End of a Good Year

Today marks the end of 2010, and what a year it has been! I have been putting together my blog book and reading through all of the memories and seeing all of the pictures throughout the year. How much my little baby is growing into a big boy! He has learned to walk, to talk, to laugh, to have so much fun. I have learned more patience than I ever thought possible. I grant that to the grace of God! I hope I am being the best mother I can be. I know that I am not perfect, but I strive to show my son how to act to others and how to grow up to be a nice boy. I can't wait to see what next year brings!

You're special Chesley

That's what we tell him when he is being especially silly or especially bad! I can't believe how much someone not quite two years old can speak and understand, but then he can still have a major tamtrum when I won't let him have a piece of candy at bedtime or when I want to change his diaper. He just has no self control over his emotions. Let's hope it comes with time.

He is really enjoying his toys he got for Christmas.

The funniest thing is the trains. He will insist that me or Nathan "play choo-choo" with him. Then he gets mad when we touch any of the trains! Right now he is in time out for hitting me with a train. He got mad at me for telling him not to throw the trains across the roon. He is screaming "MOMMA!! HOLD YOU!" This afternoon is not looking pleasant.

He repeats everything we say. When he gabbers, I'll say, "What are you talking about?" And then he repeats, "What are you talking about Momma?" It is so funny! And this is cute too.
"Chesley, tell me about your birthday."
"I'm having a birthday!"
"How old are you gonna be?"
Sometimes, he'll take it a step further.
"What kind of cake are you gonna have?"
"EMO!" (Elmo)
And sometimes he'll show you a random number of fingers trying to imitate us doing two fingers.

I just can't believe how smart he is. I guess the badness just came along with the smartness. Oh well. He is special!

Help Jessica bring her son home!

My heart has been touched by Jessica's desire to adopt Daniel. Please read more about her story at Let's all follow along with her and encourage her on this journey. She is a local mother with 4 children (one in heaven) that longs to bring home a special boy from across the world. If you can, please donate using the chip-in widget on my blog or go to her blog and use the one there. Every little bit counts towards bringing Daniel home. You could make this a Christmas present to someone who already has everything!

At home

Yesterday and today me and Boo stayed home. I just have a yucky cold, but it sure does zap my energy away. I know I will probably feel better later today, but right now I just want to stay home. I don't get sick time for being off, but I'm sure we'll make things work out somehow. Boo has been very clingy and lovey and nurses a lot lately. Yesterday we watched movies and napped and nursed all day, like a newborn tiny baby. I do wonder if he does that because I work or if he would be just the same if I stayed home every day.

He had a really rough time the other night. I picked him up from school and he had been crying, not normal for him. That should have been my red flag. Then we went to Walmart. He was cranky the whole time. I held him and pushed the buggy and he cried most of the time. Then when it was time to get in his carseat, he would not. He screamed and cried, "Booby!! I hold you Momma!!" I held him for about 15 minutes, then tried again, same thing. I spanked him and finally got him in his seat after 15 more minutes. He screamed more. We drove through the parking lot, then he started vomiting from crying and sreaming. I wanted to have a nervous breakdown. I had to stop and clean him up. I was very close to calling someone to come and help me. Maybe I should have. But I cleaned him up, held him for a few minutes, then took 15 minutes of forcing him in the carseat. Then we got home and Nathan had to clean up the mess.
