|Grandma Donna and Superman|
Onto my favorite moments...
- Superman is now an expert drinker from the sippy cup. He can pick up the cup, position it correctly, and take a sip. The biggest deal? He no longer spits the water everywhere. (If this happens to you, try putting a tiny bit of apple juice in the water. He like the taste so he started drinking it. Each meal I added less and less juice and now he just drinks the plain water without the spitting.)
- I figured out how to keep him awake in the car! I figure out this trick when one day I handed him a half filled water bottle to play with in hopes that he would not fall asleep. It worked!! Other items that have worked include: Bed, Bath, and Beyond coupons, bibs, and anything else that won't be harmful, but you don't usually let him play with. I figured it was the novelty of the item, but when I tried handing him a new toy, that worked too. So now that I know the trick I just hoard all the toys up front and hand them one at a time as he gets sleepy. You're welcome. :)
- We bought this backpack carrier for Superman. If you missed it on Wednesday, I posted this picture of us trying it out for the first time. I spent much of my wee years in a backpack that was not nearly this nice, hiking all over the Adirondacks. I am looking forward to many, many hikes with Superman.
- He is EIGHT months old and got his EIGHTH tooth on Wednesday, September EIGHTH. Isn't that cool?
I think that is all for this week. I am off to finish getting things cleaned up because my husband's parents will be here in a couple of hours. They live in Kansas and it will be a real treat having them here right now.
