Cheers to Cheerios

Like most kids his age, Knox is a fan of Cheerios. We keep a container of them in his bag all the time, but he has recently discovered that it is way more fun to feed your Daddy Cheerios, than it is to feed them to yourself.

What, you mean you want this Cheerio? Too bad, I’m eating it.

Well, since you’re sad, I guess you can have one.

Here ya go!

Wait a minute, where did that thing go?

O. There it is.

Daddy, I just want to take a closer look at this before I commit to giving it to you.

I think I’ll keep it.

Ha! You can see Trevor starting to say “NOOO!” in that last picture. Knox grabbed that thing out of Trevor’s mouth so fast, he didn’t even have a chance to move his head to stop him. I was cracking up. Not the most sanitary thing ever, but, hey, worse things have happened.

These pictures were taken after Knox had a run-in with our metal fireplace screen on Friday night. Let’s just say that Knox decided he needed to climb it and the screen disagreed. He ended up with it on top of him and sported a huge knot just over his eyebrow. It scared me half to death, and I felt absolutely awful about it. That’s one of those moments as a parent where you feel like total scum for letting something happen to your sweet baby. I know he’ll get bumps and bruises, but man, I wish I could prevent all of them.

In weaning/ sleeping news, Knox is doing awesome. Saturday, he actually slept from 10:30 to 7:30! I was thrilled! He was definitely put down earlier than that but rebelled. Oh well, at least he got good sleep. He woke up a couple times last night, but is going for nice long stretches. We also found something that he LOVES to drink- Stonyfield Organic Yogurt Smoothies for babies. He has never reacted to something like he did to that. I gave him one yesterday, and he chugged the whole cup in two minutes!! He will gulp down water, but has never drank a whole glass of something at once before. I think we have a winner! He’s already had a whole one this morning with a little whole milk added, so I think this will be our method of getting milk into him until he’s acclimated to whole milk (which we’ll be gradually mixing in). He does like soy milk better than whole milk at this point, so we’ll keep giving him some of that, too.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

    That’s so great on the sleeping/weaning thing! Isn’t it like a whole new world when you are getting more than a couple hour’s of sleep? Amazing! Enjoy your funny little guy, he’s so cute.

    Okay, well I can top your “feeling like a horrible mother” story, because I just got back from….the ER with my one year old (and 4 year old in tow). He got 2 stitches in the area between his mouth and chin. So, guess what? I win the Worst Mother Today award. Hope that helps how you feel! :)

      Oh no! I hope your little one is okay now! I was worried we’d have to go to the ER, but his doctor’s office said just to keep an eye on him throughout the night, waking him every two hours. Stress!!
