Dawson's First Walk in the Snow!

It snowed today! It actually stuck too, I'm surprised! Dawson watched the snow falling a bit but wasn't too interested. Tonight I brought him with me to take garbage out so he could walk around in it. He wasn't sure what to think of it. He didn't have any trouble walking on it, it was only a small layer. He walked back and forth, looking at all the tracks. He picked some up but wasn't too impressed with the cold stuff. After about 5 minutes he wanted to go back inside.

Dawson is 16 months old! Wow, how'd that happen?! He's completely off jar foods now and is eating more new things. I just tried Soy again the other day. It's the only milk he can have, but he refused to drink it several weeks ago. Well he loves it now! I'm glad he can have that, though it sure costs a lot! They want $3 to $6 for a half gallon of Soy! It's nuts! A half gallon lasts about 4-5 days but he's drinking more as he gets used to it. He's still nursing too, but mostly in the morning and at night.

As for me, I'm 25 weeks now and I feel huge! I know a girl due a week ahead of me and she's so small still! I must be carrying an elephant or something! ;) Besides that, I'm also starting to retain water, so even though I've only gained 11 pounds so far, I look like I've gained way more! I'm trying to stay off my feet more, but it's kinda hard with a toddler to chase. If I'm on my feet for too long, my feet and calves swell up and hurt. Fun, eh? I have just under 4 months left, but I feel the same as I did at about 8 or 9 months last time! Makes me wonder how much worse it'll get in the next 4 months!

We've been working on cleaning and rearranging some things. Dan moved his computer desk to face a different way and Dawson loves it! We have a gate there so he can't get to his stuff since there's little stuff back there, but he loves being able to walk closer to Dan when he's on the computer. He thinks it's so fun to bring things to Daddy, like toys and things, so he can play with them too! Even when Dan isn't home, Dawson still throws toys over the gate and into his chair and all around it. So he has to dig out toys just to go sit down!

Throwing things over gates is fun, he does it to the kitchen gate all the time too. Since it's getting too hard to bend over all the time to throw the toys back over, I just leave them there. Dawson has now started to throw them back over the other way when he's in the kitchen, so it works out great!

He's teething his 2 lower canines right now, so he's been kinda fussy now and then. These are his last teeth to get in until his 2 year molars. Hopefully he'll get a nice break before those show up!

It was still snowing, but it didn't get to be much more than this

Dawson all ready to take his first walk in the snow
