Sitting Still


Soren is a chameleon these days. He changes his mind on absolutely everything, a million times per day. Foods that have always been his favourite are suddenly tossed on the floor, and I struggle to get through a meal without him having a complete breakdown.

After a rough week last week - crying non-stop every morning at breakfast, refusing to eat, and refusing to pretty much do anything I wanted, the weekend arrived and brought with it our lovely, happy, baby. It was wonderful! He had a sleepover at Amma and Grandpa's on Friday night while we went to a house concert. I've never been to one before, but I would highly recommend going if you ever get the chance. The musicians were great and it's so relaxing to watch live music in the comfort of someone's house.

On Sunday morning we had a couple friends over for brunch, and Soren devoured his blueberry pancakes with gusto. We were relaxing at the table when he brought over his playdoh, and I was thrilled to get to sit with my little guy for a full ten minutes. I love watching his face light up as he learns something new, or breaks out into a song. Row, row, row your boat is a current favourite, tied with Jingle Bells and the ABC's. Linking up with the Jellibean Journals today - Happy Monday!

My boy is 16.5 months. I'm dealing with the mood swings, too! Food on the floor, "NO", mini temper tantrums, etc... I feel your pain. I love the days when he is in a good mood!

I'm really happy that Soren was a happy baby again for the weekend. The house concert sounds like fun. What type of music did you listen to?
