Finally Friday


Friday, you are not my friend this week. Hubby will be working quite a bit this weekend, but he will be at the dedication on Saturday and that's all that really matters in the grand scheme of things! Here are my confessions: 

I confess that I am really excited about Bennett's dedication this week at our church. Our whole family will be there to celebrate, and it truly is an amazing ceremony. I want Bennett to grow up loving church and learning all about Jesus, just as I did. This is a great way to start that path in his life. 



I confess that I really missed going to Stroller Strides and swim class this week. Bennett was still getting over his upper respiratory thing that he had going on, and it finally is passing. THANK THE LORD. I didn't want to get anyone sick that we are around at any of these places, so we stayed at home. Tomorrow or Saturday though, I am hoping to get out and about. 



I made some good Brownies for my MIL's birthday on Wednesday. There was really no time to look up some great recipe on Pinterest, so I kinda just did my thing. They were delicious, and only used one bowl. There was no time for extra dishes yesterday, and Lord knows I am the queen of using 10 bowls for one recipe...OOPS!

I confess that I am OVER trying to get Bennett to drink something about of his sippy cup. He can drink out of any of the cups I got him, he can tip it up, suck out of them...the whole shebang. All of a sudden, he pushes the cup away...doesn't want to even try anything out of his cup. If you know of anyway of showing him that what's inside the cup is great stuff LET ME KNOW!

My boy is growing so much! This week alone he has learned to say boo (peek a boo), wave hello (just continues to do it the whole time he is talking to someone), and push himself to the side in his walker. We are continuing to work on saying dada, he has said mama plenty of times...but he has to be close to saying dada right?

  2. Enjoy the dedication this weekend! Our church doesn't do them, but I wish they did. It seems so sweet and special.
    And I wish I had sippy cup tips, but I don't. My older son (now 4) was super stubborn about giving up the bottle (like flat out refused the sippy cup even when it was the only thing offered and chose just not to drink all day) so we let him have his bottle until he was like 16 months and then when we tried it again he transitioned over right away. Our second born son is super easy going. One day we were giving him his usual bottle, then the next day we gave him a straw cup (at like 11 months) and he just never looked back. He uses straw cups and regular sippy cups and we are working on regular cups without a lid too (he's 20 months now). So maybe the straw cup was the difference? But really I think they were just ready at different times.

    Hope you enjoy your weekend!

    1. What did you do when you weaned? Did you just give regular milk in the bottle?

    1. I think it's finally gone! I have seen those cups before, and was curious how kids liked them! I may have to give one a try.

  7. So sorry to hear that your little one has been sick! Hope he has completely bounced back now, and that you'll enjoy a beautiful day celebrating today! Speaking of celebrating....looks like your MIL's birthday was celebrated sweetly! Who doesn't love a delicious one bowl brownie recipe?! Win/yummy win! ;) I can so relate to normally using ten bowls per recipe! lol. Glad you ended up with much less mess this time around! :)
