I got to thinking the other that we do not have naked peanut pictures! (besides bath pictures) How could this be? What are we going to display at his graduation party? So I knew this had to be fixed! Enjoy naked peanut pictures!

Since my last blog post the peanut is eating lots of new things! Remember awhile back when he did not want anything to do with solids? Well, that is a thing of the past. Now, most of the time, he will gobble up his fruits and veggies. However, now we are onto the stage three foods, and they are in glass jars. I’m not a fan of the glass jars.

In the past week or so he has also had yogurt and eggs! He is not to sure about the eggs, but I’m going to keep trying. One thing that I’m not giving him is meat. I’m a non-meat eater, and for the time being so is the peanut. Donnie and I decided that since I buy the food, and feed him most often I can pick what he eats. I did talk it over with his doctor and she is fine with him not eating meat.

Donnie always claims that the peanut really wants to eat meat, and is most upset about not eating it. I think he is full of poop. However, a couple weeks ago we dropped him off at the church nursery, and know what his favorite toy there was? I plastic chicken drumstick! I was most distraught over this turn of events.

Now that the peanut is moving around, Frankie is becoming less fond of him. The peanut likes to poke him, and he really likes the pugs collar.
I think because of all this change Frankie is acting out. He is having “accidents”, something he has never done before. Last night Donnie went to put on his jeans and he felt something wet on them, and I’m sure you have guessed, Frankie had an “accident” on them.
I think we will need to give the pug more love, to make up for the peanut.

Last weekend turned out to be a bit different than planned. On Friday night Donnie was feeling sick, and then by Saturday he was super sick. I really don’t think I have ever seen Donnie that sick. By Sunday he was feeling a bit better. The peanut and I went to church and then over to my dad’s and left Donnie all alone on his first Fathers day. I don’t think he minded too much, seeing that he was not feeling well.

However, we did go on a family walk that night, and we did get some Fathers Day pictures! I am happy to report that he is feeling much better now!

Teeth and Crawling

Its official. The peanut has two teeth, and is crawling all over the place! I have tried so hard to take pictures of his teeth, but with no luck. So you will have to imagine the peanut with two lower front teeth. The teeth are super cute.

He has also become very good at crawling. I had to spend some time childproofing! However, the floor could be covered in toys, and what does he go after? The cords on the computer. So there is no taking your eye off of him!

He has not leaned how to pick something up while crawling. He will put his head on the floor and then reach for what he wants. I find it to be very funny. I think he is happier now that he can crawl because he can go where he wants, when he wants. And a happier peanut makes a happier mommy!

Donnie and I have found a new hobby. Lego’s! Donnie has enjoyed playing with Lego’s for a long time, so he had a whole box of them in the basement. I, however, have not played with lego’s in a very long time. But I have to say, they are most fun.

The first thing I tried to make a few weeks ago was a house, but it did not turn out so nice. Donnie referred to it as an outhouse. I was most upset by this. However I have redeemed myself with my princesses house. And Donnie only helped me a little with it!

We have AC! Last year I posted that we could not decided what do about our AC. We were debating about just fixing it, or getting another window unit for the living room. Well, after a year we have decide to buy another window unit for the living room.

It is working out very well. Our house is so small, that it cools almost the whole house! We do have a smaller unit in the peanut’s room, to keep him cool. Because if peanuts not happy no one is happy!

I'm Back!

Hello to all my very faithful readers! I know it had been a very long time since the last post. For some reason I just did not feel like blogging. I don’t know what came over me. Does any one else ever get that way?
The peanut is now 9 months old! Time sure does fly! I took him to the doctor for his 9 month check up on Tuesday, and the doctor says he is doing very well. He weighs 19 pounds 10 oz now, and is 29 inches long! Now that he is 29 inches, he is too big for his baby car seat. And to that I say, thank goodness! I don’t know about you other mom’s out there, but he was getting SO heavy to carry around in that thing! Now he gets to move on to a big kid car seat. I will have to take pictures of it when we put it in!
Thanks for reading after the long break!
