20 Day Count Down...

It looks like I am on a 20 day count down for walking...  What's in 20 days you ask?  Daddy's Birthday!! :-)  They said I have to walk by daddy's b-day... (but if not than by Halloween, & if not by then, then they will pick another date! hehe)  Don't get me wrong, I love walking and i'm walking ALL over the place now but i just still think its safer if i hold on to something. :-)  I pull myself up and work my way all over the house now.  Always following mommy of course!  I go EVERYWHERE she goes!  Except they put up a wall by the laundry room so i cant help get clothes out of the dryer no more... (prob. cause i liked to make pit stops at the cat food as i went by) I like to reach for things on tables now too.  Like the remotes on the end table, i usually pull them off and throw them on the floor for mommy to later pick up so i can do again another day. hehe  Lately i've started getting on my feet and hands in the middle of the floor (mommy asks if i'm gonna do a hand stand) but then i remember that i have nothing to hold onto so i sit back down and move over by something to pull myself up.  Mommy says one day i'll just get up and go w/ out thinking about it.  We'll see...  I also love looking out the window... kinda hard to watch cars go by when we are the only ones on a dead end street... so i just look around at everything else and feel the breeze.  I am a little daredevil on mommys bed though... when we cuddle up i like to practice standing w/ NO Hands! :-)  (cause i know the bed is soft and she would catch me too)  I usually stand up, put my hands in the air and then fall over on mommy (on purpose) and laugh.  It's really fun, you should try it!  We usually play like that and get all out giggles out before bedtime.  It makes me not want to go to sleep but eventually i get wore out. 
Speaking of following mommy everywhere... i think sometimes she tries to hide from me, but i ALWAYS find her.  I search the house over until i do.  And doors don't stand in my way.  I push them open like i'm the boss.  (cause i am the boss!)  And when mommy gets ready in the morning i close the door behind me so she can't run off w/out me. :-) 

Okay, it's off to sleep i go...

Nighty Nite!

Before I was a Mom,
I never tripped over toys
or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not
my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom,
I had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Chewed on.
Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind
and my thoughts.
I slept all night .

Before I was a Mom,
I never held down a screaming child
so doctors could do tests.
Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night
watching a baby sleep .

Before I was a Mom,
I never held a sleeping baby just because
I didn't want to put her down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces
when I couldn't stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small
could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much. I never knew I would love being a Mom .

Before I was a Mom,
I didn't know the feeling of
having my heart outside my body..
I didn't know how special it could feel
to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond
between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small
could make me feel so important and happy .

Before I was a Mom,
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night
every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth,
the joy,
the love,
the heartache,
the wonderment
or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much,
before I was a Mom

May you always be overwhelmed by the Grace of God rather than by the cares of life.

Eatin good in the neighborhood...

I've been tryin more & more things lately and mommy says i'm becoming a lil man. I love chicken & hotdogs/corndogs! Im trying more meals at daycare too but some days i just want my good ol babyfood. And i might eat something one day but when they have it again i might not. Oh but i just LOVE the chilibun they make... I even asked for seconds yesterday! -:) At night im pretty much eating whatever it is mommy & daddy are eating. Unless its something i dont like then mommy will feed me some babyfood. She says i have to eat EVERY night! Hehe.

Last night mommy gave me a little tree thingy... (she said its broccoli) i put my thumb on it & push it around a lil then i just looked at her like "i'm suppose to eat this??". Shes crazy if she thinks im gonna eat a tree... I threw it down for Bubba to eat but he didnt want it either. Mommy gets mad when i give bubba food but i think it is soooo funny! I throw a piece, then laugh real loud, mommy says no & then i do it again & again! Lol. She eventually laughs too cause im just cute like that but she tries to hide it so i dont see it. She dont fool me! ;-)

I'm also drinking mommy & daddys milk sometimes now too. The other day when we went to the store mommy got me the chocolate kind too! Its pretty good! Its really good w/ poptarts! Me & mommy both love the brown sugar & cinnamon kind. We like other kinds too but thats our favorite.

Ok well i just thought i'd do a little update.
