Close and Closer....

This baby has been half standing, FREE half standing, all evening! Half standing for a few second, longer and longer each time! I may have another walker on my hands this week!
At the farmer's market, he was pointing at the fruit and saying, "apple" "strawbear" and "bluebear".
Proud Mama!

Life Saving Knowledge and Know How

My husband saved my life again. The first time was on January 6, 2012, when I choked on a hot dog. The second time was today, August 20, 2015, when I choked on a burrito and water. Thank the Gods for his quick thinking. Again.
Chew your food, people, and brush up on your CPR, First Aid, and Heimlich Maneuver. It could save a life.

Get American Red Cross First Aid Training Courses

  • I am not a doctor or anything.  Once upon a time I was certified in CPR and First Aid.  Cross check your sources, or better yet, take the time to gain proper training and certification.  My husband is not certified, and saved my life twice.  It's better to have the knowledge and not need it, than need it and not have it.

Day of Hope 2015

I think I'm going to participate in this.  Most of our stuff is packed up, but the craft materials, so it looks pretty easy to make a Prayer Flag.

I've Got Two Huge Peppa Fans

Warrior is apparently a huge fan of Peppa Pig.  Then again, animals.  Warrior loves animals.  He realized it was on, got very excited, stood up and took a few step along my leg, pointing at the TV, with an OOOOOOOOOOO face, eyes wide!  Then he said, "Peppa Pig!"

He's also been standing on his own, while distracted for the last couple of days.  Yep, when he's not focusing on standing or walking, he does it on his own.  And if Peppa helps to get him going, I'm all for it!


Depending on what his interests are by spring, maybe Peppa Pig will be the theme of Warrior's second birthday?

Goin to the Zoo!

Pretend zoo:

The boys have a zoo book, and Vin is placing stuffed animals and a rubber ducky and trying to close the book with them in it. He's returning them to the zoo.

He just put the duck in the book's pond and tried to close the book. This is very amusing.

Also, yesterday, we spend the First Harvest with family, at a party honoring my grandmother, called Hester Fest. This is either the first or second bass that Wolfman's caught:

Daddy cast it, and Wolfman put his pole down to take daddy's pole. He reeled it, and attracted his beauty, practically hooked itself. But Wolfman pulled it in. Mommy's little fish slayer.
