Well, Garrett is napping on me, so this is a prime opportunity for me to do a little blogging!
Around the house:
I need to make and print my newest project: chore charts! Trenton already has 6 day a week assignments, but I am not pleased with his bathroom cleaning skills, so I am going to rearrange some things for him. Plus, I am really bad about scheduling at home...I can spend all day playing with Garrett, shopping, and cooking...and I slack on cleaning. I think if I make myself some lists, and choose one task a day, I'll be fine! I already dusted today, so I feel accomplished!
Trenton started soccer last week. He hasn't played on a team for many years, and he is definitely out of practice, but he is being active and enjoying time with friends. Whatever makes him happy! His first game is Thursday...can't wait!
Garrett is a-movin'! Garrett loves to speed down the hall, giggling if he thinks I am 'chasing' after him. What a booger! He also has discovered what fun it is to pull EVERYTHING off shelves. I'm not fond of that game, but I allow it to some extent, because I think it helps him practice his standing.
Garrett is so strange about eating. We started solids at 4 months. He was ready, he loved them. Somewhere along the line, at about 7 or 8 months, he started refusing purees. Table foods started. Now, he won't hardly eat anything. Sure, he acts like he wants stuff, then his tongue pushes the food out of his mouth, like he doesn't want it. I sort of think it's his teeth---he has several trying to cut through, so he gnaws on the mesh feeder when I put ice cubes inside. He sometimes will eat avocado, puffs or cheerios, likes berries in the mesh feeder, and our new discovery, rice...he loves rice! Most of the time, though, Garrett wants a few bits of his food, then he wants to nurse. At 11 months and counting, I expected him to start weaning a little, but Garret has no interest in giving that up right now!
