Letting Go, Just a little bit

I never knew giving my kid some freedom would be so challenging.  I think by now everyone knows what struggles feeding him is and what great success we have had over the past few months with self feeding.  So we start out with some break, crackers nothing too messy.  Now he's become very independent and a "do it myselfer" when it comes to feeding and to be honest giving up that control has been more challenging than I anticipated.  So here's a few "do it myselfer" feeding pics for you to enjoy.  Hes actually gotten very good at it and its become quite the entertainment at the dinner table!

a little update

I try to blog, wish i was a little better at it, but alas i will try and sometimes fail.  Anyways so very excited for spring, i think these past few days are a  huge tease of the sunshine and sweatshirt weather that i love.  But just like it all it comes to an end tomorrow.  Aiden and I have officially gone on our first 'spring walk' and we both loved it.  Aiden is defiantly going to be my summer boy.  He loves being outside, running, playing and screaming, should be a fun summer!  I love how his little personality is coming out, although I do miss having a baby.  ;-)

Speech for Aiden is going great, hes getting so much better and learning new words all the time.  So far our vocabulary is; Mamma, Dadda, Go, Football, fish, cheese, sheep, ball and probably a few more I'm forgetting! 

Well that's about all i have for now! 

Happy Friday! :-)

Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and i will listen to you. you will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. i will be found by you," declares the lord, "and will bring you back from captivity or will restore your fortunes. i will gather you from all the nations and places where i have banished you," declares the lord, "and will bring you back to the place from which i carried you into exile."
