That's my #7 layout of the year.
Am I on fire or what???!!!!
I followed a sketch from www.scrappinmojo.com & decided to do one of Cheek's first portraits...his Halloween costume. Man, is he a cutie or what??? I know I'm partial but come on! Hee hee
This is the same child, who has learned to stand in his crib. This is a no no. So today, after the 2.5 hr morning nap (Thank you God, Thank you!), I go in b/c he is too quiet. There he is standing. Proud as can be. So I cleared my throat & said "Ethan, are you supposed to be doing that?" He turned his head, wiggled his one eyebrow & started to giggle. It was so darn funny, I had to leave the room. I don't know what I'm going to do if all I do is laugh at his antics.
I will end up with a brat.
Ok, note to self...must control laughter. I mean I did leave the room before I giggled. Anyway....
I would like to give a shout out to my Uncle Mike. That's my Aunt Patty's hubby. She reads my blog. I think she, my mom & like 2 other's are my regulars. If you are a regular, give me a holla (leave me a comment...I love the comments). Anyway I saw my Uncle Mike at Shop Rite this morning at like 9am. I went food shopping for the first time in like 4 weeks. So there go me & the Cheekers on our way to load up the minivan when who comes strolling up the lane in the parking lot but Uncle Mike.
So, Hello Uncle Mike & Hello Aunt Patty (b/c I know you are reading this...at least I hope you are!)
As for the Shake it off. Tuesday when Cheeks learned to pull himself up, he would fall. Usually on his tush, then his back. Well he just goes to the tush now but it usually knocks the wind out of him or stuns him at least plus he will hit his noggin too. At first, I was always like
And would try to comfort him. After the 100th time, I started to look, make sure there's no blood or he's wonky & I just tell him "Shake off!"
Works well! He gets right back up. Now he thinks he can stand on his own & lets go. I see walking in the future. I finally charged the dvd recorder camera my dad gave me & I am having a ball using it.
When I figure out how to upload, I will post the video of Cheeks eating his mashed potatoes. He got a bath immediately following. Oiy've.
Well tomorrow starts another work week. *sigh* I also go back to the dr for the stupid cyst on my face. It hurts again, so I think it got reinfected. NICE! They are sending me to a plastic surgeon for the rest of the removal.
On that note...
