How to!!!


How to teach your toddler to eat with a spoon!

Step 1

Spoon food into a bowl in front of your toddler. Hand him one spoon while you keep another.

Step 2

Let your baby play with the spoon while you use your own to feed the toddler. If thy decide to put the spoon in the food as well, let them.

Step 3

Fix yourself a small bowl of food to eat in front of your toddler. Make sure he also has a bowl and spoon in front of them. Watching you eat will show them what to do. Even if he doesn't understand how to scoop, simply touching the spoon to food will transfer food to his mouth.

Step 4

Place one piece of dry cereal on your toddler' s spoon. This will teach her the right way to hold the spoon without dropping it's contents. Using dry cereal is much less stressful than using liquid.

Step 5

Pour some soup into a bowl. Give your toddler the bowl and a baby spoon. Let him use the spoon to transfer liquid from the bowl to his mouth.

Step 6

practice practice practice!!!

Kael is 19 months and almost always uses his spoon for eating!

Not my babies daddy addition of not me Monday.



Not my babies daddy addition of not me Monday.

I wanted to do a not me Monday on my babies daddy, I will call him M

It was not M who used mango papaya shampoo on Kael in his bath last night because he couldn't find the baby shampoo!

It was not M who used and old tee-shirt to diaper Kael when he couldn't find the cloth diapers.

It was not M who after his shower tried to put Kaels hooded towel on only to realize that it was much to small but used it anyway!!

It was not M who changed Kaels diaper before Nap time but forgot to put on a new one!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As you can tell M doesn't do much parenting of Kael but when he does he tries his hardest!!!

Photography! Do I have what it takes??

Lately I have been thinking about starting to take pictures of peoples kids and family for money. But I wonder if I have what it takes? I have been doing pictures for friends and family for free and they love it but I wonder if people would actually pay for pictures?

I love black and white photos?

I love taking pictures of my own son?

But Will I love it just as much if its for someone elses kid?

On the other hand I could use some extra cash!



But are my pictures good enough?


I have all the equipment I need camera ,flashes, some really good props like the chair in the above picture. I would invest in a nice back drop. I think maybe I could do this.
What do you think?

Cloth Diapers

I'm too sexy for my cloth diaper too sexy for my cloth diaper

Keal is so silly!
He loves to dance and when he is wearing his styling cloth diapers it just takes cuteness to a whole new level.

Daredevil!

"Kael has no fear and incredible balance!" said his physio assessment.

Kael goes to physio twice a month and now he is showing off his strength and newly acquired skills.

It scares the hell out of me!
