messy baby and projectile slime

JP fed himself breakfast this morrning all on his own. Mommy finally let go and just let him at it, lol. Nice sticky cream of wheat and bananas. I don't know which took longer, lol... the eating of breakfast or the cleanup. While I love watching him explore his world and master new tasks, I'm always a little bit sad. How fast he's growing up :( . I don't want my snuggly little boy to grow up too fast, but he has other ideas, lol. Now if I could only change his mind about dropping everything. I know its fascinating to him, but those lego's hurt!

now I know you are all dying to know what I mean by projectile slime... c'mon ..admit it ;) .

On Thursday JP came down with a cold. I think we went nearly 6 weeks without slime this time. This was a new experience though. You know how when kids sneeze and they get a little slimy? Well this was that 10X worse. He would sneeze so hard that he'd have slime hanging to his chin. I never knew I could move so fast with tissues. I think i developed a new aerobic workout. The only good side was that there was no question that he was clearing out his sinuses well. The bad side is 2 days later I have his cold :(

oh and one final thought.... what is it with babies and water bottles? Mr. Slimy was just handing me toys and wanting my attention, until he got a hold of a water bottle and now is happily playing with it. He's fascinated with them, I don't know if its the look, the crinkle or the shape. On the other hand it makes for an inexpensive toy thats easily replaced.
