And my sweet boy is getting older too...his 6 month birthday is on Friday, and so we've widened his eating choices (previously consisting of right or left) with some rice cereal.
Mommy Moment, Episode 1
In this episode, Erin hopes that her breath smells like poop.
The episode starts at 0530 this morning, when Derek was eating the early-bird special and decided to poop as well. This isn't my favorite thing because then I have to turn on lights and wake both of us up more than we have to be to do the changing. But it has to be done, so... fast forward to 0800 when he wakes up for the day. Yuck, smells like poop in his room. So I change him again. Then I feed him, and he poops again. Come on kid, can't you get it all out at one time? Then I get in the shower. Alex is watching her morning show and Derek is sitting in the bathroom in his bouncy seat. I get out of the shower and I swear I smell more poop. This is when the mommy moment happens. I think to myself, maybe he didn't really poop again, I haven't brushed my teeth yet maybe it's just my breath.
There you have it-- I wished that my breath smelled like poop. Insane, isn't it?
By the way, it wasn't my breath.

Alex is into pretending these days. Every day she tells us which character she is for that day, and the rest of us too. This week she has been Tyrone, Mommy is Pablo, Daddy is Austin, and poor Derek has to be Tasha. (These are all Backyardigans) She's very serious about her character and wont answer to Alex. She'll ask when Austin is coming back from work and tell me to change Tasha's pants. It's funny!

I digress...I'll put up a video clip soon of this latest accomplishment. For the hour after Derek first rolled over, Alex showed us many times how she can roll over too! What a talented family we have :)
