Wow. It's February ... we're one month closer to spring!
Me - Jen, 28
DH - Al, 38
DS - Gabe, 13 months
Gabe woke up earlier than usual this morning because he completely leaked through his diaper. I guess I'm about ready to go up a size, which is killing me because the No. 4 diapers have 20 less diapers in a box than the No. 3. Of course, DH has been saying for some time that Gabe looks like he's wearing a Speedo in the No.3s, so I guess it's about time.
Otherwise, we're doing well. Gabe's slowly getting better at talking. We watch "Ready, Set, Learn" on TLC in the morning, and Gabe recognizes Peep when he comes on, except Gabe says "Pep," instead.
His new favorite item seems to be the turtle beanbag I bought him. It was on clearance at Target for $10, and so far, has been worth the money.
We continue to have meltdowns, but that comes with the territory. I am so, so glad I taught him to sign "all done," because we were having such a hard time communicating at the table. He no longer throws food because he just has to sign "all done" to get taken out of his chair.
