It has been way too long since I have updated the blog! So much has happened since mid July, so let me try to catch everyone up.
Jacob is sitting up on his own, crawling up a storm, and even pulling himself to standing. He has tried to take a few steps while holding on to the couch, but can't quite figure it out. I think we are going to have a super early walked though! I am not ready for my baby to grow up so fast though. Jacob has also started on solids since turning 6 months. He has tried avocado, oatmeal, peas, bananas, sweet potatoes, applesauce, and prunes. Prunes and oatmeal seem to be his favorites so far. At school he is also trying to steal cookies from the older kids, but can't figure out how to chew them!
Speaking of school, this is the beginning of our third week of school. Jacob is in the Parent's Morning Out A class and Myers is in Parent's Morning Out B class. Myers is learning so much in his class. He has been singing all kinds of new songs like "Humpty Dumpty," "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star," and "Zip a Dee Doo Da." In our Bible curriculum, we are learning about how God made everything, and Myers has informed me that God made the sun-shiny day, water, milk, and all the animals. Jacob is having fun playing with all the other kids and the musical toys in his classroom. He also did is first art project (finger painting with baby food with food coloring in it)!
Myers is potty training and doing pretty well. Of course he has accidents here and there, but he is making it to the bathroom more often than not. He has a rewards chart that we put a sticker on every time he goes to the potty and he is getting to pick out a hot wheel tonight. He also gets 3 M&M's every time he goes to the potty. This is also helping him learn his colors because he has to tell me the color of the M&M's before he gets them!
Our garden has been quite productive lately. We have lots of cherry tomatoes and we have been able to eat home grown okra and green beans several different times. The sweet corn harvest was delicious as well.
