Cheerios Smear-y-O's

This past week, I've been offering Zachary Cheerios with lunch to help smooth out the wrinkles in his pincer grasp.   And I must say, while we have not quite over come the difficulties, he definitely got the hang of getting them in his mouth today!    :)    Here's some pictures from our awesome lunch-time fun time!

Hey mom!  Give me food and I'll give you cheese!  

Doing good, halfway through the pile he originally had, taken a break for some water. 

I think this is his signal for "DONE!".  LOL

So there we have it! And for the blog world, these are Zachary's new er um shoes  braces.  He's not so sure about them yet, but, hopefully he'll get used to them.   Fingers crossed we see some improvement and he'll learn to keep his toes out straight and stand flat-footed.   We've got a tippy-toer, which I think he got from me, I was the same when I was little.  But my shoes braces were not as cute.  

Yesterdays attempt at wearing our braces, as you can see, he was clearly NOT amused!

Happy Mothers Day!

   It's Mother's Day!!!!

   You know that day, that's supposed to be
just for you. The day your supposed to relax
and put your feet up, but, it's really just
a day people get you stuff and say "Happy
Mother's Day, now what are you making for dinner?!"

   I don't know about the rest of you out
Me- an official mommy 6/10/11
there but, this one is a lot different
than last years. 

   This time last year I was 8 months  pregnant
and beyond ready to be done with the whole
she-bang and get on with popping out the baby.

   Little did I know what awaited me on the
other side.   That was such a thin line to
me, becoming a mother, and being a mother.
It's a life lesson that no one can explain,
rather a lesson learned through experience. 

   But enough witht the epiphany yada yada.

It's been a good day, no melt downs, nap time
is still going strong, Tom used his lunch break
to pick me up lunch and bring it home.
No one drank my Starbucks Mocha Frapp that
I put in the fride last night.  And I got all
the dishes done in one load.  No complaints!

         Happy Mother's Day to all my Wonderful
Mommies doing their thang today!  May you all
know your worth! Multitasking fools!  :)
