Sometimes when I’m so sad I can’t stand to be alive I give Everett a bowl of dry cereal. Everett likes to take piece by piece out of the bowl and smash them on the ground. This is a good use of cereal in my opinion. It’s cheap… a half cup of cereal for 20 minutes of peace. Then he gets excited when we sweep the cereal up together. Win-win.
When a toddler is under two and falls and hurts the tip of their finger you’re supposed to bring them in just for a check up to make sure nothing’s affecting the blood supply to the end of the finger. Everett has fallen on his middle finger and it was really swollen and bruised so we took him in just in case. He was fine though. Just traumatized by the doctor talking to him. Everett’s my most shy child. Poor thing is terrified of people 🙁
You can tell it was his left middle finger, look how he was holding it out. Awww, poor baby!
Everett up and decided he wasn’t going to eat ever again this week. He’d scream bloody murder when I put him in a chair at the table or in his high chair. After literally not eating for a couple days and getting crankier and crankier and hungrier and hungrier I caved and gave him food while he watched cartoons. I don’t even care, if this works, I’m doing it.
We went for a family walk over at the lake. It was a gorgeous fall day!
So clearly we had a lot of fun looking through those telescope things and taking pictures. We headed up a hill next. We spotted a squirrel.
Then we hiked down to the lake and threw rocks in the water.
Everett was super excited to point out all the birds. This toddler loves animals and birds and bugs and yeah, anything alive 🙂
