Andy as a baby

I had to put this up because I love this picture.
The more Jesse grows up the more he looks like
Andy. One of these times I will find one of my
baby pics and put them up.

Bottle problems

So I have been trying, unsuccessfully, to wean Jesse from his bottle. I have tried replacing them with sippies, giving him less milk, and just quitting cold turkey. It's hard because I know that it is mostly just a comfort to him before he goes to bed and when he wakes up. He is no dummy though- if I come into his room to get him out of bed and I don't have a bottle in my hand, he won't let me take him out. And he throws wicked tantrums. I need some advice because at this point I will try anything!! Oh and he has been sick so it makes it that much harder. Thanks for listening to my pity party! But seriously, help???

Growing up!

So we have started something new this week-
and all because Jesse refused to let me help
him with ANYTHING anymore. I give him my
hand to walk with, he shrugs it off. I give him
a spoon to eat with, he throws a tantrum. So
here are some pictures of me FINALLY giving
in and saying- fine, do it yourself. He was pretty
please with himself.

(Notice more of the applesauce is on his
bib and face than actually went in his mouth)

And I couldn't resist this- there is nothing
like his cute little naked bum. :)

He is getting so smart! If you turn your volume up for this video, you
can hear him imitating the pig. He also does a sheep noise, but
he went camera shy or something! Enjoy :)

I decided to just write down a few of my favorite things. Sometimes I like to do this to remind myself of how lucky I am to living with so many blessings. One of my very favorite things to do is to find a good book, curl up under a blanket, sit in my favorite chair and read for hours. I can't explain how much I long to do this each day but, alas, how busy I am. Oh and did I mention I need some recommendations of some good books? Another one of my favorite things is to lay down on the floor next to Jesse as he is playing and just watch him. Lately he loves to attack me with kisses as I am laying on the floor next to him. I simply cannot complain about that! Since I don't want to spend three hours typing up my favorite things I will leave you with one last thing. My very favorite thing in the world is to stand on a beach, hear the ocean's soft rhythm, feel the wind in my hair and the sand in my toes, and it washes all my worries away. I am feeling very poetic today. Maybe I will write a poem. Take some time to think about your favorite things in life and maybe, like me, it will give you the feeling of how blessed you are for the simple pleasures in life.
