sickness aversion

   Posted by: arcanai    in the sequel

i thought it only happened with tequila but, apparently, it starts much earlier. the sequel was finally getting the whole eating and swallowing thing down but i must have let him overeat. a few hours later, he was projectile vomiting all over the place. yesterday, he refused to eat any more avocado. today, i tried peas out on him to see if he could deal with that any better. he made it very clear that he no longer has any interest in eating food. poor little guy. i ruined his budding appetite by indulging gluttony.

Starting the day right

   Posted by: arcanai    in the turkey

Because we didn’t know when we would be coming home from AL, we asked to be left off the schedule for church this week (good thing since our “We should be able to easily make it home by 19:30″ became rolling in at 22:00). Normally, we serve every week and wear a church shirt. It’s rare that we wear “real clothes” to church. Add to that the fact that I’m nursing so my wardrobe consists of nothing but easy access tops, and it’s a true treat indeed when I get to dress nice and feel good about my appearance. This morning, I wore my beautiful “new” dress that i only ever wore for my maternity photos. I felt good. But when the turkey came out of his room and saw me, he came running up to me shouting “mommy, you look so pretty!” My heart stopped, my eyes welled up, and I felt truly gorgeous! What a great start to the day. I love that boy like mad.

“please” please

   Posted by: arcanai    in the sequel

the sequel is such a little smarty. i’ve been meaning to start making him sign “please” before meals for the last month or so and i just kept forgetting every meal. last week, i finally worked it into my routine. after a little over a week, he’s already starting to try to do it on his own. i say “let’s do please” and he starts swirling his right arm around. sure, it’s not technically correct yet but i think that’s a fantastic start for such a short time. i want to say it was a month and a half or two months of doing it with the turkey before he started doing it on his own.

in other news, he’s crawling all over the living room and trying his best to pull up on stuff. this one is just in way too big a rush to be a big boy. :-(

premature palm sunday

   Posted by: arcanai    in the turkey

this weekend, i noticed that the turkey had pulled the edge pieces off all the mats in his room. i walked in and found him waving them around in both hands. “what are you doing, lovebug?” said i. “i’m waving palm branches for Jesus!”

i seriously love that boy.
