lazy sundays

Weekends are all about some quality time with the little tyke. It's just the two of us on weekends as the hubby works those days so I get to have Dylan all to myself (minus when we visit the grandparents).

On this rainy sunday afternoon, lunch with my little man meant a bowl of yummy creamy mushroom soup, some crackers and his favourite side of cheese. He is a big fan of mushroom soup and I laughed my head of at the next photo.

Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you. My little man was holding this glass bowl to his mouth and was SLURPING his soup. I think he was a little annoyed at me for taking breaks in between spoonfulls and took it upon himself to, well, feed himself!

The greatest thing happened this afternoon though, and I was so glad I did not miss this --- Dylan was standing with no support when he suddenly started taking steps towards me --- and I counted 1... 2... 3... 4... and 5! Five steps and he plops down on the floor, smiles hugely and hurriedly crawls to me seemingly saying "Look, Mommy! I've finally done it!".

I picked him up and laughed and twirled with him in our living room for a good 10 minutes, rejoicing in his first few steps ALL BY HIMSELF. It's unfortunate the hubby didn't get to see it (and he was bummed) but there will be other 'firsts' that he will get to see.


On another note, I have just joined in on The Package Project! I know that loads of you are big fans of swaps so this might be another one you would like to join in --- I know I'm excited to be a part of it!!!

I hope you all have a lovely week!

He's such a sweetheart. I love that he's taken the initiative to have the soup himself :)

And congrats on his first steps. It's a shame your hubby missed it but as you said there will be other firsts.

Have fun swapping!
