If there is one thing motherhood has taught me...

It's that every time you think you have things figured out, your child will throw you a nasty curve.

We had a rough night. It's bound to happen from time to time, but it doesn't make me any less groggy and half frazzled. I'm not even sure why he woke up screaming, but he managed to throw his paci in the gap at the head of the bed and I had to crawl around on the floor half naked trying to squeeze myself under there to retrieve it.

Sorta funny in retrospect.

It's really a good thing he is cute, because otherwise, he might be fending for himself. (I kid, I kid, but I am now fully aware of the meaning of "no days off").

I gotta get back to struggling to eat my toast while Quinlon tries to climb up my arm and steal my food.

Aw, sorry about the rough night. We all have them!

Cannon doesn't try to steal my food yet, but he does steal my water. I'm surprised I haven't died of dehydration yet. I can't drink ANYTHING around him.

Oh yes, he's a water stealer too. He hasn't even had solids other than tasting fruit that we are eating (he sucks the juice and looooves peaches). He is so interested in everything we eat and if we don't watch, he will snatch it right off your plate.

That is so funny!

Andrew's favorites are plums, blueberries, and peaches. Well, really, he likes most all fruit.

Totally off topic, but I'm not on your blog list.

Hush you!

hehe. I tried, but because you're private it says no way, Jose.

But, I am sure you already knew that!

If D wins this weekend, we will be seeing you next week. :D

I had to interject after the comments you made about food and his interest to take it from you, you should definitely check this out if you get a chance.
