Oh…This and That.

I’m finding myself feeling more and more like I have absolutely nothing to say some days.  C’mon creative Leah brain, do your job! Silas has taken to his new bed rather nicely.  He was getting up yesterday and bringing toys into his bed when he should have been napping but he eventually settled down to […]

I Do It

Wow, a vocabulary breakthrough has happened this morning. Silas just put his own sentence together using his own understanding of the English language. He said “I do it” when he wanted to feed himself. Everything is covered in oatmeal as a result. I’m so happy that he’s starting to use sentences. So exciting. Yesterday he […]

Oh Well

I think I’m softening. I’ve definitely inherited my mother’s “oh well” personality. I still call her after bad dreams and I hear an “oh well, it was just a dream”. Usually when Silas is freaking out about something stupid I’m usually the same way, “oh well”. I’ve never felt bad for letting him cry at […]

1 Week and 4 Days Left

Well, the baby is still inside of me.  I was hoping he’d come out yesterday but I guess he’s content to stay put for a while longer.  He’s welcome to come out now, I’m feeling very warm feelings towards him and Brent’s feeling ready for him to be out too.  Yesterday I tried some traditional […]

17 Months Old

I’m feeling much better today. I hate days like yesterday, they really suck. Silas is 17 months old this week. Time has really flown by since he turned One. His vocabulary continues to grow each day but I don’t think it’s grown as much as it did last month. His incredible memory when it comes […]

Teething Never Ends

My darling Silas is starting to have a hard time again with his teethies.  At least we had a few weeks of really happy baby.  The poor kiddo, I can’t believe he’s cut 8 teeth since Christmas, the two molars are hardly cut and the other two are starting to get a bit white on […]

16 Months Old

I just realized that Silas is now 16 months old.  Oh to have a birthday every month, I guess we’ve all been through it though.  I can’t believe the changes that happen from month to month.  This past month his vocabulary has really taken off.  He’s learned up, down, shower, water, food, hungry, nose, eyes, […]

Deciphering The Code

The time has come, and I must say I’ve been looking forward to this stage in Silas life. He’s starting to say more and more things and now he has his own words that aren’t so much…English. So, it’s time to decipher the code! (I feel like I need theme music in this part) I […]
