Things that Peanut Can Do

He has learned how to:
identify his tummy, ears and nose (most of the time)
blow kisses
sit down when asked.

We're told a lot that he's a very happy baby. I don't really have that many babies to compare so it's hard for me to know if he's any happier than most babies. But, I will say that he doesn't meet a stranger. When we go to the store, he looks at people until they smile at him. He will wave and wave and wave.

He hasn't quite learned how to walk yet but he's cruising everywhere. When he forgets himself, he lets go and will stand for a moment on his own. I'm sure he'll be walking soon and we'll wish that he was only crawling again.

We're getting ready for the Thanksgiving holiday. We're going to have 13 people here for dinner (including Peanut). I'm looking forward to it. My Mom and I are planning the menu and starting to figure out what needs to be cooked when. I'm pretty certain I'll need to start cooking on Tuesday! She and Pop get here that evening. SM, MAH, BPH and wondermuss get here on Wednesday. MTH's parents get here Thursday morning.

After that, we'll be getting ready for the Christmas holidays. Although he won't be totally aware of what's going on, I'm sure he'll be very excited because everyone else is excited. Plus, he'll get extra attention since there will be so many people around.

Peanut is 1 Today (he was on 9/7/09 when I wrote it originally)

A year ago today at this time, he was almost 3 hours old. I think right about now I was being wheeled to my room and he was in the nursery getting his first bath. MTH was at home eating pizza and sleeping. He had been up with me since midnight. My friend, Britgirl, came over later that day. She said that Peanut was the youngest baby she'd ever seen. He certainly was for me too!

It's been a fun and hard year. We didn't get much sleep for the first 9 months. Peanut just couldn't figure out how to sleep 10-12 hours in row.

I never finished this post but decided to post this short piece that I did write. I'll keep trying to get back into blogging.

Of Course

When I think about coming to do a post, I can't think of anything to say. I'll be back. I promise.

Peanut's First Foods

Logan has been enjoying trying new foods. Well, he didn't really like the rice cereal but once we started on the fruits and veggies, he's been chowing down. So far, he's tried and liked butternut squash, sweet potatoes, avocado, bananas, carrots and yogurt. The foods we're planning to try next are asparagus, cottage cheese and actual cheese.

Although he loves to put things in his mouth, he doesn't have any interest in feeding himself. He's happy as a clam to sit there and let me feed him. He's still a mess when we're done.

The only downside that I see to solid foods is what comes out the other end. Quite a bit smellier than before. I guess that now I can dream of one of the next big milestones - potty training :)

That brown rice cereal, not so good.

Mmmm - carrots are good!

I think I like butternut squash too.

Isn't he beautiful?

ETK took this beautiful picture of Peanut on Sunday when she came to visit. I just love looking at it! It's going to be my wallpaper at work. He may have some teeth in that mouth very soon. He seems to be teething now.

Peanut's Growing!

He had a well baby doctor's appointment yesterday. He weighs 14 pounds
7 ounces. He is 27 1/4 inches! So, he's tall and skinny. We need to
buy the next carseat soon. We also have to get this house babyproofed.
