Mr. Independent

I was just realizing that I haven't posting anything lately, and so I started looking back over my past week or so to see if there's anything I missed. Aside from Connor's current teething woes (poor fella!) and our house search (more to come on that) I realized I had taken some cute footage of Connor's new independent eating escapades.

It's all Papa's fault, really.

While we were in SC Papa was sharing his ice cream with Connor, and he let Connor hold the spoon himself. This isn't a huge mess when it comes to scooped ice cream - it's pretty firm and Connor can't do much damage. But what about baby cereal or yogurt? Ever since we got home, Connor isn't happy being "fed" anymore. He's got to do it himself like a big boy. Yea. This can be quite an undertaking when it comes to the clean-up department. However, like any good mom I'm willing to let him give it a shot. (It's not like I have a choice, really...)

Ahhh, yes, the "I feed myself" stage. Yeah, not a fan of that myself! That smile Connor gave you in the video was really cute, and he just looks like a little king sitting in his throne with his attendants by his side.

So cute - let him make a mess. He will be leaving to go on a mission before you know it. All my children had fun with yogurt - lots of fun. LOL

Papa's fault...no way...

This is payback for you letting the girls dress him up last time...

As said by Jess and Amber Dawn...it is THAT TIME---independence strikes...free roaming of the house...trying to look for an exit he can go out and conquer the world...

CHARGE....run amuck...cause havoc,
Get even with older sistes...

Now is the time when parents hair starts turning quickly and with much dispatch...

GOOD LUCK....

Papa
