Let's go for number 3 today...

Yes, I have exciting news. As I type this (though short lived it may be) my son is sleeping *DUM DUM DUM* in his own bed. Trumpets blare and bells are rining...hopefully not too loudly though. Don't want to wake the little monster over there. He used to sleep in his own bed quite often, but something happened when Daddy was home and son started sleeping in bed. Mommy has had quite the time reversing that. Tonight was the first time it has worked.. So far we are at 45 minutes in his own bed. Let's hope that he stays there!!!

Just some pictures.. Some are of the snowstorm we got. It coated all of the trees with snow and they were just so beautiful it wasn't even funny. The other one is of the little man "reading" the comics. :) Maybe he's a genius!

Pacifiers are for...

So. This is the little man in his "punk" look.

He had just gotten out of the tub so I spiked up his hair just a bit. I thought for a long time that he would be a hypocrite if he wore this shirt, but he won't take a pacifier. In fact, I have TRIED many times to give him one when I know he isn't hungry but just wants to suck on something. That just makes him madder than H-E-double hockey sticks.. :) He is growing up super fast. He will reach for me when he wants me to pick him up. Although it isn't really reaching.. It is more he sticks his hands out like he wants a hug. But still, he only does it when he wants to be picked up. We are going to venture out today despite the snowstorm we got this weekend. The roads aren't bad and we have some errands to run. Daddy is completely settled.. and we're just waiting for his high speed internet to kick in next month. That will be great.

The little man just pinched me and left a freakin' bruise! OW that hurts!

Controlled Leaning

There it is!!
Originally uploaded by maryriedl.
That is what my husband calls it. The little one has decided that he can sit. Sort of. If I set him up, and arrange his limbs he will sit unassisted for quite some time. He loves being a big boy too. If it means freedom, He is all about it. Well, that is until bedtime. Then he is strapped to me like a ball and chain. No the kid still isn't sleeping in his own bed. Which is fine for now, because he still wants to eat at 3:30 and again at 6:30, and frankly I'm not ready to be up at either time. However, it would be nice to just get into bed and clickity clack on my computer without fear of waking him up thanks to that myspace with some insane song playing on it. :)
