Documenting them...and a little of me.

Yesterday he:

Turned 5 months old.

Is 17and a half pounds and 71 cm long.

He is eating rice, barley, oatmeal, peas, sweet potatoes and green beans without much passion.  In fact I would put money on it that he will not be a great eater.

Is turning over, back to front but still getting his arm caught underneath himself.

Smiles like crazy.

Always reaches for things that are strung, waved or placed in front of him, intentional or otherwise.

Has two teeth.

Has lost most of his baby hair and has tons of new growth.

Has not lost his skin sensitivities.  He scratches himself like crazy.

Is not sleeping through the night, however he only nurses once at 3:00am.

Speaking of sleep, he has three 45 minute naps a day...not a minute more.

Uses a pacifier

Plays in his excersaucer and jolly jumper.

Tomorrow HE:

Turns two and a half.

Is still 29 pounds and 37 inches tall.

Can throw a tantrum with the best of them.

Is fully transitioned into a toddler bed.

Still doesn't like fruit but will walk around with it in his mouth. 

Can not go one day without a pickle.

Is able to put his shoes on the right feet, by himself.

Can communicate in sentences what he wants...usually by screaming “I want....".

Gets juice, milk or pickles out of the fridge and place them on the counter when he wants them.

Will run and get the utensil of choice for himself at meal times.

Speaking of utensils, he can eat with them but often puts the food on the utensil, with his hand, and then proceeds to shove the food into his mouth using the utensil and the hand.

Can throw things in the garbage when asked.

Will slam doors when he is mad.

Gives the best hugs and kisses when HE is in the mood.

Has kicked me in the face and tried to claw my eyeballs out.

LOVES the Wonderpets and In The Night Garden. 

Today I:

Hate In the Night Garden.

Have begun to think about Christmas and is busy working on some handmade gifts for the in-laws.

Have decided to give up chocolate and baked goods for the month of November in order to kick start some more weight loss.

Have more energy today then most days, mostly because I was in bed at 7:30 last night.

Am not proud of myself on some days when my temper gets the best of me.

Am trying to stay positive everyday.

Am sick of hearing about H1N1.

Am enjoying the ride however bumpy.
