Happy 5 months Mr. Theo! You love putting everything in your mouth. You like to hang out with mom and everyone else in the baby bjorn and groove in your bouncy seat that we borrowed from cousin Brooklyn. Laughing at your big brothers is how you spend most of your mornings after they sneak into your crib. You aren't as interested in them hovering over you and 'showing' you your eyes and nose. I can't blame ya bud. We love you 'buddy'!
The countdown was over. The day finally arrived. It was time to head to Great Wolf Lodge with cousin Farris, Grand-mama and Grand-daddy and Nash got to join in this year. It was everything Jackson has talked about for the past year and more. I think I need to check this place out for myself!
The big HUGEEE bucket!
Coolest cousin ever and did you know… he is FIVE!
And if Great Wolf wasn't enough, they stopped at Chuckee-Cheese for lunch on the way back. Grandmama is the coolest or just a little bit crazy.
Theo is ready for something to eat besides breast milk. Everything I put in my mouth he reaches for and everything he can get his hands on he puts in his mouth. I remember when the doctor gave me the go ahead for 'solid' foods with Jackson. I rushed to the store to get my rice cereal, started cooking and pureeing sweet potatoes, got all the soft spoons and pretty bibs out with excited anticipation. When I got the go ahead for Theo at his 4 month appointment I thought, really? already? For one thing this is just going by way to fast and for another, I don't have the time to feed him. The thought of trying to shovel rice cereal down his throat with the help of his 2 older brothers is a little terrifying. Sorry sweet boy, we are gonna give it a little bit longer.
The other night I wrangled all 3 boys for dinner and carried them up for a bath. Really I carried each one because if you really want them to do something then sometimes you just have to do it yourself. I decided to let the big guys take a shower while I got Theo washed off and ready for bed. They promised not to wrestle or jump off the shower seat or throw soap at each other and to only pee down the drain. Some how in 30 seconds they forgot all of this or as Jackson has learned to say 'oh I didn't even hear you say that mom.' I hollered in there if you guys do not stop throwing washcloths over the shower door then you will only take baths from here on out. 'OK MOM.' And then in a quiet little voice, 'Don't worry Nash, she is gonna forget. Mom can't remember everything like we do.' Ages 4 and 2. Am I already getting ganged up on?
Shucking cranberry beans on the front porch. They did this for a good 30 minutes without fighting. Victory!
