September 22nd, 2011
It's funny how we didn't do anything today, but it was full of laughter and fun. Gus slept until 8 this morning, which was so nice. I felt refreshed, and went in to find him in a terrific mood. I decided to record him as soon as I went in, so that you could see his new routine of taking all his "things" out of his crib before leaving.
Isn't he so funny?? He loves his froggy and has started to hug it and kiss it, and will give it to me for me to kiss. He smiles really big when I kiss his froggy and then he wants it back. :-)
We listened to music, read books, and played all morning long. It was rainy and on the cool side, so we didn't go to the park. I was just as happy to stay home and play with Gus. He took a two and a half hour nap around 11:30 and woke up at 2 and was starving.
We had lunch and he kept stuffing as much food as possible into his mouth. He didn't choke, but he certainly wasn't happy until he couldn't fit another bit of food in there!
It's a bit ridiculous right?? I guess it's how he'll learn... but my goodness!
Gus has started to say "here" and "there" today and was trying to mimic Steve when doing the "I've got my eyes on you" point-at-eyes-then-at-person pointy thing. I hope you know what I'm referring to...
Anyway... we do this to Gus and he cracks up laughing. Today he was trying to do it back to us and it was hilarious. He really does make us laugh!!
I finished my October book review for Scholastic-- not really a book that I enjoyed, but it was okay. Then I finished the baby shower gift for Amie (I've got a few weeks before her shower but wanted to get it done) and then I started my module on Diagnostic Reports. My new headphones came today too, so I'm all set.
Tomorrow is Friday... THANK GOODNESS!! I'm ready to sleep in... and get this module out of the way! Is it bad that I get through each one and see it as one less module to do? I just want this to be over already...
So... a year ago... these pictures brought back so many wonderful memories and made me smile. I don't think Gus has changed too much from these... and I can remember thinking about how exciting it was to start solid foods, only to turn around and be so disappointed that it wasn't going as planned. Gus wasn't eating them and I freaked out that he'd never eat like a "normal" child. I laugh because today he shoved as much food into his mouth... and obviously has no eating issues (well, except for maybe putting too much food into his mouth at once). Parenthood isn't easy, and I wonder if I'll always second-guess things.
Did I tell you about the girl that I met yesterday? She had an 18-month-old daughter (with a HUGE head BTW) who wasn't speaking AT ALL. I mean, not even saying a word here or there. She was not saying mama or dada... and the mom wasn't worried in the least. She said, "My husband was a late-talker so we just figure she'll be like him." She also has a four-year-old, and he's not talking. She said his doctors have told her to watch for signs of Autism, but she wasn't worried. I was shocked... I guess on one end of the spectrum there's me, worried about everything, and then the other end, is her, not worried at all. I need to be more towards the middle (I'm getting better)... but man alive.
This just cracked me up
Awwww tummy time
Still the #1 fan of daddy
See you tomorrow!
