Post love day

Here are some photos from the day yesterday. Little man and I spent a nice morning together. For breakfast I made heart shaped pancakes with raspberry jam and strawberries on the side (which someone didnt want to eat, because he is a picky eater), then we did a few errands together and finally met Daddy at the park for lunch. Little man had such a fun time seeing all the ducks and birds.

(not so sure whether he likes strawberries or not)

The afternoon was a little rough though. A certain little person would not take a second nap and was easily frustrated. When he gets frustrated he tends to bite a lot. We are working on this problem, but it has not been easy. I am trying to remain calm and use positive guidance, but it does test my patience. I know he is biting because of his lack of communication. He is almost a year old and at this stage in development there are a lot of new things going on, learning to stand, walk, talk. I just need to remember all this and to try to be calm with him. I will just have to keep showing him that it hurts me when he bites and hope that he will outgrow it.

I spent the evening with my hubby. We had a nice dinner together and then watched a movie. Just a nice, quiet lowkey Valentine's Day.

You are still a picky eater/ you haven't tried meat yet/you still like to eat yogurt/you are still tall and skinny/you dont like to wear hats anymore, but mommy tries anyway/you sleep through the night now (thank goodness for that)/ you are super attached to your baby doll/ you think everything is a drum/ you like to dance to mommy's belly dance music/ you never stop/ you have so much energy/ you stood by yourself/ you went to storytime for the first time/ your learning how to stack the rings on the ring stacker/ you love to moo like a cow/ we took you to the fair for the first time/ you are very focused when you want to be/ you are determined/ you are strong-willed/ you are very happy most of the time/ you like to be outside/ you take morning walks with your mommy/ you're funny/

Saturday random thoughts

Making Valentine Crafts.
Making heart handwarmers, such a sweet simple gift for Valentine's
Making felt heart garlands. Another simple ans satisfying craft
Wanting so bad to learn how to needle felt
Cant believe my little one will be 1 year old in about 6 weeks.
Feeling overwhelmed
Dreaming about my future
Missing the seasons
Want to start making my little man some clothes
