*sigh* help me lord

Freezing rain, sleet and freezing temperatures are not a good mix, especially when your house sits on a hill and your driveway is steep as hell. I had to catch a cab to work yesterday because we were pretty much stuck on the hill with the cars. I went outside yesterday to do a dry run with out the baby and car seat to determine the best way to get down our hill. There is no best way down our hill. I tried to go down the grass, which was icy as hell and ended up slididng down mY neighbors driveway. -Accident #1- On my way back up the drive way I musta hit a slippery piece of ice (as if there is a such thing as a non slippery piece of ice) and I slid down the hill, lost my balance and rolled down the hill.  So by this time im serious contemplating how im going to get myself, 3 bags, Jr and the carseat down this hill with out breaking bones, busting asses or killing us. Thank god I found this little shovel in the garage, I used that to make a small path down the drive that I can walk down safely. Thank God I had a nice cab driver, he offered to carry the carseat down while I carried jr down. He was really nice for offering, but I feel bad because he kinda slid down my driveway. I giggled. Lol My chld has been in more adventures in his 7 months of living. Bug he takes it all in stride and smiles. I love him.

hes a good investment!

So apparently Jr does not like peas. When we try to feed it to him, we have more peas on his face, bib and high chair tray than we do in his mouth. So what i do to get him to eat it is toast some bread and smear it on there, cut em up into pieces and let him gnaw away. Its so funny because anytime Jr is in his highchair, Pachino is close by. Pachino is starting to understand that when Jr is in the highchair he does benifit from it also. When Jr is done with the piece of bread he was sucking on, he just opens his hands and lets it fall to the floor. Pachino probably thinks that he is a good investment since he doesnt get to eat table scraps. Now that we have the baby he gets baby scraps and baby food. lol Pachino has eaten squash, peas, carrots or whatever  the baby is eating. lol its great

its now time to baby proof my home.

Jr is now  7 months, he isnt crawling because he hates being on his stomach. I put  him in his walker and over the past two days hes realized how to get moving in that thing. He scoots to the tv and the christmas tree. I am constantly getting up and telling him no when hes in that tree. its crazy. he walked around his bedroom today and was instantly drawn to the tall dresser in his room. he was pullin like crazy at the drawers. Then he wandered to his changing table. I had to push everything back against the wall so he couldnt grab anything. I didnt realize i was going to be in constant motion with him, but it only makes sense. Its exciting watching him grow. Hell he's 7 months now and i STILL have those: OMG this is my child moments. That still blows my mind.

7 months and counting, Jr is learning to walk in his walker. He can scoot backwards on the ground, along with rolling over both ways. He is drooling on EVERYTHING and EVERTHING is going in his mouth. He can sit up for long periods of time before falling back   He blows plenty of spit bubbles and is a babbling mess. lol He is truly my heart.<3 p.e.a.c.e
