Wesley Crush:18 Months

You love to look out our back window & yell "Kack, Kack," at the ducks.You call Mia "sissy'" with the sweetest baby lisp. Anytime you hear a plane stop dead in your tracks, point to the sky and say "air pane, air pane." I remember Mia u doing the same thing.You want to to do everything she does & more. Mimicking her every move & demanding to have the same things she's eating and drinking. You're starting to shriek & throw tantrums when you can't have something you want.
You only have 6 teeth 3 on top, 3 on the bottom. Slowest teether EVER. Luckily it hasn't made you super fussy. You weigh 22 lbs 5 oz  & are 32 inches long. You're staying the course at 25%.
You little boy are continuing to prove how much you love to climb...ON EVERYTHING!!!! We finally had to move our little art studio bc you insisted on climbing on top of it while smearing paints all over your body. Obsessed with belly buttons. the minute your shirt is off you point at his and starts giggling!! You can point to his eyes, nose, mouth, hair & head. You LOVE the lift & see Karen Katz books.
On the subject of walking. In just one month you've developed so much more confidence in standing & cruising along the furniture. Occasionally you'll pull your hands free and just be standing, steady on your feet. I don't even think you even realize it. Maybe it's the 2nd time mom in me, but I'm not super worried. I know you'll walk eventually. Until then you'll just be mama's boy (& daddy's for that matter) a little longer.

Fly My LIttle Love

Yesterday was my baby's first day of school. I know it's only pre-school, & she'll do two years before kindy, but whatever. It's a big deal to let this mama's heart out into the world. She was READY!!!!! Actually she was most excited to get a "water drink," aka a drink from the water fountain. Mama, can I swallow it???  Apparently she REALLY needs pre-school!!! Hahaha.  She walked into class without a backward glance at her daddy or I. Fly my little one & let your confidence grow & your spirit shine. Love this life with every ounce of courage you have. We love you so much sweet Mia Isabelle!!! Happy 1st day of school!!!

Tim Mcgraw via iPhone

This was my second concert at Legend Valley and I can't say enough about it. Such a great outdoor venue. It's a beautiful drive out, super easy parking/exiting. You can sit where ever you want. On Tim Mcgraw's lap? Practically!!!!  So happy to spend a beautiful Summer nite with my two besties!! As you can tell we got a little rowdier as the nite progressed....... I wasn't so sure about Cassadee Pope but when she sang Bed of Roses I was hooked!!!!

Summertime Blues are Finally Gone

We are fiiinnnnaaallly all healthy again and Summer is almost over. We aren't going down without a fight. Millersport Sweet Corn Festival for the win!!!!!!! This is the first time we've gone that Mia has been big enough to try the rides out. Check off first pony ride, flying in a mini helicopter & spinning in a Dizzy Dog. It was perfection! Then she dumped too much salt on her corn & it was all over. HAHA The bipolar toddler never fails to strike, but what a sweet night.
Sweet Corn fest visits here & here.

Peach Strawberry Basil Smoothie

I had been looking forward to the Food Truck Festival forever. Sooooo inevitably my kid gets sick, right? Like seriously, up all nite with croup sick. I do not recommend!!  If I had made it to the festival I would have been looking for a smoothie truck. Perhaps there would have been a Peach Strawberry Basil smoothie?  Here is my version, Wesley & mama tested & approved!
2 ripe peaches
6 strawberries
1 large basil leaf
2 Tbs Cream of Coconut ( I use Goya found in the Thai section at Gian Eagle)
1 c water
10 ice cubes
Blend
We use the Nutribullet & are obsessed at the EASY clean up!!!!!!!
While I was pretending to be at the Food Truck Festival I may have also eaten a whole pizza, a giant ice cream sundae & a root beer float. Hopefully I can roll myself to the gym on Monday!!!

Lately to curb my chocolate cravings (when I'm not pretending to be at the Food Truck Festival) I make this amazing Chocolate Banana Almond Butter Smoothie.
1 Frozen Banana
1 Tbs unsweetened cocoa
2 Tbs Almond Butter (I want to try Justin's maple Almond but its like $13 a jar)
2 Tbs Cream of Coconut (Doesn't make it coconutty, just adds sweetness)
1 c unsweetened coconut milk
10 ice cubes
Blend

Here's Mia's carrot mango smoothie too!
SO DELICIOUS!!!!

Wesley Crush: 17 Months

You're still not walking but that doesn't stop you from getting into and onto everything. A few days ago I found you on the art table painting our walls a lovely shade of fuchsia.  You are double jointed & always bend your fingers down at the 1st joint. It's very odd.  I mentioned it to dad & he pointed his weird 1st joint bending finger at me. Apparently its hereditary. You weigh 21 lbs.
Right this second you have a high fever & runny nose. I held you until 3:30am this morning because you were fussy & wouldn't sleep. **We went to the docter after a 2nd brutal up all nite & you were diagnosed w croup:(  You love to dance & shake your hips. When you learn something new you'll say,  I did it & clap your hands.
You love to eat & have started insisted on feeding yourself with a spoon. It's pretty messy. As you can see, you take your O's very seriously. Drinking mostly from a sippy cup, still eating whatever weput in front of you. Except steamed broccoli. You're not a fan. You have 5 teeth, 2 on top 3 on bottom. You have 4 molars coming in & you're still our sunny sweetheart. Wearing 18 month clothes. As your hair gets longer it gets curlier & curlier
YOU ARE SUCH A HAM!!!!!! Love you tons Angel Boy!!!!!!!
