Below is the note that went to the teacher after mommy discovered what her darling child had turned in at school:

I guess Carter was ready for number two foods though. He seemed pretty happy about it.

Also this month, he learned that faces are fun to look at AND play with. When you talk to him now ... he grabs for (and then manhandles) your face. It's somewhat cute ... yet somewhat weird.
He also learned that mommy and daddy make great jungle gyms.

Here is Carter in the "Johnny Jump up" jumper. This was my brothers jumper and then mine.
My favorite part about the Johnny Jump Up isn't that Carter plays and laughs and laughs. It's that the box actually claims that it "frees mothers for LONG periods of time." So, i'm off to get my nails done, thanks Johnny Jump Up.

With that being said, grandma Gottschalk is coming over tonight to babysit ... and mommy and daddy are going to happy hour. Mommy needs a beer. I know that we will only be out for an hour or two - but I am freakishly excited.

Carter has been crabby for DAYS. He isn't so much crying all of the time ... but he is letting out these slow, long moans. The type that makes your sanity slowly slip away ... bit by bit. To the point that I was so frustrated that I actually told him to "suck it." Yup - bad mommy.
As it turns out, he has another tooth coming in and has another ear infection. Say it with me, "Poor little guy." Or, "BAD MOMMY - poor little guy." So he has medication now and plenty of teething toys to chew on.
Here is Carter all bundled and ready to go to the dr's office.
In other news - he crawls now. Backwards ... but it still counts. My kid doesn't have to crawl forward just because society says it's the norm. Screw you society...my kid's gonna crawl backwards all he wants.See - my sanity is gone. Gone

Cleveland (well, Northeast Ohio) was dumped on this past weekend (and continues to get more snow as we speak...er..type). It's finally at the amount of snow required to hide how dirty and nasty Cleveland is. That's why I like winter so much - it hides the nastiness of my city.

Whoever told me that feeding prunes to a baby wasn’t that big of a deal should be shot! I can’t remember who it was…but when I do…that person is getting an earful. I guess I knew that something would happen from prunes…but I didn’t anticipate World War Three exploding in his pants for two days straight.
I was sitting on my couch this morning typing out an email and heard him making poo-ish noises. Well, I looked over just in time to see the leg holes of his pj’s completely fill up with poo – all the way down to his toes. I mean, he could have had leg shaped poo in his pjs for how filled up the legs were. Then poo started to seep out through the fabric.
Needless to say, we went upstairs to get changed and I decided to bath him. And what does my lovely child do then you ask? I’ll tell you – he pees all down the front of me after I pick him up to dry him off after his bath … AND THEN GIGGLES.
If I had to guess, I would think he lost about 2 pounds from this morning’s episode. Just a ball park guess though.

Here - it had been relisted in December and the realtor never called us to let us bid on it. Now, does she think I have anything better to do than make her life a living hell for standing in my way of my dream home? I'm a stay at home mom...I HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO LADY.
Any suggestions on how to get us into this home are welcome. In fact, if you just want the realtors phone number to call her and annoy her - feel free to ask for that too.
Oh IT'S WAR

Uncle Andy bought him this hat. I can't help but think that if I threw a quarter at him - maybe he'd hand me a newspaper. Is that wrong of me?

I probably didn’t have to pack his entire nursery to come with us, but hey – now I know.
