We have moved bubba from baby food to adult food lately because he has been so interested in what we have to eat each night. He likes to say grace and participate in our meal. On Sunday I went to Babies R Us and got him some stage 3 meals but he hates them. He makes a terrible face when I try to give them to him. He doesn't even beg for more..so you know they are bad. Tonight we had eggplant parm and spaghetti so I gave him some to try. He loved every bite and screamed when the eggplant was gone. He made a terrible mess but enjoyed every bite.
He will be moving up to the next class Feb 7th and they will be giving him the school meal each day. I just hope when they put him in the table with all the other kids he doesn't steal their food. I may need to warn the teachers about what might happen.
Jacob has also learned another fun trick. He can have his very own fort in the bottom of the excisaucer. He takes a few toys in the bottom and plays for a few minutes. At daycare they said he doesn't care if a kid is in the excisaucer or not, he just pushes their legs out of his way and stays in the bottom. :)
I would not trade my boy for anything in this whole world and OHHHH I just love kissing those chubby cheeks.

My holiday break with Jacob started on December 24th and I have to say I was a little nervous. Daycare closed from December 24th until January 3rd and I didn't know if he would get bored with me or I might get a little frustrated with him from time to time. Jacob and I haven't spent more than 3 entire days together since he started daycare in August. I just didn't know what to expect. He doesn't nap during the day, he was starting to crawl, and he didn't have all the toys and friends that he has at daycare. His teacher, Miss Beth, did let him take home his favorite toy over the break and I can't thank her enough. What is Jacob's favorite toy you ask.....a 50 cent beach ball from oriental trading company. LOL! He has played on the floor with that ball everyday and screams in delight when you get it out for him. Even with all the toys he got for Christmas this ball was a wonderful addition to our collection this past week.
Jacob, Andrew and I had a wonderful break together and I am sad to see all of us go back to our "normal" lives on Monday. I don't want to leave him and go back to work. He has made such great strides this past week. He has really started to move and I don't think it will be long until he is really crawling. We even had to put up the baby gate on the main floor because he can move so quickly. He is also starting to babble and "talk" to us so much. Every time he sees something he likes or when he wants our attention he says, "ooooooooo" until he gets to the object or we turn around. One habit he did start this week is being very clingy. I love that he wants me and wants me to hold and play with him all the time, but he is a chunk of a baby and it hurts my back after a while. He has also earned a few nicknames this week like:
1. King Henry: because he sits in his highchair demanding food and to be fed by his servants, I mean parents.
2. Bubba: this isn't a new nickname for him but he is so huge I like to call him bubba. I hope he doesn't start thinking his name is bubba.
3. Turtle: he looks like a little turtle sometimes crawling around on the floor because he sticks his neck out.
I will be interested to see how this week goes at daycare. I hope that he goes back and gets into the groove of things easily. I hope he will not be as sad as I will be on Monday because his chubby and adorable cheeks will not be around for me to kiss.
