Ryan has always teased me for loving cereal. I pretty much eat it everyday. There have been days that I eat if for breakfast, lunch and dinner (not often, but it has happened!) I think it's a Graham thing. Allison has followed in the tradition and loves cereal as well. Her favorites include Shredded Wheat, Life, and Rice Crispies. She has enjoyed it from the time she ate solid food. Zachary on the other hand has resisted cereal from the beginning. I'm not sure why because he is not a picky eater and loves eating what Allison eats. When he first started eating solid food I would offer him dry Cheerios and he just spit them out. He refused to even touch the stuff each and every time I offered it to him. Knowing he has a sweet tooth, I would try and give him the most sugary kind possible (with and without milk) and never any luck. But yesterday Ryan tricked him into trying a bite of Golden Grahams (I'm not sure how) and he looked up and said "I like cereal!" I couldn't believe my ears. He ate a whole bowl of Golden Graham and loved every minute of it! For the past two and a half years I have been waiting for the moment for us to all sit down and have a bowl of cereal, and it has finally happened. The things that make a mom happy! I don't drink the milk from the bowl (I promise) he learned that from his big sister!

Joshua loves taking baths! I probably should give him more considering how much he spits up but sometimes there are just not enough hours in a day! Tonight after his bath he was content just laying naked and watching Alli and Zachy run wild in the bedroom. He was just taking it all in. I love the expression on his face. I think he his thinking, "I can't wait to join in the fun someday!" Along with "You guys are crazy!"

The weather around here has been pretty unpredictable. One day it feels like summer and the next it is cold and raining. Yesterday was wet and winter like, so we were pretty much home bound. Allison decided to put on a show which is always entertaining! Notice the two different shoes. We worked on potty training with Zachy. He is doing really well, but still has a hang up about going #2 in the toilet! And Joshua just smiled at it all!

Well, two months have flown by. Joshua is showing more his personality and is a sweet baby. He still is a spitter, but I have just accepted the fact that my couches are ruined, laundry is piled to the ceiling, his hair is sometimes crusted and his outfits are never dry. But all that said, I love him to death. Joshua gives lots of smiles, especially after he eats and it just melts my heart. He had his two month appointment and weighs 9lbs. 6 oz. which is not quite the 10th percentile. He is still a little peanut! More pictures to come, I promise.
