A Proud Moment in Motherhood!

We have been delighting in such joy at our house lately. I’m proud to announce that little man can officially walk!! I’m such a proud mama and my husband is such a proud daddy. A few weeks back little man took his first four steps toward his dad. It was so magical that we were all together to see it happen. Since then, he really didn’t walk. About a week ago my husband calls to me “he’s walking” and when I popped my head around the corner he had stopped and sat down. I didn’t get to see anything! Then a few days ago little man was at it again. My husband decided to try and “bribe” little man into walking. Recently my sweetheart got a new wallet and wanted to pass on his old one to little man. So, he stood up little man and dangled the old wallet in front of our little guy. Soon, little man took a few steps in order to reach the wallet. Dad moved it further away, little man took a few more steps. And now little man is walking every day and all over the house. We are so proud of him and he is so proud of himself.

Here is a short video of little man walking that I took the other day.

MOPS and a boo boo bunny

Little man and I went to a program called MOPS today. It stands for Mothers Of Pre-Schoolers. We learned about first aid and made this boo boo bunny. We now know what to do for CPR, in case of burns, fevers, seizures, allergic reactions, and even a knocked out tooth.

How to make a boo boo bunny
You’ll need a washcloth, rubber band, and a ribbon. Googly eyes, nose and tail are optional. You may not want them if you’re child would try to eat them.

It is easier to make one of these bunnies if you’re washcloth is nice and square and also thin. You can see the comparison at the bottom. The white bunny is made of a thin washcloth and the purple bunny was a little thicker.

Take your washcloth and roll it up diagonally.
Fold in half, then bend up.
Put rubber band around to secure.
Tie ribbon around to hide the rubber band.

To use, place an ice cube in the hole at the round bottom end of the bunny and place on your boo boo.
