Ok, Ok, I so meant to blog on a daily basis, but things get so hectic I can't seem to find the time. I need to make this my "first thing in the morning" regimen, or a "bedtime" blog. I originally had so many different things that I wanted to post about but it took me so long to get here that I can't remember any of them. This week Jailen is out on Mardi Gras break & has been at home with me since Wednesday of last week (he was out w/a fever too). I didn't take him to any parades, although I really really wanted to. I sometimes find myself disabling him more than he already is. I think he could handle it now, but I didn't go "just in case". I have to stop doing that. He should be pushed more than normal, but I can't seem to stop babying him. Like the other evening we went out to dinner. I ordered him a grilled cheese sandwich, cut it into fours & proceeded to feed it to him. I clearly stated that he wanted to do it all by himself, so I pushed the plate closer to him & let him go. He took the first square & tore it up into little pieces. He then started on the second square so I told him that he had to eat it, not just play with it. "I AM!!" he said. So I let him go. He tore the entire sandwich into little bite-size pieces, then ate it one little piece at a time. I had no idea he could even do that, or that he would do that. I was so proud of him I couldn't stop saying it the whole time he was eating. He ate the entire grilled cheese sandwich all by himself. My little baby is a big boy..and WANTS to be a big boy. Why can't I let him?
