First sledding trip

Asa went sledding today!

I strapped him to me with the Snugglie and we walked to my moms! Boy that was tough. The snow was hard enough but strap a 26lbs. kid on the front of you and it was harder. His toboggan was all in my face. I had to hold onto Anna a few times. It was so funny! Asa loved it thought. It is funny because we tried the front carrier many times when Asa was small but it didn't work. Now at 2 years old, he can finally ride in it!!

I don't think I could make it back so Daddy pulled us on the sled behind the 4 wheeler. Asa doesn't like the 4 wheeler, in fact he hated it for a loooong time. He did whimper a few times but mostly he liked it. He even laughed when we went over a few little bumps!!

While we were at Moma's I ran the pump for Asa's lunch. He was in such a good mood though that I tried feeding him some applesauce. He ate it up! Then he wanted more. I found some Nutella and added it to a few more bites. He ate those bites too and the Nutella is loaded with calories! I'm gonna buy him some when we go the grocery store next. Judging by the snow it might be Wed or Thurs. though!!!

Tomorrow is a snow day and I'm hoping Asa sleeps past 6am! He woke up so early the last 3 mornings!!! On the mornings we can sleep in, Asa is up......figures!

Frist post!

After getting pretty frustrated with the other site, I thought I'd try this out! I'm a little nervous. A "real" blog!!! For a while I'll do both blogs but if it goes well, I'll just start posting here. So if you've kept up with the Caring Bridge, then you are up to date already!!

Asa shredding toilet paper!!! So many inchstones!

We had another good day in the snow! You really should see us, we are a sight! Since we don't get snow often, we don't have much gear! When it does snow, we pull out the box of winter wear and start trying it all on. Gracie wears the coat that Anna had when she was little. We have lots of coveralls and snow pants (bought on clearance) but you aren't guaranteed that it'll fit perfectly! We are red-neck snow bunnies!! And we snow ski with water skis and dumpster lids and car hoods!!! And that is my confession for the day!!!! But we always have a blast!!!

Asa is fully bottom scooting!! Tonight he scooted about 20 feet, from in front of the TV into the kitchen! He has opened the drawer under the stove and played in my pans. He pulled out tons of plastic food storage containers and has them everywhere. He opened the cabinet under the sink where the cleaning products are. He also shredded a roll of toilet paper!!! It may finally be time to baby-proof! He is slow as molasses though so I think we could stop him but we don't want to at the moment!! I do have to roll the TP back up and use it, can't waste that Barry informed me!!!

He also ate 4 bites of potted meat today. Then he had diarrhea. He wasn't too thrilled with it either but it has a good texture to start with and strong flavors which he usually goes for. Not bad for a first try. I'll probably try more.

Ha, I just took the TP roll away and he went back to the package to try to get another out!!! Little stinker!! I love it!!!
