What is this Adventure?

Full-time Mama & Part-time school social worker in the throes of toddlerhood at its best and worst. In my short tenure as a member of the prestigious Mamahood club, I find the reality of it all to be amazing, exhausting, hilarious, challenging, a blessing, lonely at times, nostalgic, guilt-ridden, and the most wonderful thing that has ever happened to me...all at once. Sit back, read, laugh and cry with me on my adventure!

His Nana said he's a "boob man"....

I thought seven months old would be too young to have a temper tantrum....

Wrong again!

My problem? It's funny. Just like my aunt's story of her baby girl signing the letters to "whatever mega loser" on her forehead when angry at her father....my baby's temper tantrum was a riot!

It all started today when he was hungry.

Being that I am attempting to integrate more table food into his diet, I sat him in his seat to eat some squash.

Well, the first bite was welcomed. As was the next. By the third bite, the squash started seeping out the sides of his mouth (he had done this on purpose, it is his new trick). By the forth bite, he spit out everything on the spoon and started to rock back and forth (as if to say..."yeah, mama, try to get that spoon in my mouth NOW!"). I tried again, foolishly.....

Kier began to violently rock back and forth screaming. He threw his head back into the sky and screeched out bloody murder.

I waited.
Tried not to laugh.
And then removed him from his chair when he stopped screeching.

I signed "milk" in sign-language and he started laughing and coughing....his sure signs that he understood that he was getting what he wanted.

I sat down, sat him on my lap, and un-fastened my bra.

I couldn't get ready fast enough, apparently, because at that moment, Kier grabbed my boob with both hands, squeezed it, and shoved it into his mouth.

Have you ever seen "Lord of the Rings" when that troll looking guy holds on to the ring and says..."my precious" with a raspy voice?

That was my son and his milk.

Nana says I've got a "boob man" on my hands...

I'll be nursing him till he's ten at this rate......

I disappeared into baby bliss...

Well, as you can see, I have NOT been keeping up with my blog...
Why, you ask?
It makes perfect sense to me....Kieran moved into his big boy crib...

You don't understand?
Oh well, I live in a pretty small condo where Kieran's bedroom is the same as the "office" space where the computer is...and typing away on my computer while he is napping would be a "no no" in my book...that nap time is toooooo precious!

So, here's a baby update in as few words as possible:

moved to crip, napping more, getting big, blocked milk duct, ow ow ow, finally better, there's a tooth!, another one!, ouch, don't bite me!, that's not funny!, beautiful beach days!, basking in the sun...

do you get it?

Ok, I will have to update a little more thoroughly from now on :)

Welcome me back....
