Sweet Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes...

Sweet Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes

Gimme Gimme Some.

That's the song I sang when I started Graham on his FIRST veggie. Yep, we started with sweet potatoes and my lil oinker LOVED them. I thought he would give me a funny look as soon as I put it in his mouth, but nope. nothing. nada. just gobble gobble gobble. it was so incredibly adorable to watch him eat them because he was seriously smacking like crazy!

I don't know if you can tell in the video but he was holding my hand and the spoon trying to direct it into his mouth. so cute!! it was really hard trying to feed and video at the same time.

Well, my first night without my lil boy went pretty well despite the fact that I called mom just about every hour just to ask what he was doing. Chad and I missed him sooooo much and we were so happy to have him back home with us Sunday evening. I honestly don't know how much I am going to be able to do that. It was just too hard. My brother told me that I would do fine and that I will get to the point to where I am calling mom all of the time asking for her to take him when he gets into his terrible twos. I said, "Obviously we are talking about two different babies because my son is an angel and always will be." haha! Let's just hope he doesn't turn out to be like me. HELL ON WHEELS! ha!

I am so excited because Steven (my brother) is on his way home from Iraq. Oh, I am so stinkin happy!! He hasn't met his nephew yet and I just KNOW they are going to love each other so much! He has to go to Kansas for a week for his out-processing and then he will head down to Texarkana. I am going to go to Texarkana for about 5 days in early February to see him. He and Graham have a lot of catching up to do.
Until next time, lots of love from The Neipling's.

I LOVE your song! I will have to use that one!

I made up a saying and my kids loved it. I would say "Hawaiian Delight is alright." My son would grin so big that it would squish out the sides.
