I started the weekend off with my very first blogger "blind date". Amanda and I had our 2nd babies within days of eachother and our 2-year-olds are only a few months apart, so we decided it was time to finally meet! For the most part, Micah did really well. He did a great job sharing with Diedre and I think they had fun running around in the backyard together.
Playing teeball - Diedre as catcher/runner and Micah as hitter.

Already learning to share :)

The rest of the weekend was spent having yummy BBQ's, shopping and playing at the park. It's been encouraging to see some progress in Micah's behaviour. We've had to become a lot more firm about things that we used to just "let slide". His whining has really improved and he is learning to ask for things like a "big boy" the first time around without me having to remind him. He did start his bedtime marathons again this weekend - getting out of bed over and over and not falling asleep until after 9 most nights. It's frustrating, but I have to be thankful for the things that are going well! One thing that amazed me was how much he ate today since he usually eats like a bird. And he's been picky lately about things that he used to love, but today I convinced him to eat three foods that he hasn't eaten in months and he loved them. So, that's another thing to be thankful for!
It's crazy to see both of my kids in high chairs...
I bought Keziah a really neat new product on the weekend. It's called the Sassy Teething Feeder. See picture below:
It's basically a mesh bag that fits onto a plastic handle. I can put all sorts of different foods inside the bag and she can chew at it all she wants without the risk of choking. Today I put a slice of fresh peach inside and let her try it. Once she figured it out she really started sucking and gnawing at it.
So, to end off, here's a video of her enjoying her new mode of eating...
