut oh, circle, star, dog, boat, car, it's stuck, byebye, outside, socks, shoes, hat, hot, ball, bird, rock, it's me, no, mine, i did it, don't cry, gentle, sid, arthur... I'm sure there's more that I can't think of.
He recognizes things and gets excited and points and says the word! =]
He can draw a circle. He can point out "S" on anything. He's getting better at recognizing e, r, and a. He calls the letter O a circle! :)
I have been rediculed for teaching him sign sometimes but I honestly have to admit (aside from making my own babyfood and cloth diapering) its the BEST decision I've made for him. So, maybe he's a "late talker" but at least we could communicate before he started talking. That is the whole point of baby signing.
Since I updated about Parker, I'll give a quick update on Carter... he's eating soilds, so far just squash next is green beans. He insists on holding his own bottle. He crawls. He can go from laying down to sitting up on his own. He pulls himself up to standing. He has 2 teeth. He says "Maaaaa" while crying. He has an appt next week. Not really looking forward to the "shot" talk but i'm interested to see his stats! :) Look for them.
Last but not least, thanks to my friend Lani, and some inspiration of AP (attached parenting) mommas I made my own Moby sling. I had enough fabric to make 3! Carter has already been in it twice and fallen asleep both times. Wish I discovered this earlier!!! :) :)
