Monday's Letter to my Little Bear-Ninth Edition

Happy Monday, Little Bear! It's a holiday week. Friday is the *Fourth of July*!! We're going out to Aunt Audra & Uncle Kane's to watch the fireworks...if you can stay awake that long, I'll have some stories and pictures to share next Monday :)

It was another fun week of FIRSTS for you! Just when I think there isn't anything else you could possible do, you come up with something. This week you started "coughing" for attention! Last Monday evening we went for a walk and I noticed you were doing this funny little coughing thing, but I couldn't tell if it was real or you had just discovered another talent. I took you to Grandma Sandy's on Tuesday and told her about it. By the time I picked you up that afternoon, both her and Grandpa Rusty were convinced you were just doing it to be funny.

You've also found your TONGUE this week!My, oh my...if you weren't drooling enough before, now that you've constantly got your tongue hanging out, it's 10 times worse!

On Wednesday night we tried round two of the rice cereal by spoon! This time was success!! I held you and Daddy controlled the spoon. It was messy, but you ate it like a champ!

Saturday night, Mommy and Daddy had a date night. We took you out to Grandma and Grandpa's and went to dinner. We weren't gone too long, since we wanted to get you home for bedtime, but it was still nice to have some adult conversation for a little bit. AND for Mommy, it's always nice to use BOTH hands to eat my meal, and to eat it while it's still hot!! This is you and Mommy before date night.
So, since you finally got the spoon thing down, we decided to try some veggies this weekend. You went with Mommy to the store Saturday morning, and we picked out a handful of veggies that looked yummy...Carrots, Sweet Potatoes, Green Beans and Sweet Peas! We decided to start with an orange food. So, Daddy put carrots and sweet potatoes out on the counter and let YOU pick the one you wanted! Here you are making the difficult decision....AND the winner is... ~SWEET POTATOES~

Sunday afternoon we took your bumbo out to the table on the back patio, put on your bib, got the video camera and the digital camera, and we were ready for action! You did so good with the first few bites. We had sweet potatoes everywhere, but it was pretty least we thought so.
Sunday evening we grilled steaks, and you played in your bumbo while Daddy cooked. Here you are with one of your favorite toys. I have no idea why you like this plastic star so much. You have other toys that are so much easier to get in your mouth and softer to chew on, but you always want this!
Have a great week, Little Bear...I can't wait for your first Fourth of July!!
I love you!
