No More Monkeys Jumping on the Bed...

Well apparently my monkey hasn't grasped the concept of that story yet! Today is only the second day of the week and I have had to sign TWO parent slips at school.  Monday I had to sign a slip because Connor decided that he was going to jump on his cot during nap time.  Obviously he didn't think of the consequences and fell off and bumped his head.  He had a pretty good size goose egg on his head, which is starting to look a lot better tonight.

You can't really see the bump in the picture, but it's above his left eye.

Then today when I left work I told Ashley "I hope I don't have to sign another form anytime soon". I spoke too soon, way too soon!  So this is how todays little incident went...Connor and his friend both got to the slide (on the playground) at the same time.  Connor felt like he should go first, so he pushed his friend down (which is a definite NO NO).  The friend was very upset and grabbed Connor's arm and BIT him!!! Now this is a definite NO NO also, but on the other hand I think it gave Connor a chance to feel a bite (since he has a little biting problem himself). 

Can't miss the bite marks here!!!

Not too mention, on Sunday night Connor slipped in front of the laundry room and busted his lip open.  It has just been one thing after another for him this week.  I think he just needs to be put in a bubble so nothing can happen to him!
You definitely can't see the busted lip, but he is just cute I could squeeze him all the time!

Look at that tooth!

And just for fun tonight I decided to dress Connor up in his one and only smocked outfit.  Matt absolutely HATES smocked outfits for little boys so I haven't pushed the issue much.  But when you get one as a gift, there's nothing he can say about it!  Here's Connor in his cute little outfit (which he'll probably wear for Easter).

Photos, Photos and More Photos

So here are a few pictures from the past week.  I don't have a new photo editor on my computer yet, so please don't judge me on the red eyes! 

Connor was playing at the mall in the jungle gym that they have.

Everybody loves a naked baby! Look at that attitude.

And I saved the best for last.  Lately, Connor has really started to do his fake smile and he thinks it is absolutely hilarious (I definitely agree with him)!!!!

Look at those teeth!

Oh how I LOVE him so MUCH!!!

On the move...

That is pretty much how you can sum up my life these days. I feel like I never have a chance to sit down while Connor is awake. Let's take today for example, we met Gigi and Big Daddy at Starbucks to pick lil C up (he had spent the night). Well, I was that mom who had an uncontrolable child screaming and running around. For those of you who don't know me, this makes me feel extremely anxious because I never wanted to be that parent! Needless to say, after 3 laps of chasing Connor around, we left.

I always remember seeing people in the mall or airports with their child on "leashes" and I said to myself I will NEVER be that parent. I guess you should never say never! I can definitely see why they had their children on "leashes" now. Ever since Connor started walking he seems to think that he can do wherever he wants.

I have no pictures because I didn't have time to get my camera out of my purse! I will try to get some new ones up this week.

Sitting on the dock by the bay. . .

Today we went to have Connor's pictures taken with some ducklings.  They turned out absolutely adorable and I am so proud to say that none of the ducklings were injured during the photo session! (Connor hasn't quite learned how to be gentle) Here are some of the pictures. . .

Show Us Your Life- Typical Day

Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner

A typical day for me is very consistent throughout the work week.  Matt and I have rotate getting up with Connor in the mornings.  I get up about 6 and then go upstairs and wake up Connor (I could not rely on him as an alarm clock).  Connor has his milk sippy cup and watches Nick Jr. in his play pen while I get ready. 

I hop in the shower and get ready (I'm usually always rushing around).  Connor is the last to get ready for the day.  Then it's off to school for him about 7:20 and then I race to work trying to get there by 8.  The work day is not very exciting/eventful so I will not bore you with those details. 

I get off about 4:30 and I head straight to pick up Connor.  We usually get home about 5:30 and then it's time for me to start cooking dinner.  I try to cook things that are simple and quick because Connor is usually starving.  Matt entertains Connor while I cook and we usually get to eat about 6ish.  After dinner, it's either bath time (every other night) or play time.  We start getting Connor ready for bed about 6:45 and he goes to bed no later than 7:15. 

After Connor goes to bed, I catch up on my shows and get everything ready for the next morning.  I try to go to bed by 10 otherwise I am very grumpy the next morning.  That's a typical day for me!

What are you eating?....NO!

Now I know that boys like to eat bugs, but I was not prepared for it this soon!  I saw Connor sitting on the floor and all of a sudden he shoved something in his mouth.  I said, "Connor, what are you eating?" and he just looked at me and kept chewing.  I knew I hadn't given him a snack and there were no goldfish lying around because the dogs are such good vaccuum cleaners.  So I rushed over and fished around in his mouth.  To my amazement out comes a ladybug...yes that's right, my son was eating a ladybug.  Of course I was completely grossed out and starting yelling for Matt to throw it away. 

Connor also discovered something else tonight, the dog crates!  I really think that this form of daycare would be much cheaper...I'm just kidding of course.  But it was a new game to Connor and he just couldn't get enough of it.  Then Cooper started to play along and he would lock her in the cage.  He'd let her out and then he would get in.  Needless to say it has been a very eventful night and I am exhausted.

Don't worry, it's not locked!

Haircut and Black Eye...All in one day!

We had a good weekend and Connor grew up right in front of my eyes.  Every time I look at Connor, I see him transforming into a little boy.  It makes me sad a little bit, but on the other hand I love to see how his personality is developing more and more.

This is a perfect example of why we have gates.  The cable guy was up and down so much we removed the gate...it didn't take Connor long to come up with a new game!

This weekend Connor had another one of his firsts in life.  Lately Connor's hair has started to resemble a mullet, which is not cute (not even on a baby)! So it was time for his first haircut and he did great.  I have to admit that I really didn't like the place where he got it cut so next time he will just go to Matt's guy.  Putting the place aside, Connor surprisingly sat still and was very cooperative.  Not that he isn't ever like that but it's kind of like a crap shoot on what his demendor is going to be for certain outings. 

I think the key to the good haircut was his paci.  Connor usually only gets his paci at nap time and nighttime but I thought I should pack it just incase of a meltdown.  Well thank goodness I am such a good planner!  By the end of his appointment he had been demulletfied and he looked like a little boy!

As you can see he is absolutely thrilled!

I think he is wondering how much longer he is going to have to sit there.

Later that day Connor was running around (or I should say walking fast) and BAM he tripped and fell right into the TV tray.  At first I thought he hit his mouth/teeth, but I quickly noticed the bruise under his eye.  Bless his heart, it bruised so fast and you could tell it hurt! 

This is not too long after it happened, he bruised really quick.

Notice, no mullet!

These are my favorite pajamas...I just want to squeeze him!
His Granny got him these for Christmas.

By the end of the night he had a bruise and a bump.
The next day we went to Target and I got were stares.
This is just one of the many bruises to come!
(I'm not used to the fearlessness of boys)
