I am cooking again! Although this time it isn't for me... Chase reaped the benefits (at least I hope they are benefits ;~)
My beautiful creation cooking away!
Onions, mushrooms, potatoes and spinach mash... there should be a better name... SMOP... it could work. I digress. Contrary to Chase's expression, he really liked this stuff! He took down that entire bowl! The great thing is there is a lot of leftover so lunch is pretty much made for the week ;~) Thank goodness because patience isn't really Chase's strong suit right now.
In other wonderful news Chase actually put himself back to sleep during a nap! I watched the drama unfold on my video monitor. He woke up after 40 minutes and my heart dropped. I was so sad thinking that he would be in a cranky mood the rest of the day. I didn't get up right away because he has to stay in his crib for at least an hour (mom's rule)... I watched him get up, jump up and down, sit down, re-paci himself, lay down, get up, lay down and stay down! I was so shocked that he actually did it! YAY for my big boy!
I can't believe we are fast approaching his first birthday. I look back and pictures from the early days and just stare in disbelief. He was so tiny and helpless then... I almost can't reconcile that the 2 are the same baby. He is so close to walking... I think it might be soon that he takes his first steps! What a journey babies go through in that first year!
