Good Intentions

This past weekend we went to St Louis for 2 Cardinals games, then we spent the day in Eldorado on Monday visiting family. We took over 500 photos this weekend. Today I had big plans to edit photos, write stories and put it all on my blog, all while being super mom and getting some much needed housework done. Negative Ghostrider.

Somewhere around the time Harvey exploded my mineral blush all over the living room carpet/his face and mouth/his outfit as we were about to walk out the door for his doctor's appointment, when we were 5 minutes late for said appointment and were consequently there for an hour and fifteen minutes for a quick visit and 3 shots, when we made a "quick stop" at Trader Joes and he screamed until I carried him around the store while pushing the cart and picking up everything we need for the week, when I picked Harvey up from his chair after lunch only to realize too late that he had massive diarrhea and it was all over my arm, and when I was cleaning up said diarrhea and it was all over the changing pad/his hands/and the wall, that I decided to just get real and the blog could wait.

I uploaded all the photos on my computer, it started to thunder, and I immediately jumped in my bed, snuggled in and took a nap until Harvey woke up.

Way better than editing and blogging. It's not everyday that you actually can take a nap during a thunderstorm.

So until I have some time to get those photos together, I thought I would do a quick update on Harvey's doctor's appointment.

Weight: 27 pounds 13 oz---88th percentile. Up from 81st at 12 months.

Height: 33 1/4 inches---95th percentile. He grew an inch and 1/4 in 3 months.

Head: 19.29 inches. 92nd percentile.

Harvey put 2 words together today for the first time. He now says "Uh-oh.....gone". Kind of. "Gone" sometimes sounds normal, and sometimes has extra letters and syllables. But that's definitely what he's saying. Probably because mom and dad tell him that every time he throws something on purpose.

Still no fruits and veggies in his life. But, he has accepted yogurt again, so I sneak in some fruit and veggies in the Horizon Blends yogurt. Yogurt blended with a fruit and a veggie---tricksy mom.

He is a funny boy. So giggley and happy (almost) all of the time. He reaches out for strangers and is happy to be held by anyone. Unless he's tired/grumpy/teething. Then he's either all mommy or all daddy. It changes frequently. Always keeping us on our toes.

All 4 of his first molars are working on coming in (3 are all the way there), and his top eye teeth are coming in too. He's allowed to be grumpy some days, I guess.

Hopefully tomorrow night I will have some photos from our big weekend. But for now, I'm off to snuggle while its raining once again.

Is it wrong that I felt better about my life when I read this post? I felt better cause those types of days dont just happen to me...smart choice with the nap vs blog. That choice is why my blog is boring and my pictures are never edited.
