David gave me a fat lip the other night! I was lovin on him before bed, and he reared back his little head, and the WHAPPED me in my mouth with his forehead. 36_19_2%5B1%5D.gif


I said "OW! David!"

He looked at me all scared, then leaned in and kissed me.

It made me all better. 36_1_20%5B1%5D.gif

But it was a little swollen. 36_19_2%5B1%5D.gif

We went to the discovery center Wednesday and had a good time. Meme met me out there to help me while we looked at everything, because our nurse is out.

Here's Angie and Annette, the PT and OT therapists.

We gave David cheerios for the first time the other day. It was so cute! He hasn't quite mastered the whole "pincher" grab yet.... so he's so funny trying to pick them up. Then, once their in his little fist, he can't figure out how to put them in his mouth. 36_1_20%5B1%5D.gif

He did pretty, good though - and I figure it's good practice.

My Mother's day was pretty good. Here's how it went:

Well, it started out a nice, sunny day.

We had some cheetos for lunch - and David ate really good! He probably ate around six cheetos 23_30_125%5B1%5D.gif

Then I decided that David should sign the Mother's Day cards for everyone. At first, it was nice. David was playing really well.

Suddenly, an idea formed in David's head.

Just when he thought I wasn't looking, he acted on his plan. He used the old "black for orange" switch.

Oh! But Mommy was too quick for him! Busted!!

He begged for the crayon back.

Finally just said screw it. 36_1_20%5B1%5D.gif

That poor crayon. 36_1_46%5B1%5D.gif

Well, I finally changed David's carseat around to face forwards, but now I have a problem.

I watched this video again

and now I think I'm gonna change it back. 36_1_44%5B1%5D.gif

Wow those pics are great!!!

speaking of the rear facing thing, it depends on ow much he weighs....if he weighs moe then 25 pounds, then he MUST face forward unless the car seat sticker on the side posts otehrwise.
