Whaddya mean I should drink it? Mommy drinks it for me!
No really, it's FABULOUS... just ask Mommy & Daddy and Matthan and Caitlyn!
The best part about the Silk experience this morning was that Westley was sitting without the bumbo and without me holding him up! He can sit for several seconds with pretty good balance and even sits on the floor for a couple of minutes. 5 months old!
Plus we tried out the cup today... he actually got a little water from it too. Milestones are zipping right by! He is trying to crawl on the floor when we have tummy time too. It all really goes too fast.
Sir Westley reading a book (and sitting slightly assisted)
What a face!
Cherry tomatoes - my plant
Again, my plant
My first large tomato.... not quite ripe
Whatcha doin Mom?
Playing around (supposed to be sleeping!)
This is a gorgeous field(s) of Sunflowers on the way to Kansas City
Not sure I can pick which is best to paint...
I Love you Mommy!
Same field different angle
They just seemed to go on forever
"It is official... I have now tried rice cereal...
and I'm not too sure I want to ever try it again!"
Okay... I am just kidding around with that... He really loved the cereal. I just "caught" that pic in between smiling and opening for more. That was last night (by the way, it did not help him sleep any longer arrgh.) We tried giving him cereal again tonight, before a wonderful bath ... we will see if he sleeps longer. We HAVE to get him to go longer than 2.5 hours at night for our own sake of rest!
Okay, for years I have said (okay complained) that my kids don't look anything like me. There are the obvious Anderson resemblances with Caitlyn, now more than ever, she looks like my mom. No ones even needs to mention that Matthan is a replica of Chris!
Now I have one that looks unmistakably like me... it is very cool to look at your child and see hints of your own baby pictures... with a bit of my big brother thrown in for good measure!
He has my nose (Praise God!), my mouth, my chin, my cheeks and maybe even my forehead (though hard to discern in this pic)... his head however is shaped like his Uncle Brad.
Let's all be quite clear... He has the Clausen Ears! and possibly the Clausen disposition (another huge Praise God here!)
We have had computer difficulties these past three weeks... First we cannot get photos to work on the imac... then the pc went down and had to be sent back and forth to dell twice... ugh. Now we are trying to get back on track with the dell and it seems to have some of the original problem still happening... but wouldn't you know it, the warranty ran out between the first two sendings and now i have to buy a new warranty before i can send it back... so... it may be a bit before you see the beautiful faces of our children online.
Today at dinner Westley (now 5 mos, can you believe it?!) tried to drink from Paige's water glass.... he got all excited as she was taking a drink and grabbed for it. So she let him grab it and he pulled it to his mouth and stuck his tongue into the mouth of the glass... she tipped it up and he had his first official drink of water! He is such a smiley happy baby all the time. We are all really enjoying him.
The resemblance to Westley is uncanny. Sorry for the poor photo quality... we will get a better pic up soon. :) This is a pic from 45 years ago after all. Westley's nose is still looking like Paige's !!!
I took these two pics with my cell phone. I just stuck Westley into the sink this morning just because. He was staring into the fixture because it is so shiny! I snapped the other one as Matthan was hanging out with Olivia Riddering in Kansas City while the teens were getting registered (which took three hours for us) and having a pizza dinner.
Kansas City was great. The drive home was peaceful and pretty. Though it was mostly dark we had great music. Matthan fell asleep playing Gameboy... it was hanging from his hands! He didn't do that until around 11 pm though, poor kid slept until almost 9 today. We didn't get home until midnight and it was so very hard to get up with Westley every two hours after that. The road trip has his schedule off a bit, we will try to remedy that tonight.
