The kids got this train table for christmas and when you put the lid on it is just a fun little table to color on and stuff. I was excited because we put the lid on it for the first time and turned on Cars movie and got out the big Cars coloring books. The kids Loved it!
Alex is a very picky eater so I have been trying to be creative to get him to eat more of a variety of food. So for a snack the other day I made this monster face. Jaxson loved it and ate the whole thing. The 2nd picture is what Alex did to his.
The Binky is Gone!
This is a past picture of Alex with his 2 favorite things, his binky and his blanky. It shows him doing his weird habit of sticking the blankets tied edges in his nose and swirling it around. Weird and gross, I know! A few weeks ago I found out just how comforting his nose picking thing is to him. His stomach was hurting really bad for about a week and he was miserable and cried all the time. When I couldn't calm him down I would take his blanket and swirl it around his nose and his head would immediatly start bobbing up and down and his eyelids would flutter and he would just fall asleep! I mean within like 10 seconds! It was really funny! Anyway, I have been tring to figure out how we were going to take his binky away from him for awhile now because I was sure it would not be easy! But one day I just couldnt find it anywhere and so I made him go to sleep without it and it wasnt as big a fight as I thought it would be so I decided it would be lost for good. He only asked for it for 3 nights and then one morning he told me "mom, you give me a binky, but binkys are for babys. I'm a big boy. I don't need a binky." I was amazed! And better yet, I realized the other day that we were giving him his blanky everynight, but he wouldn't stick it in his nose. So I just started not even giving him his blanky and he hasnt said anything! I guess the binky and blanky were a package deal! The only downside is he used to go to bed very easy and now I have to lay down with him. Hopefully when he's feeling better he wont need that anymore. So I guess my Alex is turning into a big boy! Now, if only I could potty train him.
