It happens whether we want it or not! The boys keep growing, changing, and slowly needing less of me. Such a bittersweet thing! The middle lad has been showing signs of independence lately. . . A few nights ago, I found him furiously rubbing shampoo all over his soapy head and saying, "Look, Mom, I am a big boy and can wash my own hair!" :-) The following morning he surprised me by choosing his clothing and getting dressed. He was soooo proud of himself. It is a nice thing when your kids can shower and dress themselves, but it also is another step further from you and closer to self sufficiency. Bittersweet. . .

The littlest lad trying to get a sample of my Rice Crispies
Sampling his own mush!
The littlest lad is moving on as well. Today he met his first sample of cereal and milk and wasn't impressed! (Even if it was organic with a dash of Mommy in it! :-) As much as he puts everything in his mouth, you'd think he would be happy to put something nourishing in there! Since we will be making a trip in the near future, I thought it would be best to start him on some other food so he will not be so dependent on me. Bittersweet again. He is entering a new era and flexing those little wings.
